Arbor Day

Each day, a person who eats a vegan diet saves:
30 sq ft of forested land and 20 lbs CO2 equivalent.

Thank you Tofurky for this post!

Earth Day 2016

From Vegan Street:
"This is our home: Earth Day should be 365 days a year. Cutting out animal products and meat is a massive step in reducing your ecological footprint. It is a multi-step process for most people and we are here to support you. How can you lessen your dependency on animal foods? Cutting out dairy, shifting to one plant-based day a week, stopping bringing animal foods into your home: all are significant steps to bringing your actions in alignment with your convictions about protecting the Earth and her inhabitants. Successful longtime vegans all started somewhere...where can you start? We are here for you today and every day."

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

The Beatles - Revolver

Dusting off my old records,
yeah, probably my favorite The Beatles album
Revolver... it was 1966, I wasn't born yet
but this album goes straight to my heart

Did you know?
3 out of 4 Beatles are vegetarian (vegan?)
and Paul McCartney is a long-time activist for PETA
he narrated the video Glass Walls
based on the quote:
"If slaughterhouses had glass walls,
everyone would be a vegetarian (vegan, ideally)."

Get on the right fair side of history: Don't eat or use animals.

Vegan Cheese Revolution: Miyoko's

What vegans & cool people eat: ‪#‎vegan‬ cheese.
Don't be a drag & don't drink from other species' boobs,
it is kind of weird, right?
Drink only your mom's milk not cows'.
Try Miyoko's fantastic dairy-free, cruelty-free,
calf-killing-free, drought-free, climate-change-free,
global-warming-free cheeses. ‪#‎whatveganseat‬ ‪#‎cheese‬

Vegan cheese, cashew-based cheese!

Rainy Thursday quote

“He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.”

February 2016

It is so long since I posted on my good old blog
I am all recovered from surgery
Have been working for 2 weeks now
But I surely wish I was at home resting
Reading books, being lazy...
This is just a quick come back.

A fun picture of my mom and my aunt Alicia
We went for a walk to Balboa Park this past Saturday
This February is unseasonably warm!
I know it's wrong to be this warm & dry in February
Global warming / Climate change anyone?
Still we had a lovely day.
