How to MENSTRUATE and SAVE THE PLANET

How to MENSTRUATE
and SAVE THE PLANET

Menstrual-Cup
Invest in a menstrual-cup.
1) The amount of uses you get out of one menstrual-cup
compared to tampons, makes it waaay cheaper in the long-run, so it basically pays for it self.
2) You won't have to worry about getting poisoned by the stuff inside tampons and having to amputate stuff below your waist, like your legs.
(yes, sadly, that is a real thing)
3) You won't be contributing to literally TONS of un-reusable waste that's killing the planet.
4) It's way easier, and more discreet, than having to always make sure you have a new tampon at the ready. With the menstrual-cup, you just pop it in, let it collect; then pop it out next time you go to the bathroom, pour it into the toilet, and pop it back in. VOILA! That's how easy it is.

I clean my menstrual-cup before and after my period starts and ends. In the middle of having my period, I just use some tissue to wipe off any blood left in the cup, between popping it out and in.
It might feel a little uncomfortable the first time, 
but for most people, once you get the hang of it, you won't even notice it's there.
Once my lady-parts widened up a little, after using it, it all became a breeze.
(I know that sounds bizarre, and maybe even horrifying, but trust me; It's a good thing. 😉 )

I have a MOONCUP
and I checked with that company, and it's cruelty-free and vegan.
They have FREE-DELIVERY EVERYWHERE.
(note: MoonCup does not ship to Italy and Israel)

If you opt for a different brand, I recommend you google, 
and/or ask the company about their policies and ingredients.

HILARIOUS MoonCup Video


Cloth-Pads
Investing in some cloth-pads makes a world of difference.

1) You're dramatically cutting your spendage on feminine-hygiene products in the long-run.
2) You won't be contributing to the TONS of un-reusable waste in the world.
3) Again, you won't be subjecting yourself to the toxins that are present in regular pads.
(mostly the high-brand ones actually, believe it or not 😱 )

 Another thing that might shock you about most regular pads and tampons, is that,
the toxins they put in them, to make them super-fancy, and "absorb better" or some BS like that,
is actually TESTED ON ANIMALS.
I know right, WHY??
WTF!

And it's actually the high-brand ones that are the worst when it comes to this.
They have SO much money, and they spend a lot of it on testing ALL THE INGREDIENTS that goes into their products, on animals.
Some of the cheaper ones don't add a bunch of toxins into their stuff, 
partly because they don't want to spend money on the animal-testing.
Making them much safer. 
So you're actually paying more to be exposed to unsafe and cruelty-ridden stuff.
Ironically enough.

So if you are going to opt for non-reusable stuff, at least google the brands you buy.
So 1) You won't be risking your health and life.
and 2) At least won't be contributing to torturing and enslaving innocent animals.


I usually use BOTH pad and cup. 
Just to make sure I don't fill it too quick and accidentally stain my panties slightly.
(Those stains might be small, but they are HARD to get out!)
Mostly though, throughout my experience of using a cup, it's more for the confidence of knowing that IF, I were to have the one in a million mini-spill, it won't go through my pants and affect my day.
A security-net if you will.

Here are some Cloth-Pad Brands that I found
GladRags
LunaPads

Link to a Review of many different Cloth-Pad brands
by Menstrual Cup Reviews .Net


Pain-Reliever

Invest in a Livia and gel-pads.
1) You won't be taking drugs that could hurt your body.
2) You won't be taking drugs that have animal-products in them.
3) You don't have to deny yourself pain-relief,
because you can't go over the limit of how many pain-pills you can take per day without getting sick.
4) It's immediate and safe pain-relief.
The electrical impulses the device gives you, is stopping the signals from your pain-area from reaching your brain, by acting as a "wall" of sorts, that the pain-signals can't get past.
Therefore, since you're brain is none the wiser, it won't tell your body to feel the pain.
(It's usually a good thing to have your brain tell your body to feel if you're in pain, in case you're suffering from a critical injury, and you need to do something about it. 
Like call for help or cover a bleeding wound or something. 
With period-cramps though, not so much. 
Knowing there is pain there, isn't going to help you or make your life more pleasant.)
5) It's vegan and cruelty-free. I checked with the creators of the product.


Fun-Fact: It's FDA approved. And you can buy it and have it shipped anywhere.

How to go Vegan | Step by Step

In the mood to try a more environmentally friendly, animal-loving food-habit?
But you feel like going through the change is daunting?
Let me help you! ^^
In this step by step manual, I'll guide you, 
based on my personal experience from going vegan myself. 

