Definitely, seeing as I only used to eat ready meals which are usually rank, our food tastes fantastic now. Although to be fair everything tastes wonderful now I've given up smoking:D

I've become more adventurous and better at cooking. So for food I make it is better than it used to be.
AMEN :D

Good for you!

I was lucky, I smoked for a year and then I stopped. :) I'm glad I did.

I didn't vote because I haven't been vegan for very long, and while i find myself sometimes wanting "omni" food, I think it may be "withdraw" or habit, or tradition, or whatever. Give me a year being vegan and I'll vote then, ok?:p

For that reason we are here. Also because the vegan food have better flavor and each one does not have responsibility in the abuses of the production of food animal's origin.

Best regards.

I love love love! vegan food! I have always been a huge vegetable and fruit eater to the point that I will open a can of green beans and eat that for a meal. I feel 100% better being a vegan. I totally thought I would be craving chocolate or all the goodies my mother is always buying that contains milk or eggs. But not at all! Its amazing! I don't even miss junk food! If I need anything sweet I buy trail mix dry fruit. It taste just like candy to me.

I think a lot of the reason our food is tastier as vegans is because, I relied so heavily on dairy as a vegetarian and even when loosing weight I ate low-fat dairy instead. Our diet got bland and boring, although it was probably a lot more exciting than the traditional meat with two veg or burger and chips. Now we have to make an effort and vary our meals but already we've got firm favourites.

A lot of the soya alternatives to dairy such as soy cheese and egg free mayonnaise are as high in fat as their full-fat dairy counterparts. I am so careful with my weight so I restrict my use of these products and use tofu, beans, chickpeas, fruit and veg, wholegrains etc.

Before going vegan I had no idea how to cook chickpeas or lentils. Now I do I am eating a diet that is naturally low-fat so I am not having to count calories as much. I do feed my daughter soy cheese and toffuti cream cheese though as well as nut butters because of course she needs the calories. My husband eats them because he's 6 foot 2, rake thin and eats like food is going out of fashion!:) I put the weight on just by watching him eat! So tofu is a godsend, it's low in fat and can be used for anything I don't know how I managed so long without it.

i beleive that both taste the same but am not willing to break my veganism to prove it, the difference that can be seen without tasting is that when you eat vegan food you know that it is doing no harm to you and it is doing no harm to you and so you feel better and it tastes better.
My theory at leist!!

Good taste or good feeling is no worth insane acts. Slightly better i would say, because i am feeling more present.

I like that I need to eat more midfully. It makes me appreciate my food, its complexities, and its nourishing qualities.

I LOVE vegan food, but I think that's partly because I'm getting a lot more organic food and because I'm cooking a lot of things from scratch that I didn't before. Homemade food (assuming you know how to cook, which I do) is always better than that processed stuff.

Hiya Puffin :) It's made from sugar and sesame, so it's like a block of solid sweet tahini that melts in your mouth. And it sort of fizzles like sherbet. Lovely.

Get yourself to Al Amin on Mill Rd in Cambridge - they have several different sorts :)
