I have been a cheating vegetarian for more than 10 years. But my soul has been asking me for years to go one step further and eat vegan. Actually, its been asking me to go two steps further and eat raw. I’ve tried to eat vegan before but could not keep it up because I LOVE cheese.

But, I can no longer ignore my soul’s calling.

So, today… I decided to begin the journey to eating totally vegan. I found this great little restaurant (Pura Vida Bakery & Bystro) and ate there for the  first time. LOVED IT!

Life presents amazing synchronicities, however. I sat across from a girl and she told me about another restaurant in town that I should visit – and guess what? It’s raw!

I’m not quite ready to go raw – just yet – but my first vegan meal – potatoes covered with beans and cheese and chocolate pancakes with bananas – made my first day of being vegan much easier.
