Seven more makin’ vegan easy tips coming your way. Like my Facebook page to get them daily, and share with your friends and family. You never know what will be the “thing” that makes someone go vegan. I like to think that the easier we make it, the more people will embrace it. There’s no way around it. It’s easy being vegan.
Tip #134: Make time.
Someone said to me recently, “so many great recipes, so little time.” Don’t let time stop you from trying new recipes. You don’t even have to buy a new cookbook to be inspired. How about picking up an old, forgotten cookbook and trying a new recipe or two? You might be surprised by the gems you will find. Just last week I picked up a cookbook I’ve had for over 20 years and found two excellent vegan recipes.
Tip #135: Expect results.
Every day I find evidence the world is changing—for the better. There was a time not long ago that I thought I would never see a vegan product in the Sundance Catalog, which sells a boatload of expensive leather products. This weekend I opened it up to find this cute vegan bag. Woohoo!
Tip #136: Move over Yelp, there’s a new kid in town.
VeganCorner is a new website for all things vegan. If it’s vegan, you can write a review for it on this site. This is a great idea but remember, it will only work if we all do our part.
Tip #137: Eat your greens.
Dark, leafy green veggies are ranked numeral uno on the nutrient-density scale, which means we should eat a lot of them. Maybe this new cookbook, Wild About Greens, will help increase our consumption.
Tip #138: Be “cheezy.”
Check out the VegNews Guide to Vegan Cheese. This is an awesome list.
Tip #139: On a budget, all the recipes you will ever need are online.
Good sources include VegNews, Vegetarian Times, fatfreevegan.com and theppk.com. The list is long and google is your friend.
Tip #140: Vegans play sports.
For those who play baseball (or softball), Carpenter Trade makes custom vegan gloves. They’re a bit pricey, so another option is buying used equipment.
