I live in Dresden and like most German cities we have a city magazine that lists daily and monthly theatre, cinema, art etc, events. They also have a special every month, covering a Dresden specific topic. This month it was a special about being vegan and vegetarian in Dresden. At first I thought: “Wow”. Because being vegan in April seven years ago (yay, veganniversary! yay, blog anniversary!) it was indeed not that easy being a vegan in Dresden, at least if you were going to eat out. Of course we already had tons of vegan products available at grocery stores. And there’s always grains, nuts, fruits, and vegetables! The cover article mentions how veganism started in Dresden right after the wall came down. Those vegans were political activists and one of them mentions how you even had to make your own spreads from scratch. Which didn’t matter because they they didn’t mind making everything from scratch. That, by the way is something I have always loved about veganism, too.The ability to make your food or other things from scratch. That’s one reason why I started this blog.
