For anyone who’s ever been curious about what it would take to switch to a vegan diet and not hate it, Serious Eats’ J. Kenji LÃ³pez-Alt is going vegan for all of February.
Last year, I decided to go vegan for an entire month, chronicling my thoughts, challenges, health, and weight the entire time. I thought it’d be a fun exercise, that perhaps I’d gain some insight into my own diet and into the lives of those who live, well, a little differently than the rest of us.
So by overwhelming demand (mostly by my wife, myself, and a few very vocal readers), I’m doing it all again this year, developing 28 brand new recipes, learning from my mistakes, and surely making a few more in the process.
If you’ve ever had an inclination to go vegan or just test out the waters, I hope that a few of my thoughts and recipes here will help you do that. To get you started, I’ve compiled all 23 essays and 28 recipes in one easy-to-navigate spot.
