Reading the first chapter was heart wrenching and infuriating. I though that by being a vegetarian I was doing all good for the animals. For about four days now, I have not been able to put this book down! and I have been sharing every bit of information that I have learned with my family. I have now been making day to day changes in my life, making vegan choices with my foods. I read about people who transition from vegetarianism to veganism, their advice is to take it one day at a time. I want to make this New Year about a transition to becoming vegan, however long it takes I will be sure to make the best choices I can.
So I would like to re-introduce my blog, as I will be cooking a lot more vegan meals that I will be sharing here. My sister and I have been excited about starting our vegan baking too! and I am even more excited to be sharing that with you guys. To expand a little bit more, I want to start writing about earth friendly and green products that serve for your home as well as body and mind.
If anybody has any suggestions and/or would like to share anything of this topic in particular PLEASE feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org --I am looking forward to meeting new people in the Vegan community and am excited and eager to learn new things and recipes!
Now here is my very first Vegan Recipe!
