On Sunday, we went with my in-laws, sister-in-law, her husband, two nephews, and baby niece to Christmas on Peachtree – a new Christmas attraction in the old Macy’s building in Downtown Atlanta. I wish I had photos because it was really cute watching the kids run around and get SO EXCITED about Christmas.
Well, while we were there, my sister-in-law was talking about how her son V. won’t eat any milk product and doesn’t seem to like meat very much either. “We eat a lot of tofu in our house now,” she said. She buys a lot of vegan products for him at home, and he also loved these vegan cupcakes I made at our housewarming this summer.
My sister-in-law purchased some hot dogs and chicken fingers for the boys to eat while we were at X-mas on Peachtree. L – the older nephew – gobbled up all the food. But V. only ate the hot dog bun, and ate only the breading off the chicken fingers. This kid really has no interest in eating meat.
It made me think – are we all just inherently vegan? Do we have to acquire a taste for animal products? It just shows how addicting some foods really are, and how we really don’t need to eat animal products to survive and thrive.
