I decided not to view this change to a vegan diet as a deprivation of all the yummy foods I used to love, but rather as a new life wherein I am discovering new foods with even more deliciousness.
It has rekindled my passion for food preparation. This vegan life-style requires thought, innovation, research and creativity. I am challenged to make the most satisfying dishes in the healthiest possible way. It is an adventure and a whole new world.
For lunch today I made a sandwich that was to die for with a Marsala vegan patty, grilled onion, bell pepper, tomato, lettuce and a bit of my mock cheese sauce, all on toasted, gluten free rye bread.
I’ve got plans for a Vegan borscht for dinner. Mmmm mmmm!