Step 1
Vitamin Up!
Something that I had to learn the hard way, and that you don't have to;
is how important multivitamins and supplements are.
When you go for a change in eating-habit, to make sure your body doesn't feel like you're depriving it of anything; taking vitamins is key.
This way, even though you're introducing your body to new sources of nutrients, it won't feel like you've suddenly stopped giving it something it needs.

For me, personally, this made all the difference.
Before getting my vitamins in, I would CONSTANTLY be thinking about the things I was no longer eating. Hard-core, EVERY DAY. And EVERY NIGHT. Thoughts of eating cheese and meat infested my dreams on a constant loop.
Which is very unpleasant when eating those things repulses you.
Don't feel bad about yourself, if you have those thoughts. It just means your body is trying to get you to feed it something it needs. And going vegan, just means you need to feed it those nutrients and vitamins and minerals through new foods.

I was also very tired all the time.
Not because I was going vegan necessarily; before making the change, I was a very unhealthy eater, I never took vitamins (should have ofc, most people need to) and my meals consisted of ready-made packet reheats and fast-food. All very low in nutrients and all the good stuff the body needs to keep on top of it's game.

There are so many choices in vegan multivitamins and supplements now.
Take advantage of it, and rule the world! ^^

Step 2
Get a Vegan Cookbook!
My world opened up crazily when my mom got me a vegan cookbook.
Before going vegan, as I said, I barely cooked 
(I do not think reheating or adding water counts as cooking xD)
And I had a dim view of what I could eat now that I was going vegan.
I legit thought I had to eat a lot of salad, and that was it xD
Turns out, I was wrong, Thank G ;)

Before buying a cookbook I'd recommend browsing through it,
to see if the ingredients sound like it would suit your pallet.
Also check out the reviews.
I'm not a huge fan of chickpeas, and I'm allergic to avocado, 
so I make sure cookbooks I get, are low on those things x)
I also check if I like the way it's written, and if it's easy to follow.
Nothing more annoying than trying to cook a bomb meal,
but the recipe sounds like a different language trying to teach you heart-surgery.

I also try to get books that don't rely heavily on hard-to-get or expensive items.
A lot, and I mean A LOT (most) vegan food, can be made of the stuff 
you find readily available, at your local grocery-store.

If you're not much of a book person, or if buying a cookbook isn't in your budget right now;
No worries! I got you covered! ^^
Here are some cool, free vegan recipe websites that'll give you all the goodness! ^^


And of course, you should totally check out my original recipes,
that you can find right here, on this blog! ^^

Things to look out for when going vegan:
(a list of things to avoid)

- Gelatin (made from animal bones)
- Dairy (Milk from animals, also look out for yogurt/milk-powder in pastries)
- Meat (ALL meats, also seafood and poultry)
- Eggs
- Palm-Oil (palm-tree industry destroys habitats and kills off animals)
- Honey (also beeswax)
- Animal-Tested Consmetics
- Cosmetics and food that contain ingredients made from bugs
(Cosmetics that pledge to be cruelty-free and vegan are best)
- Leather
- Fur
- Feathers
-  Certain types of wool (Angora, and farms that mistreat their animals)
- Silk


Humans are creatures of habit, and changing habits might feel hard.
Don't be too hard on yourself, take it one day at a time, 
and soon enough, you'll reach your goals! ^^

2 WAYS to CUT BILLS and SAVE THE PLANET

2 WAYS to CUT BILLS 
and SAVE THE PLANET


Electrical-Sockets
Always plug out your stuff from your electrical sockets when you go to bed.
That's a whole night worth of sleep, that you're not using them, 
and having them plugged in is costing you money.

You could also save even more money, and the environment further;
by always plugging out electronics, when you stop using them, during the day too.





Dishes
Reuse your glass, if not actually dirty.
Most drinking-glasses could just use a little rinse, 
and they're basically fit for your next drink of choice.
This saves on both soap and water (and electric if you have a washing-machine).

I'm not suggesting to not give other people a clean glass of their own ofc,
but if you had a glass of OJ this morning, just rinse it after you're done, 
and you can use it for the next time you're thirsty.

I personally, can go days without changing my drinking-glass, 
and just rinsing it after I'm done drinking.
I often do the same with my plate, if it's not covered in stuff that will ruin my next meal.



Do you know of more ways to cut bills and save the planet?

