Your Thoughts Thursday: Vegan On Oprah

February 3, 2011

It’s been so long since I’ve done a YTT, and I really miss the conversation! In case you missed the episode or haven’t read one of the million other recaps, Oprah’s vegan episode consisted of a short slaughterhouse tour, a conversation between herself, Kathy Freston, Michael Pollan, and a Cargill representative, Kathy Freston taking one…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Vegans And Soy

December 16, 2010

Unlike anything else in the healthy eating world (and by that I mean just like everything else in the healthy eating world), there is mixed information on soy.  According to the soymilk box, soy is going to save our heart, our family’s lives, the world.  And much of the general public associates soy with “healthy”…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Mid Vegan MoFo

November 18, 2010

I was planning to go back to my usual topics for this YTT, but since everyone might be a little too exhausted from all that cooking, baking, and creating to think too hard, I’ve decided to go with something a little more MoFo.  This is my first Vegan MoFo and I’ve loved scrolling through all…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Vegan Advice

November 11, 2010

It seems counter-intuitive, what with all the “traditional” carcass this time of year, but the holidays definitely seem to be a popular time to go vegan. Perhaps it’s the compassion and love in the holiday air, or as Isa put it, “Maybe because that dead bird in the middle of the table starts to seem…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Vegan MoFo

November 4, 2010

In light of Vegan Mofo, let’s do a foodie YTT!  I’ve put together a quick “survey”, so  leave your answers in the comments section below or on your own blog.  Or if you don’t have replies for all of them, just pick a few!  If you blog your answers, be sure to leave me a…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Vegan And Dating

October 28, 2010

Love is a funny thing.  Some would even say you can’t chose love, it chooses you.  We tend to list our preferences in a mate without hesitation,  only to end up with someone who doesn’t even begin to fit the dream description.  So while it may be ideal to nest with another vegan, perhaps someone…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Vegan Children

October 21, 2010

Back in June, we discussed raising vegan children.  I’ve had quite a few people raise the discussion topic since that post, so I thought it would be a great time to revisit it.  Maybe last time you weren’t confident enough in your response to share it, perhaps your opinion has changed, or possibly you weren’t…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Vegan Guilt

October 14, 2010

My question today isn’t about right or wrong.  It isn’t about what, as a vegan, you should do or think.  Everyone has lines they draw, and chances are, no matter how far you’ve drawn your line, someone else has drawn theirs further.  I’ve known people who won’t get in their friends cars or sit in…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Your Vegan Questions

October 7, 2010

It feels like I’ve asked a lot of questions!  I love reading your thoughtful responses and I think many of you enjoy reading people’s comments also, even if you’re not feeling like commenting on that particular question.  Trust me, I could think of questions endlessly, but what I really want to know is what you’d…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Vegan Inspirations

September 30, 2010

There isn’t a plethora of “well-known” vegan role-models for people to look up to, and maybe that’s why we get so excited when someone famous goes “almost vegan”, but it nearly always turns out to be a disappointment when they give it up two weeks later, “confessing” the vegan diet nearly killed them.  And celebrity…
