Shannon: I will not curse you for your meat/fish habit. I'm not a better person because I don't eat animals. What a person eats/drinks does not determine their value, their worth. You are in the habit of eating meat, it is your way, your tradition. Honestly, some people make really crappy vegans. My body just doesn't like meat. Seriously. It rejects meat. It ejects meat. My conscience and psyche reject it too. I'm the one that has to live with that and quite frankly I never liked animal products/animals as food.
Could it be a blood type thing? I don't know, but I'm a type A. Maybe it's karma? I just can't sleep at night with a cooked dead creature swimming in my intestines. It gives me nightmares. I am extreme and I know this, but hey...I'm true to me, to my body and my heart and my soul. It is my choice to be an herbivore and yours to be an omnivore and we both respectively have to make our beds and our minds. Does that make sense? Basically, I'm not cursing you or trying to change you. Maybe, it's just a mouthful of Gestalt in the middle of the afternoon...but you are you and I am I...and well neither of us exists to live up to each other's expectations!

Guilty. If you even want to let a few shrimp go swimming in that soup go for it. Just pop a few out of the freezer. Maybe toss in a few carrot slivers or well...a shitake mushrooms or well...something? I always think of swimming pools when I eat soup. SHARK attack. Lily pad mushrooms in my soup.

Hey Wind- have you had the fake Chinese shrimp? They're soy, and vegan, and super yummy. You don't seem like a substitute type of person, but we got them as a special treat. And fake salmon is the absolute best. I wish we could still get some around here!

You're right--I'm not a substitute type. I've had the fake shrimp, though and other "faux" delights. Fake squid, etc. I used to love these faux tuna steaks, years ago...but they stopped being available. I think the company was called Mo something or other. The other faux treats I've sampled have been either at Asian restaurants or Vegetarian fast-food places and that was years ago. Soy makes me feel really ill though, and my doctor told me not to eat it. I had some bloodwork done and it came back showing sensitivities/intolerances to the stuff. I just eat plain old real food. I've gone back to my as organic as possible philosophy which I've strayed from to due skin/breathing problems mostly. (Allergy attacks) When I say I'm allergic to an unbelievable amount of things, I'm not kidding. I can only wear cotton and a few other fabrics that I'd rather not wear.

But faux foods are fun. If I'm feeling fishy I just eat corn!

I didn't think you were pedantic in the least-just because i do waver toward wanting to "veg out"....but I don't think I get fully full without protein. I do like most meat, too, I guess...but ideologically I like the concept of veganism.

Are you a visual too? When people tell me their eyes almost poppede out, I see that exact image in my head and crack up. i'm so vivid. I love the swimming analogy, but I think I'll keep the shrimp out of my soup for fear of them screaming when I eat them. (AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! just like the lysol commercial!)

I have hundreds of allergies-including shellfish, i've been told, alcohol, and kiwis(I believe, it does make my tongue swell) and asthma and IBS and GERD. I think it's all connected with sensitive little bodies. All my problems are due to a hypersensitive body! great, delicate, large flower.

By the by, I LOVE your new photo. You look like someone I know, though I can't remember who at the moment...

Yes, I'm a visual. I think pictographically--pornographically? I eat with my eyes, my nose...all of my senses. I even eat with my ears. Do I eat out? I haven't been eating out enough lately. Presentation to even only one's self makes a huge difference, even if it's coming out of a box or a package or plastic, etc. If I'm going to let it enter my body through the orfice that is my mouth, it must live (?) up to certain standards, certain ethics. Enough. It just has to look good, or at least interesting...I like to play with my food, that's why I bother to prepare it. My carrots have got to have that yang!!! I'll stop babbling, but yes,yes, yes!!! I've got to eat with my eyes...it has to keep me coming back, cooking (not with gas!) it has to have that "WHEN HARRY MET SALLY" deli scene effect, i.e. "I'll have what she's having" (just hold the PICKLE, s.v.p.)

Incidentally, I've got eyes that sometimes "popeye" out. You, dear Shannon, are highly visceral. You crack me up.

Kate, IBS-D.
