A reluctant vegan is born

This blog will chronicle my attempts at becoming 90% vegan. I am doing this for reasons most clearly explained in this book (and this one as well). I simply can no longer ignore the evidence that animal protein does not do a body good. Vanity is also at work: do I want to be healthy, slim, and have that gorgeous glow vegans have? Yes. Do I want to stop eating milk, eggs, and cheese? No, no, and hell no. I've already been a vegetarian since I was 16, so I don't have problems with giving up meat.

My solution so far has been to use dairy products and eggs as occasional condiments. I'll be posting recipes, thoughts, and dispatches from the daily struggle to avoid picking up pizza on my way home.
