Yes, you read that right, vegan seafood! AAAHHHH!!!!
I’ve been a vegetarian for a little over 3 years now. It hasn’t been easy, as I’ve lived my life loving a good rare piece of meat. I became a vegetarian for ethical reasons, after only being able to see 5 seconds of a video about factory farming. The image of a sick cow trying to get up only to be dragged by a forklift will haunt me for the rest of my life. After seeing that, I no longer wanted to be part of that world. And if you eat meat, you are part of that world.
But, I digress. Since that time I haven’t been able to satisfy my love of seafood. There are quite a few companies that make some amazing tasting fake meat products. But seafood isn’t an easy thing to fake. Imagine my surprise when one day I walked into Whole Foods and found http://www.sophieskitchen.com (I tried to add the link another way but it wasn’t working. So far, I’ve had the “fish” filets and Prawns. The prawns were very tasty, but the filets are to die for! Tomorrow I’m trying the shrimp. I’m hoping they are as good as the other two products. They also have calamari, but I’ll skip those since I was never crazy about real calamari. Ick.
Even if you aren’t a vegan or vegetarian, you might want to go and have a try. Replacing even just one or two meals a week with meatless products will make a huge difference to keeping some of these animals from being needlessly killed.
