Sunny's Vegan Journey

Hi! I'm Sunny and I'm a happy, healthy vegan. I became vegetarian in 2008 the day I saw a "Mercy for Animals" video on the abuses of factory farming. My continuing to rely on dairy and eggs led to a weight gain and high cholesterol. I became vegan in March 2009 when I received Rip Esselstyn's book, "The Engine 2 Diet." I've been vegan ever since, learning to rely on delicious plant-based foods. Other than the hassle of eating in certain restaurants and trying to explain my choice to some ...

I'm not suffering, I'm not deprived, and I've lost weight!

Thanks for stopping by. I am not sure about Montreal. I know Ottawa has a least 3 vegetarian restarants here so I am sure Montreal must have some lovely ones as well.
Have a wonderful trip there. emoticon

Thank you for the comment on my blog. I'm glad you were voting and not near WTC at time of impact. I saw an amazing documentary about what happened there, and it helped me to understand better what a very close relative went through working and living in that area.

I was (and am) in downtown D.C. where the sight of the Pentagon on fire and later seeing the hole in the side was a shocking image.

Definitely going to Whole Foods and learning I had new selections, especially during the winter, was a real pick-me-up. I still love the farmer's markets best but selection is getting slimmer as fall arrives.

Thank you, Sunny. I look forward to the journey ahead, and am thankful for the connections, resources and encouragement that SP has afforded me.

PS - I will be making your Eggplant Bacon next week. Sounds delicious!
