Nadine Fiedler is a writer and editor in Portland, Oregon. An omnivore, she nevertheless appreciates aspects of a vegan diet. Her mission: Eat vegan for a two weeks, using recipes from the new book Veganomicon. She’ll blog a review of the book — and tales of her temporary veganism — here.

In my case, I chose to see if diet could work instead of medication, and it did.
