Venture Capitalists Taking Bigger Bets on Food Startups: Silicon Valley venture capital firms seem to think that the next big thing in technological entrepreneurism may center around food. Firms such as Khosla Ventures, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, and True Ventures (among others) are…
The spiritual journey is individual, highly personal. It can’t be organized or regulated. It isn’t true that everyone should follow one path. Listen to your own truth. — Ram Dass (via spiritual-shanti)

How to Eat Vegan On A Budget
- Eat vegetables and fruits that are in season (they’ll be cheaper)
- Buy from your local farmer’s market (again, cheaper!)
- Buy in bulk (grains, legumes, pasta etc.)
- Be creative (sometimes you can make something amazing out of nothing. I’ve done this way too many times to count.)
- Stop buying unnecessary junk food (and make it yourself! Things like chips, crackers, granola bars, etc. It’ll be healthier as well!)
- Take a break from processed meat alternatives and stick to whole foods.
- Stop eating out! (this is a given for any person on a budget)
- Make your own veggie burgers!
- Cook in bulk
- Make your own vegetable broth (this will save you so much money plus it will taste WAY better than the store bought ones.)
- Buy frozen vegetables and fruits (not as good as fresh but still nutritious!)
- Try making big one pot meals (soups, stews etc.)
- Stop buying canned legumes! (they’re way cheaper dried!)
- Check Amazon (they have good deals on bulk items and spices.)
- Start your own garden (even a tiny one can makes things cheaper.)
- Make your own non-dairy milk (all you need is a blender! Thanks, bloodandcrust for the tip!)
I’m sure I’m not the only one who has been asked this questions TONS of times so I put together a quick little list about things that I do to eat vegan on a budget. If you have any tips or tricks, message me and I’ll add them to the list! I’ll post a link to this post on my sidebar for easy access along with the VEGAN 101 post.
Here are more extensive list on: What’s in season?

Nothing you do will change you, for you need no change. You may change your mind or your body, but it is always something external to you that has changed, not yourself. Why bother at all to change? Realize once for all that neither your body nor your mind, nor even your consciousness is yourself and stand alone in your true nature beyond consciousness and unconsciousness. No effort can take you there, only the clarity of understanding. — Nisargadatta Maharaj (via tobiji)
You lost all interest in this world. You were disappointed and discouraged, and lost interest in everything. So you abandoned your physical body. You went to a world apart and you’re living a different kind of life there. In a world that’s inside you. — 1Q84, Haruki Murakami (via moon-glint)

Now there is a final reason I think that Jesus says, “Love your enemies.” It is this: that love has within it a redemptive power. And there is a power there that eventually transforms individuals. Just keep being friendly to that person. Just keep loving them, and they can’t stand it too long. Oh, they react in many ways in the beginning. They react with guilt feelings, and sometimes they’ll hate you a little more at that transition period, but just keep loving them. And by the power of your love they will break down under the load. That’s love, you see. It is redemptive, and this is why Jesus says love. There’s something about love that builds up and is creative. There is something about hate that tears down and is destructive. So love your enemies. — A Knock at Midnight: Inspiration from the Great Sermons of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. (via kirbi—mrqz)
