Here is the story of a young man, hell bent on changing the world. It starts on a cool, spring day in a small town south of Boston…
Okay, maybe not.
I started on my journey as a vegetarian in May of 2003 and really never looked back. I started out to “be healthy.” I was overweight, unhealthy and unhappy. Giving up meat was my way of cutting out so many of the things that I ate on a regular basis that were bad for me. Everyone thought I was crazy but I stuck with it.
It was the best decision I ever made.
I did indeed lose weight and felt pretty awesome. In May of 2010 I decided to start a new journey and make a bigger decision for me and for my life. I read Skinny Bitch for the first time and it really put some things in perspective for me. I started following a full vegan diet and once again I have never looked back. Again, people thought I was crazy.
It was the SECOND best decision I ever made.
I follow a vegan lifestyle for me and for every living thing that doesn’t have the choice on whether or not they want to be killed and eaten… Or those who can’t choose whether or not they want their eggs, their milk, their skin, their fur, their work to be used for human consumption. It is not the easiest choice, but it is one I am very happy with.
I am not a skinny bitch and I probably never will be. I am writing this blog to show vegans eat some pretty awesome stuff. Why wouldn’t we? Some of it is really awesome for you, some of it may not be. I am a bit of a rarity, a chubby vegan. I love food, I love to travel, I love my dogs and I like talking about all of it. Here is my life, my food, my travel, my musings. I hope you enjoy it.
