As I stated on my Instagram page today, I’m basically a vegan. I searched for the proper term the other day. My official classification is “seagan” seafood-vegan. I no longer consume butter even though its the best ingredient in the wold according to Paula Dean. I haven’t put milk or cream in my coffee in years. I don’t eat real mac and cheese anymore, just the fake stuff, and I’ve officially given up pizza as we all know it. (I’m currently craving pizza, and wondering if Uno’s Pizzeria will make me a deep dish gluten free pizza with chunky tomato sauce) the struggle is real.
*update Uno’s makes gluten free pizza, I just ordered online
Now, don’t let me have you thinking being a vegan is a drag, because its not. If I didn’t enjoy it, I wouldn’t do it. Some people do it for animal rights reasons, some people do it for dietary reasons. Me, I’m a combination of both. Apparently January is Vegan-January, that being said I felt like I should share my vegan, gluten-free chocolate chip cookie recipe with you.
