So I got a new bamboo cutting board. I thought I knew how to use them, but this one has additional information that I’m having a hard time deciphering:

“People need bamboo for inhabitancy under the circumstance eating without meat.”

Any guesses?

    “Best used for vegetarian cooking, not meat, which might absorb meat-juice scariness”?

    I was thinking it might be like that. But I haven’t seen anything while googling that suggests bamboo is anti-meat juice.

    Maybe it’s a nod to sustainability, like: bamboo is an eco-friendly wood to use for cutting boards because it’s easier regrown? So you don’t have to cut down your forests to make room for meat-animals…because you’ve got all that bamboo…

    I just lost my own train of thought.

    Maybe try putting it into an online translator (pick language where it was manufactured) & then back into English. Could be magical thinking.

    Cheesefairy, you might be right and it’s a nod to sustainability.

    I threw it through Babelfish and am none the wiser.

    “Should you be hungry, or cold, or out in the rain, you can use bamboo to build a roof or you can eat it….it’s more than just a cutting board!”?


    Maybe some sort of magical bamboo proteins will leach into your veggies from this board, and it will improve the healthfulness of your vegetarian choices, like cooking with cast iron.

    “People need bamboo for living as a vegetarian.” Why? Who knows, but it makes no less sense than “Wouldn’t you like to be a Pepper too?” or “It’s the real thing.”

    That’s the way our IT guy talks. Maybe he wrote it.

    Beth, maybe bamboo is the new going-camping answer to everything. It also makes no sense.
    Sarah, how does cooking with cast iron improve my health? I get a lot of iron? I just thought I got a lot of pancakes!

    Stephanie, please get your IT guy to call me. I want to hear him talk.

    Cooking in a cast iron pan does actually increase the iron in your diet.

    My IT isn’t so awesome on the phone. It’s quite painful, actually.

    Okay, more iron for me, then, Sarah. And Stephanie, don’t get him to call if it’s actually painful. Pain is bad.
