Dear vegan food,

Thank you. For nearly five years of beautiful, yummy, compassionate bliss. For always satisfying every single taste bud. For keeping my body energized and strong. For enduring the first year of trial and error as I learned how to cook you. For being patient as I tasted different kinds of you over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again until I realized I liked you. All of you. For being more delicious, more fulfilling, more comforting than any animal-based food I've ever had. For not purposely harming a single living being in the making of you. For being healthy (most of you). For always being there, in my kitchen, no matter what kind of day I've had. For loving me back by making my body smile, my heart stay open, and my mind remain at peace. I love you and will continue eating you - and only you - for as long as I can eat. That's a promise.
Love,

Lindsay

I needed to read this right now as I'm struggling to get started with my transition from vegetarian to vegan.

You can do it Melissa! Just stay committed and remind yourself every day why you're transitioning over to vegan! And if you need any recommendations on what to read or watch, feel free to ask on the KMIV Facebook page!

Hi Lindsey, I'm transiting from pesceetarian to vegan. I've made it 3 months vegetarian and have now started cutting dairy and eggs from my diet (I decided to give myself a year to fully transition... That way I could do it in stages). I would love any book suggestions that you might have, I'll be sure to look for you on facebook! I just founnd this blog, so I'll be scrolling back to read the archives. Thanks!

Hey Elizabeth! First of all, congrats on making such a brave, beautiful chance in your life! Great books include: Skinny Bitch, The Kind Diet, Sarah Kramer cookbooks (How It All Vegan), the movie Forks Over Knives and the cookbooks, Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows, and then I also have a "THREE STEPS" page on my blog with more resources. Thanks for your support and keep it up! xo
