  1. One struggle I’m dealing with at dinner is even though I don’t eat meat, I still think I need something with similar mouth feel and look, which really makes no sense because if I don’t want to eat meat, why do I want something that looks and tastes like it? But it’s years of habit I’m working to change. Thanks for the recipes!

    • No longer is absolutely right! I wasn’t always vegan and when I set out on this journey I was intent on getting the most flavor out of the experience as well as veganizing the comfort food recipes I grew up with. For some, veganism is a minimalist lifestyle, though–a way of simplifying food: vegetables, beans, grains. Some are purists in that sense and I respect that. I have to say I am a bit more hedonistic in my approach. It’s all about balance 🙂
