13 photos of vegan food that are carnivore-worthy

Let's admit it: Vegans sometimes get a bad rap. With their glowing skin, affinity for acai bowls and generally positive attitudes, these health nuts make us feel bad about the double-bacon cheeseburger we inhaled on our last cheat day. And on those rare occasions when we do try to be healthy, ordering that tasteless zucchini pasta with meatless balls and nutritional yeast, we rue the days we let those vegans pull us over to the dark side.

However, a quick scroll through Instagram shows that we may just have this all wrong. Although a vegan diet may not be for everyone, there are certainly healthy, glowing individuals out there who have mastered the art of beautiful and crave-worthy vegan cuisine. From creamy "mac'n(o)'cheese" to spicy tofu pad Thai, these Instagrammers are doing this vegan thing right.

So feast your eyes on the colorful and fresh dishes created by these vegan superstars, all the while questioning why you'll never be more like them.

Vegan means it's alright to eat the whole stack, right?

We're confused by how cheesy and creamy this eggplant rollatini looks despite the lack of dairy, but we're definitely not mad about it.

Why hasn't anything we've ever held in our hands looked this good?

Is it just us, or is this a whole lot prettier than regular sushi?

We're starting to think this whole vegan thing might not be so bad after all.
