[box style=”none”]Suzie Q Hemp Food

Name: Karmiin Germane aka @suzieqhempseed

Self-proclaimed bio: I’m a mother, a lover, a vegan, an artist and a “foodie”–an organic one at that… oh– and there is this seed I like to incorporate into everything. Yeap– hemp seeds.

You should know that: I live with my partner, two kids and a bunch of dogs on the beautiful Northern California coast. When I’m not blogging and bird watching (from the window by my desk) you can find me frequenting a variety health food stores, festivals, farmers markets & art walks. I enjoy belly laughing, long walks on the beach, green juice, my Vitamix, Salad Master cookwear & To-goware bamboo utensils.

Joy Valencia

Name: Joy Valencia aka @VeganMusic and @joyvalencia

Self-proclaimed bio: Indie PsychPop Singer/Songwriter & Producer – Sep Artist of the Month on Stereofame.. makin music my damn self!

You should know that: “The main reason I’m vegan is that I don’t want to contribute to the culture of suffering. I strongly urge anyone who is curious to look up videos and see how these animals live and die.  On a personal note, after becoming vegan, I feel healthy, lighter, and I crave nutritious food. I think about food as fuel that gives me energy. And I feel good knowing that I’m not putting the energy of suffering animals into my body.”
