I’m always very touched when I witness kindness between strangers. The man who gives his seat on the metro to the elderly woman. The woman who yells to the bus driver to let down the ramp for the handicapped man when the bus driver doesn’t hear him. Total strangers, total kindness. It restores my faith ...

vegan rainbow sushi veggie magnifique

As many of you know, we recently graced the stage of the large conference room at Veggie World – Paris. In addition to it being a total hoot, we also made new friends, connected with our amazing colleagues in the vegan community, and tried some toothsome new vegan cheeses. (If you’re unfamiliar with this amazing weekend festival ...

veggie magnifique tea questions iodine favorites vegan

Today we have a sort of “video podcast” for you. As in, Chloe and I chit-chat at length and drink a vat of tea, while also answering your burning questions! (It was a tough job, but as always, someone had to do it.) So we sat down with this lovely, massive pot and got down to business.   Cravings, ...

vegan veggie magnifique what I eat in a day

According to this article, bilinguals have multiple personalities. Does this mean that all of us bilinguals have mental disorders?! Nope.

veggie magnifique holistic nutrition

I’ve come to truly enjoy dining solo. There’s something out-of-the-ordinary and adventurous about it. It’s just you, your food, and an endless spectrum of sensations.

Not only is there just a mess of animal products in almost every “eating” establishment here in Paris, but also, I can’t just “go shoe shopping” because… All dem shoes are made of cow. Or made of toxic plastic in Bangladesh by other women-humans like myself, but with utterly miserable ...

mindful consumption conscious

Last night I dreamt I met Tim Ferriss. I was sitting down on a park bench reading a book about Vagabonding that he recommends, and there he came… strolling along with his little beanie. I waved at him, and showed him proudly what I was reading, and then almost immediately following his approving nod, I convinced him ...

I’ve been taking advantage of the great outdoors while in Seattle. Mountaineering (sort of), bird watching, and general frolicking in nature. It’s been my saving grace as I pore through the bounteous boxes of my childhood, attempting to further Marie Kondo my life. Taking breaks from chucking plastic toys and stuffed animals into Goodwill bags, to commune ...
