To vegan or not to vegan?

hearrubyroar:

After feeling more and more uncomfortable eating meat over the years I have decided to become a vegetarian. I ordered a lovely pack from PETA full of horrifying stories and yummy vegan recipes (get yours here) but my question is now – to vegan or not to vegan? I like the idea of eating no…

Hey! Congrats on going vegetarian! It’s awesome that you’ve been feeling the way you have and that you’ve taken the first step, couldn’t encourage you more. As for your question, in my experience going vegan was the logical extension of vegetarianism, and the best thing I’ve ever done.

Personally, cheese was the last thing I gave up, so I know how tough it can be with that product specifically. However, I kept reminding myself where cheese and eggs come from, and who has to suffer so these are available.

Here is just one post about what happens in the egg and dairy industry. Also, here is one of the best videos I’ve seen about the benefits of a plant-based (vegan) diet.

Hope that helps!

edit: also, there’s heaps and heaps of vegan cheeses. Just check them out on google. Ranging from melting chess, blue cheeses, cheddar and more. Here are two recipes that I make at least once a week too; big comfy sweet potato and san choy bau.

so let me get this straight. anti-choicers took $500,000 dollars worth of pennies and sealed them in a glass case as a “memorial” to “victims” of abortion. i’m going to say that again. these people have locked away $500,000 dollars as a “tribute” to dead blobs of cells instead of donating that money to actual living breathing children who don’t have basic necessities or homes.

anti-choicers are incredible

This is the Memorial to the Missing and contains over 50,000,000 pennies to represent the lives of each American child abandoned to abortion by a society and a culture that has embraced their destruction. We must prevent the need to add to this memorial. Take a stand. Get involved.
 ”How we treat the least of us defines us.”

"should I use this $500k to help struggling parents and pregnant people or should I put it in a glass box"


Wow.

I hate the paleo diet so much. Fuck hunting. Fuck “game” meat. Murder isn’t a fucking game.

It’s always amazing when you someone sees a video of the cruelty at factory farms and they’re so confused.

"But … wait … isn’t that animal cruelty? Isn’t that illegal? So can’t you just bring in video footage as proof and get these places shut down?"

and it’s just like

ag-gag laws exist now can you please just go vegan

Anonymous asked: For the anon about the meat industry jobs: there are so many other professions that give thousands of people jobs, but that doesn't make them good jobs. No one ever says "hey, let's buy cocaine because it supports all the people who make a living off of it."
