Blog: Granddaughter of cattle farmer attempts vegan diet in the wheat state

By Melissa Short
As I bit into my first juicy, satisfying  meat-free soy burger I knew that this vegan experiment was going to be ok. As an omnivore I have always been fascinated by vegans and the things they go without-like macaroni and cheese.

I spent a few weeks eating nothing containing meat or animal products to find out what vegans eat, the creative ways they make meals, and what health benefits they might enjoy. I ate delicious meals, mediocre meals, and a whole lot of bread.

This blog is about a college student trying to eat vegan in a town known for burgers and Call Hall ice cream. There are recipe ideas, local restaurant guides, and honest opinions about each dish. Follow my journey from dairy-free cookies to veggie sandwiches and so much more.
