Top 10 Reasons I STAY Vegan

Whoo-Hoo for me, and Happy Earth Day to all! I’m celebrating 10 years this month of having become a vegan! While I’ve alternated precisely what I’ve been regularly eating over these 10 years, there are some undeniable truths about why I have stayed vegan and why I will always be a vegan: I’m hardly ever […]

I love “The Starch Solution”–VIDEO

Dr. McDougall does it again! I’ve absolutely adored McDougall’s dietary advice. Using it, I’ve been drug-free for over nine years! I used to have more health problems wrong with me than I can even remember now. It’s truly been a miracle, and I swear to the world that it saved my life–literally. Yet…I’ve still had […]

Increasing Nutrition

Since becoming a vegan over six years ago, I’ve been highly enjoying a more alert life. I recently had a physical and while I’m healthy, I’ve decided it’s time to step it up a notch.  While I’ve learned to strongly dislike counting calories, I’ve been journaling my food intake for over a month now, looking […]

Going Lowfat Naturally (Plus Vegan Brownie Recipe)

I’ve been inspired to eat a 100% McDougall friendly vegan diet again.  For the past month, I’ve kept my total fat grams to 10 or less a day.  I’ve added no fat to my foods (such as vegan butter, etc.), but have allowed for small quantities of naturally occurring higher fat foods, such as nuts […]

Make Mine Vegan this “Meat Out Day” (and every day)

Monthly Vegan Newsletters I LOVE

More and more of my information is coming to be electronic these days.  While I LOVE VegNews magazine and PCRM’s Good Medicine ( both in print), I read the following free online newsletters from beginning to end each month.  If you are wanting to improve your health, learn about new dietary research and get great […]

If your reading material is in the bathroom, there is something wrong with you.

Constipation. So this isn’t a fun topic, but I’ve had it brought to mind multiple times recently by people who commented (to me) that the only way they could get their (older) kids and/or their significant other to read something was to put it in the bathroom.  American bathrooms are often considered “reading rooms” these […]

Have your say: Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010

Development of the HHS’s and the USDA’s new Dietary Guidelines for Americans is underway for a release of 2010.  These guidelines are reissued every 5 years.  Since many of us health conscious people are disappointed in the 2005 (current) guidelines, we should be thrilled that they are allowing comments from the public at large (as […]

Is Your Cheese Vegetarian?

Yes, I am a vegan and the following information doesn’t apply to vegans. But, I feel it is important information to get out there. 🙂 Dairy cheeses aren’t necessarily 100% from cow milk, therefore they aren’t necessarily vegetarian-friendly. Since many people find it easiest to incorporate a 100% vegan diet over time, you need to […]

VEGAN RECIPE: The BEST Carrot Cake Ever (Guest Post)

Carrot cake is my absolute favorite kind of cake.  Problem is, I’ve only had one great one since I became vegan (although I’ve tried a bunch).  So, as a birthday surprise my daughters and husband made me a homemade carrot cake.  It was, by far, the best carrot cake I’ve ever tasted.  It is dense […]
