Easter Holiday Eats

Taking a trip back home usually means two things, too much food and too much alcohol, both of which have been true this time! Since coming home, I have eaten out at least once a day, which, even as a vegan hasn’t been difficult at all. For lunches, Pret a Manger was my favourite option,…read more

You’re vegan? OMG what do you eat?!

Pretty much every time anyone learns I’m vegan, the response is the same. I think its often difficult for people to understand the vegan diet, as up until recently, I feel its been a bit of a taboo subject. Where do you get your protein? Aren’t you deficient in calcium? What about bacon? Truthfully, since…read more

Vegan Contraception

I’ve been vegan for over a year now, yet it wasn’t until a couple of months ago that I actually looked into contraception. I was on and off the pill for about 3 years, and until last month had been on it for a year and a half straight. Then, I learned that it contained…read more

The Psychology of Eating Meat

While as a society we care for and love animals, many choose to eat them too. This dilemma has been coined as the ‘meat paradox’ and many scientific studies have been undertaken to see why humans feel it is acceptable to eat some animals, but not others. Dogs and cats are considered members of the…read more

The Vegan Kind: February

It’s that time again! Today my two vegan kind boxes arrived, one of them the lifestyle box and the other the beauty box, and they did not disappoint!
