Hi, I'm Chelle and this is my husband Bill. We live in Northern Califonia. Our family has been Vegans for 8 years now. It's out of necessity for my health since I've been diabetic for 16 years. I also have many food allergies. Eating organic, fresh, low-fat vegan nourishes and heals the body. It has done wonders for my emotional state as well as blood sugar. Our favorite vegan cookbook author is JoAnne Stepaniak. She's amazing at making healthy foods taste rich and decadent. We love to modify unhealthy recipes into vegan yummies, and to make long tedious recipes into quick and easy ones to prepare.
