Random Happenings in the Life of The Veggie Guy

So, yeah, I've been absent for a few weeks now. I'd like to say that I've been working on new vegan recipes, but the truth is, I've been heavily focused on some other things. Here's a quick rundown of what's been going on:

  • I recently migrated my 6 Figure Blogging Strategies blog to Wordpress (sorry Blogger). The blog is quickly gaining popularity, so I figured I needed to take care of this quickly so I could make and correct all of my Wordpress blunders before too many people noticed. The new address is, if you'd like to take a look. (And feel free to subscribe to the RSS feed, if you'd like to learn how to effectively monetize your blog.)
  • The Job (TM) is rapidly coming to a close. It's really kind of a relief, especially since I have so many other things going on right now. Between copywriting and blogging, there's little time for things that don't further my personal/professional objectives.
  • Aria has started ballet classes. It's a big time commitment, but to me, it's well worth the effort. I'm very happy to see that she's tackled ballet with enthusiasm and determination. She wants to take Tae Kwon Do too... we'll just have to work on fitting that in.
  • My wife is embarking on a career change - from insurance to nursing. Glad to see her getting back to something she's passionate about - it certainly makes for a happier life.

So there you go. The pieces are all starting to come tigether, so I plan to try out some new recipes very soon. Thanks to everyone who stuck with me through this unannounced blogging hiatus... I'll be catching up with your blogs in the coming days.

Samantha Ettus Interviews Food Writer/Television Personality Mark Bittman

Here's a video of an interview that I found particularly interesting. As you know, the purpose of The Veggie Guy is to offer healthy vegan recipes that can be prepared in 30 minutes or less. Ok, so I don't always hit that 30 minute mark, but that's the goal.

Anyway, Mark Bittman is a well-known food writer that focuses on simple, fast cooking. This interview is well worth watching if you're looking for ways to get meals on the table quickly.

As a vegan who is leaning toward raw foodism, I really appreciated his comment early in the video that "Everything you cook, you eat... but everything you eat, you don't necessarily have to cook."

Well said!

Anyway, here is the link to the video. Enjoy!
