Environmental Reasons Against Meat Consumption

People ask me all the time why I am vegan. ‘Do you do it for the animals, your health or the climate?’ is a common question that I get. My answer is: ‘all of the above’. Over the years the reasons to stay vegan just seem to pile up, my drive for veganism only gets stronger. But it is true that I went vegetarian about 6 years ago for just one reason: the climate. It was the first thing that triggered me to change my diet. And since it was the thing that made me go vegetarian, I want to share more about it with you. So, today I am sharing more about the environmental reasons against meat consumption.

Vegan Taste Test: Brie and Shrimps

The past weeks I have tested two vegan products which are a little different from the things I normally buy. A while ago I went to visit de Vegabond in Amsterdam. A tiny vegan heaven. They serve vegan lunch and so you can sit in, but they also offer vegan products to buy. I didn’t have lunch but I did buy some of the products they sell to take home. After all, I bought quite a lot and I want to share a part of my findings with you today. I did a vegan taste test with brie and shrimps!

Vegan food diary for one week

Since I’ve gone vegan I get asked a lot what I eat in a day. It’s not a weird question, people who don’t eat vegan have no idea. It’s funny, nobody used to ask me what I eat before I went vegan! Somehow it’s mind-blowing to eat vegan and people want to know all about it. I get it, but of course I hope it’ll be the norm one day. When people ask me what I eat I just say I eat the same as then, only with a vegan alternative for animal products (which is true). But to make it more visual I’ve decided to share my food diary in one random week with you. For one week I’ll share everything I eat! So here it is: my vegan food diary for one week.

Everything about Animal Testing

This week I’m talking about a new subject concerning veganism. I’ve never talked about it before, but since I’m vegan now I really feel the need to. I first focussed on turning my diet vegan since that’s the most important at first. Today I want to talk about another part of veganism: animal testing. Don’t worry, I am not going to include horrible pictures, but I do want to inform you about these horrific tests.

Trying vegan cheese

When it comes to food, I love trying new things! I find it exciting to try new dishes (but the struggle in favorite restaurants is always real, should I try something new or go for my favorite dish?). New things can also be a little scary, because they can turn out disgusting too. You just can’t tell. The past week I tried something new: grilled cheese sandwiches with vegan cheese.
