I'm still vegan because I don't want to live in a world where it's normal to rape, torture or kill animals.. I'm still vegan to be the example that humans don't need animal products to live.. I'm still vegan because I'm here to share the world with all living beings.. I'm still vegan because animals are innocent, beautiful beings and if I can love my cat and not want to eat him, how can I justify eating another.. 💛
COOKING CLASSES 👩🏻🍳Get empowered in the kitchen! I've posted 5 new cooking classes on veganaruba.com -read the descriptions and choose the one that's right for you. RSVP by sending me an email or DM. See you in the kitchen! #veganaruba
I was so surprised to see an all vegan cafe in my university's cafeteria when I came back from the winter holiday. Must mean there's a lot of demand for vegan food, which is always great to see!
Pictured above are two sausage rolls in my stainless steel portable tin, which I carry around in my bag in case I ever pick up anything on-the-go. Sausage rolls are only £1.50 a piece, and they're hella good, so I have a feeling I'm going to be snacking on these whenever I have a full day of classes 😋
What you see in this video is how pigs are brought to slaughter everywhere around the world. And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
They were born into filth, and promptly got their tails docked and their teeth clipped. They were separated from their mothers, raised in confinement, and the only thing awaited them after that truck ride - that was the first and last time they ever saw sunlight - was a knife to slit their throat.
So much of what happens to pigs in the industry would be considered outrageous if done to dogs. And while yes, societally we learn that well “they’re just pigs”, does that make them any less sentient? Any less individuals who have emotions, personalities and a desire to live?
We consume food more than anything else, and yet, we spend so little time thinking about and educating ourselves on where it comes from.
For vast majority of my life, I didn’t even consider for a second that most the food I ate came from animals, and much less what kind of lives those animals lived.
So my invitation is, don’t take my word for anything but do your own research.
If you’d like a recommendation, a great place to start is the free film Dominion that you can watch on watchdominion.com , which gives a thorough behind the scenes look at the animal agriculture industry and other industries that use animals.
Ignorance is not bliss.

Repost : Paws & Claws Animal Clinic, South Carolina.
Tonight we received a call we never thought we would get. A family found their recently adopted 5 month old puppy Loca on their back porch shot in the head with an arrow. They rushed the puppy to our clinic. The arrow miraculously missed her brain, her esophagus and barely missed her spine! She is the luckiest unlucky girl in the world. We removed the arrow. Loca is stable. This type of cruelty HAS TO STOP!!!! Loca was shot in the Calhoun, South Carolina area. Anyone with any information contact the Calhoun Police Department at (803)874-2741.
Thank you for saving beautiful Loca🙏❤
A precious life taken way to soon 🐮they were killed on 21/1/19. Their body will be hanging up right now. You couldn’t make much more of a horror movie if you tried, yet this is totally legal?
Due to inclement weather, we have rescheduled to Wednesday, January 30th and have shortened the vigil to an hour to account for frigid temperatures.
Our hearts ache for the pigs suffering on transport trucks across our state and country in these conditions.
Peace, plants, cats 💚🐱🌿 Tag someone who can relate! 👇
I'm all about plants these days but I am also busy with some exciting collaborations so here is a repost of one of my older drawings - cats are always relevant 😊
hi friends! with the events of last week, my page has absolutely exploded! thank you endlessly for all of your support and kind words, I definitely felt all of your love! 🥰
there are about a thousand more of you here than there were just a week ago, so I thought I’d introduce myself to all of the newcomers! thank you for being here! 🖤
my name is joy wilde, my husband (@acewilde
) and I live in a suburb of des moines, iowa (in the middle of the US) I’m almost 30 years old, and I work as a field educator for a non-profit.
* I worked as a disney princess for 8 years (before all of my tattoos 😋)
* 98% of my closet is black
* I studied theatre: performance in college! 🎭
* I’ve been vegan for 4 years this month.
ace and I helped start @iowafarmsanctuary
, and we serve on the board of directors. we also run the sanctuary’s social media presence. we actually live an hour and a half from IFS, so we mostly work remotely, but we try to visit at least once a week. 🐮
last year, I became an organizer for @desmoinesanimalsave
, after attending vigils for over a year. 🐷 the save movement is important to me, because I see how it inspires people to get active for other animals. just a couple weeks ago, I became an organizer for our local chapter of @anonymousforthevoiceless.
my current goal in life is to inspire as many people to decide to live vegan as I possibly can, and also to empower current vegans to become activists! please reach out if you ever have questions or need advice. I am here to help! 🌱
to make sure you keep seeing my posts, comment below! how did we meet or how did you happen upon my page? I wanna know!

