hi ive been a vegan for 2 months now i know that it hasnt been so long but ive been feeling kind of weak and exhausted lately maybe its because i havent been eating enough protein? i just wanted to know what i should be eating to balance not eating meat i just really dont have anyone to consult about this. Also i wanted to know if you have any cookbooks you can recommend me thank you in advance :)
Hi, well congratulations on the two months! Ok I doubt it’s protein, things that contain protein are pulses, nuts , veggies such as kale and green beans, Quinoa, Tofu, most vegan milk, Tempah and loads of other things. It’s realllly easy to get the right amount of protein in a vegan diet. It’s more likely to be B12 you’re lacking, you can put this right by taking a supplement or eating cereals or vegan milks which have B12 added to them. As for cookbooks I’m afraid I don’t really tend to buy any! I just look for recipes online, but I’m sure if you do a bit of research online you’ll find something good:)
And no problem. xxx
Oh goodness excuse me for not expressing what i really meant.
When I said cruelty free. Obviously that’s not a thing. No matter what I do I am inevitably in some way contributing to something bad. WHAT A CONCEPT.
But since this jackass is literally too stupid to understand the difference…
People like this really piss me off, saying there’s no point in going vegan because not everyone’s vegan is like saying there’s no point in not killing people because not everyone doesn’t kill people…. it’s the worst fucking argument ever. Actually I’m yet to hear a GOOD argument for the needless slaughter of billions of animals which in effect, causes world hunger,massive exploitation, poverty and environmental destruction.
Does anyone know of any GOOD tasting vegan marshmallows that I can buy in the UK? I’m yet to find any I like and it’s really pissing me off !!
I’m not certain they sell them in the UK, but Dandies are amazing.
omfg, they do, I love you. Thank you… you are my fucking hero (I kinda like marshmallows)

HOLY MOTHER OF GOD, THAT IS SO MUCH ADORABLE I CAN’T BREATHE.
What is a good website to direct people to that proves to them humans don't need meat to survive and live healthy?
Hey, well there’s this for those who are less selfish: http://www.peta.org/issues/animals-used-for-food/meat-environment/
and then there’s this for those who’d only be motivated to go vegan if it had benefits for them: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1598357/pdf/brmedj00062-0049a.pdf
It’s a beautiful, intelligent article that uses evidence to back up the point that veganism is actually brilliant for your health. :) I’ve used it on people quite a few times and it’s worked …
Many people saw this photo on the internet and made fun of the “dairy” cow by calling her “stupid” but no one has wondered why she would leave the huge, lush, green pasture behind her and climb over a fence. The cow in the photo is a “first-calf heifer” trying to find her stolen baby. These first time mothers will do literally anything to get to their babies.
A cow will continue to grow physically until she is 3-4 but a “dairy” cow is forcibly impregnated when she is only 15 months old and has her first calf when she is 2. A 2 year old cow is a teenager and will still be playful.
The term “first-calf heifer” is used very frequently in the dairy industry and refers to a cow who has had her first baby. The dairy industry uses the word “heifer” instead of “cow” to describe these first time mothers because they are yet to reach their full mature cow size.
Having not experienced the systematic loss of her babies yet thus very hopeful and ambitious, a “first-calf heifer” will be extremely determined to find and get to her stolen baby that she will literally do anything. This includes crawling over fences, breaking out of fields and walking for miles. To avoid this from happening, dairy farmers try to make their fencing escape-proof with hot electric fence, electric wire strands, steel panels, sturdy barbed/page wires.
