Having an Aarti Party

I love to watch cooking shows. You can discover great vegan recipes even on shows that aren't necessarily vegan. For instance, this morning I found the following kale recipe on Aarti Party, a show featuring the latest winner of the Next Food Network Star, Aarti Sequeira. I like her show because her recipes feature Indian ingredients and spices. Indian food comprises many vegetarian dishes that are delish! I plan to try this one out as soon as I can get a hold of some sweet mangoes. You can find this recipe here. One more thing, the recipe calls for honey but I plan to substitute agave nectar to make it truly vegan.

Vegan Week-The Results

Well, the results are in for vegan week. I lasted 5 days; going out with a friend on the weekend tripped me up or rather I allowed it to trip me up. I'm not beating myself up though. I did better than I have so far and feel I could make a full transition. I will continue to eat as vegan as I can, as often as I can. One thing that will help is joining a CSA with my co-workers. Three (hopefully four) of us will share a share. With all that fresh produce coming in it's bound to help me stay on course. Look for further developments soon.
