BEEF & DAIRY CATTLE ARE BEING RAISED ON US SOIL- THEN SHIPPED TO COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD. The #inhumane treatment of animlals for the food supply is a disturbing one and should not be overlooked. Here, we are focusing on #energy , #carbonemissions and #globalwarming The US ships livestock, in this case meat and dairy cows to places like #Vietnam#China (recently approved) #Kazakhstan#Europe Et al. This practice happens worldwide! FACTS NOT FEAR: via #OneGreenPlanet
-More than a third of all raw materials and #fossilfuel 's consumed in the United States are used in animal production. -The production of one calorie of animal #protein requires more than 10 times the #fossilfuel input as a calorie of plant protein
-Producing a single hamburger uses enough fuel to drive 20 miles and causes the loss of five times its weight and topsoil. -Animals raised for food produce approximately 130 times as much excrement and waste as the entire human population.
-Animal farms pollute our water- and the effects of raising beef/dairy #livestock is >all other industrial sources combined! -Runoffs of animal waste #pesticides#chemicals#fertilizers#hormones and #antibiotics and contribute to dead zones in coastal areas, #degradation of coral reef and human health problems.
THIS IS WHAT WE ARE SHARING WITH OTHER COUNTRIES?
-Big beef organizations would have you believe beef/dairy cattle are needed to feed the hungry in other countries.
There are more resourceful ways to combat #hunger . Why add this enormous environmental strain to poor countries? We should be sending people and seeds to teach them to grow their own, healthier foods. It would be more economical and environmentally sound however the big beef lobby is too strong to fight. Solutions? Sharing this info to the masses. We all know Beyonce had her twins, how many know cows are being treated this way? Call your reps! BlameTheLawmakers that use our tax dollars to fund this harm! #PlantBased

Whole30 Roasted Salmon with Cinnamon-Turmeric Sweet Potatoes
We reintroduced yogurt today, and since I couldn't think of a yogurt themed dinner I wanted to make (read: quick, easy, with ingredients I have 😬🙈), I decided to roast up some salmon instead! I made it super simple tonight and sprayed them with olive oil, sprinkled them with an everything bagel spice mix, and put them in the oven at 400*F for about 15-ish mins. I had already been roasting some sweet potatoes with a new to me mix of cinnamon, turmeric, thyme, salt, and pepper. I have heard about the great health benefits turmeric has but have been dragging my feet on trying it. No more! These were actually really yummy! I finished our plates with some (previously frozen) spinach and a bowl of leftover stew from the other day. This turned out to be a great, filling dinner.
