Tim, the “Vegan Barbarian”, Titus is an ileostomate from Chatham, Ontario. He found the VeganOstomy website after going vegan, and he connected with me through my YouTube channel.
Deciding to go vegan and avoid animal products is life-changing. It’s not always easy to change the things you’ve done all your life, but it can be done and it will be one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself and those around you.
It’s World Vegan Day 2015, and there’s no better time to go vegan than now! With thousands of books, websites, personal blogs and YouTube channels dedicated to this lifestyle, you’ll feel right at home! But things weren’t always this easy, and the lack of a mature internet made living as a vegan a complicated affair!
These are some of the things I wish I knew before going vegan. Oh, and Happy World Vegan Day! =)
I was finally able to make it to the Toronto Vegetarian Food Festival this year. It’s been running for the past 30 years, so I’m a bit embarrassed to say that I haven’t been there before. I can partially blame Crohn’s disease for at least five of those year though, and I have my ostomy to thank for being able to make it this year.
