Since the deaths of 20 students and 6 teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary school, everyone we know has been arguing over which arguments to have, and when to have them. But one argument that’s emerged since Monday is so irrelevant, it’s shocking: The fact that the shooter, Adam Lanza, was vegan. Because we write about diet and veganism on Blisstree, it seems like a story we should weigh in on. But frankly, it’s only worth bringing up to say that it’s offensive. More
Wondering how you can bring the spice back into your sex life? Perhaps it’s not about adding anything, so much as taking away. More
What’s great about Thanksgiving? Lots of things, but pumpkin is one of them. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin casserole and pumpkin desserts. All of which taste great, but are not always easy to make if you’re going vegan. So we did a little digging and found five pumpkin-inspired desserts for Thanksgiving that are all sans dairy. Even if you’re not vegan, you have to admit, these look pretty awesome. Take a look: More
As much as we like to tout vegetarian and vegan diets (or at least, cutting out meat and dairy) on this site, the fact is that veganism just might not work for everyone. For example, it apparently doesn’t work for Justin Bieber, who tried it out at the behest of his mentor, Usher. And, apparently, it turned him into kind of a pill. More
Director Marisa Miller Wolfson openly admits that she used to make fun of her vegetarians friends. But, like most vegetarians and vegans, she had a come-to-tofu moment when she watched a small, independent film about the meat industry. So she wrote, edited, and directed her own.

While food trucks are a definite step up from traditional sidewalk carts (think: boiled peanuts and hot dogs), the latest and greatest food trucks are offering a healthier variety–and quite possibly changing the way America eats.
Houston Texans running back Arian Foster recently became a vegan, a fact broadcasted to millions of NFL viewers on Saturday when Arian’s sample meal plan showed up on the screen during a game. Arian’s diet of veggies and quinoa has been controversial in the offseason, but I hope his new eating habits will open people’s minds to the fact that meat isn’t always necessary to be a great athlete.
First the good news: You know those brown-spotted, rotting bananas on your kitchen counter that you swear you’ll make banana bread with? You may not have to deal with them anymore. Now the bad news: Those very same bananas may not be the vegan fruit you thought they were once you find out what’s on them. More
It has been ten years since I last ate red meat, and seven years since I stopped eating all meat. But there are still times when I wrestle with the decision. Sometimes, in my busy, not-good-at-cooking, perpetually-eating-in-restaurants life, I ask … More
