I’m JL Fields and I blog about my transition to a vegan diet and lifestyle at JL goes Vegan: Food & Fitness with a Side of Kale (my original recipes have been featured on Foodbuzz, BlogHer and Meatless Monday) and I am the editor of the community blog Stop Chasing Skinny. I serve on the board of directors of Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary and on the advisory board of Our Hen House.
What does this have to do with Restaurant Week? My husband and I — eleven year residents of Southern Westchester — dine out like it’s our job. Sometimes it feels like a job because while I am a vegan he is not; it is challenging to find a restaurant that pleases both the plant-based diner and the meat-eater. I look forward to sharing our experiences in “mixed” dining with you!
