quote [ a dark, concentrated sauce made from hydrolyzed vegetable protein. The result made soups, consommes and other foods taste meaty without animal protein. ]

Mix me a brew, an elixir to soothe

Vegetables Don't Exist

quote [ Botanically speaking, it?s still clear: eggplants, tomatoes, bell peppers, and squash are all fruits. It?s equally clear that mushrooms and truffles are fungi, more closely related to humans than they are to plants. But these are all, also, in common usage, ?vegetables.? ]

The bits on linguistics in this article are quite interesting. (Or rather, they are fascinating if I don't want to sound like a snob...)

What I Learned by Eating Only Meat for a Month

quote [ This fall I joined the ranks of Shawn Baker's all-meat cult for 30 days. Here's what happened. ]

TL;DR: Diarrhea.

I continued my own experimenting with diet again last fall by trying a combination of keto and intermittant fasting for a couple months. I didn't notice any difference in mood, health, or energy, but I sure did have to urinate a lot (like 10 times a day at the worst of it). I reintroduced carbs into my meals and the problem resolved quickly.
