I was recently on a cooking show with some delicious food (and I’m talking about the food that’s cooking on your plate, not the “show” that was cooking it) and there was one dish that really stuck with me. It was the vegan version of a dish that would make a vegan person drool. It was a dish that was vegan because it was made with tofu. The chef served it to a woman who had been vegan for years.
That was the best vegan dish I’ve had. I think there is probably a place for it but it just didn’t work for me. I’m not saying that the vegan version is bad because it’s really good. I’m saying that it’s not what I would have ordered.
I have to agree with you. I cant get into the food network shows because Ive always hated them. I just dont know what they are trying to sell me.
I think what you are getting at is the difference between a vegan and a vegetarian. Vegans are mostly concerned with the nutritional value and the taste. The vegetarian is more concerned with dieting and what it feels like to be alive. The vegan is more about the feeling of living.
Vegan means a person who abstains from all animal-based foods, meat, and eggs. Vegans use the term vegetarian primarily to describe a person who eats plant-based foods but does not follow a diet. The two terms may be used interchangeably. Vegans are generally more concerned with nutrition and health, while vegetarians are more concerned with diet and the feeling of living.
This is often overlooked, but the vegetarian in this case is female. Many people who aren’t vegetarian or vegan do not eat meat. It may be hard to avoid eating meat, but it’s worth remembering that it’s not about the food, it’s about the message. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, you might be thinking that you’re missing out on the “feel of living” part of it.
Well, for many, the feeling of living is often more important than the food. After all, why would a person be able to feel satisfied eating the delicious, but possibly unhealthy, food that they may or may not be able to afford? Vegetarian and vegan diets are more focused on the feeling than the food. This is why they tend to be so expensive.
The point is, if you are paying for a vegetarian or vegan diet, you probably want to know how to do it. It certainly doesn’t hurt to know how to cook meat if you don’t eat much meat.
In the food network, chefs are people who offer food. The point is that they are not vegetarians or vegans and that they are often, although not always, people who specialize in the food that they offer, and because of this, they are usually not vegan or vegetarian. This is because many people are not aware of the differences between vegan and vegetarian diets.
This is a good point because I’m always thinking about vegans and vegetarians when I think of chefs. It doesn’t help that the term “chef” is often used to mean “food writer” or “food critic” but this can be confusing when you go to a restaurant and they just say “chef”.
