This makes sense since it’s a huge part of our lives and a big change to make. There are endless reasons to make the switch to a vegan lifestyle, and especially to a plant-based diet. Health, environmental, and, most importantly, the sweet little animals who die for our consumption. I went vegan overnight after watching documentaries like What the Health, but others take time transitioning. It’s a big adjustment to make, so it’s understandable to slowly change the way you eat to align with your morals!Continue reading “9 Ways to Reduce Your Consumption of Animal Products”

SNACKS. You know what I mean? I don’t just love eating snacks; I absolutely rely on them to get me through the day! As a busy college student and part-time worker, I am constantly on the go. Snacks keep me going, but it’s important that they’re tasty and healthy.
To me, a healthy snack is one that gives you the energy and nutrients you need to keep going. While I don’t want to eat an excessive amount of calories, I don’t think calories are something to be scared of; we need them to fuel our bodies!

I love being vegan! Veganism is a lifestyle where you believe animals have rights, and therefore do not use or exploit animals for anything–food, clothing, makeup, etc. In a diet, that means I don’t consume meat, eggs, dairy, honey, or anything else derived from animals. However, I don’t feel restricted–I consume a large variety of other foods that leave me more than happy and satisfied. I love finding creative new ways to make meals or save money on groceries, so I thought I should share some of those tips with you!
