Vegans At The Meat Market

Just because a market focuses on meats, does not mean it has to be avoided in order to buy produce. While I understand the opinions of many in the global vegan community who might disagree, hear me out. Where I live, there is a nearby small market with such a focus. It has “meat market” […]

Veganniversary – 2 Years Later

Two years a vegan. Many days are heart-heavy. Thoughts slip in and out of the unconscionable slaughter and suffering that takes place every day. Every minute, every second… And most of humanity does not realize it. Nor do they accept the reality when the facts and science is placed in front of them. The Amazon […]

Comforting Comfort Food

One of my favourite 7-course meals is a pan of roasted potatoes and a six-pack…. All kidding aside, comfort food during my teenage years was junk garbage. There were days when my friends and I would scrape together change we found on floors and in between furniture just so we could rip through a fast-food […]

Veganuary

In September of last year, I moved to a plant-based diet. Given the benefits I see in a short period of time, going back to a diet with animal products can never be an option. My story is one of many. This month there are sure to be more testimonials emerging from those who pledged […]

Vegan Eating and Better Living

Vegan Chili. I’m still not a major fan of beans, with a few exceptions.  Anytime I contemplate food in the here and now, there is a feeling of overwhelming gratitude. It’s a simple thing people take for granted. Never did I think moving to a plant-based diet would be so easy, and so enjoyable. This […]

Justifying Justifications

I can no longer justify something I’ve justified for too long a time justified. My diet for the last several years has overall been excellent. Far better than from my younger days when junk food ruled my food menu. Outside of what people would call junk food, my diet was meat, dairy and eggs. I’ve […]
