Epicurvegan, the blog, started three incarnations ago in 2006. It began as a means of activism through which I could show others that vegan food can be amazing, delicious, and plentiful. It has also been a way of showing that veganism isn’t as extreme or depriving as it’s often thought to be. One of the things I say most often to folks curious about veganism is that since becoming vegan I’ve eaten a much larger variety of foods than I ever did as a non-vegan.
Since coming to terms with my diagnosis of severe candidiasis in February 2011, I’ve decided to take Epicurvegan in a bit of a different direction. While it’s still all about the food, now it will be about creating mouth-watering vegan food free of sugar, gluten, and yeast. At first this seemed like an impossible feat, especially given the dearth of vegan blogs dedicated to what seems like a very restrictive diet. Instead, I’m choosing to view my new vegan diet as a fantastic adventurein which a bounty of fresh ingredients and loads of creativity will lead me to some very tasty discoveries.
