Just think what the human race could accomplish, if we learned what the animals already know! _ "Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws." _ "Mother's love is peace.

Every Year, Millions of Newborns Are Killed For Their Mothers' Milk All babies born to females used for milk production are torn from their mothers shortly after birth. They are barely days old, umbilical chord still attached, coat still slick from the birth fluids, legs wobbly, eyes unfocused. They are defenseless. They are frightened. They cry pitifully for their mothers. They all beg for their mothers in language that requires no translation. They live their entire short lives as orphans, their only experience of mother love, one of yearning for it, their only experience of emotional connection, one of absence. Soon, the memory of the mother’s face, her voice, her scent will fade, but the painful, irrepressible longing for her warmth will still be there. At four months old, the “veal” calves are corralled into trucks and hauled to slaughter. As they are dragged onto the killing floor, they are still looking for their mothers, still desperately needing her nurturing presence, especially at that dark time when they are frightened and needing protection more than ever in the midst of the terrible sights, and sounds, and scents of death all around them, and, in their despair, in their want for a shred of consolation and protection, most try to suckle the fingers of their killers. Dairy is a Death Sentence All dairy production, including Organic, is predicated on ripping apart mother and child. Dairy consumers perpetuate this intentional cruelty with their purchases You can stop it!

Walking home I saw all these ducks all just chilling swimming about together and I was so overcome with adoration and love it made me realise that I've allowed myself to become too angry about the things I care about. Which is not what I want or believe. I think when you are faced with something that tears your heart out every day it's easier to get angry then it is to feel sad. Sad can feel helpless and anger gives an illusion of control. So i am sorry to anyone I've upset or hurt by my actions or words just know they have only ever been out of love and pain that I cant do more to help ✌💚 love will concur in the end 💚✌#veganactivism #vegan

I found this beautiful drawing by @lauraklinke_art on #pinterest ✌🏽read this Phrases a hundred times, but is is still true to me. I know so many people who “love” the dog or cat they live with sooo much. But could never give up their meat 🤨 same eyes, same nose, same mouth, same lungs, same heart ❤️#thereisnodifference we are all equal and some are more equal. 🐖🐄🐕🐓🐈🐀🐜 #youcantloveanimalsandeatthemtoo
There was such a big turn out at the March To Close All Slaughterhouses this year! ✊🏾 Although there were hundreds at the march, attendance for other activism events is much lower. The March is great way for us to come together and speak up for animals but it’s not the only form of activism. We need more activists participating at other events like Chicken Save, Pig Save, Cube of Truth and other demonstrations. There is always so much activism to be done and these events can be very positive! The animals need us 💚 @vancouvermtcas The full video from this event is linked in my profile 😊
◽◽◽◽SWIPE 👈 What you can't stand to see they must endure! Repost from @animalequalityuk ・・・ We recently caught up with our friends at @frysfamily and showed co-founder Wally our #iAnimal pigs film. Wally founded Fry's in part because he witnessed the horrors of intensive pig farming, so this brought back some haunting memories. Now Wally's company is saving millions of pigs and other animals by providing the world with a delicious #plantbased alternative to meat. Give it a try today! On sale at @ocadouk and @hollandandbarrett See what he's seeing at www.ianimal.uk Our food choices subject millions of smart, sensitive beings to this life. After they’ve served us as breeding machines, their bodies give out after a few short years... and they’re killed, too. And what about the pigs, who endure a level of suffering from birth to death that no compassionate person would find acceptable? “Thumping” — grabbing a baby pig by the hind legs and smashing her skull into the wall — is how sick and small ones are killed. And your dollars seal their fate. Breeding pigs spend most of their lives in crates only inches larger than their bodies. Crushing boredom and depression cause compulsive behaviors like head-banging. Do you really want your choices to support such a system?

