Concsious Uncoupling

Conscious Uncoupling: The most Googled word for the last few days

GPPeople have been criticizing Gwyneth Paltrow for her “Conscious Uncoupling” and the reasons why she got divorced, but we should ask ourselves if maybe she is the normal one.

Who is normal? Someone who wants to feed her children healthy food like quinoa cereal or GMO infested Kellogg’s? Someone who practices Kabbalh or someone who gives cotton candy and chicken nuggets to their kids?

I’m not a mother yet, but maybe we should all think about that.

I wish the best luck to Gwyneth Paltrow. You go girl, stick with your raw food because you look great!

A Vegan History

I saw this on New York Magazine and felt it would be good to share, as I do like a bit of history :~D
Vegan Society founder, Donald Watson, created the term ‘Vegan’ for people who were milk-and-egg-free vegetarians.
Here are a couple of highlights in vegan history:
1944
“Rejecting reader suggestions like “dairyban” and “sanivore,” Watson picks “vegan” as the name for a nondairy, eggless, vegetarian diet. Also dismissed: “vegetarian” and “fruitarian,” because they’re two words “already associated with societies that allow the ‘fruits’ of cows and fowls.”
“1969
Bearded bohemian guru Father Yod opens the Source restaurant, a vegan hot spot on L.A.’s Sunset Strip that attracts celebrity eaters from Marlon Brando to John Lennon.”
2008
“Celebrity ellen degenerese, portia de rossi, veganveganism’s tastemakers Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have a vegan wedding catered by chef Tal Ronnen, who the same year prepares Oprah’s 21-day vegan cleanse, meant to remind the media mogul “how the food we consume every day got to be on our plates.”
2009
Alicia-Silverstone_-2013-American-Music-Awards--03“Alicia Silverstone’s (One of Vegan Divas favorites!) vegan cookbook The Kind Diet tops theTimes best-seller list. “I just didn’t know my potential at the time,” the Clueless star says of her pre-vegan film days.”
A nice, quick little piece that’s informative!

Alicia Silverstone

Alicia Silverstone, actress of films, TV and plays, is a favorite of ours and we are a favorite of hers!
She became a vegan in 1998, after attending an animal rights meeting. She stated “I realized that I was the problem – I was an animal lover who was eating animals.” As well as being an animal rights activist she is an environmental activist also.  And in 2004, Silverstone was voted “Sexiest Female Vegetarian” by PETA.
