|Does eating this seem difficult? (Image from Daily Candy: Boston.)|
Don't get me wrong, going and being vegan can be incredibly frustrating at times, but I would not call it DIFFICULT. If you're committed to the decision, it's just something you do.
It's certainly not as hard in Boston, where we have several vegan and vegetarian restaurants, and more and more restaurants are offering a vegan entree option or are willing to whip something up.
The intrepid reporter appears to have staked out Allston's Peace O' Pie to find sources for this article. Which is a gimme and a little lazy, in my opinion. It doesn't even sound as though she walked two doors up to Grasshopper (another vegan restaurant) to find additional interview subjects.
Don't eat, use, or wear animal products. Be specific in restaurant (I don't eat cheese, cream, milk, butter, eggs, meat, poultry, fish, or anything with those ingredients or cooked with those ingredients. Annoying? Yes. Difficult? No.) Read labels. Be diligent, persistent, and vocal.
And if you don't want to be vegan? That's cool. I'm not judging you. Honestly! And yes, I'll still share my cookies.
