When I went vegan, I was pretty shocked to learn that the majority of the food I ate was vegan. Not to put any pressure on myself, but just to be clear, I did not find veganism to be a negative thing. I did not think that I was making a mistake in my lifestyle, but I also did not think that I had a problem with food. I just didn’t like what it was doing to my body.
I thought that I was doing the right thing, but then I found that I had become vegan as a way to eat less meat. I figured that if I was going to change my eating habits I should try to adopt the “healthier,” “less processed,” and “better for the environment” diets that were becoming all the rage. But as I was changing my diet I also found that I was also changing my way of thinking.
After reading a lot of blogs I discovered that all my past eating patterns were based on meat. I’d eat a steak, a hamburger, a chicken, whatever. But then I started to realize that I was eating less meat as a way to eat less. I found a few other blogs that were posting about cutting out meat, and then I discovered that most of my favorite restaurants that I had a ton of issues with were vegans. So I went vegan.
I know it’s funny that I’ve now become one of those people who is vegan, but I’ve always thought that if I can’t eat meat, I can’t eat anything. That was the biggest reason why I started this blog, after all.
This might sound a bit hypocritical, but Ive decided that I am not so happy with being vegan that I cant eat a few potatoes. But, that is the way I prefer it. I find that the most flavorful and healthiest meals are usually based on vegetables, so I want to make sure that I actually have good ones prepared at the places I go. And if not, I have a few ways I can make them taste better.
You might be surprised to learn that the majority of the foods that we eat at home can also be made from vegetables. The following are some of my favorite recipes that use vegetables.
When it comes to vegan foods, there are two main types. There are the “gourmet” kind, which is what you’d typically find in the fine dining section of your grocery store. These are typically made from foods that are very healthy and highly flavorful, like, for example, beans. They aren’t always very healthful (they could be better if they were made from peas), but they’re still great.
The other option is to make them from vegetables that will actually give you that “veg-out” effect. These are not necessarily healthy, but they typically taste good and are often the most versatile of the two. I like to use my home as a testing ground for new recipes. I first make a lot of new recipes because it’s very easy to get them wrong. It also gives me the opportunity to try new recipes and see how they compare to the ones I’ve made before.
I like to keep my recipes as close to the original as possible. Ive always been a big fan of experimenting with new recipes for a new recipe at the same time as trying to make my recipes more consistent. The best recipes don’t always end up looking the same after theyve been tweaked, and the worst recipes don’t always end up looking the same after theyve been tweaked.
I like to use my recipes as a way to test my skills as a cook. It gives me the opportunity to try new recipes and see how they compare to the ones Ive made before.
