Hi!! I'm a 51 year old Granma of 3 beautiful girls! I have 4 amazing adult children who were raised pretty much on a veggie diet! I taught myself how to cook at 19 with the classic Laurels Kitchen. Ive been vegan on and off for the past..gosh..8 years, tho I admit to falling off the wagon occasionally! But at 51 I dont feel any differant than I did at 20 and I've kept my weight pretty much the same over the years,which I contribute to my veggie diet!!!!!! Im very upbeat and happy and just trying to save the world one clothesline, walk, and veggie meal at a time! hugs!