ITA| La whole food plant-based diet, ovvero una dieta vegana basata su cibi interi e non processati riesce a fare dimagrire pur mangiando a sazietà.
Ma come è possibile? 2 modi:
1- Alimenti a bassa densità energetica o densità calorica. Si è visto infatti che l'uomo tende a mangiare sempre lo stessa quantità di cibo in peso. Se ci si sazia con 1Kg di cibo, si tende a mangiare sempre intorno a 1Kg. Ora, tutti i cibi hanno un contenuto calorico diverso a parità di peso. Guardate la figura 3, si possono raggiungere 500 kcalorie con tantissime verdure che riempiono lo stomaco e quindi ci saziano o con pochissimo formaggio, carne e olio che non riempiono lo stomaco e quindi ci portano a mangiare di più.
Se guardate l'immagine successiva c'è un grafico con tutti gli alimenti e la loro densità calorica. Tutti gli alimenti in verde appartengono a una dieta vegana, viene da sé che quindi si può anche mangiare fino a sazietà, ma le calorie ingerite saranno molte meno del solito.
Questo è stato provato in un grande studio (fig.5) e si è visto come chi mangiava vegano senza limitazioni e senza ulteriore attività fisica perdeva più peso di chi seguiva una dieta con restringimento calorico!
2-Batteri intestinali buoni. Avere dei buoni batteri intestinali aiuta a ridurre i picchi glicemici e la velocità di svuotamento dello stomaco. Come? Quando nutriamo la flora intestinale con fibre e legumi i batteri cominciano a produrre molecole come il Propionato. Questa molecola raggiunge poi l'ipotalamo e fa produrre al nostro cervello molecole come il PYY che dicono allo stomaco di svuotarsi lentamente e ciò diminuisce il senso di fame. L'ultima figura è interessantissima. Due gruppi di persone, stesse calorie, ma uno mangia legumi l'altro no. Chi mangia legumi ha un picco glicemico ridotto. Ok niente sorprese qui. Al secondo pasto però i due gruppi mangiano le stesse cose e il gruppo dei legumi ha comunque un picco glicemico più basso!! Perché? Perché il primo pasto nel frattempo era arrivato nell'intestino e la flora aveva cominciato a produrre Propionato!
Provare per credere!
“You’ll never be someone who everyone will like. And honestly I think if you are, maybe you’re a bit bland.” - @msevylynch
Check out this interview 👆 if you have a chance. I love hearing people who are split wide open express themselves. Luna Lovegood has always been one of my favorite HP characters because she’s strange and quirky and quite unapologetic about it. I thought Evanna Lynch brought Luna to life perfectly in the movies, and having heard her on @chickpeepspod
and several other interviews now, it’s clear she’s also just a lovely and introspective person figuring out who she is and what she stands for, which I think most everyone can relate to.
There is a people-pleaser who lives inside of me that’s in constant battle with my true unconventional weirdo self and the above quote is a helpful reminder. I’ve noticed that empathy is actually incredibly unhelpful for working through this particular aspect of my personality. Understanding how others feel about something *doesn’t* mean you have to cater to that, but to choose yourself also means having to learn to live with feeling their judgment/disappointment/hurt. Any fellow (recovering or current) people-pleasers out there? 😬🙋🏽♀️
I’ve only recently become aware of the phrase virtue signaling. It is the “public expression of opinions that show one's own good character or moral correctness.” It’s usually used in a negative light, describing one that speaks positively solely motivated by praise and affirmation. Though a little conflicted about the term at first, it certainly has some salient examples pertaining to Veganism and Carnism:
1. Calling yourself an animal lover because you have a pet, while you contribute to the systematic exploitation and death of billions of animals annually.
2. Denouncing trophy hunters or animal exploitation at SeaWorld for killing or abusing a few “exotic” animals while you kill animals regularly to eat them.
3. Celebrating environmentalism while conveniently ignoring one of the most detrimental contributors to plastic pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, etc.

לצערנו בחודש האחרון אין כמעט בכלל מתנדבים בכלל,
מה שאומר שאנוכי ובן זוגי עושים משמרות יום ולילה,
בשביל להיות צמודים אליהם בכל שעה אפשרית.
זו אינה עבודה לשני אנשים,
אנו מבינים שקר בחוץ
ויש פחות חשק לצאת מהבית,
אבל בעלי החיים גם עוברים חורף קר,
והם זקוקים ליחס חם וצמוד 24 שעות ביממה.
הם לא היו שורדים את החורף הזה בחוץ,
הם הוצלו בזכותכם,
אסור לנו לשכוח אותם בחורף,
הם צריכים הגנה ושמירה כל רגע ובכל עונה.
להצטרפות למערך המתנדבים שלנו:
https://www.kerenorfarm.com/volunteer * בנוסף אנו מחפשים אחראי/ת מתנדבים נוסף/ת-
ניתן לעבוד מהבית, עבודה טלפונית בעיקר. * אחראי אימוצים-
לקבל פניות בנוגע לאימוצים, לערוך שיחות תיאום ציפיות, ולתאם מפגש לרלוונטיים לאימוץ.
שיהיה חורף חם לכולם
תודה ❤️ #volunteer #volunteering

