Hi there and welcome to my blog! I am a stay-at-home mom in my mid thirties. My husband and I made the switch from an omnivore diet to a strictly plant-based diet three years ago. We did so primarily for health reasons, and although environmental and ethical considerations have grown more important to us over the years, health remains our main motivation.
A year after making the switch, we were blessed with a beautiful, healthy baby boy, and today, we are committed to raising a family on a plant-based diet. I’ve started this blog to connect to others who are also raising vegetarian children or who are just interested in eating more plant-based meals, even if they’re not making the full switch.
I have a background in food so my main focus will be to offer ideas and recipes for easy, quick, tasty meals for busy parents and their families. I’m not aiming for restaurant quality meals, just dishes that are within reach of normal people to prepare and are appetizing to parents and kids alike. For the most part I’ll stay away from unusual ingredients and techniques, although if I feel an ingredient or method is worth going out of your way for, I’ll include it.
Of course there’s more to raising vegetarian kids than figuring out what’s for dinner, and as issues arise in my own family’s journey I’ll be sure to address them.
I hope that vegetarians of all stripes – part-time, full-time, strict or casual – can find something helpful on these pages, and can also share some things that can help me.
Thanks for visiting – and I would love to hear your feedback so please let me know what you think!
