Thanksgiving is next weekend and if this is your first “turkey holiday” as a vegan or vegetarian, it can be hard. One of the main reasons people eat meat is because of tradition. Lucky for us that there are so many amazing holiday vegan options, I promise you, you’ll never crave turkey again
This weekend I flew back home to Montreal to watch my best friend of 20 years marry a wonderful man.
I was lucky enough to be her maid of honour. She got our dresses from china and it was a little too tight. It didn’t help that I gained 10 pounds this summer. If you read my last blog, you’ll know that I was doing a 2 week detox and it was a success. I lost 8 pounds and was able to fit in my dress…kinda lol it was a little tight.
That picture basically sums up my summer minus the sleeping and working. I really indulged in food this summer. So much so, I gained 10 pounds. This is the first time since I lost 40 pounds that my discipline went out the door and I just enjoyed food.
After ten years together, my friends are tying the knot this September. They are vegan (no, not all vegans hang out together, it’s just a coincident) and have been spending a lot of time prepping a vegan wedding menu that everyone can enjoy.
The Sullivan Pond Geese are a staple in Dartmouth. These animals are even smart enough to know to cross at the crosswalk. This week, some idiot drove right through the crosswalk while the geese were crossing
There’s a stomach bug going around and I was lucky enough to experience it *eyeroll*
It doesn’t matter how vegan you are, when you’re sick, you crave chicken noodle soup. Not enough to actually eat it though but the thought is in your mind.
People are often surprised that my partner isn’t a vegan. How does that work? Doesn’t it bother you that he eats meat.
Here’s the thing. Going vegan was my choice. It’s something I felt I needed to do. My boyfriend has watched all the same documentaries of me and knows the pros and cons but, he still eats meat. Not as much as he used to.
