Hello! My name is Ruth Lynn and I am a relatively new vegan. I recently became one after experiencing digestive issues. I was having difficulty swallowing and often times choked on meat that I ate. Very scary!!! When I went to the doctor, he told me that I had a Schatzki ring in my esophagus and I needed to have my esophagus widened. It was then, I decided that I needed to make healthier choices with regards to food and my lifestyle. After some research and reading about becoming a vegan, I dove in and never looked back!
So more about me… I live on an island in the smallest state, Rhode Island! I love to be social and go out to restaurants with my friends and family. Now that I am a vegan, it is a challenge to find items on menus that I can eat. What I found out is, if you ask to be accomodated, restaurants are happy to do so! If you live in Rhode Island, I will be highlighting restaurants who cater to vegans and have made me the happiest!
I live with my husband, Jay and my dog Maryann. She is a pug mix and full of life! She really misses her sister Ginger who passed away a few months ago. I have a grown daughter who is the light of my life! She lives nearby so we visit every chance we get.
My passion is being in my kitchen and creating new vegan meals for myself and others. I love to take old “non-vegan” recipes and “veganize” them! Sometimes I’ll bring my vegan creations to work and share with my co-workers. I know I have a hit, if they are at my office door asking for the recipe! Well, now that you are here, I’ll enjoy sharing recipes and tips with you too!
