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

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 […]
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 […]
FAQ – What’s wrong with consuming dairy and eggs?
When I was a vegetarian I thought I was doing everything I could to prevent any animals from being hurt or killed. I didn’t even think about how consuming eggs, milk or any other dairy product could harm them, or even cause their deaths. When I finally educated myself I couldn’t believe what really was […]
FAQ – Isn’t a vegan diet very single-sided?
When I tell people that I eat a plant based diet, you won’t believe how many non-vegans stare at me with an open mouth and ask me in an incomprehensible way what else than plain salads, apples and bananas there is for me to eat. There for sure are vegans who just stop consuming meat, […]
Get started as a vegan
If you got raised to eat dairy, eggs and meat, becoming a vegan for sure is a change. The shelves at grocery stores are packed with animal products, and the first few days it all might seem overwhelming and too much – or too little to choose from. However just like everything scary new, those […]
