Is it Possible to Eat Healthy in a Food Desert?

In this video, Jenné from Sweet Potato Soul gives her tips and advice on how to eat healthy and even vegan in a food desert. What is a food desert, though? Centers for Disease Control and Prevention describes them perfectly. On their website, they wrote: “Food deserts are areas that lack access to affordable fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat milk, and other foods that make up a full and healthy diet. Many Americans living in rural, minority, or low-income areas are subjected to food deserts and may be unable to access affordable, healthy foods, leaving their diets lacking essential nutrients.”

Even though Jenné doesn’t live in a food desert herself, she is still very educated about the topic. Her advice is unique and helpful to anyone who is struggling with feeding themselves and their family healthy and nutritious food.

Have Your Mind Blown with this Incredible Vegan Parody from Adele’s song, “Hello”

This Official Vegan Parady from the famous song “Hello” by Adele was created by the Light Twins and Treena Strong. These three people wrote the lyrics together, but the song and music video was performed by Treena Strong. Treena is wearing a faux fur in this video to show that you don’t need to kill animals for fashion. Music is an amazing way to spread the vegan message, and this music video was definitely successful in doing so! This was the first parody that the Light Twins have created. The full lyrics are written in the description box of their video on youtube, and the lyrics are so well-written and catchy. Here is an excerpt of the chorus:

* now I’m on the vegan side
* so I can save a thousand lives
* don’t be sorry for, everything we’ve done wrong
* it’s a journey, this path lead, to where we belong

The Light Twins created this song for all the animals out there, and for the dream of a vegan world.
