Think about it

It is crazy to eat animals, so thankful I got the concept, just because we were born doing "traditional" e "irrational" things (think slavery, women's rights, etc.) doesn't mean we cannot open our minds, hearts and change, please think about it and ‪#‎GoVegan‬ too.

Animal Rights Conference 2016

I am really excited to go to my very first
Animal Rights Conference in Los Angeles
this event has been going on for 35 years!
http://arconference.org/
It is "the world's largest & longest-running event
dedicated to the liberation of animals
from all forms of human exploitation and use."

Two years ago I was planning to join but
I got so sick with whooping cough.
Now I am ready!

Last night as I was packing
my suitcase, Frau Kitty, my lovely tuxedo cat
jumped on it, she wants to go to!

Frau Kitty wants to go to the Animal Rights Conference 2016
Because the Animal Rights Conference
will the one place where all animals are loved & protected
from harmful humans who don't understand that:

Animals are NOT ours to eat
are NOT ours to wear
are NOT ours to experiment on!
Animals are on this planet for their own reasons
and are created by nature, not to be enslaved
and eaten and used by humans.
More evolved humans beings such
Plato, Leonardo Da Vinci, Albert Einstein,
Leo Tolstoy, Franz Kafka, etc.
all understand all this and have been vegan or vegetarian.

Why?

Dr. Melanie Joy On Carnism
Please watch with an open mind and heart



Carnism is the belief system, or ideology, in which it's considered ethical to consume (certain) animals.
Carnism is essentially the opposite of vegetarianism or veganism.
Carnism was coined by social psychologist Dr. Melanie Joy in 2001.

Parotas

Now this is real ‪‎vegan‬ Mexican‬ food,
Parotas, my aunt brought them from Mexico,
a side of beans and fresh homemade salsa.
Parotas are seeds of a beautiful tree.
Read the information on the tree.
Also the wood is used to make beautiful furniture.
Authentic‬ Mexican food is not full of meat,
in the center and south of the country we eat a lot of plants
‪Eat a tree, eat plants, save animals & our planet!

Parotas, beans & salsa = heaven!
Parotas
Tree named Guanacaste, Caro Caro, or Elephant-ear tree
Seeds resemble an elephant ear
Seeds boiled

Parota or Guanacaste wood

Animals

Way too many dead animals, at zoos, at testing facilities, at schools, at homes, at slaughterhouses... what are we doing? We are just grabbing animals & killing them by billions!!! Aren't we supposed to be the 'evolved' species? ‪#‎heartbreaking‬

eggs = cruelty

the way eggs are 'produced' nowadays
is far from the picturesque idea of happy farms
industrial production of eggs is one of the
cruelest industries to animals...
these hens "live" for years in despicable conditions

and all for a food that makes us so sick!
a single egg contains 3 times the amount of cholesterol
a human needs, we are dying of heart attacks,
of obesity, of hypertension, diabetes, and we are
torturing billions of animals, is about time we
change the way we eat, we need to evolve!

Watch the heartbreaking Mercy for Animals investigation:
The Video the Rotten Egg Industry Doesn’t Want You to See


Every single dish you prepare with eggs can be made with
these simple replacements, take a look at this chart!

There is even Vegan Eggnog (Vegan Eierpunsch) and it is fantastic!

Veganer Eierpunsch
Even the ultimate "egg" drink has compassionate substitutes, just add rum & yum!

Balboa Park walks and my mom

My mom spent a couple of months with me in San Diego
she was taking care of me while recovering from surgery
We used to take long walks to Balboa Park.
I miss her and our morning walks!

I am very lucky that my mom is 99% vegan
she occasionally eats fish or some cheese
but since I was a girl, she always ate veggies,
salads, juices, never really liked eating animals
when she is with me is 100% vegan and when she
goes back to Autlan, she is 99% vegan
she loves soy milk, tofu, beans, and ALL fruits & veggies
I think my transition to veganism was much easier
because the way we always ate at home.
My beautiful mom
