I Can't Believe I Ate Vegan!
Trick someone into eating a Vegan Meal for IMBB #19
For many people the word vegan conjures up negative images. Sandal-wearing, pale-skinned, tofu-eating, knit your own meusli, animal liberation activist, are adjectives that might come to mind. I have even witnessed the desperation a vegan feels about what other people think of her life choices. In an outburst responding to my review of a Raw Cafe, one vegan jumped to the conclusion that everyone perceives her as a retarded, scabies-infested, hippy trustafarian (her words, not mine). But it really doesn't have to be that way. Please, let's all give the Vegans a break.
The challenge, for IMBB#19, should you care to join in, (and I hope you all will), is to cast any aspersions aside, and conjure up some Vegan food so fantastic that anyone who eats it won't even be the slightest bit aware that absolutely no animal-derived produce has passed their lips.
Think laterally, be creative, and if possible try it out on someone without telling them what you are up too. When they finish eating your fabulous meal, they'll turn to you and say wow, that was so delicious! Then and only then, will you be able to spill the Vegan beans. If you do your job well, they'll be telling all their friends: "I can't believe I ate Vegan!".
PS. If Meathenge doesn't enter, I am going to be very upset : (
How to Join In:
Make a Vegan dish, a Vegan meal, a Vegan picnic or go to town and host an entirely Vegan dinner party. The choice is yours. If you are able, take some photos and then write and publish a blog post about your Vegan experience(s) on any day between September 26 and September 30th 2005.
This time we will be experimenting with an auto-roundup. All you have to do is add a little piece of code to the end of your post and all the entries will automatically have their own IMBB#19 Technorati Tag. Copy and paste the following to the bottom of your IMBB#19 post:
|Tagged with: <a href="http://technorati.com/tag/IMBB19" rel="tag">IMBB # 19</a> + <a href="http://technorati.com/tag/Vegan" rel="tag">Vegan</a>|
And then once you have published your post, visit Technorati to ping them with your site. Derrick has suggested you might also have to claim you blog at Technorati in order for this to work. I am not sure about this. I will look into it when I get back from vacation. In the meantime, claiming is easy. Head to Food Blog S'cool if you need to discuss the technicalities further.
Additionally, if you would like to be included in the IMBB#19 round up on my blog, which I will endeavour to complete in a timely manner, please email me at becks dot posh at gmail dot com with the following information: The name of your Vegan dish(es) and the permalink url of your post. Please just put the word Vegan in the subject line so I can easily filter and track my IMBB#19 mail. Thank you. You are an industrious bunch, I can't wait to see what amazing Vegan things you all come up with.
