I do that all the time. I'm a frikkin amazing cook
so every time at a potluck or when I have people over I hear "ah now if I could eat like this every day I could be vegetarian!" Well, why not learn how to cook like this then? I swear people think we're eating boiled cabbage and tofu.
On an idiotic note, I work with a morbidly obese guy. His sister is incredibly fat, and gets these lesions, like bed sores, and since her hygiene isn't great she will routinely get infections. Last Friday he went to check on her, and she was feverish and unresponsive. It turns out somehow an infection worked it's way into her copious fat layer and just started going to town, and since there is very little blood supply to deliver white blood cells in the fat she is undergoing surgery while they cut massive parts of her out. Isn't that lovely? And while I know this has nothing to do with eating meat per se I know that I sure as hell ain't going out like that.
