Re: Vegetarian Cruising

This guy is not only funny, his recipes are pretty good. (some language, be advised.) From him I learned about 'seitan' which is a wheat gluten meat substitute.

Re: Vegetarian Cruising

Eat modestly and moderate your your diet to what is necessary to keep fit. When sailing I eat more than being at home. Since the boat is already half my home I eat more because of being all time outside and the low temperatures require more calories.
Probably less so in (sub)tropical climates but that we don' t have here.

Yes he is funny. But he overdoes it on sugar and oils.

The following link is too much information for most. Those with an intellectual curiosity and interest should read.

Re: Vegetarian Cruising

as the writer stated--the evidence is not conclusive.
sugar does not cause diabetes. producing not enough insulin is th cause of diabetes. is a pancreatic thing. NORMAL souls dont need insulin.
one is able to sort out the differences and use sugar not refined and in moderation. fruits have sugar. so do sugar cane and sugar beets. white sugar from refineries has chemicals in it. not so great--i call it death sugar.
as for me being a meat eating queen---i believe queen is a term used for gay males.
i am omnivorous and not a gay male.
moderation in all things is good. overindulgence is not good. doesnt matter what it is one overindulges in.
fat/obesity is a product of upbringing and teaching kids to over eat to shut em up. address that, you address much of the problematic morbid obesity in usa.
noone addressed the overeating of chips and other nasrty snack foods parents will shove into kids faces because kids make noises. that is a lot more pertinent to the obesity problem than is being a proper omnivore.
as for ingestion of meat as a food--food is energy. without energy intake, one does not function. the liver of ones own body creates 1/4 the cholesterol NEEDED by ones body for doing work/ work is fueled by energy. food is converted into energy. saying food is not energy is a fallacy. rethink.

have fun and eat well but not overindulgently.

Re: Vegetarian Cruising

Seems to be right. Eating is subject to discipline. And also a matter of blood. The bloodtype of man is responsible for his metabolism and certain races are a very subject to obesitas according to Boyd & Asimov.

Unless inherited by genetical issues, obesitas is a matter of discipline. You may find in certain social classes the majority of people suffering of obesitas. Contaminated food with genetically manipulated grow stimulants and hormone treatments of livestock is another source of growing fat bodycontent.
Frequent visits to MacDonalds and the like will do the rest of the damage.

As expected, you didn't read the article.

Actually diabetes is an auto-immune disease and it is (or can be) triggered by food. Not just obesity as in Type 2 diabetes -- but protein has now been implicated in Type 1 diabetes.

Re: Vegetarian Cruising

Hahahaha! Joke's on us!

I just noticed this thread is 4-1/2 years old. SailFastTri revived it to challenge something OldSarge posted, thus fueling the herbivore/carnivore dispute.

But what if you only have a week left now and giving up meat will add 5 years???...

A post as this is positive proof that eating meat is not brain food!

You posted here why? To take a poke at someone with a healthier lifestyle? Your made out of meat also, so that makes you fair game for the next hungry soul with that attitude.

Re: Vegetarian Cruising

Does that say something about the mental acuity of Vegans versus Carnivores?

Anyway we all are "meat" - and there is no end of things that are actively and actively interested in eating us from "flesh eating" Necrotizing fasciitis to your local lion or crocodile in the zoo come feeding time.

But the question was about being able to maintain a "veggie/vegan" lifestyle while cruising . . . And IMHO, be yee vegan or carnivore you will find out that subtly your diet will shift towards the original "human" diet of almost all vegetables/fruits/roots with a little "meat" added. Meats are both expensive and nowhere near the type most North Americans are used to finding in their supermarkets.

You will find that the islands are covered with free roaming goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, and even cattle. All are eating what grows up out of the ground - not feedlots or factory raised animals.

Chickens keep the lawns and areas free of bugs and grubs while goats and sheep are the "grass cutting" machines. The joke is that when your "lawnmower" stops working you have it for dinner.

Here are some of the favorite dinner meats of the locals besides chicken:
