I've been vegan since February of 2005, and I was vegetarian for almost a year before that. I love cooking vegan food. People always ask me, "What do you eat?" or, "Doesn't being vegan make it harder to cook?" Nope! In fact, I've found that going vegan opened up a whole new world of cooking for me. I've tried ingredients I otherwise never would have heard of, and found vegan products that are even better than their non-vegan counterparts. I love creating new dishes and recipezaar has been a wealth of inspiration.
