I have and you're wrong. Guess you better look em up and report back to me. I have nothing to prove - you made the statement and got called out in your error.

Again, they're complete. You obviously haven't looked them up, but I am done arguing about it.

Here's a link. The information is at the bottom. If you don't trust Wikipedia, then do another search:

Complete protein - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I wish I'd be a vegan or vegetarian due to my concern for animal suffering. Absent that, I only buy animal products that I know were not the result of industrial agriculture (along with the suffering that goes with it).
A local farm has its own mean and slaughterhouse down the road, so no factory farming (or antibiotics, etc.) While I recognize that the stuff I buy is healthier than regular products, my primary reason is animal suffering.
Pate and veal were off my menu a long time ago. There's no way to produce it that bears any relation to a normal animal life.
I would have no health concerns about being vegetarian.

You're right, I apologize. I looked up carbs, fats & proteins and they are all listed as carbs. Guess we were not thinking in the same terms. Oh well...that's often the case with forums.

I love vegetarians.....more bacon for me!

One of my kids are vegetarian. It's his personal choice and no one cares one way or the other. It is his body. We all respect his choice. When I cool for a family meal, I always have something cooked just for him without meat and the other things he avoids.

I can assure you there will never be a shortage of bacon, even if there were no vegetarians.

That is a comforting thought! I truly love the stuff cooked in just about everything.....and fried on the side.

I was given to understand that true vegetarians don't eat things from animal sources--like dairy.

Vegetarians are great...with ketchup.
