Nina’s Vegan Choices
1. Menstrual Cup
Switching from disposable tampons to a cup was literally lifechanging. It’s incredible how much waste we generate otherwise when on our periods and it’s a bummer that I have only discovered the cup for myself a bit more than a year ago. It’s also save and easy to use and you even tend to forget that you’re on your period at all, as 1 or 2 changes a day are enough.
2. Game Changers
Probably I’m not the only one recommending this movie (that’s a good sign though!) but for anyone still having doubts on whether to go vegan, this is a must-watch. It bashes many clichés vegans still have to face and shows that a vegan diet can help you go strong up to old age.
Myself, I never was a big fan of cheese before going vegan but it seems like giving up cheese is for many people the hardest part of going vegan. Therefore, I have two recommendations in stock that sweep away any remaining doubts. For one, the Greek White Block from Violife is literally AMAZING. It’s a vegan Feta alternative and makes for great Greek salads, providing for delicious, healthy and quick vegan meals. Another one I can recommend is the cheese by New Roots, which is actually a Swiss start-up. Their vegan camembert is out-of-this-world and I’ve heard people saying that they wouldn’t have known that it’s vegan if not told before.
This is such a great initiative. It’s an online platform that allows you to plant real-life trees for yourself or as a gift and enables you to track it’s process. It’s a great way to compensate your CO2 footprint and help reforestation around the world, for a world that will be still habitable in a few centuries from now.
As a coffee lover and enthusiast I have tried quite a few different plant-based milks on the market. Not only giving many of them a taste test but also researching about the best alternatives impact wise. Ultimately, I’m super happy that my favourite milk, oat milk, also has the best CO2 footprint. I think the one milkbrand that is best suitable for particularly transitioning vegans is Oatly as it’s rich and creamy and tastes delicious.
About Nina Botzen
My name is Nina and I’m a vegan blogger from Switzerland. I love animals and am a part-time dog mom of Molly, a former street dog from Italy, who lives at my parent’s house. I’ve always had a profound love for animals but for years before going vegan I was disconnected to my food and the products I owned. My love for all living beings, paired with my care for the environment and myself led me to the best decision I’ve made so far: To start my plant-based journey.
