2018 has been quite the year, let me tell you. One major breakup, a string of ill-advised Tinder dates, and a run in with someone who was all wrong for me but I fought for tooth and nail anyway. It sounds like the plot to a bad rom-com where the female protagonist lear...

Since 2014, Report Buyer has found that veganism has grown 600% in the United States alone (from 1% to 6%). As its numbers increase, so does its social recognition. An initial draw to veganism tends to be the health benefits that it may provide, which include, lowering...
