Pretty proud of myself for having a salad for lunch today considering I used to gag at the sight of lettuce! Spinach, dried cranberries, hemp hearts, and sweet balsamic vinaigrette. It was delicious!

I whipped the sweet balsamic vinaigrette together at my desk at work by mixing a basic, store brought balsamic vinaigrette with some Bee Free Honee. Yum!! 

This was also my first time trying hemp hearts!

“It’s never really been that hard for me. I’ve never had any desire to eat meat. In fact, when I was a kid I would have a really difficult time eating meat at all.”

-Actor Toby Maguire

From BuzzFeed’s “23 Hot Guys You Didn’t Know Were Vegan”

“It’s a new vegan diet. I’m just trying to live forever.”

-Actor Samuel L. Jackson

“I’m a really big lover of animals, and, at the risk of sounding like a total hippie, I do feel more connected to the world at large and to animals.”

“At least do it for yourself. I would rather spend money on food now than on doctor bills later. The health reasons are staggering! Do it also to take yourself out of the cycle of killing and abuse to living things. Show some compassion, and act on it.”

“You shouldn’t eat animals, it’s mean to them.”

“Our society is centered around meat consumption, and our society fucking sucks.”

“I’ve also been on a pretty strict plant-based diet for 4 months now – feeling stronger, fitter, healthier and more productive. I ride longer distances on my bike, can do more pull-ups than ever, and my brain seems to have a larger capacity for new projects, problem solving, songwriting, and fielding random questions. My health and strength make me a better performer and all that combined gives me more confidence to go out in the world and shine my light. It also makes me a lot better in bed. Just sayin’…”

-Musician Jason Mraz

From BuzzFeed’s “23 Hot Guys You Didn’t Know Were Vegan”

“My reason for becoming a vegetarian was simple: I loved (and love) animals and I don’t want to be involved in anything that leads to or contributes to their suffering. At first this led me to give up beef and chicken. Then fish (if you’ve ever spent time with fish you realize pretty quickly that they feel pain and are much happier not being hooked or speared or netted). Then I thought, “I don’t want to contribute to animal suffering. But the cows and chickens in commercial dairy and egg farms are pretty miserable, so why am I still eating milk and eggs?” So in 1987 I gave up all animal products and became a vegan. Simply so that I could eat and live in accordance with my beliefs that animals have their own lives, that they’re entitled to their own lives and that contributing to animal suffering is something that I don’t want to be a part of.”
