My name is Alex and I’m a 30 year old vegan. I live in a small city along the Hudson River in New York state with my husband Phil and our dog Sophie May Toto Guacamole, and yes, that is really her name.
Becoming a vegan was a huge life changer! I love it! We chose to go vegan for health reasons. For me, it was to avoid “hereditary problems” that I’ve been told I’d have to deal with. Over time, it’s not just about my health, but I do it for the animals and our planet.
I’m out to prove that eating vegan isn’t scary! Dishes that you love can still be made, but in a healthier way! Simple switches like adding vegetables to tacos instead of meat or using avocado in place of butter when baking. Anything can be substituted it’s just a matter of thinking outside the box and expanding your culinary horizons.
There are many reasons to go vegan and whatever your reason, I hope I can be helpful to you on your journey. Even if it’s just to get you to try a new recipe!
