A Big Thank You to Vega Community

I am a forty something married male residing on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Life is good and I can honestly say that I’m healthy and happy, but the weight has slowly crept up on me to the point where I can now notice the impact it has.



I am not sedentary, in fact my wife and I are very active - mountain hiking, cycling, boating and adventure travelling on a regular basis. We also eat a healthy and balanced diet, albiet my portions are likely way too big and it is not a… Continue

My Vegan Journey June 12

After 12 days of switching high fibre fruits, veggies and grain etc for meat, fish, seafood (which I now refer to as flesh) I'm feeling quite confident that I have made a change that is going to stay with me for life. I've had fleeting moments that I wonder if I'm missing a good steak or particularly salmon sashimi but it passes very quickly and I feel very content with my new food choices. For one thing I'm never hungry, actually I'm almost always full and when I do get that hunger feeling it… Continue

You Asked: Is Vega Health Optimizer Raw?

Now here’s a question we get regular so it’s a natural fit for our “You Asked” column.

You’ve asked: “Is Vega raw?”

Fresh Fettucini Puttanesca (made with Vega Antioxidant EFA Oil)

Oh, my poor parents. I say this for many reasons, but in this case it is with respect to my impassioned culinary endeavors I pursued as a kid.



Growing up, each weekend the process was the same: first I would scour my collection of cookbooks and, without fail, choose the most complicated one I could possibly find to tackle. Next came the well-practiced whiny parental nag (pout inclusion dependent upon circumstance) to schlep me to a… Continue

My Vegan Journey June 6

It's now been four days since I made my promise not to eat anything that walks, crawls,flies or swims. I'm amazingly surprised at how easy it's been and how quickly I noticed the effects on my body. I keep wondering if this is going to be a passing phase or has something really clicked in my brain. I really really hope it's the later.



I have always been an in between meal grazer, the evening being the worst time for me. I have always been a little smug that I didn't gain weight from… Continue

June 4

Two days ago my daughter called and said "quick put up this website and watch this video." She's not one to be argued with! The website was www.earthlings.com.



I began to watch the trailer and by the time I got to the screaming elephant I was done, horrified, and couldn't watch anymore. As I was driving home I remember screaming out loud in the car, awful words and praying that there was a special hell for the people I saw doing unspeakable things to defenseless animals. Within a few… Continue

Vegan Challenge Finale: Let's See The Results

EVERYONE should try going vegan for at least 30 days.



This is the advice from the nine Sequel staffers who participated in our month-long vegan challenge during the month of May. No butter on their toast, eggs in their breakfast, or steak on the BBQ. Instead they spent the month chopping veggies, testing new recipes, reading labels, and opening their minds to… Continue

EASIEST Salad Ever! And Super Yummy!

Hi Everyone,



Thought I'd contribute one of my new salads. Its super duper easy and quick and really tasty.

My friend made this for me and I was hooked.

Here goes:

Then dressing:

*lemon juice- sorry we never measure- approx 1 tablespoon I think? you can adjust to taste

*olive oil- again, you can adjust this, not very much required, 1-2 tablespoons (next time I'm trying with Vega EFA oil!!)

*sprinkle… Continue
