I’m a whole food, plant based vegan, I gave up eating dead animal flesh or foods made from the lactation fluids of livestock about 5 years ago. I choose to eat this way because I’m concerned about health, the environment, and for ethical reasons. I abhor cruelty, animal or otherwise. I’m not perfect and occasionally I fall off the wagon, but I always climb back on and start over. I’m pretty much convinced that doing good for yourself and others is the path to happiness. This blog will be primarily about food. What I like to eat or like to try. with that in mind the recipes I post will lean towards simple, whole food, plant based food with little oil or fat, and ingredients that you can easily find. None of my recipes require flower petals from the Kalahari or other such nonsense. I also am wary of processed foods such as vegan meat and cheese. I haven’t always felt this way and past recipes may reveal that but I feel that way now And I always strive to do better. Oh, also, I don’t have much tolerance for preachy, loudmouthed vegan fundamentalists.
My wife, Merre and I live full time on the road in an RV. That shapes the minimalist approach I sometimes favor. Be kind to all living creatures. please.
