Meat Free Mondays

Most people aren’t the “cold turkey” type.  We don’t like quitting our bad habits all at once.  This makes the transition from a S.A.D. (standard American diet) to a healthy vegan diet easy in the grand scheme of getting rid of unhealthy habits — it doesn’t have to happen all at once.  Every vegan meal […]

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 […]

Being a Macho Man

There are several U.S. commercials on television right now that are quite insulting to males.  They imply that men aren’t truly men unless they are meat eaters — and they imply that a man is more of  a man if he eats meat in extremely large quantities — daily, at each meal. Think this is […]

So you think you know: Agar Agar versus Gelatin

I don’t mean to be criticizing Steve Spangler so much, especially because I adore his company and experiments and all he does for kids and science.  However, his most recent e-mailed ad to me mentioned that agar was a beef product.  This, in fact, is incorrect information.  Note this misinformation on their “Growing Bacteria in […]

If you are looking for an interesting, funky, fun, and flavorful holiday present this year, consider giving the gift of chocolate. Verē Chocolate recently sent me a lovely sample of their vegan chocolates to review.  In awe, and honestly a bit of trepidation, we tried their unique flavors.  We’ve been enjoying them slowly, which has […]

Top 10: Reasons Why I’m THANKFUL My Family is Vegan

Continuing on the theme of thankfulness, here are my top 10 reasons (in no particular order) why I am thankful my family is vegan: No worries about animal product illnesses (Mad Cow, Bird Flu, etc.).  If you do eat meat, make sure yours is never undercooked! No worries about more serious diet-induced diseases such as […]