Thai Green Curry | ONLINE RECIPES


Green Thai Curry

I bought some green curry-paste at the local Asian grocery-shop just the other day.
(I made sure it was vegan and palm-oil free)
And, because I'm a pasty white girl, and I have no clue how to make such wonderful gastronomic orgasms,
I googled recipes.

The choice fell on one on rasamalaysia.com (not vegan)
I've been having some trouble re-creating a vegan version, of one of my all-time fav restaurant dishes; the green curry. And have been (until this moment) convinced that I have just been doing it wrong; and that's why it hasn't turned out even remotely similar to what I fell in love with before going vegan, and basically stopped being able to eat out, because I live in a tiny town, in the middle of nowhere, and everything here caters to hungry hungry carnivores.
No but for real; WHY, do people put MILK in shit that you'd NEVER in a million years NEED to put milk in? Like PESTO. WTF.
Okay, rant over.
Back to the recipe.
After veganising this recipe, I realize, oh, you dumdum
THAI green curry, and, CHINESE green curry
ARE DIFFERENT THINGS.
My bad xD

Did I mention I'm a pasty white girl who doesn't know what she's doing?

But, for you out there, in the vast internet-verse, 
who actually INTEND on making vegan THAI green curry;
here's what I did to veganise the recipe linked from the website mentioned above.

Instead of chicken
1 green paprika pepper
1 yellow paprika pepper
1 red paprika pepper
2 medium-small carrots (that, let's face it HAD to be used in this recipe
not just cause they're awesome in curries, they are, but also 
for not going bad in my fridge reasons xD )
half a green squash

I de-veined the peppers, peeled the carrots
and cut all the veggies into nice strips

Instead of fish-sauce
1 and a half tablespoons of soy-sauce

I also just used half a tiny teaspoon of chili-powder instead of actual chillies.
Not for any particular well-thought-out reason, but because I forgot to get fresh ones x)

I hope you enjoyed my vegan take on that particular thai curry recipe
If you have any recommendations for other recipes, you think would ROCK my world

Dairy-Free Fudge | VEGAN CANDY-REVIEW

Dairy-Free Fudge

This fudge is real yummy.
My favourite kind of caramels/fudge is the kind where it's soft to chew, 
and doesn't stick to my teeth or the top of my mouth.
This fudge checks all those boxes.

I love the fact that there are companies out there who actually make cruelty-free candy; no palm-oil, no dairy, no meat (bone-based gelatin) and no honey, no bullshit;
that tastes just as good, if not better than it's non-vegan cruelty-ridden counterparts.

The flavour is very "milky" and round.
I'd definitely recommend it, and would buy again! ^^

PLAIN VEGAN YOGURT | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Plain Soy Yogurt

The product itself smells and tastes just like regular non-vegan yogurt.
I'm very impressed.

This Natural/Simply Plain version, is without added flavour, thus making it perfect for some personalized yogurt-time creative'ness. 
I for one: cocoa-/hot chocolate-powder and frozen berries all the way! :D

I used this product to add creamy'ness to an amazing, legit Italian, pasta-sauce recipe 
a friend showed me;
which worked well, although the yoghurt did add more of a pointy flavour to the dish, rather than round and creamy like something like vegan crème frãche would have added.

Food-Facts
100g
Ingredients: Water, Hulled soya beans (7.9%), Sugar, Calcium (tri-calciumcitrate), Stabiliser (Pectin), Acidity regulators (Sodium citrate, Citric acid), (Flavouring), Sea salt, Antioxidants (Tocopherol-rich extract, Ascorbyl palmitate), Yogurt cultures (S. thermophilus, L. bulgaricus), Vitamins (B12, D2)

Overall; I'm a big, big fan of Alpro, and their products;
they always taste yummy, just like their non-vegan counterparts, and without strange bi-flavours.
So if you're pondering about trying an Alpro product, GO FOR IT! ^^

Sriracha Broth Wok | ORIGINAL RECIPE

Sriracha Broth Wok!

Ingredients
5 tablespoons of roughly chopped Ginger-Root
5 cloves of roughly chopped Garlic-Cloves
0,75dl/0,3 cups of Soy-Sauce
3-5 tablespoons of Follow Your Heart's Sriracha Vegenaise
2dl/0,8 cups of water w/ 2 teaspoons of vegetable Bouillon-Powder
2 Green Paprika-Peppers, chopped into small squares
1 Broccoli, chopped into small bite-sized "wigs" (remove most of the stems)
1 Yellow-Onion chopped into small squares
Vegetable Oil (sesame cooking oil)
Rice (Jasmin or Basmati)

Rince your Rice off. Then put in a pot with water. Cook on max heat until it starts to boil.
Then lower the heat to minimum heat, let it sit.
When the Rice is starting to swell, pour off the water, 
and let the Rice continue to swell away from the heaters.
(The reason for this specific way to prep the Rice, 
is to minimize any harmful residue that naturally occur in rice, to make it's way onto your plate.)

