"Where do you get your protein?" is a question that should be banned from any conversation with a vegan. Only the most malnourished individuals ever suffer from a protein deficiency—if you're eating a well-rounded diet full of veggies, fruits, and grains, you'll never have to worry about it. No protein shakes necessary.
I read an article recently that asked why killing animals is moral when killing people is evil. It asked why the Holocaust was a blight on our history of human beings when we will march animals into a slaughterhouse and consume their flesh. The writer holds vegan views, and to a degree, vegan views are valid. While 70 percent of pollution is created by just 100 companies, all these companies are fossil fuel creators. Of course if you switch to green energy, that would be better. The second biggest cause of pollution is animals. Their farming, their farting, de-forestation, etc. A vegan diet will help slow this. However, there can be nothing morally gained from choosing not to eat animals. Whilst depending on your original diet, it may have health benefits, there is nothing inherently moral about it.
With the recent news that Waitrose food editor, William Sitwell, joked about "capturing" vegans, "killing" them and force feeding them meat, and the following Good Morning Britain debate (with one of the debatees calling those who don't eat meat "irritating"), there had been a heated argument in the media about why people seem to hate vegans just so much. As a vegan myself of two years, I know first hand how people tend to treat vegans in everyday life. And I have to say, people really don't like vegans! I wanted to break down why people don't seem to like us very much in everyday life.
After two years, I have decided to no longer call myself vegan.
Veganism has always had one of those stigmas of flavourless, boring foods as well as loftier than thou people to match, but I would like to show, through a selection of delicious and sumptuous recipes, that isn't the case. Vegan food doesn't need to be boring and tasteless; in fact, quite the opposite.
This quick snack takes takes about 30 minutes, and all you meed is an oven or toaster oven, a few washed potatoes, whatever herbs and spices are your favorite, and a lot, or a little bit, of oil.

"I could never go vegan!" - Me, a few years ago—when I loved chicken nuggets, milkshakes, and cheese.
As the seasons change, the cooler weather invites comfy sweats and socks, topic-filled conversations and tasty food dishes for the family to share in love. Whether you're a lover of hosting weekly [food] parties or someone who likes to create tastefully passionate dishes for one, every season brings new creativity to the table.
With the large influx of health-conscious individuals across the globe companies have begun creating eco-friendly alternatives of their best-selling products. This can be seen in grocery stores, restaurants, department stores, and even in the automotive industry. Today though we are going to focus on food and more specifically one of my favorite brands, Slow Foods Kitchen. This company was founded in the small town of Palmetto, Florida and run by mother-daughter duo Felicia and Amanda. These two have worked hard to create delicious and nutritious snacks for people who give a ---- about what they are putting into their bodies.
When it came to making pastelillos as a kid, I was always on dough duty. Covered in flour and gaining muscle mass by the minute, I rolled out what must be thousands of discos over the course of my lifetime. I loved every minute of it though. The process of making pastelillos was a fun bonding time in the kitchen for whoever was involved. I love when food brings people together and this vegan version allows me to continue doing so.
