So the final day of my Vegan month has arrived. And in all honesty, the 1st March has been just as interesting and challenging as the 1st February. After fulfilling my month-long craving for cheese, I felt very underwhelmed. Allowing myself to eat non-vegan food again was like my parents offering me alcohol for the first time: a… Continue reading Vegan Month Review.
