Cowspiracy – Fantastic Movie

cowspiracyMy wife and I just watched a great movie called Cowspiracy.  I thought I knew all there was to know about being vegan, but this film really opened my eyes.  This film is one that everyone should watch, not just vegans.

Homemade Toothpaste!

The idea of mhomemade toothpasteaking your own toothpaste might be a new idea for you but it is a great way to know EXACTLY what is in your toothpaste!  Normally, I would buy Tom’s fluoride free toothpaste.

Cook and Prepare in Bulk!

I know it can be hard to find time in the day to cook when you have a million other things going on. Yet, if you want to live a healthy vegan lifestyle, cooking is what you have to do. So the way I solve this problem is cooking in bulk!

These kinds of foods can last almost a week and still be fresh. I just sauté mine with some garlic and season them. Then, whenever I am hungry throughout the week, I can pick at my container of cooked veggies! Or, you can just toss them back onto a pan and re-heat them. Read more

I am sure you have all heard that you should wash your veggies and fruits before you eat them. Of course it sounds like a good idea, but sometimes people get lazy or simply forget to do it.

How many times have you gone to the grocery store and touched an apple to see how firm it was or picked up a head of lettuce to examine it? I do this all the time, and a lot of the time I put whatever I touched back because it is not what I was looking for. This means that the fruit and veggies you are buying have been touched by who knows how many people. On top of that, one can only imagine the germs that were on each of those person’s hands.
