Superstar VegWebber of the Week: blinknoodle!
Our Superstar VegWebber this week is blinknoodle (http://vegweb.com/index.php?action=profile;u=4975)! She's been a VegWebber for over ten years! Crazy, right?! However, she's only recently started in the forums, gracing us with her wit and insight. Oh, and her website! It's filled with amazing recipes! Guess who is making that Tofu with Zesty Rhubarb Sauce tonight? THIS lady! Thanks so much for being great and hanging out on VegWeb, blinknoodle!
VegWebber since? Technically my account was created in 2001, but I didn't start using the forums until 9 years later!
Vegetarian, Vegan or ? I can now say I am vegan, but this was only a recent decision (ie. last month). I slowly morphed into from a meat eater, into a pescetarian and now have made a conscious choice towards a vegan diet based on whole grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables. Sometimes I find it easier for people to understand I am a vegan.
