Posted on 07/18/2022 8:04:40 PM PDT by stars & stripes forever
he National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023 authorizes taxpayer funds for the U.S. Department of Defense to research and develop plant-based proteins for members of the military.
The congressional legislation, H.R. 7900, establishes a “Pilot Program on Research and Development of Plant-based Protein for the Navy.”
The bill stipulates that by March 1st, 2023, the Secretary of the Navy “shall establish and carry out a pilot program to offer plant-based protein options at forward operating bases for consumption by members of the Navy.” Plant-based protein options are defined as “edible vegan or vegetarian meat alternative products made using plant and other non-livestock-based proteins,” according to the bill.
At least two naval facilities will be made to participate in the pilot program and “prioritize facilities where livestock-based protein options may be costly to obtain or store.”

Plant proteins? What the hell is wrong with those people? Just skip straight to bugs!
When sailors go to the mess deck for midrats, they want real double sliders with cheese & fries, not some fake meat-like product made of vegetables or bugs. There never has been a mutiny on a U.S. Navy ship. This just might do it.
Just another recruitment hinderance.
remember when they were all excited about “pink slime”? meet the new slime, natural will not be on the label.
The Navy is know for decent grub, but I’m not sure how well that stuff will be very good mass produced.
Though I have to admit I tried a stew made with plant “sausage” that was very good. Burgers? Blech.
Weakening the military in every way they can think of.
What this means is that our troops will be looking pasty and
not feeling up to par most of the time.
I’m not against a vegetarian diet, but with the higher level
of activity these men/women are under, they need the meat
supplement > IMO.
Yes I am aware of the book of Daniel.
Folks, this is a direct attack on our way of life. I wouldn’t
laugh this off. This is simply a guide to where we are
headed if the Left gets their way.
I could eat vegetarian - I do most of the time.
But I could never survive on ‘vegan’.
Shit-on-shingle will never be the same.
Soldiers need animal protein to build strong muscles.
Popeye loved spinach.
I feel the same way about it.
............no better way to damage morale in a US military unit than F with the food! None!
The marxist bastards around Biden in the White House are doing the CCP’s bidding................in my opinion.
I spent 7 years in the Navy Reserve and 2 of those were active overseas. The food was VERY good by any measure and tastefully served 3 times a day. Almost made me want to reup! Almost.
“Popeye loved spinach”
Popeye was a Coastie
Don’t forget! They fed food laced with metal filings during the National Guard stay in Washington D.C. garages.

Seriously though, they should be eating shark steaks.
