Healing, Compassion, Evolution, & Rediscovering Oats

Happy Halloween! Today also marks the three year anniversary of the cycling accident in Los Angeles which completely shattered my right knee, placing me in a wheelchair for over a year and preventing me from returning home to my very busy life in New York City. As such, I now think of this time as my “rebirthday” since my entire existence was forever changed on that day and I was bound to begin all over again from virtually naught. During the initial time of the accident, I was absolutely terrified of...

In Memoriam

Despite an abundance of elaborate recipe shares and various documentations of food experimentation found on this site’s blog (as well as my alternative blog on Tumblr, Instagram, Facebook, & other social media profiles), most of the time I actually prefer the sweet simplicity of fresh organic fruit in rudimentary form during the peak of its season. Yesterday, on what would have been my dearly beloved Godfather’s 92nd birthday, I received a lovely surprise whilst enjoying some of life’s...

In fact, after nearly an entire...

Over the course of time since having begun my transition into veganism in 1990, I have periodically chosen to alter my lifestyle in various ways for different reasons (which is essentially how I evolved to eliminate gluten, refined sugar, cooked, and acid forming foods from my diet). I am not actually a devotee of the 80/10/10 LFRV (low fat raw vegan) ideology (especially not since...

Science & Spirituality of (Raw) Veganism

Very recently, I posted a piece via the Dark Stardust blog about Earthlings and politics surrounding the vegan lifestyle. In that post I discussed ways in which true veganism goes far beyond food, and touched upon how many other factors are to be considered as part of the equation. I concluded the post with an embedded version of the Earthlings film for all to view in its entirety (free of charge), and strong recommendation for anyone who has not seen the film to do so.  That having been addressed, I would now...
