Join me and share the journey to creating a world beyond the misunderstood pain we feel and the cruelty we justify to avoid facing the truth of our existence. Cruelty that only exists because we have not yet discovered how to feel this world without reacting in a simplistic survival response.
See life through the eyes of a Female generation Y. Discover what it means to be a young chocoholic vegan in a world full of promise.
All posts are kept light-hearted. Perfect for when your daughter/niece/granddaughter/junk food loving child claims being a vegan is "too hard when you're young" and that they "just want to be normal." This blog will show them the tricks of the generation Y trade, that they can still roast marshmallows on the fire, colour their hair crazy colours, eat pizza from a takeout box and buy nail polish without harming animals.

Adelaide based vegan food blog featuring recipes, product reviews, restaurant reviews and the occasional random tangent that has nothing to do with veganism.
The focus of this food blog is on Health via excellent nutrition and to share important information. There are recipes, tips, videos and horticultural information on how to grow organic vegetables and I encourage both non - vegetarians and vegetarians to eat more of the micro- nutrients your body needs to function well. The blog is based on nutrition science and I believe all of us have the potential to be well every single day.
Recipes and tips on growing your own organic vegetables, sprouts, juicing, sourdough bread, sauerkraut , kefir and plant based meals.

The Ethical Consumer Guide
"With every dollar you spend you have an impact on the planet and it's people.
We live in a time of human rights abuse, animal cruelty, genetically modified foods and the massive impact of industry on the environment. These can often seem beyond our control and quite removed from our everday life. However, the fact is that every time we buy something, our spending dollar endorses a company and its activities, whether we are aware of it or not â€“ whether we like it or not.
By avoiding companies with a negative track record and buying products from companies who have a positive impact, we can send a strong message for change and support the practices that make our world a better place to live in. Companies need our money to stay in business - money talks, and your dollar literally is your vote.
This shopping guide provides information on the environmental and social record of companies behind the brand names of common supermarket products.This is based on assessment gathered from over 25 sources including the work of organisations such as Greenpeace, Choose Cruelty Free, Corporate Monitor, Reputex, Responsible Shopper and Sustainability Victoria.
This website provides more detailed information and further resources for reducing your impact by being deliberate about the things you buy.
Every time you go shopping, make a difference, make your dollar count!"
