i recently went from pescetarian to vegan, though it's not my first time around the bend. question: i get a lot of my protein through lentils and this vega one recovery protein shake - i keep a lot of orange juice on hand. what else should i make sure i always have on hand. -- on stock at all times: almond milk, orange juice, protein powder, peanut butter, lentils, chickpeas, and rice. HALP

What about all the other grains such as pasta, bread and potatoes? :) Not forgetting nuts and seeds, hummus (amazing for being on the go), couscous, yeast extract is good to have in for your B12, tofu and of course all the fruits and veggies! :)

I a have a friend who has a really small egg farm. Like he doesn't slaughter the chickens, just uses their eggs. I've actually visited the farm and all the chickens get to run around and they're all really happy, and you can tell that they've been treated well because they're so trusting of humans. I was sitting on the grass and one sat on my lap. So the chickens are really happy, and none of them are being killed or abused, so do you think it would be okay for me to buy eggs from here?

If you are going to insist on buying eggs, it would definitely be better to buy from your friend. However, I personally still wouldn’t buy these eggs. 

My reasoning:
The first is that eggs are unhealthy for our bodies and are heavy in cholesterol. I’d personally feel too anxious about my health to ever consume eggs again.

The second is the fact that technically, even though these chickens clearly have a wonderful life, it is still treating a chicken as property and using them for human gain and benefit.

The third is that these are the menstrual cycles of hens and that really doesn’t sit comfortably with me.

The final is that surprisingly, chickens need to consume these eggs themselves in order to regain the nutrients that has been lost in the process of laying them in the first place.

However, what you do is entirely up to you. I am purely vocalising my opinion.

Good luck :)

To that anon, how are we omnivorous? It doesn't even make sense that our bodies would be designed to eat stuff thats bad for us... even killing us. Meat is a survival food it is a last resort we're not designed to thrive on it. My cat can eat strawberries it doesn't mean that she isn't a carnivore just because she's capable of eating plant foods

hey, i was wondering about the meat/ dairy/ eggs/ etc. industries in the uk? you live here right? (correct me if i'm wrong) i also live in the uk but i've looked up a lot of stuff on the industries and all the horrible practices seem to be happening in the US. according to some of my family "free range" chickens really do mean free range here, not just "not in a cage" but i don't know how true that is. and stuff like that. so how badly are the animals treated here compared to the US? thanks :]

Hey lovely :) I, too, live in the UK and unfortunately- our farms are just as dismal. Maybe not in the same way but there are definitely some hideous truths to our farming industries. Check out this video but be warned- it’s graphic!!!

do you ever catch yourself saying a random string of words to your cats? Once I was talking to my dog and I stopped and realised I'd just been having a serious discussion about how beautiful certain celebs are and I've said so many other things to them and I was just wondering if I was alone

Only every day of my life! :’)
