    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...

    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 There's A Will, There's A Way!

    Trying To Go Vegan, Too!

    I'm trying to go vegan -- went cold turkey off meat, dairy, eggs, fish almost 3 weeks ago and feel GREAT. Eating tons of raw veggies, hummus, beans, tofu, fruit and loving it. Running into bumps, though. Everything is fine when I cook -- my husband will eat the vegan chili...

    I started the 1 month vegan challenge on Monday

    so today was my sixth day. It hasn't been too bad because a lot of tasty food (most crisps, pasta, poppadoms) are suitable for vegans. I bought mint-flavoured vegan chocolate which was delicious! I'm doing it for the animals more than anything else as, after watching some...

    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...
