In an interview with Ingrid Newkirk, the co-founder and president of PETA, The Guardian pose the question – “is it time we stopped wearing wool?”.

Whether someone consumes meat or not, it is generally understood in society that an animal must be killed in order to obtain it. When it comes to other animal by-products however, it is less obvious as to whether practices can be considered humane. One example of this is wool, after all sheep are not killed in order...

5 Reasons Why Men Are Scared to Go Vegan

There’s no refuting the fact that veganism – at least certainly within the Western World – is on the rise. But is it’s rise equal among both genders? Are both males and females aligned within the movement? (spoiler: No. No they’re not.) According to this interesting data from 2013 on TopRNtoBSN, it is stated that of the increasing number of active Vegans in the US, only 21 percent are male. There’s no arguing the last 4 years will have tightened that gap somewhat, but the discrepancy is startling. So is Veganism a female revolution? Let’s look at why the increase is so disproportionate, and the reasons why the male of the species may be a little reluctant to become Vegan. 5 reasons, to be precise. 5 Reasons Why Men Are Scared to go Vegan   1.”Bro – plants are not going to get me gains.” And from the outside, you can see why, right? Surely, consuming nothing but a plant based diet is somehow…lesser. Eating steak, consuming meat, drinking pints of egg whites is what makes you able to go that extra mile. But it’s really not. Protein can be found in a huge range of plants and is the core diet of some exceptionally ripped people. Not ‘gains’ focused? Fine. A vegan diet is generally considered healthier anyway. Go on. Ask anyone. 2. “Vegan? Bit…girly, isn’t it?” Well…no, it...

Meat Eaters, Vegetarians and Vegans – What’s The Beef?

Have you ever noticed how the topic of veganism always seems to spark a debate or even a down-right dirty name calling kerfuffle? Isn’t it strange that a social justice movement focused on reducing harm can cause so many frontal veins to burst? As veganism grows more mainstream, so does the social norm to hate on it, and it leads one to wonder whether it’s a form of collective guilt or simply a defence mechanism. We have very strong emotional ties with our diets and understandably many of us will feel upset or get defensive when ours is being critiqued....

Trump Pulls Out of The Paris Climate Agreement – But Who Gives a Covfefe?

Earlier this week President Donald Trump announced that the US would be withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement. What Trump called a ‘draconian’ international deal is actually an effort to reduce global warming. However, despite the US being the world’s second largest emitter of greenhouse gases, the President dropped out, stating that the policies were a threat to American business and the economy. Following the announcement, social media platforms have been flooded with outrage from across the globe. The agreement, partially brokered by Obama, had predicted that the US could reduce their emissions by 26-28% from 2005 levels by...

Vegan Leather Market Set to be Worth $85 Billion by 2025

According to a recent report by business consultancy, Grand View Research, the global faux leather market is set to be worth an incredible $85 billion by 2025. As demand for animal-free leather goods is predicted to rise (perhaps due to consumers making more conscious spending choices), sectors such as footwear, furniture and automotive companies seem to follow suit. On the supply side, we have seen many large companies such as Tesla and Ferrari developing vegan-friendly automotive interiors and evolving startup Piñatex, which are known for innovating leather substitutes from pineapple leaf fibres. In addition to this, the footwear section is...

Mental Health & Compassionate Living with Rhian HY | aka WIFELIFE

Not long ago we had the chance to catch up with YouTuber, Rhian HY (aka WIFELIFE). Amongst other things, Rhian’s area of expertise lies predominantly within vegan & cruelty free living; which in itself can say a lot about a person.

In fact, not only has she opened up about her own mental health journey, she has extended her compassion to her viewers by running a series entitled “A Safe Place“, where her followers...

