Vegetarian Means Vegan, Right?

Actually vegetarians tend to differ from what Vegans consider themselves to be. The exact reasons for why, evade me at the moment.

I eat plenty of vegetables but also enjoy eggs so I think this means I may be a vegetarian but I am not a vegan because eggs are not on their menu. I need to watch my calories and weight.

Veganism, if I may, seems to be more like a religion than just a healthy eating regime. I think the term is applied to not only eggs but even to wearing things that may have once been alive, like leather.

I have no feelings on this one way or another and think our life choices are just that, our life choices.

Delicious Hawaiian Macaroni Salad

By Mike Sasaki

There is nothing better than traveling to Hawaii and tasting their delicious Macaroni Salad. If you've ever been to a luau, you know how great their Macaroni Salad is and how quickly it disappears. And unlike a luau, this homemade Hawaiian Macaroni Salad can be prepared in less than 30 minutes. Add only 10 minutes to the recipe if you have to go to the grocery store to pick up a couple ingredients, but chances are you already have everything at home.

You probably already have all of the ingredients you need to make Hawaiian Macaroni Salad. And, if you have 30 minutes of time, you can make it very quickly for your family to enjoy. Don't sweat it though if you don't have all the ingredients. A 10 minute trip to the grocery store is all you need to pick up any missing ingredients and once you get home, you can turn on your favorite sitcom and by the time it's over, you'll have delicious Hawaiian Macaroni Salad for your family.

First, check your pantry because you may have all of the ingredients at home, already. If not, it's a quick trip to the grocery store, since there are only 6 ingredients needed.

Next, cook the macaroni pasta for 8-9 minutes and until it's tender. This is a very crucial step in making your Hawaii Macaroni Salad delicious.

Next step, cut and add the grated carrots, mayonnaise, and milk and coat well. Salt & Pepper should be added, as you like and to taste. You may choose to use more mayonnaise if needed or if desired.

Fourth step, chill in refrigerator until cold and when ready to serve you may want to add more mayonnaise.

The last step is to get creative and maybe add ham, peas, boiled eggs or tuna. Try out different additions and see what your family likes!

You will never try another Hawaiian Macaroni Salad recipe again. Your family will beg for this at least once a week and it only takes 30 minutes to prepare. This recipe is so easy and delicious that your family will be happy you tried this recipe.
