In an attempt to not seem overly anti-vegan (some of the most important people in my life are vegan) and in acknowledgement of how veganism improved my life for the better I present another series of posts I will write.
Vegans think a lot about food. They have to do so. All those sneaky animal parts that arrive in food must be excised from the body.
Then to replace the animal pieces they have to learn, at minimum, the basics of nutrition.
Often they begin learning about different foods from around the world. The vegan plate is rarely the meat and potatoes sans meat that most omnivores seem to envision.
Before I first went vegan I didn’t know how to cook. I didn’t know what I was putting in my body. Now I do.
Now I think about food constantly. Where does it come from? Whatzits flavor profile? Can I use it to make a vegan eggs benedict? What cultural importance does it have? And on and on.
good great for that.
I may fault veganism for being obsessed with consumption, but thinking about consumption is still important. Everyone should be critical of what they put past their lips.
