I live in the Southern US (what most refer to as the “Bible Belt”), and I’ve been vegetarian since August 2007. I decided to eliminate meat, fish, foul (and mostly all dairy products) from my diet when I discovered the devastating and disgusting truths about factory farming and what that means for both the animals and humans involved, our health (physical and spiritual), and the environment. Once I discovered the truth, I knew it would change my life forever. It’s a lifestyle I’ve chosen for the rest of my life– a long, beautiful, rewarding, yet sometimes lonely path from which I’ll never look back.
I am currently working on a cookbook of southern (vegan) recipes and will post some of them here, so feel free to try them out and give me feedback! You will also find reviews of veg products here. If you want me to review a product, please let me know! I also offer tips for debunking myths about the veg lifestyle; tips for traveling; and everyday musings about human nature, compassion, and our connection to animals.
