Why vegan?

I welcomed vegetarianism as young as 8, and have now been vegan for 5 years at the age of 20. Not only am I vegan, however, but working toward a completely zero-waste, earth-oriented lifestyle. It joys me that I can eat healthily and compassionately, and also reduce my impact on the earth. Like any art, cooking vegan dishes has taken some time, adjustment, and exposure. With my family at a loss as to what vegans eat, I learned to cook for myself. I am here to share this passion, and offer delicious and healthy vegan/vegetarian recipes!
