Vegan Pets -Not just dogs and cats

A group for discussing, explaining and promoting vegan pet food.For a vegan world it is absolutely imperative to transition our companion animals to a cruelty free diet.Why should a cow grow up suffering and dying miserably for the sake of a companion animal? Why should the oceans be trawled and killed for fluffy? There can be no justification for this behavior, the consequences are real and the suffering is real.If you scroll to the bottom of this page, or click the below links, you will find…See More

As a former binge eater, this lifestyle is pretty suitable for me--I don't find it difficult to eat heaps of food. I have trouble some days keeping the fat super low. My goal is more 90/5/5. I struggle with dry, itchy, flaky scalp currently so I am upping my water intake and making my smoothies with more water, too.

Biotin and Dandruff

Posted on July 22, 2014 at 12:37pm 4 Comments

Seems that biotin deficiency is a major cause of dandruff in some people. I, I fear, just might be one of those people.

Some of the folks here on 30BAD know that I have struggled with pretty infuriating dandruff and dry, itchy scalp since adopting this lifestyle about 9 months ago. I mean, I'll go about a day without showering which is NOT a long time for me, considering I dislike showering, and my scalp will be positively festering with horrible, itchy flakes that fall all over my…


I Have a Small Problem

Posted on May 28, 2014 at 9:27am 7 Comments

Hello peepers!

So I have a problem.

My problem is I can't NOT respond to trolls on YouTube. I like, have to respond.

I always respond gracefully, tactfully, always offer resources and links. I don't care if they are mean or they curse at me or tell me I am brainwashed or full of sh*t or peddling propaganda. I always have to respond kindly.

Does anyone else feel this way? On one of Freelee's older videos I just had to say something to some of these people who were…

I Started a Blog on Wordpress

Posted on May 23, 2014 at 9:25am 0 Comments

Hello banana bandits!

I find myself having more and more to say about vegan health and especially vegan philosophy.

But no amount of kindly, informational trolling on YouTube or Instagram can slake my lust to write and explain everything I have to say.

So I started a blog.

www.drunksprout.wordpress.com : "Drunk on carbs, high on sprouts!"

I hadn't found the words I wanted to read anywhere online, so I…
