The Debate Around Honey: Is It Wrong to Eat It?

During the last few years, the debate around vegans choosing not to eat honey has been controversial. There are strong arguments on both sides but by the end of the day, it seems like the balance is on the “do not eat honey” side. People who aren’t too immersed in the world of veganism, probably beginning with a few improvements in their diet, often confuse honey with a vegan-friendly food. At first sight, it seems like honey is a quite natural thing and we aren’t “killing” an animal in order to enjoy it. However, there is a lot more to understand regarding honey. One of the things we often ignore is the methods beekeepers use to have a high yield...

Countryside and Veganism: Are They Not Compatible?

Vegans in the Workplace: Companies Offering in Meals and Snacks

As an incentive for workers, many companies have an interesting offering in meals and snacks. This isn’t only an amenity but a significant productivity-booster strategy: workers who are well fed and have all the needed nutrients are happier and perform better. For example, we can now see many organizations, even small companies with more limited budgets, offering fruits to employees as mid-day snacks. Without question, this is a fantastic idea. There is also a more traditional option, which is more often found at bigger companies: a cafeteria where every worker can have his or her lunch, bringing their meals from home or purchasing it in-house. So far, we see no issues here. However, the challenges arise when it comes to...
