I don't eat mammal sandwiches, mammal lasagne, mammal burgers or mammal anything anymore if I can do so politely and I'm someplace where there is a food option.
I do eat poultry, probably because chickens are so mean and I eat fish because ... well, I guess they just aren't cuddly enough.
I tried the complete vegetarian thing but when my fingernails started peeling away I knew for me, it wasn't going to be an option.
However my foray into the world of vegetables did leave me with an amazing respect for people who can do it. Especially the vegans.
I stand in awe of the Vegans.
Therefore I was quite happy to see Holy Crap on the top shelf of my local grocery store.
I know that I am probably the last person in the world to try
"The world's most amazing breakfast cereal"
which is vegan and is
"made in paradise
on the Sunshine Coast, British Columbia, Canada".
(Apparently, in B.C., they are only allowed 10 French words for every 200 English words on their cereal boxes because the only French I could find was "la plus incroyable cereale petit dejeuner du monde"."
Holy Crap is made of hemp hearts and all kinds of organic stuff - except wheat. It is wheat free.
It looks very different from my usual Quaker Oats. I guess the little roundish things are the hemp hearts.
And I agree with you completely. How many hemps had to die so that I could try a vegan cereal?
But then there is so little of it in your bowl - you only eat 2 tablespoons of Holy Crap at a time, so one has to assume there are still vast herds of hemps grazing across the B.C. interior at this very moment.
So how did it taste?
You should try it.
