Being vegan ain't so bad.
Although I've slacked (or snacked!) lately. Today I was offered a gingerbread man cookie and took one, and then I was offered some goldfish and took some. Then I felt kind of guilty, but then contemplated if I was actually opposed to animal products in the first place, and if so, why the hell would I care anyway. But whatever. Being vegan has been fun because I get to come up with cool new recipes. For example, the other day I made chocolate cookies with coconut milk instead of eggs and butter. Try it--they're delish. Or use carob instead of chocolate if you want to be hardcore. And I've also made a totally vegan cheesecake with tofu and almond butter, and it turned out really well. I'm not into the Tofutti, garden-burger, monterrey-jack-style-soy-cheese, hydrogenated soy sour cream crap. I just enjoy exploring my natural plant options as a plant-appreciation sort of project, if you will. So don't worry Debbie, we won't be eating raw celery sticks and dried biscuits for dinner our senior year.
