J.Kenji Lopez-Alt of Serious Eats eats vegan meals for a month during the 32 days between 1 February and 4 March. This is the second year he has done this. He catalogs his experiences and his recipes...
Boy was I pleased to read he has never tasted a vegan convenience product he liked and is encouraging people to cook.
Whether vegetarian or vegan, I always felt from the beginning of my switch that you had to get away from typical North American eating habits if you were going to stick to the diet.
Eating out of box probably makes it feel like taking medicine to some people, hence the bad rap with those who've never tried good meat free eats.
Such a great point. When I first went veg in the 1980s, my parents (now in their 70s) were totally confounded (they still are - their brains only recognize food when it is American-style). Mom kept trying to broil tofu on those hideous metal "sizzle plates" that you could run under the broiler and stick in a melamine or resin holder for the table (ick, they remind me of burned on meat juices). As we all know, treating a slice of tofu like a pork chop is generally not a winning idea....

I love this idea. Unfortunately my husband wouldn't go for it. But I've been reading along and am making a dish of his tonight (husband is away - ha!). Thanks for pointing this out. I've really gotten a lot out of it.
Don't think I could ever go with vegan cheese though, sorry to say.
