Today's Mofo prompt is what well known person of our choice would eat if they were a vegan. I knew from the jump who my well known person would be! Cenk Uygur host of the Young Turks on YouTube. I absolutely love The Young Turks, they cover stories that you definitely do not hear about on mainstream media, and they kept me sane when I was living in Fox News loving Erie PA. And when I had certain conservative family members attempt to make me feel bad for my opinions, I needed to see that I wasn't dumb, or alone in my thoughts.
Cenk Uygur is that person you want with you when people are trashing your beliefs. He is an attorney who practiced in Washington D.C. and New York, so no one can try to throw legal speak at him and confuse him, he also used to be a conservative republican, so he is well versed in their mind-set. You don't very often meet adults who have changed like that. Most people I meet tend to stick with what they know, what they were taught, and never question any other way of thinking. So, he's extremely intelligent, and he is extremely passionate, and he is definitely a warrior. He is someone that I greatly admire, and truth be told, I'm kind of madly in love with him. I am drawn to his passion, and strength and intelligence, and I love people who speak spontaneously, from the heart and refuse to sell out, or change who they are.
So, enough about my schoolgirl crush, let's move onto vegan food. Cenk is someone who I believe would easily become a vegan if he learned enough about what really goes on in the farming industry. He loathes greed and cruelty, and he is a warrior for the underdog, so it makes more sense for him to be vegan than not. I hear him talk about In and Out burgers, and ice cream and such. I know he's a runner, and goes to the gym, so I think he eats healthy most of the time, but has In and Out burgers and nutty buddies and ice cream for treats. I suspect he would eat that way more often if it were healthy! Ha. So, I decided to make a vegan cheeseburger with special sauce, and fries to show that vegans can chow down on some grease and junk too!

I will leave you today with a beautiful shot of Spada Lake in Snohomish County, not too far away from Seattle. Breathing in car fumes every day, and living in a concrete jungle really makes you appreciate nature.
