    Argument i had today: plastic is more sustainable than paper

    Okay, so my mother went vegan approximately a year after I did, too.

    Would it be healthy to just eat organic fruits, vegetables, beans, tofu and rice?

    Hi , I was watching a Freelee video. I remembered a comment that said that Freelee only ate fruit (which isn’t true, if I’m right). I would like to lose some weight. My weakness is chocolate and sweet things. I love chocolate and sweet stuff. Thank you .

    Wanting to quit. food waste? less vegetables after going vegan?

    What's in your Garden?

    My peach tree has blossoms on it- hopefully we won't have a late freeze which kills them and prevents any fruit from happening. It seems I finally have the knack for growing garlic: the cloves I planted last fall have sprouted and are growing strong. My 3 jalapeno pepper plants, which I took...

    More: Fry veggies in olive oil to get maximum heath benefits (21. January 2016) The study apparently only looked at extra virgin olive oil, no refined olive oils or rapeseed / canola etc. Which surprises me since I've been led to believe that refined oils are better, i.e develops less unhealthy...
