Veganism is not a sacrifice, it's a joy! Gary L Francione
We love burgers - so when looking for something for lunch I thought of using leftover lentils and quinoa (with a little spinach) to make veggie burgers; and for dessert, I served strawberries and pineapple with leftover raw strawberry jam (from yesterday's breakfast) topped off with a sprinkle of chopped walnuts. How simple, how healthy, how delicious!
I grew up in a traditional Greek-American home. But through prayer/meditation, life's experiences and education - came to question basic assumptions concerning foods I used to eat.
My awakening conscience motivated me to use my passion for cooking to do whatever little I can - to encourage ethical, healthy eating while advocating for animals.
And so - with help from grace, lessons of love I learned from daily life with friars and inspiration from Saint Francis - I use my cooking as an Instrument of Peace - by sharing plant based recipes, which reverence all of God's creatures (Isaiah 11:6-9), while offering nutritious, delicious tastes of love, peace and joy!
