7 Possible Side Effects of Going Vegan Cold Turkey

I know that some people transition to a vegan diet slowly, but for me it was hard to see how I could keep eating animal products once I realized how wrong it was. So I went cold turkey, and I imagine you’re in the same boat. For some, going vegan overnight has huge side effects, […]

What is a Strict Vegan Diet? [Definition]

All vegans have their own personal definition of veganism, it’s not like there’s one person who invented it. The Vegan Society is the group that’s been around the longest, and here’s how they define veganism in general: Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms […]

8 Gifts that Vegan Athletes Will Love

Buying gifts for vegans can be pretty difficult. But if you know they’re an athlete, that can give you a few extra ideas of what to give them. I’ve come up with a list of gifts that I believe most vegan athletes would enjoy. I’m not going to list general gifts for athletes (e.g. blender, foam […]

Is Vegan Butter Healthy?

It’s hard to define a food as “healthy” or “not healthy,” but let’s give it a try for vegan butter. For this, we’ll consider healthy food to be nutrient dense, and contain no “bad” things like trans fats or sugar. Keep in mind that even if vegan butter isn’t healthy, most people don’t eat much […]

Can a Vegan Go to Culinary School?

Vegans and culinary school don’t go well together. Most “standard” culinary schools will compromise a bit with vegan cooks.

But as the demand for vegan chefs grows, there’s a slow shift in culinary schools happening. There […]

French fries are one of the few things in restaurants (fast food or otherwise) that are typically vegan. I looked up the ingredient information for the most popular fast food chains to see if they were vegan. The results are below. If I missed any restaurant you were curious about, just let me know in […]

Is Betty Crocker Cake Mix Vegan?

Many cake mixes in a box are “accidentally” vegan. They don’t contain any dairy, so as long as you use a vegan egg alternative and plant-based milk, you’re good to go. None of Betty Crocker’s cake mixes are certified vegan, or even clearly vegan, but some of the mixes may be vegan. I’ve gone through the ingredients for all the different mix […]

Is Cologne Tested on Animals?

Just like women’s perfume is often tested on animals, so is cologne. Animal testing isn’t required for selling cologne in most countries, it is for some – China is the biggest one. So if a cologne brand sells products in China, then they typically test on animals at least for certain products. Sites like Ethical Elephant are good […]

Omega 3 to 6 Fat Ratio of Seeds [Data]

After making a page about the ratio of omega 3 to 6 fats in nuts, it only made sense to do the same for seeds. I collected basic nutritional data for all the common seeds I could think of, and the results are just below. If there are any seeds that I forgot, just let me […]

13 Vegan Snack Ideas for Work (Simple & Convenient)

Most things I’ve read about vegan snack ideas aren’t very portable. At most workplaces, you can’t (or don’t want to) just blend up a fresh smoothie whenever you’d like. That’s why I put together this list of vegan snack ideas specifically for the workplace. For snacks to get on this list, they had to meet most of […]
