    Blogger of the Day: Jean at Eat Your Beans

    The subtitle of Jean’s blog is “21 day vegan challenge on the cheap!”…she’s a vegetarian mom who wanted to go vegan for 21 days and ended up stretching it out for over a year! She posted loads of easy yumful recipes, info bits like “top 7 sources for vegan protein”, plus a helpful list of vegan food deals and steals…supercool if you’d rather spend your money on animalhuggin’ tees and tats. 😉

    On today’s carnivore food calendar it’s chicken cordon bleu day…cheese stuffed in a chicken is too wrong in too many ways. So we’re doing up vegan cheese stuffed in a vegan calzone instead…takes almost no time, tastes crazydelish and the innocent chickens and cows will thank you! :)

    I think I’ve been vegan for around 5-6 years now. People keep asking me and I’m not entirely sure, it’s not something I ever made a note of!!

    Noodles have to be my favourite vegan cheap eat – just add some sauce to the cheapest ones and they taste good!

    I can name my least favourite vegan stuffed food: peppers! I like peppers but they don’t like me (they make me really bloated) so it does irritate me when it seems to be the default vegan option at a lot of places.

    And my favourite vegan stuffed food is… in my mouth LOL!