Food, Travel and Ethical Values With YouTube’s Abdullah Zeinab | aka The Glucose Network

“Veganism is one of the biggest things. The easiest thing I can do. I’m directly in control of what I eat and a large part of my life is spent eating food. I try to check myself on the most basic things with compassion. Starting from the most basic level. I try and get that right for everything and every time I make a choice, I try to make sure I’m making the best decision at that time. That it’s rooted in a good intention, from a positive place”   Recently I had the pleasure of catching up with Abdullah...

Social Media Calls Out The Meat Industry

Facebook and Twitter are perfect platforms for the general public to voice their opinions and has arguably given consumers a lot of insight into industries which were previously much less transparent. The meat industry though, remains opaque, although the very fact that so much goes on behind closed doors has piqued the interest of many social bods and subsequently resulted in relentless criticism of their practices. “Social media is seen as the industry’s worst nightmare” said Ted Bilyea at the World Meat Congress last year. Scathing public criticism of the industry is rife and leaves the meaty-moguls with a seemingly...

Top 10 Vegan Protein Powders For Optimal Athletic Performance

Many gym-goers, vegan or not, are beginning to opt for plant-based proteins in place of the more commonly used milk-derived powders (Whey and Casein). Athletes such as German Strongman Patrik Baboumian, NFL Defence lineman David Carter, Ultra Runner Scott Jurek and general fitness enthusiasts are reaping the rewards of plant-based nutrition in more ways than one and they certainly don’t have any trouble building their muscle. In fact a number of successful sports personalities claim that avoiding meat and dairy as a protein source has left them with higher energy levels and all-round better recovery times. Some benefits of choosing plant protein over...

The Dairy Industry Fears Plant Milk is a ‘Serious Threat’

Earlier this month leaders in the Dairy industry gathered in Chicago for their annual conference to discuss business challenges and set future plans. Conference attendees included various decision makers, manufacturing bodies and marketers, including American Dairy Products Institute and the American Butter Institute. Interestingly, one of the business challenges they touched upon was the rising popularity of plant-based milks. “I think the threat is very serious”, says CEO of Select Milk Producers, Mike McCloskey – “many people have stolen the identity of milk over the years.” McCloskey goes on to (seemingly) refer back to last year’s legislative fiasco where...

Writer, thespian, vegan activist, and son of a hunter, Alfredo Meschi leads an interesting life. Born in a small town in Tuscany, Meschi, who previously worked for the likes of IBM has now dedicated his time to speaking out against speciesism. Alfredo is covered head to toe in 40,000 tiny tattoos of black crosses, each carefully inserted with vegan ink. “Why do I have 40,000 tattoos? Because 40,000 non-human animals are slaughtered in the world every second, just to satisfy our appetites.” 40,000 Tattoos For 40,000 Lost Lives To look at his body and visualize it next to his words can...

Former US President, Barack Obama Believes We Should Reduce Meat Consumption

Earlier this week, the former US President, Barack Obama publicly discussed the controversial topic of climate change and its links with animal agriculture. Despite the majority opinion from the current administration being skeptical of climate change all together, Obama used this summit as an opportunity to touch on the relationship between our eating habits, environmental damage and global food scarcity. Speaking with Sam Kass, (ex Nutrition Policy Advisor and Michelle Obama’s Assistant Chef for the Let’s Move! campaign) at the Seed & Chips Global Food Innovation Summit in Milan this Tuesday, he said, “Our changing climate is already making it more...

The Importance of Bees and How To Save Them From Extinction

Bee populations have been decreasing steadily across the globe over recent years, and with a ginormous 44% loss between 2015 and 2016 in the U.S. alone, it seems that now is a more crucial time than ever to find effective methods to protect them. The National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) states that “Researchers are calling the mass disappearance ‘Colony Collapse Disorder'” and that “The number of hives in the United States is now at its lowest point in the past 50 years”. Why Are Bee Populations Declining? Whilst researchers are still theorizing the main cause of colony collapses, it is widely recognized that environmental damage is...

