I agree with you on school lunches. However Los Angeles is the ONLY place I know of in the US with a vegan elementary school and a vegan secondary school.
although it's highly processed garbage and probably poisoning my body
I appreciate that theaters haven't used animal sourced butter for popcorn in many a year
As far as I know, the only totally vegan school in So Cal is a small private school named MUSE. but I think that is old news.
However many schools in LAUSD have gone to Meatless Mondays. The school district supports it but it remains an individual schools decision. I would like to see a vegan option on the menu every day of the week. But I imagine the smart vegans don't care. The vegan moms just make their vegan kids a good lunch. The HS girls with the green hair probably pack hummus and chips and eat them under the bleachers while smoking Spirits and drinking diet Pepsi.
I go to the movies about once a month. Last time I went to the movies I had a soy latte. I was doubly impressed. Not only did they have almond, coconut and soy milk - but they didn't charge extra like Starbucks does. They are building a new theater about a ten minute walk from my house. It will be a super fancy theatre so I'm not sure if it will be my first choice.
Actually I'm not sure you're going to get poisoned by eating popcorn or a vegan hot dog once a month or even once a week. Seems exaggerated.
Also some of the LA theaters are full service dinner theaters. I saw Gatsby in one of them. The vegan options are still more limited there. It seems fair for them to add vegan meal options. Maybe two. Vegans are mostly left ordering appetizers or fries there. There should be like a veggie burger and maybe an Asian style pasta dish.
You mean "the cool HS kids...". I've had every imaginable color of hair. All while in my 40s, and haven't had a Pepsi since i was 21.The HS girls with the green hair probably pack hummus and chips
Thanks for commenting on that line. I put that line in there to be funny and to get a response from someone. I was getting worried that no one noticed it at all.You mean "the cool HS kids...". I've had every imaginable color of hair. All while in my 40s, and haven't had a Pepsi since i was 21.
One if the only exceptions to my no oil diet is coconut oil on popcorn. Why people haven't woken up to that yet is crazy!
That's so awesome! I just wish they would stop perpetuating the idea that tofu is the only other place to get protein, and the overall obsession with protein in general. I seriously never concern myself with how much protein I'm getting. EVER.So, moving back on topic.
It's not just movie theatres!
"Los Angeles residents may soon be eating more tofu with their entertainment. A proposed city law would require movie theaters, sports stadiums, the Los Angeles Zoo, Los Angeles International Airport restaurants and other large-scale entertainment venues to sell at least one vegan protein option."
