Your Thoughts Thursday: Non-Vegan Companies

May 20, 2010

Obviously, as a vegan, you’re not going to go out and spend your dollar on a cheeseburger.  But what about buying a vegan meal at a place that also sells those cheeseburgers?  I’m not talking about contamination; It’s about the dollar.  Imagine it’s 100% guaranteed the meal is vegan, and every measure has been taken…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Influence

April 22, 2010

Happy Earth Day!  Stereotypically, the vegan community tends to be a more tree eating hugging crowd, but there is one school of thought both vegans and eco-enthusiasts have to overcome.  “One person can’t make a difference.”  Many people maintain this reasoning as they guzzle down their soda and toss the aluminum cans in the trash…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Pre-Vegan Possessions

April 15, 2010

Most of us weren’t born vegan.  In fact, many of us didn’t even find vegan until 15, 20, 35, (50?) years into our lives.  And if there’s one thing that comes with that many years of life, it’s stuff.  Things.  Most people in our society don’t even think about their “stuff” being vegan or nonvegan,…

In a vegan utopia, we could all have the same delicious, healthy vegan food available to us when we’re out in the world as we do in our own homes.  The thing is, life is full of adventures, outings, and mixed company, and no one wants to miss out on any of it!  Dining out…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Facing Confrontation

March 18, 2010

We all know that vegan isn’t the majority, but I continue to be surprised by the reactions I get when people find out I’m vegan.  I have to admit, without even discussing the ethics, I have found that generally people are very defensive about their food and offensive about others eating differently than them.  I’ve…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Receiving Gifts

March 11, 2010

I figure that I spend enough time filling the internet with my thoughts and opinions, so the least that I can do is dedicate one post per week to asking for yours!  Besides, I love conversation and I’m hoping this is a way to trick get you all to  converse with me.  The questions can…
