Today I am happy that I have never smoked cigarettes except for a year when I was in my late stupid teens, half a century ago. I'm also happy that my choking, my gasping and my burning eyes and insomnia are not nearly as bad as all that might be if there were twice as many smokers in the building where I reside.

I want to be happy for you (and that's awesome that you have rarely ever smoked!) but i feel bad for you living in such an environment. :/ In my city smoking is not allowed in rental units now, but of course that doesn't stop people.

I'm happy that on my flight home from Cali, I sat next to two vegans!!! YAY!!! And, one is moving to the capital of my state, and the other lives in the next town over from me.

I'm happy that I spent Christmas Eve with my college roommate's family and they had a special pizza just for me. It made me feel so welcome.

Plus I'm happy it's Christmas. Merry Christmas, everyone!

I got a vegan cookbook for Christmas and tried out one of the recipes and it turned out really well.

That is awesome...it does feel great, doesn't it? I have two friends who are making serious strides toward vegetarianism and reducing their dairy intake.

I got "Vegan Richa's Indian Kitchen" from the library and I'm going to have to buy it. It's so good. I thought about getting the Nutribullet when it was on sale at Aldi, and now I wish I would have...

Today as the weather is miserable, I'm happy that I don't have to be out in it! I'm also happy to eat spinach pie and hummus for dinner.

I love vegan richa, but I think I'll get it from the library.
You should see if your aldi has any left, or call others. It's very worth it! Mine still has four. I've been really happy with their small appliances, got my pressure there too-stainless steel

Today I m happy that I ate well, and am starting to come to terms with the eggs in my diet. Although only egg whites, I still find myself not at 100 percent peace but I hope to make some slight changes, using substitutes in the future when available. Really not ready to do the vegan thing, but ready to accept some vegan recipes

Just noticed my VB join date next to another of my posts, and realized I've been veg for 9 years now. Wow. I hadn't realized it was that long.

Posted a picture of the vegan brownie(s) I made on Facebook, and a friend I have in Portugal commented on it saying I need to go there and teach her some vegan stuff, and that she has been slowly trying.
Well, I am going there this month.

Today, my omni hubby told me that he likes the gardein chick'n better than the real thing...he said he doesn't see any reason for him to buy chicken again. (Chicken used to be one of his favourite foods until he saw some documentaries with me and started looking for alternatives.) Anyway, I was SHOCKED and so happy!

Even though most people quit pork and beef first, the number of chickens killed for food is a lot bigger, so that's pretty cool.

Today, I'm happy that there are so many cruelty-free options available. I've been trying to phase out cosmetics and products that aren't; started with soaps, cleansers, hair care, etc. and am slowly moving onto makeup. I am dying to use up the last of my mascara so I can finally chuck it and support a more mindful company.
