I am Mexican

hence
the Mexican Cobb Salad from Native Foods
Ancho BBQ Native Chicken (not real chicken) on a flavorful blend of tofu bacon, avocado, roasted corn, black beans, jicama and diced tomato. Served over a bed of romaine and topped with toasted pepitas and creamy jalapeño- cilantro dressing on the side. 
Fantastic food and nobody had to die* for it

People's Climate March San Diego

It was a great to see so many San Diegans
concerned about the environment yesterday
#ClimateMarchSD #ClimateMarch

And let's not forget that we can fight global warming
and climate change with our forks 3 times a day!

Animal agriculture causes 51% of greenhouse emissions.

Half of ALL the water used in the US goes to raise animals for food.

The UN has asked many times governments to promote
a diet free of meat and diary, please do your part!
It is as easy as choosing a veggie burger over a beef or chicken one!

More mindbogglingly facts about animal agriculture & our planet 

Some of the posters me & my friends made yesterday for the March!

on our climate and on the devastation of our environment,
water and air.

James Cameron is a vegan

James Cameron is probably one of my favorite vegan celebrities

"[But] I went 100 percent plant-based – vegan – two-and-a-half years ago.
I’ve got tons of energy. I’m fitter now. I’m running farther than I did
when I was in my twenties. So I’m good to go.”


James Cameron’s Vegan Diet Gives Him ‘Tons of Energy’ 

He does so much for the animals!
For the planet!
Ah, and he makes some cool movies too!

Elephant orphan SHUKURU and
Rhino orphan SOLIO,

is really something else!

It is great to received news from
The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust monthly about their lives,
Please consider fostering a rhino or elephant,
they are beautiful animals on the verge of extinction.
This trust does a wonderful work!

Runner Carl Lewis is one of the most cited example
of the success of a vegan diet for high performing athletes
read this article:

Many athletes choose a vegan diet because recovery times
between trainings are faster & easier, well,
I am not an athlete but I sure feel healthier

Check out Mac Danzing amazing video!
He is not a 'skinny hippie' kind of guy eh?

Pirates and slaves


Last week I went to the exhibition of Real Pirates
this was an exhibit based on a real pirate ship that sank in Massachusetts, the Whydah...
http://www.sdnhm.org/exhibitions/past-exhibitions/real-pirates/
I learn so much about pirates and I turn to admire them,
they robbed mostly Slave Ships,
then they set free the slaves and make them part of their crew,
most pirate ships had at least a 60% crew of slaves,
indian americans, latin people,
and they always split their gold in equal parts &
had elections to choose captains...
I learn also a lot about slavery...
the slave ships, now the resemblance between
human slavery and what we do now
with the animals was an uncanny painful part
before it was humans
now it is animals
overcrowded and abused
overcrowded and abused
entire families suffering abuse for others profit
intelligent beings being abuse for food

Activism

Today, a year ago, I went to my 1st protest,
I became an animal rights activist
at the bacon festival,
I am so thankful for all the
wonderful compassionate people
I have met in 1 year,
and all have learned about animals
and how terribly we treat them.
As we asked the people today at the bacon festival,
please just make an informed
decision for all your choices,
learn how animals are treated for food,
for clothing, for entertainment,
and make the right choice for them,
for you, and this planet,
always cause the least amount of suffering.


And remember what activism is about
Always do something
Do not follow the masses or what is convenient
Nor what you have been told to do
Search for the truth
Learn how things really work
And DO something to leave this planet
A better place than you found it!

Love animals?

Love Animals?
Then why EAT them?
Why WEAR them?
And make them play tricks?
If you really love animals,
re-think your relationship with them!
