I learned last night that just a few years ago, I was such a piece of shit that I completely ruled out whole types of food "masquerading" as other foods (like lentil patties and other things that round really tasty), but I can't remember it, and now I hate that guy! I've missed out on some really good recipes over the years because of it!

It's never too late to stop being a piece of shit, but you can't get back all the things you lost during the time you we're shitty.

@Alamantus it's okay to grow as a person.

I would say that to a certain extent you weren't wrong. Lentilburger is not a hamburger and isn't going to taste like one, but can be good and enjoyable in it's own right. A lot of the foods like that are supposed to match a texture, not a flavor.

Zucchini noodles are another one. They have an al dente feel, but aren't gonna taste like pasta.


I used to make fun of vegetarians and say stupid shit like "for every animal you don't eat, I'll eat two" and now I've been vegan for years.

Improving as a person is good. 🙃
