Good riddance. Modern vegetarianism annoys me in a way unique from normal meat eating. The “veggie” option on menus is almost always loaded with cheese or some other form of dairy. With the way meat eaters and even vegetarians talk about cheese, you’d think that it’s an edible form of crack. An infallible god among food. I resent the western obsession with cheese, because it really is an obsession. Almost every single excuse that vegetarians give for not being vegan boils down to “I just can’t give up cheese. I love it so much!”

While I don’t eat out all that much anymore unless I pass by a place that serves exclusively plant-based food, this is well deserved if it ends up being true. Vegetarians can eat vegan food, but vegans cannot eat vegetarian food

Somewhat good news:

The Death of the Vegetarian
Quote
Vegetarians outnumber vegans by almost two million in the UK, but they’re in danger of being cancelled by a plant-based takeover of the nation’s menus.
Quote
Not long ago, if you wanted a vegetarian meal, most restaurants offered at least one option – as long as you weren’t in a tiny village or France. If that veggie option involved cheese, then all the better. If it involved a bean burger, well at least you knew roughly what you were eating.

Today, vegetarians are starting to get annoyed. The once trusty meat-free option, they say, is being replaced by a vegan one. The Vegetarian Society has been receiving complaints from members who are peeved to find veggie dishes containing dairy and eggs are often absent from menus, jettisoned in favour of plant-based vegan burgers or vegan chilli.

Richard McIlwain, the society’s chief executive, says it’s “interesting to see how the eating out experience has changed”. But “interesting” is not how some of his members would describe what is on offer. “There’s always been a drive to replicate the meat experience, which is good and will encourage more people to give up meat,” he tells the Telegraph. “But it’s been to the detriment of more traditional vegetarian dishes, and we do get fairly regular emails from our members asking if can we raise this. It’s not to say the options are bad, but the vegetarian dishes seem to be either not on the menu or you have the option of cheese pie or a cheese sandwich. And it’s always Cheddar.”

Others scoff that where Cheddar is concerned, the chance would be a fine thing. When vegetarian entrepreneur Vicky Borman was filming last week, the on-set caterer offered either meat or an option that was both vegan and gluten-free. “I said to them, ‘I’m not vegan, I’m vegetarian. Where’s my cheese and cream?’”

The caterer made sure to bring her some cheese the following day. But, says the 43-year-old from Cambridgeshire, owner of CBD Angel, obtaining vegetarian food can be even harder in restaurants.

Smoking was nonexistent in Aotearoa prior to the colonial era which turned it into "New Zealand". Now we are turning it back into Aotearoa:

The German movement was the most powerful anti-smoking movement in the world during the 1930s and early 1940s.[1]
...
Adolf Hitler's personal distaste for tobacco[17] and the Nazi reproductive policies were among the motivating factors behind the Nazi campaigns against smoking.[18] The Nazi anti-tobacco campaign included banning smoking in trams, buses, and city trains,[1] promoting health education,[19] limiting cigarette rations in the Wehrmacht, organizing medical lectures for soldiers, and raising the tobacco tax.[1] The Nazis also imposed restrictions on tobacco advertising and smoking in public spaces, and regulated restaurants and coffeehouses.[1]
...
The term "passive smoking" ("Passivrauchen") was coined in Nazi Germany,[5]

No wonder Iadarola doesn't like it.

The colonial-era Western tradition of eating turkey for Christmas:

In the 15th century, Spanish conquistadores took Aztec turkeys back to Europe.[9]

Turkey was eaten in as early as the 16th century in England.[10]

While the tradition of turkey at Christmas spread throughout Britain in the 17th century,[10] among the working classes, it became common to serve goose, which remained the predominant roast until the Victorian era.[12]

I have always been annoyed by the Western-led brown rice fad:

Surprise! White Rice May Be Better for You Than Brown Rice

If you've ever been on a health kick or wanted to lose weight, you may have switched from eating white rice to brown rice. Brown rice is often touted for it's health benefits, while white rice has been demonized in many health-conscious communities. But is brown rice really healthier than white rice? The answer may surprise you.

The Rice Debate

There are a few reasons that brown rice is often considered the better option. The main argument is that it's a whole grain. The difference between brown rice and white rice is that brown rice is in its unprocessed, whole grain form. White rice, on the other hand, has had the bran and germ removed during processing.

