So let me tell you, this whole vegan thing can on occasions, be real hard. Especially when it's the Jewish festival of Shavuot, which it was last week. The festival itself which obviously includes eating, is basically related around cheese. Cheesecake, mac and cheese, quiche, literally anything involving cheese is what you eat. So the day comes where I haven't eaten cheese for about a month and I decide I want 'pizza toast.' So I go to my fridge to find the sliced vegan cheese I bought a while back. Looking at the packet I am wondering whether I should really eat it or not. I mean, it looks like plastic sheets of yellow shit to be honest but my craving kicks in so I decide it's time to try it.
I open the pack and tear a bit of the cheese off to taste and GAG. People who know me know that I have an awful gag reflex. The smell of something bad can make me gag like you have never heard! So anyway I gag. HARDCORE GAGGING!! Not only does it look like yellow plastic grossness but it tastes worse than that. I am actually appalled about the taste going on in my mouth; I eat a whole spoonful of peanut butter to reignite my taste buds of something wonderful.
Moral of the story is, if something looks gross, it is probably bound to taste worse. Oh well, time to make cheesecake. (Vegan of course!)
