Hi, I'm Mati
born late winter prior to the summer of love, and a non-vegan from birth. My wife is vegan and I love to cook, so here is my take on what it means to have a live-in vegan at home. In this blog I share my insights, tips and recipes that help us co-exist.
This blog is about a moment in life when I realized I have set on a new path, and what followed.
As primary home cook I made a commitment to sustain a live-in vegan. Since undertaking this path I had to overcome many of the challenges, and misconceptions, associated with vegan cooking. So you can read my posts as a set of tried solutions to common conflicts that arise when diets clash :-)
Here I will share with you the trials and tribulations, triumphs and defeats, successes and failures of being the primary kitchen dweller and non-vegan half of an inter-dietary relationship. I will share with you my accumulated experience in the vegan kitchen, in the form of recipes, pantry planning, food preparation methods and tips. I will also share some unavoidable philosophical meanderings on the subject, and our accumulated experience in maintaining an inter-dietary relationship, with the questions it raises, and the answers we came up with.
Who is this blog for?
1. Have a vegan live-in
Well, this group is blatantly obvious: for all you out there non-vegans living with a vegan partner, or have children that came back vegan from school. Our numbers are constantly on the rise, as we are naturaly connected to the skyrocketing vegan population.
Learn all about vegan food you can make on a daily basis from now on, with your own existing kitchenware and techniques, and most of the ingredients you are already using. My pantry entries might also help you gain insight into the shelf side of maintaining a durable vegan routine in your kitchen.
2. Finding it difficult to stay on the vegan wagon
You've already decided to go vegan (or to make your kitchen vegan for love, like I did) and are looking for a simple, sane way to do it. Follow my personal experience in making our kitchen vegan in a doable, durable, and delicious way.
3. Lacking real relationship issues
Vegan-non-vegan isn’t one either. And still you might find it interesting to read about relationship, cooking, vegan way of life, and the rantings of a non-vegan who found himself dazed at the scene…
Everything you'll see - is real life
My love for a special woman has spurred these lists, recipes and ideas about maintaining a durable vegan routine in my kitchen. Sharing my experience means showing you my own kitchen and preparation of the actual food we love to eat.
Don't expect to see pictures and videos made by a food photographer, I'm not. The parsley you'll see is the one I found in our local grocery store. These are: our stove, counter, oven, pots and pans, utensils etc., the actual ones we have and use on a daily basis to make our food.
Welcome to our inter-dietary house, have a seat and enjoy the read.
