It has been a while since I have published anything on my Blog. Life changed a lot in the last two years and I simply got so busy that time to do fun things was next to non existent!
First of all a very Happy New Year and Happy Veganuary! I hope you had a good time, despite the ongoing challenges we are facing.
In the last year lots of new Vegan products have come out, recipes can be found in almost any magazine now and wherever you go, there are milk alternatives in most Cafés and Vegan options on the menu. People are aware that we are not an “extremist” group of Weirdos 🙂 but have legitimate reasons for a Vegan diet and / or lifestyle.
At home I have two Omnivores who follow a Vegan diet most of the time, probably by 95 % just now. That is because Vegan food is yummie and they do not miss anything. The old fashioned view of a Vegan diet consisting of some Muesli, unseasoned Tofu or sad Salad is long gone. Yes, there will always be people who shout loudly that a Vegan diet is wrong and how we are not Vegans by nature. There are always people who feel offended by Greggs offering a Vegan Sausage Roll whilst still selling the meat Version. You probably can’t argue with these people. They do not want to hear anything for their own reasons. Maybe they secretly admit that we are right? Whatever the case: Each to their own. You will never win anyone over with just pointing fingers, with just talking about the uncomfortable truth on animal farming and dairy farming. What is convincing is what is out there, what it looks like, how it tasted and how it is full of good nutritions. Show them.
After 10 years of being a Vegan I regret nothing. I will not defend myself for my position. I will not be questioned if I do not follow Veganism to a T either. I will follow my path with passion and good food. This year I would like to explore newer recipes. As is usually the case, you get into a routine of what you are cooking, Vegans are no exceptions here! So off to new shores of the Vegan world.
I hope you have a great 2021 and come here from time to time to find new recipes, blog entries or else.
The future is Vegan.
