That’s right, it’s back again for another crazy year. It’s World Vegan Day.
I know many of you, my readers, are not vegans, which is just fine. Neither am I. However, there is nothing wrong with trying vegan recipes every now and then (like my soyrizo taquitos for instance…)
I was vegan once for about three days, but I was just not ready for it. The diet felt restrictive, but that was before I started to learn how much is out there fore the vegan to eat. Make no mistakes about it: there is no such thing as a bad vegan cook because eating out vegan is so hard, they must prepare their own meals.
I will admit, some of it takes some getting used to. Some of the meat replacements appear to only fool those who have not eaten meat in a long while (I’m looking at you tofu dogs), but vegan cuisine made from good local ingredients and well prepared tofu is every bit as gourmet as a $500/plate meal.
So, if you’re stuck in a rut or looking to challenge yourself, try vegan for a meal. Your tastebuds and your body will thank you.
