Brian & Kelly
Brian has been eating a vegetarian diet of some shape or form for 25+ years and recently converted to a near-vegan diet. When not practicing folk music from Saint Kitts and Nevis on his double-bell euphonium, or searching for a mint condition copy of The Amazing Spider-Man #129, Brian enjoys sipping a nice glass of Cotes Du Rhone and searching out creative ways to gormandize meatless and dairy-free meals around Charlottesville. While in Austin, TX for graduate school, Kelly made the very unpopular choice to become vegetarian, and despite LOVING the smell of meat being grilled and bacon sizzling, she hasn’t looked back since. In the Fall of 2010, she and her husband Brian embarked on a new adventure…veganism. By no means has this been fun. I mean, come on…giving up melted cheese?? One would have to be crazy! A little crazy, yes, but all in all, she has found she feels great. Kelly is by no means a foodie in any educated manner but she is really great at eating. She believes food should be enjoyed, shared, and experimented with, especially with good friends. As she and her husband’s quest for healthy and delicious vegan fare continues, they hope you may be inspired to try something new as well.
