    World War V

    Wednesday, December 10, 2014

    It drives me up the wall when overly opinionated people feel the need to tell me what I should and shouldn’t be eating. Not once have I ever asked a friend or family member for diet advice. When I’m looking for diet advice, I turn to the internet. Obviously.  Yet somehow I continue to receive a ton of unsolicited diet advice on the regular. Go figure. Many people in our society do not accept veganism at all. And because of that they feel the need…

    How Long Should It Take To Convert?

    Friday, November 28, 2014

    Of all the forums and blogs and documentaries regarding vegans I’ve come across, it appears that most true vegans once experienced that “a-ha” moment where something just clicked and their past life of consuming and using animal products was over in an instant. For myself, that obviously wasn’t the case. As I’ve made clear before, I am still not 100% vegan or vegetarian, despite giving up beef, pork and poultry over 5 years ago. (Seafood is currently the only animal flesh I consume).I would say…

    The Switch

    Sunday, November 9, 2014

    Having trouble sticking to your new diet? One of the biggest influencing factors on anything is your environment. The more temptations you are surrounded by, the more difficult it will be for you to reach your goals. This doesn’t just apply to diet, but anything which requires discipline.

I was living with family, who often pressured me to join them in eating…

Closet Meat Eater

Do you call yourself a vegan or vegetarian, yet continue to occasionally eat meat…in SECRET? How could you? What would your grandmother think?? I guarantee she would probably be thrilled. I imagine most people’s grandparents are not vegan, and if your relatives are anything like mine, well, they want you to eat what they eat! I know that when I’m trying to eat vegan, almost every single person in my life goes against me. This is probably one of the most, if not the most challenging…

When Your Family is in Denial Over Your Eating Habits

If you have eaten a certain way for most of your life and then decided to change your eating habits, you may have experienced some sort of backlash from your friends and family. I stopped eating beef, pork and poultry 3 years ago and mom still never fails to offer me a nice premium cut of steak whenever she’s preparing dinner for the family. “You don’t know what you’re missing…” is the typical phrase I hear. Well mom, actually I know exactly what I’m missing…

4 Ways to Get Your Friends and Family Into Vegan Food

I’ve said it before, no one likes a preacher. By that I am referring to someone to tries to push their beliefs onto others without invitation. I have come across many vegan preachers in my day, and honestly, they’re the worst. Guys, if you are one of them then you gotta give it a rest. Preaching about why your diet is better than everyone else’s is probably the quickest way to get people to dislike you. Now you may know that your choice of lifestyle…
