Monks should only consume Soylent

Or some similar product which is a tasteless and vegan meal replacement drink that supplies all the nutrients a person needs. If they need tasteful cooked or processed food with animal products, then they have no business being monks.
If you meet the Buddha (blessed be the arahant) on the road, kill him.

Cool, do you eat that, Herb? It looks nutritious and healthy. Are you a vegan, Herb? I heard it's a good way to lose weight.

So from my posting, you assume I'm fat?

No, I've just heard that drinking liquid type shakes as meals is good for losing weight. Sometimes I'm a few pounds over weight, but nothing too much over, so was thinking of trying it after some days of over-eating.

I mainly get the impression that you like otters.

Banned in Canada - think again about the glories of Soy foods.
May all seek, find and follow the Path of selflessness.

It was banned because Canada felt it didn't meet the full nutritional needs of a full meal replacement, not because of being soy.
As of October 24, 2017, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) banned Soylent drinks from Canada on the premise that the "meal replacement" label on Soylent do not meet the nutritional needs of a meal replacement due to the fat content.[64] Shipments of Soylent have been blocked by the CFIA until Rosa Foods makes changes to its products.

Just lazy - I should have written two sentences. Anyway, take a gander at the dangers of Soy:

That site is heavily biased, maybe even funded by the beef industry. They openly admit that they love butter and love meat.

One could find a ton of websites saying how bad soy is and one could also find a ton of websites, including reputable ones like WebMD which say soy is good for you. Best to follow the money and see who is funding them, in most cases it is the beef industry trying to debunk soy.

I know this is anecdotal, but I know some people who eat tofu, tempeh and soy products daily and they are the picture of health, very old and doing very well. If some of those debunking sites were true, they should be dead now.
