There are elements of my nights that I love, but there are also things that I know need to be added or nixed. So, let’s start with what I’ve got going for me:  ::: skincare / when I was younger and first started having to take care of my skin I was awful at it. […]

There are so many amazing, delicious vegan dishes out there that are an elaborate work of art. But what about when you’re not feeling cooking, and want your food now?

More often than I thought I would, I hear friends tell me that they tried to go vegan for a little while, but they found that they were just hungry all the time. Constantly hungry? That sounds pretty painful and definitely not like something anyone should endure.

If you’re a vegan, you’ve almost certainly been asked—time and time again—the age-old question of, “Where do you get your protein?” If you are considering trying out a vegan diet, you may have concerns about the dietary implications of giving up animal-based protein sources.
