More About Me

Reasons why I prefer to eat vegetarian or vegan:
It's time for me to align my lifestyle with my core values. I don't want to make excuses about how I can't find vegan products, or make exceptions to being consistently vegan whenever possible. I want to help bust the myth, to myself and others, that it's difficult to be vegan. I want to live the most cruelty-free life I can, continuously making conscious decisions that consider my health, the public health, environmental health, and the ethical, responsible, humane treatment of other animals. As Jonathan Safran Foer quotes in his book, Eating Animals, as consumers, we are all "farmers by proxy" every time we buy food or put it in our mouths. What kind of farmer would you want to be? What kind of ethic do you want to propagate? Be honest with yourself and then live up to that ethic.

See above.

Here are some places I've been that I liked... and places that I would like to visit one day:
Athens, GA, home of The Grit restaurant, possibly my favorite vegetarian restaurant of all time. Costa Rica, where I honeymooned for 2 weeks with my husband and was easily able to maintain a vegan diet the whole time, even on the coast where seafood dominates.

Some of my favorite veg*n foods include:
Vegan processed foods: Amy's Roasted Vegetable Pizza No Cheese (Kroger) Amy's Asian Noodle Stir Fry (Kroger) Amy's Indian Samosa Wrap (Kroger) LightLife Gimme Lean Ground Sausage Style veggie protein (Kroger) LightLife Smart Deli Baked Ham Style veggie protein slices (Kroger) Yves if You Please Meatless Pepperoni (Kroger) Yves if You Please Meatless Deli Salami (Kroger) Odwalla Original Bar Superfood "energy bar" (REI) Ling Ling Mini Spring Rolls Vegetable (Kroger) Ling Ling Potstickers Vegetable Dumplings (Kroger) Road's End Organics vegan Shells and Chreese mix (Cosmo's Vegan Shoppe) Gardenburger Veggie Medley veggie burgers (Kroger) Gardenburger Black Bean Chipotle veggie burgers (Kroger)
