I swear divine intervention brought me to this book, I was walking through the bookstore and for some reason I decided to walk through the cookbook section, something I rarely do. Glancing through the books, Alicia's book caught my eye, since I had an hour to kill, I thought, why not, she's been vegan for quite somet time, I'll give it a read. One hour into reading it and my once anit-vegan views were quickly changing. I'm still learning new things each day and I am very excited to begin the transition, hopefully with the help of all of you!!
Hello Samantha! You will be surprised to find out how economical it is to eat healthy. My best word of advice for you is to plan your meals and shop accordingly. For example, when you buy fresh fruits and veggies, cut them up right away and have them on hand for snacking, etc...That way you can avoid having to throw out an entire refrigerator drawer or rotting produce (of which, I might add, I have been guilty.) Being a fellow Minnesotan, we're coming into the time of year where farmers markets full of reasonably priced produce are few and far between, but keep in mind that buying frozen fruits for smoothies and such may be more economical when the prices of the fresh stuff rise during the winter months. Have fun exploring and experimenting with recipes! Two of my favorite magazines are Vegetarian Times and VegNews, both are great resources and provide yummy recipes. Good luck with everything!
