My wife and I recently threw a 1st birthday party for our daughter and obviously as vegans everything there was vegan. You name it and it was vegan. We had a meat and cheese plate, we had cake, we had cupcakes, we had candy, we ordered pizza, we had stuffed olives, literally we had a huge spread of food for our guests and all of it was vegan without them knowing or us advertising it. It’s funny because we received so many compliments throughout the party from both kids and parents and living in Chicago when you receive compliments about pizza you know people really liked it. We had a buffalo "chicken" pizza, a Philly "cheese steak", and a "pepperoni" and still people couldn't believe how good it was. I think this speaks to the quality of the vegan food that is available these days, the market has been flooded with products and continues to be flooded with products but all of it is quality. It is not only about the products, though, it is also the restaurants and the people preparing the food. The vegan community is on a mission to prove that the food we eat is as good if not better and the love they put into it transfers to your plate. I would imagine as we move along and veganism continues to grow companies are going to push less than quality products in an attempt to catch a piece of the profits but the products out there right now are top notch. I can’t wait to continue to dupe people and blow their minds as to how good the vegan community has it and we aren’t “just eating salads”.
Have you had similar experiences and what were people’s reactions?
