    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...