Vegan Currywurst Capital | Berlin, Germany

Generally known for being free-thinking activists and pursuing the fight for equality, Berliners are among some of the most progressive groups of people in Europe. In some cases, it seems, their values have also extended towards the lives of pigs and other animals; apparent by the increase in veggie restaurants and the veganizing of Germany’s traditional fast-food dish, “Currywurst”. The vibe in Berlin is a perfect testament to the people who live there, and it’s a great place to be if you’re in need of quality vegan food with likeminded folk. Do keep in mind however that the German diet is generally quite meat-heavy, so...

6 Cruelty Free Sprays for Cleaning Your Home

It’s not something we often think about when we’re doing our grocery shopping. Animal Testing. Unfortunately even in the cosmetic and household/cleaning product industry, lab testing on animals is extremely common and for the most part, standard-industry-practice. But why? No useful knowledge can be gained from pouring bleach into the tear ducts of a bunny (a species whose genes, and subsequently their chemical reactions, are vastly different to ours). This alone makes animal-toxicity tests scientifically obsolete. The good news is, you don’t have to take part in it and simply by opting for cruelty free alternatives, you can stop funding the industries...

4 Festival Friendly Deodorants for Men and Women

Pee-yeww! Anyone else smell that? So, what’s the stink when it comes to vegan pits? Well, if you’re newly vegan and switching to a cruelty free deodorant, you may want to keep in mind that your body chemistry is likely to be going through changes in reaction to your new diet. This means that the naturally occurring chemicals in your sweat will probably smell a little different too. Think of it as a ‘cleansing phase’ and be patient while you excrete the unwanted toxins from previously absorbed animal proteins. Soon enough your body will regulate itself back to a normal...

Berry Lazy Oatmeal

We should probably pre-warn you that if you eat your breakfast when you get into the office, then you may want to do a quick pocket-mirror check once you’re done munching this one. A recurring scenario seems to arise mid conversation with coworkers; their gaze lowers slightly and stays there a bit longer than normal…. “Is that a new lipstick?” “Um.. no?” ..Just some very patchy blueberry stains. Regardless, porridge is our ride-or-die breakfast here at LK because oats are packed full of protein which makes the stuff is ideal for a boost of energy pre or post work out. Toppings are...

8 Tips for Surviving as a Vegan in Japan

Finding vegan options in Japan isn’t the easiest task, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the language. Nowadays with Western food infiltrating store shelves across Asia, you may find the majority of menu items all a bit “meat heavy”. That being said, you can be confident in knowing that it is entirely possible to eat vegan in Japan; and you don’t need to miss out on experiencing cultural cuisines when doing so. 8 Tips for Surviving as a Vegan in Japan Traditionally ramen is cooked in a meat-based broth so it is better to search vegan ramen shops in advance Dashi (fish stock) and Bonito (fish...

Virtuously Plant Based Pizza | Vancouver, Canada

You’d be hard pressed to find a person who doesn’t like pizza. Pizza is the food version of Ryan Gosling because NO ONE hates that guy and he’s also pretty tasty. Needless to say, pizza is a staple part of my diet which is why I was so excited about the opening of Virtuous Pie in Vancouver BC not too long ago. Healthy pizza, you say? Well that can’t taste good. Who’d want a pizza made of plants? Actually it turns out quite a lot of people. Judging by frequent queues of hungry souls tailing down the sidewalk from the restaurant door, it...

How Not to Die by Michael Greger MD – Book Review

How Not to Die is an in depth piece of non-fiction constructed by Dr Michael Greger MD, with the vision to disseminate the current truths about nutrition. Throughout the book, a myriad of diseases are mentioned (from osteoporosis to diabetes, lung disease, high blood pressure, cancers of all kinds, joint pains, asthma… I could go on) and the deeper you get, the more you begin to realize that these chronic illnesses are strongly associated with our own dietary choices. The book is thick, but sectioned into easily digestible categories discussing both the problems we are facing and the solutions we can...

