Every day in 2012 I am posting one tip on my Facebook page to make living vegan easier. It’s going to take an army of vegans to move the world in a more compassionate direction. Join us today!
Tip #190: Useful health topics.
Although the information on Harvard’s “The Nutrition Source” website is not always vegan friendly, I have found the monthly newsletter beneficial for more general health information including topics like exercise, sleep and vitamin D.
Tip #191: Keep it simple.
According to Dr. Oz, “People who minimize food choices lose more weight.” I know this is true for me. Keep meals simple and focused on whole foods.
Tip #192: Take a stand.
Tell the world to go cruelty-free. Stop by The Body Shop and sign the pledge today.
Tip #193: Take me out to a ballgame!
PETA’s 2012 top picks for veg-friendly ballparks.
Tip #194: Vegans eat burgers.
I have been enjoying making burgers this summer from The Best Veggie Burgers on the Planet. Summers a great time to eat more veggie burgers. Check it out.
Tip #195: Get active and volunteer.
Giving a few hours a week (or month) of your time to a local non-profit will do a world of good. Bonus: You will get the warm and fuzzies for your efforts. I recently started volunteering for HEART and looking forward to learning more about humane education.
Tip #196: Revlon tests its products on animals.
This company was previously considered cruelty-free (although not vegan). Thanks mybeautybunny.com for the heads up. I also confirmed that PETA has moved Revlon to the “test on animals” list.
In the 2005 Shopping Guide for Caring Consumers (by PETA), Revlon was listed as cruelty-free, and the 12th Edition (2005) of the NAVS Personal Care for People Who Care also listed Revlon as cruelty-free. Companies change and we need to pay attention to that.
Bonus tip of the day: Leaping Bunning has apps for iPhones and Androids. Download it today to make shopping cruelty-free easier.
