"Can we solve world hunger and feed 9 billion people just by eating less meat? Could the earth sustain nine billion people living on a plant-based diet?" It is estimated that 805 million people suffer from starvation. Being that our natural resources are already diminishing, we need to give some serious thought as to how we can adequately feed our quickly growing population while protecting what natural environment we have left. The resources required to produce the energy required to grow and harvest crops, transport, feed, house, slaughter, and raise animals is astronomical. "We currently produce enough calories to feed 11 billion people worldwide" however, the majority of this food goes to feed livestock, not the hungry. By choosing to eat more plant-based foods you can massively contribute, saving precious water supplies and help ensure that vital crop resources are fed to people, rather than livestock. Just sayin....🤓 #eatfortheplanet
When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?" /"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?" /"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet. /Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.
With delicious #vegan lunch spreads like this at places like @lovinghutarlingtontx, why would we choose anything but compassion? ✌🏼🌿💕
Please S W I P E 👈🏼 to meet the reason behind my blog + everything I do with this platform. 🐮 #fortheanimals •
I went to my first slaughterhouse vigil today @frontiermeats with @dallasanimalsave, to bear witness and to be with the animals in their last moments before death. 🙏🏼 I’ve never taken photos in a situation like this before. With shaking hands + tears clouding my vision, I tried my best to capture what these beautiful beings were feeling—pain, fear, anxiety, helplessness. They were so afraid. It broke my heart. I have more photos & a lot to express about this experience but I'll try to keep this post as brief as possible--extended blog post with all the photos to come later. 💔
Not long after this photo was taken, these cows were slaughtered for meat. Brutally. Mercilessly. We cannot forget: this is happening everywhere, everyday. For #beef#hamburgers#steak --is the violence truly worth it?? •
We are better than this inhumane insanity. We can stop this. Please. #choosecompassion#chooselove#choosevegan •
With #HarryPotter ’s 20th anniversary this week, I’m trying to share a favorite quote each day. Here’s a relevant one:
"You care so much you feel as though you will bleed to death with the pain of it.” - Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Ch. 37
Deep down, I believe our hearts are the same. 💖
Everyone I know loves animals. No one in their right mind would ever agree with all the awful, fucked up shit that happens in factory farms + slaughterhouses. 💔 Please consider #MeatlessMondays at the very least, as a start—please remember these animals did not want to die for us. And if you need recipes/food inspiration, you already know, I’m ya girl! 🙋🏻 As always, DM me if you need any advice! 🌱 #govegan#eatlikeyougiveadamn
@jneen7049 has completely re-inspired me to share my cooking and recipes! @greensandgrains started me on my vegan journey and I'm so grateful for that so I really want to show ppl how delicious it can be! I really just want to show ppl also that food is medicine!
This was my all day meal plan ... first pic is my dinner creation (i feel like the real MVP) which is a taco style stuffed sweet potato filled with:
sautéed together and then added chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper
Topped with Monterey Jack @daiyafoods , tomatoes, green onions and jalapeño peppers
Picture two is the filling
Picture 3 my @beyondmeat burger aka crack! It's so good on Ezekiel bread
Picture 4: my go to breakfast plain old avocado toast
Two of the appetizers my mom and I got when we were up in Burlington, VT a few weeks ago. This is a vegetarian restaurant I found when I first transferred to UVM from the app Happy Cow. If you don't know it, I highly recommend getting it! I don't think it's free, but if you travel a lot or are new to veganism it's such a useful tool to help you find places to eat in your area that are vegetarian or have any vegan options etc. We got buffalo cauliflower and guacamole filled wontons with cashew cheese and black beans 🌶🥑
🏋 going to the gym is always one of the highlights of my day!
I go in the mornings so I feel energised for the rest of the day!
Fitness & nutrition is my biggest passion so I would love to study it so one day I can be a personal trainer/nutritionist!🏋🍌
Green is my favourite colour. I love anything green. Today I'm creating a green banana sabji recipe for our new Indian Vegan cookery book. Trying to use all the unusual yet common vegetables 🥒 in an extraordinary way. Hope it turns out good!
