VeganMoFo Day 4 - I have the best mom!

My family and I went to my parents' house yesterday for the day and I realized that I have the best mom! I'm the only vegan in the family. I haven't eaten meat in 16 years and I've been vegan for almost 2 years. Yesterday my mom fixed lunch and dinner for us. For lunch we had sandwiches and chips. She made sure that I had multiple options (PB&J or Boca Chicken Patties) w/vegan bread (that she bought just for me). For dinner she had lasagna (beef and cheese), but she made me tofu ravioli. She also made sure that there was dressing that I could eat for my salad, AND vegan croutons! Like I said, I have the best mom in the world!
I just wanted to brag to the world about how wonderful my family is. I hear horror stories about other people and their families. I feel blessed to have the family that I have who honors my choice to be vegan. (Now if only I could get them to join me!)

Happy Eating!


  1. Sounds like your mom ROCKS!!! Good for her... for supporting you and making such a fantastic effort.

    My family's pretty good too, but I usually do the cooking and they usually come here from out of town.

    Love your blog!

  2. My mom does rock! She does it every time we're together. When she knows there's a veg*n and she's bringing food, she makes sure she makes something they can eat. She's pretty special.

    Thanks for the comment!
