Reasons behind the choices that define vegans

meg-kannan-245874.jpgFrom my experience with veganism, the major differences between vegans and vegetarians are most tied to ethical reasons. Vegans choose to abstain from eating or using animal products for reasons that stem from an understanding and compassion for all living creatures, not just humans.

Big-bully companies in the meat and leather industry not only threaten our livelihood but the planet too. Veganism presents a solution to the issue of global warming, hate and cruelty in our world, and it starts with the choices we make about the foods we eat and products we use.

Learning about stocks, ETFs, and other investments

benjamin-davies-332625.jpgI’m obsessed with learning about stock market investing–so for my health and fitness readers, you can go ahead and skip this one. I’ll be back Sunday with my regular focus on veganism! But, since I can’t stop reading all I can about stocks, bonds, ETFs, index funds, options, and all the other brokerage jargon that is necessary to maintain a profitable portfolio, I’ve decided I just have to write about it.

A cheap way to stay clean and healthy eating organic

foodiesfeed.com_fresh-fruit-in-summer.jpgOrganic foods have gained great popularity in the recent years, and rightfully so. While it’s important to avoid eating all non-organic foods, it can often get expensive. Knowing which foods are most often genetically modified or sprayed with pesticides helps to determine which organic foods to choose first when living healthier on a budget.

Recent Changes to Our Food

Twenty-first-century culture has developed technology to alter the genetic makeup of foods to allow them to stay on shelves longer, grow bigger and faster and kill the insects that are cutting into production sales—all at the expense of quality produce. Non-organic foods are toxic for the body and cause several detriments when consumed, such as increased body fat and a weakened immune system. Additionally, genetically modified foods don’t hold as much nutritional value and often lack taste, which means quality becomes an issue.
