Wow guys. It has been forever since I updated. To be fair, I've been really busy. But that's no excuse! So, what's been going on in my life? I'm in college online. The first semester is almost over! I adopted a dog (more on that soon). And I've been running like crazy. As you can tell… Continue reading My First Half Marathon – Vegan Style!
In the world of vegan fitness, protein powders are hailed as a vital part of your morning smoothie. If you don't use a supplement in your smoothies, it can kind of feel like you're failing the whole workout regimen. I don't personally have anything against protein powders (in fact, I've been considering buying one), other… Continue reading Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Protein Smoothie|VEGAN| No Protein Powder
In October of 2016 I became a vegetarian after reading Diet For A New America by John Robbins. It was an overnight change, and, to be honest, I thought that was the end of it. By January of 2017, though, I realized that I was longing for more. I knew that cutting out meat wasn't necessarily the… Continue reading How I Transitioned To Veganism
It's a dreary day. Not exactly cold, just gray and rainy and definitely the kind of day that requires a chocolatey pick-me-up. And while I had frozen bananas and cocoa powder ready for precisely this kind of mood, something told me that plain old chocolate nice cream wasn't going to cut it. Surveying the counter, I… Continue reading Mexican Hot Chocolate Nice Cream
Recently my family and I went to a graduation party for a longtime friend. The party happened to be at an Asian restaurant, which, needless to say, made the vegan side of me slightly anxious. When we arrived, I scooped up the menu for the buffet and scanned it nervously. Immediately, I relaxed. Papaya salad,… Continue reading Fish Sauce
As cliche as it sounds, I am a vegan who is incredibly in love with smoothies. I could eat them three times a day. In fact, I have in the past: Strawberry Banana for breakfast, Mango Coconut for lunch, and a surprisingly delicious Savory Sweet Potato for dinner. Sometimes, though, looking at smoothie recipes, I get… Continue reading The “Waste Not, Want Not” Smoothie
I'm always looking for ways to use up juicer pulp. I've added it to smoothies, used it in cake and even fed it to our chickens. Today, though, when I made a carrot-cantaloupe juice for breakfast, a new idea popped into my mind. In the past, I've given my horses plain old raw juicer pulp… Continue reading ~Juicer Pulp 4 Ingredient HORSE TREATS~
April 30th marked the end of my family's meatless month. It hasn't exactly been a crazy journey. We eat less meat than the average family anyway, and it's not like ordering a pizza without pepperoni is a sacrifice for anyone. With the exception of my father attempting to sneak into McDonalds late one night,… Continue reading Vegetarian Family: The End
While veganism is an amazing lifestyle filled with a boundless variety of colorful foods rich in antioxidants and vitamins, it's well known that some supplements are a step towards perfect health. Before I continue, I want to make it clear that in no way does this mean a vegan diet is not a natural and… Continue reading Do Vegans NEED Supplements?
So many people believe that a vegan diet is unhealthy. When I first made my decision to stop eating meat and, later on, all animal products, people acted like I was doing something life threatening and irrational. I couldn't understand why. To put it in the words of one of my friends: "You're only eating… Continue reading The Proof Is In The (Vegan) Pudding
