Thank you. They sell for about $6 for 12 marshmallows, so they aren't cheap, but they are delicious! Just like you, I draw a sharp line with broth & always ask when I eat out (did you know Pei-Wei cooks their noodles in chicken broth?).

I used to grind soybeans and rice to make my own veggie burgers! Don't be fooled by a brand called Vegan Supreme Marshmallows, by Emes Kosher-Jel. I respect vegetarians and vegans for a number of reasons….but something that I never put together is how educated you all are about what’s it your food!

I had no idea about all the little animal product uses. If I ordered a dish and there was a chunk of meat in it, I would definitely return it AND ask for my meal to be comped. I bet there’s a lot of vegetarians out there who use make-up tested on animals and don’t even know it. I’ve slowly been becoming a vegetarian and it’s nice to know that others have this same gray area (so much less pressure!). Vegetarians are annoyed when meat eaters don’t respect our choices, and I think meat eaters have a right to be annoyed when veggies don’t respect their choice to eat meat. So how does this translate into my grey area? Everyone has their own opinions, so there will never be a right or wrong. But of course I’m always learning new things (it’s only been almost eight months since I decided to go vegetarian) and there’s definitely huge grey areas. Everyone has to live with themselves at the end of the day. Apparently I gave up my rights to being a southerner since I didn’t eat fried chicken = ) I try and stick to everything vegetarian, as much as possible.

I just say I have vegetarian tendencies…I lost a taste for meat my junior year in college but I do eat it…but sometimes I’ll go for days not eating it. I never use animal-based broth at home but if there is an asparagus soup at a restaurant, I’ll eat it, chicken broth or not. Dad’s Catholic friend went ahead and ordered a hamburger.

I know someone who is vegetarian, though now she’s decided to try veganism, at least for a while. But I’ll get a snide comment sometimes when I order a big juicy steak. I don’t remember what it was like in America, but in Australia many companies DO put when their wine, cider, beer, etc. since I’ve become vegan, but I still have non-vegan items from before I made this change in my lifestyle and still wear them because it is not economically feasible or reasonable for me to replace them.

My philosophy has always been “do the best you can.” Right now, my best is not eating meat or milk, but making exceptions for spicy tuna rolls and cheese.

You can make a ton of amazing vegan marshmallows with aquafaba, the liquid from a can of chickpeas (other beans work as well, but I prefer the mild flavor and color of white beans for this type of treat.)

I know there are some people out there who became model vegans overnight, but I think a lot of us struggle to eat in a more responsible way. That’s so weird because eating cheese makes me feel like crap! Happy people just don’t kill their husbands!”. Honestly you could drive yourself mad though. But maybe commercially they aren’t as careful? I raise/grow as much of my own food as possible and get my meat through local sources or butchering animals that are raised by me or my family.
