Nah. The point is, it's not
meat. Finding a cruelty-free substitute for something you like shouldn't be frowned upon. The way I see it, as long as no animals were harmed and it's tasty, why not eat it on occasion, for variety. For people with a firm conviction to be vegan, there's no reason to shy away seitan or other meat analogues.But
, if it stank and had veins and skin like real meat does, I'd freak out. It doesn't. It's not that real. So...nomnomnom.
