Happy Vegan Easter! At least 5 people have now told me directly that I’m obviously going to have a shit Easter because I’m vegan. This is absolute crap, and as I’m sure you know by now, I never met a piece of crap I didn’t want to call out. I thought I’d quickly debunk their ridiculous points in case any of you were sat at home feeling sorry for egg-less, bunny-less, crazy hippie vegan me. Please note, everything I’ve said below I also said back to the people in question.
You can’t eat any chocolate eggs! What’s the point of Easter without chocolate? Vegan chocolate is great, and it exists, and it’s great, and it tastes no difference to “normal” milk chocolate. People think we’re limited to carob (what even is carob), or weird blocks of soil-like cardboard. Luckily vegan chocolate tastes the same, if not better, because no murdered/grossly mutilated/depressed animals were involved. I actually had three chocolate bunnies (white, dark and honeycomb chocolate), a pack of buttons and an Easter egg yesterday.
But you could have had so much more chocolate! You had such a small amount of Easter goodies! I’ll be honest here – yes I could have, and I did see a lot of my friends sharing pictures of 40 kilos of foil-clad chocolate eggs, but (and I know this is hard to believe) I genuinely didn’t want that much chocolate. The me-not-eating-my-weight-in-chocolate thing had nothing to do with a lack of vegan chocolate and was more of a I-don’t-want-to-feel-horrific-this-evening. But thanks for your concern!
You can’t have a good Easter roast! So for me personally, I didn’t grow up eating any of the traditional “roasted” meats like lamb, beef, pork, steak (is steak a roast? I have no idea, I’m making this up), so I don’t really know what it involves. But I’ve never missed it, and I don’t think Easter needs to revolve around a roast – in my house there was never an “Easter Roast” and I’m pretty sure it hasn’t damaged me as a person…
What about a chocolate egg hunt? First of all I’m not 7. secondly I CAN STILL DO THIS IF I WANT I CAN JUST GET NON-DAIRY EGGS. 🙂
