Not since The Brady Bunch has a butcher seemed cuddly, and even then, Sam was pushing it. Now De Vegetarische Slager—the Vegetarian Butcher—is open for business in the Netherlands, and the owners are keeping animals alive and people's tummies full with their scrumptious "cuts" of faux meat. The glass cases are filled with lean, protein-rich options made from soybeans and lupin beans. Leg of lupin, anyone? Side of soybean? Finally, there's a butcher shop worth loving. While we wait for the owners to open a location across the pond, most grocery stores and health food stores stateside carry a great variety of meat-free options that aren't made by people wearing gross bloodstained aprons.

im sorry but not that many people are going to by into this. to meat eaters (like me) it just dosent look appetizing. maybe to vegans its looks good. but to meat eaters that i know yall are trying to convert this will just make them not want to try it even more. maybe if they could come up with something that looks and tastes good then yall might have a better chance.
