A Proggy!

I am humbled and honored to report that PeTA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has presented me with their annual Proggy Award for "Blog of the Year".

I was so shocked I started to cry like some kind of online Ms. America.

Thank you, PeTA! And thank you to everyone who visits the Vegan Lunch Box to see what's for lunch!

And well deserved it is! I love your blog and I'm not even a veggie. But I'm eating more meatless meals b/c of people like you and what's more, I've bought my own Laptop Lunch Box. I've packed it for its very first trip out to work tomorrow!

Ashlee said...

I got goosebumps for you!! Like Arline said...It totally is amazing what one little ripple can do...I am amazed and excited by the number of people who comment (and I'm sure the hundreds more who visit) daily...And now that number is only going to multiply! Congratulations on your wonderful recognition, and may this path you have set yourself on bring you many more rewards in life...The best of course you are already experiencing through the caring and compassionate son you are raising, who from the sounds of it will follow in your trail-blazing path.

Karen Anne said...

Well deserved. I know you must put in a tremendous amount of work on this. Think how great that award will look on your cookbook :-)

la tea dah, someone (hint) shoud call the Tri-City Herald.

c squared said...

I am so proud! I stumbled upon your blog after recently going vegetarian- working towards becoming a vegan. I even added a link to my blog (no one visits as of yet-i just started). This serves as inspiration and I have every intention of raising my future children as vegans.
Congrats and best of luck! See all that good Karma is coming back to you!

A little ripple here--I'm not even vegetarian yet, much less vegan, but my husband and I are making baby steps and I visit your blog regularly for ideas. I'd say we are 80% vegetarian now. This blog was part of my motivational speech for us making positive changes in our diet (i.e. "See, honey, it doesn't have to be weird--I can even make cool lunches for the kids). Thanks for the ideas and hopefully we will be joining you one day soon in the world of the fully converted!

SusanV said...

That's terrific! You really earned it!

La Tea Dah said...

>>>la tea dah, someone (hint) shoud call the Tri-City Herald.

Done! I just called the Food Editor and I'll be watching the newspaper to make sure they follow through! :)

Awesome! Your blog is great because you lead by example, not so much to ask of anyone who wants to make a point to the world.

MommaSchell said...

You rock! A well deserved award to you, at-home mother who leads by example! We need a million of you (or more!) in the veg movement! You are doing something right...

Carla said...

Your blog has inspired me so much! DH's co-workers are always asking about the "fancy lunches" his wife packs for him... and I get all my ideas from you!

Nicole said...

Fantastic news!! You truely do deserve it. You are an inspiration and so dang funny!! A daily routine I have started with my five year old is to show him your sons lunches, slowly he is starting to lean more towards veggies. he even said he was a "schmoo" the other night while eating some carrots and Hummus, YEAH!!! I am so happy for you!!
