Disney World's Magic Kingdom is so much more than attractions, rides, entertainment, activities, shopping, and food, -- it's about believing in the power of dreams and "taking the dream with you wherever you may go."

As An Animal Lover, I Don't Accept The Vegan Argument Against Milk

Cows are loving, motherly animals and hold a special place in Indian culture. When loved and treated well, they will happily give their excess milk to humans after their calves have had their fill. Dairy products are commonly used in Hindu rituals. I just could not get behind the vegan argument that drinking milk was fundamentally wrong.

Don't feel badly. Especially if you're a new vegan, you may feel terrible for "imposing" on your host, or intimidated by the looks you're being given by others. Stay firm with your beliefs and don't let anyone make you question the legitimacy of your position.

Don't Blame Veganism For Your Eating Disorder

Pamela Tourigny

Veganism isn't about deprivation or being extreme. It's about leaving animals off our plates. I see too many people -- vegans and not -- who have become obsessed with eating their version of a perfectly clean diet. They eliminate soy, gluten, corn, carbs and so on for no clear reason -- often needlessly.

You Don't Understand Vegetarianism

Here's a crash course: vegans do not consume any animal products. Vegetarians consume animal products that can be obtained without killing an animal (such as eggs and dairy), but do not eat any meat or fish. Pescetarians eat a diet almost identical to those of vegetarians, with the addition of seafood.

Being a vegetarian is actually pretty easy. The food is better, healthier and provides motivation to look closer at the impacts of diet and health. What isn't easy is being a vegetarian while also enjoying a lot of "dude stuff."

Cecil's death has caused an Internet uproar. It's almost all that I am seeing in my newsfeed. Most of it is unadulterated outrage directed at the perpetrator. The world (or North Americans, at least) are experiencing collective grief, horror, devastation and anger in a way that I haven't seen for some time.

My son Noah and I live a vegan lifestyle. That's different from following a vegan diet -- although both are great! In fact, whatever you do that helps the environment, animals, humans or the earth is pretty awesome. For us, veganism extends past the plant-based food on our plate.

It is easy in the summer time for me to grab a bag of chips instead of a healthy snack. I want to stay on track this summer, not just for the way I look but most importantly for how I will feel. I need more energy to fuel all the hikes, cycling and fun I want to have this summer!

A number of people have commented to me over my years of involvement within the vegan community that they are often overwhelmed by all of the suffering that animals endure, leaving them unsure how to advocate for them effectively. It's a feeling of helplessness to which many can surely relate.

We live in a world that's built on using animals for every purpose imaginable, and even armed with information and conviction, people can find it challenging to live in alignment with their beliefs.

March 5 was a good day for elephants. Not the elephants roaming free in their natural habitat -- for those elephants every day is a good day.
