    The Switch

    Sunday, November 9, 2014

    One of the biggest influencing factors on your diet 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. For the past several months I have been living in an environment where I was surrounded with unhealthy food choices at all times. I was living with family, who often pressured me to join them in eating less than optimal healthy foods. Yes,…

    Vegan Before 6 – Is it Bullshit?

    Monday, September 2, 2013

    There has been plenty of controversy latterly surrounding Mark Bittman’s new book Vegan Before 6, especially within the vegan community. Mark is a columnist for the New York Times and in his book, he credits his wait loss and overall health to following a simple, yet effective set of rules. He sticks to a vegan diet every day until 6pm, where after that it’s pretty much anything goes, within reason. Although the cover of the book states “Eat Vegan Before 6 to Lose Weight and…

    Closet Meat Eater

    Monday, August 19, 2013

    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 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…

How to Successfully Flip to a Vegan Diet

Any time that I feel I need a little extra motivation in my journey towards veganism, I go online and watch some sort of factory farming video. This may seem a little messed up, but reminding myself of exactly what happens to the meat we consume before it is served at the table is just so appalling that I am instantly turned off of consuming any animal products. A few years ago I lived entirely on my own, which meant that all of the food…
