If you’re a vegetarian, you won’t be one for much longer after reading this


By web gangsta | Published:

We know a few vegetarians, and a handful of vegans too.

The vegetarians? We can deal with them. The vegans are a bit more difficult when inviting over for dinner, if you’re intermingling with non-vegans at the same meal.  Sure, it can be done – you just have to be careful.

Then there are those vegan friends who are no longer vegan. While they were so adamant about sharing the vegan lifestyle with others, they weren’t quite as vocal about when they switched back to being a carnivore.  Wish we had known that before we invited them back over for a meal.

Who eats more meat, China or the US? (You’ll be surprised by the answer)


By web gangsta | Published:

People in China are stereotypically believed to live longer, healthier lives – primarily based on their dietary habits. And as stereotypes go, that’s really not a bad judgement call to make on anyone’s part. Who wouldn’t want to be naturally considered healthier than those around you, solely based on your heritage or where you currently live?

Well, perhaps there’s something more at steak (HA!) than what we think is happening, diet-wise.

How bad are food prices rising? Pork and beef way, way up


By web gangsta | Published:

More and more Americans are being hit with higher grocery store bills, and it’s not all due to rising gas prices leading to an increase in transportation costs.

No, you aren’t seeing things when you browse through the “new low prices” sign at the grocery store — those “low prices” really aren’t lower than what they have been. In many cases, those “new low prices” are just a highlight of “hey, we don’t charge as much for this as the other guy is, but it’s still a higher price than you’re used to paying”.
