you're plant based not vegan though right? because it's for health? not animal?

no, i’m vegan. i chose veganism for my health. but aside from diet, i use cruelty free products and don’t wear wool/silk/animal products because i chose the vegan lifestyle, i have been since january 1st, 2014 :) going on 10 months, best decision of my life. i am so much healthier and happier. idk how other people define themselves, but this is how i do it. i’m vegan and i follow all the things people do in a vegan lifestyle, what brought me to lifestyle is different than others who came to this for morals/ethics/animal rights but i’m still vegan.

Eating animals is a huge contributor to world hunger. It takes 16 pounds of grain to produce one pound of beef, and only one pound of grain to produce one pound of bread. “By cycling our grain through livestock and into beef, we end up with only 6 percent as much good available to feed human beings as we would have if we ate the grain directly.” #govegan

This is Maya, daughter of @dehappy5_mama I am happy to share her amazing testimony from following a raw vegan diet. “After struggling with terrible eczema and allergies for most of her life, my 8 years old daughter recovered completely within only 5 months on high carb raw vegan diet. She has a condition called leaky gut caused by candida overgrowth that she had since born. Years of other treatments and diets gave no results and even worsen her eczema till the point shown on left photo. At the beginning there was about three months of hard detox and from then she started to heal beautifully to be a healthy and happy girl today. She still has little patches and scars, but healing slowly every day. Her two younger brothers had milder eczema and all three of them are clear skin today”.

I did the math and realized that in 11 days of school and work. I have spent 138.86 on coffee and food. That is unacceptable! Being at school or work for 13 hours a day makes it hard to eat I don’t have a fridge or a place to keep food cold.  I really have to focus and pre plan ways to eat from home. Or only have an allowance for certain amounts of money a week. I bet i’m going a crap ton of wait and i’m always exhausted. Any advice tumblr?

nature’s ultimate fast food; fruit. just grab whole fruits and put them in a hard-sided container (to prevent bruising) and it’ll be a perfect go-to cheap food. usually in cafeterias fruit is like a dollar a piece but at the grocery store is much cheaper.
rice and bean dishes doesn’t need to be refrigerated, and is super cheap
good luck!:)

Why aren’t most prolife people vegan?

Worldcrunch reports a historic change in Palitana, an Indian city, which has become the first all-vegetarian city in the world.
Behind this revolutionary change are the Jain monks who went on a hunger strike to pressure the state of Gujarat to outlaw animal slaughter in their city. The hunger strike was successful and the Gujarat government imposed a ban on animal slaughter and outlawed the sale of meat and eggs.
About 5 million people in India practice Jainism and agree with the ban.
Virat Sagar Maharaj, a Jain monk, says, “Everyone in this world - whether animal or human being or a very small creature - has all been given the right to live by God.”
As individuals, the best thing you can do to protect animals is to adopt a kind vegan lifestyle. For more information and tips for transitioning to a vegan diet, check out ChooseVeg.com.

Eat to Live by Joel Fuhrman

so i worked on finishing reading this book today. i’d started this many months ago but life got in the way of living life and i’d set it down.

pros to this book:
promotes veganism/plant based diets from a science perspective, very raw and truthful. meaning, it doesn’t discuss animals as sentient beings because it focuses on the human physiology and nutritional science, 
it really gets me to eat more greens, like it puts the importance of vegetables higher than i’ve seen on high carb diets from my internet explorations
discusses the many diseases people have (diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune disorders, etc) and how to CURE them
it written by a medical doctor who has experience and education and backs up every statement with evidence and/or logic

cons to this book:
it was written in 2006 and although that’s relatively recent, much science has progressed since then so i feel like it’s missing out on some things, but it is still highly relevant as it talks about Atkins and Bloody Type Diet etc.
it recommends 1,200 calories for women….that enough makes my blood boil
it allows animal consumption in small quantities because Dr. Fuhrman realizes food involves tradition and taste and personal preference…but like it also praises the health benefits of fish for omega 3’s…ew.

aside from my few complaints above, i can’t begin to say how awesome the positives of this book are! many more positives than i have listed above, it’s definitely a must read!!!


THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT INFORMATION
People like Brittani are the reason i am SUPER PASSIONATE ABOUT VEGANISM
