Hi! I'm Vanessa and I love vegetables, cooking, traveling, and running. I have been vegetarian since 2005 and I have been cooking vegan since 2010. I went from only knowing how to make Kraft mac n' cheese and only eating Kraft mac n' cheese to being an avid consumer of broccoli, tofu, and other things that picky eaters despise. There are still random things that I refuse to try (peanut butter and jelly... I'm sorry, I can't do it). Everyday I try to introduce new foods (yes I am still kind of a seven year old) and slowly I am expanding my food list. I now eat things like kale, tempeh and coconut milk that I would have never understood years ago. Ah, the veggie life.
