I don’t know too many Vegans in real life.
As a matter of fact, no one in my immediate family clan or in my wife’s family are Vegan!
Not even my fellow musical colleagues, nor anyone with whom I’ve worked with before.
Well, I take that back.
There was a Vegan Bartender at a Bistro I used to perform at, who was 100% Vegan, at the time when I was 100% Raw Foodist.
All I remember of her was that she was very skinny and her name was Tiffany.
Anyway, I digress…
Sometimes, I feel all alone because I have no one to connect with in real life who’s a Vegan. But I’m a member of one of those local Vegan groups who interact on Meetup.com.
I’ll definitely have to attend one of their meetups!
But many times it feels like this Vegan journey is one in which I stand alone.
The passion is there.
But so is the aloneness.
Having said all that, I am very enthusiastic about being Vegan (again).
How do I feel?
I actually feel great, health-wise, that is.
This morning, for instance, I made my first ever Tofu Scramble, after searching the web for several recipes and then concocting my own recipe to fit my taste buds.
I’ll try to upload an official recipe post soon, and it has more of an Indian flair to it, meaning I’ve included Turmeric, Corriander and Cumin, along with White Onions and Garlic.
It really tastes quite good, and not-so-much closer to real scrambled eggs than it is a hybrid of sorts.
I tried it with Medium Firm Tofu, but thinking again about it, most online recipes stress the need for Extra Firm Tofu and I think I’ll go with that next time.
