Happy to connect with fellow Veggie enthusiasts!

I've been following a plant-based (mostly vegan) diet for about four years. I originally began to eat more mindfully to lose weight and fully transitioned to plant-based as I learned more about nutrition and the health benefits of avoiding animal products.

My daughter was diagnosed with a wheat and dairy allergy when she was 11, which further increased my interest in how the foods we eat impact our health. She's now almost 15 and is thriving on a whole foods, largely plant-based diet.

I launched a food blog in January where I share vegan and gluten-free recipes and articles/tips for following a plant-based lifestyle.

I'm pleased to join this discussion forum as it presents yet another opportunity to share information and ideas with like-minded folks.

Welcome!

Nice blog!

I'm plant-based to get off heart and diabetes meds....sick and tired of being sick and tired.

With your experience you'll be a valuable contributor!!

Welcome @Veggie Primer ! Your blog is nice. I love sweet potatoes too, cold, warm, however. Your salad looks so good!

Thank you! It's a challenge not to add too many sweet potato recipes at once otherwise all of my pics look orange! ha ha

I appreciate you taking the time to look at my blog and welcome me to this forum.

My usual answer: I have never heard a convincing reason to eat meat.
