I'm not complaining about processed foods, just vagueness. I want better feedback. What's wrong with BBQ tempeh? Or tamales? Or all the other million choices? What is it that exists in this universe that's not available here and should be?

It's a root, to harvest it, you must kill the plant. Alternatively, they are overly stimulating flavours and therefore not ascetic.

This is the reason I was given. I'd rather just be stimulated, thanks.

The people next door are cooking an entire lamb in their backyard. They go to a farm every year and pick out which lamb they want slaughtered for them. My whole house stinks like roasting animal.

This surprises me as when I studied Buddhism I was told that the starting point of the whole belief system was the idea of the middle way- neither asceticism nor overindulgence. Personally I wouldn't go quite so far as to describe tasting onion as being overindulging, but then again thinking of never eating onions again makes me very sad and imagining the taste of fried onions fills me with longing, so I'm probably deluding myself.

Funnily enough someone was talking about very devout people she knew in India who didn't eat onions and garlic. She explained it by saying that if you trimmed the green shoots of an onion, they would grow back, so they're like hair, but if you dig up the bulb of an onion it dies. So I asked if she meant these people didn't eat any root vegetables and she said yes, but onions and garlic were about the only ones there were.
This morning I happened to wonder about potatoes- I know they're in plenty of Indian cuisine, so they're obviously available in at least parts of India, though I don't know which parts or which parts the none onion- and garlic eating-people came from. But anyway, a potato is a root vegetable, but you can burrow away under a potato plant an pull out the big potatoes and leave the smaller ones to grow bigger, without harming the plant. So I was pondering that this morning.

There are other groups who don't eat onions and garlic too - some groups in India - Vaishnavas, for example - don't either because they are classified as rajasic or passion inducing and overstimulating in Ayurvedic cooking. Jains don't eat onions or garlic either because of the harvesting conundrum.

The cafe I bake for posted an inside shot of the creme eggs I made for them on their facebook page, and someone posted this:

Truth. I mostly thought it was funny, in a facepalm kind of way. I mean, I didn't have any problem selling them so obviously most people didn't care. I think some people just miss the boat on the fact that some of us eat things that replicate non-vegan things because we really enjoyed them, and there's a level of nostalgia involved in them looking and tasting the same, especially things associated with holidays and special occasions.

And besides, what about eating chocolate bunnies? Is that off limits too? If I buy vegan gummy bears have I gone too far? No one is going to confuse a chocolate egg-shaped confection for a real egg, it's so stupid. I just wish the vegan police would stop telling other vegans what vegan foods they are and aren't allowed to eat and enjoy, based on their own personal brand of crazy.

I'd have been tempted to reply: "I hope telling you to eat me doesn't go against the entire fundamental principles of veganism, because I am just going to go ahead and make that recommendation."

Poopiebitch, I got the same spiel when I made vegan deviled eggs. They looked extremely realistic, and one omni told me that the only thing that gave it away as a vegan egg was that the white didn't 'tear' the way a hardboiled egg would. A vegan told me I was glamorizing deviled eggs. I just walked away.

That seems like such a horrible thing to do. Lambs are such lovely creatures and I struggle to comprehend the idea of someone just pointing at one and deciding that it should die for their pleasure.

There's also the fact that eggs are symbolic of life and renewal, which is what the holiday celebrates. You don't need to eat a real egg (or bunny or lamb -ugh-) to celebrate the return of life after winter, or Jesus' resurrection. In fact it seems bizarre that you would kill a baby animal to celebrate life and renewal.
