One way you might be able to find out is to post something on the community bulletin board at McFoster's Natural Kind Cafe (located at Farnum and 35th I think). And if you have not yet been to McFosters you should go! They have tons of delicious vegan food. Plus its a great place to frequent when you feel surrounded by dimwit steak eaters who have no apparent respect for your choices.

Easy Stacy, have you ever thought about getting that temper checked out? I'm sure those outbursts you display on C-D could be dealt with in some fashion.

I simply thought to myself what life would be like w/out any food items which come from a living beings...wait, aren't plants living beings also?

Vegan-Schmegan, just eat whatever food god has blessed you with.

By the way....as long as the moral compass, Stacy, graces us with her thoughtful comments, I will point this out.

The term 'Vegan' originated from the term 'vegetarian' sometime in the 40's. It was changed because Vegans figured out they needed animals for nutrients (calcium and other vitamins) and they could not be supplemented with other items at the time. So they chose to add dairy to their diets.

Do these trendy little angels they call vegans understand dairy cows are the most used, abused, and mistreated farm animals there are? Do they know that after these dairy cows are spent they are ground up for low quality meats, as well?

If it's taste, I can respect that. But if it’s the judgmental "PETA" type S*it, then get a frickin clue.

No, Vegans are the ones who don't eat Dairy Products, Vegetarians do.

Crikey dude I was taking a dig at you (and Omaha culture in general) but there was really no need for this. As a meat eater (ie. the dominant culture) you seem awfully threatened by vegetarians/vegans.

Omaha is a difficult place to be vegetarian so I can imagine it would be even harder to be vegan. I was really taken aback when I moved here by the prevalence of meat culture, which I assume has to do with the history of having stockyards as a dominant economic enterprise for so long. But my husband and I thought it was hilarious (and a little disturbing) that every restaurant has to have the moniker "grill" tacked onto the end (even some of the Indian restaurants do!) That is not normal in the culture we came from...so it takes getting used to. I guess if its not a "grill" here people won't eat there LOL!

And regarding dairy cows any vegetarian (vegans do not eat any animal products) worth their salt knows how to do research to use dairy (and eggs) that are cruelty free. Your best bet in Omaha are Organic Valley products (Horizon claims to be cruelty free but they have been found lacking). Hyvee also has a pretty good line of dairy (organic store brand) in their Natural Foods section that claims to be cruelty free AND as an added bonus it is non homogenized, comes from grass-fed cows, and is low-temp pasturized so not as many vitamins are lost. Hyvee's is shipped only from Iowa so doesn't have as high a carbon burden as Organic Valley either.

So anyway too much information I know.

As far as eating whatever food God has blessed us with, you and I consider different things to be "food" is all. I just wish that God had been less liberal when he "blessed" us with factory farming.

why would you say, we have no respect for someone's choices? If a person wants to live without meat or meat products that is their business. If those of us choose to eat meat and meat products like eggs, milk, cheese that is our business; neither side is wrong. Now, if these same Vegans are from the PETA teachings, well, that is a total other story...
