Both of the older girls have experimented with their food choices over the years. I can remember the first time Emily decided to eat vegetarian. She basically removed meat and replaced it with meat substitutes. I don't think she was a fan of meat substitutes but it was an easy thing to do.
This past year, Emily has gone back to a vegetarian lifestyle and it has become less about healthy eating and more about responsible living. Kaylin came back with her summer of cooking for tree planters where there would be a revolt if they didn't serve some kind of meat, and has decided to eat vegan. For her, it seems to be a desire to eat healthy.
Both girls have introduced us to delicious food and recipes. Last night Kaylin treated us to Black Bean- Red Lentil Burgers. They were so good. She also made a quinoa salad which was unique tasting but so yummy. Peter wanted seconds and even thirds.
