Theme to “Veganize” meals for weight loss is picking up steam.
p>I caught a quick segment on the Today Show (with Anne Curry) while getting ready for work today and found the corresponding article that I wanted to share. Cynthia has 7 easy steps to help with your weight loss goals and I was excited that one of them was about the benefits of veganizing a few meals each week… I love seeing the concept of veganizing some meals to help with ones overall nutrition even if they would like to maintain a normal, non-labeled, animal eating diet. Check out my recipes for tips on making these veganish meals for you and your family! Below is her tip excerpted from the READ FULL STORY: XO Melissa Makeover Your Diet with These 7...

A new recipe each week…. challenge for 2012 :)
p>I’m not a resolution type person, I just kind of go with the flow…But 2011 was full of drastic changes! last year, I did a Daniel Fast with my friends and accidentally fell in love with not eating meat. It now marks 1 year of my acquired herbivore-ness and 3 months of trying to further veganize my diet. (after I had a revelation of my chance of heart disease, current cholesterol metrics and my 30 day experiment that left me feeling alive and whole.) My goal when creating new recipes, is to make it easy, affordable, not weird and veganish enough that most everyone will enjoy it even if they like to eat the meat. So, my goal in 2012 is to share more of these...
