I think there’s space between “eat only meals of Michelin-star quality” and “frequently eat at fast-food chains or cook from low-quality meat”. In particular, I believe myself to live in that space; I cook my own meals, am competent but not at Michelin-star level, and never eat at fast-food joints.
I don’t know how common this is, but I doubt I’m the only one.
Also, I claim the following is a coherent position and suspect that quite a few hold it: “It may well be true that in some sense the best vegan pseudomeat is of higher quality than most fast food burgers. However, it happens that I like fast food burgers, or at least some of them, and vegan pseudomeat burgers are less appealing to me whatever ‘quality’ they are credibly alleged to have in the abstract.”
(Having said all of which, I am pretty sure all of us have sub-delicious meals fairly frequently, sometimes even by choice, and I’ve had delicious vegan food as well as delicious carnivore food, and I think “animal suffering is a big enough deal to outweigh my preference for delicious food” is a perfectly reasonable position that doesn’t merit mockery.)
