Hello, all you wonderful plant eaters and soon to be plant-eaters! Welcome to A New View of Food. Here is the story of my journey to a fully plant based lifestyle:
I was raised in New Jersey in the nineteen sixties, and my mom did not like to cook. Not everyone can relate; some of you were probably lucky enough to have been given real food to eat, but I was eating processed, high fat, high sugar food throughout the day. Eggs, with American Cheese, Spam, PopTarts, tuna fish and other cold cut meat sandwiches, and meat or fish with canned vegetables for supper. As a child, a dinner out was fried chicken, or Chinese spare ribs, or hamburgers and fries. In high school, my father would pick me up after a volunteered at our hospital and take me to Burger King for a Whopper with cheese. I don’t recall ever having a salad (which is so sad to consider). We had margarine, Cool Whip, and everything was artificial.
