Up until two months ago, I was one of those people who swore that butter was my lifeblood and that I would absolutely die without cheese. My favorite thing to cook was pulled pork in the slow cooker, and my husband had just perfected sous vide steak. Then, in an afternoon, I decided none of that was for me anymore. I didn't find out I had an allergy to dairy, and I didn't have any health scares to encourage me to avoid meat. No, I watched a YouTube video, and bam — I was a vegan.
