One of the most annoying things a vegan can hear is how once they smell meat cooking they’ll turn into meat eaters again. I remember quite vividly when I went vegan I was in a mall’s food court and I smelt something so foul and rotten, like body odor and sour milk. My stomach turned and I wondered what was rotting at the pizza place I was standing next to. It took me a second to finally recognize the smell. It was Parmesan cheese. I used to love parm but that showed how quickly my sense of smell and taste had changed. The smell of cooking meat is the same. The once tantalizing summer scent of a bar-b-que now spoils my enjoyment of the warm day.
