For any outfit, a bag can make it ten times better. Unless it's cheap looking then it sticks out like a sore thumb. Most people buy leather bags for the look and because it lasts much longer. However if you're trying to live a vegan lifestyle then this is a huge no no.
Some might think if you're living a vegan lifestyle then you have no choice but to carry fabric purses. Some like how fabric bags look. I personally don't like fabric bags because, one, to me they're unattractive, and two, they fall apart easily. I prefer the leather look.
I don't know what happened. I was making stir-fried tofu on my messy stovetop (because I still needed to clean my kitchen), and I randomly began singing Marvin Gaye. I ran through a few songs off of the What's Going On album, one that my mom played a lot when my siblings and I were younger, and was suddenly filled with emotion. The album spoke about so many things that felt so relevant today such as environmental destruction, sickness, war, hatred, the power of spirituality, etc. I grabbed my phone and pulled up the album, and played the songs back to myself. I cried...Hard.
One of the biggest concerns in a vegan diet is, where do you get protein? This information is not very common when it comes to learning about veganism. There are, surprisingly, a lot of vegan options that have good sources of protein. They are actually consumed daily by vegans, but because of the lack of knowledge about these products, we think we are not consuming enough protein. So, I decided to make a list of the most common foods that are consumed by vegans that are a good source of protein.
Growing up, we didn't have a microwave in the house. So when I first approached one at about 20 years old, I wasn't confident on how to work it. The buttons had various commands, but none I fully understood. And then I found that even if I learned to use one, the others I'd encounter would have totally different buttons that meant totally different things!
It wasn't until I began my career and started working everyday that I would use a microwave on a normal basis. Every day I would bring my meals and then heat them up in the microwave during lunch time like everyone else in the workplace. It's interesting how quickly we can get used to new habits. For all of 2018 and 2019, I exposed my body to harmful, radiated meals! Unfortunately, though, that didn't hit home until recently.
As a vegan and a "tree hugger", I find vegan and green fashion important for numerous reason. One being that chemical clothes, like acid-wash jeans, are harmful to the earth. Due to global warming, I believe that we should do all that we can to decrease chemical use.
