Vegetarianism and Veganism and fake meat

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) A great many vegetarians and vegans who were once omnivores, as humans are designed to be, seem to have never gotten over the fact that they have no meat in their diet and need to have fake meat in the form of this or that soya product. I do not wish to attack any vegetarians and vegans and, in fact, I digressed somewhat, and for that I apologize but not for saying what I did.

‘Vampire Diaries’ Star Nina Dobrev: Vegetarian Fail or Good Example?


Somerhalder’s co-star Nina Dobrev gave it a good try as well, as the starlet (who plays both Elena and Katherine on the show) went vegetarian for a few months. Sadly, those few months were as long as Dobrev’s vegetarian effort would go. She recently told Seventeen Fitness that she has given up the vegetarian diet after having problems with energy levels…and being too skinny. It made me think: I need a burger — a beef burger, not a soy burger.&#.

The Explosive Truth About Veggie Burgers

Green Prophet

There are several compelling reasons to re-think veggie burgers and other non organic soy-based products. Until recently, many vegetarians have been all too happy to jump on the veggie burger bandwagon for a yummy protein fix , believing in earnest that theirs was a healthy choice that benefits the environment. In the 1950s, the United States abandoned the former practice of extracting soy protein mechanically (using pressure) in favor of a newer, more aggressive method.

However, most on the market are full of soy products.

By comparison, soy planted over the same area yields just under a ton of protein per year. Insect-based feed prices fall between the soy meal and more expensive fish meal.
