Because our bodies are unable to make omega-3s, we gotta get them from what we eat. And, the most commonly sited sources are all animal based. But, never fear, vegans and vegetarians can get the EFAs they need by incorporating some of these foods into their diets.
Sustainable farming practices, ecosystem health and economic wealth are returning to a village in Guatemala one food forest at a time thanks to 501c Contour Lines Corp.
I’ve mentioned this before, but Tulum will always hold a special place in my heart for being the place where I first decided to go vegan. My return only served to deepen my love for the area.
Not only did I escape death by starvation in Italy (quite the opposite in most places, actually) I was pleasantly surprised by some of the offerings and blown away by others.
Over the past few years my interest in keeping and growing plants has grown by leaps and bounds. And, based off the reactions to some of my recent IG posts, I’m not alone. Our new home was nearly 2 years in the making. Shortly before the process began in earnest I became super interested in home gardening and ways to maximize small spaces. I knew there would be some challenges with growing in the desert but as I did more research I realized it wasn’t impossible — but more on the ‘how’ later. For now, let’s talk about what made me want to do this in the first place. Reasons…

Reading labels is serious business if you’re vegan. Most of you already know that being vegan means avoiding all animal by-products. This includes meat, poultry, dairy, eggs, seafood or shellfish, and, for some of us, bee products. If you’re like me – i.e. impatient and not good with small fonts – you might find it easier to use an app OR memorize some red flag ingredients to be on the lookout for while you’re shopping. I’ve included my personal list along with my favorite label reading shortcut — the allergen warnings. What is an Allergen Warning? Food allergies are a big deal and between federal regulations and today’s litigious climate…
Follow along as I explore San Jose del Cabo! Highlights include Plaza Mijares, Baja Brewing Co (vegan pizza!!), the cutest B&B you ever did see, and some relaxing footage of the stunning beach landscape (watch till the end).
I've dubbed the aesthetic for our new home 'boho meets mid-century in the Southwest'. This week I focused on finding plant and textile accessories that fit my style.