Did you know, animal ingredients can sneak into our lives through the most innocent crockery! The ones that indicate they are ‘bone china’ actually contain bones from animals (image 1).
How is bone china crockery produced?
Animal bones obtained from slaughterhouses are first processed to remove the flesh and glue. The bones are then heated at very high temperatures (1100c to 1250c) until they burn to ash. This ash is then combined with water and clay to produce a slurry. This slurry is fashioned into cups, saucers, plates, teapots, bowls of various shapes and sizes…
The alternative? Well, so many! Steel, Glass, Opal Glass (image 2), Earthenware, Ceramic to name some!
👍TIP: Crockery made from ‘bone china’ is easily identifiable from their greater translucence and lightness. Finer the bone china, higher is the content of dead animal bones.

“Cage-free” farm EXPOSED — and the whistleblowers charged $330,000 😡
😑😑😑😑The annual Safari Club International (SCI) convention was held this month and our undercover investigation exposed once again the true nature of the trophy hunting industry. Hundreds of opportunities to hunt rare and iconic animals were offered. Vendors at the SCI convention even peddled prohibited wildlife products that likely violated Nevada’s wildlife trafficking law. Multiple vendors also offered the opportunity for captive-bred lion hunts, despite SCI’s own policy to prohibit such unethical hunting practice.
SCI and trophy hunters like to tout their conservation creed, but in reality, when financial profit is involved, conservation law and hunting ethics are thrown out of the window. 😡😡😡
Star was off camera trying to steal Thomas’s grapes from one of our volunteers then tried to walk in front of the camera like “nothing to see here just going for a walk” 😳😂 our turkey hens take snacks VERY seriously and they are not easily tricked so it’s sometimes difficult to give Thomas his medicine hidden in grapes 🍇
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD!!
No comemos animales por salud
"La Asociación Americana de Dietética (ADA, ahora AND), además de la ONU, los Departamentos de Agricultura y Salud de EEUU, The British Medical Association, la Asociacion Española de Dietistas y Nutricionistas, The Canadian medical Association, la Sociedad Argentina de Nutrición, The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (y un largo etcétera) sostienen que las dietas vegetarianas adecuadamente planificadas, incluidas las dietas totalmente vegetarianas o veganas son saludables, nutricionalmente adecuadas, y pueden proporcionar beneficios para la salud en la prevención y en el tratamiento de ciertas enfermedades.
Las dietas vegetarianas bien planificadas son apropiadas para todas las etapas del ciclo vital, incluyendo el embarazo, la lactancia, la infancia, la niñez y la adolescencia, así como para deportistas.
En relación con los nutrientes clave para las personas vegetarianas como son la proteína, los ácidos grasos omega-3, el hierro, el zinc, el yodo, el calcio y las vitaminas D y B-12 (de origen bacteriano, que no animal), una dieta vegetariana puede satisfacer las ingestas recomendadas actuales para todos estos nutrientes.
Los resultados de una revisión basada en la evidencia indicaron que una dieta vegetariana está asociada con un menor riesgo de muerte por cardiopatía isquémica. Las personas vegetarianas también parecen tener niveles más bajos de colesterol, de lipoproteínas de baja densidad (LDL), una presión arterial más baja, y tasas más bajas de hipertensión y diabetes tipo 2 que la población no vegetariana".
We are not fighting for the impossible.
We are just accelerating the inevitable.
We are Anonymous.
We are vegan.

WOULD YOU EAT DOG MEAT???
Is eating cow more ethical than eating dog? You probably say yes, don’t you? “Cause dogs are pets“ But who defines it? I tell you who : The western world. The eastern cultures like Chinese, Taiwan, Korean or Vietnamese have no problem with serving dog.
Most of the people couldn’t eat dog meat because they know that dogs are smart and suffer. They have feelings. The problem is: cows, pigs and all the other earthlings, too
What do you think?👇Why are we outraged about eating dog, but not bacon?
for the amazing food!

Jsem vegan protože chci spravedlnost pro každého bez rozdílu barvy pleti, rasy, pohlaví, věku, inteligence, náboženské odlišnosti, sexuální orientace, bez rozdílu typů kůže, chlupů a tvarů hlavy či celého těla. Jsem vegan protože si můžu vybrat, že nebudu ubližovat slabšímu. Jsem vegan protože mohu být silný ne jenom fyzicky, ale především morálně. Jsem vegan protože to považuji za morální povinnost každého, kdo věří v dobro.
