Meatless Marathon Mastery

“But how do you get enough protein?” This was asked of me as I tackled the 15th mile of the Chicago Marathon. Seriously. Gene, a 45-year-old recreational runner from Wichita, had become my best friend about nine miles ago.

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 […]
