Eating Out: Salad for Dinner

My friend Paul is the one who introduced me to veganism.  I had heard of it, but the thought of eating vegan seemed 1) ridiculous and 2) impossible. But at about the time he took me under his wing, I was ready for a life change.  He was such a good cook that eating vegan […]

Furthermore, it was delicious.  The first night I had a lentil burger with sauteed onions.  It also comes with cheese, which I declined.
