Interesting actually that I know 2 people who have gone vegan since watching this. They are very bro science/Bro Rogan so haven't got much between the ears but the vanity of vegan lads having muscles has won them over.

Looks like it's working to win over men

I had a similar complaint about a big business-related dinner in a big hotel a few weeks ago. I asked to see the menu in advance to see if anything would be suitable. Starter: Melon; Main course: Vegetarian course of the day; Dessert: Selection of desserts (probability of them containing gelatin, or suet, or whatever else: very high). Yet, for the non-veg*ns, each of the courses was described in full detail. I decided not to go (I wasn't going to spend €30 on a few slices of melon, and on two other courses I didn't know whether I could eat or not), it turned out the main course was a vegetable curry. Zero imagination.

i would have less problem if they said they dont serve vegetarians at least thats honest rather than a token throwvsometing on a menu.

mind you they think that serving you a steak on a hot stone and you having to cook it yourself is some sort of innovation !

donegal town also won foodiest destination 2019 - as long as your not vegan or vegetarian though

Link saved. I reckon I'll be posting it a 100 times a day considering how much of a stick it's used to beat vegans with

Probably better to paste a link from a site without vegan in the title in that case!

Duckweed aka

Quote:
the company’s water lentil crop containing the ingredient Lentein® plant protein 
They've trademarked it already? Nice way to print money tbh.

Have you ever seen duck weed? Not something I'd be scooping out of the local pond and getting sued for doing so when there are better non trademarked sources out there tbh ...

You can't trademark that haha, they are trademarking a processed product from it.

Plenty of biotech companies have already patented plants - it's not new unfortunately
