i'm asking if you know vegans that don't like what available for them to eat and find it a real problem or an extreme problem to be vegans?
i'm finding my self for example like i feel vegans don't aware much about the qualities of their foods. and not talk about it much.
hmmm. i know that it can often be difficult to find something nice in a normal restaurant or outside of my home, but i think that if you choose to eat in a different way, you need to accept that you might not always find it easy to find food which suits you. i often end up with salad when i eat out, but i don't get cross about it- i have nice food in my house, and i am lucky that i can go and find a vegan restaurant or grocery store, and that i have the money to buy nice food.
even vegans in very small towns or who aren't very wealthy, living in America, Canada, or the UK, should be able to find plenty of nice food which they can eat- they just have to learn about food, try new things, and learn to cook, - and not try and buy ready-made junk-food things that they might be used to buying. they might not have nice vegan restaurants near them, but could probably talk to chefs in normal restaurants, and get something made especially for them- asian, middle-eastern, and indian places are good for vegan food.
i think that if you choose to be vegan, you should be prepared to make an effort to find things/places to eat which suit you, to learn how to feed yourself properly (and to cook!), and to accept that sometimes the things which you can eat in a normal restaurant, might not be your favourite or first choice of foods.
you have to be prepared to try new foods, educate yourself, and to help people around you to make your life easier- by showing and telling friends and family and restaurants what you can eat, or would like to eat, and by being friendly and helpful and enthusiastic- it helps you to get your way, and them to learn, and feel happier and more confident when they need to make you food!
perhaps vegans don't talk about their food a lot around non-vegans, because it often causes arguements and upset (the non-vegans can get very defensive). i don't have any vegan friends in real life to talk about my food with, but i do talk to vegetarian friends, and non-veggie friends about food quite a bit.
still. canada has million times better what to offer me than my origin country.
other than that. i think people in my country are much less knowledgeable about why other places has much better vegan food options.
but i also think people in my country in general are extremely unaware of the food quality in other places lie Us and canada. or others.
i think vegans (and non vegans) in Canada, America, the UK, and many other countries, are very lucky to have the level of money, choice, and availability of knowledge that they do. i also think many people who haven't travelled or learned much about the world, don't realise how much choice they have, or how lucky they are to have so much food, choice, and the opportunity to learn and study.
i think that most people learn about food and healthy eating from school and their family and friends, and the information they get isn't always useful or interesting enough for them to study it more, or remember it. i probably don't know anywhere near as much as i should about food. i think lots of the information we do get, isn't accurate either- eg: we are told that milk and cheese is good for us, when it makes so many people sick.
i think that in the 1st world people are so used to having food everywhere, and quite good healthcare, that we maybe put food into our mouths without thinking where it comes from, and how it affects us, and the world around us. hopefully vegans, because they have chosen a different path (that involves thinking about the world around them), are more likely to choose to learn and think about their food and their health, too.
