“Let me clarify: I am not a vegan
because I “love animals”.
Rather, veganism is about justice.
It is not a “lifestyle choice”.
It is not a “personal preference”.
Veganism is not about you or me at all.
It is about the fundamental right of
nonhumans not to be used, owned,
labeled, branded, enslaved,
exploited and generally commodified
to serve our interests and convenience.”
— Kerry Wyler

These pictures give a general view of my minimalist
approach to all things which includes food.
I rarely, if ever, make complicated recipes.
Most days I eat two meals within a 5-6 hour time frame.
Intermittent fasting is said to improve health and longevity!
I tend to eat the same few things for long periods of time
before switching to something different.
