In the summer of 2011, Kristin Lajeunesse left her nine to five job, sold or donated most of her personal belongings, ended a long-term relationship, purchased and renovated a sports van, and hit the road on a quest to dine at and document every vegan restaurant in America on her blog Will Travel For Vegan Food.
Now, 1 book deal, 48 states, 500+ vegan eateries, and over 35,000 miles later, Lajeunesse’s life-changing journey is finally coming to an ... Read More

Huzzah! It’s an article about breastfeeding that doesn’t include shaming, ridicule, or a nursing mom being kicked off Facebook!Jackie Johnson-Smith had a very encouraging experience whilst dining out with her family: someone paid part of their tab. Because she was breastfeeding.When Johnson-Smith’s husband received the receipt for their meal, this lovely note was written on it:
“I bought one of your pizzas…please thank ... Read More

You can't unsee it. Usually if you crack a rock open, you just find more rock. But apparently some rock innards are a bit more barfy.
The "Pyura chilensis" is a mysterious sea creature delightfully known as "period rock" to those who handle it. It’s found on the coasts of Chile and Peru, and it’s pretty boring on the surface: it looks like a rock, feels like a rock, and acts like a rock. It sits on top of other rocks and never, ever moves. So ... Read More

I LOVE cereal—especially in the summer, when I’d rather chew glass than turn on a stove. But when cruising the aisles of my supermarket, it’s rare that I can actually find a brand that I want to eat. Often there’s something pesky in each ingredients list that keeps me from closing the deal (like gluten, added sugar, animal products, or icky chemical preservatives) and I’m left with nothing to pack my bowl.
That’s why I was ... Read More

As much as I support mamas helping mamas and I’m 200% for breastfeeding, I just can’t find it in me to understand these lengths that women go to for vegan breast milk. Alicia Silverstone has used her blog, The Kind Life, to set up Kind Mama Milk Share for vegan moms to connect and donate breast milk.
Personally I think its great that women will drive and ship breast milk from far and wide to help other women in need. I really do. And I also ... Read More

This is gross on way too many levels.
The German supermarket chain Esko is selling gendered sausages. WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN.
Apparently the men’s sausages are made to be "hearty” and “strongly-spiced," while the lady meat is "lean," with “high-quality vegetables” and a “delicate sheep casing.” They’re versions of the same company’s product, yet they have different ingredients, different prices, and ... Read More

Oh baby. Today in products you didn’t ask for, a specialty lollipop company called Lollyphile has “candified” the unique flavor of breast milk into wee lollies. You might be thinking, ‘hey – I have all my teeth and no longer wear diapers - this ain’t for me!’ But stop right there! Step one for enjoying these suckers is to turn off your brain.
“Any company can make up nostalgic flavors,” says Jason Darling, the ... Read More

Summer is officially just around the corner! Memorial Day is this coming weekend and I want to make some fancy lady cocktails. We can do so much better than a case of cheap PBR.

You can DIY if you are going to have people over that you want to impress. Here is an easy recipe for Lavender ... Read More
