FEATURE: BLACK VEGANS ROCK - Family man Phillip talks losing a live-saving 160lbs

Before I became vegan, I weighed 350 pounds and I didn't really exercise or take my health all that seriously. I played video games and slept a lot. I'm not trying to say that all people who are 350 pounds have my experience or are 'lazy' (especially because of the body positive movement that's happening today), I am only speaking from my own standpoint. I felt like I was being a bad role model to my children because I was teaching them that exercise and eating a nutritious…

OP-ED: An Open Letter to J. Cole: Your Music Helped Me Recover From My Depression

My name is Jasmin. It just so happens 2014 was one of the worst years of my life. I had already been dealing with major depressive disorder for almost several years at the time. However 2014 I had it extremely bad. Mind numbing bad. Thank God I eventually found my way out of that deep dark hole but it took me awhile. Depression is not an easy illness to deal with. I didn't even know who I was anymore for a while. I couldn't sleep at night. I couldn't concentrate on…

FEATURE: Black Vegans Rock - Jamila Anahata of The Soulful Veganista talks unlearning nutrition misconceptions

My name is Jamila Anahata and I have been a super happy vegan for three years now! It all started when I went on a corny health kick, one that resembled the ever-so-popular starvation diets where my staples were “lean proteins” and “healthy” TV dinners. Although I was losing the weight and seeing somewhat of a difference in my body, I just knew that something was not right about my diet. I always had constipation, acne, weight fluctuation, borderline insomnia, poor…

FEATURE: Black Vegans Rock: meat/dairy-free newcomer Jasmine celebrates first year of ethical food consumption

My name is Jasmine and I've been vegan now for one year! My journey didn't happen the way I expected it too. I honestly didn't know my journey would even lead to veganism. I started out as a pescatarian in October of 2014, mainly for my health. My husband was worried about our blood pressure since it runs in both of our families. So, I decided to take initiative and get on the right track. I was eating meat once a month and then in November of that year, the day that I had…
