Wait, why am I vegan again?
November is National Vegan Month, and we’re pausing to remember WHY we went vegan in the first place. Eating a completely plant-based diet isn’t effortless. From having to check the menu before going out to eat, to those annoying people that think YOU’RE annoying cause you don’t eat no meat, being vegan is no easy feat. But, its SO WORTH IT!!!!! We believe that if you feel good, you look good- you work good and you act good (eloquence aside). Not concentrating on the environmental and ethical benefits, we’ve made a short list reminding us why we love being vegan. Get inspired!

WORKIN’ ON YOUR FITNESS?
A vegan lifestyle can help you get and stay in-shape, thanks to increased energy and faster recoveries. Our favorite fitness classes? Try AKT in Motion and Shadowbox for a great sweat (and make sure you look cool doing it, with some great workout gear).
THAT BODY THO!
Eating plants instead of dairy and meat means your eating less fat, particularly that yucky saturated fat which is MUY MUY bad for cholesterol. If your goal is to slim down, plants can help!
Sometimes staying at home seems like the only option when you wake up with a crater on your forehead. Dairy and meat can lead to acne and eczema, so be “proactive” by eliminating these food groups. Need immediate help? Try our Pineapple Facemask for some tropical rejuvenation, and get glowing!
