10 Years of Love and Marriage through Food & Veganism

Last week Carlos and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary. We've been together for 17 years so far, since I was a wee teen of 18, so suffice it to say that we've been through so many adventures together. In last week's episode and post I hinted at the fact that I was going to completely embarrass him and record an episode that was a total declaration of love and that included lots of moments for him to turn bright red as he edited the episode. Sure, there's going to be a little bit of that today, but when I thought about how our story could be fun and also help you on your journey, I figured I should tell you our story through the lens of food, food traditions, and what happened when these two meat-loving-love-birds decided to go vegan.

This is going to be an untraditional episode, since we won't have our usual format of the post in written format. That means, I'm including some show notes and links (and photos of course!) below, but you'll have to listen to the episode to get all the scoop!

A visit from The Nomadic Vegan, lunch at Rayen Vegano and a beautiful spring wedding

Happy Monday everyone! This week was so exciting I can't even tell you. It was also crazy busy which is basically the translation of exciting around here. We had our hands full with recipe testing, editing, adding all the new features to our online program, plus we went to a very special wedding surrounded by friends and the most beautiful spring weather. They had a special vegan menu all set up for us and it was delicious! We were all dolled up as you can see. The bride who worked with Carlos at the hospital was so beautiful and happy, I have to tell you I'm a sucker for a good wedding, especially when it's of friends we care about so much.

That night we came home early and started setting everything up for a very fun Sunday. Wendy Werneth from the amazing vegan travel blog The Nomadic Vegan was going to be on set with us filming a few videos that are coming your way soon! It was the first time we've ever had a guest on set with us and I can't even tell you how much fun that was. You'll get to hear it in one of the videos, since we shot a scene in which everyone suddenly burst out laughing! Including Carlos behind the camera and Wendy's husband Nick who was also with us on set.
