The Deadliest Mistake Vegans Make

No matter what your reason for going vegan or vegetarian, it’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that just because you’re almost or entirely plant-based; it must mean you’re eating super-healthy.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major effect on our lives. Many of us are facing challenges that are stressful, overwhelming, and cause strong emotions.

The Eating Disorder of a Famous Pop Star

The other night, I was watching a documentary of a singer from the 1990s, whose music I know well and like.

  • Why I Don’t Colon Cleanse or Eat Exclusively Organic

Why I Don’t Colon Cleanse or Eat Exclusively Organic

It’s not unusual for me to receive questions like:

Do you recommend any homemade toothpaste recipes? Or

It is very difficult to find organic food in South Africa; do I have to eat 100% organic?

What do you think of activated coconut carbon/ charcoal as a water filter?

  • I'd Rather Die than Become Vegan

I’d Rather Die than Become Vegan

All too often, people fail to act in their own long-term interest, favouring present pleasure and using illogical statements to justify their decisions.

For instance, I’ve had people tell me they admire how I eat, but they say: “Ariel, I’d rather shave a decade off my lifespan and keep eating my meat.”
