    Wow, these foods look great! Can’t wait to try them. I really do wish everyone would stop eating meat. What a better place this world would be for the animals.

    Javier: no one here is interested in your mislinformation. Why don’t you go to a site with like minded individuals. Most vegetarians believe that animals are as valuable as humans. You won’t be able to change us.

    To Lorie and Angie, Another thing which you should know is that by eating rice we are affecting our planet, our fellow human being by consuming what you call far healthier when the truth is that all foods are healthy, meats, grains, dairy products… if you dont believe me check out this article Seriously, should we stop eating?

    Sorry Angie as a human being who focuses on things that matter, humans I have to lead others in that same direction since you are being lied by this organization.

    To Javier, I’m sure your aware of the water shortage in our world, the oil shortage, global warming and hunger – right? Not eating meat isn’t just about not killing. If you didn’t eat meat either, you could take an active role in trying to save the whole world. All of those problems I mentioned could be improved, if not fixed, if everyone didn’t eat meat.

  • angie says:

    @javier why would you come to a site for NON meat recipes?? your the one with the problem – your an idiot who doesn’t know how to spell or stay off a website that isn’t intended for your needs.

  • Kathleen says:

    I am loving your recipes! They are a big help and inspirational. all hints for meat replacements, easy and yummy stuff, it’s a great help. Keep them coming, please!!!

  • Javier says:

    The last desert obviously doesnt need a good meat. A Pesto isnt a pesto if youre not on Italy and meats are the best accompainment, healthy one as well, a stew is nothing without meats, a burger isnt a burger without meat, the avocado salad you mention there would go well with any meat. Admit it we are killing plants eating them too, should we stop eating? Be brave and face it! You have problems.
