NZVP Ep.133 - Exposes and loyalty to them. Also, a tribute to Bubbles the mouse. R.I.P little one.

Listen HERE

This is about "Exposés"  I couldn't put the accent on the "e" in the title because feedburner rejects it for some reason and the podcast won't work.

Here is the story I was talking about re: my experience with a PeTA video: http://www.nzvegan.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/My-Vegan-Story.pdf 

Dedicated to dear sweet Bubbles and to Sophie and Michael, who are the most big hearted, generous, kind, and unconditionally loving and amazing people I have ever had the privilege of meeting in my life.

Thank you for listening

NZVP Ep.128 - baking soda rocks and trolling the trolls

Listen HERE

Here is the link to the Vegan For Life podcast I mentioned from Nícolas Noriê  http://plainsfm.org.nz/programme/vegan-life/

Here is a link to the article I was trolled and trolling on (I wasn't really intended to troll per se and I don't think what I was doing classifies as trolling but it felt like it in the end especially the way I started behaving) http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/a_haven_from_the_animal_holocaust_20150802

Here is a basic recipe I found for baking soda and coconut oil toothpaste - I use an old baby food jar (I used to give the cats some pureed baby food squash until I just started making it myself) but any jar will do:

  • Fill your jar with a heaping scoop of soft (but not melted) coconut oil (about 1/4 to 1/2 way full if you’re using a tiny jar). If your oil is super solid, you can place place the jar in a bowl of hot water for a few minutes.
  • Sprinkle the baking soda on top (about 1/2 the amount of coconut oil) and stir well.
  • Add some peppermint oil to taste (Optional)
  • Test it. It should pretty grainy, paste like (creamy, not hard), and leave your mouth feeling super fresh. If you can’t feel the grain, add some more baking soda. If it feels crumbly, you need more coconut oil. If you don’t feel the freshness, add some more peppermint oil.

Here is the mouthwash again:
8 drops peppermint oil
8 drops tea tree oil
250 mils of water

Hey so regarding the baking soda and vinegar shampoo - there are apparently a lot of articles out there saying it damages hair but I have used it for about 3 months and i am loving it more every day but whatever.  There are lots of homemade vegan shampoos online for you to check out.  I won't post links there are too many.

Thanks for listening!
