A Return to Vegan Country

When you live with vegans, you tend to eat what they eat. It’s just easier that way. Since my current housemates live on a higher plain of existence, I’ve adjusted my diet to make our dining experience more enjoyable. Here are some of the meals I’ve found myself indulging in over the course of the last two weeks:

Whole wheat pasta, red sauce with soy crumbles, greens.

Greens, veggies, mushrooms, sunflower seeds, olives.

Adopting a vegan (plant based) diet not only has countless health benefits, it also greatly reduces an individuals carbon-footprint and saves hundreds of animals a year from being raised and slaughtered in factory farms. There are essentially 0 reasons not to be vegan except that we’re all addicted to our current lifestyles and the “food” that we put into our bodies. I’ll be the first to admit that I would miss cheese and eggs an awful lot if I were to pursue a vegan diet full-time. I’m part of the problem.

Don’t let vegan-ism offend you. Just strive to learn more about it if you haven’t already given it some thought.

In my opinion, with their squeaky clean insides, vegans dwell on a higher plain of existence than the rest of us. They are some of my greatest role models. And some of my greatest loves. šŸ˜‰

    Sorry, not for me. But then I’m closing in on 69 and am not about to change my ways.
