THE TOP SIX THINGS ABOUT ME, THE VEGAN CRAZY BITCH
HI! My name is Monica and I live in Ohio in the USA. My co-residents are Captain UK (aka my hubby transplanted from the United Kingdom), Grant (the youngest of three sons who at 14, knows EVERYTHING), and two rescue kitties who are simply nuts (well, at least one is).
If you haven’t read my blog post on how my website name became what it is, check it out now.
I have always considered myself a great cook and could take just about anything, throw it together, and make a delicious meal.
Then I took the vegan leap and had to learn how to cook all over again.
What the fuck was tofu and who really ate it? Wasn’t that just something they “did” in California?
Nooch lover? What the hell was nutritional yeast? Did you make bread with it?
I had a lot to learn after taking the positive vegan leap almost five years ago now. So how did this all come about?
I was your typical meat, dairy, and egg consumer, basically since I was born. I mean, who wasn’t? Didn’t all of our family and friends eat just about the same way? Who didn’t love to grill out burgers, order pizza for takeout, and hang with friends scarfing down chicken wings while watching the big game?
Sausage, biscuits, and gravy was a specialty of mine as was my “famous” meat and cheese based lasagna. Life was just cruising along (with a few bumps and health issues along the way) when…….BAM, I met a man. Not just a handsome and charming man, but a freaking vegan of all things. How the hell does that happen?
And not only was he a vegan, but he lived almost 4000 miles, YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT, 4000 MILES away from me on another continent across the Atlantic Ocean! This was no dating site Sharon, we just happened to like some of the same group pages on Facebook.
We courted online, because what else did we have? We couldn’t go out on a date, have drinks, go for walks, play kissy face, or any other mode of getting to know each other. So, what did we do?
- ASKED QUESTIONS
- TALKED SOME MORE
I knew this guy was intelligent and I knew he was a vegan for his reasons. I wanted to know more about him. I learned a lot. He wasn’t an asshole about it, he just answered my questions about veganism honestly.
I learned enough to become a vegetarian within a month, a vegan by the next month. I never looked back. It was one of the best decisions of my life!
The deeper I get into my vegan lifestyle, the more hardcore vegan I become. Like another blogger I follow, I consider myself a level 4 plus!
Every one of my daily actions are done with vegan eyes. I grew into it and truly become a better, more focused vegan everyday.
What exactly is veganism? According to the Vegan Society we vegans try to exclude in every possible way cruelty and the use of any and all animal products.
This is the best lifestyle choice for all.
My reason for creating this website and all my social media pages is to promote veganism in all forms. I am as passionate as they come. You can call me many names, but you can never call me boring. Recipes, tips, advice, blog posts, product reviews, and showing everyone that being a vegan is awesome is my dealio.
Positive and proactive for the animals, our bodies, and our planet. We don’t just eat grass. We love food, fun, and compassion. I was in the dark way too long. I just didn’t know any better. I want to teach others. We aren’t hippies (even though we could be)! I want to show others that taking the positive vegan leap is the BEST decision we could ever make.
I want you to follow along and check in on my journey. Have questions? ASK! Need some advice? I’m here. Share your comments and own advice. Enjoy the recipes and craziness. This is the place for vegan.
I am fierce, loyal, fun, crazy, and love to have a good time.
Videos are coming soon and you will definitely want to be a part of that experience, especially after I’ve had a couple Jack Daniels on the rocks or I’m really excited about the latest vegan news and happenings.
The videos will be rocking out or a train wreck just waiting to happen. Our You Tube channel is just getting started.
I seem to have odd run ins, conversations, experiences, and all other kinds of crazy shit happen to me (us, the family).
My life is a giant rollercoaster that makes for great entertainment! Just today I had an engineer at work (my real job) ask me for a business card to check out my website and t-shirt shop. As I handed it to him, he said, “Now what’s your website’s name again? BITCH GONE CRAZY?” Ha ha ha. No Aron, it’s Vegan Bitch Can Cook, but I’ve definitely already gone crazy.
Stay around for the ride.