If you are alive, you feel. You do not want to feel pain and you do not want to die. We do not need to consume animals to live, therefore when we choose to eat them we are saying or momentary pleasure is more valuable then their life, even with delicious #plantbased alternatives.. If you have any questions please ask me or check out @_challenge22_ #netflix has excellent #vegandocumentary to check out. Every person makes a difference, heck every plant based meal saves a life. #lovemademevegan 💜🐷🐄💛

It’s crazy how some animals are designated as “pets” and others are “food.” Avi, our adopted bunny is a Florida white rabbit. These bunnies are bred as “meat rabbits” also used for their fur and for testing on. It is horrifying that Avi’s previous home was going to kill and eat him because they no longer wanted him as a pet. Thankfully someone saved him from death and he ended up with us. Many bunnies aren’t so lucky. Just like all animals they are not food or objects. They are intelligent beings that value their lives and should be respected 🐇❤️

Here are two pigs that I have met this month. They are very similar in a lot of ways. They are both around 7 months old. They are the same breed of pig. They are the same in every single way apart from one: I met the first pig outside a slaughterhouse, moments from his death. I met the second pig at a sanctuary, he will live a long and happy natural life. The first pig is no longer walking the earth. The second is snuggled up in his field after dinner. The first pig dreams to be the second pig. The second pig knows nothing but love and kindness, he knows nothing of the true cruelty in the world. He doesn’t know how lucky he is. This is where you come in. You have the choice, to give pigs and all animals either one of these lives. If you look at it as plainly as this, what would you chose? Which do they deserve? So here are two pigs I met this month. One, I will see again soon, see how big he’s grown and shower him with apples and cuddles. The other I will never see again, not outside of photos or the memories of his screams etched into my brain.
💛🏴Peace for ALL beings 🏴💛 We helped organise a screening last night in Sheffield for the film @dominionmovement. It was a hard watch and reminded us again about the mass amounts of suffering we’re putting animals through each and every day. 😔 . We’re not ones to watch the news but to also hear about what is happening at the US border with kids being separated from families, some babies even as young as 8 months was all just too much today. Suffering is all around us, oppression and prejudice must end. We need to fight for equality for all, no matter what race, age or species. Fight for human liberation and animal liberation, peace for ALL beings. 🏴✊🏼💛
What do you need to make a change? You don't need money, power and poularity. Just a clear vision of your goals - and some courage to fight for it. No matter what the others say, stay true to your values. Stay strong, stay vegan! 🌱 So, here I am packing my stuff for the 24hrs-of-Truth-demo in Berlin, hosted by the animal rights organisation Anonymous for the Voiceless. I'm so excited to meet more than 1000 incredible vegan activits from all over the world at Alexanderplatz. This will be the longest and biggest Cube of Truth+March in history - and I'm sure we will make tons of conversions. 🌱 Do you want any further information about the topic animal rights, watch the documemtary "earthlings" or "cowspiracy" that focusses on the environment. 🌱 #av #avbremen #anonymousforthevoiceless #germany #berlin #alexanderplatz #24hrsoftruth #cubeoftruth #animals #animalrights #vegan #activism #veganactivism #animalliberation #bremen #watchearthlings #loveanimalsdonteatthem #vgang
What aspect of outreach do you need to work on the most? ✨ At the beginning of my activism, it was patience. All of my life I have been pretty impatient, so when I started doing outreach, I knew it was something that I had to work on in order to be more efficient and effective. ✨ When we speak with people about veganism, our biggest challenge is that we are going up against years of conditioning. Yes, there are some conversations that are incredibly powerful and cause people to go vegan on the spot, but, the majority of the time, it is going to take some time...and hard work. ✨ This is why I believe that patience is such an important trait that all of us, as activists, should be working on. Patience is what will allow us to slow down our conversations and really look at the bigger picture. A lot of people (myself included) forget to look at the macro and tend to focus tons of energy on the micro... ✨ Go vegan, now! Stop harming animals, now! Gosh, why can't you just wake up and make the connection? ✨ These are thoughts that I am sure most of you have whilst doing vegan outreach, and don't worry, I have them, too. What patience helped me learn is that we need to look, like I said, macro or big picture. We need to see all the factors and try to understand each individual as best we can in order to achieve success with our conversations. ✨ So, next time you are on outreach, try and look big picture. Try and focus on patience. Even if it takes 30 minutes or multiple conversations, if you speak the truth with conviction, love, and understanding...you will set yourself up for having amazing outreach conversations! ✨ Photo: @diego_casanova #veganoutreach #veganactivism #veganism #veganguy #outreach

