Veganism

Veganism Rocks

Here’s the question I always get asked, and probably what you’re thinking too: What’s Veganism? Dude, have you heard of Google or Wikipedia? I’ll spell it out for you:

No animal products.

No obesity.

No adult-onset diabetes.

No animal harm.

A significantly reduced risk of heart disease and cancer.

A reduced carbon footprint—which saves all of us, and our planet.

But what you really want to know, probably, is “Where do you get your ‘protein’?” or “Can I have a hamburger?” The answer is yes: I get more protein than you realize—the sources you consider ‘protein sources’ have tricked you into thinking they are the only ones; And yes, my hamburgers taste good.

Here’s where we’ll talk about that. I’ll share quotes, studies, links to vegan resources, facts, and my thoughts on veganism as I navigate a world consumed by its unrecognized obsession with the consumption of animals.

I also have a lot of good recipes to share, which I hope you will enjoy.
