Chickpea Magazine is a zine-like vegan quarterly filled with gorgeous photography and inspired recipes and DIY projects. And when I say it's gorgeous and zine-like, I mean it. It's free of advertisements and absolutely beautiful from cover to cover. Seriously, look:
I'm honored to have my words on being vegan and dating omnivores in the Fall 2013 issue of Chickpea. And, though it was tempting, I don't argue that as a vegan you should avoid omnis when you play the field.
How could I? Dating someone different than me has been an incredible learning experience. Listening to someone who has a unique perspective regarding the topics for which I
hold staunch views has been, at times, a practice in patience and diplomacy, and more often, of indispensable value. It's been an ongoing opportunity to think deeper and outside of my own paradigm of "common sense." I've grown.
If you'd like to read more of what I have to say on the topic, or if you're interested in supporting Chickpea Magazine, you can purchase the current issue here. Chickpea distributes both digital and print copies. It's important to note that the digital version does have extra content, saves trees, and arrives instantly! You can also find an almost complete preview of the issue, and my feature, at ISSUU.
Thanks for checking it out and for your support! Happy dating!
