My second-life has much to do with veganism and being a vegan cook. Most of my thoughts on veganism are inclusive and questioning. I think it will take all of us, non-vegan and vegan, to move forward to a more compassionate future. My blog Messy Cooking, Always Vegan is a big part of my after 5pm life. Here I share fun recipes, write about the future of meat and address inconsistencies and dogma within the vegan movement itself.
