Hi and welcome to Vegan Vigilante, a blog inspired by my love for vegan cooking and vegan food. I haven’t always been vegan, like many of you, I grew up eating meat. It was just something everyone did, right? I never questioned it until I went to college and became a vegetarian. In one of my classes, I had to prepare a presentation that was designed to convince others to change their mind about something. I thought what better way to spread the word about vegetarianism than to do my presentation about becoming a vegetarian. The key factor I chose to incite people into changing their minds was to show the movie “Faces of Death” which detailed the suffering of animals being slaughtered. According to some people in the class, the video was enough to make them change their minds and become vegetarian.
It’s been many years since I graduated from college and the showing of that controversial film. After learning a lot about the dairy industry and how they contributed to animal suffering, I finally transitioned to a vegan diet in early 2016. I have never looked back.
You Don’t Have to be Vegan to Enjoy Vegan Food!
My goal with this blog it to show vegans and non-vegans alike how delicious vegan recipes can be. Plant-based, cruelty-free…you can’t get any better than that. The recipes I create for the blog are always vegan, but many times they’re also gluten-free and refined sugar-free, too. I also try to limit the ingredients and make many things using only one pot. And remember, you don’t have to be vegan to enjoy vegan food.
This site is relatively new, so please be patient as I slowly build it with new recipes and tips for becoming vegan. I hope you enjoy the blog and the recipes put a smile on your face.
