I tried vegan pizza for the second time today.
Everything is fine, except for the cheese. I just can’t get over how gooey it is. It’s nothing like cheese.
The pepperoni, however, is great. I can’t tell the difference. Same thing with the bacon. I tried it on a vegan burger. The bacon was great, but I think I need to try a new kind of meat.
Something that keeps coming up with me is the worry that so much of this fake-meat ends up being really processed and gross, as far as ingredients go. I don’t really know how to recognize this yet, so I don’t know.
I have still been eating meat, like when I go out with friends and I don’t have a choice but to starve. But all of our groceries have been vegetarian and vegan. There is so much out there that is vegan, like pancakes, french toast, and the meat I described earlier, that is just awesome.
I’m still on the fence about what being vegan is actually doing. My family’s food choices (along with many others) might be having some kind of impact on the animal cruelty industry, but we were a family that went out of our way to get “better” kinds of meat.
I just wonder, like, I try to research the different brands to find less cruel practices for cows and chicken when I buy (I have never heard of bison cruelty. Does this exist?). But, I think now trying to go vegan makes one less supporter of less cruel meat producers, meanwhile all the same people are supporting McDonalds and Foster Farms. That’s not even considering the insignificant impact my family has when considering the fast food consumers, etc.
I just hate so many aspects of my life, I have to sacrifice my happiness and convenience while so many others live care-free lives of ignorant bliss.
