When NOT To Cook Low Fat

If you follow my blog, you’ve most likely noticed I try to keep it healthy around here.  I feel better physically and mentally when I do so, and I love to fuel my family with nutritious goodness.  But, there are exceptions, and Veganomicon couldn’t have put it better.  Here are crucial times to go all out.

Would you agree?

  1. Interesting but not sure it’s a vegan sell? article splits life into 2 parts: times to enjoy food and splurge and times when food is a threat – cultures where food is a part of life – eg Japanese, Italian, French live quite happily with low obesity rates following the motto less is more but enjoy what you eat always.

    • Thanks for your comment! You raise a good point. I personally live in a French-Canadian city (Montreal) where food is everything. Although I live a very healthy lifestyle, when I’m having guests over for dinner and it’s a special occasion, I can’t say I worry too much about fat content, I just want to ‘wow’ my guests with delicious veg food. That doesn’t mean we should over indulge, even with French cuisine, portions are relatively small, yet the dishes are rich and satisfying.

  2. I agree with all of those!! Of course you have to have some full-fat goodies for special occasions (my problem is that I want to turn almost every night into a special occasion – I’m working on that!). And I’ve found that super rich, fat-full desserts are a wonderful way to introduce others to a vegan diet. Once in a while, you’ve got to splurge! Celeste 🙂

    • Hey Celeste! Welcome back. 🙂
      I agree, I do have to fight myself some nights, but on special occasions, and with new vegan tasters I must agree that they should have rich and fatty offerings. 🙂
