    Have you ever tried vegan food?  What did you think?

    I've had good vegan food and bad vegan food. Eating straight tempeh was not that great, but I've also had great vegan dishes and could eat vegan all the time. I would miss meat and cheese. Sure, there are substitutes, but it can get expensive.

    Rabbit food... yum, yum.  Tastes good and is good for you too.  Seriously, when I think of vegan I think of produce and nothing fancy.

    I have tried it and it was good! It all depends on who prepares it! I have also tried raw vegan food and it was good as well... I'm not a vegan... yet!

    A lot of people eat vegan food all the time without even realizing it - it's not about eating special health food or just greens, per se, it's just about the absence of all meat, dairy, and eggs.

    Vegan food, like all food, can be absolutely delicious or absolutely wretch-inducing depending on quality, freshness, the way in which it is prepared, the way in which it is presented, and the balance in which it is eaten (e.g. just carbs all the time is going to make one sick- balanced meals are a must).

    In short, we've all had vegan food before and loved it; we may have not realized it.  It's not fair to anchor one's experience with a dried out vegan "cookie" with all vegan food.  That's just marketing.

    I really like these answers.  I also enjoy vegan food and do my best to reduce animal products in my diet for nutritional reasons (but not entirely eliminated).

    I agree Simone that it depends on preparation and ingredients to make or break a vegan meal.

    Being a vegan I think that vegetables are very good for staying healthy.

    I agree with Simone - everybody has eaten vegan food before, without realising it. It just means that your food doesn't contain any animal related foods, such as meat, dairy, egg or honey. I am constantly trying to work towards a better, healthier and more environment friendly nutrition - eating vegan as much as possible becomes a natural part of it, as consuming too much meat and dairy products is unhealthy and a serious problem when it comes to environmental questions... I have experienced that the more vegan you eat the more your taste adapts to the different flavours and the less you actually enjoy the taste of dairy or meat. When you hardly consume milk you usually notice a bad after taste in your throat after drinking a glass of milk or you can start feeling nauseous when you smell certain meats - for example pig. I think this shows that how we experience taste, or better GOOD taste, depends largely on our food habbits. Vegan food can be utterly delicious when prepared well, or a never-again-experience when prepared badly. But if you keep consuming wholesome and well prepared vegan food for a while you will experience that you start prefering eating vegan. And noone is forcing you to go so extreme - if there are certain tastes or foods you just can't get in a vegan meal you can still make your exceptions. Like that you will never really miss anything in your everyday nutrition - if you choose it to be vegan.

    Vegan food is food. In my group of vegan friends, that means fresh, organic if possible, and delicious.

    I have one friend who is a vegan personal chef. Omnivores eat her food, and don't really realize it's vegan. She's catered parties for her clients, and makes amazing, delicious food. Nobody misses the meat or dairy!

    Now, if you're talking about the stuff on grocery store shelves that is being marketed to vegans---that stuff, for the most part, is not food. It's the same overly processed junk that big corporations produce for non-vegans. There are a few tasty, healthy options there, but you really have to read labels.
