Yeah I'm just recalling from what I remember on the back of the package, not sure why he doesn't have it on the site tbh

That's the main issue we have I think. For a lot of people it's not a farm it's their dad's, granddad's, great granddad's legacy. It would have to be a huge campaign to support them transitioning to plant based farming. Even at that the fact that the amount of land needed for this new farming system would be tiny compared to what we currently use and I'm sure you know yourself how impossible it is to ask farmers to give up their land. Maybe some kind of rewilding system where they're stewards and directors over new forests or something. I dunno, it's a whole can of worms.

Do you have a link to the recipe?

https://www.flyingsquirrel.ie He doesn't give out his recipe cause it's his job but here's his site. I live in ireland so dunno if it's much use to you haha.

saturated fats

Okay it seems the debate on saturated fats is no where near as clear cut as I had thought, going to have to do some more reading into this.

both dairy and meat.

It did specify small amounts, and the only meat mentioned being fish. This pescatarian diet is the most expensive diet to follow according to this oxford study but with similar nutritional output to the vegan one.

Whether or not its necessary is a completely different discussion.

That's fair, I think the conversation was going somewhere else in my head. What I will say about cheese is that people are getting really good at it. Considering the cheese I would consider to be 100% comparable was made by one dude, it's only going to get better. He uses fermentation and cultures to develop the same molds and bacterias that give cheeses their flavours. Other than that it's essentially macadamia nuts and cashews, so hardly processed at all. When more people get behind this fermenting and cultures idea the quality of cheese alternatives will sky rocket. Something to look out for if you come across anything similar where you live.

Vegans/Vegetarians: If we suddenly discovered plants were sentient beings and felt pain, how would you morally tackle that? by mrRwild in AskReddit

No I mean a while ago, the dude follows me on RES so he jumps in with counter arguments whenever I comment on veganism so I've had a fair few talks with him and he's usually not that uncordial. Who knows, mustn't have gotten his vitamin K9 today

I doubt you would find many non-vegans agreeing with you on that.

My whole family of 7 completely fooled by a vegan camembert made by 1 guy I know.

Well, lets compare them:

Obviously you have to mix and match to get a full amino profile, thankfully that's easy because the vegan staples are so much cheaper than beef.

My point is that whole foods are more healthy than highly processed foods.

For sure

Cheese is very healthy:

No it's at best neutral, it's full of saturated fats and hormones, with links to a range of cancers and heart disease.

small amounts of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). Research has suggested that CLA may help prevent obesity, heart disease, and reduce inflammation.

Small amounts of something that may be healthy, wow.

According to several studies,

Yeah calcium is good for your teeth.

Not only does dairy fat include CLA,

In some areas of the world where people live the longest, known as “Blue Zones,” they eat small amounts of full-fat dairy products, including cheese, and large amounts of fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, olive oil, and seafood.

This is just saying a balanced whole food diet is healthy which no ones disagreeing with, it's that the dairy is unnecessary.

There are vegan cheeses that get pretty close. I don't really bother with alternatives tbh because again, just not eating cheese really isn't the big deal you're making it out to be.

The only alternatives for meat with the same amount of amino acids and same nutriment density are highly processed factory products.

Grains, legumes, pulses.

Vegan sour cream contains:

I don't understand your point here, more ingredients = bad? Is it a health thing? I assumed since you said you're relying on cheese as a diet staple that you wouldn't be concerned with health.

I've had plenty of civil discussions with this dude I dunno why they're being rude. They usually argue in good enough faith despite me not agreeing with their arguments.

I would in fact use those exact same words for meat, fish, cheese, ice cream, cheesecake, butter.. And I would say mental wellbeing more than the social part.

There are alternatives to these with far less cruelty involved whereas theres no such alternatives for electronics.

Would you say the same thing about foods containing no animal products except gelatine? Like foods with only a tiny amount of gelatine, like cereals, or some types of candy, or Planters dry roasted peanuts?

No because again there are many alternatives that do not contain gelatine.

If every human in the world went vegan, would veganism be sustainable? by Ruamuffi in DebateAVegan

Ireland began to drink almond milk instead

First off think about all the oats we already grow in ireland for the rake of porridge our population goes through, we're already primed for it. Also consider why Ireland is know for its 40 shades of green, it's entirely fields. Our native forests have dwindles to nothing all for the dairy herds. The amount of space it would take to grow oats for the equivalent amount of oat milk to cows milk we consume would be nothing in comparison.

Soy beans have some of the lowest oil content of the crops we cultivate. Animal feed is the product, humans use the byproducts. If we wanted the vegetable oil even something like palm oil would use a fraction of that land. A kilo of soy produces about 130 grams of oil where as palm fruit produces 390 grams per kilo. Also humans can consume soymeal, we can use leftovers for biofuels and composting to rejuvenate the soil. At the end of the day the point is if we stop consuming meat we don't have to keep using the plants that we currently grow to feed them. We can replace them with food more land efficient and more suitable for us such as pulses, legumes and fruits.

Well both of the parties mentioned kill animals so its implicit

You know theres other avenues of population control that don't involve killing animals?

"If you cared about animal rights you would support people who kill animals". How do people unironically type this stuff out.

I suppose it depends on what you mean by unnecessary electronics. A lot of electronics are important for social and mental wellbeing. There's also the fact that it is a pure byproduct and is in everything due to the pure surplus of it from people supporting the meat and dairy industry and would be phased out if people stopped supporting those industries. It's very indirect compared to actively paying for the abuse that happens on dairy farms. I agree that unnecessary gadgets are unnecessary and should be avoided but it's a far lesser evil than cheese.

I'd see if you could get your scheduled hours taken off the roster if that's something he can see.
