About Wonder Vegan
I started this blog as a way to showcase the foods I eat as a vegan. I am not a recipe-creator extraordinaire; I just love vegan food!
I started this path almost two years ago. At the tender age of 21, 6 months after I returned to the States from studying abroad, I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, an incurable disorder. I was a senior in college and had to find a job. I was looking forward to the rest of my life, yet my body felt like it was falling to pieces.
I tried being vegan on a whim, a 30-day New Year’s resolution goal to see how I would really feel. I had already given up dairy, and meat kept making me sick. However, vegetables scared me because they made me so sick, too.
Well, two years later, here I am. I am still battling IBS and I want to be a voice out there to young people who must suffer with this issue, thinking there is no hope in sight. When the government, doctors and even friends and family fail you, you have only one person — yourself. Never give up, because you will make it through.
And so the title of my blog. Well, I must confess … I am Wonder Woman. It’s not easy flying through the air & fighting off bullets with my bracers, but it’s all in a day’s work. Don’t worry, I keep Batman in line. =)
