Oops, I Did it Again...

We ate Vegan Dad's Mexican Tofu.... AGAIN! I still haven't tried the beans he created with it, but that BBQ sauce is amazing! It was a little spicier than last time, but with a baked potato it is fantastic!

A couple nights ago we were talking about a review of the book "Eating Animals" in some magazine (the name of it escapes me right now) and I mentioned remembering reading a review somewhere, maybe in a blog (this story is going somewhere, I promise) and how the author seemed to carry the message well, but stopped short of giving up (or discussing in depth) dairy. We talked about how we feel like hypocrites because we still eat cheese and have been eating eggs lately too. If we say our motivation for being vegetarians is centered around our feelings about the cruel practices involved in the production of animal products, how can we keep eating cheese! Cheese is the gateway to allowing some animal products back in to our kitchen. The eggs, an occasional tuna sandwich, maybe some shrimp. So, once again we make that commitment to a vegan eating. The eggs are long gone from the house, we finished or tossed the last of the cheese last night and we start today free of those terrible things that some people call food, and stand by our decision to stop eating animals.
