I was perusing an awesome Vegan cookbook I had been given for Christmas last night and couldn’t help but think a) how pretty all of the food looked and b) how much I admire vegans. As an animal lover, how could I not adore all of the people on this planet who don’t actually eat any of the them?
I’ve tried to go vegan countless times before but, since I’m a little anemic, find it super challenging to eat a totally plant based diet for more than a few months. As I was thinking about this dilemma, I decided to check my Facebook feed for the umpteenth time (as any self respecting social media addict would do) and what did I stumble on?
I admit I took this as a sign from the Universe that I needed to do this vegan challenge just like Beyoncé had done. I realize that she and Jay Z did this a couple of years ago but they’re still on the vegan bandwagon with a new 22 day home delivery service that is totally plant based. And, hey, there’s nothing wrong with being a couple of years late to a challenge, right?
So, not only will I be looking at the pretty pictures in my Oh She Glows cookbook, I’ll be sampling quite a few of the recipes for the next 22 days and chronicling my faves here.
Stay tuned for the successes, failures and everything in between as I journey along the Vegan Challenge.
