Plant-Based Food Philosophy & Recipes

This page of resources belongs to the Homemaking Resource Library.

For many years we had a vegan kitchen, about fourteen years. My kids were raised on a mostly plant-based diet - all plants at home, other options available out of the house. 

Recently we've added limited meat, dairy and eggs (mostly organic, though not always) to our household diet for the very practical reason that I am plumb-tired of cooking. And for me, keeping up a vegan kitchen, with three almost always hungry teenagers, just wasn't going to happen.

My creative cooking energies are drained, I'd rather spend my time elsewhere, and although we still eat lots of plants, we also eat animal products and more processed foods (granola bars, crackers, etc.) more regularly than we used to (like when most of these posts were written).
