(Vegan) (gluten-free) waffle and (tofu) nuggets at Seed in New OrleansBeing vegan is such a sacrifice, especially here in New Orleans.  It’s soooo hard to give up cheese, and ice cream.  What am I supposed to do when I crave a burger?  And what about chicken n waffles? I’ll never know what they taste like!!

Oh, wait.
