Hi! I am moving to Sunshine Coast soon, but I won't know anyone. Are they're many raw vegans there? I hope I can find a place to feel welcome xx

Sunshine Coast BC Canada? Most ppl think I’m from the Australian Sunshine Coast… So I gotta ask.

- Question from we-only-live-one-hundred-years -
whenever I try and grow my own produce, a bunch of bugs eat it! how do you protect your produce with natural pesticides?

I know how frustrating that can be!! But it happens to everyone… i suggest row covers (I posted a photo just now, should be on the post below).

Row covers!!  But this photo is a little wrong… you wanna set them up as soon as the seeds are in the ground (usually).  These work especially well to keep white moths and flea beetles off brassicas (kale, collards, cauliflower, broccoli, etc) :).  FYI the white mesh cover doesn’t trap heat in, and it can be watered through… so it only has to be removed when harvesting.

- Question from veganvango -
It doesn't matter how "humane" animals people eat are killed. The fact is methane gases from agriculture are responsible for 18% of the total release of greenhouse gases world-wide, which is more than ALL transportation. I have a co-worker who stopped driving a car and now bikes everywhere...but he eats meat. When I told him he could have kept driving and just improved his diet and it would overall be better for his health and the planet he said "yeah but I can't." I think you mean you WON'T.

This ^^^

I have so many friends who call themselves “environmentalists” but they still support animal agriculture by eating meat and dairy… either they’re #clueless or maybe they just don’t want to believe what they’re doing is contradictory to what they claim their beliefs are. I hear the “oh but not the meat I buy” argument waaaay to often. Especially in the small town I live in ppl think somehow the meat & dairy sold here must be better (happy animals, quick easy slaughters, right?)… sorry friends, it’s not.

They protest logging and oil tankers and then go eat a burger and it’s ridiculous. #hypocrites

Rant over.

- Question from kitty-fatale -
Can you please direct me to someone who I can ask advice about dieting?

Hmmmm I really don’t know who to recommend. Maybe because I don’t think diets are healthy or smart or sustainable. Whereas a healthy diet that you adopt and enjoy for life, one that’s not calorie or taste restrictive, that’s a good thing. (Sorry I know that was an annoying answer).

- Question from kaaypry -
I just fell in love with your blog. It inspires me so much to become pescetarian like I have been longing to do for quite some time now I just couldn't get myself to follow through with it. You have finally inspired me that even though it may be very difficult at first, it will be so worth it in the long run. So thank you and keep doing what you're doing! Inspiring many, that is. Much love. ❤️

So soooo worth it! Congratulations :). Make sure the fish you’re eating isn’t farmed (bad for you, the fish populations, & the environment). Best of luck!!

Do you keep track of your weight/calories?

I used to, like when I started to change my diet and eat healthier… I don’t track calories anymore, but there is a scale in my bathroom and I weigh myself lots. Probs not a great thing to do but its a habit I guess from my eating disorder past.

This salad was so good.  Perfect for a rainy autumn evening.  1 large head of lettuce, handful of baby kale (“red russian” variety is my fave), a few big yellow and pink swiss chard leaves, handful cilantro, 1/2 avocado, 1 medium zucchini, bunch of tomatoes (various types), 2 figs, lots of pomegranate seeds, lots of scallions, & 1.5 cups warm quinoa (I used red & white).  Decorated with some edible flowers, nasturtiums and calendula petals, and then dressed with a simple tahini dressing: 1.5 tbsp tahini, 1/2 lemon juiced, 2-3 tbsp water mixed together with a spoon. 🍁 Happy thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians!

I love using collard leaves to create a burrito style wrap!  Tastier & healthier for sure.  I had to use a few leaves to create the wrap tonight since the leaves I have are small, but if you can find big enough ones all you need is one!  Filled with quinoa, spinach, tomatoes, chioggia beets, avocado, thinly sliced leeks, cilantro, & yellow zucchini.  That’s it!  So good.

Tonight I made @rawvana’s sweet thai “rice” and it was seriously so good!  Cauliflower was used to create the “rice”, mixed with pineapples, red bell pepper, cilantro, scallions, celery & a simple mango-lime-tamarind dressing.  Full recipe on her YouTube account!

Lol @ the farmer (who happens to be my neighbour, Heinz) at the farmers market today who had some RUM on his table.  Not sure why.  Cheers?
