Well my friends, I made a huge mistake last night. HUGE MISTAKE!!! Yesterday was a tough day for me. It was Canada Day, but given the thousands of unmarked graves that have been uncovered at former residential schools across the country, we were not celebrating. We spent the day educating friends and family on the … Continue reading I cannot believe I did this!!!!! →
I honestly cannot believe it happened so fast. It has only been a few weeks since I have stopped eating meat and I hadn’t really even thought about eating any since I had gone vegan. In fact, it felt like the easiest thing to cut out right from the start! My partner, Andrew, still eats … Continue reading Steak brought me to my knees… →
So I am really getting the eating part down, and even though I have still been surprised here and there to find a non-vegan ingredient (namely butter) in some foodstuffs, I feel like I have a pretty good handle on that realm. So what’s next? What other areas of my world do I need to … Continue reading All Things Vegan →
It has been about 6 weeks since I started trying on the idea of living a vegan lifestyle. I started by cutting out the major animal product offenders in my diet: Meat and Milk. Then over the next 6 weeks I have cut out everything else… the cheeses, the butters and started learning and looking … Continue reading The changes are starting! →
I am soooo happy this morning because I feel like I have found the holy grail of breakfast options! But before I tell you what I made, let me tell you why I felt the need to make it. I have always been a sucker for a breakfast sandwich from a fast food chain, whether … Continue reading It’s a McMiracle!! →
So I screwed up yesterday, big time. The local outdoor pool finally opened and Andrew and I had reservations for 2pm! Yes, with the pandemic still somewhat kicking around, there is limited capacity at the pools, and you need reservations… Anyways, we both got up and did a good stretch to make sure we were … Continue reading Epic Vegan Fail →
The truth is, I used to put butter on EVERYTHING… and I always have. Even in non-stick pans, I would put a pat of butter. Roll with dinner? Pat of butter. Sautéed veggies in oil? Add a pat of butter once they hit the plate. When I look back on it, I can’t even imagine … Continue reading The truth about butter →
So the thing is, everyone talks about how great you’ll feel when you go vegan. I do not feel great. I feel tired, exhausted, fatigued! I have no idea if it has anything to do with switching to a vegan diet, but I am definitely not feeling that rush of energy everyone talks about! And … Continue reading Smoothie Fail! →
So this is going to be a bit controversial, I know… but like, a lot of the vegan recipes I am reading boil down to one of two things: Beans on toast, and mushy soups/stews. And sure, I am definitely generalizing there… but like in my quest to not be a junk food vegan I … Continue reading Same, Same, Same →
So here’s the thing… I have watched SO many documentaries about going vegan and they all cover the following aspects to some degree: animal cruelty, health benefits, environmental benefits, dissenting opinions from other educators/doctors etc. Great. They have all been great. And they were a tremendous help while I was making the decision to choose … Continue reading Recommendations? →
