Need your Feedback!

As I recently passed the one year mark of Offroad Vegan, I’d like to get some feedback from my readers about future content.  What would you like to see?

Trail Recipe: Spaghetti with Meatish Sauce

You’d be amazed how many calories you burn when wheeling.  Yes, you are sitting down quite a bit.  However, you are constantly climbing in and out of your Jeep to scout obstacles, running ahead for that photo, scrambling up hills with winch lines, etc etc.

So it is important to eat well.

On the Rubicon trail earlier this month, I decided to use some Beyond Meat Beefy Crumbles and Field Roast Italian sausages to whip up a sauce so meaty, it would make Ted Nugent blush (disclaimer: He’s an a$$h*#! and I can’t stand him).

Anyway, even though this is a simple recipe, it bears writing as it is super easy, delicious, and will be the envy of your camp.  Trust me.

A Day In The Life Of Something I Know Nothing About: Vegans

I was recently interviewed for a POV on veganism for the BDC blog!

The Big Dick Chronicles

Let’s talk about meat. No, not that. You guys think all I write about is sex, but that’s not true. Those are just the only articles you read. Don’t argue with me; I read the stats.

I’m talking about food meat.

For our fourth installment of the “Things I Know Nothing About” series, I decided to stretch my comfort zone a bit and explore something that I might fundamentally disagree with.

So I thought about some of the things I am passionate about. I’m passionate about sex and I am passionate about meat. (NO! Not that meat. Really you guys, stop it)

So, in my efforts to expand my horizons and open my mind to…

My post regarding veganism and the “man card” was incredibly popular.

And, the feedback was amazing.  I realized that there are actually so many vegans and vegetarians out there whom are already breaking the stereotypes.

So, we want to see your mancards and womancards (yes, such a thing exists)!

Eating Vegan and the Processed Food Dilemma

As vegans, we have all lived on some deserted islands.  We have all defended our protein intakes.  And, we have spoken (or perhaps marched) on behalf of the animals.

But of all the curves the omni crowd throws at me, the one I struggle with the most is the topic of processed foods.

I am what I like to call a “meaty vegan.”  I grew up in the woods of New England, eating wholesome foods like ham steaks, meatloaf, and spaghetti sauce “flavored with meat.”  So personally I enjoy the meat analogs that allow me to bridge the gap between my personal heritage and veganism.

I am a meaty vegan, and this is my food.

But that also comes with it’s own set of concerns, mostly around the fact that most of this food is highly processed and contains a lot of oil, salt, and sugars.

So what is this meaty vegan to do?
