Which one are you?
I'm sure a lot of people have their two cents on this. This is just my opinion and how I interpret my veganism. I definitely don't want to start any infighting, there's no shortage of people already attacking vegans.
But after I put up my recent post about chips, a few people asked why I said palm oil isn't vegan so I thought I'd cover a few things. .
Eating plant based is precisely that: eating only plant based food.
I and many others believe that being vegan is a lifestyle that doesn't end on your plate.
It means making other choices to avoid the suffering or killing of animals. For example (but not limited to):
Not buying leather, wool, or any other clothing that requires taking something from animals. .
Not buying products that contain palm oil, as the production of palm oil is the major cause of deforestation in many areas of great animal abundance and diversity, and results in the loss of many animal lives (rare ones too!)
Not using cosmetics that contain animal products or were tested on animals.
Not buying pets from breeders but adopting the many that are abandoned in animal shelters and waiting to be put down.
Not buying honey; bees are robbed of their food source and the selective breeding to produce more honey results in less genetic diversity and is a cause of mass die off.
As I said this isn't everything and part of being vegan is doing our best to figure out steps we can take to prevent animal death and suffering. .
I want to say I support anyone practicing veganism in anyway they interpret it, I just wanted to share some thoughts to consider for anyone starting out. None of us will be able to do this 100% perfectly all the time. Sometimes we have no idea that something contains an animal product! And sometimes there's no other option; such as a life saving medicine.
So I hope this was helpful to someone. I wish you all the best on the journey you're taking.
This tomato 🍅 , red lentil 🔴, sweet potato 🍠 and coconut cream 🌴 soup racked in around 40g of protein in one bowl, while tasting unreal😋. If you don't used coconut or cashew cream in your vegan dishes, start to - it works with the sweet potato adding a sweet curry like feel to the dish 😉🔥...something completely different! .
This one was full of healthy vitamins and minerals, and as it was all blended in to a soup, it is perfect for a smooth and fast digestion! 😜

“Live detox” tea, from “The Hot Belly Diet” contains a blend of cumin, coriander, fennel seeds, fresh ginger and lemon juice with green tea brew as the base. Make in the morning and sip thru the day from 8am to 4pm. “It will stimulate your digestive juices and rev your metabolism, for the compounds in the brew help to burn fat. It also helps keep you hydrated...” To make: 1 quart of water, add a teaspoonful each of whole fennel, coriander and cumin seeds. Add 1/2 teaspoon of grated ginger, bag of green tea and bring to boil. Strain mixture into a thermos or other container and squeeze half a lemon into it.” (I use a bit more ginger and decaf green tea)I boil mine about 5-minutes in morning then let it sit while I drink my coffee & tend to morning stuff. Later I bring it back to a boil, pour one cup to drink then and put rest in a big Yeti cup. It’s an “assist” to my current program that you can read about in another post😎 #detoxtea#hotbellydiet#burnfatburn#veganguys#goveganfortheanimals#friendsnotfood#longevity#livelaughlovelife#ayurvedic
