Petition: Pigs Want Out

For those who still eat meat it should become more and more important to know where their food comes from. And for those who no longer support this violence against innocent creatures it is still a…

GR:  It is important to teach children that cruelty to animals is wrong. We have laws for adults who did not receive the lesson.  The laws protecting animals are not as severe as the ones that punish child abusers, but they are there and they should be enforced. PETA is handling the petition.

My Favorite [vegan] Breakfast

Vegan Summertime Breakfast

Vegan Summertime Breakfast

This is my favorite breakfast to eat on the weekends during the warmer months.

Believe it or not, this meal will hold me for hours on end.  I ate this yesterday morning before going out to do yard work and I did not have another meal until 7:30 PM.

If you have not tried So-Delicious *yogurt* and you feel as though you could never give up your *Greek* Yogurt — I encourage you to try So-Delicious. There is no soy  – for those of you who fear soy. (Why I have no idea — but whatevs!).

Ditch the dairy people and get with a new way of eating that doesn’t cause or support animal suffering.

Ingredients:

  • Base: So Delicious [vegan] plain *yogurt* (I buy the plain because I find the vanilla is too sweet.)
  • 1 tsp of Maca Powder sprinkled on top of yogurt
  • 3-4 medium size farmer’s market strawberries – sliced
  • 1/3 cup Blueberries (from Maine)
  • 1 Sliced organic Banana
  • 1/4 cup organic Walnuts

Mix and eat.

YUM!

IMAGINE: An Animal Bill Of Rights

FUR OUT THE CLOSET:

I recently came across this campaign and as I am a just a vegan and not an abolitionist vegan I happily participated(if you have no idea what I am talking about, please see the deabate @ http://emynow.wordpress.com/2014/04/29/a-debate-in-animal-advocacy-to-be-or-not-to-be-an-abolitionist/).

The message conveyed in this Animal Legal Defense Fund action can only be seen as encouraging.We live in a world where human rights are hard to monitor, so a Bill of Rights for nonhuman animals would be a phenomenon of note.

I am proud to say that South Africa has a Constitution that includes a Bill of Rights (for humans) as follows:

Bill of Rights

Chapter 2Bill of rights (ss 7-39)
  1. Rights
    1. This Bill of Rights is a cornerstone of democracy in South Africa. It enshrines the rights of all people in our country and affirms the democratic values…

Why are vegetarians so annoying?

Why are vegetarians so annoying?

Center for Advanced Hindsight

vegetarian2 (1)When I meet someone new, I’m pretty open in the first “getting to know you” conversations. I’ll freely offer up information about my career, hobbies, reality TV preferences, and even my sexuality. But there is one topic I avoid discussing for as long as I can get away with — I’m vegan.

It might happen when I turn down a bite of birthday cake for the third time or have trouble mustering interest in going to a restaurant whose sole vegan option is a deflated pile of aging lettuce, but eventually, it comes out. If I’m lucky, reactions are something like, “You’re missing out on so much!” or, “Good for you, but I could never give up bacon.” Other times, though, their face darkens and the inquisition begins: Why are you doing that? Aren’t you worried about getting enough protein? If I paid you twenty dollars, would you eat this…

Happy World Oceans Day!

Happy World Oceans Day!

Bailey Boat Cat

Furiends it’s a special day! A day to celebrate our beautiful oceans and make a pledge to protect them! I’m sticking with the same pledge I made last year because there’s still plenty of room for for the humans and I to improve and I feel very passionately about it.

I’d also like to raise awareness about the issues surrounding plastics in the ocean throughout the year, so stay tuned for that. I found a great infographic by oneworldoneocean.org which I’m sure you’ll all agree is really an eye opener.

I’ve got so many furiends in the ocean and if we all speak up a little and work together to make a change for good, I’m sure we can help them to live happily and healthily.
