I am about to celebrate my 6 year anniversary of no meat/animal product cooking. My goal everyday is to be a 100% dietary vegan. I live in the Cleveland, Ohio area, the least sunny spot in the US four months of the year. I enjoy cooking and spending time with my family. I am quite ill with several auto-immune diseases, a blood disorder and Mitochondrial Disease. This severely restricts my energy level. I can't do vigorous exercise anymore but I need to keep moving even if it is at a snails pace. I love to try new recipes and cook several times a week in bulk amounts so I don't have to cook as often. I eat very low fat and healthy whole foods: tons of veggies, legumes, whole grains and whole fruits. I do make desserts from time to time... some days when I feel particularly low... I eat dessert twice....LOL Over the past 3 1/2 years I have re-learned how to cook and I love my new recipes. I eat well and am happy that my diet works for me.
