I have been vegan since 2010. This means refraining from eating any animal products (meat, dairy, eggs). In addition to this I typically avoid processed food, sugar, “junk food,” etc. My diet consists of whole delicious foods from the earth! It absolutely changed my life in the most positive way possible. The benefits far outweigh any inconvenience:

  • Physical: you feel better! You experience fewer illnesses, better digestion, and it will be easier to achieve/maintain a healthy weight. You will also likely achieve better health & longevity in the long term. You will be less likely to develop heart diseases, diabetes, cancer, etc.
  • Environmental: a vegan diet is way better for the environment
  • Ethical: your money is not supporting the inhumane practices of factory farming nor are you responsible for the abuse & death of animals!
  • Emotional: you feel good about what you’re eating…and what you’re not eating! You know you are doing your part to take care of yourself, the animals and the planet!

This site should help you along your journey, whether you are simply looking to add a few vegan recipes to your repertoire or are already an experienced vegan. I make almost everything from scratch, but that can be intimidating at first! If you are just starting out, take it one step at a time!

    Thanks Martha. This site is fantastic! I love your step-by-step approach, advice (very helpful!) and pictures/recipes. My first meal choice this week: the paella! Mmmm….!! Thanks so much.

    quick question: I am often nervous about ordering veggie-burgers when I eat out. Aren’t they made using eggs to bind the ingredients?

      Sometimes yes sometimes no. Sometimes there is dairy as well. You just have to ask! If they say they don’t know, politely ask if they can find out for you. You can also call ahead before you go. Especially since dairy & eggs are allergens they should be able to easily find out for you.

    Since you cooked many of your lovely vegan recipes at our work, I know how amazing your food is, firsthand!! However, it’s now summer time. Can’t you just come live with me this summer and cook for me? This all looks so time consuming…. 🙂
