In September 2014, I made an extraordinary lifestyle choice that gifts me with a two-fold return on a daily basis: improved personal- and social welfare. I became a vegan. I have to admit that this switch was not particularly challenging for me because I never was a big meat eater and have kept a mostly balanced, nutrient-rich diet since my teens. Nevertheless, the transition was at times somewhat difficult to bear, especially since I am huge sushi fan. Kappa maki simply can’t give shake maki a run for its money, unless you know some incredible sushi chef, who can convince me of the contrary.
