If it was actually in Chicago I'd totally pop by, but after the stuff I have going on the weekend I don't think i'd be able to make the drive to Bridgeview and spend any decent amount of time there :(

Joong Boo Market has like eleventy sixteen kinds of kimchi - there are several stores in the city.  A very adventurous place to shop.  

I was at Joong Boo, couldn't find one without fish, maybe I was in the wrong section... (I did get a ginormous piece of Jackfruit for $2.50!). It's all good though, my friend runs the Korean-Polish fusion place Kimski in Bridgeport and brought me over a huge container of their vegan kimchi yesterday.  So good!

I don't eat vegetables because I love animals, I eat vegetables because I HATE PLANTS. DEATH TO THE ALL THE PLANTS!  :twisted:






But seriously though, no one forced you to open this thread, and no one in the thread is pushing their dietary choices on you.


Everyone has their own reasons, it doesn't have to be either of the reasons you suggested. Someone could just want to help conserve water, reduce carbon emissions, be broke and can't afford meat, health related reasons, or just not want to support corporate owned concentrated animal feeding operations.




I do it out of vanity. I love to eat, and when I eat vegetables I can eat a metric shitton more and only be eating half the calories. That way I can eat all the time and still look  :hot: naked.  :party:

I have never had bibimbap before, but I saw some pics and looked at various recipes and decided to try making it. I made some spicy BBQ Jackfruit, blanched spinach tossed with garlic, sesame mushrooms, edamame, shredded carrots, and some cilantro, black sesame, and green onions on top.  All of it over rice. I looked all over the Asain grocery store for veg kimchi but they didn't have any. :( I am going to a Korean restaurant to get some this weekend.

Nice score.  I have the first model you picked up and I've had it for almost 10 years, still going strong. I think I got it for free with Best Buy rewards points.  It doesn't handle softer fruits like banana and mango very well IMO and sometimes microgreens shoot right through it but other than that it's been great.  I've even added hot peppers to juices....    One of my favorite juices to make is ACE 2 oranges, 1 lemon, and 4-5 carrots.
