Primarily due to this woman’s blog Have you ever seen such beautiful food? Apart from the moral reasons for adopting such a lifestyle (which, though compelling, have thus far not overcome my ardent love of cheese), these elegant recipes have appealed to my aesthetic sense, which has, for the bulk of my adult life, been drawn to simplicity. And here you have one of the simplest diets: healthy, uncomplicated, unpretentious and unprocessed food.
So, I’ll try this for a while (though I say “mostly” vegan because any all-or-nothing type of diet will set me up for disaster once I inevitably fall off the wagon). I invested in a rice-cooker and pressure-cooker, and look forward to being that much more healthy (as soon as I stop doing stupid stuff like eating an obscene amount of cashews as a snack. What was I thinking?).
