I’ve mentioned before that Scott is a vegetarian. When we first started dating he was a vegan. It was seriously challenging to feed that man. Since then I like to think that I’ve upped my vegetarian cooking game. I am constantly trying to come up with vegetarian recipes that are unprocessed, free of grains and legumes and yet still full of healthy fats and proteins. It ain’t easy but I get it done.
