    In the spirit of part-time veganism, I believe that 2014 will be the year people realize how out of wack our food pyramids have become. My goal, at least, is to eat meat sparingly and vegetables much, much more.

    Great points being brought up I just don't agree with the cultured beef or any kind of food being engineered. But that's the anti-GMO in me speaking. Big kudos for the banning of transfats, that's definitely a good start to many other chemicals that need to be banned from the food industry.

      Yeah, I hear you. But food engineering is a tough one - all cooking means doctoring or engineering on some level, right? Where to draw the line is where things get murky (for me at least).

        You're right, even cooking could turn good nutritious food into chemicals that could potentially damage the body. There's definitely a fine line to be drawn with uncertainty of where it should be. In the end, I think it's all about knowing what you're feeding your body. Thanks for the food for thought Lara :)

          um - except current research suggests that it was the cooking of food that increased its nutritional value which enable us to develop large brains - if you want to stay back in monkey days, go the raw food - and don't forget to scratch your armpits while you're doing it - enjoy !

    Great round up, and yes on the part time vegetarian or vegan - for those people that can't commit to it 100% (myself included) it's a hell of a lot better than sticking to a meat heavy diet all of the time.

    Nice roundup! I'm basically a part time vegan, but I like sausage and bacon. I keep trying to convince people that this isn't weird: no dairy, but some meat. No one is buying it.

      Keep selling it Yasha, keep selling it :)

    • Lara Rabinovitch

      Bacon at least doesn't count ;)

      And as for sausage, in your case (Berlin) - when in Rome...

      I ultimately feel healthier eating more veggies-- but I know that I won't be able to cut dairy or meats. I think I may just stop eating transfats though (I love frozen pizza). I also want to play with the idea of recycling scraps from cooking-- like Rene Redzeppi does.
