Minimalist blogging is the process of focusing on quality over quantity. As a society, we’ve reached a point where there’s an oversupply of content on the internet. There are over 440 million blogs in the world! There’s an abundance of articles on “10 ways to do this” and “40 hacks to do that”, and I know because I’ve been contributing to this style of content for years.
While writing click-worthy headings with long lists like 30 Must-Read Articles If You’re Transitioning To Becoming a Minimalist, can be powerful in attracting an audience, I feel that people are increasingly drawn to honest, down-to-earth stories and real-life experiences. I know at least, I’m interested in this kind of content more and more. I love scrolling through Medium and reading posts that are not trying to hit a home run all the time. / Read More »
I’ve been working on this easy vegan tiramisu that also happens to be a gluten-free recipe for months, and I’m thrilled with it! I wanted to create one that didn’t have weird ingredients or young coconut flesh that needs to be chiseled out of a coconut! I don’t know about you, but it would take me about half an hour, a whole lot of mess and most of the time a bent knife to get that stuff out. Not worth it. I know I must not be doing it right, but I just don’t bother with it.
This one like many of the other more traditional recipes we’ve shared such as the baklava, chestnut puree, or sacher torte from my childhood – didn’t imagine that they would be a part of my vegan lifestyle. But I was wrong. I have so many other European recipes that I plan on experimenting with and veganizing them this year (if they aren’t already) and create what will be our first published cookbook! We’re hoping to have it be available early to mid-2019. With our manifesto book now finished, we’ve created some space to delve deep into our plans for our next project. We know you have all been waiting for a cookbook, even thinking our manifesto was a cookbook (sorry about that) but The Minimalist Vegan book was something that we wanted to publish first as we felt that it was an important message and worthy book to write to prime our mindsets. / Read More »
We’re so excited to share our first published book with you – The Minimalist Vegan: A Simple Manifesto On Why To Live With Less Stuff And More Compassion.
We became minimalists in 2014 after reading about it for years before on blogs like Zen Habits and Becoming Minimalist. Minimalism has completely changed the way we define success for ourselves. Previously we thought life was about accumulating more things, whether it was big assets like houses and cars, or small products like clothes and kitchenware.
Having more gave us a sense of security. You know, “Just in case” something was to happen, we would have more money and more things to fall back on.
Minimalism has shifted our paradigm to appreciate and want less, so we can ultimately spend more time doing what we truly want to do.
We also became vegans overnight in 2014 after watching a documentary called EARTHLINGS. Veganism has taught us to think beyond ourselves and how our actions impact the world around us. While veganism is about eliminating harm, death, and suffering to animals, it’s also a vehicle to better support humanity by fighting for love and equality. / Read More »
After picking up a promising-looking treat at the grocery store, the question inevitably arises: Is it vegan? Your natural response is to turn the package around and glean what you can from the nutrition label. If the ingredients list checks out, you’re good to go — right?
The depth of your research into the products you consume is largely based on your purpose and personal interpretation of what it means to be a vegan. Plenty of vegans use the strict definition of veganism as a guide; they “will not eat or use animal products.” The tenets of mindful consumerism often fall by the wayside. / Read More »
The discussion of a plant-based lifestyle and how it can help your health has been a hot topic for a few years now. With movies like Forks Over Knives and What The Health being known to challenge omnivores into a different way of thinking, there are so many reasons to switch over today.
As heart disease has been the number one cause of death in the US for the past 80 year, we need to start thinking about why nothing has changed and why millions of people die from the disease each and every year. / Read More »
