    so much for this

    The emphasis here is on choice. While we shall be focusing, for a while, on this so we can bring to you content that will help keep you aware of what's happening and why, and we shall bring out mealplans and suggestions to help you try out new dietary choices in the easiest way possible, it is, again, no way a prescriptive approach. I am stressing this because our choice of food as individuals is not just a component of our fitness, it is also part of our social life.
    found this trying to understand the lack of meat recipes, Damer why does a choice require the deletion of other choices?

    I would like to answer this instead of Damer, if that's ok, since I am in charge of the DAREBEE kitchen. Just so there is a bit more context to when and why this happened.

    We have only recently decided not to bring back any of the meat recipes to DAREBEE so we couldn't really definitively say this before. Originally, when the section was updated to fit the new format, we planned to update older recipes as well. It took a while since myself and the team members working on this don't feel comfortable working with meat anymore. We figured that we will simply delay the update until we have someone who is. Something that proved nearly impossible during the lockdowns.

    As time passed, the entire core team transitioned to the plant-based lifestyle (first because of the compelling scientific evidence and then because of our personal experience but this is not relevant to the topic here). Now it will simply be unethical to publish recipes we ourselves don't use. We are not trying to convert anyone else or make any points here - we are completely OK with other people eating meat, obviously, we just don't want to offer these recipes here anymore published under our name. You can find meat-based recipes everywhere else on the web so we didn't think this would be a problem. You can add meat to our recipes or replace ingredients using animal products whenever you want and it's perfectly OK with us. As we are not pushing anyone to give up meat we also would like for other people not to push us do something we are not comfortable with. Sometimes we do things for personal reasons and we are limited by our own ethics rather than anything else. That's all there is to it really.

    ...I guess, It's not exactly a bad thing since that's why this project was born in the first place

    I hope this makes sense and helps to clear this up.

      Your quote is before the nutritional support ended... and thereforea bit out of context...

      In 2020 the decision to focus on more pland based recipes was made:

      Later, in 2021, the nutritional support of old mealplans and I quess also recipes ended:

          It seems many folks are at least going predominately plant base nowadays, how does this fit in your eating habits ? Doing a 30 day vegan challenge is good to get in the groove of eating more of a plant base diet. I did it and went on for 6 months, nowadays I'm maybe middle of the path and continue to eat vegan style a lot of the time. I've been involved with going to Yoga studios for many years and most students are vegetarian so often have been to pot luck parties that are plant base, also meditation groups and walking groups having mainly plant base pot lucks.

          I'm 69 and grew up in Manchester/Salford the North of England and meat was a luxury so never had much meat. Actually the Vegetarian Society started in the area which I thought was coz of meat being a luxury for working class, that's why the British love their Heinz baked beans.

          Everything's groovy!

            I like having protein-rich, plant-based recipes and information. I still eat meat but it's good to diversify.

              So it is still a possibility that Darebee will bring back recipes with meat in them if a meat eater joins the team?

                FittingPotato sure. We are constantly evolving so it is even possible that someone on the core team will stop being plant-based and will decide to add new meat recipes to the site. We will discuss it again then and make a decision. Note: when I say core team, I mean members onsite, though. We have team members who are not plant-based but they are simply not in the production and development departments of DAREBEE. I really don't know what DAREBEE will look like 2 years or 5 years from now. For the most part, I am just hoping we are still around then It's been really tough this past year. The only thing I guarantee will never change is how this resource is run. It will never have ads and it will always be available for free, for everyone. What kind of information we offer here will largely depend on research we see coming out, the way the world develops and what we feel you need (providing it doesn't compromise our own ethics and principals).

                I hope this makes sense and helps!

                  I made the switch to a plant based diet after reading this:

                  https://www.amazon.de/Making-Killing.../dp/1904859674

                  Just can not ignore our interconnectedness with all life and the suffering we cause 'ourselves'and others because of the meat/milk/egg/fish industry. If we really love our children then we ought to act responsibly and leave them with a planet they can still enjoy instead of catering to our tongues.
