    That works. Then they can put "Assembly Line Worker" on a resume...could probably unionize.

    Magnolia stated it was raw vegan. Raw to me says not cooked. So in other cases no, but in this case yes.

    Ahh, thank you! Reading this thread on my phone, easy to miss the fine points such as that one!

    Feel so sorry for raw vegans. Who would choose that?

    I had a friend that went raw vegan for a time. We were both bringing salads to work. Mine was in essentially a giant mixing bowl with a lid. Hers was in a little tupperware container that not even my chicken would have fit in. Mine had greens, 'cado, bacon, chicken, tomato, carrot, cuke, and half the fridge in it. Hers had lettuce, tomato, carrot, and some sort of raw nut "for the protein."
    Guess whose salad the guys were drooling over.

    Huh, I didn't realize the "raw" in "raw vegan" meant uncooked--I thought it was more along the lines of ... "unaltered", as in, no pesticides used to grow the food or something like that.

    How does that not get incredibly boring, incredibly fast?

    Edit - I looked it up on Wikipedia, and it does indeed mean uncooked (or at least partly).

    They believe that raw fruit, vegetables, nuts, grains, and beans contain enzymes which are intended to help us digest the plant, and that heating anything destroys these enzymes. So they use special equipment, like low temp dehydrators to make "crackers" from raw grains and seeds without cooking the ingredients in the process. The special equipment and time it takes means that most people can't consider preparing food this way. Therefore home cooking is not an option for those who want fancy raw vegan food.

    One of my friends is not raw vegan, but hangs out with people in that kind of scene. I dont see them often but I visited for a few days recently and every morning as well as a fried egg (they was horrified of my request for scambled because "you have to have raw yolk!") they made a giant juce drink in a seriously heavy duty industrial juicer. Basically an entire weeks supply of vegetables went in one end, and a pint glass of sludge came out the other which they downed in one. I had a small glass to try it - perhaps 1/4 pint or less - and I felt like I had had serious greens overload. It included apples, stinging nettles, spinach, rocket, blueberries, carrots, kale, and any amount of other stuff, all raw. I was not sure raw kale and stinging nettles were that great an idea.

    They also once took me to a restaurant that had an extensive raw vegan selection. I tried the soup which was tasty but utterly unfilling, and crackers made from seeds pressed and dried which were weird. And a juice on the side. Luckily for me it was inbetween mealtimes!

    Ironically, raw vegan desserts are delicious and almost paleo. Also very expensive. The cashiers at the local health food store probably think I'm vegan. XD I buy my meat directly from a farm.

    I've had people ask if I was vegetarian so many times in so many hilarious ways. For example:

    The cashier right before she picks up the giant bags of shrimp and fish.

    A guy in my new section at work while I was eating beef stew. Didn't understand that one; I just looked at him funny and showed him my bowl.

    My new squad leader which lucky for him, wasn't around food at the time. We did have a long conversation on nutrition afterwards. Though, now he wants me to lecture the squad, which I don't feel comfortable doing because I certainly don't like people lecturing me on what I eat, and theirs tends to be less controversial, if wrong.
