the voracious vegan's giveaway !

 I've mentioned Natasha on here a couple times before.  She happens to be an old schoolmate of mine from my days living in Dhahran, KSA. She has a fabulous blog titled The Voracious Vegan, where she shares amazing vegan recipes, beautiful photographs, and some bits and pieces of her life and loves.  If Natasha and I shared a city, I'd like to think we would be great friends.  Perhaps the kind of friends that have each other over for dinner - I guess what I am really trying to say is, I would love to be invited to dinner at Natasha's!

Natasha's blog has been recently recognized as one of the top 10 Vegan blogs by VegNews magazine.  Whoa!  Congratulations lady!  That is huge!!  VegNews has teamed up with this voracious little vegan to offer up a 1 year subscription to the magazine.  Pretty cool!  All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post.   And well, blog about it.  Like I'm doing right now.  So, fingers crossed that maybe I will be the winner of this giveaway!

Here's the comment I left.  It includes a little anecdote about my decision to become a vegetarian 15 years ago.  Whoa, 15 years ago!!?

congratulations lady! i would love to win this awesome give-away. i was 13 years old when i decided i could no longer eat meat. my mother was so worried about this decision- fearing i would suffer from low protein intake. she took me to an american doctor (we were living in Dhahran, KSA at the time). i still remember the dr. (his daughter, lacy, was in my grade). mom told the doc of my decision to be vegetarian, and was waiting for him to give me a lecture on the benefits of eating meat and what i would be missing out on. instead, dr. carruthers (sp?) gave me a high-five, told me he was a vegetarian, and commended me for making such an awesome and aware decision at such a young age. my mom and i still laugh at that story!
Here's Natasha to tell you about the giveaway herself:

This is awesome, Sarah, thank you! Good luck in the giveaway!

And how incredibly amazing are you? 15 years!?!? That is beyond fantastic. I so wish I had 'woken up' that early on, more power to you. And I'm totally cracking up imagining that scene in the doctor's office, how funny!
