A Day in the life of a vegan food blogger 1. Messages sent to my facebook page/ social media with pictures of dead animals 2. comments on the recipes with pictures of dead animals or animals in the process of being killed 3. Needs bacon in comments and messages 4. Comments by Indians getting offended by peanut butter chickpea curry. you know coz chickpeas can only make chole (Indian chickpea curry). 5. Comments by Indians on my Traditional Indian recipes like dals.... gora food (translation..white people's version of food). 6. flour, sugar, soy, oil so awful. this recipe sucks. comments in Caps seriously, cant win the interwebs any day

  1. Richa, I LOVE all your recipes and none of them have failed me on a first attempt! Always so delicious and flavourful. Last ommnomm: Thai Salad with Chickpea Carrot Crumble—utterly amazing!

    The internet is dumb. Sending love <3 !

  3. Hi, Richa--

    I have not eaten "meat" (as Americans so proudly refer to the cruelly slaughtered animals they eat every day) for almost five years now. My husband and I very recently decided to refrain from eating dairy and it has been one of the best decisions we've made as a couple. I don't usually comment on the web as I do not have a social media presence but seeing this post angered me and moved me to respond to you. I have barely touched the surface with your recipes and am SO GRATEFUL for your contribution! Similar to the previous post, I, too, hope you don't let these ridiculous people get to you--for your benefit and for your readers' of course :-P. Without your creativity and openness, us plant-based folks would be a lost cause. Born in the U.S. and of Central American decent, I feel you on points 4. and 5. C'est la vie, you can't make everyone happy, nor should you try too. : ) you, your partner, and your pup should come first.

    Stay strong,
    Mish

    1. I know right. I usually just ignore them, or hide them or delete some.

      Thank you for the wonderful note and thank you for cooking up my recipes! All the best for your journey.
