im ignorant as fuck so bear with me while i tell you my opinions and feel free to own me online over it, but personally im almost amoral in a certain way, and when people tell me to go vegan its like when they tell me im personally contributing to imperialism by voitng for bernard sanders, or that its unethical to download mp3 and i should use spotify. im amenable to the argument that a communist world would necessarily be vegan but i dont see how me going vegan is going to do anything practically. i have empathy for the issue and as a teen i was vegetarian for 6 years and even now while i enjoy meat sometimes i still find myself gravitating towards stuff without it, it just is preferable to me. i could go vegetarian again easily but i love dairy too much to do anything else and also theres the question of how much harder it would make it to feed myself considring how much time i have to save for online activities. i care but really not that much to commit to it for a reason that mostly seems ethical and has no actiual benefit

#8578
lol my view of food is so utilitarian . i should commit fully and stock up on nutritional shakes such as off-brand soylent and live on that
#8579
my ethical views only took root once i stopped eating animal products, i started on it for the health benefits.

huh, i've always considered the touted health benefits to be totally bunk and the ethical argument to be extremely compelling

#8581
well i made it. im home and i have a pizza by my side. its a mini pizza. it cost one dollar each. you put it in the microwave and it getxs insanely soggy, which is my preferred texture, and you fold it in half and eat like a taco. takes 2min to cook. its called value corner and i buy them in stacks and thats how i keep myself alivre

im going to genderpost which i absolutely never do on principle, but i know 0 other trans men who are anything like me and i wonder why constantly. i try not to think about it too much because it upsets me. i am a feminist i promise
#8585
tbh 'go vegan' is probably solid health advice for your situation because pretty much anything would be healthier than living on microwave pizzas. but i tend to agree with your feelings on the topic. i am an occasional meat eater who has deliberately cut most meat out of my diet for a number of reasons, i appreciate the ethical argument for veganism but don't find it terribly compelling, also for a number of reasons, which i choose not to get into right now, but among them is the fact that individual consumer choices are close to meaningless imo.
#8586
reading that back i realise i neglected to put in a disclaimer that i am in no way judging you for that diet. do the necessary mate

going just on the gremlin nest of pizzas and junk food situation, you are definitely not the only one lol.

eating vegan won't automatically fix a quick disposable food fixation or shitty diet, there's a lot of factors in involved in that kind of lifestyle. vegans in a similar situation just end up eating nothing but larabars and chips

whenever i learn someone lives like this my first instinct is to insist they must come over for nice home cooked meal. i will learn your favorite food and i will cook it and you will eat it and i will send you home with extra dessert or else. i have big grandma energy. its important to note that this does not actually help, cuz like Petrol noted, this shit happens for reasons and you can't just brute force someone into a change in diet

im nae a vegetarian but living w one has made me feel less crappy on the whole + being on a limited budget w SNAP means Gremlin Food really really *really* is a Sometime Snack.
it's so difficult to get our kids and One Specific Kid out of a pretty limited ballywick of Carbs, Tomatoes, Dairy And Beans, though
#8589
Veganism is important to begin now so that you can be prepared for the mandatory rationing later
#8590
If you can afford a rice cooker, or even better an instapot, you can make lots of meals without leaving the house very often if you dont want to by buying bulk rice/lentils/veggies. Instapots are nice because you can make rice and lentils simultaneously in like 15 minutes
#8591
i can confirm even in the cheapest model of rice cooker 50/50 ratio of rice to red lentils results in glorious mujaddara (add caramelized onions, oil, spices etc afterwards ideally) - and it's probably the cheapest laziest macronutritionally complete meal you can grab
#8592
maybe i will, my monthly deposit of my NEET stipend just hit my account so i got a little bit of money. probably gonna send the rent to the roommate i havent seen in two months and i might leave the house to go get uhhh some kind of restaurant food since i have more than 15 dollar in my account rn
#8593
one of my other roommates is so nice to me haha, of course i added him on facebook and naturally i posted about the pizza thing a while back adn he cooks for me pretty often now. he just invited me down to eat sooooo im going to do thjat i guess
#8594
luring the hiki out of their room with food and only learning about them through their unhinged fb posts ftw
#8595
the lentil rice cooker idea is good. you can add some spices if you want to punch it up a little or just some salt because lentils taste pretty great tbh. i'd use brown rice too for texture and flavour but that's just me.
