Ready or not, here goes VEGAN!

So Mike and I are going to do a vegan diet until September...

This should be interesting... actually, I went to the store yesterday and already felt healthier! ;)

I'm sure most of you already know what a vegan is, but incase you don't, basically a vegan doesn't eat any animal byproduct- including meat, milk, eggs, cheese, etc. Some vegans don't even eat honey... but that's just crazy. I LOVE cheese so this will be an adventure- a whole new world has been opened up to me about vegan cheese, which seems weird, but it'll have to do for now.

We aren't going vegan because we think animals need equal rights or anything, although I do care how they are treated, but that's not our reason (don't worry, you won't see us protesting the local KFC anytime soon). Pretty much we just want a little challenge and to eat healthier. I'm curious how I'll feel- if I'll have more energy, better skin, sleep better, etc. So over the next month and a half, I'll try to post some of the recipes I make for us.

I am a little apprehensive about the possibilities of going out to eat with friends, or having friends invite us over for dinner... so just know that we still do want to go out to eat with you (just might have to stick to a salad or something) and we do still want to come over, we just might not eat much, or you can come over to our place for dinner! We won't be hermits/snobs/those crazy diet people I promise!

If you are a vegan and have any recipes to share, please do!

vegan for now,


  1. Hi Lisa! That's so awesome you guys are trying out vegan. I had to share our favorite "cheese" sauce. I've tried many and my husband and I LOVE this one:
    Great on baked potatoes, nachos, etc. I also roast potato rounds to dunk in it - SO GOOD!!
    Thanks for the comment on my blog - have fun with your vegan try-outs! ;) Wishing you all the best.