I was lucky enough to get to meet Waddles the rescue piglet last week who has since v v v sadly lost her life due to sudden illness. She died free, exploring the woods at her will at a sanctuary near Huddersfield called @pigsinthewood. She was able to follow visitors to the sanctuary around for treats and belly rubs (which she did to us the whole time we were there) and had an incredible personality for such a little thing. All animals deserve to die in peace, knowing freedom & not suffering. I cannot express how guilty i feel when thinking about the suffering I caused when buying meat and dairy products and the animals lives that ended for my selfish pleasure. Rest in peace little Waddles, you'll be missed. (Also adopt the other amazing pigs there to help support their care of wonderful animals such as these) #vegan #veganactivism #animalrightsactivism #animalliberation #livevegan #friendsnotfood #plantsnotpals #plantbased

Since my dearest Cracker died I have been struggling to keep my followers up. I’m not growing anymore. I’m losing followers. I do not care about numbers. I care about interacting with the dear furriends I have made. So there is something I want to address. I now feel comfortable enough to do. Even if it will cost me even more followers. The last couple of days we (in the Netherlands) have been horrified with images of slaughterhouses. Pigs being boiled alive. Skinned alive. Horrendously tortured. I cannot wrap my head around it why we love and treasure one animal and murder the other. The animals we eat are no longer living beings to us. They have become products. We have been dissociated from the reality. Most of us can agree that, now seeing, the torture of these living beings is far from normal or okay. But is it even fine to murder them? Does humane killing exist? Is killing ever humane? All these animals want to live. They need love just like us. They care for their baby’s just like us. Can you justify killing an animal for just a couple minutes of “pleasure”? When you devour your sausage, do you think of what you are eating? That it had a life, a will to live, that it loved and that it had it’s own character? If you don’t want to eat your beloved cat, don’t eat a pig, chicken or cow. There is no difference. I am not a know it all vegan. I am not perfect. I don’t feel better then you because I’m vegan. Because I don’t feel better then others, I don’t pay people to kill animals for me. Because I don’t feel better than an animal, I don’t eat them. Nowadays you don’t have an excuse anymore to eat vegan. It is not difficult. It is not extra expensive. It is not compromising on your joy of food and eating. It is a choice. A choice to show that you are an intelligent, humane, loving and empathetic being. Please stop eating friends and go vegan! #bunny #hollandlopbunny #hollandlopsofinstagram #hollandloprabbits #rabbit #rabbitsofinstagram #bunnystagram #bunnysofinstagram #bunnylove #petsofinstagram #animallover #animallovers #minilop #minilopsofinstagram #bunnyvideo #cutenessoverload #teddywidder #vegan #govegan #plantbased #plantpower #veganactivism #crueltyfree #

@Regrann from @belinda_vegan - SCIENTIFIC FACT: FISH FEEL PAIN! Repost from @animalequality ・・・ Whether wild caught or farmed, expoiting fish for food is cruel and is having devastating impacts on our planet. The intense accumulation of waste from fish farms can pollute the local marine environment and spread disease, and antibiotics given to farmed fish harm nearby seas and oceans. According to the National Fisheries Research Center, “aquaculture” has contributed to 68 percent of fish extinctions worldwide. The production and consumption of fish causes great suffering to fish and other animals, harms human health, threatens aquatic biodiversity, and wastes natural resources. Please leave fish out of your diet. 🐟 🐟 🐟 . .EMBRACE VEGANISM! 🍃 www.vegankit.com . #fishfreefriday #fishlessfriday #ditchfish #animalcruelty #savetheanimals #climatechange #pollution #savetheplanet #fish #fishing #fishfarming #wildcaught #helpanimals #helptheplanet #factoryfarming #seafood #animalabuse #loveallanimals #animalequality #foodgasm #pescatarian #foodporn #veganactivism
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified processed meat as a carcinogen, something that causes cancer. And it has classified red meat as a probable carcinogen, something that probably causes cancer. IARC is the cancer agency of the World Health Organization. _ But a new study suggests that Eating Meat May Increase Risk of Dying From 9 Different Diseases. _ The health risks associated with eating meat are so bad that even the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that eating red meat increases one’s risk of several types of cancer and an organization is fighting to have processed meats removed from the school lunch programs in California. Still need more reasons to cut out meat? Well, a new revealed that eating red meat may increase your risk of dying from nine different diseases – yikes! _ The world's largest organization of food and nutrition professionals has announced its position on plant-based diets - and deemed them 'appropriate for all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, adolescence, older adulthood, and for athletes'. _ The world's largest organization of food and nutrition professionals has announced its position on plant-based diets - and deemed them 'appropriate for all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, adolescence, older adulthood, and for athletes'.

