This is probably the first question you'll be asking your new significant other. You'll probably have already asked this question by the time that you read this. Fear not! It's not that bad of a question, as long as you have the right tone of voice. Asking in that snide tone of voice that all your friends will be using soon, you're screwed. But, if you ask in that hopeful-of-making-yourself-a-better-person tone of voice you're still in the game. Remember these points:
So, just what DO Vegans eat? Well, they eat fruits and vegetable and rices and beans and pasta.... Everything that you eat, they just don't rely on the killing of animals to do so. There are a lot of veggies alone and evven more ways of preparing them. Then you have your rice and beans in countless combinations. Of course you can't forget your pasta, where would we be without pasta. Think Chinese is out? Think again, most of the Chinese dishes you enjoy can be enjoied just as well without meat or animal products. And if you get a hankerin' for meat, take a stroll through your local natural food or chinese store. There are tons of different "fake" meats on the market (and no, fake crab meat isn't one of them). So you see, Vegans aren't limited to lettuce and celery as once was thought.
In fact their diet is probably even more varied than yours. Take a look at what you eat in one week. Pretty sad isn't it. There's probably pizza, maybe some macarroni and cheese. Ohhh, cereal that's exciting. You can probably count the different kinds of foods on one hand, can't you? Now take a look at the one week menu of your significant other. Wow, that's a lot of stuff isn't it? See what I mean?
But the best way to find out "What does a Vegan eat?" is to ask. You just might be supprised at what you'll learn.
Now that you've discovered the vast array of foods that a Vegan can/will eat, you're probably thinking that you're up to the task of cooking a romantic dinner for two. Way to go! Nothin' says lovin' like a dinner cooked by you.
Of course you'll have to go shopping first......
It's a daunting task, espically the first time. I'll try and help you out in Chapter III:
