Question for vegans..

This is honestly something I’ve wondered for as long as I can remember.

Why is it that you want to make your food resemble non vegan food items? Like “chicken nuggets” “hamburgers” and so on. Some vegan places that I’ve eaten at (I love vegan food!) literally have foods called “chickUN nuggets, or egg sandwich (doesn’t actually have an egg on).

Why don’t you want your food to not resemble what you’re standing for?
