Is It Hard to Be Vegan?

I am asked this question, or some form of it, all the time. I used to answer with a quick, “Oh no. It’s really pretty easy once you know what you’re doing.” (And then I would proceed to help them do exactly that—know what they’re doing.) Well..I just celebrated my …

Vegan Cheese, a Guest Blog, and a New Job
