A Typical Vegan Meal
Dear Omnivorous Friend,
I appreciate that you care about me enough to send me links to articles that debase my chosen path in life. Perhaps you feel it validates your carnivorous tendencies to take certain compartmentalized inconsistencies with some vegans and spray paint them gold for the world to see. Or, more telling, and quite possibly more to the point, you feel guilty for your personal choices and this makes you feel better about your choices.
I realize that the headline for that LA Times article you stumbled upon this weekend clearly says “Vegan Doesn’t Necessarily Mean Healthy” but the portrayal isn’t indicative of every vegan everywhere. We don’t all live on potato chips and Taco Bell.
Most vegans I know are equipped with the tools to make their diet work for them. But, just in case, I’ve taken the liberty of cc’ing every uninformed vegan in the whole world and putting them on notice: Know your diet! You’re more likely to stay a vegan if you do it right! And, yes, you can still eat potato chips!
Frankly, knowing more about health and proper nourishment is good for everybody!
As it stands now, asking most people about nutrition is like asking a newborn baby about Justin Bieber. The answer involves a lot of crying and sh*tting. So. Like. Know your diet dude!
