I'm bananas for Yonanas!

Sure, most vegetarians tend to eat a healthier diet than our omnivore counterparts. We pack our plates with fresh veggies and wholesome grains. Our meals are lower in saturated fats than heavy meat-eaters. But even with a healthy diet, we still crave some junk food every now and then. Even vegetarians like to indulge in a sugar-laden, nutrient-less dessert after a hearty meal.

That's why I'm so thankful to have found the Yonanas machine. This countertop appliance turns nourishing fruits into a delicious, frozen dessert. It's almost too good to be true.

Steer runs away from his own murder

Just like most vegetarians, I have a huge weakness for animals. I love seeing their furry faces. They smile when they are happy, and they cower when they are scared.

Many meat-eaters however, don't believe that animals are aware of their surroundings. They don't think they have emotions, and they really don't believe they can sense when they are about to be slaughtered. This is simply not the case.

Did you know that many animals cry and scream on their way to the slaughterhouse?

Earlier this week, one brave steer took control of the situation. His scheduled death ended up being the adventure of a lifetime.

Vegetarians vs. the Protein Scandal

How do you get enough protein without eating meat?

Anyone who is vegetarian has been asked this question before. No matter how hard you try, carnivores cannot accept the fact that protein is found in many vegetarian and vegan food sources. They believe that you must eat more protein than is actually required by your body. Did you know that only 10 percent of your calories need to be in the form of protein? That's easily accomplished through a vegetarian diet.
