Woot! Congratulations. What made you become vegan? I always find it interesting to hear how other people got into it.

I was sick for 9 months. and told I would die unless I eat healthier. I was also vegetarian on and off just cause I knew animal murder was wrong.
and while I was sick, animal products made me even sicker. Meat made me throwup and have diharrea, so did pizza, eggs, and anything else my mom tried to feed me.
after I got over mono,
I went to Hellfest and drove a bunch of ppl I barely knew, and became good friends along the way. One guy, Chris X, inspired me to try veganism for moral and health reasons. So I started eliminating animal products one by one from diet (there werent that many to cut out. I always despised milk and other dairy.) Everyone from relatives and friends found out I was vegan and said thats why I am so sick, skinny, and pale. when in fact it was cause I almost died from mononucleosis.
so I Wanted to prove to them and myself that with my new compassionate lifestyle that I could be healthy and strong. thus my quest to start bodybuilding and to remain vegan. my biggest problem was breaking bones from my high-adrenaline activities, so I had to cut back in order to remain injury free and build muscle.

so yepp thats pretty much the story. 8)

Ha ha! I made vegan pizza in my oven! I took a digital pizza picture! :P

As far as the cheesy-ness - I guess it's just so cheesy because my humor rubbed off on it! LOL....ok, that was bad. I use "Follow Your Heart" brand vegan cheese....if you place it under the broiler after everything is cooked, in about a minute, all the cheese is fantastically melted.

OK, so maybe you didn't want to know that much! :wink:

:shock: Perfect!

I have been trying for months to figure out how to melt that stuff! I was starting to think I might need a blow torch! Okay, next pizza is going under the broiler! 8)

Happy Veganniversary !
Out of my mind...Back in five minutes.

No human can call themselves liberal or radical or even a conservative advocate of fair play, if they contribute in any way to the pain and suffering of other beings.

Just be sure you bake the pizza with the cheese in the oven first - say 5 - 10 minutes....this warms the cheese and makes it melt easier, otherwise, you'll get pretty dark crusts by the time the broiler melts the cheese! Good luck and Good Eating!
