    It's easy being vegan! Healthy, sustainable and compassionate living. More than food.

    Metal heart with keys and "keyhole" - Something you could do with all your keys. I imagine you could use the chicken wire.

    At Home in Stone At Home in Stone Prev 3/15 Next At Home in Stone Many Craftsman-style houses, such as the one seen here, have stone foundations, porch posts, and conspicuous chimneys. The contrasting yellow-and-white color combination brightens the exterior of this charming bungalow.

    Violet - does not require the eye to focus, therefore objects and walls seem farther away. Great for making a room seem larger. Very subduing color. Try using it with its opposite color, yellow, for an eye-catching combination.

    The Amazon Rainforest are considered the lungs of the Earth.

    As many of you know, I have taken a fundraising challenge this year for a cause that I care deeply about. The Seva Amazon Challenge is about helping people and the planet. I know from experience that even a little bit can go a long way! These funds will help to construct a medical facility and train local healthcare workers as well as install water purification systems in rural communities of the Amazon that have been directly affected by oil contamination.

    Yep, that's a monkey hiding out in this little boy's hair! With the pending sale of 3 million acres of pristine rainforest to China for oil drilling, both people and animals in the Ecuadorian Amazon are fighting for their land and for their lives. Funds raised through this year's Global Seva Challenge will help us to protect parts of the rainforest from illegal logging, mining and oil exploration, and provide micro-loans, vocational training and healthcare to local people.

    Please donate to support environmental justice in Ecuador.

    Buy cruelty-free products that weren't tested on animals and are free of animal products.

    I eat a lot of salads but not because they are vegan. I eat them because they are healthy!
