yes, I can see that, the life of a polar bear is more important than the life of a cow. They are on the brink of extinction due to diminishing habitat which is human induced.

What does this phrase " some animals have morally relevant abilities that other animals lack" mean?
I want to make sure I understand you.

I will say that I don't agree with the 'All lives are precious' slogan. A bacterium's life isn't precious. The problem with eating meat is that animals are subjected to a life of torture and moreover meat eating is an ecological disaster. We should give equal moral weight to the interests of all animals regardless of species, but some animals have morally relevant abilities that other animals lack and we must take this into account when we make moral decisions.

I think it is great someone wrote a book about this. Here is the link to check it out. The book is "Why We Don't Eat Animals".

have you tried raw cauliflower with some olive oil, garlic and nutritional yeast? I chop the cauli into bote sized bits, then toss it all into a large zip baggie and moosh ans squish and move it all around so every piece of cauli is coated.

It is delish! You can bake it in a stove (or dehydrate it) to get crispy, but I can't keep my hands off it long enough to do that.

In some Arabian restaurants I've eaten julienned carrots marinated in lemon juice and a little salt. They're a surprising great party treat too.

Cheryl,
Coincidentally, I recently started squeezing lemon onto shredded carrots, radishes, or daikon, for a snack. This is my current substitute for stress-food, which I hope is healthier. The lemon juice gives them a little 'bite' without adding bad stuff like salt or sugar.

I started drinking warm lemon water in the morning. I sweeten it with stevia. Here is a link to some of the benefits below.
