in the dairy industry, female cows are artificially inseminated so that lactation is induced. Because like all other mammals, she has to reproduce in order to produce milk. Once she gives birth, her baby is taken from her. We can't have her baby drinking the milk that she produced for her baby because we need that milk for profit/cheese. If her baby is a female, she is turned into a milk machine. Just like her mom. And if her baby is a male, he is useless to the dairy industry because he can't produce milk. So he is sent of to the veal industry to get his throat slit. This whole process repeats for about 2 years. Which is when her body can barely produce milk and she's so run down that she collapses. When this happens, she's useless to the industry. So she's sent off to be slaughtered for meat. Usually meat used in the fast food industry
And this is why I choose plant products and plant milk over dairy products
What's your favorite plant milk?

Maine was way cool and I was so happy to spend time with my family, especially @lucyawoodard cause I don't get to see her often enough and she's such a great big sister I am always grateful to be able to be in the same space as her. Till next time Maine.
I had a time this weekend, with my best friend and I exploring my new home town.🍾
Now I'm doing research on prenatal yoga, because I just may write a review article on it, a little holistic/nutrition/mental clarity inspiration going on. 👩🏼⚕️👁🌞
(: Keep your head up beautiful, the full moon is here tomorrow. 🌚🌝
My wish that I've been wishing for over a year finally came true! I got vegan Yeezys! Unfortunately the 350 V2's have suede which is the skin of sentient beings who wanted to live. And I don't want to support that. Not only does suede cause unnecessary harm and death upon innocent beings. People as young as 10 years old work in tanneries. Which is where they preserve the rotting skin aka leather/suede with chemicals. These people are working in essentially vats full of acid. And cities that have tanneries are getting polluted by all of the chemicals coming out of the factories. So it also negatively affects the locals.
Suede is someone else's dead skin. And that dead skin is killing our planet, the people, and the animals.
Luxurious? Ugh as if!
These Yeezys from @ricksneaker have the exact same comfort and quality as Kanye's Yeezys but without the cruelty and destruction. Plus they're a lot more affordable. Especially if you use the code: SORSHA
at the checkout to safe some more 💸
I'm over the moon about these ☁️
I made a video going more in depth about all of this... .

Late night snack, which consists of papaya, blueberries, banana, and mango; to which I want to add that, that mango was probably the BEST mango I have eaten in quite some time because it was the perfect level of sweetness and it... It was delicious I probably sound insane but if you're a vegan you know what I'm talking about.
Many things happened so far this summer to inspire me to rethink, reprioritize, readjust, redirect... and reenergize. This isn't one of those things where I reach a finish line and get to throw my arms up in victory. I have to switch to *marathon runner mode* and tap into my inner conviction. That's life, in a nutshell.
I talk about a variety of things online, but do you know what is my *PASSION*? Have you read the "Intro" statement on my page? It's been the same for years, and I'm excited that *I just committed myself to a new avenue in alignment with that mission statement* (btw, I think it's essential to have personal mission and vision statements for ourselves!). God's timing is everything. More to come very soon.
When they tell you that vegans have to worry about deficiencies yet they're taking vitamins and supplements while we're getting our vitamins and nutrients from plants. Vegans only make up only about 5% of the US population, we're not the ones funding the multibillion dollar vitamin and supplement industry
btw I can't get over how OBSESSED I am with this

This piece is groundbreaking to say the least
Here's to a new chapter. ✨☕️
Today was my first morning in my new apartment where I've been able to sit & enjoy some of my favorite things... I'm missing coffee talks with my little guy. 🐶
Bowl: Cream of buckwheat cooked in honey and cinnamon + coconut yoghurt, blueberries, avocado 💛, & chia seeds.
Cup: Jesus on earth. "Un' espresso doppio" + steamed hemp milk. YES, hemp for healthy neurotransmitter function... basically I'll be in a good ass mood today.
Buon venerdì. 🍂

Went for a 5km run today but on my way back stumbled across this outdoor gym. Couldn't pass up the opportunity to do some chin ups, hanging leg raises and dips • did 5 x AMRAP on chin ups (did 3, 3, 3, 2, 2) • 3 x 7 hanging leg raises • 4 x 5 dips (although I could only do 3 reps for the last 2 sets). Even while traveling I find time to get in some exercise, it helps me feel more energized during the day 💪🏼🏃🏻♀️
Y'all know that with pregnancy you have to drink tons of water!! But drinking water is easier when you have a cool tumbler to do it from!! @takeyausa new collection is EVERYTHING! I love the boldness and pop of color these bottles bring!! 😍💗
