Americunt here. I'm not even a vegan but I picked up these plant based nuggets because the packaging looked cool and holy fuck these are some gourmet-tier "chicken nuggets". Popped them in the air fryer and they came out amazingly. On a related note, I've noticed every vegan option I've bought recently has been superior to the real deal and I feel better after eating it versus how I feel after eating the real thing cooked at home.

Lab grown meat will be out in time to alleviate some of those concerns. Veganism as a concept is great but in practice a lot of people don't know how to do it. Takes a little more nutrition knowledge than other diets.

I take advantage of those cruelty-free alternatives regularly by buying meat sourced from local farms with regenerative practices. There is nothing inherently cruel about raising happy, healthy animals and killing them painlessly for food.

We are designed to eat meat. Our ancient DNA literally tells us this. Our stomach acidity is similar to that of vultures.

You are a gigantic pussy if you think that you're cruel for eating what is your natural diet. The lion is not any less "cruel" than the zebra. It's nature. You're only causing unnecessary harm to yourself by depriving yourself of food that keeps you nourished.

Pretty sure our evolutionary biology which took place over tens of thousands of years hasn't yet accounted for the fact that you have open access to every combination of protein sources you can think of.

>> No.15927348

>tens of thousands of years
Try hundreds of thousands of years, if not millions. We didn't just become homosapiens around Egyptian times, we've been around for a very long time. Eating this quantity of plant foods is still pretty new to us. Agriculture is not what we've been doing for most of our history.

>you have open access to every combination of protein sources you can think of
There are so many components in meat that we haven't even begun to study. There's a lot more to meat and protein than just macros, and the questionable aspect is whether we can actually convert those plant nutrients into our usable form.

Do you not understand what cruelty is? Even murder isn't inherently cruel. Immoral? Yes, killing a member of your own species is generally immoral. Cruel? Only if carried out in a cruel manner. It is absolutely possible for a human to murder another human in a painless, non-cruel way, even though the murder itself would be immoral. I abhor cruelty to animals, but the act of killing animals is not inherently cruel and there are ethical ways to raise and slaughter animals without any cruelty.

>> No.15928756

>esorting to "b-b-but it's the way of life and we're top of the food chain" arguments to justify unnecessary cruelty
God gave humans dominion over the animals and the whole Earth. It is man's God-given right to eat meat, and Jesus ate a fish-based diet, as He was from a fishing community. With all of His parables involving sheep, we can also guess He ate red meat, although I don't remember the Bible explicitly relating a time when He did as much (although it certainly doesn't say He didn't). That being said, if it's okay with God, it's okay with me

Lab grown meat will be used as filler protein so it will replace soy in everything. It won't ever replace actual meat though. It has no marbling or fat as it's just meat cells.

How are cars or antibiotics denial of reality? Vegans hide from the concept of death while their food choices just lead to even more death which they just don't think about. They can't bear the thought of a chicken or cow being slaughtered for food at the end of a happy and healthy life, but they don't seem to mind entire ecosystems being torn down and replaced with endless fields of monocrops draining the soil to nothing as thousands of animals are displaced and killed pointlessly. It may be a bit sad to think about an animal being slaughtered, but at least that death serves a meaningful purpose in feeding people unlike the deaths of animals who live in forests that get bulldozed to plant hundreds of acres of soy and wheat.

I source all my meat from local regenerative farms and I recommend everyone else do the same. Sustainable, ethical meat farming exists and you would do well to support it.

>> No.15930721

Mainly because of the endless fields of monocrops with nothing to replenish the soil but manmade chemicals. Regenerative farming involves rotating animals and crops through multiple fields such that the animals graze and poop to fertilize and refresh the soil which you can then plant things in while the animals move onto the next field. Veganism holds that not only is meat murder, but animal labor is slavery, so such a balanced system literally cannot exist under vegan principles.

>> No.15930787

Most of the monocrops with manmade chemicals get fed to animals, it's inefficient. Regenerative farming can be done without animals other than humans. We dump our shit and urine instead of using it on fields. You can plants legumes, even fast growing ones like lentils to replenish nitrogen in the soil very easily. Read more about farming, the animal agriculture is what makes it so fucked. 75% of land would be freed up if everyone went vegan, and we wouldn't need to monocrop and spray chamicals nearly as much as we do now.

>> No.15930806

Yes, but your digestive system can't change that quickly in such a short amout of time. Cooking food and preparing it in other ways made our brains big and civilization possible. But our brains got so big and good that we can manipulate our food more than ever, and we can make plant-based diets work without a problem. We modified plants to produce a lot more nutrients than they did millions of years ago, and now we can even make bacteria and fungi produce things they never would in nature.

I agree that vegans are weird about death. They assume all death is as tragic as when a family member or a pet dying when it literally isn't the same at all. Vegans would instantly assume I lack any sort of compassion because I raise and slaughter my own livestock for meat (because I don't like and don't wish to support factory farming or industrial slaughterhouses). Slaughtering an animal you have raised for that specific purpose is almost therapeutic. You feel a relief after it dies instead of emptiness and sorrow. A loved one will suffer immensely before they die, whereas the whole point of slaughtering livestock is to take a healthy animal and kill it as quickly as possible so it feels no pain.

My animals feed and manage their land while they are alive and continue to feed it after they die with the little inedible scraps I leave behind.

I can't explain it to most vegans. Vegans are so terrified of death it blinds them. They think I am literally just as bad as a factory farm.
