I free-falled my way through some of the best vegetarian cuisine I’ve ever had. I had no idea I was falling in love so fast. Simple, pure, and elegant vegetarian food dotted the entirety of the island nation. Tofu, cooked a thousand ways are kissed with some of the cleanest tasting sauces ever made. More kinds of mushrooms than I knew existed cooked in more ways than I knew possible. Some were so close to chicken, I could hear them wake me in the mornings. These vegetables, divinely crisp and fresh, were good enough for mountain gods. I found no shortage of vegetarian cuisine to expand my idea of what it means to “limit” oneself to eating healthy. I have never felt healthier in my life. It was as if a fog had lifted from my core.
