Best of 2013: My Meatless Life Sugar, Sugar, Sugar


Hi, my name is Ayinde and I’m addicted to sugar. Hi Ayinde!
Last week I talked about how much I ate at DC Vegfest and how it was mostly sugar. Well, I have a confession: it’s not just something that I do on special trips. I do it all the time! I’m riding the sticky bowl, I’m on the cane train. I love sugar dammit! Honestly, I think I’m fine. I’m just here because “some people” think eating three vegan doughnuts in one sitting is considered a “red flag.” Continue reading

I posted on my FB page a few weeks back about how you can lead a horse (read friend) to water (telling them what they can/should do to better their situation) and the horse will refuse to drink… I think you get the analogy by now. I have these people pop up in my life a lot I’m not sure why; I’m a pretty empathic person so I guess I try to get friendly with too many folks because their problems will become mine, albeit temporarily some with permanent residue Continue reading

My Meatless Life: The Show. No really…


I’m very nervous today. All of a sudden the fact that I have dusted off my old scribe and penned a new one hour solo multimedia- performance piece with dinner served named for this very column is scaring the shit out of me.

My Meatless Life: #RoadChef

Sunset infinity pool

After any big event or “thing” in life (or at least in mine), I feel this tremendous let down. The Urban Dictionary calls this “post-party depression”. Man all day I was lying around thinking ‘I want my mommy’… I had post-party depression. While it was not a party, going from country to country, experiencing torrential rain one day and sunshine the next and going from seeing-your-breath cold to mid 90’s in one day, was definitely a sensory soiree. Add checking into three different hotels in one week and my brain was sweating like an extra in a Shaun T infomercial. Tilt, tuck and tighten. Continue reading
