Did Going Vegan Lower My Cholesterol?

So I told you last August I went vegan to lower my cholesterol.  Yesterday I had a biometric screening for my insurance- my employer requires it for me to get lower insurance costs.

But Don’t Take My Word for It…

Recently I blogged  about the health benefits of a vegan diet. Well, lo and behold, I get an email from Faunalytics (a research library for those of us promoting a more humane lifestyle) that includes an abstract from a position paper published by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics providing guidelines for helping vegans and vegetarians reach optimal … Continue reading

Vegans love candy too! And while it’s a poor nutritional choice, sometimes ya just gotta go there. After all, you’re going to be … Continue reading

Vegans Have a Stinky Secret!

Vegans look so happy, so healthy, and so content in photos.  But even those of us who refuse to eat anything with a face have our dirty little secrets. What is so rotten about vegan eating? It stinks! OK, so not veganism, but the gas you get from all those healthy veggies and beans does! At least, … Continue reading
