Ciao, my name is Amy. I am a new vegetarian and still feeling my way. I am delighted to say I don't miss meat, but I still find myself wondering what to make sometimes. I chose to go vegetarian because of a friend talking me into it and a doctore reccommending I try it because of my chronic and very painful headaches. I am headache free, I am now learning and toying with the idea of a vegan lifestyle and researching it. I will be picking up Alicia's book this weekend. I can't wait to see where this journey takes me!
