Real food is so full of flavour one can't seem to grasp when they're used to junk. It's a darn shame.
People think eating vegan is so "bland" and won't "fill you up", but it actually becomes the opposite when you know what you're doing. I hear all the time "steak is so tasty". Right! So why is it you have to salt, pepper, and spice it, then cover it in sauce and dip it in ketchup? hmmmm
The longer and longer someone goes without such things the more clear it becomes what exactly they were doing and why. I love the fact that when I drink a serving of fresh orange juice I actually get a "high" off of it! Not a "bad" high like a sugar rush or anything like that, but one like if you drank a huge glass of V8 juice (which I used to drink but don't anymore). I can't even describe the feeling.
That's not even mentioning the TASTE of it that once you get away from all the made up JUNK, becomes extravagant! A double plus! If people only knew my daily experiences outside of their nutritionally absent soft drinks and "juice drinks". And that's just a beverage! What really lets me know I have it so good is the food. All the recipes out there! wow!
I'm making some (vegan) Cajun style red beans and rice today and it will be better than anything else they could possibly make on Mardi Gras!
