i know, who blogs on sunday morning at 7 right? i guess just people who wake up at 6 EVERY morning.
ok, so MANY a time when seth and i have said we are vegetarians people have said that they'd LOVE to be, but its just too expensive... which i'm pretty sure is a cop-out, but if its not... we could never understood how people think its MORE expensive to be a vegetarian. then after a while we realized that maybe people thought if you dont eat meat you have to/should be eating those fake meat things? cause yea, that would get pretty expensive (never mind the fact that if you really wanted to be a vegetarian you would find a way because it would probably mean you had such a big issue with meat you would NOT eat it) aaaaanywho.... beans and rice are usually the main ingredient in any vegetarians diet (that doesn't think its good to sub with soy...) anyway um... last time i checked beans and rice were like THE least expensive thing to buy at the store. especially dry beans. brown rice is a BIT more expensive, but its still like 2 dollars and lasts for like 20 meals.... um. hello!?!? (not to mention the whole complete protein you get from that, that you DONT get from meat) i think that's cheaper than the 'cheaper chicken' dont you? so yea i was thinking about all this because FINALLY someone agrees with us... msn posted this article about eating for under $100 a week and one of the very first suggestions was LESS MEAT, MORE BEANS!! wooo hoooo. i feel so vindicated. even if it is just msn.... and even if half the stuff on their list i wouldn't buy... at least they're getting the point across that us eating no meat and eating beans instead is not more excessive or expensive than meat. ha. gotcha! plus i would like to say that if meat became cheaper than beans and rice.... wouldn't that be the scariest meat to eat?
