Default Is there an opposite to vegitarian?

My team is trying desperate to provide an in house lunch. Company paid.

So far the complaints have been -

No meat - vegitarian.

No pizza - Adkins Diet.

What does that leave? Salads?

I'm putting my foot down and emailing my boss that I am a strict carnivore and it's against my belief to eat vegtables.

yeah, seriously. i agree. i think it's fair to offer a vegitarian meal, but c'mon now, no pizza?!? that's just downright silly.

Where I used to work they would usually get a variety of sandwiches (eg roast beef, tuna, veggie), a big salad, and some deserts. If anyone is too fussy to eat any of that tell them to bring their own lunch.

Just order pizza. People who are on the Adkins diet are only doing it to lose a few pounds. People who are vegetarian are usually doing it for moral or religious reasons. It wont kill the Adkins folks to have 2 pieces of pie. But most vegetarians will get sick if they eat meat.

If the majority of people are omnivores, why not order a bunch of pizzas and a few salads?

There are always fruit salads, muffins, pastas, Mexican food, Chinese, etc.

Since the presidence of the "Diet" arguement has been accepted. Tell your boss that you are on the Protien diet. Basically, no bread or pasta. JUST MEAT!!!!! Not bad for a couple of days, but you would not believe how fast you get tired of steak.

You guys should go somewhere that has something for everyone like Chilis or Applebees.

You could get Salads (for the wussies..I mean, vegetarians), low/no carb foods for the soon to be heart attack victim (atkins diet) and meat or whatever for the rest of you.

You're not going to please the Atkins people, just screw 'em.

Side note, as someone who used to be really serious about nutrition and lifting in college, it's funny to see the horde of paunchy middle age office types on the atkins diet, or trying. Something about Bob from accounting saying things like "I'm watchin' my carbs" cracks me up. Maybe it's just me.

I told her -

I'm on a steak diet. I can't eat vegtables because of my morals, and they will make me sick. I can't eat pizza because it's got too many carbs, and chicken is against my religion on that day.

If they get to be difficult, so do I.

Vegetarians arent being "difficult" though. Saying that would be the equivalent to saying you're being difficult because you wont help me rape some chick. It's against your morals. I know you're half joking though. I's juz sayin', dat's all, y0!

I don't know about that. One of those is against the law. Hint, other than human meat, it's not the vegitarian part. They chose a life style to be different and to get attention. Now it comes down to being difficult.

That's where you're wrong. I chose to be vegetarian 8 years ago because I believe it's morally right. I dont give two craps about anyone's attention. There may be a few that do it for attention, but I havent met any.

You're one of the good ones, y2k... but there are a lot that do it simply for the attention. When I was in college, there was one guy in our Comp Sci group that was vegan. Whenever we were working on a project, I hated having to go to lunch. We always went together, and there were only two places on campus that had a salad bar for him... the ultra-expensive cafeteria, and the crap cafeteria. We couldn't ever go where the other 6 of us wanted... it always had to be one of those two places. He wasn't doing it because of any morals or beliefs... he was doing it because his girlfriend told him to and he apparently enjoyed the sex too much to tell her NO! We pissed him off the one day that we pointed out that his backpack had a leather bottom on it, and him being vegan and all.... that just wasn't right

Well, yeah. There are idiots of all kind. The good thing is the ones who do it for the wrong reasons usually dont last more than a year.

And there are vegans of 2 kinds too: vegan eaters and true vegans.
Vegan eaters just don't eat animal byproducts and don't care about leather, etc. True vegans think of it all.


Everyone can be dumb about things. I was a vegan eater for years - healthiest I've ever been!! - but now I eat meat so I watch my fat and, some times, my carbs. If you give up one thing, you have to look at another.




Your picky lunch people should just shut up or buy their own.

Edit: We always just, for picky people, would order veggie trays and meat trays from the deli and fresh breads - that way veggies can make salads and carbies can make sammiches and meaties can have veggies and meat.

I'm sure your legit, but it puts a HUGE strain on us normal people. The world is supposed to be full of tolerance for everything except the "norm".

You think it puts a huge strain on you? It's not nearly as bad as having two things I can eat out of every 30 on most menus. Besides, I wouldnt exactly call planning one corporate lunch a huge strain. Almost everybody can and likes to eat pasta and pizza.

See, people like this sucked when I was vegan. What about people who Don't WANT to be the "norm"? I was vegan because it helped me drop 40 lbs and get healthy otherwise. Going out to lunch with my guy co-workers, no one ever made allowances for me and everyone made fun of me. Group lunches? Forget it. I got bread.

But, you can bet, if I ordered lunch for them, that they made sure to INSIST there was plenty of meat, cheese, and fat.

I try to be sympathetic. but if 29 people eat normally, and 1 MAKES A CHOICE to be different, then who should be flexible? Every resturant has some form of meatless food. But if we all have to eat the same thing, it's horrible.

All I know is that cooking for my vegetarian girlfriend can be a bit frustrating. My vegetarian cooking skills consist of pasta, pizza, and stirfry. I like it all, but its damn limited. Anyone want to give me some good recipes or point me to a site that has some?
