    Oh that's so depressing.



    Random happy thing: stumbled upon vegan white chocolate at Pak N Save of all places today. In the long run this could be a very dangerous thing, but oh well.

    I eat a lot more varied food now. Even more so after going vegan than when I was vegetarian (because then it was like the whole "substitute meat for lots of dairy and eggs!!" thing).
  29. Poll: Re: "Honestly: Do you think vegan food is as tasty as the food you ate before?"

    I think vegan food is tastier, but also I was a really picky child so I guess I never got around to loving meaty foods in a big way.
