What is vegan? What does it mean to identify as vegan? What is plant-based? How do you get enough protein? Haven’t humans always eaten meat? Is it really wrong to eat an animal if it was raised humanely? What about eggs? Is it even possible to give up cheese!? What about holidays? Do you have to eat salad every day? What about eating out? Who cares, anyway?
These are just a few of the questions I asked when I decided to become vegan. These are a few of the questions everyone asks when they decide to become vegan. Or if they meet a vegan, or hear about a vegan, or even think about vegans. They all have answers, of course. But the most important question of all is, “What about the food?” I’ll be honest, I’m not that great of a cook. I’ve almost taken fingers off chopping onions, and my idea of a fancy home cooked meal is spaghetti with sauce (from a jar). But if you can’t cook and you decide to be vegan, you might starve to death! I’ve been doing this for over a year now, and I’m happy to say I’ve gotten a bit better at making dinner.
This is a space to document all the fun foods I’m learning how to make. I have lots of vegan cookbooks and will be following their recipes and writing reviews on how easy the recipe is to make and how yummy it is. Sometimes I might talk about life, ethical vegan issues, and fun events/activities.
Vegan: a person who does not eat or use animal products.
Whimsy: playfully quaint or fanciful behavior or humor.
Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.
Eat rice, have faith in women. This is my philosophy in life and food.
