Sick of the excuse: "Look how bad we treat other humans" or "Why do you care more about animals than humans?" Well we don’t systematically test on, breed, raise and violently kill billions of human babies for profit and taste. Most modern societies do not regard human beings as chattel property, while animals continue to be used as commodities, without any consideration for their suffering. But even if humans were used and abused on the scale and level of other animals, the fact that we inflict suffering on our own species is in no way a justification to inflict suffering on other species. Ironically, those who rationalise animal suffering in this way are paying desensitised farm workers to do what they would never do to humans or other animals.

#tbt to my afternoon with Paolo. At ~2,000 lbs, he is the epitome of a gentle giant. Paolo was destined to become someone’s veal or hamburger, but through a scary turn of events, he's now living it up at @farmsanctuary . He was born to a mother in the dairy industry, which means he was immediately taken away from her and not allowed to nurse. Most likely sold at auction, like a “thing” (instead of the kind soul he is), Paulo wound up at a small farm in Southern California. He lacked a secure pen and became prey to the coyotes in the surrounding hills. He was attacked one night and left with a horrible side wound, which the farmer then duct taped instead of getting him the proper care. Luckily, a kind-hearted neighbor reported this to animal control and Paolo was finally given proper medical care and a life of freedom at Farm Sanctuary. Paolo is a bit shy (especially when compared to his best buddy, Bruno), but I was lucky enough to spend sometime with this soulful guy. To read more about Paolo, copy the link below.

The world would be such a better place if all humans had the ability to love unconditionally like animals~ and humans loved ALL animals unconditionally~ .
After watching Melanie Joy's Tedx video on her theory of Carnism (her presentation is marvelous)~ I had the realization I was a hypocrite for consuming meat and dairy. I claimed to be an animal lover but consumed animals and attended zoos. I claimed to be a feminist but funded the dairy industry that repeatedly rapes female cows to the point of absolute exhaustion. I used to be so disconnected from the reality of eating meat and consuming dairy. I would never watch factory farmed videos because I didn't want to feel guilty and didn't want to face the painful reality. I'm so glad I finally woke up, did some research, watched a couple documentaries and decided to not look the other way. 🐶🐱🐷🐮🐤🐄🐾 #friendsnotfood
Nah they don't have a soul, they don't deserve to experience life as a free Being like you (👀) They're not intelligent. You have every right to have someone enslave them, torture them, and then brutally murder them and their children. You do. I know your bacon and pork chops are so important to you that kindness and compassion cannot penetrate your thick skull of arrogance, your blissful ignorance. I know your so far lost you think extinguishing the light and energy of life is your right. See I'm not being mean to you right now, I'm not insulting you either... that feeling you have right now, the anger, frustration, annoyance at my words... that's not directed at me. That's your soul, your consciousness telling you I'm right. So knock off the bullshit. Stop eating my children. Keep up the bullshit. You're all going to lose your world if you don't. - Sincerely, The Universe or God if you prefer.

Repost @_vegansoftheworld. Thanks for wanting to share my story.
One of my main and personal goals is to fully share my passion towards adopting a plant based and vegan lifestyle. To think it all started with a friend talking to me about the benefits of going plant based and being vegan which like many people think including me at the time, sounds too good to be true.
I'm glad I made the connection right there and then as I decided to educate myself and do my research. Seeing the documentary Earthlings, is what really got me the last push to just do it and go vegan cold turkey the day after Thanksgiving a few years back -out of all days.
As the plant based revolution and vegan awareness continues to grow, it's up to us to keep spreading the message loud and proud and educate others so they have a chance to improve their overall well being, health and state of mind and in return save mother earth and alleviate animal cruelty and suffering.
I'm definitely committed to being an advocate and a voice to the vegan movement. I know that if I can help more people make the connection and embrace their compassion, they too can unleash the plant based warrior within and rise up. I'm 24hr Vegan. You're 24hr Vegan.
#repost @someveganfacts Get some facts about your food. Please, before you stuff more muscle and flesh in your mouth, spend 10 minutes researching where that meal comes from, how it's made, treated and kept. Then and only then can you make a fair choice on wether it's right or now. Eating animals because you were raised to believe it okay, acceptable or your right, means you do not think for yourself, you're a drone, a follower. Be you, be smart, be aware. #vegan#veganism#vegansofinstagram#theyrenotfood#keepanimalsoffyourplate#love
I made this for supper last night, it's sweet and sour chickpeas with peppers and it is ahhhh-mazing!! 😍😍😍😍 Let me add that my husband is NOT a fan of chickpeas but I have been trying to somehow get him to eat more of them since they are high in protein and fiber...he L-O-V-E-S this dish!! 😲👍 He even said he would be "happy to eat this everyday for the rest of his life!" 😂
Its simple to make too!
The sauce is just:
1/2 cup sugar
8 tablespoons white vinegar
3 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
4 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons cornstarch whisked with 3 tablespoons water
Set aside sauce mixture.
For chickpeas and peppers:
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic
1 large red bell pepper, sliced
1 large green bell pepper, sliced
2 cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon sesame seeds *Over medium heat, add olive oil, peppers, salt and pepper; sauté for 3-4 mins until peppers are heated through and are somewhat tender. Add garlic and stir into the peppers. Sauté 1 min. Add chickpeas and stir into the peppers. Cook 1-2 mins. Add sauce mixture and stir all together. Lower temp to low simmer and cook 8-10 mins. At last minute, toss sesame seeds in and give it one last stir. Serve immediately with steamed rice. 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