So as part of his job, Paolo visits a lot of homes and meets new people regularly. Being the delightfully British country we are, he gets offered copious cups of tea on a daily basis. This inevitably leads to a conversation about Veganism as he is yet to find a house with plant based alternatives to cows milk. We had some cards made for anyone who seems genuinely interested. These are some sources which helped us on our way. Whether you're curious for the animals, your health or the environment. I've had to leave out so many but I figured if these resonate with someone then they will find the others themselves. The first card Paolo gave was to one of the electricians doing the rewire on our house...

I wish for people to focus less on the things that divide us and more on the things that unite us, to remember that all living beings just want to live their lives in peace. We all occupy this planet together and the suffering of one hurts all. . . #keepfamiliestogether #familiesbelongtogether
Thank you @strongveganwoman for having me this weekend and for helping to celebrate the strong vegan women that make up the vegan movement and who work tirelessly to advocate for animals. I hope all the women reading this know how powerful they are. By being empowered we can empower others 💪🏼 #london #londonvegans
@vanswarpedtour is tomorrow!!! We're giving away FREE @herbivoreclothing stickers for anyone who #bravethecage and signs our petition so don't forget to stop by our booth for this awesome gift!
SCIENTIFIC FACT: FISH FEEL PAIN! Repost from @animalequality ・・・ Whether wild caught or farmed, expoiting fish for food is cruel and is having devastating impacts on our planet. The intense accumulation of waste from fish farms can pollute the local marine environment and spread disease, and antibiotics given to farmed fish harm nearby seas and oceans. According to the National Fisheries Research Center, “aquaculture” has contributed to 68 percent of fish extinctions worldwide. The production and consumption of fish causes great suffering to fish and other animals, harms human health, threatens aquatic biodiversity, and wastes natural resources. Please leave fish out of your diet. 🐟 🐟 🐟 . .EMBRACE VEGANISM! 🍃 www.vegankit.com . #fishfreefriday #fishlessfriday #ditchfish #animalcruelty #savetheanimals #climatechange #pollution #savetheplanet #fish #fishing #fishfarming #wildcaught #helpanimals #helptheplanet #factoryfarming #seafood #animalabuse #loveallanimals #animalequality #foodgasm #pescatarian #foodporn #veganactivism

If you want to protest the meat industry than storm the industrial farms and the corporate buildings. Liberate and recruit the farm workers. (Repost @floridian_leftist ) #environmentalism #classism #activism #veganactivism
- Saying sorry and goodbye to innocent animals about to be slaughtered is the hardest thing. - Every chicken we bare witness to we see Hollie and Ivy looking back at us. - Knowing that you can’t save their lives and that their fate is out of your hands never gets easier. - Every emotion runs through you in that moment but we must find strength to continue. - It can be a struggle to continue in our plight for animal liberation but our struggle will never be as hard as the 56 billion land animals that endure suffering and are murdered every year. - Do you eat chicken? Next time you see these trucks on the motorway be mindful and have a look at the thousands of scared faces heading to be slaughtered for your tastebuds. - #livevegan

