COWS GIVE US MILK
by Jenny Moxham .
"Cows give us milk" how often do we hear that little phrase,
It sounds so inoffensive, don't you think?
It simply wouldn't sound as nice to say "we steal the milk That's intended for a new born calf to drink". And it wouldn't do to say that cows are forced to have a baby,
Not one baby but a baby every year,
For a cow, like any lady, has to have a little baby
Or her milk supply will simply disappear.
And it wouldn't seem so civilized to publicize the fact
That the tiny babe is snatched away and killed,
So the milk designed to feed him can be cleverly extracted
Just so human folk can have their tummies filled.
So this oft repeated phrase makes the dairy people happy,
Those who drink the milk are happy, and it seems a happy scene,
But the cow with udder swollen, and her new born baby stolen
Is the sad and tragic victim of this industry obscene.

Got my new front brake rotors and pads installed today even after it started to rain. @chicago_enduro_mtb was super helpful and supervised like a boss. I discovered i could get about another 1000 miles or so out of the rears,but i have the parts waiting. 🤘🚘

Vegan nachos are my everything 😍 I use @sietefoods sea salt grain-free almond flour tortilla chips and they are sooooo good. They carry them at Whole Foods, Fresh Thyme or Sprouts and some select health food stores. I top them with cashew nacho cheese, black beans (or refried), black olives, cherry tomatoes, and guacamole. 🥑
Nacho cheese recipe:
Add ingredients to blender (you’ll need a powerful one or a Bullet to get it smooth and creamy:
1 c. soaked or boiled raw cashews
1 tsp. mustard powder
1 tsp. SMOKED paprika
1 tbs. chickpea miso
1/2 lemon juice squeeze
2 soaked sundried tomatoes or 1 tbs tomato paste
1 tsp. chili powder
1 c. almond milk or to desired consistency
1 tbs sea salt
1 garlic clove or 1 tsp. powder
1 tsp. onion powder
Loved having a stroll around Newcastle proudly wearing my Vegan Stag sweater 💙 nothing like some fashion activism to spread the message. You can't love animals and eat them too. 😉🍃 #uncaptive#veganactivist

"En promille av alla livsmedel består av annat än växtbaserad livsmedel - ändå är det som vi i Sverige mest äter av" trots påverkan på hälsa och miljö. Detta föreläser just nu överläkaren i Onkologi - David Stenholtz om på en föreläsning om kost och cancer som vi arrangerar med @nbvstockholmslan . Det är även fullt hus då intresset för hälsa, miljö och kost är stort! #veganrevolution
😕How do you overcome self doubt?? Have you ever doubted yourself?
🦄A bird sitting on a tree branch is never afraid of the branch breaking, because the bird's trust is not in the branch but it's own ability to fly.
🐍Self doubt is a big issue for a lot of people. Eliminating it isn't easy but here are some ways I've found that work.
✔️Stop that doubtful voice in your head as soon as it starts to speak up by Disrupting negative thought patterns instantly.
✔️Notice how far you've come. A little progress is still progress.
✔️See any set backs as temporary.
✔️Forget what other will think. Most people have to much stuff going and are focused on themselves so don't worry about what other think of you.
✔️Sharpen your skills. Once you are competent you will become confident.

This week the Tories voted that animals are not ‘sentient’ beings and ‘cannot feel pain or emotions’ I wonder if they would take the same attitude if their beloved dog or cat was being ripped apart or tortured? #doublestandards#endthesuffering#govegan

