Most people dont make a point of talking about feminine products. But it is really time we stopped making it so taboo. Feminine products are part of our everyday lives as women and some of them have actually made it a lot easier to be a woman.

Whenever anyone asks me for advice on going vegan, or even just to start eating healthier, this is what I tell them: Buy a few vegan cookbooks and try at least one new recipe every week.

Even if you aren’t following a raw foods diet, it is still nice to have a few raw food recipe books on hand.

These are some of the best raw food recipe books you will find and include recipes for beginners and advanced raw foodists alike.

Part of the reason veganism costs more is because you suddenly start caring about your health more. It is hard not to care once you find out about all of the creepy chemical ingredients lurking in your food (and vegans are constantly reading food labels, so it is hard not to see these ingredients).
