This is per capita consumption in the US which has grown in population something like 15% in that time so unfortunately this mitigates total consumption level decreases, but it’s still good to see per capita consumption continue to decrease

then you must have done it wrong.

if you can't discuss the environment, human health and the relative costs of a plant-based diet without offending people; you might be a shitty communicator.

consider by comparison sexual assault; it's not if the dude who is being inappropriate being ok with it, its the people on the other side of the comments. what you said was almost certainly about ethics and almost certainly came off as didactic and morally superior. If your goal is to offend these people and turn them off veganism then fine, good job.

If you want to win people to your way of thinking you should start with how cheap plats are, follow with stuff about health and athletic performance or how people find it easy to lose weight and finish with some discussion of the environmental impacts.

I often respond by asking why they're interested in hearing more about my dietary choices.

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

"Hey why do you do this thing?"

"I do it because I believe it's right for these reasons-"

"WHY DO YOU THINK YOU'RE MORALLY SUPERIOR TO ME??"

For some reason they ask questions about it but don't actually want answers.

I definitely understand that reception because I’ve had it, but my tactic usually now is to just say “because I always feel way better” and people usually understand and are impressed that I’m able to keep it up.

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

"Are you saying that you're morally superior to me?!"

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

It’s really weird to me that you’re chucking the curry paste in half way through. Surely you’re meant to start the whole process by frying up the paste with oil and coconut cream?

Also, no fish sauce? That’s not Thai at all :P

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

Way too much shit in here. Stick with 3-4 veggies and a protein. I feel like this would totally overwhelm you. Might as well just throw anything you have left in your fridge in at this point.

I'd prefer the classic take out assortment. Your choice of protein, onion, carrots, maybe a coupe potatoes some bamboo and basic. Why complicate things.

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

Where's the GOT DANG tomato??? That's like the fundamental difference between this and a green one.

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

Looks good. Made me hungry

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

This would be great with tofu or some other protein source besides the garnish of nuts.

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

Thank you, will definitely try this. Looks delicious.

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

Be honest, this was distributed by a coconut farm wasn't it?

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

I just ate this, now saw it here. It's really tasty

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

oh my god that looks delicious

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

I make lentil soup with similar ingredients. It's probably the best soup I know how to make. I use less greens, and add sweet potato and mushrooms.

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

What's been done to the left overs tho

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

I am SO excited to make this!

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

Oh fuck, thanks for sharing

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

the only gripe I have with this is putting cilantro into the hot food. Normally where I live it's a condiment or you add it to taste... Though given that this is a hot curry I guess it gets a pass

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

Looks very good but that 2 cups of solid coconut cream is a no go for me.

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

Wow that looks very tasty! I've made similar things before, just not with so many ingredients. I think I should give it a try soon. :)

What can I use instead of red thai sauce? I live in Spain and I think I probably won't find it here.

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

Does anyone have any ideas for what I could substitute for the coconut cream? Husband is allergic.

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

I kept muttering ‘yes, yes, yes’ to everything in this recipe until the moment that one cilantro piece didn’t make it into the pan and it didn’t get cleaned up.

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

I want that now. I watched that like 3 times haha

Thanks for writing the recipe down!

I like how they go through the trouble of writing out zucchini/courgette and cilantro/coriander for US vs UK, but then they only say mangetout for the snow peas. At least they tried!

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

Done without question. Wonderful people who need some kindness in return for all of theirs.

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

Wow the landlord is a steaming sack of shit

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

it's amazing what this poor family has been through and they are still preserving. I donated and hope they make their goal asap!

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

Can you donate in pounds from an American credit card?

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

Idk why this made me cry. I hope they end up alright

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

Donated 40£

Not a lot but as much as I can at the moment. I hope they hit their goal. I can't believe their landlord!! Scumbag.

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 23:56

Thanks for starting this post! I hope as many people can find it and avoid eating meat. But that's optimism.. Realistically I've lost my own appetite.

I'm a transplant to USA, always been a vegetarian, now Vegan. The meat consumption gives me nausea. Just thinking about the turkeys. I think I will abstain from eating that day consuming only water..

Anyone else feel like me?

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 01:42

every time I see a greyhound I feel the need to go find mine and pet him

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 01:42

Never had the Bombay Spice flavored Chickpeas, but the Korean Barbecue and Falafel ones are the shit.

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 01:42

Had a lady tell me today that plant-based milks shouldn't be allowed to be labeled as 'milk'. smdh Fucking breastfeeders, amirite?

I honestly don't care what you call it, but when there's such an uproar about what vegans can and can't call their food, this is kinda a slap in the face. BUT, it also has me thinking that this is the dairy industry finally buckling because they're having to get verrrry creative these days, and in ballsy ways too. We're onto 'em though!

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 01:27

Sexy time here I come!

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 01:11

I finished it today too! Was thrilled with the ending

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 00:57

17 yo here. My mom said yesterday that she will be making meat again because she's gained weight. So I'm gonna be making my own stuff now.

Keep up the good fight my friend.

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 00:57

I bought some of the Jel dessert stuff. Going to make it tomorrow maybe. Was looking for agar, found that lol

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 00:57

This would be so dank on my coffee

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 00:57

Having spent a bunch of time in AL, call me quite surprised.

and, COOL!

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 00:43

If you think it's hard to stand-up against your family's wishes, think on how is it for the one at the other end of the fork

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 00:43

I was an omni that was indeed tricked by this once. I know better now!

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 00:42

I HOPE YOU'RE GOING TO RECYCLE ALL THAT PLASTIC

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 00:26

"...animals lack moral status..."

Well yeah if they base their whole argument on that assumption, then of course they'd conclude it's ethical.

But I know most omnivores don't believe that, otherwise they wouldn't be such welfarists, seeking "humanely slaughtered" and similar terms on their cellophane packaged flesh.

They want to minimize the guilt they feel so they don't have to inconvenience themselves by omitting animal products from their lifestyle.
