Someone: “It’s too expensive to be vegetarian and get enough protein”
Can of black beans: *costs 85¢*
omg and then the "but i want something with flavor" acting like its impossible to salt and pepper some beans
@vy I blame this on the common knowledge that “protein” means “meat”
I would not be surprised if beef councils were at fault

let's say for breakfast i have a slice of toast and peanut butter. that's a third of my protein for the day.
if i go eat a grilled cheese sandwich with some french fries for lunch that's a third of my necessary protein for the day.
for dinner, maybe i'll have some buttered pasta with two pieces of texas toast. guess what? roughly a third of my necessary protein for the day.
that's not even including any snacking i might do (sometimes i have cashews at work)
IDK if I already ranted about this but the way MasterChef Australia handles vegan food vs MasterChef USA has always been a sore spot for me.
Australia challenged contestants to make a vegan feast for roughneck meat lovers. USA did a comedy YouTube clip where Gordon Ramsay cheated to beat a real vegan cook in a mini showdown.
We're addicted to garbage TV. :(
@vy honestly, it's not that hard to cook vegetarian (vegan can be a different story), a little spice goes a long way. I just wish I didn't have a carnetine deficiency...
