day 22 – vegan boobs – by jessica

i’m not sure if it’s my new hairdo, or the fact that i’ve stopped eating cheese that has resulted in several independent sources commenting on the fact that I look slimmer.  bonus!!  i don’t own a scale so I wouldn’t have known otherwise, although my pants are fitting a bit better and my bra is Continue Reading …

day 20 – vegan grade 1 – by jen

i’m getting to the point where i don’t mind skipping the cream in my americano (the thought doesn’t even appeal to me at this point) and dodging the obviously buttery muffins and scones. but i am starting to get frustrated at not being able to eat things that aren’t supposed to have dairy in them. Continue Reading …

i am amazed by how much energy would be saved if more north americans were to eat a plant based diet. the energy used in producing and distributing food accounts for roughly 60% of the total energy north americans use. from shipping, production plants and processing to delivery, packaging and selling. of that 60%, over Continue Reading …

yesterday was a whilrwind of excitement. i got up and decided to whip up some blueberry muffins.  there is something so comforting about your house filling up with the smell of fresh baked goodness in the oven. they turned out a bit mushy and not quite as great as they smelled, but i’ve eaten probably Continue Reading …

We’re starting to find that you have to get really creative to enjoy variety in your diet as a vegan, or work really hard to find suitable substitutions and alternatives.  This applies 100 times over to dining out.  We’re lucky to have several options in our neighbourhood for this, but when we venture just a Continue Reading …

lots of vegan shenanigans to report for the last few days.  day 10, a couple friends and i rode our bikes the “wrong way” on the stanley park seawall and oh man did we hear about it.  our defiant cackles and witty retorts such as, “you don’t know where we’re going!” only fueled their rage. Continue Reading …

day 11 – what’s velan? – by jen

i love how in vancouver when you ask if something is vegan, they have an answer, and have obviously been asked before. it’s a different story out here in the ‘burbs. some people literally don’t know what i’m talking about. ‘what’s Velan’ i was asked by a sweet older man at the bakery. sure is Continue Reading …

day 10 – muffins and seagulls – by jen

Pin It

despite the spontaneous rashes that break out on my skin within minutes of being with jess and bridgie’s cats, the ladies and i have all noticed our skin exhibiting a ‘vegan glow’. i’ve dropped a couple of pounds, and have noticed since taking on this project that a lot of the food i cannot eat Continue Reading …

day 9 – blissful ignorance – by jen

after yet another food-related conversation with a new friend at the aforementioned dinner party sunday night, i was inspired to take my green smoothie to the next level. yesterday, i put an entire head of green leaf lettuce in a smoothie. my blender broke down only twice ($aving up for a vita mix), and the Continue Reading …
