#Veganized theme 6th November 2014

This was a really popular theme! It was a very busy hour indeed.

I feel #Veganrecipehour isn’t about showing off. It isn’t about ‘Preaching’ to people or condemning their choices. By that I don’t just mean none Vegan choices. i mean within the Vegan community also.

If we don’t work together to show whats possible, then how can we possibly hope to attract others? I’ve said it before, I know there are wider issues other than food that make up the choice to become Vegan. (I’m vegan and I know very well!) But, I also know the question I’m always asked is ‘What do you eat!’  followed by ‘Don’t you miss X, Y and Z? Don’t you feel like you are missing out?’

For me, I miss the accessibility of X, Y and Z but I NEVER feel that I ‘Miss out’. Almost everything you would find in a none Vegan diet can be found to either buy ready #Veganized or there are so many amazing recipes out there! I believe in showing possibilities.

Another statement I read a lot is along the lines of ‘If vegans like meat substitutes so much, why don’t they just eat the meat?’ Yes, I see the point and part of me thinks hmmm ….should I be eating a ‘Soysage’ or ‘Cheatin chickn’? I say yes, (if you like it!) It’s about showing possibilities. These are all #Crueltyfree possibilities.

Anyway, Enough of me rambling on….

I’m going to keep the write up simple this time as its so extensive. Plus this room is soooo cold!

  1. I really enjoyed that evening- it was so good to learn new recipes. totally agree with you; while fake meat etc. won’t appeal to everyone. let’s not forget it’s a cruelty free, healthier and environmentally friendly choice. I like to think of myself as a bit of a foodie, but if I’m honest, I admit to really liking some of the substitutes, both bought and home made. Many, including me, would find it hard to stick to veganism without the odd chocolate/ icecream/ cake/ burger/ sausage/ bit of cheese. btw, that cheeze sauce recipe will be up in the next few hours- hubby wanted to check it first as he invented it 🙂

    1. I’m a firm believer in Choices. Just because one person doesn’t like it, doesn’t mean someone else shouldn’t. VRH exists to show possibilities. Not to say what you should put in your mouth. I love a ‘sausage’ and I’m a big fry’s family fan. I, like you am also passionate about home cooking and Veggies!
      I have a lovely varied diet that is #crueltyfree and that’s the main thing :O)
