    My sister is a vegan

    and she recently stayed with me for the weekend. I stick to mostly an organic and vegetarian diet, although I love oysters. I've tried to go vegan and I lasted a good five months. I've decided on giving it another shot. Oh... but I will miss cheese very much! Let's see how long...

    If Heaven Existed, This Would Be It

    I'm so glad the only store I can get these scrumptous Vegan Smores is about 15 miles away. I only get out that way every few weeks or so. But everytime I'm there, I've got to get a Sweet and Sara Peanut Butter Smore. They are high in calories, but let me tell you, they are worth...

    Slowly But Surely

    I am working my way towards a vegan lifestyle. I have only been a vegetarian for a little over a year, but I always knew vegan was the ultimate goal. I just have to get rid of all the strictly vegetarian foods in the house (I refuse to just throw them out as it's a waste of money...

    that I was trying to go Vegan. I have been off all meat products, eggs fish and dairy except for a few squares of chocolate for 5 days now. It's going great. I do seem to be hungry today but I'm thinking it' more psychological than physiological! I'm reading a lot about Raw Food...
