Just the Facts, Jack!

It takes 2500 gallons of water to make 1 pound of beef.

Food poisoning usually comes from meat.

Oreos are vegan.

Vegan “food” is generally low in calories.

Pigs are smarter than dogs.

Save the environment…something about killing less tress because they’re not cleared for growing crops to feed animals (Don’t we need crops to grow veggies…for vegans to eat?)


I’m sure there are tons of more friendly vegan facts that would easily convert you from eating delicious steak and bacon pizza, but I’m still not convinced. I love my veggies don’t get me wrong, especially trying different ones I’ve never heard of or that I flat out refused to eat when I was younger…like brussel sprouts, man they are AMAZING!! I’m all about living a healthier lifestyle, I wish I had the willpower to do it myself but I could not give up chicken. I did give up beef for 2 months because cows are just so darn cute…but that veggie burger that tastes like Raccoon Poop just couldn’t compete with the burgers on the grill!

Vegan “Butter”

»Posted by on Jul 27, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

We were watching TV this weekend and I see a commercial for “I Cant Believe It’s Not Butter” and there’s all different kinds now, like low sodium, low carb….and one for vegans. What do you put vegan “butter” on? Vegan bread? Isn’t that basically putting garbage on cardboard? This confuses me so much.  Kinda like Raccoon Removal Melbourne, pasta made out of zucchini…which is not pasta at all, its not even the same texture or even close…like putting worms in your mouth and not vomiting. Now I will openly admit my eating habits are absolute garbage, so I should not pass judgement…but clearly I don’t care.  I try to be an open minded person, sometimes I fail at now..vegan fake butter..smh.

Get a job, you dirty hippie!!!

When my oldest brother was abut 21 he decided he was going to “travel” the country for Wildlife removal oklahoma city. Now, keep in mind this was in the 80’s. He had no job, no savings and a car my dad bought him when he was 17. So when this genius came to my parents with his bright idea I fully expected them to tell him no way and get a job you dirty hippie! But in true super supportive fashion, pops said..Okay, here’s a few hundred bucks to get you started, go enjoy life and when you’re ready to be a grown up…come home. So, he packed up some stuff, picked up a buddy, and off they went.

I was like 8 so I didn’t understand any of this. I knew mom and dad worked so we could live. I was very concerned for my brother…I asked my dad…”How is he going to live dad? How is he going to have dinner? How is he going to shower and go potty if he doesn’t have a home?” The day he left, I cried allllll day. I thought for sure something bad was going to happen to him. Big brother sent us postcards from cool places, and called once a week or so just to check in. This lasted abut 7 months, which at 8 felt like forever and then one day…out of nowhere…there he was, in the living room when I woke up for school! I was ecstatic, I screamed with delight, jumped into his arms and cried…


Moral of the story…you dirty vegans dont have to work to enjoy life.

When there are sooo many restrictions on a diet it can be hard to find food that tastes good. Eating the same thing over and over can get really boring. I have found a couple recipes that are delicious and easy to make, while adhering to the strict restrictions on a vegan diet.

Here are a couple recipes I have found to help you mix it up.


Pesto Pasta

I am a HUGE fan of Pesto!! This recipe works for non vegans as well, all you need to do is add chicken!


  • 1 lb. spaghetti
  • 2 ears corn, shucked
  • 1 medium yellow squash, cut into 1/2″-thick slices
  • 1 medium zucchini, cut into 1/2″-thick slices
  • 1 small bell pepper, seeded and cut into sixths
  • 4 green onions, trimmed
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/2 c. store-bought refrigerated pesto
  • 1 pt. grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 c. packed fresh parsley, chopped


  1. Heat grill on medium-high. Cook spaghetti as label directs. Rinse, drain well and let cool completely.
  2. In large bowl, toss corn, squash, zucchini, bell pepper and onions with oil and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and black pepper until well coated. Grill corn, turning, 10 minutes or until charred in spots. Grill squash, zucchini and bell pepper 4 to 6 minutes or until tender and grill marks appear, turning once. Grill onions 2 minutes or until tender and slightly charred, turning occasionally.
  3. Into large bowl, from lemon, grate 1/2 teaspoon zest and squeeze 2 tablespoons juice. Whisk in pesto and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper.

Spring Minestrone

Soup is so easy and so delicious! Another recipe that can be used in a non vegan diet bu adding chicken!


  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1 medium leek, thinly sliced
  • 8 sprigs fresh thyme, tied together
  • 3 large red potatoes, chopped
  • 2 qt. lower-sodium vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1 bunch asparagus, sliced
  • 1 can (15 oz.) navy beans, rinsed and drained (optional)
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh dill


  1. In 8-quart saucepot, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil on medium. Add carrots, leek, fresh thyme, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook 8 minutes, stirring. Add red potatoes, chopped, and lower-sodium vegetable or chicken broth. Partially cover and heat to boiling on high; reduce heat to simmer. Cook 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  2. Add asparagus and simmer 3 minutes or until tender. Discard thyme. Stir in navy beans (optional), fresh dill, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper.
Test Kitchen Hack: When you’re slicing the asparagus, leave the stalks rubber banded together. Trim the ends and cut through the rest of the stalk with a few quick strokes to slice all of your asparagus in seconds.Nutritional information (per serving): About 330 cals, 7 g protein, 62 g carbs, 7 g fat (1 g sat), 7 g fiber, 1,030 mg sodium



Be careful with all those delicious smells wafting through your home. You may attract the neighbors or even some wild animals and find yourself having to call for Wildlife Removal!

What is a Vegan?

»Posted by on Jul 21, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

A vegan is a person who chooses to live a life that excludes cruelty and exploitation of animals.

In short, they do not eat anything that would “harm” an animal. So, unlike vegetarians who only abstain from eating meat, vegans do not eat any animal products i.e. cheese, milk, eggs, butter, even honey.

People choose to live a vegan lifestyle for a variety of reasons such as health or ethical.

Health benefits can include weight loss and there was a study that states it can reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer’s or dying from heart disease and cancer. There’s also studies that have shown on a vegan diet you can lower your body weight and mass, people will use this diet to lose weight.

Ethical reasons are usually people who are against animal cruelty. They do not want anything to do with consuming animal meat or products made from animals. They also avoid Raccon Removal, wearing animal products such as fur and leather.

Whatever the reason, being a Vegan has risen by more than 250% in the past 5 years with several celebrities jumping on the band wagon.
