I love Upton's Naturals' (always wondered if they chose that as an allusion to the meat packing industry) range but there are others. Using West Soy's strips in a stir fry tonight. Not happy about the fact it features a small amount of soy; the cool thing about seitan is that it doesn't have soy in it usually and that's a good thing. Unless you have gluten intolerance of course, in that case seitan is pretty much Satan.

I'll have to check this out. I can't eat tofu because of the soy in it but if this doesn't have soy it's worth a look. I'm perfectly cool with wheat.

A search with the image doesn't provide others from the shoot, but here's a littlun not liking his check-up:

See I don't really like meat anyway so images like this just push me closer to not eating it for other reasons than merely personal taste. :)

Yeah stables were pretty cushtie places to kip down.

The bit from the bible that tends to bother me is the Sheep and the Goats passage, the story tells me that whatever sort of shepherd Jesus was from a moral sense he wasn't a good one from a practical sense, otherwise the two related animals would represent the opposite of what they do in the parable;  you separated goats from the sheep to make sure the precious and valuable animals were taken into the warmth and safety of your camp, the bog standard ones were left in the darkness. The worthwhile beasties were the goats however, still are.

I mean, I love both sheep and goats, but goats are delicate little princesses who need to be cosseted, sheep are titans. :D

EDIT: And yes, given money being no option, a life as a sheep farmer/goatherd wouldn't be far from the top of my list of occupations. :)

Very cute. :)  It reminds me of a conversation I had not that long ago about the whole "Jesus born in a manger" thing, where the guy I was talking to is a part-time pastor and was infuriated that everyone plays up the "oh, poor Jesus, born in a shitty place" angle, when the manger was actually probably a pretty nice, warm place, and people slept with or near their animals all the time.  Context is key.

I love cows, but I also love ground beef. For them, I think I'll eventually settle on eating only grass-fed stuff that's had a pretty decent life instead of living in a factory.  When we have room for a chest-freezer we'll do that.

I like everything about your post. :)

I think a lot of religious folks try to play up the "poor Jesus" angle when really, the birth in the stable was simply meant to convey Jesus' humble beginnings. I'm sure lots of people have been introduced to earth in far worse circumstances (wasn't some kid just born in a tree recently?) and I doubt that Jesus would want anyone to pity him.

And I agree about the grass-fed beef. I can't buy beef in the grocery store any more because of factory farming. I have yet to figure out how to deal with this conundrum when I'm at Five Guys, though. And I haven't made the non-factory farming leap yet to poultry or pigs -- one animal at a time (although I have cut down on our pork consumption and now we mostly eat chicken and beef or eggs).
