#Enlightenment is when a wave realizes it is the #ocean 
Animal products will not only clog your arteries, it will end Earth's magnificent diversity of life

Humble oneself and see the truth, remove the #babylon veil.

Ingredients: 
1 Nori sheet
250 grams colocasia roots or arbi/arvi 
Lettuce leaves 
1/2 English Cucumber, julienned 
Yellow and red bell peppers
3 cloves garlic, minced 
2 tsp soy sauce 
2 tsp sriracha sauce 
1/2 tsp wasabi 
Procedure:.
🔹Boil the colocasia roots in salted water. Fry them until they are nice and crisp
🔹In a wok stir fry all the vegetables except the cucumber.
🔹Add soy, wasabi, sriracha sauce and stir well.
🔹On a flat surface lay out the nori sheet and once the vegetables are back to room temperature start placing them on the centre of the nori.
🔹Roll the nori into a sort of a burrito and cut it into half.

Easy Vegan & Gluten Free Crackers 🌿

Another great recipe from @ohsheglows that's a perfect snack for children since it's free of  synthetic chemicals and can be made totally organic. 🍃
These are 2 important considerations when choosing snacks for children since their immature bodies cannot break down synthetic chemicals and eliminate them as well as adults. 
I replaced the rice flour in this recipe with chickpea flour to avoid the arsenic that's found in rice products. 
Top with some organic nut butter to add the healthy fats children need for their brain development. •••

Urban Greenery🍃🌿🌻🌷
••• The global population is estimated to reach up to 11 billion by the year 2050 with small and medium sized cities expanding more than megacities. More greenery in all cities is crucial for many reasons. •••
Health Benefits of Urban Greenery: 🌿

Increasing greenery in the form of parks, trees, rooftop gardens, backyard gardens, and even flowers along sidewalks is critical to people's health and well being. 🌿🍃 1)  Greenery can filter out significant amounts of city pollution and dust. 🌷
2)  Help to limit the heat-trapping effects of carbon dioxide emissions, thereby reducing city temperatures and saving on the cost of air conditioning. 🌻
3)  Local trees can help reduce asthma and allergic reactions for children living nearby. 🌹
4)  Cities are now home to an assortment of plants and animals. More greenery will provide more protection. 🍁
5)  Even small urban gardens provide habitat for bees to pollinate. 🐝

Do your part where possible. Plant  shrubs, small trees, flowers, gardens ( balcony or backyard ). It all helps. 🌷

Cool, rainy days call for comfort food! 🌿💚
What's better than having @ohsheglows Vegan Gravy over a lentil burger, organic Yukon gold potatoes and lots of colourful vegetables?!! ( and of course keeping the gravy pitcher close by for top-ups!) 🍃
•••
Traditional gravy made from the juices of cooked meat dates back to 3000 BC and the first gravy recipes come from ancient Egypt. But gravy can be veganized too!

House Plants 🌿🍃,,, place several plants together to increase a room's humidity. Just one of the many reasons to enjoy house plants for more than just decor. 🌿🍃
••••
Health Benefits 🌿
1)  Purify the air. Removes up to 87% of VOC's,  reduces the formaldehyde present in rugs, vinyl, cigarette smoke, plastic and grocery bags, reduces benzene found in man made fibres, solvents, inks, &paints. Researchers found that these contaminants are pulled into the soil and converted by the plant into plant food. 🌿
2)  Releases water - about 97% of the water plants absorb is released into the air decreasing dry skin, sore throats and dry coughs. 🌿
3)  Breathing easier - during photosynthesis oxygen is released and carbon dioxide is absorbed by the plant.  At night plants respire like we do with the exception of these few plants that are especially good for the bedroom as they release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide all night - Spider, Dragon Tree, English Ivy, Boston Fern, Snake plant and Peace Lily 🌿
4)  Improve health: 
When plants are added to hospital rooms it speeds recovery;  to offices it reduces fatigue,colds, headaches, coughs, sore throats, and generally lowers sick time by up to 60%; to student areas it increases attendance and sharpens focus. 
With all these benefits why do we not see more indoor plants EVERYWHERE??!!

Circadian Rhythm or "Body Clock",,, •••
Circadian clock is roughly a 24 hr cycle that responds to light and darkness telling  our bodies when to sleep, rise, eat - there are clear patterns of brain wave activity, hormonal production, cell regeneration and other biological activities linked to this vital daily cycle. 🌿🍃
•••
Sleep is regulated by the pineal gland, an area of the brain that responds to light - why we are more alert when the sun is shining and ready to sleep when it's dark.
Melatonin is a hormone produced by this gland, which is connected to the eyes, with production peaking between 2am and 5 am then shutting off at sunrise. 🌿🍃
•••
🌿
Researchers are looking at the adverse health affects of having this sleep cycle disrupted,,, increasing cardiovascular events, obesity, neurological problems such as depression and bipolar disorder, as well as cancer.  Sleeping in a darkened room and adhering to a regular bedtime schedule makes a huge difference in how well your body responds to the cues. 🌿
•••
When studying breast cancer it was found that women with higher levels of melatonin in their blood have lower rates of breast cancer.  Night shift workers and those living in highly lit areas would have a higher breast cancer risk.  It has also been found that blind women have half the odds of getting breast cancer since their pineal glands keep secreting melatonin into their bloodstreams. 🌿🍃
•••
Can diet affect melatonin levels? Apparently yes,,, Researchers reported an association between higher vegetable intake and higher melatonin levels in the bloodstream. ✅
Meat was the only food that was associated with lower melatonin production. Another noteworthy reason to reduce, or avoid, meat consumption. •••

