I'm trying to do the same thing when I'm home. Bible study and B-Days are a different story...

Do you have an Iphone? There is an app for 21 day kick start to going vegan. There are a bunch of good recipes on there!!! Chili Mac (
ail.asp?recipe=871629) & Artichoke Lentil stew were both amazing! is also good...

Ha! Welcome to the team! Gosh, if I didn't know better I'd say that I wrote that myself... well, except for the baking part. I don't even do that! Lol...

Good luck on your journey!

I'm starting this challenge now because for Lent, I've decided to be pescatarian for the full 40 days (vs. just Fridays), and going completely vegetarian on Fridays. So I need to be a bit more creative.

But more than that, I just need to practice cooking more. Right now, the edibility of anything I prepare is questionable at best. My husband is an amazing cook and does most of our cooking. I'm lucky if I don't screw up Mac n' Cheese out of a box.

I tried to make hummus the other day. The recipe called for 4 cloves of garlic. I did not understand what a clove was, and ended up buying way too much. One bulb has several cloves within. I did not realize this before purchasing. We now have enough garlic in the house to ward off a league of hungry vampires for some time. (FYI, the hummus was a bit bland, but surprisingly edible.)

I can bake. I can bake like no one's business. Cookies, cakes, breads, pastries...all the stuff that's really not condusive to weight loss. But if I'm in front of a stove, with meats and vegetables and spices and all that, I'm pretty useless.

So I'm going to give this whole cooking thing a shot. Hubby is getting tired of cooking all the time, and eating out is not the healthiest/cheapest option.

Live well, Laugh often, Love much!
