Going Plant-Based Equals Eating Disorder?

By | May 11th, 2016|Categories: Health is Wealth, Lifestyle|Tags: , , , |1 Comment

I am in the unique position where, not only am I vegan and a plant-based chef, but I'm also a mental health counselor. I've had the privilege of helping people overcome a wide range of mental health issues. So, it's not surprising that I would be interested in a proposed eating disorder called, Orthorexia Nervosa, which is a steadily growing trend among the eating disorder community. Especially since, as of late, orthorexia nervosa has been connected with a vegan/plant-based diet. Before I get into that, what is Orthorexia Nervosa? This is not an official diagnoses in the most recent edition [...]

When Someone Says They Hate Animal Cruelty…But They Aren’t Vegan

By | April 26th, 2016|Categories: Lifestyle|0 Comments

I believe that everyone who has become, or remained, vegan for the animals has confronted this cognitive dissonance at least once.

There was a sense of hypocrisy in admitting that I still loved the taste of animal based foods, [...]

My Favorite Vegan Meats

By | April 7th, 2016|Categories: Lifestyle, Products|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

Animal meats were not exactly my guilty pleasure before going vegan. I was more of a cheese fan. However, I can't lie and say I didn't miss bacon, or fried chicken, or burgers when I began to transition into a plant-based lifestyle. Luckily, there are so many vegan meats out in the market today that FOMO won't be a problem for you. There's vegan bacon, vegan chicken, and vegan burgers. All of them tasty and full of meaty texture. Here are some of my favorite vegan meats... 1. Gardein Vegan Meats 2. Yves Meatless Ham 3. Field Roast Grain Meats- Smoked [...]
