2017 - After transitioning from a dairy guzzling carnivore to pescetarian to vegetarian, and finally to vegan in 2015, my 2 year vegan anniversary is coming up on August 29th. 🌱✌🌱
β˜†
Two years later... no more drugs, no more high blood pressure, no more high cholesterol, normal BMI, no allergies, no sinus infections, no eczema, down to 195lbs at 6'2" and loving life! 🌱πŸ’ͺ✌🀘🌱
β˜†
My only regret is that I waited until I was 50 years old to recognize the negative impacts that meat and dairy industries have on the health of human beings, the cruelty of animal agriculture, and the impacts on the environment. Wake up people! Eat More Plants! 🌱✌🌱

Just tending to the veggies πŸ…πŸŒΆβ€οΈ love love love my moms raised garden boxes by pops made! Aren't they perfect?!! It's been so inspiring to watch my parents adopt a healthier lifestyle, create their own massive garden and even have a bee house 🐝 the world in changing people! If your loved ones just don't "get it" yet, be patient. Educate them, share your passion and cook them yummy vegan food! You never know what might happen!! #spreadthelove we were chatting about this in our PLANTBASED 101 group. Because it is so hard for new vegans to address!! If you want to join this free support group, message me your email! 😘😘

This is just some sick shit. "Hey, remember those babies we saved? Now we're eating them!" Wtf...

The 18 piglets - and two sows - were saved by emergency services after a barn fire in Wiltshire, which saw 60 tonnes of hay catch fire in February earlier this year. In order to 'thank' the firefighters, the farm manager recently gave the team sausages made out of the piglets they saved.
-
In a now-deleted post from the Pewsey Fire Station Facebook page, they wrote: "Exactly six months and one day since FFF's Olsen and Richardson rescued 18 piglets from a farm in Milton we got to sample the fruits of our labour from that February night. Huge thank you to Rachel Rivers who gave them to us to sample. Highly recommended by Pewsey Fire Stations crew and if anyone is having a bank holiday weekend BBQ then check out these sausages, they are fantastic."
-
PETA said the piglets were 'no better off'. The farmer tried to defend the gift, claiming that farming is her 'way of life'. She added: "I gave those animals the best quality of life I could ever give until the time they go to slaughter and they go into the food chain. You do feel sad at the end of it... but to bring them down for [the firefighters] was a good way of saying 'thank you'."
-
The firefighters wrote: "In regard to a recent post on this page, we recognise that this has caused offence to some. We apologise for this and as such have removed the post."

Remember that time I made #vegansushi on my YT channel? Looks so "real" and it's surprisingly easy to make. What's your favorite kind of vegan sushi? I'm really into simple avocado and cucumber rolls with lots of ginger and wasabi πŸ˜‹ #vegan #recipecreator #nikkivegan

Unfortunately, this is NOT an article from The Onion. 😑😑😑 #Repost @thinkingvegan (@get_repost)

Talk about a total disconnect. Six months ago, firemen saved two sows and piglets from a barn fire. The farmers sent over the carcasses of a piglet in the form of sausages. A six month old piglet, the same age as pigs who are violently killed in the US for food.
This is only possible because animals are property. As property and not the sentient beings that they are, the farmer was sharing some of their property. When in reality they were sharing violence and a serving of cognitive dissonance.
I suppose the positive outcome from this story is that there was a backlash from the public who saw the connection. Let's hope that opening leads to liberation. A boy can dream. #animalliberation #animalrights #vegansofig #vegansofinstagram #veganism #vegan #friendsnotfood

Oh my burgers!! 😍 #nomnom from @getting.to.vegan .

OMG you guys! You must, I repeat, MUST try the Sumo Burger at the Vegan Junk Food Bar in Amsterdam. 😍 This is by far the best burger I have ever had, including those during my carnivore days. If you're in Holland, get there ASAP. Even better, let me know when you're going and I'll meet you there! πŸ˜‚ If you don't live in Holland, I suggest you plan your next vacation here, just for this burger!!! πŸ” Vegan heaven 🌱❀

Easily made vegan by subbing the mozzarella for a non-dairy alternative. -

One doesn't have to speak human languages to express their pain and sufferings. And to judge someone's ability to feel pain just by the language they speak is just simply absurd #Repost @thevegananarchist

@Regrann from @nyfasave - Her photo has been shared already and here is video of this poor baby. She was so weak she had trouble standing. We tell her story so people can see the suffering behind their meals. We are so sorry we couldn't save you 😒

That awkward moment when @taylorboebaylor stood next to a "Cut Diagram" with our Not Yours tee at a restaurant that likes to commodify sentient life 🚫🐷🚫
