5 Vegan Junk Foods to Avoid

1.) White Carbs Pastas, rice and bread can easily become staple foods for new vegetarians and vegans, but consuming too much of the white stuff can be dangerous to your health. These types of foods are heavily processed, cause bloating, spike blood sugar levels, and they lack fiber and other important vitamins. Healthier alternatives include […]

Help NYC Carriage Horses!

Legislative Update New York State Senator, Tony Avella, and New York Assemblymember, Linda B. Rosenthal, introduced the first-ever legislation (S.5013/A.7748) in the Spring of 2011, calling for a ban on horse-drawn carriages in New York City.

Tattoos are Totally Gnarly, Dude

Tattoos are edgy. Tattoos are cool. Tattoos are permanent. Sure, there are plenty of tattoo removal technologies out there, but generally speaking, they’re pretty darn permanent. I’m just a little hesitant about taking the plunge into that reclining parlor chair. Part of me is worried about a grotesquely sagging blob in my skin’s distant future. […]

Ordinarily, I run solo and wouldn’t dream of engaging in small talk during such a challenging […]

I am a self-proclaimed girlie girl. My naturally brunette hair has forcibly been transitioned into a shocking shade of blonde, I drive a ridiculously cutesy red car, I wear high heels everywhere, and I rarely leave the house without a healthy slathering of makeup. I was selected as Snowball Queen and the Most Photogenic girl […]

Lombardi launched into our weekend with a distressingly frequent pattern of vomiting, dry heaving, shaking, crying, and wooziness.

Captain of This Ship

My personal choices are not preordained. Neither are yours. As sentient beings, we make decisions based on conscious mindfulness in addition to our natural inclination toward self-preservation. Yet so many of us, myself included, categorize ourselves as people who are incapable of major change. Ethically minded veganism requires kindheartedness, commitment, bravery, and an active rejection […]

The Birds and The Bees (but no honey, please!)

Is it common for vegans to date outside of the vegan community? If so, are they attracted to vegetarians, pescatarians, or omnivores? How far does their compatibility reach? Surely a vegan wouldn’t date a cannibal…perhaps a cannibal who eats non-vegans to balance the scales…but it seems like a highly unlikely match. My presumption is that […]
