I have always eaten healthy. I won’t lie and say I have never eaten processed food. I’m a mom and we get bust sometimes, but we don’t eat fast food. Yes, I have made boxed macaroni and cheese, are we dead? no. We are very much alive and well.
I love to cook and I love food. Sometimes though simple comfort food just hits the spot. Tonight we ate simply. We ate vegan(almost)! I’m a rebel right? Vegan bread, cheese and salad dressing. The only non vegan item was butter. However, in keeping with my good quality food, my butter of choice is Kellygold pure Irish butter. My kids actually prefer the vegan cheese, they say it’s creamier. They also love sprouted 7 grain bread. I feel I’m doing something right. So see, it is possible to eat simple and eat vegan.
Welcome to my transformation. I started this blog to share my journey of moving from a pretty healthy meat eater to a non meat eater. Vegan Rebel you ask? Yup, I am a rebel by nature; I don’t follow rules very well. I am not opposed to eating meat, I just prefer not to. I am a rebel because where I am transitioning to a vegan lifestyle for the most part, this girl can not give up butter, chocolate or honey. Nope, I can not. Oh, I also have tried every vegan alternative to coffee creamer and half and half just can’t be beat. So I am what you would call “mostly vegan”. I don’t consider myself vegetarian because I don’t do eggs, or dairy except for that tablespoon of cream in my coffee.
I plan on posting tips and ideas for making life healthier and happier. I am not perfect and am learning new things daily. I am a mom, a student, a bad ass girl who loves adventure and food.
