Is It Okay To Eat Nothing But Crispy Saturated-Fat-Filled Turkey Skin Tomorrow?

"Tofurkey is offensive, linguistically and culturally. If you want to eat turkey, eat turkey. Tofu doesn't look or taste or smell like turkey at all. If you make tofu, own it and treat it like tofu and call it tofu."
Dr. James Hamblin, the Atlantic's health editor, answers all your Thanksgiving health questions about turkey skin, calories and taking a bowl of gravy and a pack of cigarettes to your childhood bedroom.

Eating veggie-meat is not like eating meat, it's like eating processed vegetable matter. Such an inconvenient truth for the militant vegetarians and vegans out there (not all of them, just… those ones) but it's time that they've accepted it and found a better marketing angle. Or just admitted that half of their reasoning is cult-like and not-at-all practical.

Ain't tha boss a me.
