Are ALL vegans university drop outs and hippies or do we simply know better?

Hello. So I made a Tumblr post earlier today and thought about posting it here, it seems very relecant after thinking about it for a while. I do ramble a lot but if you are vegan for ethical reasons and believe in creativity you might geel a little of what I felt whilst writin this, I kind of found out my purpose in this community.

As I grew up, attending school as it was expected from society, I had teachers encouraging me to follow my “passion” – whatever that may be – but to find… Continue

Just A Cuppa Tea? Or Radical Simplicity.

He swooped down suddenly and grabbed a piece of plastic litter off the ground. Jabbing at the logo with his finger he said, “See, even this here, all this dye, this all comes from an industrial process in a factory somewhere. It takes chemicals to produce, water, resources, not to mention the petroleum to make the bag itself and all that is involved with that. They have to take materials…

Hey all! I wanted to share a problem of mine, which I hoped would be solved with veganism, but still hasn't been solved.

Last year I lost my period, because of my eating disorder. I know, I'm getting quite personal already. Then it came back in October last year, just for a few months and then it was off again in January. In May I started to become interested in veganism, because at the time I didn't feel well at all. I just didn't feel the happiness I hoped to feel, for example when… Continue

Born Vegan

I'm not going to lie, going Vegan was easy for me. The physical transition away from animal products was solid. Like boom, your Vegan! Meat dairy eggs and fish, won't ever touch my fork again. I don't even like sharing a fridge with a meat eater. If pork belly so much as nudges my vegan shelf there will be tears. Socially there are epic challenges and I'm fighting painkiller addictions with frozen peas under my Beanie. It's not a legit headache cure but I am determined to detox and let food be… Continue

Hello my name is Samantha and I want to talk about what I want to accomplished. 

My whole life I had a fast metabolism and was always skinny. I never had to worry about gaining weight, instead my parents always had to make sure that I was eating because I was "never hungry" or in other words I just didn't realize I was.

I was always skinny shamed when I was younger and I just ate when I was bored but would always find junk food! My parents made sure we never had sweets but I…

My first Jackfruit & How to ripen if you prematurely cut open

To my surprise, the grocery store I frequent started selling Jackfruit. Apparently because I had not been to the grocery store in weeks, I didn't realize the store had been selling them for weeks now.

Of course once I saw the sign for the jackfruit, I was…

BIG FIG HARVEST (September through October)

In the photos are the Chicago hardy fig variety, which produces purple skinned fruits with a red jam-like texture inside. The taste is similar to Apricots, Plums, and Peaches. They will grow from little, green nubs then be triple their size overnight. 

Refer to my previous posts of fig harvests so far this year, here:  …

Why You Must Balance Effort And Rest On Your Path

All work and no play leads to burn out.

All play and no work leads to a sloppy life.

Balance is key to progression on your spiritual path.

I think most of us can say we intellectually understand this. But when we look around at our world, we tend to see people in one of two camps:

Either you are the balls to the wall type - practicing…

New Video! The Truth Behind The Love What Arrises Teaching

Loving what arrises.

Loving your negative emotions. Your negative thoughts. Your self destructive behaviours. The things that do not go your way in life.

This sounds like a beautiful teaching, doesn't it? 

But maybe it also sounds like the person who is able to do this also rides a unicorn to work, has literal angel wings on their back and can turn 1 loaf of organic…

Planting Greens for Fall garden

About a month ago, I planted lettuce, swiss chard, endive, carrots, radishes, peas, and arugula in the hugelkultur garden. Of course for the last month I have noticed foot prints, a rabbit droppings everywhere, and then finally I saw the peter cottontail running out of the garden the other day. So, I was wondering why all my plants were being eaten and the seeds were also being dug up.

Almost none of the thousand seeds I planted within the hugelkultur mounds have germinated and…

A Meditation For Dissatisfaction :)

It's meditation time, friend :)

In my last video, I shared with you how dissatisfaction can be your best friend.

We talked about how dissatisfaction can be the catalyst that drives you inside - rather than outside - so that you can truly discover what is next for you on your life path.

We talked about how dissatisfaction is really a signal that you have outgrown your current life, and are ready to step into something new, something fresh, something that carries you to…