Another reason why I'm doing this trip is to show how magical and incredibly beautiful this world is. I really love to see scenic landscapes or a stunning sunset because it means the world to me and my heart feels so much lighter and I just feel instantly connected to myself. Therefore I want to protect it for the future but often it seems that all efforts and struggles are waistless anyway and that we're way to late to stop this destruction of our own planet. We are not even slowing down the speed let alone turn around from the wall we are about to crash into. There are so many people that don't even believe climate change is a real thing!? I don't know how they can NOT see it! But people choose what to see and to what they just want to look away. As if this makes it any less real! I want to have this abundance of beauty to be still there for the future generation when I have kids (and then their kids and so on) and they maybe want to go on a similare adventure like mine. Imagine that one day people are telling there children stories about a world where you could once find beautiful forests and clean oceans and drinkable water and fresh air and oh all the fantastic animals that where living on this very same planet and they will think it's a fairytale because their world will be so much different from the world we know right now. 
That sounds pretty depressing right? But that's what keeps me going and why I have gadgets at home that safe water, electricity and gas. That's why I try to avoid plastic and always have a tote with me and why I normally drink water of glass bottles and reuse them with tab water and so on. That's why I'm vegan even though all my friends are not (which I'm fine with btw but sometimes it's hard)...
.
I still don't feel like this is enough. 
I would love to do more! 
What can I do? .

I want to have this abundance of beauty to be still there for the future generation when I have kids (and then their kids and so on) and they maybe want to go on a similare adventure like mine. Imagine that one day people are telling there children stories about a world where you could once find beautiful forests and clean oceans and drinkable water and fresh air and oh all the fantastic animals that where living on this very same planet and they will think it's a fairytale because their world will be so much different from the world we know right now. That sounds pretty depressing right? But that's what keeps me going and why I have gadgets at home that safe water, electricity and gas. That's why I try to avoid plastic and always have a tote with me and why I normally drink water of glass bottles and reuse them with tab water and so on. That's why I'm vegan even though all my friends are not (which I'm fine with btw but sometimes it's hard)... . I still don't feel like this is enough. I would love to do more!

This is why we all should eat a plant-based diet which is friendly to our colons.  Trust me, you'll thank yourself within the first month of being plant-strong.  Give it a try because the only thing you have to loose is your physical and emotional pains.  #vegan #vegetarian #loveallbeings #onelove #lifeisgreat #onelife #loveyourself #govegan #cleanfoodcleancolon #compassionate #crueltyfree #nonGMO #fuckMosanto #eatyoualive #careforyourcolon #veganboy #veganmatters #donotquit #keepitup #tgivegan #badcolonbadhealth #doyourcleanse #whynot #meatlover #meetyourmeat #besmart #plantbased #plantmuscles #meatlovers

Today:  Vegan spaghetti & 'homemade vegan meatballs'  I'm thankful for all the positive feedback on my recipes I share. It's always nice for ppl to compliment my vegan dishes, my point however is to show you that You Too can be vegan And you can enjoy your food still!!! Going vegan is multi faceted, in the African American community women over 20 years old , 49%  have or are developing some kind of heart disease. 80% of of African Americans are lactose intolerant, 85% of Jews are lactose intolerant.  This is telling us loud and clear that our bodies are Not enjoying the animal products and salt that they're being given, not only that, but at the rate that Americans are eating meat, it is likely that our planet will be un-inhabitable for our children and grandchildren.  This is not an environmental issue or a vegan issue or yogi issue or granola ppl issue.  This is a human issue.  When you go vegan you have a greater chance of living a longer healthier happier present life and securing your children's lives on this planet.  Don't be distracted by the bull.  Love!!!😘 #veganmatters #loveyourselfloveyourcholdrensfuture

Why should we eat animlas when there's soo many other things to eat?? I hate people that question my choice as vegan. I Love my horses, why would i want to eat them or any other animal? My horse is my best friend, my soulmate, the Love of my life and he's always there for me. I will never ever in my life eat something taken from animals. And Yeah i forgot, this was afternoonsnack today. #vegan #veganhorseowner #smoothie #smoothiebowl #smoothiebowls #vegansmoothiebowl #chiaseeds #plantbased #veganism #pinksmoothie #healthyvegan #whyimvegan #veganmatters #mychoice #veganchoice #whyveganfood #whyvegandiet #tagsforlikes
