A review of some of the (past) vegetarian and (now) exclusively vegan meals I've had while traveling around the country as a Charter Pilot.

Practical Vegetarian? Really? Seriously? Here's my response to the article:
Look, when I ate 99% of my meals as a vegan but occasionally ate fish or seafood ... 4 times a year perhaps, I was chastised by vegans for using that moniker.
As my travels take me to places where I often cannot make other arrangement I often have to make "do." You either decide to be a vegetarian or vegan or you decide your culinary choices depend more on what's available. I've from time to time taken the turkey off the bread and had a piece of wilted lettuce sandwich. I wasn't happy about the turkey touching the bread but I wouldn't eat the turkey.
If you're just eating "practically" you really haven't made any kind of commitment to vegetarianism but you're definitely eating a better diet for yourself, the planet and the animals.
If your friend made you something with dairy after a 10 year absence and you had lactose intolerance would you eat it to be "nice?"
From a practical standpoint fast food is really really practical but even as a former carnivore there came a time when I realized that it was no more than junk and I would go out of my way to find something different. You have to be willing, when things aren't convenient or *practical* to put in the effort and stick with your convictions.
Thought provoking post though.
I think you'll find following my travels from a culinary standpoint somewhat amusing.
