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.

The Most Delicious Lemon Bars

By Mike Sasaki

Some like their desserts with chocolate and others prefer vanilla...and some like both. I fall into the last category, I like both. Although, I like lemon bars the best. Chocolate and vanilla are fine, but lemon bars offer something different. Fruity desserts are the best and a hint of butter is a delicious addition. I could easily finish 5-10 lemon bars in one sitting.

There is nothing better than homemade lemon bars. Surprisingly simple and predictably delicious. You can find lemon bars at coffee shops or dessert restaurants, but you can'f beat homemade desserts...especially, lemon bars. Follow a couple easy steps and you'll find yourself with a bunch of delicious lemon bars within an hour.

Step 1 - Purchase all the ingredients needed for your lemon bar recipe. You probably have most of the ingredients at home, but if not, it's a quick trip to the store.

Step 2 - Here is the easy lemon bar recipe for awesome

Easy enough, right?! Also, if you have a special person you'd like to impress with a real nice dessert, this is the best recipe for that. Even if you want to say thank you to somebody in a nice way, just give them some homemade lemon bars. I've also noticed that if you make a great dessert for one girl, they'll tell all of their girl friends and you'll be bombarded with requests to make them all lemon bars...not too bad for your social life!

Although this is a fruit dessert, you should be aware of the calories that come with eating lemon bars. When I make them, I try to cut back on the amount of butter I use. Most recipes require a stick of butter, which is definitely unhealthy and actually makes the lemon bar taste more like butter than lemons. In many cases, the chocolate or vanilla dessert will be easier on your waistline, but they don't compare to delicious lemon bars!

Good luck with these lemon bars and try out other lemon bar recipes in order to find the one that you like the most.
