I am currently reading Main Street Vegan - Everything You Need to Know to Eat Healthfully and Live Compassionately in the Real World by Victoria Moran. This book is a great primer for new and aspiring vegans: it offers all the tips and guidance you need as you set out towards a more plant-based diet, helping you make it work while also demonstrating how it's not so difficult after all. Each of the 40 short chapters includes a recipe for a budget-friendly vegan dish (refreshing as some vegan diets make it seem as if you need to reinvent the wheel and take out another mortgage when it comes to transitioning - not the case at all).
Following one of Ms. Moran's terms, I would like to stick with a Vegan at Home / Vegetarian for Now plan. I won't be eating anyone who's ever had a mamma. I'll continue to experiment with plant based recipes and I'll keep my kitchen as vegan as I can. That said, since my children do eat dairy, eggs (and occassionally meat when brought into the home or dining with others), there may be times when I give in to cheese and perhaps dairy/eggs in baked items. However, I can't really envision eating eggs anymore at this point in time. As my conciousness expands, the desire to eat certain things disappates.
I'll be posting more thoughts on Main Street Vegan as I continue reading.
Have a wonderful weekend!