As has been done since the Neolithic era. Were the Golden Age Aryans morons who put all that extra effort into pounding rice for no good reason? Of course not:

Quote
Whole grains are considered to be healthier because they contain more fiber. Fiber is a nutrient that's known to lower cholesterol, control blood sugar, and regulate digestion. It's true that brown rice contains more fiber than white since it is unrefined, but the type of fiber is important to note.

There are two types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber absorbs water to soften your stools in the digestive tract, making them easier to pass. It slowly forms bulk and triggers peristalsis, which are intestinal contractions that help waste move through your system. Not only that, but soluble fiber also ferments in the digestive tract to help promote a good balance of bacteria in the gut! On the other hand, insoluble fiber does not absorb water or ferment. Since it doesn't get broken down at all, it forms hard bulk in the intestines. When consumed in large amounts, it can actually cause inflammation, discomfort, bloating, gas, and more.

Brown rice contains insoluble fiber, and as naturopathic medicine doctor Liz Carter explains, this can take quite a toll on your gut. "Brown rice is high in harsh, irritating insoluble fiber. White rice is not," she says. "I have seen brown rice be very difficult to handle for my patients with gut issues. It’s better to focus on soluble fiber foods that feed your gut health." If you struggle with digestive issues like constipation and want to consume more fiber, consider adding more foods with soluble fiber to your diet.

Arsenic and Phytates

Two more reasons you may want to forego brown rice: phytic acid and arsenic. Brown rice contains phytic acid, which is known as an antinutrient because it actually blocks your body’s ability to absorb certain nutrients, like iron, zinc, and calcium. Eating large amounts of it can ultimately lead to vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Brown rice is also higher in arsenic, which is a toxic heavy metal that, when consumed over time, could increase your risk of diseases like cancer, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. Yikes!

We're often told that eating anything "white" that has been processed is bad. But in this case, processing the grain actually removes the inflammation-causing fiber (which makes it easier to digest) and lowers the amounts of phytic acid and arsenic, making white rice a healthier choice!

My tongue had always told me white rice was better.

Quote
The Bottom Line

All this being said, white rice does have a slightly higher glycemic index than brown rice does, meaning that it could elevate blood sugar levels more. If you already have type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, or high blood sugar, it's best to manage your portions when consuming carbohydrates in general.

STFU. We have:

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/human-evolution/aryan-metabolism/

The real bottom line:

Quote
As the wisdom of ancient eating traditions in India and China have long pointed out, white rice is a hearty, filling starch that's easy to cultivate, prepare — and to digest. So before you forego the white rice and choose brown rice, consider all the factors. White rice may be the more healthful addition to your plate after all.

DECOLONIZING YOUR DIET has become somewhat of a social movement.

On Instagram, there are more 15,000 posts carrying the hashtag #decolonizeyourdiet.
...
What is a decolonized diet?

For many Indigenous people, decolonizing their diets means removing western European influence entirely.

Indigenous food often includes fruits, vegetables, and herbs from one region. From supporting local farms to shopping for traditional ingredients, there are plenty of ways to decolonize your diet.

Decolonizing your diet involves learning how to connect with the land, find native ingredients, and prepare ancestral dishes. It involves a deep appreciation for the land you live on, and the food that comes from it.
...
“It's just understanding Indigenous histories and cultures where you might be living. Then, it's understanding how we build modern Indigenous foods, and how we create a philosophy doing that,” says Sherman. “It was invisibility of Indigenous perspective. There were hardly Native restaurants. There were barely any books on the subject. We're attempting to create a support system to bring this into the mainstream. People are starting to normalize Indigenous foods on a larger scale.”

https://www.yahoo.com/news/watermelon-stereotype-came-weaponized-against-153000846.html

How the watermelon stereotype came to be weaponized against Black Americans
...
The origins of watermelon can be dated back approximately 6,000 years ago when it was domesticated throughout Sudan, Egypt, Ethiopia, Libya, and Kenya.

Watermelon is an Aryan food, period. But fast forward to the colonial era:

Quote
Around the time of the Civil War, negative descriptions about African American watermelon-eaters started becoming more prominent.

