Hi. My name is Miranda Nelson, and I am a lifelong vegan. I love being vegan because it is helpful to the environment, the suffering animals, and my health. People always ask me, "Is it hard to be vegan?" And I say, "NO WAY! It's so easy!" There are so many different types of rices,whole grain breads and cereals, beans, vegetables, and fruits. How could I not find something to eat?! I usually eat at home because it's less expensive, and I love the food I eat! I don't see how any other food could taste as good as the food I eat. I love whole wheat pasta with no salt added marinara sauce and vegetables. I always like to add a little bit of soy sauce and raw garlic spread. When my friends come over to my house, they always say, "WOW! This food is so good!" A lot of people don't give vegan food a chance. They just think, "EW, vegetables!" But eating vegan food not-only tastes amazing, it also makes you feel great! I dance around 3 to 4 hours a day, so I need to have substantial energy. I truly don't think I could be as active as I am if I didn't eat a plant-based diet. If any of you out there have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!
