“The media portrays veganism as a diet. Industries and politicians portray veganism as extremism. Big animal welfare groups portray veganism as too hard for the general public to understand. People that can’t stand the thought of animal rights portray veganism as craziness. Hollywood portrays veganism as the butt of a joke. The reality is that veganism is a philosophy/lifestyle/social justice movement based on a few ethical principles, such as: Justice, freedom, non-violence, empathy, compassion peace, and love. Now tell me, what is so “extreme, hard, crazy, funny, or dietetic” about Justice, Freedom, Non-Violence, Empathy, Compassion, Peace, and Love? Those are all simple and great principles/virtues to live by.”—(via soycrates)

And yet I’m STILL hungry.
I can’t wait to go to Total Conditioning class later tonight.
I’m hoping to stay 80% raw today. Just experimenting with my body:)
How are you all doing?
The short answer: yes, of course they can! The New York Times discusses the issue with three sports and nutrition experts. As most of you know, the one issue is vitamin B12, which is found significantly only in meat. B12 is important for endurance athletes, since it affects red blood cell production. But many cereals and non-dairy milks are fortified with B12 now, or you can take supplements. On your mark, get set, go vegan!
