    In the summers I will sometimes go on a veggie kick. I can live for weeks at a time on good spicy beans and rice, enchilada soup, green leafies, fresh tomatoes, and all the chunky onion-and-garlic-laced hummus I can get inside a flour tortilla.

    But then it's over, and I must. have. meat.

    Whole cultures have existed on vegetarian diets for generations...

    Really? Do those cultures have distended bellies like chimpanzee?

    I'm a fan of the Paleo concept. If early man hadn't eaten meat. We wouldn't have had the material for our brains to develop, and swung from trees.

    YES! That and some sun-dried tomato hummus too, which was also very good.

    My favorite, though, was from a vegetarian restaurant in Blacksburg, Virginia called Gillie's. They made it with chunks of fresh onion and bits of garlic so strong that it would make your eyes water. I LOVED it.

    Is this a joke? I don't know you well enough to know your sense of humor...

    Congratulations, Jen. Those cookies look great! Have you ever tried vegan mayonnaise? It's heavenly, better than the real thing. And of course, it's much healthier.

    Given that egg yolks are one of the healthiest (and tastiest) sources of dietary fat on the planet, I highly doubt that either statement is true...

    1 tbsp Original Vegenaise
    Calories: 90
    Cal From Fat: 80 (89%)
    Total Fat: 9 g
    Sat Fat: 0.5 g
    Cholesterol: 0 mg
    Sodium: 85 mg

    1 tbsp Hellman's Real Mayonnaise
    Calories: 90
    Cal From Fat: 90 (100%)
    Total Fat: 10 g
    Sat Fat: 1.5 g
    Cholesterol: 5 mg
    Sodium: 90 mg

    The vegan brand is demonstrably healthier, pretty much across the board. It also gets its fat from canola (rapeseed) oil, which is a healthier source than Hellman's soybean oil. And while taste is a personal matter, if you tried it, I suspect you'd like it. Vegan mayonnaise is wonderful.

    "There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance - that principle is contempt prior to investigation."
