If you’ve been following along with my journey, I went vegan back in 2013 & my life has blossomed in so many ways. The plight that non human animal face every second of every day is far worse than anything we humans can go through or even imagine. Once my eyes were opened and saw the truth & horrors of how these innocent, defenseless, peaceful beings are exploited chopped up and sold for profit I knew I didn’t want to be a part of any of that. In addition, the far reaching im
The world is changing for the better 🖤 The proof? This iconic American brand has invested into the plant based food market adopting to the demand for vegan foods like milk alternatives. They have launched their new Oat Milk in 3 Flavors. I was at my small, locally owned grocery store in philadelphia tonight & discovered this new item.

It’s disgusting and totally unacceptable for a cultured and educated society to treat animals like this. (It’s also scary to think we are capable of this behavior.) But now, after the tireless work of many pro-animal organizations over the last two decades, the last of Germany’s fur farms will be closing. This is a huge step in the right direction. via youtube Today, ei

Our latest installment of Quick Bites brings us to Bed-Stuy for vegan fare. (Photo by Scott Lynch/Gothamist) THE VIBE Toad Style has been open for about a year and a half now on Ralph Avenue in deep Bed-Stuy and, with its bodega-style awning, it looks similar to many storefronts around the city. There are two things, however, that make Toad Style different than most: 1. All of the food on the sandwich-and-sides menu is 100% vegan. There's also no soy allowed here, nor palm oi
and get this.. one of the owners is named ... Kale. This is awesome: A vegan butcher shop is now open in Minneapolis January 2016. The Herbivorous Butcher will sell prime cuts of “small-batch, locally-sourced, all-natural meat alternatives." Sibling owners Kale -- could it get any better? -- and Aubrey Walch say the shop is the first of its kind in the U.S. Their meatless menu items are made from non-GMO heritage wheat, but are said to emulate the taste and texture of meat.
