    Vegan in Shanghai

    Funnily I can’t even say if I found it hard or easy to be a vegan in Shanghai. But I guess if I think about it, I would say: there are places where it’s way easier to find vegan food choices. Maybe if you have a little bit of practice and routine of what to eat you’ll be fine, but definitely it is not the most vegan friendly city!   Over time I developed a “travel kitchen” that I bring with me no matter where I go. I never had any issues “importing” those items, but rather ALWAYS have been grateful I had them with me (those late nate hunger…

    FAQ – I don’t like animals, so why stop eating them?

    First of all I have to ask you: are you really really sure? I personally do know some people who claim to not like animals. But, a vegan diet does not ask you to get a pet and be the best pet parent on this planet that has ever existed. It is okay to not squeak in excitement if you see a cat or dog, wanting to cuddle with them all day. But don’t you think that every breathing creature with feelings has the right to live and not be slaughtered to death just for a taste?   Besides the moral aspect, a vegan diet is not all about the…

    What do others say about … Veganism

    I personally love looking and reading through quotes. They are wise words by someone who put a lot of thought into expressing something meaningful in only just a few letters. Some inspire, others make one start thinking, and others again are funny. They are written about all kinds of topics: food, relationship, money, life, diets, work, love, … as well as veganism, the animals and the environment. Stars, role models, actors, singers, writers, historic people… and nobodies wrote them.   I also believe that their messages stick with people on a much deeper level than just someone preaching, lecturing or writing blog posts about a certain topic. Therefore I started…

    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 – How can I help spread the vegan message?

    It doesn’t matter if you went vegan yesterday, 2 months ago or years back (even if you just had your first vegan meal, that’s cool – because it’s never to late :)) you are doing an amazing job at saving so many animal lives.   I sometimes hear people doubting my decisions and saying that one vegan more or less does not make an impact. But what if there were 200 people who stand up against those beliefs and make plant based food choices every day, does this have an impact? Hell yes it does. So never believe you are alone and what you do doesn’t matter; because that’s completely…

    FAQ – Isn’t it my personal choice what I eat?

    First of all, nobody can’t and won’t force you into anything you don’t want to. Once you are a grown up, you are able to make your own choices. But with this ability there also comes responsibility along the way.   It sure as hell is your own personal choice to choose which foods to put into your body – as far as it concerns your health. But besides your health, the diet choices you make affect the environment, other people as well as innocent breathing creatures that have feelings just like you and I, with a desire to live.   Often non-vegans argue that they believe in freedom and…

    FAQ – Isn’t veganism too extreme?

      Often times people say veganism is too extreme; they had to change their whole diet. And if you grew up eating dairy, eggs and even meat, a vegan diet surely is a switch in your habits. But an extreme is a matter of opinion.   Probably everyone who spent some time digging deeper and looking at what really is going on would describe the “normal”, dominant animal product diet as extreme. So much suffering, pain and terrible consequences come with it.   Isn’t it extreme to literally pay money so somebody kills an innocent animal who was treated the worst way its whole life just for a taste. When…
