for all u vegans out there

5 vegan tips

1. Do your research
Research and expand your knowledge on veganism! Find out about vegan youtubers, local vegan restaurants around you, recipes, articles and so much more! Before going on a road trip this fall, I was researching on all the fast food restaurants to find out what vegan options they offered. And let me tell u, this was VERY useful! Once I gained my knowledge on what is not vegan and what is, I got a general idea of what I can eat. So now when people offer me things that aren’t vegan, I don’t have to read the ingredients like a maniac, I just kindly reject. Also finding a vegan community online can be very helpful and supportive!

2. Try new vegan recipes
I challenge you to try at least 1 new vegan recipe every week. This will help you get a feel of what food you like, and make it easier for u to cook. I suggest even getting a cook book. For ex. Forks over knifes. This book gave me great food ideas and sometimes I switch up recipes to make them my own.

3. Stock up on fruits and veggies
This is so you always have something on hand. This will prevent you from running to the store constantly. Normally I go to the store once a week and get all the basics: fruits, veggies, almond milk, and 1 frozen dinner. Normally I buy big boxes of rice and pasta 1 a month and then I use my fruits and veggies to make meals out of them, I use the almond milk for random things, and I get the frozen dinner for when I have that lazy weekday. Sometimes I get tofu but it all depends. My grocery list is pretty cheap and far from expensive. Always having fruits and veggies on hand with make it easier to whip up a meal real quick.

4. Make sure you’re getting your calories in
As a healthy vegan, you have to make sure you are getting enough calories in that your body needs. Being vegan it is easy to under eat, especially if you’re new to this lifestyle. At first you’re so used to the mind set of eating smaller portions, because animal products are heavy, and very calorie dense. But on a vegan diet things tend to be lighter, and less calorie dense. So after saying this, make sure to eat eat eat those fruits and veggies, and don’t shy away from bigger portions.

5. Be happy
Try to be happy despite all the animal abuse that continues on. Be happy because you are truly making a difference! You are helping the environment, animal, and your body!

Hi my name is Tyger All’Women’Are’Women Downwithcis Way and I’m a short-haired, heavy-set, food-safe semi-vegan and a lot of people tell me I look like Laverne Cox (AN: if u don’t know who she is get da hell out of here!). I’m not related to Cherno Biko but I wish I was because he’s a major fucking hottie. I’m a trans lesbian but my teeth are straight and white. The LGBTQAIPD+ community means a lot to me. I’m also a student, and I go to a school which may or may not exist where I’m in the third year (I’m twenty-three ). I’m a butch trans lesbian (in case you couldn’t tell) and I’m not into clothes, not into make-up. I love transadvocate and I get all my discourse from there. For example today I told a terf that cis lesbians are the real killers of trans women and str8 men are completely blameless. I was saying that they had killed 10,000 transwomen and that our blood was on their hands. I was walking outside one of the most queer-friendly campuses in Canada. It was snowing and raining so there was no sun, which I was very happy about. A lot of terfs stared at me. I put my middle finger up at them.

Do u get scared meeting new people that u don't know at all and hanging out? would love to get food or something as I don't know many vegans at all but I'm kinda like eeeee x

sometimes at first but i find myself a lot more comfortable around complete strangers, like if I’m introduced to someone through someone I tend to get a lot more anxious/not myself as opposed to if it’s a complete stranger :)

hi all! so a few months ago i made a handy shopping list for vegans (but really, for anyone!), and enjoyed it so much that i started drawing up and drawing out plans for more infograph type things. besides the “WHERE DO U GET UR PROTEIN” question, the one i get asked most frequently is “how do you make tofu do the thing?” and in this little guide, i tell you how to make tofu do the thing!!

these are all pretty basic instructions + ideas for flavorings. by no means are they law, nor a guarantee your tofu will come out amazing or taste great. this is what has worked for me! if i can’t cook for as many people as i want to, i would like to share what knowledge i’ve learned from my experiences. 

likes/reblogs/comments are all appreciated!! xxx

im also gonna jump on the bandwagon & tell u abt my punk gf. when i met her she wore like victoria's sectret sweatpants & listened 2 taylor swift like she was so not a punk at all she barely knew what punk was but we started goin out & i turned her into a hxc straight edge vegan kid & now she's more punk than i am. she's so cute she's really grumpy all the time & hates goin outside but she loves me & i also love her. <3

THIS IS SO GOOD AHHH YOU TWO SOUND SO GOOD LEMME SEE PICTURES THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY!

(vegan, low-spoons, generally affordable) recipe for an edible hug:   instant mashed potatoes w - (ripped or chopped up/mixed in) breaded fake chicken (this is the most expensive part but theres cheapish ways 2 make ur own but then that cancels out the low spoons part so u could replace it w something else or just forgo it if u don’t wanna deal w that) - broccoli, - corn, - peas (i used frozen 4 all veg) seasoned with - parsley (i used dried) - salt - garam masala **this is key to the hug, i think you could sub allspice or 5 spice if u couldn’t get it for some reason - nutritional yeast (also a lil spensy but not incredibly so. could probably sub margarine for olive oil for a similar effect) - garlic - a lil bit of onion (i used granulated 4 this and garlic) - black pepper - and a splash of olive oil   paired with - sweet mint tea (i used peppermint but if i had been thinking would probably have gone for moroccan mint or maybe a mixed mint)   consume while wearing a sweater and hat for best effect

Speaking of cafes, I went to a cat café once, but it wasn’t anything remarkable. I think the problem with the one I went to in Austin, was that it wasn’t big enough (rather small, actually), and the lighting was really dim. I forgot my glasses (big mistake) so I could hardly see the cats because the lighting was so bad & I didn’t have my glasses on. There were only two cats that came up to me, and since the café was so small, I was surrounded by other customers, and didn’t feel comfortable trying to push them out of the way to see the other cats close up (sometimes I have social anxiety, and it’s just…ehh). And the food was all vegan, which isn’t bad (at all!) bc u know I LOVE eating vegan stuff, but their menu options were not the best. It was all very basic, the kind of stuff you can make at home with Beyond Meat or Gardein products. Mainly just tacos and other TexMex stuff. I expected fresher food and more choices, but since they have to prepare the food in a food truck parked outside (the cats pose a cleanliness/safety hazard for food being cooked on the actual premises), I understand why it wasn’t exactly gourmet. I might go there again one day with my best friend, although I don’t think she’ll like any of the food, aha. All in all it was a good experience and the cat I cuddled with the most was missing an eye :( The poor thing. Most of the cats were rescues, and some of them were up for adoption! They had a merch shop in the front where you could buy clothes, collars, treats, and trinkets for your cat, and cute clothes for people as well. They also have cat cafes in New York and Arizona I think? The one in NY is probably heaps better lol

There’s just too many people on this planet with conflicting beliefs for everyone to become vegan any time soon. I can’t stand vegans who bash people because they’re not trying to be vegan. Shit doesn’t work that way. BUT, you can educate people and let them make their own decisions. Show them how awesome being a vegan is and all the benefits. I’m sure a huge majority of the population would love to become vegan if they were aware of all the bullshit that goes down at farms or all the lies the government feeds us (milk is good for u what???). But the truth is a lot of people don’t give a shit and they never will. Some people can’t do it at this time of their life… And guess what THATS OKAY So chill out every1. Spread knowledge and compassion not hate