Quick and Easy Scrambled Tofu

Eggs used to be something I couldn’t imagine giving up. For most people removing animal products from their diet it’s the cheese, but for me it was eggs; specifically scrambled. This is where scrambled tofu comes in. It’s SUPER easy to make, tastes similar to eggs, if not better, and isn’t packed full of cholesterol. In fact it’s full of protein, calcium and iron. Quick and Easy Scrambled Tofu   INGREDIENTS – 175g extra firm tofu – Teaspoon of oil (or water, depending on preference) – Handful of baby spinach – Handful cherry tomatoes – 2 slices wholemeal bread...

Cheese! Are You Actually Addicted? (And Some Other Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Dairy)

Let’s admit it; we have a love affair with the stuff. Cheese between bread, cheese with meat, cheese paired with wine, cheese on top of salads, cheese melted into stuff, cheese flavoured snacks, cheese stuffed into the crusts of four-cheese pizzas. It’s everywhere. Cheese! Are You Actually Addicted?   As pleasurable as some may find it, so are many other foods which we are far less fanatical about… so what’s different? The answer here is a little thing called Casomorphin; aka protein fragments from the milk protein, Casein. Casein breaks down during digestion where the peptide, Casomorphin is formed...

Environ(mental) Shifts | How To Live Eco-Friendly By Changing The Way You Think

Like many, I had always considered myself an animal lover and someone who cared about the environment. I vividly recall having a Filofax on Orcas which I would sometimes take to school with me (ever the cool-kid) and read a million times over in fascination, and when the photographer for a local newspaper interviewed me after winning a kids’ modelling competition asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” I  answered, “I want to travel the world and save the animals”.. (I’m also pretty sure it wasn’t just me who got emotional watching Michael Jackson’s video...

Warming Butternut & Kale Risotto

One of my all time favourite meals has to be risotto – I’m a huge lover of rice-based dishes; sweet or savoury, and have recently (unintentionally) converted my better half from feeling indifferent about the stuff to now often favouring it over pasta.

Raw Salted Caramel Vegan Cheesecake

Cheesecake is my ride or die when it comes to desserts and I honestly would have said there wasn’t a better after dinner treat, until I discovered the cheese-free version. It’s just as, (if not more) decadent than any other cheesecake I’ve tried…and requires minimal effort – so if you are as terrible at baking as I am, well, what more could you ask for? Raw Salted Caramel Vegan Cheesecake INGREDIENTS – 1 cup rolled oats or oat flour – Dates (30 + or about 20 Medjool) – Dried apricot halves (8-10) – Chia seeds (2 flat tbsp) –...

Kale and Root Soup

Isn’t soup just the perfect thing to eat when you’re feeling run down, tired (and too lazy to chew)?

Kickstarter Protein Porridge

It’s a common misconception that A) plants don’t have protein and, B) because of this vegans and vegetarians are protein deficient. Needless to say, this is not true & many plants have full amino acid profiles (sweet potato being king here) – this recipe is a perfect example of that; packing in a whopping 60% of my RDA according to cronometer so is a perfect, high-energy way to start your day or end a work-out.

High Protein Coconut Snack Balls

My favourite chocolate bar as a kid was either Snickers or Bounty – I LOVE  a Bounty.. Not everyone is a fan of coconut, but those people are just plain wrong. Since my mid-teens I have grown out of my sweet tooth and rarely crave desserts or sugary snacks – but when I do, this is the kind of thing I go for… they aren’t quite Bounty alternatives, but trust me they are just as delicious. High Protein Coconut Snack Balls   INGREDIENTS – 20 medium dried, pitted dates (15 Medjool) – Desiccated coconut (you’ll need a decent amount...

The Ultimate Vegan Breakfast For Hungover People

Waking at midday, dry-mouthed, bleary eyed and ravenous for something greasy – Hangovers… we’ve all been there. Naturally most of us will wake up with a craving to eat something energy-dense with the power to see us through until the evening (so we can spend the rest of the day asleep); hence the aptly named ‘Hangover Breakfast’.