Fry up Ginger-Root and Garlic in a pot/pan with Vegetable Oil, on high medium heat, 
for a couple of minutes.
Add Yellow Onion, fry until the Yellow Onion has gone slightly soft.
Add Broccoli and Green Paprika-Peppers, 
fry until the broccoli has gotten a even stronger green-colour.
Mix the Water w/Bouillon-Powder with the Soy-Sauce; Add to the pot/pan. Mix everything together.
Add Sriracha Vegenaise to the pot/pan; mix everything together thoroughly.

Let it cook for a couple of minutes. Then turn the heat off, and let the pot/pan sit on the plate for a little while to cool down a little.

And Voilá!
Bon Appétit!

This dish pair perfectly to Ginger-Ale Soda beverage-wise.
I prefer to use Hey! Bombay! Vegetable Bouillon-Powder, it's AMAZING! :D

Smoked Tofu | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Smoked Tofu
So far, in my vegan cookery, I've only used tofu to make Tacos.
(Because, boy, I love me some good tacos! :D )
First impression was one of astonishment, as the smoked tofu smelled just like those incredible smoked meat fair-booths. All in all; Mouthwatering.
I was so stoked, to find that the smoked-ness of it, translated into an extra round, 
rich flavour in the end result tacos.
I think this might be my absolute favourite tofu so far, 
I would heartily recommend!

Hot Dogs | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Wheaty Hot-Dogs
 For this dish, I decided to make my own Hot-Dog-Buns, as so many brands of Hot-Dog-Buns aren't Vegan (I mean, WHY do they insist on adding yogurt-powder to EVERYTHING?? WHY??)
 It turned out great, and these Wheaty Hot-Dogs were REAL yummy!
Very akin to non-vegan hot-dogs,flavour-wise,
but without any of the weird dead animal product bi-flavours.

I fried them in a pan, using Olive-Oil, Pepper and Salt.
It made them real savoury on the inside, and nice and crispy on the outside.
 Would buy again.

Food-Facts

I shared this particular foodie-experience with my mom,

The "meat" had no strange bi-flavours, and was very, very savoury.
Very nice. Will get, and cook again.

Teeny Tiny Sausages | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Wheaty Mini-Herbys
 I used these in this meal, to satisfy the hunger in our tummies.
I cooked them on high-medium heat, in Olive-Oil; spiced with some Salt and Pepper.
I turned them continuously, cooking them until they were golden-brown on the outside,
and their "skin" slightly crispy.

I think this is my favourite Wheaty Sausage so far. Very nice and unique flavour, 
and very "Real" Sausage -esk.
I was pleasantly surprised at how well they went with the Red Wine Sauce;
and this is a product that I have re-ordered as of now, and intend to cook again.

Lemon-Pepper Schnitzel | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Wheaty Schnitzel
This product is very much like Wheaty's Virginia Steak,
but it's up to you to set the spice-profile, 
as it is completely plain and meant to be spiced during cooking.
I chose to cook it up, high-medium heat, using Olive-Oil, and Lemon-Pepper Spice;
I paired it with boiled Potatoes, sprinkled with salt.
It turned out SO SO YUMMY; a definite win! ^^

Just like Virginia Steaks, I'd recommend 2 "Steaks"/Schnitzels per person, for a full dinner-meal.

"Meat" Medallions | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Wheaty "Meat" Medallions 
This is an AMAZING product!
If I didn't know, I wouldn't be any the wiser that this isn't real meat.
I cooked the medallions slowly on medium heat, in Olive-Oil, Salt and Pepper;
Flipping them continuously now and then, until they were golden-brown
I paired it with Baked Carrots, Boiled Broccoli and extra shallot'y Red Wine Sauce.

I had one packet of medallions, which contains 3.
It came up a little short as a 2 person meal.
And I ended up cooking up some Wheaty Mini-Herbys
the same way as the medallions, to satisfy our hunger.

