The more meat we eat, the more cows there are producing greenhouse gases. 💨 .
Cows, sheep and goats, compared to single stomach animals (pigs and chickens), suck at converting food in their bodies, so they burp and fart a lot. 🐂🐄🐐🐑 I'm not joking. Enteric formation, or LITERAL COW FARTS, releases methane into the atmosphere! 💨💨💨
Most of us know that the energy sector is a mess when it comes to producing carbon emissions. But did you know that 8 years ago, a study published in Climatic Change, found that 18% of global greenhouse gas emissions were from livestock production? That is more than the transportation sector’s (including planes), and that was eight years ago!! .
Keep following for actual ways to help without completely giving up meat, and check out the blog post ‘Meat of the Matter: Four ways what’s on your plate can change the fate of the world’ for sources and more info (link in bio).

Looking for a way to warm up on this cool night? Try this delicious butternut squash soup.. did I also mention that it is an easy, no brainer #slowcooker recipe?!

#recipe Combine 2 cups vegetable stock, 2 minced garlic cloves, 1 diced carrot, 1 diced Granny Smith apple, 1 medium butternut squash diced, 1 sprig sage, 1 diced onion, 1/8 tsp cayenne, pinch of cinnamon & nutmeg and salt and pepper in a slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hrs or high for 4 hrs.

This book is all about figuring out your power type as a woman and ways you can stay in balance + be the healthiest/happiest version of yourself.

And everything that it describes sounds so on point 💯
I am so excited to put what I am reading into action 👊 🤘
This place is breathtaking. The nature is incredible and we all must do our part to preserve the only planet 🌎 we’ve got. #Earth would look more like #Kaua ’i If humans didn’t find ways to destroy it. We all can contribute and have an immediate effect. Start by #meatlessmonday Even a day without a meat will have a significant positive effect on our planet. #govegan#plantbased#savetheearth#climatechange
Start a new tradition and make Christmas a #meatlessmonday 88% of Americans will have turkey this Thanksgiving and Christmas but the number of meat and dairy consumers is dropping. With new enlightenment/ knowledge being shared through documentaries and photos the cruelty is hard ignore and the guilt harder to bare. Start a conversation at your table with one of our original sweaters and help spread the word. 46million Turkeys slaughtered for Thanksgiving, 22million for Christmas, living in awful conditions. It’s not hard to find the heartbreaking truth of how these animals are exploited. 10%of our proceeds from the Xmas Turkey gear goes to @farmsanctuary where now on their site you can adopt/sponsor a turkey.🦃❤️. #peta#vegan#vegetarian#meatlessmonday#veganfood#vegansofinstagram
Once a week I don’t have to #flex my meal, as my family enjoys a bowl of vegetable and bean soup 🥣 We have it with a baguette to sop up the brothy goodness and enjoy a low key meal.
Do I wish that sometimes I could venture out and offer a delicious African Peanut Stew? Or hearty Tuscan Minestrone...🙃 Right now, I’m just thankful that my three year old (who is eating soup with fingers 😐) is pulling out the chickpeas because ‘they’re the best’ 👍
Our ‘Plain Jane’ Vegetable Soup:
1 Onion, diced
2 Carrots, chopped
3 Celery, chopped
4 Potatoes, chopped
5 Cups Vegetable Broth (ok, I really used 4...but that would have ruined the visual appeal of this recipe you won’t be making)
- put in pot and cook for 15-20 minutes
- drain and rinse 1 can of mixed beans, and stir in and cook for another 5-10 minutes, till vegetables are soft and beans are heated through.
This holiday season, I’m grateful for @realfooddaily happy hour, because how fucking cute are these little baby sliders?! -
Pro tip: order a side of cashew cheese and slather that shit all over the burgers 👌🏽. -
On a lighter note, this is your friendly vegan reminder to pretty please leave animals off your plate this holiday season. 45 million turkeys will be slaughtered for thanksgiving meals on Thursday, and for what? So you can feel tired AF and not have the energy to socialize with your family? That’s what whiskey is for, folks. -
So class it up this holiday season and have an old fashion with some bomb, plant-based foods instead. -
Fuck traditions and “the way we’ve always done things.” The way we’ve always done things is cruel, unnecessary, and outdated. Veganism is the future, folks. Get onboard.

