Hello Ellen, Well looking @ some of these Vegan Recieps seem interesting. I think I will try them. because, to tell you the truth, I'm really bot enjoying meat the way I did in my youth. also I really need to lose weight. Home regrouping and recooping from test to see if I had Heart Deiaese.

I was curious why Ellen's site doesn't include HappyCow (the world's largest vegan restaurant and health food store guide)?? It is considered THE resource for vegans to find either vegan or veg-friendly restaurants near where they live. I am a vegan, and I couldn't do without HappyCow website (happycow dot net) or the HappyCow app.