Virginia Steak | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Wheaty Virginia Steak
This is by far, one of the yummiest dinners I've had EVER.
(Vegan AND otherwise!)
The instructions are super-easy to follow;
I accidentally used Olive-Oil when frying, and BOY am I glad I did!
It took everything to new levels of scrumptious!
I paired the dish with Boiled Potatoes, with some sprinkles of salt on top of 'em.
The "steaks" themselves tastes like spicy-seasoned cheese-schnitzels.
EPIC MEAL.
That's all I gotta' say.
EPIC!

You could have a 2 person meal with this, but since it's so good... :3
I'd definitely recommend buying so each person gets two "steaks" each! ^^

Curry Kebab | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Wheaty Curry Kebab
Just today, I had the pleasure of cooking up some Wheaty Curry Kebab for dinner.
The encasement comes with easy to follow "How to prepare" instructions.
In this particular product, two ways of prep was suggested.
One where you heat it up with Coconut-Milk or Vegan Cream, and stew with vegetables.
Another where you heat it up with spinach, nutmeg and mace.

After trying the first option, and finding the end-result a bland, super-mild concoction.
I opted to try to spice it up with the second suggestion; nutmeg.
Which definitely made the flavour better, and more pronounced.
Had I done this over again, I would have gone for the second-suggested prep-method.

And just like all the other Wheaty Products I've tasted;
No strange bi-flavours in their fake-meats.

VEGAN SEXY-REVIEW | GLYDE Strawberry CONDOM

The Strawberry-Condoms smells very nice.
It reminds me of very fresh and yummy non-fake strawberry-candy.
That Being said, it didn't taste like anything;
No bi-flavours, but also no strawberry-flavour.
The colouring came off on the genitals a smidge.
Incredibly durable and easy to put on;
Stretchy, and not slippery and uncooperative like some condoms.

GLYDE Condoms seem to work well for people who are usually allergic to 
non-vegan latex-products.
Their condoms are 100% Vegan, not only in ingredients, 
but also in every step of the process making the condoms.

This is a very good vegan cheese flavouring product.
It's perfect for taco-dishes; just fry it in, with the taco-spice mix.
And it gives a nice round, as if you had cheese with your taco, flavour.

Another thing I've discovered you can do with this product is;
Popcorn topping! :D
Just drizzle it on, as is. ^^

It's got a nice, cheddary-ish flavour.

ORGANIC Tofu! | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

This product is a new staple in my food-making tool-box.
It's super as a meat replacement.
I used it in a taco-dish, which was divine.

As promised, it was a naturell (without flavour of it's own) product.
Which is great for dishes where you want to determine the seasoning and flavour yourself.

I'd heartily recommend this product!
It's texture is just like scrambled meat, and is easy to fry up.
200g is perfect for a meal for 2-3 portions.

It doesn't expire for several months.
And can be stored in room-temperature.

Ingredients: water, soybeans * 20% coagulant (kalciumsulfat, nigari)
* Organic ingredient

Pizza-Flavoured Cheese | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

This product, much like it's friend "VioLife cheese for pizza, Original"
was a bust.
At least in my book.
Again, my mom liked it; ish (only in small amounts/thin layers)
This smelled preferable, compared to it's above mentioned friend.
Very classic pizza smelling.

The texture is just like regular non-vegan cheese.
It melts when heated.

Still, I'm not much of a fan; when I ate it, after a few mouth-fulls, 
the texture sort of crept up on me, and made me gag.

Ingredients: Water, coconut oil (23%), modified starch, starch, sea salt, vegan flavoring (contains celery), polyphenols, color: beta carotene
GMO-, SOY- and GLUTEN-FREE

Pizza-Cheese | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

I was so excited about this product.
I ordered it online, and was looking forward to making all kinds cheesy dishes with it.
Unfortunately; both the taste and the smell made me gag.
Silver Lining; My mom liked it.
Not so silver lining; Only in small amounts.
If you're making a dish with it, make it a thin layer.
I made a pizza with it, and my mom likes her pizza; thick with filling.
In this instance though, more was NOT merrier.
The thick layer became a rubbery-like substance, almost gelatinous.

So when using this cheese; less is more.
And, if you're not one who likes "unique" cheeses like, blue cheese for example
(I'm going by reference of which cheeses my mom likes in general, 
and am judging her taste-buds accordingly x)
this might not be the cheese for you.

The product melts when heated.
The texture is just like non-vegan cheese.
The smell is potent, very like stronger non-vegan cheeses.
The taste isn't as bad as the smell, but still, less is more. 

Ingredients: Water, coconut oil (21%), starch, modified starch, sea salt, flavourings, olive extract, colour: b-carotene, vitamin B12.
GMO-, SOY- and GLUTEN-FREE
