How to go vegan

How do you switch to a vegan/plant-based diet? This is a question I get asked a lot in real life and when recently someone asked me I realized: I’ve never written anything about this. That’s a sin, because such a post would be so convenient to refer these people to. This way I provide a detailled overview. So today it is finally a here: a guide on how to go vegan*.

Going vegan vs. stop traveling

Today I want to make a statement. Something that really goes for me and my journey towards a sustainable lifestyle. In general, I’d say living an eco-positive lifestyle is not hard (maybe I can’t say that just yet, since I am not there yet, but I am doing it anyway). However, there are some aspects which I find way easier than others. And so today I want to state: going vegan is way easier than to stop traveling.

Ethical reasons to not approve horse-riding

To start off: I am probably going to offend people with this post. Not that I am planning on it, but out of past experiences I can imagine it happening again. I’ve talked about veganism to people a lot over the past years and there’s one issue that I always get a lot of responses on. I have doubted to post this, but I still believe that different type of views should be shared and considered. Today I want to explain why I don’t approve horse riding or keeping a horse as a hobby.

Vegan ‘Egg’ Salad Recipe

I’ve been living a vegan lifestyle for about 2.5 years now. It’s been wonderful and I can’t imagine myself ever changing my diet again. Since I’ve gone vegan there are a lot more vegan alternatives for non-vegan products than before. Everything has become even easier! However, this does not mean that there is a substitute for every non-vegan product yet. And so today I am sharing a recipe for a product that can’t be bought vegan in the supermarkets just yet: ‘Egg’ salad. Continue reading “Vegan ‘Egg’ Salad Recipe”

Ethical reasons why I don’t consume eggs

A few weeks ago, I published on here why I don’t consume dairy. No yoghurt, milk, cream or cheese, since all those things are made out of milk. Today I want to elaborate on another products I don’t consume as a vegan: eggs. Alike dairy, this is something most people don’t understand. People ask me a lot of questions about it too. What about free-range eggs or eggs from the chickens in my own yard? I don’t consume any eggs, and here’s why. Continue reading “Ethical reasons why I don’t consume eggs”

Ethical reasons to not consume milk

I’ve been vegan for about 2 years now. All this time I’ve shared a lot about practical veganism. In our society it is unfortunately uncommon to be vegan, so practical veganism is important. But what’s even more important to me, is why I live vegan. As for the ethical aspects, the health aspects and the environmental impacts, I’ve never really discussed them. So today I want to begin with that, each time a different category and product. Today I want to tell you all the ethical reasons why I don’t drink milk. Continue reading “Ethical reasons to not consume milk”

2 Ingredient Vegan grilled ‘Cheese’ Sandwich

Maybe you’ve noticed that I am all about practical veganism. I write that I am vegan and how I live vegan, especially in my weekly diaries. This is all very practical. I am planning to write more about the why too, that’ll be soon! Yet, practical veganism is important too, because our society isn’t that vegan friendly. So for now, I have another practical part for you. Today I am sharing my favorite recipe for a vegan grilled ‘cheese’ sandwich with you!

Vegan and zero waste recipe: Quinoa salad

It’s May and that means summer is coming! Summer is my favorite season and after the past few weeks (it’s been up to 24 degrees Celcius here), I am excited for it!

So, today I want to share with you one of my favorite recipes of all times, a simple quinoa salad. Continue reading “Vegan and zero waste recipe: Quinoa salad”

Zero waste snack: roasted chickpeas

Snacking, I think it’s something we all do (even if you claim you don’t). I mean, who doesn’t love a sugary or salty (in my case) snack on a good movie night or get together with friends. I think snacks are essential! Finding zero waste snacks can be quite hard, if you’re tied to a ‘normal’ supermarket. But, there are tons of zero waste snacks out there and today might be just right for you. I want to share a recipe for roasted chickpeas! Continue reading “Zero waste snack: roasted chickpeas”

Vegan ‘tuna’ salad recipe

Now, this title might seem weird. A fake tuna salad? Why replicate tuna when I stopped eating it? Well, I have a lot of reasons to not eat meat or fish, which I will discuss below, but flavor isn’t one of them. Yes, I love the taste of fish too, I mean who doesn’t? But, for me it was not enough to still eat it. So, when I found out about this vegan ‘tuna’ salad I was eager to try it. I absolutely love it and that’s why I want to share it with you today.