According to researcher William R. Black, enslaved people would sometimes negotiate informal contracts with their owners to cultivate and sell their own crops on designated plots of land on the plantations they worked on. As watermelons were easy to grow, they became a popular choice. Black quotes one former enslaved person as saying, "We never had our own gardens, but we had small watermelon patches."
...
Post-emancipation after the Civil War ended, newly freed African Americans continued to grow watermelons and sold them to generate income for themselves.

"Newly emancipated Africans employed their farming and entrepreneur abilities to produce and sell items like watermelon and the like," Howard University Afro American Studies lecturer Dr. Jo Von McCalester told Insider. "Personal gardens and their ability to sell its goods after completing their obligations, fostered a taste of freedom driven by their own efforts and on their own terms."

However, this new economic model upset some former slave owners in the South, who were angered that formerly subjugated African Americans had carved out a lucrative business niche for themselves and were enjoying the fruits of their labor.

"This air of freedom among those formerly enslaved further humiliated Southern whites," Dr. McCalester said. "The sheer audacity for Freed Africans to persevere in spite of  their deplorable action, caused the concerted effort and sharp response of Southern whites to create a racist trope around the fruit and freed Africans."
...
Throughout the Jim Crow era, smear campaigns involving African Americans eating watermelon began to be spread, partially as a form of bigotry, but also as an attempt to squash African American businesses. Ads and ephemera used images of African Americans "stealing, fighting over, or sitting in streets eating watermelon," in an effort to "shame Black watermelon merchants," according to the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

Degrading African Americans by way of watermelon also acted as a ploy to derail Black people from gaining and sustaining positions of power.

"By associating the fruit with ideas like ignorance, uncleanliness, and laziness, refusing to accept their participation in society, politics, business, etc., is viewed as justified," Dr. McCalester said."Their consumption of watermelon was an outward expression of their inward inferiority."

The result?

Quote
"The stigma associated with dark skin, oversized smiles, and red lips eating watermelon, has caused so many to socialize younger generations to steer clear of the fruit, Dr. McCalester said. "The backlash and perception of being associated with the fruit can even be seen contemporarily, even if Black People don't fully understand the historic implications of consuming the fruit."

Anyone who likes watermelon (I do) should be proud (I am) of our superior taste:







especially compared to those who like Turanian foods such as dairy products:

Quote
The tax would be the world’s first on animal emissions, including those from burps and urination, which contribute to rising global temperatures.
...
As a byproduct of their digestion, livestock such as cows and sheep release methane — a greenhouse gas that causes 80 times as much warming as carbon dioxide in its first 20 years in the atmosphere. That includes methane in flatulence and manure, but the single biggest source of methane from animals is burps. Globally, methane accounts for 20% of greenhouse gas emissions, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Livestock accounts for 14.5% of total global emissions, according to the United Nations.

A largely rural, agricultural country, New Zealand has 5 million people and roughly 10 million cattle and 26 million sheep. According to government data from 2019, 37% of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions were from methane, and 88.4% of its methane emissions came from livestock. About three-quarters comes from cows, with the rest coming from sheep.

It just came to my attention that people in Taiwan no longer like to celebrate the significant Mid-Autumn Festival (Moon Festival) the traditional Chinese way i.e. lighting fancy lamps and eating mooncakes and fresh seasonal fruits while appreciating the luminous full moon on the 15th day of the Eighth Lunar month. Instead, the most popular celebration now is to have a BBQ party that night, with special emphasis on grilling MEAT!

At one time, Taiwan was a place where one would find the vegetarian diet quite common among its population due to Buddhist influence. How sad!

How Queen Elizabeth Has Impacted What We Eat and Drink

she had other food and drink indulgences like poached salmon, delicate tea cookies, and scones with jam and clotted cream. Here are a few others:
...
The queen began every day with a pot of Early Grey, a traditional bergamot-scented black tea she drank with milk and no sugar. Her devotion to the flavor ensured its popularity throughout the world, making it the fifth most popular tea flavor globally, according to Fresh Tea. It is the tea most associated with royalty in general and Queen Elizabeth specifically, and there is no question that its popularity was enhanced by being her majesty's favorite.

