Just realized I've been vegan 6 months, as of today.
And I have not died from lack of protein, go figure. Actually, I have never felt better. (Mostly thanks to this book & this one.)
And I have learned to make all manner of luscious things that have even my nonvegan friends and family going wow. (Many courtesy of this book.)
My grocery budget has been cut by 1/3. (Beans and tofu are quite thrifty, as are in-season veggies, particularly from our CSA.)
Best of all, completely cutting dairy has significantly reduced my allergies. Ahhhhhh! Breathing rocks!
