Here’s a question for you veg*ns out there: since you ditched meat/dairy/eggs, have you tried any of the substitutes for things that you never ate when you were omni?
For instance, I always turned up my nose at tuna. Yet, I bought Tuno because it intrigued me. Actually, I’ve bought it a few times and even made tuna salad with it, which would have grossed out a 20-year-old version of me.
And when my wife and I were in New York and had lunch at Red Bamboo, we ordered their calamari. I’ve never had calamari in my life, but tried the vegan version and enjoyed it (so did the wife).
Most recently—yesterday to be exact—I bought some Ricemellow Creme and made a fluffernutter for lunch. I think I’ve had one fluffernutter in my life previous to this, but how could I pass up a product like vegan marshmallow fluff? I mean, just by the very fact it exists, I was forced to try it.
(By the way, Ricemellow Creme is so good. Don’t tell anyone, but I was dipping my fingers into it last night and eating it plain. And it’s not even that bad for you… 2 tablespoons contain 40 calories, no fat, no sodium, no nothing, except for a little sugar. It’s made out of only rice nectar, soy protein, natural gums, and natural flavor.)
