3 years vegan (and counting!!!) does a body very good...I've accumulated 54 years in this body and spent almost 40 years at war with it (sad but true and true for most women)....after a major surgery almost 5 years ago my perspective completely shifted to one of complete gratitude and amazement at how resilient and awesome these bodies of ours really are...especially if we take care of them.
Going vegan was the best decision I ever made for my body and for my soul and also ..oh yeah ...for saving the animals and saving the planet, too...no big deal😜
My only regret is that I didn't wake up to this sooner 😩
But I'm here now 😍😍😍
and #veganlife is now the only life for me 💃🏻
because I truly feel better than I ever thought I would at this stage of my life ...I even finally like the way I look (and becoming vegan helped my perspective with this, too) and my soul feels peace knowing I am no longer supporting and ingesting the extreme suffering of too many sweet sentient beings...(cows are basically just big, goofy dogs!)
If you're curious/ considering to #govegan please watch any one of these amazing films that document exactly why you would want to choose that if you care about yourself, animals, and the planet...

Fall Semester: Day 37
What a joy it is to connect with such gentle creatures! This is Forrest, a calf at @sweetolivefarm sanctuary. He's still somewhat afraid of people, so for him to trust me enough to get this close is truly honoring. For anyone in the Athens area (or even just visiting on the weekend) you can come to the farm and see just how magical of a place it is (either yoga Saturday evening or volunteering Sunday afternoon).
SEE HOW DAIRY PRODUCTS COME FROM THE CRIMES OF FORCIBLE CONFINEMENT, RAPE & INFANTICIDE...as well as taking the life of the dairy slave, 20 years before their natural age of death at around 25...we must grow past the using of milk products past infancy and of another species...we are the only species that does this...please, sign and share below, so we can put pressure on the fact dairy is toxic for humans...and lethal for calves and cows, it is stolen from...the sooner we grow past the lies, the better for all concerned...DAIRY IS SCARIER THAN ANY HORROR MOVIE YOU WILL SEE, GO DAIRY FREE...thanks. - Animal Freedom Fighters ✊🏽🐾❤️
i love @wearezizzi😮 this is one of the best vegan desserts ever, and it's so affordable, i love it😭 the ice cream is coconut and chocolate, then the torte is chocolate with a date and nut base (i think lol), then some honeycomb and sugar sprinkled across - slight choking hazard but i survived😂😋 im moving to uni this weekend so i'm spending the rest of this week eating out with family before i go, even though i'm only moving about 40 minutes away😂 i'm excited to move, but i'm going to miss my boyfriend and dog so much😔 but, i have parking permit so i can drive home whenever i want😁 19/09/17
Dairy is truly scary. Not only ruins our health but the way dairy industry exploits and abuses #farmanimals is beyond. Check out our new blog post about "scary dairy" at zippyvegan.com 💚 And if you like our t-shirt, you can get it with 20% off 😊
Say no to dairy - it supports animal cruelty ,slavery and abuse-dairy is extremely bad for us because it's baby calf growth formula and humans are not baby cows - The purpose of cow’s milk is to turn a 65-pound calf into a 700-pound cow as rapidly as possible-Cow’s milk IS baby calf growth fluid-some of the side effects of consuming dairy for humans are;
Chronic inflammation,bad skin, bone fractures, osteoporosis, cancer, digestive problems & aging-please stop consuming dairy-stop drinking another species milk -these beautiful & innocent animals are being tortured to death so that you can drink their babies milk-stop supporting the horrific dairy industry- #dairyisscary#saynotodairy#dairyiscancer#dairyismurder#dairyisrape#dairyiscruel
Can we advocate for compassion and nonviolence when we ourselves are the perpetrators of violence and cruelty towards others? Can we demand equality and justice when we so arbitrarily choose those that are worthy of our mercy, our respect, our care and those that aren't? Can we look past the trivial differences and see the striking similarities between us?
What a wonderful world it will be when we will all start to truly live by our own values.
This is 'Live By Your Values'
Prints AND t-shirt coming soon! 💚
Super impressed with the little vegan section on #themoodychef 's menu. Ordered the falafal bowl which came with a fun avocado /citrus scoop and a tahini sauce. Did cost a slightly eye watering $20 but was worth it for a treat!

Dairy is scary 💔RP @choosecompassion
Got cruelty? Milk does 🚫🍼
Nearly 67% of calves in the US dairy industry are separated from their mother immediately after birth, while 97.4% are separated within 24 hours. These babies are deprived of the ability to nurse from their mother. Instead, the pus and secretions are forcefully extracted from the lactating cows to be pasteurized and processed for human consumption 🤢
Female calves will enter the same viscous cycle as their mother (a constant cycle of confinement, continual impregnation and trauma from being separated from their newborns), while male calves will be raised for beef or veal. Male calves entering the veal industry will be slaughtered within 3 to 20 short weeks of “life”. They are chained to 2-2.5-foot-wide crates to restrict movement and prevent normal bone and muscle development. They are deprived of social interaction 💔
The gestation period of a cow is approximately 9 months, like humans. They yearn to nurse and care for their babies once they give birth, like most humans. They chase after and cry for them upon forceful separation, just as most humans would do 😥
Dairy is the most barbaric industry. It deprives animals of their basic rights and parental instincts. It prevents calves from acquiring life sustaining nutrients and propels them into a life of perpetual exploitation, with slaughter as the end result. By purchasing and consuming dairy products, you are complicit in the exploitation of female cows and the slaughter of babies. There are so many wonderful vegan dairy alternatives. There is no reason or excuse for participating in the barbarism 👎🏼
Your addiction to dairy products does not warrant these horrific practices. Dairy products are grossly unsustainable, are unfit for human consumption and are acquired by extremely cruel means. Please live more selflessly and consider the victims of these industries. You cannot truly be a feminist, an environmentalist, a pro-lifer, peacekeeper or a humanitarian while contributing to this madness 🐄 #GoVegan#DairyIsScary#NotYourMomNotYourMilk#MothersAgainstDairy 🌿
