Go Vegan. Thank you!

I'm Erin, but everyone calls me Red and that's just fine with me.

I'm a certified VLCE and Vegan Nutrition Specialist, public speaker, writer, consultant, kitchen wrangler, problem solver, rabble-rouser, jet-setter, and host of the popular vegan podcast Red Radio. I also co-founded The Seed in 2012, and continue to organize events across North America.

By night I'm a muay Thai practitioner, runner, Bikram Yogini, and tattoo enthusiast. Brooklyn is home, but I hail from Toronto, Canada, and I'm currently on the road.

Try to keep up.

I work at Subway and I always ask customers that get veggie subs if they’re vegetarians and some of them are but every now and then i get the occasional vegan (I’m in west Texas so we’re very few). Just so you know, the wheat bread at Subway in the US is NOT vegan. It has HONEY. None of the breads at Subway are vegan. Not even the flatbread. Just wanted to clear that up.

I thought the Italian white bread was vegan?  If not no big. I mostly get the salad veggie bowls anyways if I go to Subway.

I p sure the italian is vegan but like you i eat mainly the salads.

Duly noted! I hate subway now that I’m vegan because their veggies are low quality, but you never know.

None of their bread is Vegan, even the Italian.  It is all enriched with animal-derived Vitamin D3.

Okay guys. I messed up and passed on some incorrect information with that first post. Im sorry. Here’s a thing though^^^^^^And here’s a link to the ingredients list

Basically, I realized I was living in that awful stage of life between twenty-six and thirty-seven known as stupidity. It’s when you don’t know anything, not even as much as you did when you were younger, and you don’t even have a philosophy about all the things you don’t know, the way you did when you were twenty or would again when you were thirty-eight.
- Lorrie Moore, Anagrams (via slaughterhouse90210)
It’s not easy breaking out of your comfort zone. People will tear you down, tell you that you should not have tried in the first place. But let me tell you something — there’s not much difference between a stadium full of cheering fans and an angry crowd screaming abuse at you; they’re both just making a bunch of noise. How you take it is up to you. If you convince yourself they’re cheering for you, one
day they will.
Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go. Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else. You have to make your wellbeing a priority. Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful — you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself.

I present the most badass gifset on Tumblr.

Legitimately turned on by this

This is the best thing.

Oh my god

I don’t even know this fandom and this is cool.

Reason #999 why the cartoon will always be ONE MILLION PERCENT better than that travesty of a movie. They did so much research and put so much detail in you don’t even notice.

Bonus trivia: Toph got a unique martial arts style to match her distinct version of Earthbending (Southern Praying Mantis style, I think) which the creators found out later was (according to legend) invented by a blind woman. Totally a coincidence, but still so fucking cool.

(If you don’t watch the show, Toph is both blind from birth and the best damn Earthbender in the world. Also, GO WATCH THE SHOW.)
