    What did you have for lunch?

    Chickpeas sauteed with onions and dandelion greens. Despite adding salt, smoked paprika, balsamic vinegar, and Vegenaise to this dish, the bitterness of the dandelion greens really stood out. :/ I think I like dandelion greens better raw in a salad. I also had some Kashi crackers, a handful of...

    Breakfast?

    Not really in a "breakfast" mood...I made a salad with mixed greens, a few broccoli florets, flax seeds, and a tamari ginger dressing. I also had whole grain seed toast with a little bit of this curry almond dip I had left.

    Vegans Going Crazy Over Oil

    Look I have respect for the fact that oil-free vegan cooking is a wonderful remedy for heart disease (the only diet actually shown to reverse rather than simply manage heart disease!) but this harping on oil being from the devil really has to stop now. "Blue Zones" are areas of the world filled...

    A little disappointed in cholesterol test results

    The American Heart Association firmly disagrees with you. So does the Cleveland Clinic.

    A little disappointed in cholesterol test results

    This is super dangerous. You could develop mental illness, blindness, or paralysis, or stroke and/or dementia as you age. Your body stores B12 for around 3 years. Some people may have stores a little longer, but it's often people who have been vegan around three to five years who start...

    What did you have for lunch?

    I'll be having left over pasta and some broccoli within the next hour.

    Breakfast?

    I actually made a real breakfast this morning! I made my 5 ingredient vegan pancakes with chickpea flour, then sautéed onions with balsamic vinaigrette to put on top, and used tahini mixed with water, lemon juice, and salt as my "syrup" instead of sweet stuff.

    What did you eat for dinner today?

    Haven't eaten it yet, but I've already prepared pasta with marinara sauce, garlic, mushrooms, Earth Balance and nutritional yeast. I also have a side salad with mixed greens (including some dandelion greens!), flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, and Balsalmic vinegar.

    Breakfast?

    My awesome super gross and trashy fave brekkie of vegan Top Ramen with Chipotle Tabasco. I even have a special ceremonial way of eating it, out of an Asian bowl with my black chopsticks. Ha ha ha.

    What did you have for lunch?

    Another serving of delicious cilantro rice, this time I put peanut butter mixed with cacao, almond milk, and maple syrup on my English muffin.

    Reducing plastic / living zero waste (help)

    I use handkerchiefs instead of tissues. The pasta/bread/rice issue can be solved by where you shop, but if you have nothing in your area, IDK. My roommate made "vegan butter" out of aquafaba and coconut oil with salt and probably something else, I can get the recipe from her. Be warned...

    Plastic free deodorant

    I use essential oils and baking soda. I apply a thin coating of an essential oil (frankincense, patchouli, orange oil, tea tree) then pat baking soda on. Do it every morning. If your skin is easily irritated you can combine it into a paste with coconut oil, but I find that to be really messy...

    Reality differs from the perceptual enclosure i grew up in

    Um, I'm having a hard time understanding what you mean. I know studying environmental science I've become emotionally exhausted because although animal agriculture is the second largest factor in climate change, and has recently been targeted as a number one concern by physicist Steven Chu in...

    Weakened body will tell you what is not good for you

    I dunno. A lot of times people who are drunk or who have hangovers crave eggs and/or cheese. The fat absorbs the alcohol, and there's something in eggs that helps your body metabolize alcohol. I never liked meat as a child, I thought hamburger was gross, that there were worms (veins) in chicken...

    Libido on a vegan diet

    I don't know, I think it's fairly obvious who is fake and who isn't, but I worry about young people. Teens.
