Vegans can make money selling their poo.

Maybe it's for eating.
It would better for you than a diet of all the different kinds of low qual, chemically enhanced, processed meat that some people live on.

Siem Reap is a filthy messy run down city by day that has little to offer. It only looks nice at night when it's illuminated.
Then it's too busy and too noisy.
Food paradise? Lol.

I just spent 10 days eating myself through SR and had some amazing meals. There is a new Italian restaurant I ate in a few times. Nary a Pizza or Pasta in sight but some seriously outstanding food.

In recent times, there have been new start ups, where companies are making fake meat from plant products. It seems in years to come, it will become a big thing, where large amounts of fake meat will be sold.

In Australia, Hungry Jacks now sells vegan burgers, as part of their regular menu.

How fast this industry will grow, gets back to dollars. If the fake burgers are cheaper to produce, they will sell big time.

What a waste of time......
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-51005974
why?
we're on the cusp of a popular move towards 'vegetarian-ish' food, and this fits
flouting the 'rules' of strict, ethical, absolute, pedantic vegies or vogons could even be smart psychological marketing; you can improve your health and save the planet without the gay/radical/leftie/feminist/dreadlocks/etc
i agree small extra effort could have satisfied everyone though

Is Siem Reap becoming a vegan paradise ?
oxymoron

Google Soylent green and Soylent orange.
These are excellent protein rich sources that save the animal kingdom.
I suggest a new flavor Soylent yellow for Asia.

I live in Siem Reap and there are many beautiful areas. My place is surrounded by old mango trees and there are orchids blooming now.
I can be at Angkor Wat complex in less than 10 minutes.

Nothing wrong with being a vegan or vegetarian or trying it part of the week.
I just don't get the whole thing about making a fake hamburger or hotdog or chicken tender.
I lived in LA for almost 5 years 30 years ago.
I ate in some great vegan joints.

Does being a vegan make one incoherent?
