To Vegan Meat or Not Vegan Meat? That is the question.

atovegan_vegetarianplus_citrus-sparerib2

Oh, the conundrum. Not really. It’s really a no-brainer, literally —no animal brains were consumed during this post. I decided to write about this because we love to eat and we post a lot of food reviews, most of them including some product or dish with a vegan meat or dairy analog. Occasionally people will ask us why we eat vegan versions of typically animal-derived foods.... Read More

What Kind of Vegan Are You?

Duck, duck, goose...

Conflict occurs in our daily lives and it’s inevitable. I’ve been thinking lately of the question of the “kind” of vegan I am because of a recent conflict in our supper club. I’ve also been busy editing my first novel and haven’t been writing for this blog, which made me think ”What kind of vegan am I for not trying to spread a message of compassion every chance I... Read More

The Dreaded Office Holiday Party

Dreaded Office Holiday Party

Every year I dread our holiday office parties, since I am the only vegan. Our CEO loves to eat steak, so we are forced to always pick a restaurant that serves it. Last year we went to a local hotel and my vegan entrée was pasta with tomatoes on top. There were no appetizers for me to eat because they all had meat or dairy in them. My dessert was excellent—it was five different... Read More

Is being vegan extreme?

Is being vegan extreme?

I have heard this argument from people who defend eating meat. I don’t think veganism is extreme at all. What is extreme is feeding grain to cattle to make them sick and then using medicine to fix the problem. It is extreme to feed cattle 5 pounds of grain to get one pound of meat. It is extreme to feed 50% of U.S. grain to animals while 800 million people around the world suffer... Read More

My First Year As A Vegan

Chickens4_8-7-11

In my first year as a vegan, I feel as though I’ve learned a tremendous amount about myself and about other people. As I’ve heard many people say over the year, there was a time in my life when I never could have imagined myself living this lifestyle—but then again, I really had no idea what that even meant! I think I’ve proven to myself that following my heart and instinct... Read More

We’re the Radicals

Cow at Farm Sanctuary

Is it me or are there more stories on the web lately about “reformed” vegetarians and vegans? My definition of reform must be different than others, as I’ve always thought of reform from another perspective (you know, beneficial change). As I’m always interested in words in general, I looked up reform in my trusty online dictionary (yes, I still use the hardcovered one too)... Read More

My vegan holiday tradition

Gluten-free snickerdoodles

Holidays usually come with family traditions. One of my family traditions is baking cookies. I can remember being at my grandmother’s house up in the Poconos and waiting impatiently for a taste of her homemade sugar cookies, rolled out to perfection and molded into shapes with her old, metal cutters. Those were my absolute favorite cookies for many, many years until I started... Read More