We need to change this back:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longjing_tea#Legends

Quote
Longjing tea was granted the status of Gong Cha, or imperial tea, in the Qing dynasty by the Kangxi Emperor.

Please personally try both side by side and taste the difference. Then you will know the aesthetical inferiority of Western royalty compared to non-Western royalty.

Back to previous link:

Quote
Queen Elizabeth adhered to a daily teatime meal; her preference for delicate sandwiches with the crusts cut off was well-publicized. Her favorite version was reported to be smoked salmon with cream cheese.

I have encountered many restaurants which cut off crusts from sandwiches. We should try to reverse this trend. I try to ask for crusts to be included when ordering sandwiches.

Quote
A longtime sportswoman, Queen Elizabeth frequently dined on venison, wild birds, or other game — often sourced on one of her properties — or salmon fished from the River Dee at Balmoral Castle. The queen's preference for game meats even extended to more casual meals; she was, reportedly, a big fan of hamburgers made with ground venison. She usually skipped any potatoes, pastas or grains at her evening repast, but almost always had room for dessert.

Just another subhuman. See also:

Price explosions: German supermarkets attach anti-theft devices to staple foods
...
groceries now apparently have to be provided with anti-theft devices based on the English model: the first citizens seem to be driven to acts of desperation in view of the price explosions. This does not affect high-priced items such as champagne, but staple foods.

What do our enemies mean by "staple foods"?

Quote
A supermarket in Berlin-Weißensee has now attached security markings to some types of meat — yellow stickers with the inscription “Secured article”. While cheap meat with the husbandry level one, such as rump steak, lamb skewers, steak from the prime rib of a young bull or Argentinean steak, is secured here, the yellow warnings in a Lidl branch in Tegel are for higher-priced meat (beef fillet, steak and soup meat).

The anti-theft devices also seem to be used in other supermarket branches. On Twitter, a user shared a photo showing the yellow stickers on butter. She wrote: “I think this is insane, Lidl! Have we gotten to the point where regular butter has to be protected against theft with a security tag?”
...
Additional security measures are already being taken in Great Britain. Supermarkets from the chains Sainsbury’s, Coop, Tesco and Aldi provide baby milk, vitamin supplements, steak, cheese and butter.

Actual meaning of staple foods:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Staple_food

Quote
Typical examples include tubers and roots, grains, legumes, and seeds. Among them, cereals, legumes, tubers, and roots account for about 90% of the world's food calories intake.[1]

Early agricultural civilizations valued the foods that they established as staples because, in addition to providing necessary nutrition, they generally are suitable for storage over long periods of time without decay. Such nonperishable foods are the only possible staples during seasons of shortage, such as dry seasons or cold temperate winters, against which times harvests have been stored.

However:

Quote
The dominant staple foods in different parts of the world are a function of weather patterns, local terrain, farming constraints, acquired tastes and ecosystems. For example, the main energy source staples in the average African diet are cereals (46 percent), roots and tubers (20 percent) and animal products (7 percent). In Western Europe the main staples in the average diet are animal products (33 percent), cereals (26 percent), and roots and tubers (4 percent).

All who consider animal products to be staple foods should be prohibited from reproducing.

Back to enemy article:

How could things have gotten so bad in Germany, which is said to be so rich that people are forced to steal the food they need because they can no longer pay for it?

Civil rights groups, including Al Sharpton-led organization, urge USDA to fix ‘dietary racism’ in school lunch programs

Twenty-eight civil rights and health care groups announced Tuesday they have requested that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) address “dietary racism” in national school lunch programs, raising concerns to the federal agency about forcing millions of minority children to drink cow’s milk without allowing them a healthier alternative.

In a letter to the USDA’s Equity Commission, the groups said the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) only incentivizes dairy milk, a policy they called “inherently inequitable and socially unjust” because children of color are more likely to be lactose intolerant — meaning they cannot fully digest sugars in dairy and can suffer from adverse effects after consumption.
...
“Black, Native American, Asian and Latino kids are being punished for their race and heritage.”

Exactly.

Quote
According to the civil rights and health groups, 80 percent of Black and Latino people, more than 90 percent of Asians, and more than 80 percent of Indigenous Americans are lactose intolerant, compared to 15 percent of White people.

We are less on average less Turanian. Current USDA policy is designed to benefit the more Turanian.
