Vegan's Hundred

Craig and I aren't strictly vegan these days, but we do enjoy eating vegan when we can find or work out a recipe; which is to say, most of the time.

Anyway I found this on a number of vegan blogs; it seems to have originated from Bittersweet. Apparently, food blogs everywhere have been putting around an "Omnivore's Hundred" list, or a list of foods every omnivore should try; well, vegans being the competitive food-types they are, have put together their own list.

I like when other people make lists of small-time accomplishments like this; it makes me feel very productive. It's like when people list the Top Ten Movies You Must Watch Before You Die, and two of them are John Hughes flicks (may he sleep well). You can't help feeling like you've ticked something off your list...even if it was a rather insignificant thing that wasn't really on your list until someone else wrote up a list. Anyway-- here it is for us...how about you?

  1. Why are ceviche, caviar, and scrapple on a vegan food list? Are there vegan substitues for fish, fish eggs, and all the random parts that go in scrapple?

  2. I think for ones that are definitively meat, you're meant to indicate you've eaten the vegan version, so yeah, I guess maybe I could somehow obtain vegan substitutes for haggis, pate, ceviche, caviar, etc.

    Not that I'd ever want to.

    Some things should remain outside my realm of understanding.

  3. Thanks for participating- It's cool to see that this list is still making the rounds! :)
