My name is Maria and I started Vegan Cowgirl to provide a resource for vegetarians and vegans. I became a vegetarian in 2006 after hearing about the China Study. I had no idea at the time how challenging it would be giving up my favorite meat dishes. I later transitioned to a mostly vegan diet when I read The Kind Diet. I have worked over the years to create vegetarian and vegan recipes that taste as close as possible to their mainstream counterparts. Finding vegetarian and vegan friendly products, retailers, and restaurants has been another ongoing journey. I hope to share my experiences to help others on their path to a different lifestyle
