Detoxification is an important practice that promotes health and longevity. That’s because it helps keep many conditions including cancer, diabetes, liver problems, and kidney problems at bay.
You see, our planet is full of toxins, which are everywhere like bacteria. These toxins come from many different sources including within the body itself, clothes, food additives, water, air pollutants, and body products. Home cleaning products, pesticides & herbicides, food storage containers, and cars are also big culprits.
I’m vegan burger-obsessed as much as I’m a health nut. If there’s a burger on the menu, it’ll trump any organic cardboardy bird food I’d usually go for. And to say Berlin has its vegan burger game down pat is quite the understatement. Every burger joints has a vegan option. Scratch that. Every restaurant has a burger option has a vegan burger option. Berlin has more burger spots than native Berliners and my ambition to document every single vegan burger option in the city was quickly shut down by the pace at which places open and close. So, as the Berlin vegan burger scene ebbs and flows like a goddamn annoying breathing thing, this guide is getting updated with my latest discoveries and classics not to be missed.
If you’re considering veganism for a month: high five! Make sure you read my Veganuary tips guide for a successful transition and my favourite vegan quotes for a little inspiration. If you’re considering taking this further than the month: you really should, and watching the best vegan documentaries there are out there is a great way to get to your ends.
As you might have guessed from the number of blog posts that are already piled up here about Bali, I absolutely love it. A LOT. And for many reasons. The one I’ll be discussing today is Jamu, this traditional Indonesian medicinal drink that looks a bit like mango juice and that you might have seen popping up on several warung menus or in baskets on the head of the Jamu Gendong, these women roaming the streets selling their precious potions to the locals every morning.
These days, every grocery store is also a vegan grocery store.
But of course, a vegan grocery list is not your average grocery list. I’ve been vegan for over a decade, and navigating grocery stores and eating out has definitely gotten easier over the years. There certainly was no vegan grocery store back in the days. These days where I live in Berlin, there’s a fully vegan store near me called Veganz and I consider myself the luckiest vegan alive. For everything else, my favourite online grocery store for vegan groceries is definitely iHerb.
Is honey vegan? There are many debates within the vegan community about various foods you can and can’t consume. And one of them is honey.
To be a vegan is to abstain from consuming or using products made of/that use animal products in the production process — due to ethical or environmental reasons. Bees do make honey themselves, and they are a living thing, but do vegans eat honey? It’s not necessarily a clear-cut case compared to other things such as meat and tends to depend on an individual’s beliefs.
If you think about the most popular Italian dishes as they are known internationally, you might end up believing that Italy and its capital, Rome, aren’t some of the best destinations for vegan travellers. A deeper look at the offer of local markets, restaurants, and at the products of Mother Nature, which has always been so generous with Italy, will make you reconsider the question whether or not vegan Rome is a thing (vegan Bologna is absolutely a thing). There are a few essential vegan travel tips you need to know for enjoying Rome vegan (and do check out the ETIAS requirements if you are travelling from a non-Schengen area) and be sure that beautiful surprises are awaiting you when you explore the vegan Rome!
Berlin frenz, if we’re going to put on the quarantine fluff, might as well do it with delicious vegan food with the multiple take away Berlin options.
There’s nothing funny about what’s happening right now. I’m assuming it’s no news to you that the virus Corona was born from the animal trade. COVID-19 is life-threatening but is also changing lives. Poor conditions for animals have in recent years caused a rise in diseases spreading from animals to humans, otherwise known as zoonotic diseases. With its origins in a wet meat market in China, my only hope now is that it’ll prompt some people to go vegan.
Stockholm’s vegan scene is rather small but definitely vibrant and varied. The one thing I found a bit strange is how most vegan places are only open for lunch, but there are a few places that offer dinner too, of course. I won’t bore you too much with an intro, but I just want to say that the vegan Stockholm scene has some of the best fast food and Asian food I’ve ever had, and a throng of cute little hipster cafes worth crashing for some healthy breakfast food and delicious coffee. I loved Stockholm and it’s made it to one of my favourite places in Europe for vegan food!
