it sucks being a vegan in denmark.
well, at least i'm assuming. two of my (unsurprisingly non-danish) friends are vegans and i can't imagine how they don't go nuts living in a country that is famous for its pork and dairy products. the meat section in a supermarket here is usually larger than the fruit/veg sections combined; it seems like it's almost next to grains in their food pyramid. sorry for the poor image quality, but that photo above was taken by my cellphone in stockholm. do i spy (with my tiny eyes) two types of kimchi? and multiple varieties of non-dairy milk? denmark... you have a long way to go.
what with all the barbecues at summer parties, or at least attempts at them despite lack of sunshine, there is usually several kinds of you-know-what sitting on the grill. i often think of my vegan friends getting their daily nutrition at these parties from just beer. and some potatoes, if they're lucky.
sometimes i eat vegan for a day, just because i'm bored or even too lazy to make something. the photo up there is a vegan stuffing i made from leftover homemade (duh) bread and rescued celery. who says you gotta wait 'til thanksgiving? anyway the branching-off from traditional cooking and especially baking methods genuinely interests me and i can certainly stand by the ethics standpoint of being vegan. but i can't bring myself to give up cheese and fish forever. sorry, guys. ):
