The trials and tribulations of being a vegan nerd in the fishbowl that is high school

January 3, 2011
Welcome back to real life, friends! My holidays were lovely, yours? I enjoyed lots of fantastic veggie cuisine, even trekking to Cincinnati for some distinctive vegan food (but that's another post!) and preparing my own veg fare to compete with the meatier feast that my parents enjoyed. I received some lovely gifts, even a leather purse. Uh-oh. I didn't have the guts to tell the giver that I didn't do leather, but that's OK. It's the thought that counts. But alas, today was the dreaded back to school. I greeted the return to normalcy with a delicious, nutritious (vegan) lunch.