Full video: https://youtu.be/XKB-CN8tu0A (another link in my bio) Thanks to Ukrainian activists, Olexiy Svyatogor -- who killed thousands of dogs in Ukraine, as well as promotes "doghunting" on national TV and threatens animal rights activists with death -- is currently under arrest. The judge ruled for Svyatogor to remain in prison for 30 days, during the court's investigation -- as a security measure. The doghunter filed for the appeal, hiring a likeminded lawyer. Svyatogor's lawyer is also a former head of the prison where Olexiy's now located; he has numerous connections within the system. To battle corruption, we need international resonance. This case will mark Ukraine's European standards (or lack of thereof) and the country's progress in fighting corruption. Please, share the full video (YT link here, FB in my bio) and help Ukraine end a violent massacre of street animals 🙏🏻 I would be also beyond grateful for any media or celebrities/high following connections to spread the message. Feel free to message me and tag anyone who might want to help ❤️Only international pressure will help us stop thousands of deaths.
What Does Your Love for Cheese Have To Do With Dying Coral Reefs? _ Agricultural Runoff There are a variety of runoff pollutants that threaten coral reefs. These include oil, industrial waste and untreated sewage that can poison the diverse species living in a coral community. Animal agriculture also provides coral reefs with a number of pollutants that cause stress and eventual death to both coral polyps and the zooxanthellae they rely on.First, animal agriculture can cause increased nutrient inputs in the form of excess nitrogen and phosphorous into the water column. This encourages algal growth which eventually eats up oxygen and blocks out sunlight. Less oxygen is available to the variety of reef animals that need it, and organisms like zooxanthellae don’t get enough light to photosynthesize. The system becomes overloaded by only a few organisms whose populations have gone rogue, and a healthy and diverse coral reef community struggles to exist. Sedimentation is yet another harmful impact that the animal agricultural system has on coral reefs, and produces similar results as nutrient overloads. Soil often erodes away from agricultural practices that are not maintained sustainably. It can block out sunlight, similar to excess algal growth, and make it difficult for anything in the coral reef needing photosynthesis to survive. Sediments also have the potential to carry pollutants attached their structure, smothering corals in a blanket of toxic sludge. Finally, animal agriculture also sends a great deal of pollutants downstream, eventually coming into contact with any nearby coral reefs. To raise animals, feed crops are needed which can often rely on a great deal of herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers. And animals such as cows and chickens may be given antibiotics and growth hormones to maintain their health and size before slaughter. All of these extra chemicals often end up, to some degree, washing into a local waterway and potentially into a marine environment where they cause stress to coral communities, impacting early growth stages and causing coral bleaching. _ For the animals, the ocean, our planet oh, and your health embrace veganism! 🍃 _

Repost from @r.e.s.c.u.e ・・・ The Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e ) is the story about how warriors who once feared elephants have become their protectors. All men working at Reteti were at some point warriors or are currently warriors, It’s a tribal rite of passage that every young man becomes a warrior. What’s happening here at Reteti, without fanfare, is nothing less than the beginnings of a transformation in the way Samburus relate to wild animals they have long feared. This oasis where orphans grow up, learning to be wild so that one day they can rejoin their herds, is as much about the people as it is about elephants. You can be a part of Reteti and join us in protecting wildlife. You might even win a trip to see us. For $10 contribution in support of Reteti, you will be entered for a chance to win a trip here, another trip to see Dave Matthews in concert and take home a @rockbridgeguitar that features a custom inlay of an elephant hand-drawn by Dave and receive a @nikonusa D7500 18-300mm VR Lens Kit with @prizeo (Link in profile). Not only will you be helping care for orphaned baby elephants and strengthening community ties, you’ll also have a chance to win a life-changing trip to see the sanctuary in person. The first $10,000 in funds raised will be generously matched by Elephant Gems (@elephantgems ). Reteti operates in partnership with Conservation International (@conservationorg ) who provide critical operational support and work to scale the Reteti community-centered model to create even bigger, lasting impacts worldwide.

Repost from @vomad.life ・・・ "If beef is your idea of real food for real people, you'd better live real close to a real good hospital." - Dr Neal Barnard of the @physicianscommittee 🙌 - A review of large-scale studies involving more than 1.5 million people found all-cause mortality is higher for those who eat meat, particularly red or processed meat, on a daily basis. Conducted by physicians from Mayo Clinic in Arizona, "Is Meat Killing Us?" was published in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association. - While findings for U.S. and European populations differed somewhat, the data found the steepest rise in mortality at the smallest increases of intake of total red meat. That 2014 study followed more than one million people over 5.5 to 28 years and considered the association of processed meat (such as bacon, sausage, salami, hot dogs and ham), as well as unprocessed red meat (including uncured, unsalted beef, pork, lamb or game). - Further, a 2003 review of more than 500,000 participants found a decreased risk of 25 percent to nearly 50 percent of all-cause mortality for very low meat intake compared with higher meat intake. - SRC: American Osteopathic Association. "Meat consumption raises mortality rates, analysis of more than 1. 5 million people finds: Death rates higher when red and processed meats are eaten daily, according to reviewers." ScienceDaily.

