On January 1, I committed to offering one vegan tip per day on Facebook. I was inspired by the vision board I created for the new year. We are nearing the half-way point and every day a new tip comes to mind. It has become a daily ritual. Each morning I sit down with a cup of coffee and sift through ideas to shed light on veganism.
Years ago when I learned of the concept of living free of all animal products, I thought it would be terribly difficult and back in the 80’s it would have been. But, WOW, we have come so far. It’s 2012 and it couldn’t be easier to be vegan.
Let’s change the world together. Do something today to plant a seed in someone’s mind. I’ll help water it with more ideas and tips throughout the year. Let’s keep this garden growing.
Tip #162: Celebrate your Dad.
Father’s day is next Sunday, June 17th. Give your Dad a vegan gift this year!
Tip #163: Vegan for the animals.
As much as we talk about healthy eating on It’s Easy Being Vegan, it’s good to remember that veganism is NOT a weight loss plan. Heard on the Our Hen House podcast. Bonus: You may want to check out their podcast.
Tip #164: Get active for the animals.
As an animal advocate, one of the easiest things you can do is use social media to share the pictures and links to domestic animals that need homes. Choose a local animal shelter, “like” or “follow” them and share the pictures of the cats, dogs and other animal they post that need forever homes. You never know who will wake up one morning ready to adopt a new pet. This is so easy. Do it today!
Tip #165: Calling all runners.
Want to train for a race this summer? Let PCRM help.
Tip #166: Help is available at every turn.
If you have a question about the vegan life, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will answer your question in an “Ask-a-Vegan” post on the blog.
Tip #167: The vegan community is awesome.
They keep lists of everything. Check out Barnivore to see what alcohol is vegan.
Tip #168: Practice BYOC.
Bring Your Own Containers when shopping in the bulk section of the grocery store.
