i went vegan in 1998 and have never looked back! being vegan has lent more shine to my life than any other choice i’ve made. my personal evolution would have been way different had i not chosen to lead a more compassionate lifestyle. i also don’t know if i would’ve learned to enjoy cooking so much! shortly after becoming vegan, i moved to chicago for my job and was traveling 3 weeks out of the month. needless to say, vegan options were not nearly as accessible as they are now, especially in the midwest. so, i learned to cook. not that i hadn’t cooked before, but i felt the need to get more creative. i stocked up on vegan cookbooks & followed the recipes. they were great resources but i found that i learned way more from the fantastic cooks(vegan and not) i encountered in my life. really learning to use spices was a huge food changer for me! these days i am focused more & more on healthier options that are tasty. i have so much more to learn, which is why i love to spend my free time cooking up a storm in my teeny tiny brooklyn kitchen. thanks for checking out my blog…hope to share lots of yummy ideas with you!
shine on, angela
