    surf, yoga & vegan resort in Sri Lanka

    Resorts and retreats become more and more popular. Not only in Asia (Thailand, Bali, Sri Lanka, India, …) they seem to be very in style, but also in Europe (Spain, Portugal, Italy,…) yoga, surf or ayurveda fans can find a happy place for their soul.   During my time in Sri Lanka I was lucky enough to attend such a retreat. Doing so at the end of my 17-days-of-travelling-Sri-Lanka, it has just been the perfect and best way to end my already incredible time on the beautiful island.   My amazing friend Sandra and her husband Jack found a great land in Sri Lanka during their travels and spontaneously decided…

    2 choices in life

    The other day I came across a picture that really caught my attention. It got me thinking and wouldn’t let me stop pondering about its meaning. I really want to share this massive thought with you, as I believe that so many of us can truly benefit from this:   We ALWAYS have 2 choices in life   The comic showed two men trapped in deep holes. While one guy sat depressed, sad and truly unhappy about the current situation at the bottom of the hole, the other one was scraping soil off the walls building stairs into the high wall. The sentence underneath the photo went like this: “This is…

    FAQ – What do vegans eat?

    This is probably the most asked questions I hear when I tell people I am vegan. People still mistakenly believe that since vegans don’t eat meat, cheese or eggs, they eat what is left; the lettuce and a tomato on the burger, the side dish at dinner, or a banana while everybody else is enjoying their dessert. Yet I have never eaten a more diverse diet than I do now on a plant based one.   So it definitely is time to resolve this wrong conclusion.   By now there is a vegan substitute for everything; from milk to cheese and yoghurt to whip cream to eggs and even meat.…

    FAQ – Doesn’t it hurt the cow if we don’t milk her?

      The short answer is no!   The long answer is a little bit more complex: The only time a cow is giving milk is during and a little after pregnancy – to be able to feed her child.   And that is where the cruelty starts. Since the humans want her milk, mom and calf are separated shortly after birth, so the newborn doesn’t drink too much of what we want. Cows are not some stupid things; they are breathing creatures who cry for days and days once they are separated. Male calves are useless to this industry so they get rid of them, while the females will be…

    FAQ – Isn’t it okay to eat eggs from free ranged hens?

    First of all, let’s talk about eggs in general. There are eggs that come from hens that spend all their lives caged up in tiny tiny boxes with way to many other hens. They are unable to spread their wings or do anything else they would like to do. Often times they get aggressive and start picking each other, which is why they have to undergo the torture of beak trimming. Due to intensive farming and high livestock density diseases would spread rapidly, so they instead all ingest hormones, medications and antibiotics with their food. During their whole lives they won’t see any sun light but rather are captured in…

    How to not starve as a vegan in Cambodia

      While I was getting ready for the trip I was wondering how it would be like as a vegan in Cambodia. I had no idea what they eat; and what I would be able to eat from those things. On the internet I read over and over again that the bordering countries offer a lot more options without animal products, whereas Cambodia serves a lot of fish and meat dishes. So I packed some extra vegan granola bars and was ready for some adventure 🙂   I soon learned that their staple food is rice; which hey, is vegan. They eat rice for breakfast, lunch and dinner; and sometimes…

    FAQ – Is a vegan lifestyle healthy?

    If you really think about it, it’s kind of funny to ask oneself if “only” eating vegetables, legumes, fruits, grains – and all those other things that grow on our planet, which fall in the category of “healthy foods” and the ones we should eat most of – is healthy. But I myself was worried too when I first came to this lifestyle – our whole life we got told that meat, dairy and eggs have to be part of our diet; if not we would miss out on essential nutrients and became weak or sick.   However quite the opposite is the case. Lots and lots of people who…
