I am about to celebrate my 6 year anniversary of no meat/animal product cooking. My goal everyday is to be a 100% dietary vegan. I live in the Cleveland, Ohio area, the least sunny spot in the US four months of the year. I enjoy cooking and spending time with my family. I am quite ill with several auto-immune diseases, a blood disorder and Mitochondrial Disease. This severely restricts my energy level. I can't do vigorous exercise anymore but I need to keep moving even if it is at a snails pace. I love to try new recipes and cook several times a week in bulk amounts so I don't have to cook as often. I eat very low fat and healthy whole foods: tons of veggies, legumes, whole grains and whole fruits. I do make desserts from time to time... some days when I feel particularly low... I eat dessert twice....LOL Over the past 3 1/2 years I have re-learned how to cook and I love my new recipes. I eat well and am happy that my diet works for me.

    Thanks for your comment. It always surprises me when people think my gs is my child. I guess I have good genes.

    My oldest is 25 and Vegan 100% of the time. My 2nd is mostly Vegan except when she's out at restaurants or people's homes. My younger three are Vegan at home and flexitarian away from home but they all prefer Vegan meals.

    I've been Vegan since 1977, long before I had any children, so they were born into the eating habits and I am really thankful for that.

    Keep up the great work!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. Skipping the pizza and holding out for a healthy delicious night out with my husband instead was totally worth it. Thanks for your advice and support on both counts!
