my vegan diet Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Advice

For the longest time, I've hesitated to blog. I know that I have a "blog" but I sort of look at Happy Herbivore like a modern day recipe card index that's shared among family and friends-- I don't really see it as a diary or journal the way most blogs are chronicled...

So, that Marie Claire article... Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Advice

I was away all weekend (and yesterday) in D.C., celebrating my best friend’s birthday. Admittedly, I get nervous anytime I’m “unplugged.” I’m convinced something is going to happen in my absence — and often it does.

An Apology Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Advice

Well this certainly has turned into a week of out-of-character posts!

Fans, Friends & Readers,

I'd like to formally apologize for the offensive ads on Happy Herbivore lately. For as long as I've been with Blogher, I've selected preferences and settings that signify to them that I do NOT want ads that publicize meat, dairy, fur, etc.

Despite my clear "vegan-only" preferences, Blogher chooses not to adhere to them. First it was the god-awful KFC "Buckets For ...
