The Best Vegan Egg Substitute for Breading: I Tested 3

Just because you’re vegan doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy many of the same breaded foods you did before. Although it won’t be the exact same. None of these are perfect substitutes for eggs in breading, but most do a pretty good job. Some people actually prefer them. I did my research, and there were 3 breading […]

How Many Vegans Are There in Canada? [2020 Survey]

We all live in information bubbles. For vegans, it seems like veganism is really catching on, with stories and news articles leading us to believe that more and more people are going vegan. But are they really? It’s a difficult thing to measure for many reasons, but surveys can give us decent data to form […]

Are Twizzlers Vegan? [Probably Not…]

When I first went vegan, I heard that Twizzlers were vegan in a few different places. They don’t contain gelatin, like many other non-vegan candies, so I can see why someone might think that. However, there’s a very good chance that Twizzlers are not vegan-friendly. I’ll walk you through why I think this, and you […]

Are Swedish Fish Vegan?

Whether or not Swedish Fish are vegan depends on how strict of a vegan you are. It also depends on your location (I’ve heard some stories of Swedish Fish containing beeswax in some places), although that’s not an issue in North America. I’ll break down the ingredients that may not be vegan, and then you […]

The Best Vegan Vitamin B12 Supplements 2020 [Updated]

“You’re going to die! You can’t get vitamin B12 as a vegan!” True, vitamin B12 is important. It’s needed to make red blood cells, and supports your brain and nerve function (among other roles). And it’s true that on typical western vegan diets, you won’t get much (if any) vitamin B12 (although some foods are […]

The 4 Best Vegan Calcium Supplements of 2020

Calcium deficiency is fairly common in the general population. But vegans can be at an even higher risk of it. Most studies have come to the same conclusion – most vegans don’t get enough calcium. One study found that vegans getting less than 525 mg of calcium per day increased to a higher risk of bone fractures. (Interesting side […]

What’s the Best Vitamin D Supplement for Vegans in 2020?

Vitamin D deficiency is a problem for  both vegans and omnivores alike. Recent research shows that around 77% of Americans are vitamin D deficient, particularly in the winter. If you’re in Canada like I am, or even more north, your risk is likely even higher. Vegans face an even greater challenge because the only good food […]

The 4 Best Vegan Iron Supplements in 2020

Iron deficiency leads to fatigue, chest pain, and shortness of breath, among several other symptoms. It’s common in the general omnivore population. Considering that iron is even harder to get for vegans because plant iron comes in the less absorbable non-heme form, it’s no wonder that vegans are at a higher risk of being deficient. Women who […]

The 5 Best Vegan Moisturizers With SPF in 2020

If you’re here, you already know that sunscreen is a good thing. So I won’t waste any time trying to convince you. But most sunscreens are not vegan, and some of the ones that are will leave you with dry skin. That’s why I set out to find the best vegan moisturizers that have a decent […]

The 5 Best Vegan Vitamin Brands in 2020

I can’t be the only one who thinks it’s weird that many vitamin B12 supplements aren’t vegan. It makes things way harder than they need to be. That’s why I did some research and found the most popular vitamin brands that only sell vegan products, or at least mark them very clearly. If you see any […]
