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
Last year, Fargo and his two pasture mates had crumbly, scabby skin after a long winter of snow, rain and heavy blankets. The owner of the other two horses thought it was mites and dusted her mares with a chemical smelling powder. Looking at Fargo's beautiful big brown eyes, though, I couldn't bear to coat… Continue reading Natural And SAFE Rain Rot Treatment
I follow a lot of vegan Youtubers and bloggers and although I enjoy their content, I'm often horrified at the cost of their acai bowls or raw cheesecakes. Everyone knows that eating raw, mostly raw, or even just healthy vegan can be expensive, but I was really disappointed to see one of my favorite Youtubers… Continue reading ACTUALLY Cheap Vegan Living
Dear Paleo People, it's your friendly neighborhood vegan here. Before you jump at me pointing to your testimonials and canine teeth, let me tell you something. I used to be one of you. For at least two years, I was a huge follower of countless Paleo (or similar to Paleo) writers. I filled notebooks with… Continue reading Dear Paleo People
Yesterday marked the halfway point for my family's vegetarian month. No one has complained yet. After egg'n'cheese breakfast sandwiches instead of egg'n'sausage and plain cheese pizza instead of pepperoni, even our days out and about have been fairly easy. My ten year old brother told me he feels like he's been eating meat all month,… Continue reading Vegetarian Family UPDATE
Pizza cravings. My brother was rolling out a doughy, white crust; full of eggs and gluten and sugar but smelling yeasty and amazing. He spooned savory tomato sauce on top, sprinkled a mix of cheddar and mozzarella. My stomach growled. It's not that I crave animal products - at all - anymore. But sometimes, I do… Continue reading Garlic Broccoli Pizza |Vegan + Gluten Free
Now that the days are getting warmer, I've definitely been craving some cooler breakfasts. Instead of oatmeal or home fries, I've been enjoying a lot of smoothies, banana ice cream and, of course, my favorite - chia pudding. Chia pudding is amazing for a lot of reasons. Chia seeds are high in protein and healthy… Continue reading Overnight Apple Pie Chia Pudding
I love my horse more than anything else on this planet. I also value my choice to be vegan and treat all animals with kindness. I keep seeing pictures and even blog posts popping up everywhere saying that horseback riding is the exploitation of an animal and therefore isn't vegan. And if I'm honest, that bothers… Continue reading Is Horseback Riding A Vegan Activity?
In my last post I talked about how difficult it can be to live a plant-based lifestyle in a meat eating family. I'm so grateful for my own family, who have been incredibly supportive of my decision to be a vegetarian and now a vegan. And when I say supportive, they've taken it all the way:… Continue reading My Vegetarian Family (For One Month)
