We are returning to our vegan status once again. We have strayed into lacto-ovo territory for quite a while now, and we have even dipped our toes in a bit of bacon and sausage in the last year. But the truth is, we both feel a whole lot better when we stick to eating plants.

When we turned vegan, we did it cold turkey (or should I say cold tofurkey? Ha ha. I slay me.) We went from full carnivore to vegan, not in stages. That may sound dreadful to some of you, but we enjoyed it and saw it as a culinary challenge. We expanded our repertoire dramatically and really grew and developed as cooks.

I also recall feeling better almost immediately. My guts suddenly worked perfectly with no heartburn or indigestion, and my allergy symptoms were 90% gone within about 2 weeks. So plan on seeing some new stuff on this blog as I rededicate myself to plants!

You know, I thought I was crazy when I saw the post about the carbonara, but decided I just didn't remember correctly, which is not unusual.

Glad you're back to posting. I missed you and JB.

I am rededicating to posting too. You are sort of lucky in that you HAVE to write a lot. I feel like I get rusty when I walk away from it for too long.

You know, other vegans and vegetarians I am acquainted with say that bacon is the toughest thing to give up. And cheese is well, CHEESE. How can you not love it? Sigh. The cows and pigs...were they sent here to tempt and torment us? And twist our guts into pretzels?
