Over the years, many people have attempted to reach the famous peak of Mount Everest, though not many have been...
Jezebel provides a recipe for oven-baked vomit balls. Thankgiving isn't a vegan holiday.
With the holidays (and holiday parties) on the horizon, my waistline requires a lighter option. This simple squash dishes serves both purposes equally and will fit well within your pre-holiday wallet restrictions, too!
Some college clichés are not necessary. These tend to be overrated and annoying. People who do these things will probably talk your ear off about how awesome it is (I was one of those people when I did most of these things). It's not awesome. It's stupid. Find something else to do.
So far, this hasn’t really gotten any easier - I have made some minor mistakes. Like when my sweet tooth craving hit during homecoming and I (drunkenly) ran to Dunkin Donuts for a chocolate glazed donut, but I’d say that’s been my worst slip up yet.
On Tuesday my manager brought in pints of Ben & Jerry’s, just for fun. Really? Like, REALLY? Just rub it in a bit more that I, the biggest ice cream lover of all time, can’t dig in to free Ben & Jerry’s (mint chocolate chip, no less). But I was actually able to stay focused and keep my eye on the prize.
Olivia Wilde. Carrie Underwood. Alicia Silverstone. Lea Michele. What do they all have in common? (Besides being really, really ridiculously good-looking?) They’re all vegans. That means they don’t eat any kind of food derived from an animal – meaning no meat, fish, eggs, or dairy. And lately, I feel like I’ve been hearing all about how absolutely stellar it makes them feel.
As you're reading this, you're probably shifting back and forth between Internet Explorer and iTunes as you queue up another power hour for you and the girls, as you get ready for this blessed day of most outlandish makeup and dress, Halloween. However, tomorrow morning, reality will set in. It breaks my heart, but you will discover you are not actually Lady Gaga, and you do have a term paper due on Friday.
Okay, so it's been kind of a busy fall season so far, and I haven't had a ton of time (read: any time where I wasn't either studying or drinking) to call home (delinquent daughter... whoops!). Anyway, my family had no idea that I was going meatless for a month, and I just mentioned it in passing to my mom on the phone, and she laughed. She thought I was joking.
I can't believe that I have made it through two weeks as a vegetarian! Honestly, I am a little surprised - I haven't cheated at all! Not a single piece of meat. Not even chicken broth, because I was worried that would count.
So, I've successfully made it through my first week without meat... and it hasn't been too bad! I've really liked that not eating things with meat has really forced me to try different foods and eat a more balanced diet, which is exactly what I was hoping would happen through this experiment.
Let me start off by saying that I love meat. Like a lot. If I could eat a steak for every meal, I would. And if it weren't gross to bathe in burger meat, I'd probably do that too. (Don't judge.)
Entering the dining hall at my college was like entering the land of some kind of lotus-eating, vegetarian haven, or, in my case, a carnivore’s personal version of hell. It’s not that they don’t serve meat; they do. But they also serve various other reinterpretations of meat: tofu ravioli, lentil hamburgers, vegan minestrone soup.
