All about Southern Vegan

Lynda in front of Spago Beverly Hills CA
My favorite restaurant in LA     

My name is Lynda Layman. I live in Ocean Springs, MS. I have a been a vegan for the last 2 years due to a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. My mission with this blog is to give a positive choice to defending a bad diagnosis from the doctor. Being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes was like a death sentence for me and instead of succumbing to the disease, I decided to fight it with all of my might. In doing so, I reversed the diagnosis one year later.

I am working on cleaning up the original blog as it was a way for me to let off steam and show my progress as I became accustomed to the vegan diet. I still miss cheese and right now am researching how to make my own with the same mouth feel I miss so much. I have also found when I limit some of the gluten in my diet that I feel better. This journey is one that I will be on for the remainder of my life and I see this working into some branding and cookbooks a long the way.  I hope you will join me on this culinary journey and step into the vegan lifestyle slowly and full force.
