Thank you to SuperVegan for calling BULLSHIT on Mark Bittman. This is why Mark Bittman is a poseur. Even though it’s always better whenever someone eats vegan, the only true reason for veganism is ethical, animal-rights/animal-equality based veganism (plus all the wonderful benefits of non-participation, like not contributing to the industry and the environmental destruction and the exploitation of animals and humans trapped in the industry).
Also, yesterday I went to my local vegan bakery and purchased an epic chocolate-creme whoopie pie. I decided not to get a milkshake and a grilled cheese with tomato, avocado, and bacon, but I could have if I wanted to. All of these things can be vegan and they are just as delicious as the non-vegan options! They are available death-free, but you can listen to darkwave while you enjoy them.
