          “Vegan food is easy.”
          Requires a tray of tools (hammer and screw driver included).

                  You know, veganism is weird. Not eating meat is one thing, but, like, this is essentially cut veg and fruit, plated in a pretty way. Is this really what passes for meatless food? I mean, the presence of meat cannot make this big of a difference, between well-constructed dishes that are cooked boiled and whatnot, and chopped veg/fruit....

                    Aesthetically pleasing but does it seem appetising to anyone? I'm vegan but I never found the appeal in raw food

                            Carla isn’t anxious at all, though she stands back to back with Natalie Portman. Meanwhile, Natalie be like:
                            - Are you a righty or a leftie?
                            - Left... I mean, rightie!

                                  Here in the Philippines, we just use the back of chef knife to crack the coconut in half and scrape the meat with spoon or melon baller

                                    WOW! talk about making things more difficult. Interesting way of opening the coconut. So many tools. took I need only a machete or a big knife, knock it few times and done in less than 1 minute.

                                              If you burn the coconut it's easier to take the flesh out ...

                                                                "...we do this quickly. because people don't think you can have quick delicious vegan food with intact limbs and body parts"
                                                                I think that when people say quick, they never think of a rush hour kind of quick, but quick as in making a sandwich kind of quick with few ingredients, or maybe basic salads in non-rush hour kind of way.

                                                                Plus, Natalie doesn't look like she's aged since Star Wars...
