This weekend Soon-to-be-J.D. and I were in NYC stuffing our faces with amazing vegan food. Some of the food was quick cook rice approved: raw enchiladas, coffee shops where you don’t have to ask for the non-dairy milk, and the once-a-year NYC bagel covered in tofu cream “cheese.” Some of the food definitely falls solidly under the manfood category: pancakes, tofu scramble, and nachos. Neither category is better, though one is certainly a bit healthier.
The thing is: I’m starting to believe that truly healthy eating is when we eat without regard for labels (except the vegan one for me). If you can tolerate certain ingredients and aren’t allergic, then I don’t see why you shouldn’t indulge in some vegan “junk” food once in a while.
