I am vegan and it's such an obvious and natural choice for me for so many reasons including my love of animals, environmental concerns, along with social and moral beliefs. I was a vegetarian for a long time, about 15 years, and have been vegan since January 2004. The more I read and was exposed to, the less I could justify eating dairy and eggs. The transition really wasn’t difficult and I feel more at peace now. I like to cook when I have time, so I am either making something out of a vegan cookbooks or modifying a recipe to make it vegan. You could be just as likely to find me overhauling a motorcycle in the garage as you would stir frying tofu kitchen.
