Welcome to Veggies & Vinyl, my food and music blog dedicated and steeped in my love of music and plant based recipes. Music is my passion, being vegan is my lifestyle. As a fan of food blogs I’ve noticed than many lean towards health consciousness, organic food, and a positive mindset. While I truly appreciate these blogs for what they have to offer (meaning that I look at them daily) I want to come at this from a different angle.
I’m more of a “glass is half empty” kind of person in general. A pessimistic vegan, if you will. I love dark humor and I’ve been eating meat free for most of my life. I went off meat in high school to be rebellious! I was raised on alternative music (note: the title of this post is a line from Rage Against The Machine’s “Guerilla Radio”) and I wanted to apply those ethics of individuality in all areas of my life.
At this point in my life I have become a vegan, a husband and father, and aspiring blogger. My life is very hectic with two little boys under three and one of our biggest challenges has been trying to figure out what kind of healthy foods to give these guys. It is extremely important to me that I teach them to eat healthily and give them a different perspective on food than I was initially raised with. This blog represents the beginning of the story of my life now. I’m throwing it all out there – goals, achievements, struggles – and first and foremost recipes that will please anyone and make feeding yourself and your family less challenging.
