What’s Good About Being Vegan

Don’t miss the food photos below!

There’s a lot of negativity attached to vegan lifestyles; I won’t go in to it in great detail here because it’s very easy to find on the web. Whole lotta vegan bashing going on, including by haughty health-supremacist vegans who blame others for any negativity. Sure there are way-out-there goofy vegans who are used to tar everyone, but we have to transcend all that. We can’t control others’ behavior and the backlash isn’t really their fault.

Vegan-bashing is some particularly nasty rubbish, due to a particularly nasty backlash against those who bring to light some sorely needed fundamental changes that need to be made by all of us if we’re to create a much better world. And this backlash has been going on for decades. Yuck.

Contrary to all that, here’s what’s simply great about being vegan:

1) No longer taking part in what we know is wrong.suffering-schweitzer

2) The truly awesome foods; everything from a simple piece of delicious fruit (or a dozen) to a most complicated recipe in reminiscence of some longed-for comfort food…veganized.

3) The way eating cleanly and lightly (free of animal fat and blood and suffering) makes us feel inside. It’s a wonderful feeling, as shown here by long-time vegan Michael Engel, teacher, photo from VegansAreCool.com:long-time vegan mike engel vegansarecool.com

4) Did I mention… The Food?

Much more could be said, but my aim was just to showcase a sampling of amazing vegan dishes that illustrate perfectly what’s so great about omitting animal foods from our lives. So here they are…enjoy:
