Vegan Week One Complete!
This calls for a celebration! More on that in a moment though. You know what else calls for a celebration? I passed a vegan test I gave myself.
Remember a couple posts ago when I said that the real test was going to be the first time I ate out? Well, I did, and I’m still a vegan. While my boyfriend ordered himself something involving meat and dairy which looked and smelled delicious, I had a black bean burger with mustard and no cheese, and a healthy pile of French fries. To go with it, I had two beers–Rhinegeist Rosé Cider and a New Belgium IPA called Citradelic.
Side note: I’m super happy that there are vegan friendly breweries!
Anyways, back to the celebration! Looky what I found at Market District today!
Now, I’m not going to lie. I was a little scurred of vegan ice cream. My experience thus far with vegan dairy replacements have been less than satisfying. The best I could say about any of them is that they’ve been more or less tolerable kind of, so it was with much trepidation that I opened the lid and scooped a little bit out.
OH MY GOSH IT’S FREAKING DELICIOUS!
Vegans: You do ice cream really, really well. I have not said this about any vegan product I have had thus far, but it actually is every bit as good as the “real” thing. No joke. It is also every bit as unhealthy, but you know what? If it weren’t, it definitely wouldn’t taste as good. Ice cream is not a health food.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for knowing that and for doing it right.
