i’m so frustrated

i feel full all the time but i’m not eating enough and it’s making me gain weight (i realize that sounds backwards but that’s how my body reacts). i’m having 3 squares and eating tons of fruits and veggies, it’s not like i’m turning into a junk food vegan. but i’m shaking so badly during class that i can’t write properly. it’s so hard because everything i eat is ridiculously filling but it’s also low in calories and i feel like i’ve stuffed my face the whole day but i’ve only had 900 calories

i’m having to log it for my concepts of fitness class and i’m pretty sure i’m going to get a bad grade but i physically can’t eat any more than i already am

this is stupid

my new friends are so sweet! i forgot to tell you

yesterday before i got my nose pierced they surprised me by taking me to this cute vegan/organic/local market downtown where they had unbelievable amounts of delicious, nutritious, and completely vegan foods! it was so super sweet, not to mention fun.

they’re awesome :’)

oh and this other guy won’t shut up about me being a vegan, he brings it up constantly in this really condescending manner

he’s dumb

i want to punch him in the face

Sorry if you've already answered this but, what made you decide to go vegan?


no you’re fine sweetie! :)

i’m actually sort of a bleeding heart about most things and i’ve gone vegetarian and everything before, but i was forced out of it by my parents who didn’t approve of that lifestyle. 

but after reading about the conditions that even laying hens— who aren’t even necessarily slaughtered for meat— live in, i couldn’t eat animal products anymore. i found out that when laying hens stop laying eggs, they’re starved of food, water, and sunlight so that their survival instincts kick in and they lay one last batch, and then they die and are thrown away. often they don’t ever see sunlight and they’re stored with six other hens in cages that are only about a square foot.

anyway. i don’t want to bore you. i just realized that so many people are worried about their carbon footprint and so few are worried about their killing footprint. in short, i can eat just as healthily and happily without supporting the people who are fundamentally torturing innocent animals and taking lives, so for me there was no reason to continue it. :)

revmetabolism replied to your post: my vegan brownies were very popular with my… how did you make them? im curious

this is my recipe! :)

    • 2 c. all purpose flour
    • 2 c. crystallized sugar OR 3/4 cup agave nectar (you can use a char-free brand of white sugar, but many brands are not vegan because of processing)
    • 3/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder (I added a little extra by making them heaping scoops— more chocolate is better in my book!)
    • 1 tsp. baking powder
    • 1 tsp. salt
    • 1 c. soy milk or almond milk (the original recipe calls for water but soy milk makes it richer and less likely to be watery!)
    • 1 c. vegetable oil
    • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Mix flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Then, pour in soy milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Whisk together until the ingredients are fully blended.
  3. Pour into a 9x13” baking pan, and bake for 30 minutes (the website specified to wait until the top is no longer shiny but mine were perfect after 30 minutes!). Let cool for 10 minutes, cut, and enjoy.