«Viviamo in una società che ci porta a incessanti momenti di amnesia. È come se la corrente che alimenta la nostra consapevolezza dell'ingiustizia, della compassione e dell’empatia, fosse una corrente alternata. All’inizio del mio impegno cercavo quindi un modo per resistere a queste amnesie socialmente indotte, un modo che in ogni secondo della giornata mi riportasse all'urgenza della lotta. Ogni singolo secondo. Ed ogni secondo sono non meno di 40.000 le persone non umane uccise solo per soddisfare il nostro palato. Ho voluto fermare, o forse mantenere sempre pulsante sulla mia pelle, questo secondo, questo numero, questa consapevolezza. La X è stata scelta perché neutro e anonimo "segno di spunta", un simbolo che usiamo quando abbiamo finito di fare una cosa, di contare una cosa, di uccidere una "cosa"».
Ditch Dairy! 🐄 That was the main message of today's slaughterhouse disruption in Brisbane, Queensland. 24 brave activists entered the slaughterhouse and livestreamed what they saw - baby calves were hungry, exhausted, scared, and crying for their mothers 😔 Almost 60 activists held signs outside the slaughterhouse to raise awareness ✊ With such a large group of people and plenty of police, we managed to attract mainstream media coverage of the event!! And the activists weren't charged, so it was a very successful protest 👏 However, unfortunately, all those babies have probably been murdered by now 😢 All we can do is keep recording and sharing this information with the public... epic video of today's action coming very soon so make sure you're subscribed to our YouTube channel (📽That Vegan Couple) and turn on notifications. If you still consume dairy in any form, PLEASE stop. It is such a cruel industry that literally kidnaps and slaughters babies (learn the truth at www.ditchdairy.com.au). We can stop this violence by not buying it - it's that simple! Choose vegan dairy alternatives instead and nobody gets hurt ✌ Thanks to @animallibqld and Animal Activists Australia for organizing this protest. And a huge thank you to the brave activists who risked a lot by entering the slaughterhouse to raise public awareness and expose the cruelty of the dairy industry, as well as to all the amazing people who took the time to attend and speak up for our animal friends. Those little darlings are suffering so much and they need us all to be their voicess. And that's why going vegan is the least we can do, and being a vegan activist is the necessary next step ✊
So happy to meet Elika @elika.fit today at her cafe Kitchen by Food Rebel @foodrebelsg here in Singapore's business district. Elika'a story of going from busy white collar professional to getting her hands dirty building something new obviously resonates with us at ABV! Check out our review on our site link and head to @foodrebelsg for amazing plant-based creations! Thank you Elika!!!
#TransformationTuesday 2 whole years ago climbing up Ben Nevis in Scotland 🏔 I was #RawTill4 vegan at this point, finished first year of uni and just been introduced to the gym! I was always active growing up, doing horse riding and hiking (my favourite thing to do 😍) which kept me in reasonable shape, but at uni was drinking a lot more and sitting around studying 📚🍻🍹 I started off going to HIIT classes and body pump, quickly finding a love for weightlifting. Once you find something you love doing you become unstoppable 💪🏼🔥 looking back I was happy at this point, and I’m happy now. You never know what’s round the corner for you and what you’re going to fall in love with next if you’re open to it. Stay positive and open guys 😼💜 #BeanieBod#BeanieBrain
How many hours of #cookin ’ #vegan delights can be squeezed into only 48 hours in #Budapest ? Apparently much more than sleeping hours! 😂
I did a truly incredible and superb productive mini tour to #Hungary , #celebrating my freshly published #cookbook . ☺️ Thank you @dear_budapest, for allowing me to turn the #DearBudapest#kitchen into vegan wonderland with my sous-chef & partner in crime @kinga_wertheimer of @vegantunkitunki, and thank you so much @zsofiaperger of @perger_design & @szilvispan_redheads for doin’ your #RedheadsDesign magic at our @redheads_shop mini pop-up store throughout the #brunch & #dinner . ❤️ Toda for documenting it all @gezatalaber - see even more on the artist’s FB page!
Although it was an insane run, it was more than beautiful - soaking the #xmas vibes in, and giving back to the #Hungarian vegan & veggie friendly #community I get so many magical moments from. 😘 Heartfelt hugs to all of you beautiful people for brunchin’ & #dining with me - your #love & support is never taken for granted, your openmindedness, your excitement and your #HUNGER for more inspires me on so many levels, my body & mind was perfectly fine with compromising on 4.5 hours of sleep throughout the past 72 hours. 😂
Are you betchez in my gang? 😉 Never miss a #KristofsKitchen Hungary event - and dive into hundreds of #VeganFoodPorn creations by thousands of foodies in our FB group #TitkosVegánTraccsParti ✌🏻See u in January - or at our home restaurant in Tel Aviv, #KristofsKitchenAndNimiBar 😊

These past couple of weekends have been so wonderful... tons of amazing adventures with people who make me smile so much my jaw hurts. It is such a blessing to know people who accept and support every piece of you, while at the same time motivate and inspire you to reach for more! Never could I have imagined my life turning out this way when I moved to California not knowing anyone. I'm not rich or have absolutely everything.. but it sorta feels like I do when there's so much to be thankful for and happy about. I'm so grateful for all that is right now and all that is to come!!!
Heres my vegan lentil loaf bringing it to all the Thanksgiving parties! Had a great time yesterday in LA at Friendsgiving with everyone! Loved seeing all the LA friends I don't always see and meeting some new ones! Thanks to @consciouschris and @sweetsimplevegan for having us🤗
You really don’t have to miss out on anything by going vegan. Here is another example of an easy, convenient, filling alternative to a standard #fryup#brekkie if you are ever in Coventry pop in and try out the @playwrightscoventry for great food and service.
Whilst we are on the subject of #easyVeganmeals . Here is another pretty normal, incredibly easy, not very healthy, standard average dinner for most. Tastes good. Fills the gap. Takes no preparation. Only difference is the #absenceofcruelty . Being Vegan isn’t just about being healthy or spending all day in the kitchen as this meal clearly shows.
