I guess I should start out by introducing myself. My name is Jackie and I live in Southern California with my boyfriend, Lasonic and my Siamese cat, Taffy .
I have been vegan for almost a year now. What made me change my diet was an article I read in a local vegetarian restaurant. It spoke about the horrors that animals endure in factory farms and the effect it will also play on your health. The very next day I gave up meat for good.
Now looking back at my decision, it all makes sense to me. I was not really a fan of meat, even though I grew up eating traditional Mexican cooking regularly. I never truly enjoyed being in the kitchen until I went vegan. Cooking and trying my new creations has really become a passion of mine. I try to cook three new recipes each week. Which in return, has really helped me expand my knowledge on perfecting vegan cooking and incorporating new ingredients that had never existed to me as a non-vegan.
So if you will like to join me on my journey, please feel free. I promise to fill my blog with recipes you never thought could be vegan and plenty of food porn pictures.
