I’m Not a Vegetarian—But These Meatless Recipes Are Insanely Good

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: I love chicken nuggets. They have been a huge constant in my life for as long as I can remember. While my palate has changed over time, my affinity for chicken nuggets has persevered and proven to be a bit of a personality trait.

So when I admit, “I don’t think I could ever be a vegetarian,” the sole reason is that I’m not yet willing to part with who I am (which happens to be 23 percent chicken nugget). That being said, I’m not sleeping on how tasty eating vegetarian can be.
