Last night Gordon Ramsay taught viewers how to prepare a three course meal on "Gordon Ramsay: Cookalong Live." The Michelin-starred chef, known for his dislike of plant-based diets, used the segment with ex-vegan and "How I Met Your Mother" star Alyson Hannigan to jab at vegetarians and vegans. After Hannigan explained that she craved meat when becoming pregnant, Ramsay responded, "I am amazed that you actually managed to get sorta pregnant with the energy eating seeds and nuts and fruit." He also implied that Hannigan may be tempted to eat the seasoned chopping board.

Hannigan, who appeared to have no problem with Ramsay's digs toward the lifestyle she once practiced, revealed that she now considers herself to be a cute-atarian. "I don't eat cute things. I won't eat like bunnies or ducks." Hannigan's comments suggested that the "ugly meat" steak she had sizzling in the pan did not come from a "cute" animal. Read the whole story here.
