Veganism—the other other white meat substitute.
It’s a little easier when you live in a community with three Whole Foods Markets that have giant salad bars, places like the Go Raw Café where the entire menu is vegan, and have a wife from Nepal, a country where the staple of the diet is dalbaat, rice with spiced lentil gravy.
But it’s a lot harder than being just vegetarian. A true vegan goes far beyond not eating meat. Vegans do not eat butter, cheese or products from any animal, or eat things produced in a facility processing them. They don’t wear or use leather, or animal by-products. There are other restrictions as well that I simply don’t have space to cover.
When I scoffed at the almost religious aspects of this discipline, I got angry responses from practitioners about chickens suffering during the laying of eggs, and so forth. I am definitely against factory farming, supportive of farmers markets, and painfully aware that a vegan diet lowers blood pressure and cholesterol.
Nor am I proud of my Sasquatch-size carbon footprint.
