I was born, raised, and continue to live in the midwestern United States.
I adopted a vegetarian diet in my mid-30s. (Why? Long story short: I finally found a spiritual path that felt like home [Buddhism] – and one of the primary ethical guidelines of this path involves non-harming other living beings. So, no killing animals = vegetarian.)
I converted to full-on veganism in 2013. (Why? Long story short: During a road trip, I drove past two different semi trucks that were packed tall and deep with livestock. [Specifically chickens and pigs.] I saw first-hand how miserable and cruel this treatment was – and I could no longer pretend that consuming animal products was any more humane than eating their flesh. So, no eating animal products = veganism.)
I’m married. My husband isn’t vegan. It’s okay. It’s his choice/life/path.
I’m a mama to two dogs. (Toy poodles.) They are not vegan. It’s okay. They are dogs. They need meat to be healthy.
I work for a Fortune 500 business. This isn’t intended to impress anyone, only to illustrate that any person can live a vegan lifestyle if they choose to do so, regardless of their profession. [In other words, veganism isn’t only for hippies.]
I started this blog because I wanted a place to document vegan recipes that are tasty, easy, and fast. Recipes I have tried and enjoyed. Recipes I will likely want to make again, and/or share with others. Like you.
You’re welcome. 🙂
