    I don't cook lol but my girl does so when I get off work I will send some of her recipes. She is Cuban so if you like Cuban/Hispanic food then you will enjoy it.


    As for everyone else, I'm not saying we as humans are not suppose to eat meat, but so far I feel great since giving it up.

    I never liked milk, but growing up I had no choice haha but as far as cheeses and other dairy products I do consume. Not eggs tho, also never liked eggs growing up.

    I think this can be explained by not having access to proteins then. Now it's easier for vegetarians to get protein without eating meat.

    I don't think it's the meat itself that's unhealthy. Humans are omnivores, we're supposed to eat meat. We're not supposed to eat the amount of meat that is typically consumed in the average American diet. We're also not supposed to consume the rest of the crap that's in our meat that's a result of factory farming.

    A friend of mine brought up an interesting point of view; it's kind of weird that we're the only animal that drinks another animal's milk. Of course I countered that by asking him if breast milk were bottled would you drink that instead?

    I've tried soy/almond milk. Not bad. It's good with cereal, but nothing replaces a nice, cold glass of milk at the end of the day.

    Very little food is bad for you in moderation.
