The Vegan & Mom.
I’m Nicole. I am a vegan mother and wife to a meat-eating family. I have been on a journey with food for the past year and a half. I have been a vegetarian since February 2010 and have loved it. For the first 4 months of my vegetarianism I was actually vegan. I loved the way that I felt, but I began to eat cheese and that put me back into the vegetarian category. I have decided to go back to a vegan diet for many reasons that I will share later.
The Little Meat Eaters.
These are my kids who were raised on meat (because I have only been a vegetarian for a year.) They love hamburgers, bacon, chicken and other animals! My daughter is almost 13 years old and my son is 6. They are happy, healthy kids who don’t quite realize the food journey that we are taking.
This is my wonderful hubby who is very supportive about what I do. He has lifted weights 5 days per week for the past 22+ years and has always had a diet high in protein (i.e. animals!) He is open to exploring new foods and flavors and has enjoyed eating different kinds of foods during the past year.
