It’s Vegan Bitches.
Okay, so Veganism is brand new for me on a full time basis. I prefer to say I’m ‘Virtually Vegan’ What does that mean? Well, if I were to go to a farm where the happy chickens were roaming around, lovingly laying eggs, and then when they could lay no more, someone knit them a sweater and they went on to write children’s books about, ‘The Happiest Farm Ever’…I might eat the egg that said chicken laid before they hung up their work boots. Maybe, we’ll see.
(your judging…stop that)
There are many circumstances, as a Chef, that I might come up against that may sway my new Vegan vibration, you can judge me if you want, but I stand firm in my ‘we’re many things’, lifestyle and I educate from the heart about progress and not perfection. Perfection is for chickens?!
I am ‘virtually’ vegan. None of my business if you aren’t. And if you see me putting honey in my tea - damn straight. I won’t be stopping that anytime soon, but I won’t buy leather anymore, or partake in a steak (how does one humanely KILL a cow?), support the dairy industry, eat bacon with my pancakes, or indulge in some cheap farmed salmon at the sushi local. Nope. But most of that isn’t new for me - see: 10 years. I just wrote it here, so now it’s published and you can hold me accountable. Feel free to write bad things in your blog about me when you see me fucking it up! (*thanks to the guy who wrote about me when I ate some free range duck last month at an established restaurant in Vancouver*).
I have never claimed to be one thing. *quack*
I chose to eat from the earth like 98% of the time, and then sometimes…oops I slipped and my mouth fell on that piece of Machego cheese, (sheep farm, no hormones, babies not snatched from their Mothers FYI). AND if you’re choosing meat, it’s more than okay, I can show you how to eat a little less of it and where to buy from the best choice family farm!
BUT only if you want to hear about it, otherwise I’ll be over here sipping my almond milk latte…with honey.
