It's stupid that you do!
I know it is in jest, but there are too many people who try to convince the other about the superiority of their own standpoint. I drank coffee as a kid, with lots of sugar and milk. Milk was being touted on TV as "the white engine" in those days, and sugar is simply a form of fuel.

That's relative. I'm taking a lot of poisons, some over IV. Whatever keeps me moving, I'll take it.

What did maggots and cockroaches ever do to you? Confused | :confused:
People will eat even rats before they consider eating maggots. Those are a sign of decay, and there's a natural barrier to eating food that's gone wrong.

I heard a priest make that claim once too, and I'm very happy to not be a priest. Technically, you may be missing a bit B12, but that's hardly a worry nowadays; just take a supplement.

I could really use coffee, I'm not a morning person, I sometimes mix it with hot chocolate, but coffee really tastes bad.
Pretty sure Starbucks has something coffee-related for your sweet tooth Big Grin | :-D If not, there's this german instant-coffee that tastes like hot sweet vanilla-chocolate milk. I forgot the name, but will post it as soon as I see the sign again.

I like the meat replacements better (and some even taste like meat).
Meat is lots of calories with little to no fiber and a good idea for those who have trouble digesting stuff. Combine that with the perception that some meats are delicious, and we have two extremists preaching to another.

I made my own seitan last year. Simply using flour and a (mushroom) broth cube. Easy, cheap, and tasteful on the BBQ. Tasted just like meat would taste. So, my assumption that you are "missing out" may be simply wrong Smile | :)

The taste of American style bacon is incredible; but so was the vegetarian pizza that a friend of mine made, and I haven't been able to come up with a better non-vegetarian version yet. No, didn't even contain fake meat, and I didn't miss the meat either.
