And as a vegetarian for 30 years, I'll let you know that non-vegetarians care a LOT about what we eat. The number of lessons I've had about the vegetarian diet from non-vegetarians who know very little is staggering. The number of people that told me that my kids would not get enough protein and would be weak as adults is funny given my son was a college wrestler.

YEAH! I can't wait to try it. MLAA Nov 30 #1
