Has anyone on Crunchyroll ever gone vegetarian for the shits and giggles?

I don't mean because you dislike meat or anything. Two to three times a year I just tend to go vegetarian for a month or two. I believe it is because I just get bored of meat, and then bored of vegetarian foods.

Also, on a side topic, what are some of your favorite vegetarian dishes? I have been eating minestrone soup, nakeyabi udon, curry with tofu, miso ramen, black bean soup/tacos, and sharpe spaghetti among others. I would love ideas as well!

TL:DR - Have you ever gone vegetarian for shits and giggles and what are some of your favorite vegetarian dishes?

Well, I don't do it for fun. I'm vegetarian because I am a third generation vegetarian, born and raised in a vegetarian household. I've tasted real meat of various types in various dishes and I just don't care for it.

I have a lot of favorite dishes. The only one I remember off the top of my head is for a side salad:

Korean Coleslaw

½ head cabbage, shredded
3 scallions, sliced
3 Tbsp. toasted sesame seeds
1/2 C. toasted slivered almonds
1 package seasoned ramen (Nissin brand Chicken flavor)

Dressing:
2 Tbsp. Sesame oil
¼ C. Oil
3 Tbsp. Vinegar
3 Tbsp. Sugar
1 tsp. Black pepper

Toss the cabbage, scallion, sesame seeds and almonds together in a large bowl. Mix dressing. When ready to serve, shake up the dressing so it's mixed (it will separate like Italian otherwise) and add it as you toss the salad - last break up the ramen and add them. That way they stay crisp in texture. They get soggy from the dressing if you let it sit too long (still good but the crunchy texture makes this great). Don't forget to sprinkle the packet of flavoring into the salad while tossing it.

I haven't gone vegetarian for the shits and giggles, but I sometimes don't eat meat for long periods of time, typically because I just feel like eating certain things over others.

I do notice though that my skin is all glowy and I'm not as tired if I skip out on the meat. I've also heard that by not eating meat, you won't have body odor. But I still eat meat and seafood.

Not necessarily for shits and giggles but I've gone vegetarian for 3 months before and even vegan for a similar time frame because I was curious and thought it could be healthy at the time.

Avocado chocolate pudding/ smoothie

1 whole avocado ( has to be soft and ripe but not over ripe)
2Tbsp Cocao powder
I used coconut milk as the base but use enough to cover the avocado for pudding or more for a smoothie
2Tbsp honey

Put all the ingredients in a blender till smooth. You could even chill it in the fridge if you want.

I have gone vegetarian for about 3/4 months for a bet like couple years ago. My uncle is vegan and my sis & mother are vegetarian. So my diet includes a lot of vegetarian foods. Although I do eat seafood and meat here and there, my diet mostly consists of vegan/vegetarian foods. I make vegan tofu eggs, vegan Kimchi jjigae, tofu stir fry, vegan cake, vegan cupcakes, veggie wraps, and a whole lot of other things.

Vegan tofu eggs:
One container of tofu
Turmeric
Salt & pepper
2 or 3 bell peppers
2 tomatoes
2 cups of spinach

Put tofu in pot and break apart with a spoon to get scrambled egg like consistency. Add tumeric until tofu is yellow like eggs. (The amount of tumeric doesn't matter). Cook until tofu is a bit sautéed. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Put away in a plate.
Cut all veggies except spinach into bite size. Add bell peppers and tomatoes into pan. Cook with olive oil until all veggies are cooked. Add salt and pepper. Add the spinach last and let spinach wilt. You can add the tofu into the veggies. Mix and make sure you taste for salt. Cook until it reaches a boil. This dish is best eaten with toast!

I eat vegetarian most of the time but I have eaten meat for shit and giggles sometimes when I've felt like crap. So it's the opposite version. :3

I don't really eat meat, but I wouldn't call myself a 'vegetarian' per se. I do know a few people who are vegetarian for moral reasons, but tbh those horrible conditions you see in documentaries and such don't really apply to kosher meat companies anyway, so it wouldn't really be a factor for me anyway. It's mostly just that I find most meats unappetizing, so I don't eat em. But you wouldn't say a 5 year old was on a paleo diet because he refused to eat his veggies, so I guess I don't really count as a vegetarian.

I don't like enough foods/plants/veggies to go vegetarian, and the few foods I do like on the vegetarian side, I would be eating them daily. That's not healthy and that's not what I want, I'd stick to my small selection of food with a little meat mixed in.

Sorry My body needs too much energy.

and I would go broke trying to feed my body, unless I became a farmer and grew my own food, but then I would need a lot of land to do that. Either way you slice it... Fuck that I like to weigh over 200 Lbs, and pick up heavy things, and do physical activities that involve making gravity my bitch. No amount of veggie can sustain that hunger for power.

and don't you dare say that eating only veggies will give you more energy than meat.

not by choice. meat is expensive and it also goes bad quickly, even after it has been cooked;

i eat just about any vegetable. i don't really have a favorite "dish"; i typically prefer them by themselves, either raw or cooked/steamed/fried.

Actually mate it does and this is coming from a soldier. I tried a purely vegan diet for 7 months and actually gained 15 pounds , all of it muscle. And if a soldier can do it so can a civilian like since you don't work half as hard in a physical sense as any soldier.

That being said I found it boring diet lacking variety since I was forced to eat a lot of tofu and legumes to make up for the lack of animal protein. Didn't miss cow milk since I was born with a severe lactose intolerance so I have always drank Soy and almond milk.
