I buy, I cook, I race.
I buy Information overload? No way! I love reading blogs, Twitter and Facebook to learn how to eat vegan in a smart, healthy way.

I hope I can help others eager to learn as much as possible about eating healthy and vegan, being healthy, vegan and athletic and I’ll toss in some occasional rants on […]

There was a celebration held or an auspicious occasion and my colleagues and I were guests of honor. Early in the day an elder from the community brought a goat to the site of the celebration—a truth demonstration of generosity. The goat was presented and subsequently killed and boiled. That evening, we were offered the goat for dinner. To refuse it would have been an affront (or so I […]
