When I hit the dating scene I was looking for someone who was smart, taller than me, let's be honest good looking, and had an amazing personality. Basically perfection. It never crossed my mind how potentially difficult it would be to date a meat eater, let alone be married to one. When we first started dating our different diets was no biggie. I'd order the vegetarian options at a restaurant while he ordered meat dishes. When we started living together the constant balancing act of managing both of our diets had, on many occasions, me wishing one of us would give. What I have learned is that I cannot change my partner as much as I sometimes wish I could. They are gonna eat what makes them happy and I'm going to eat what makes me happy. I can only love them for who they are. In this series I'm going to cover everything from tips and tricks I've learned along the way to my continued journey living with a meat eater. I'm so excited I get share this journey with all of you. If you have any questions or specific topics you would like for me to cover, please feel free to leave them in the comments section below this post.
About five years ago I worked in a Raw Vegan Cafe. One of the things I learned to cook while I worked there was Taco Nut Meat.
It also happened to be my favorite thing!
What I liked about it best was that it was close to "regular" taco meat, but only better. This is not only 100% vegan it is 100% RAW vegan.
Not all soy sauces, olive oil and spices are considered raw. You would want to make sure the one you are using is raw if you are on a raw diet.

It is delicious in a lettuce wrap (as pictured), on a salad or pretty much anywhere!
This can be stored for up to one week but typically does not last that long.
This is a basic recipe, feel free to add other vegetables to it if it gets too thick just add a bit of water!

When my friend Madison cooked me this mac and cheese for the first time, I was shocked at how delicious it tasted. It reminded me of that Velveeta mac and cheese because its so rich and creamy. She made it again for a pot luck we went to and EVERYONE (even the non-vegans) at the event was raving about it and saying it was the best mac and cheese they have had. I wanted to make it for my mom, aka the biggest cheese lover I know, and see if even she would like it. I asked Madison for the recipe, she sent it to me, and I was shocked! It was basically the easiest recipe I have ever seen. I would not even call it a “recipe”, just throwing some things in a pot. Long story short, I made it in like 15 minutes and even my mom loved it. So, I thought I should share it with everyone! I know Daiya vegan cheese gets a bad reputation in the vegan community, but give it a chance in this recipe! I usually do not like Daiya but I promise it works in this case. You do not need to add in any vegetables,…
