Avocado’s vegan or no?

I have typically enjoyed the odd avocado here and there over my life and I admit the modern craze for these things may be a little overrated. They’re great seasoned and of course contain essential nutrients, perfect for the vegan diet; but can they really be classified as Vegan? I found an article not long ago on Facebook stating that avocados are running out and that they are technically not vegan. I dismissed it as propaganda but I still could not wipe the article from my mind. This led to me shopping more consciously and unfortunately for…

Sheffield for the win

I expect people to be kind, particularly those who surround themselves in an establishment that aims for a better future in helping our environment and doing all they can to reduce…

One of those vegan C*nts

I’ve had my fair few of nasty remarks from being a vegan, and I find myself time and time again asking why? I haven’t shoved it in anybody’s face. I haven’t been rude or aggressive towards those who eat meat. I’m just trying to be a kind and loving person to all beings, right? Ha,…
