My Vegan Life

Hello!  What is new with you?  Things have been pretty busy right now at school and with Little I.  I am still trying to get the hang of working full time and being a full time mom.  Little I will be 2 in December, you would have thought I would have figured it out by now right?!

Anyways, one new thing with me is that I have been a vegan for a month officially!  I  am so excited about being a vegan that I wanted to share it with you!  It has changed my life for the better and I feel so much healthier for eating "clean."  I know this is mainly an art blog but this blog is also a blog about my life.  Turning vegan is a huge part of my life now so I thought I would share with you my experience.  I am a newbie vegan (person who eats NO animal products including dairy and eggs) and I have even given up processed foods (huge deal for me!)  I literally went from being  a microwave dinner freak (think lean cuisines for every meal) to actually cooking from scratch all of my meals!

One of the main reasons I wanted to try the vegan lifestyle was that I read some articles about the China Study and also my best friend has been a vegan for many years and she always seems to have this amazing healthy glow to her!  I am a huge animal fan and have always loved veggies and fruits so I thought "Why not?"  Luckily there is a WEALTH of information out there for new vegans like myself that helped ease me into eating animal-product free!

So be prepared in future posts to see some fun vegan recipes as I attempt to create easy, quick vegan meals!

Vegetables rule my life now!
Great fall veggies from the farmer's market!
Tofu French fries...yep...these are actually awesome!
Quinoa, spinach, mushrooms and zucchini
Sweet potato and white bean patties with mushrooms and avocado.  That is actually salt on top of my sweet potatoes!

Wow! Vegan... I was vegan in my early 20's and I still love tofu and tempeh.

I never thought I would become vegan but it has been a great change so far!
