Earlier this month I decided to become a vegan. Shocked? So was Mark. It all started on a Monday morning when Mark had to go to the office downtown for a couple of hours, so I decided to go with him so we could go to Pike Place Market afterwards. Since I had a couple of hours I went to Barns & Noble to pick up the sequal to The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo. As I passed the Best Seller section an odd book caught my attention:Skinny Bitches. Reading the title made me laugh so I picked it up and browsed. Right away I noticed something that drew my attention. I didn’t notice it was a book promoting veganism, but rather, I noticed there was a heavy amount of cussing–I liked it. Before I knew it I had read the entire book and had simultaneously made my decision to leave my meat-eating past behind. When Mark picked me up, I excitedly told him of the exciting news. He was not too happy. Actually, I’m pretty sure he was a bit scared.
When I got home a few hours later I went to http://www.goveg.com and forced myself to watch those horrible videos. I will never eat meat again. Milk, eggs, and cheese, on the other hand, I cannot live without, yet. So, veganism will have to wait.
Although most recipes I make will be vegetarian (with the exception of some seafood recipes), I will post alternatives for those of you who want to add a little cruel protein in your dish 🙂
