Hi, my name is Sheana and I have been dieting for 14 years. I am not obese or ill I am just always trying the latest health trend, and I am sick of it. I am starting a new. I am not labeling myself in anyway (vegetarian, vegan, gluten free….paleo) all of which I have tried. However, I will claim a few things about myself: I have a digestive intolerance for eggs and dairy and I cannot physically bring myself to eat animal protein anymore which by default makes my diet mostly vegan. I have seen too many documentaries, read too many books and LOVE all creatures on this earth way too much. Call it guilt or philosophy? I don’t know. I call it preference. To each his or her own there is no judgment here. I live in a home with a person who eats everything! I cook food for him that I don’t like to eat but I love to cook and I love to nurture the people I love. I do have one rule when it comes to cooking or feeding animal protein to my family: It must be local, organic and / or self supplied (i.e. catching 1 fish to feed yourself). Here I am. A growing and learning person looking for a community to share and grow with.
