So, I have been a vegetarian (pescatarian) for about 18 years. The grilled cheese, pasta kind of vegetarian. I went vegan in February of this year and things are finally coming together! My face is FINALLY clearing up after a long detox. I am eating healthier than ever before. I feel so happy that my actions are in line with my values and am perfectly giddy about the changes my family is making. My husband and kids are omnivores and although my husband has always supported me, he's always eaten meat. He has commited that if I cook it, he will eat it (and the kids too). I made a yummy black bean, brown rice with marinated tofu last night and my little girl had noodles with Earth Balance and some fruit. He told her last night that "no animals were harmed in the making of her dinner". He has joined my cause, at least part time and I love it. What I may love the most is the abundance of new meals to try. I don't cook and don't like to cook, but try and be vegan without cooking and it's difficult and boring. I am so excited by all of the recipes, thank you to all of you with AMAZING veggie blogs. There are so many things I want to try now. Thank you to Alicia for giving me the kick start to do something that I've pondered for a long, long time. I look forward to years of health. I've inspired friends to go vegan and smile inside at the thought of a shift, a big one, actually coming about! Keep it up!
Yep, I do the same thing as Rekabeka, except my cooking marathon usually happens on Fridays (I work Sundays) and I eat the foods throughout the week. I also use hummus as a main go-to food. And Luna bars-but I only use those when I am out and need something convenient and vegan on hand (no vegan food at my work). I never used to cook but am getting really interested in it, as I love trying new foods and want to be the adventurous vegan and always be trying new things.
