Agriculture drives deforestation in South America... 🌱
Livestock and their byproducts account for at least 32,000 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year, or 51% of all worldwide greenhouse gas emissions.
Agriculture is responsible for 80-90% of US water consumption. Throughout the world, humans dritnk 5.2 billion gallons of water and eat 21 billion pounds of food each day. Worldwide, cows drink 45 billion gallons of water and eat 135 billion pounds of food each day. Hence the cows consume 6-9 times more than humans. Also, did you know that 2,500 gallons of water are needed to produce 1 pound of beef.
Animal agriculture is responsible for up to 91% of Amazon destruction and 1-2 acres of rainforest are cleared every second. The leading causes of rainforest destruction are livestock and feedcrops. Animal agriculture is also the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution, and habitat destruction. Livestock operations on land have created more than 500 nitrogen flooded deadzones around the world in our oceans. For you to understand how inefficient animal agriculture is 1.5 acres can produce 37,000 pounds of plant-based food, 1.5 acres can produce 375 pounds of beef....
70 billion farmed animals are reared annually worldwide. No wonder we need to kill the rainforest grow crops fertilize and destroy our soil and oceans. More than 6 million animals are killed for food every hour.
A person who follows a vegan diet produces the equivalent of 50% less carbon dioxide, uses 1/11th oil, 1/13th water, and 1/18th land compared to a meat-lover for their food.

Crazy Friday night. 🐮🐮
This was on my story yesterday but I had to post it. 🐮
This was a young calf. She came over to me when I crouched beside her. You can see clearly she trusts me, enough to place her nose on me and let me touch her.
Is it okay that we don’t think of beef like this? Is it a bit weird? When you really think about it? The dissonance between the cute calf and the Big Mac. 🤔🤷🏼♂️ -
When you choose an alternative to meat you drive the demand elsewhere. Use that power. Help us drive it away from hate & cruelty and towards compassion, love & health. We can change the world. ☮️🌿🌍👁 You can still be fun and be vegan. In fact, it’s trendy af ✌🏻🤙🏻
It’s cool to care 😉

I used to be addicted to milk.. literally drinking pints of it daily. I went to hospital twice with suspected appendicitis.. turned out I was just drinking to much milk which was coursing me pain a discomfort. I also used to get really bad spots on my back & had bumps all over my arms which I used to exfoliate trying desperately to scrub them off.. to no avail.
After turning vegan my spots & the bumps on my arm magically cleared up.. interesting ... I'm convinced that it was down to drinking milk and all the crap that is in it. As the image says..'cows milk is for baby cows..' not to mention the blood & puss that is in .. Mmmm cows milk 🍼 🐮 ✋
Our November issue is now available for PRE-ORDER. It is all about marine life and why as vegans we choose to not take part in any activity that causes harm to the wonderful creatures of the sea.
We are so proud to have worked with so many fantastic vegans on this issue.
Pre-ordering is an awesome way to help support the magazine.

Sometimes it is so difficult to explain how I feel about animals, and their suffering, how I feel so deeply connected on a level that sometimes is very overwhelming.
I feel I was put here for a reason. I feel I have a purpose, a moral obligation to speak up on their behalf.
Someone recently said to me "you suffer from ehtics", I think she was right. Once you know certain information, you cannot just keep it to yourself, you have to act on it.
Becoming vegan for me 3 and a half years ago was a wake up call, like many others I regret not doing this sooner. My thoughts about animals and their emotions has become far more real. Sometimes I struggle to sleep, I lay in bed just thinking about the animals that are right now under the control of humans and suffering the unimaginable consequences of human greed. Their mental and physical pain and suffering is torture for some of is to live with, after watching the well known documentary earthlings how could I ever pay a human to treat an animal that way again?
Going vegan raised my consciousness and my level of compassion for every aspect of life. It is a blessing, but we still have a long way to go for true animal liberation. It starts with you, me and us. We all have the ability to say no to animal suffering.
Goodmorning guys! I couldn’t wait to share this delicious dish with you 🙊 It is a recipe I created my own, inspired by the famous ‘pasta puttanesca’. I actually made it with cooked beetroot to give it his pink/purple colour and lovely sweet taste. And I added some Ras El Hanout spice for the finishing touch 😋🌶
I think that about half of these wraps consisted of leafy greens! Lucky I love them; for reasons including and beyond their flavour. Leafy greens are full of so many essential vitamins and Minerals such as Vitamin A, C, K and E as well as Calcium (yes you don't need cows milk to be healthy). The consumption of leafy greens has been linked to reduced cognitive decline in adults and also helps the skin to renew and repair itself. Don't be fooled though, not all leafy greens are equal, spinach which was the main green in my wraps has poor bioavailability, meaning that our bodies cannot easily absorb the nutrients that it contains. However, not to worry, these veggies are still great for you as they're full of fibre which keeps the digestive system healthy 🥕🌿🍅🌽
Water. Such an important part of all life. It shoud be plentiful & clean. We shouldn't have to pay so much for something this planet provides to us all so beautifully & graciously. We should use it with care, respect & gratitude. Instead we live in a world where it's not plentiful, NOT clean, not cared for or respected. Its being held hostage, so to speak, and tainted with poisonous chemicals & waste. Not only do we pay a hefty price to be allotted this now, rare luxury, we are fined & often judged heavily if we water are gardens to much, or maybe rinse down our homes.... or cars, or allow the kids & animals to play in the sprinkles.....We have to pay for expensive fancy filtration systems to attempt to reduce any unwanted chemicals & waste, or for many, forced to buy bottled (which also has major con's). All the while pumping TRILLIONS of gallons of water into animal agriculture.....REALLY!.....I don't remember agreeing to this! Ooooh that's right, the "people in charge," our ever caring & concerned government. I just love when they approve exploiting OUR resources, to line THEIR pockets, with OUR money. I mean, cuz we NEED meat, dairy & eggs or we would all die, right? It's for our own good, right? We can't make decisions as a community, right? We need them....RIGHT!? I think NOT! People need to wake up & live responsibly, so we're not continually taken advantage of. We can BE THE CHANGE. I can think of a MILLION things I'd much rather do with OUR water then use it to feed, water & SLAUGHTER billions of animals, because, bacon tho...SMH... This is outrageous. Educate yourselves, spread awareness, GO VEGAN, LIVE VEGAN, BE VEGAN!✊ Swipe👉👉👉👉 Follow @truthordrought & @cowspiracy

Who says you can't enjoy meat-less fajitas!?
I wasn't sure what to cook for dinner, but my mom was making fajitas and I couldn't resist! So before she added the chicken, I stole some beautiful colored sauteed bell peppers and paired them with some brown rice. Honestly the perfect combination👌🏼
