"Wait so you don't eat meat?"
"You don't have dairy?"
"Cheese, milk, eggs? Bacon? ; none of it?!"
"None of it!"
"So, what do you have?!"
How many times have I encountered that conversation recently? Way too many!
In fact in the last week an ex co-worker made a well placed quip about me enjoying my "veggie sausages"!
Hi, My name is Hanna, and I'm an accidental vegan!
I'm a vegan for a few reasons, but primarily medical reasons. You may not be, you may be attempting a lifestyle change, you may have moral reasons, but at the end of the day, we are all here.
As I said, I am not a vegan for personal or moral reasons, I was kind of bullied into it, but I do believe that a mainly vegan based diet is a lot better for us in the long run - and by that I don't mean that I'm going to be eating the vegans!
The problem is, here, out in the sticks, where it takes a good half hour to even encounter a shop, trying to ascertain "specialist" ingredients is a bit difficult!
My aim is to create recipes we can all enjoy (that even at times, my ridiculously picky younger brother - he's 19, he thinks he owns the world- has enjoyed without complaint, and, he's a carnivore!) that are simple to construct, that are easy to follow, and that contain easily sourced ingredients!
Let's not make this difficult shall we?
