I am crossing my fingers for the viva vegan book!!!

I don’t have much trouble skipping on meats and milk but during times if stress…or that time of the month I heavily rely on cheese.

I would love to hear about cheese alternatives!

I’ve been quiet but totally following along all week! This is right up my alley. I’ve been a vegetarian for almost 4 years now and every time I go home to NJ my parents forget. They always offer me some picadillo or empanadas or something meaty and then mention – oh are you still doing that? Love them =)