Yesterday's Meatfree Monday! ❤️
My one pot Veggi Chilli with Avocado Creme freiche & homemade Tortilla Chips ❤️💃🏼
All made in 20 mins!!!
This recipe is vegan if you don't have the Creme Fraiche topping 🤗
it's been AGES since I've posted a recipe, been super busy and I've also enjoyed a couple of weeks doing hellofresh meals so I've been cheating slightly 😜
150g of uncooked Bulgar Wheat, or Quinoa.
X1 can of kidney beans
Tomato puree, good squeeze
Chilli powder sprinkle
400ml of vegetable stock
Tin of tomatoes
Splash of red wine
Splash of lea and perrins
Creme fraiche ,Avocado & fresh Lime for topping.
See photos to help for method.
Fry carrots and peppers.
After 3 mins add spices (powder, cumin and paste)
Stir then pour in the stock.
Simmer for 5 then add in your tom puree, wine, bulger wheat, tinned toms, kidney beans and chopped coriander stalks. (Set the leaves to one side) Simmer until wheat is cooked.
Whilst this is cooking, cut your tortilla wraps into triangles, spread on a tray and spray with oil, bake for 8 mins. These are soooo good by the way. 🌮🌮🌮 Whizz up your Creme fraiche with half avo, salt, pepper and fresh lime. (Just make normal guacamole if you are a vegan)
Once chilli is cooked through and thicker, season with salt and pepper and add to a bowl, top with the topping, sprinkle coriander leaves and pop in your chips!
Scoop and eat! Yummmmmm ❤️❤️❤️
3 Vegan Hot Dogs - Which one would you choose?⠀
The 3 amigos, courtesy of @alpha.foods! I just *had* to get the Crunchy Miso Dog, and didn't regret it for a second! I got a 'plain' for the girls. The little one LOVED her first ever hot dog (vegan of course!) #meatlessmonday ⠀

My ultimate oatmeal bowl loaded with
Steel cut oats
hemp hearts,flaxseed,walnuts,peanut butter,coconut, chocolate almond and soy milk. Also a 🍌 which was not in this picture. Talk about yummy and nutritious 😝💕🌿🌸🙌
Lunch today was halloumi with a homemade tabbouleh 🙌🏻. I’ve been off work looking after my son who has croup so I’ve had time to cook properly for myself instead of having lunch al desko like normal 🤣. Artie’s better although he’s barely eaten a thing all day and still has a temperature. Luckily my hubby is on a flight home tonight so I can get back to work tomorrow 👍🏻. I’m exhausted and looking forward to going back to work for a break! The recipe is a very old @jamieoliver one by the way! #meatfree#vegetarianrecipes#lovelylunch
Prepped lunches this week because I know it’s going to be busy with the holiday coming up. @hilaryseatwell veggie patty (believe it or not this was my 1st time trying these‼️), greens, watermelon radishes, snap peas, roasted yellow cauliflower, and cabbage from @wildlyfermented. #meatlessmonday The dressing is lemon juice, @pasolivo lemon olive oil, tahini, salt, and pepper.

I am cleaning out our pantry, freezer, and shelves in the upcoming month to use up foods that have been sitting in there too long. First on the menu - the chickpea (or Garbanzo bean). I coated them with olive oil and spices and let them roast in the oven for about 30 minutes to get these amazing Crispy Turmeric Roasted Chickpeas <3 Great Vegan & Gluten-Free healthy snack or delicious salad topping! ;) Link to recipe in bio #vibrantplate
I would say I follow a plant based diet 80% of the time. The other 20% I add salmon, chicken, or eggs to my meals. But of course, the salmon has to be sustainably wild caught, the chicken and eggs cage free, organic and free of growth hormones.
Last night was supposed to be #meatlessmonday but due to being underprepared, we had no tempeh in the house 😭
If you’ve never tried adding pomegranate arils to your food, you most definitely should! They’re so tart and full of antioxidants. They go really well in salads, squash based meals, and with brussel sprouts! (Will be making as a side for thanksgiving and follow up on these 🙃)
