Moral Schizophrenia

Inspired by the
vegcomic.com post Double (Cheeseburger) Standard, I realized we are all, at one time or another, guilty of Moral Schizophrenia (when one promotes a certain set of moral values, but acts in way that conflicts with these values). Using vegcomic’s example, one would be morally schizophrenic if they loved animals and decried animal abuse,…




O’Noir Oh My Lord – Eating in the Dark

My wife and I were in Montreal this past weekend and decided to eat at a place we’ve both wanted to check out for a while. I don’t normally write about the great places we have eaten, but this place is different and cool on so many levels.
If you haven’t heard of O’Noir you might…




Diet Mistakes

Do you beat yourself up over consuming something that you said you wouldn’t eat? I haven’t drank coffee in a couple of years to avoid caffeine and inadvertently just ate a raw bar that had cocoa in it, which means I just got a dose of caffeine. I thought it was a berry bar and…




A Vegan Reviews the 4-Hour Body

Why I Love Growing and Eating Home Sprouts

Over the last year, my diet has been migrating to a primarily raw food diet (as well as gluten free and vegan of course). These days, probably about 80% of the food I eat is raw and sprouts are one of my favorite types of food.
I grow my sprouts at home and enjoy a wide…

Nutrition – In the Raw

My good friend and life mentor, Aaron Ross, recently spent a week at a raw food nutrition retreat. Here he writes about how it impacted his health (he experienced immediate results) and also has a video interview with a woman who’s beating stage 4 cancer through nutrition and mental practices. Can I get an Amen…
