Go push your vegetarian lifestyle somewhere else, this is a conspiracy site, not the food network.
You dont see meat eaters making threads about the joy of eating a big, juicy T-Bone Steak do you?
You people remind me of some fanatical religion, hanging out in airports or knocking on peoples doors, trying to push your ideas on others.
Why is it always supporters of these alternate lifestyles are the only ones that are always trying to push their BS onto others that dont care?
Then, youll turn around and call us the intolerant ones.
I love vegetables and i love fruits but I like a big ol steak to go with it.Soy based "meat" is crap, tofu is smelly crap.

I'd guess it is because people believe meat eating is habitual and habitual activities are easier to curb gradually. Like those fake cigs that look like real cigs. It helps the person break the habit (transitioning to vegetarian diet) while minimizing the psychological effect.
Believe me, you grow up on St Louis ribs and then quit meat (for whichever reason) and you are gonna crave ribs. Sticky, saucy, succulent ribs. With fatty meat all over them.... droooooool
Well, if you cannot have them, you could go gnaw on a carrot or you could warm up some of those Morning Star ones. The Morning Star ones actually do the trick for me. Not bad at all.
As someone who has been feeling internally 'urged' over the past few years to go vegetarian, I do find it comforting that alternative meat-less foods are out there. I do really appreciate meat but I feel that as an advanced society we ought not be breeding animals in disgusting pens only to slaughter and eat them. I do eat meat, but I don't really like the idea of what is going on.

It all taste like crap.
I wouldn't feed my dog this, in fact if I did I think my dog would take a chunk out of me. Yes I have tried some vegetarian food and it does taste like cardboard.
You vegetarians make me laugh, you are all the same smelly hippy tree huggers who moan at everything, you moan about killing animals for food yet you own leather shoes, leather sofa, leather belt. Stop smoking the pot all day and you might discover how nice real meat taste.
If we stop killing the animals like, Sheep, Cows, Pigs the world will be over run with them and everyone will smell like a dirty hippy.