Repost from @vomad.life ・・・ Laws are always lagging behind moral progress. It almost seems that, a lot of the time, laws actually hinder moral progress of society. 🤷‍♂️ - Just because it is illegal to tell the truth does not make it moral to be unnecessarily deceptive. Just because it was once legal to own slaves, did not make it moral to exploit others then, and wouldn't now if it was re-legalised. Just because it was temporarily legal to kill Jews et all did not make it moral. And just because it's legal to kill pigs, chickens, cows, turkeys, goats, fish and other animals unnecessarily does not make it morally acceptable to do so. - That is not a comparison of the morality of these things, just an example of the often total opposition of what is moral and what is legal. - Being transparent is morally superior to practicing deception. Treating all people equally is morally superior to being racist. And veganism IS morally superior to being speciesist. - That doesn't mean we are objectively better people or the lives of vegans are inherently worth more than carnists - it just means on a day to day basis, our behaviour IS ethically superior.

#Repost from @animals.activist by @quicksave.app ・・・ Gary Yourofsky: “By sheer numbers alone, humans collectively have never suffered like the animals have. ⤵ In the last 12 months alone, 60 billion land animals and 90 billion marine animals were killed by the meat, dairy and egg industries worldwide. Billions more are enslaved and killed by hunters, the vivisection industry, circuses, zoos, rodeos and the clothing conglomerates. When the numbers of animal murders that humans have committed over the last 1,000-12,000 years are added to this equation, I am pretty sure that we run out of numbers. We can’t count that high. ⤵ So it’s true that technologically, humans are the most brilliant species that has ever existed, but ethically, we are on par with parasites, for we use technology and our capabilities to harm others. Man is responsible for the greatest species extinction ever, for polluting rivers and for deforestation − and our technological superiority is exactly what made us believe we’re superior to other animals and they’re worthless. ⤵ This is ridiculous, not only because animals are conscious beings, equal to us in their capacity to feel and suffer, but because the animals don’t need technology to survive. We do. There’s never been any reason for the animal kingdom to advance technologically. The human species would collapse without air conditioning, heat, transportation, refrigeration, etc.” _ #natgeo #paris #animals #pets #foodgasm #foodporn #jewish #holocaust #fuckno #wtf #viral #viralvideo #think #awareness #schooled #animallover #nature #history #vegan #veganactivism #why #carepackage #care #whisper #love #respect #justuie #discrimination #vegan #vegansofig
When we think of language we think of human verbal communication. But in this we are missing a world of communication that happens beyond speech and between species. . Look into an animal’s eyes and see their story, watch as they express their inner world and describe their emotions. Let your heart connect with theirs and your souls speak lovingly to one other. . Look into the eyes of an animal encased in suffering. You cannot tell me their turmoil isn’t communicated. Their agony not portrayed through their soulful eyes. Their tears speak a thousand words, their dread shown through every glance. Fear pouring from the depths of them. . Look upon the suffering of animals not as a bystander but as someone who sees their truth. Witnesses their reality. As someone who notices them for who they are and what they see. Let them show you images as through their eyes. Now act as though you and they are one. Because in this communication grows empathy and in this space you are not separate. . “An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.” – Martin Buber
Homemade strawberry pierogies 🍓 - For the dough 2 cups gluten free flour, 1/2 cup warm water, 1/4 cup avocado oil and 1 tsp salt Mix all tigether and let the dough sit in a med bowl (dont overwork) for about 30 min covered with towel. Dough should be firm but with slight stickiness. The filling was fresh chopped strawberries with a little coconut sugar and tapioca starch. (I fresh chopped my berries but if you use a chopper appliance make sure you use a strainer to drain the pain liquids out so it's not runny in the dough) Cut 3" cut outs of dough, add a little amount if thhe strawberries and pinch the ends or use a fork (ensure they won't open).... at this point you can either boil right away or freeze individually for future delciisouness....Boil in hot water with a pinch of salt and a little avocado oil till floats (about 1 min), don't overfill the pot or else they can stick than pan sear and you have some fresh delicious homemade pierogies. I topped mine with coconut whip and cinnamon 😍 #vegan #govegan #veganactivism #veganlife #vegans #drsebi #straweberries #veganfood #plantbased #whatthehealth   #herbalmedicine #paleo #rawvegan #vegetarian #veganrecipes #cowspiracy #vegansofinstagram #alkalinevegan #organic   #veganism #veganfoodshare #naturalremedies #veganlife #drsebian #veganrecipes #health #nutrition #whatveganseat #vegansofig #vegano #dairyfree
