Gemüsings—Vegan Musings

Musings on food, friends, furries and family

About Me

Hi! I’m Amanda. I’m long-time vegan/vegetarian living in Cambridge, MA in the United States. I recently moved Gemüsings over from Blogger to WordPress and am loving it! Gemüse is the German word for vegetable and I loved the wordplay of adding “musings” to it.

I’ve been vegetarian since 1993..it was an organic kind of transition. I just stopped eating meat one year in college because it just didn’t suit me. In 2004, it took a months long struggle with insomnia to push me to veganism. I followed (and still do) the McDougall diet from Dr. John McDougall and my insomnia and other health problems (allergies, low immune system, PCOS) cleared up completely. I’ve never felt better in my life and I credit that to a vegan diet.

I’m a work-at-home mom and marketing consultant. I specialize in blogger outreach and social media campaigns. I have created numerous successful product review campaigns for health and wellness products and would love to talk to anyone who needs help with outreach to vegan, celiac/gluten-free, beauty, or mommy bloggers. I also consult to software and technology companies for various marketing projects.

In my free time, I’m active in the non-web vegan world too. Check out the vegan nutrition guide that I produced with the Boston Vegan Association <a href=”http://www.scribd.com/doc/43742106/Nutrition-Pamphlet. I have written for VegNews as well as many business publications. I am currently working on a book about squirrels as well as conducting a year long experiment in limiting my consumerism (which will probably become fodder for another book in the future!).

I love talking/emailing/chatting with other vegans no matter where they are geographically or philosophy wise. I also am always happy to chat with non-vegans about why I do what I do. The more discussion the better I say! So please feel free to contact me at amandatrombley AT gmail.com or leave a post here and I’ll be sure to reply.

    Really enjoy your blog Amanda. Wanted to tell you I appreciated your kind words about my animals paintings in one of your fall entries. Being a long time vegetarian I do hope bringing the beauty and individuality of the animals to star in my paintings will help them. Thanks, Caryn
