I recently discovered a really cool place in Nashville that happens to be up the street from me – Green Thumb Nursery & Landscape.  A while back at the Ki of Life Gala I got to take home a lovely Phalaenopsis (moth orchid) and I needed a new pot to put it in.  I figured [...]

Ahhh, Thanksgiving.  The time of year when I get asked frequently about what I’m making and if I have any good recipes.  Some might be surprised to find that I go the pretty traditional route on Thanksgiving.  I mean, I guess Tofurky doesn’t seem traditional for some, but considering I’ve been enjoying it every year [...]

I just took a trip out to my homeland of Northern California for the San Francisco Green Festival.  The journey had many highlights, but one that really stands out is my lunch with the VegNews Magazine crew.  The weather was incredible and we got to sit outside on the sidewalk just steps away from the [...]

Don’t miss Whale Wars, which has its debut on Animal Planet tonight.  I was lucky enough to see a preview of this show at AR 2008 and I’ve been eagerly anticipating it since.  The ad I saw the other day literally gave me chills.  Can’t wait!  Seriously, don’t miss it. I could go on and [...]

We are also losing my [...]

Costa Rica Vegan Style! by: Marina Kuperman I’ve been traveling throughout Latin America for years and one thing I have noticed is that even though vegetarianism and veganism are practiced throughout these countries, the actual idea of it just isn’t vocalized as much.
