Day 2

For breakfast I had some Ezekiel cinnamon raisin bread with buttery spread and jam--yum! The Ezeikiel bread is made from sprouted grains and has zero grams of sugar, which is a plus. John had previously told me he wasn't much of a breakfast person; now I understand why: yogurt, scrambled eggs, buttermilk pancakes. Animal products, animal products, animal products. When lunch time came around, I made some excellent Mexican food, which s delicious and super easy to prepare. After loading the tortilla, there was one thing missing: what is a delicious burrito without some melty "cheese"?

I grabbed a block of soy cheese out of the fridge, it was a brand John and I had cooked with last week with delicious results.

"Wait," John said. "Check the ingredients Sure enough, the cheese contained caesin, which is milk protein. I felt like I had been betrayed by a block of cheese. Great.

Just to be safe, I checked the package of faux meat. "May Contain Egg." I looked to John for guidance. "If it's not in the ingredients, it's okay." Makes sense. It may contain eggs. Then again, it may not, but there was that vegan guilt again. Should I even support a factory that allows animal products to be processed there? Wouldn't it be guilt by association?

We wrapped up our vegan-cheeseless burritos and put them in the panini maker, which has saved many vegan meals from being pure mush. Tofutti Better Than Sour Cream accompanied the burrito. The burrito was good, but I'm a sour cream fanatic, and this stuff did not hold a candle. It was similar in consistency at best, and tasted like... well, soy. It was pretty nasty.
