I’d like to share my blog, VegCharlotte - Living Vegan in Charlotte, NC!

I’m just your typical Irish lassie living in the American South with my Punjabi partner and four furry rescue babies.  So my food inspirations are a bit varied, to say the least.

My vision for this blog is to serve as a resource and inspiration for others on the veg path.  Not just recipes, but what it’s like to live the vegan life.

I don’t really go into the reasons why you should be vegan.  If you’ve made it to my blog, you already know those.

But it’s a different thing - deciding to go vegan and then actually living vegan, day after day.  Month after month.  Year after year.  Hate to sound like a cliche, but believe me when I tell you that while it isn’t always easy, it IS always worth it.

So, that’s basically what my blog’s about.  Living Vegan.  In Charlotte, NC.

But if you don’t live in Charlotte, NC - never fear!  Much of my blog applies to living vegan anywhere.

I love to cook, eat, and read, so therefore I:

  • Share recipes - both for the Southern soul food I grew up on, and the spicy Punjabi food I’ve completely fallen in love with over the past four years.  
  • Write restaurant reviews - from a veg perspective!  Even though I’m vegan, I also note the vegetarian options as well.
  • Write book reviews - for both cookbooks and books that may be of special interest to vegans and vegetarians.  

I’ve only been blogging for about a year, and this month is my second VeganMoFo!  I’ll be adding new features to my blog - such as more interviews with local, inspirational vegans and a Frugal Friday feature.

Please check it out!

ModEdit: Thanks VegCharlotte!
