For the academic year I have decided to go vegan. Although partly for dietary reasons, I am doing it mainly for environmental reasons. Although when eating out it can be slightly difficult, it is quite easy at home, and rather good. I came home for the long weekend, and made some delicious food with my mom. I purchased some local organic mushrooms at a fair in Montauk, and bought tomatoes, onions, brussel sprouts and other food at the farm stand near my house.
