I often get asked ‘what can I cook for meat-eaters and vegetarians?’

I get it. There are some people out there who consider vegan food to be for birds, un-appetizing, or too complicated to try.

Before I started trying out vegan recipes, I too, fell into that camp. 

I was resistant to try foods without some form of dairy or meat in it, and the closest thing to a vegan breakfast was oatmeal or a smoothie.

These days, my palettes have expanded and I LOVE trying, creating, and sharing vegan recipes. There is so much variety, so much deliciousness, you won’t miss the meat at all.
