Veggie Lovers Growing In US

Standard

Exciting news! According to The Raw Food World there are now 16 million people in the US who are vegan or vegetarian! That’s awesome! I really enjoyed reading the article about it, which includes the numbers and why the United States is going more veg. Well, the time is NOW! It’s capital F U N and DELICIOUS…and exciting to be a veg head, if I may say so! If someone had taught me what I know now twenty years ago, I would have gone vegan in a heartbeat! I just didn’t know!

Well now there’s SO much information and help out there if you’re considering going vegan! If I had known about PCRM’s cooking classes I would have signed up in a heart beat! There are instructors ALL over this country (the United States) and even in some outside the US. These classes are reasonably priced and not only do you get to learn about staying healthy, but you get to learn while watching the instructor cook, then sample the food (or eat a full meal) and at the end you take the recipes home! What’s not to love about that? Anyone who can read can do this! We need to get away from eating out all the time and take the power back to our own kitchens! Not only will it save you a lot of money, but it will save your health. You will know exactly what goes into your food! When you eat out at a restaurant you really don’t know unless you of course work there or run the restaurant!

In Sweden they’re even further ahead than the United States with one in ten Swedes being either vegetarian or vegan! Way to go! This positive trend is not going away, that’s a fact! There’s a massive shift going on towards Veganism with greater awareness of it being better for ones health, for the planet and for the animals! It is so exciting to watch! Here’s to hoping that it will occur sooner than later, especially for the sake of future generation and for the planets survival!

Fork Over The Planet

Standard

Yesterday  a friend sent me the following article called, “6 Terrifying Reasons Why It’s Time To Stop Eating Meat”. I thought, “That’s quite the title!” But once you take five minutes to read it, you will see that it is quite fitting and this is not just a “Meat is murder” kind of article, in case you’re a skeptic. If we don’t take these issues seriously, we may just as well  fork over the planet!

Funny enough, this first article was sent to me by a friend, who also happens to be a restaurant owner and who definitely is not a vegan. He simply wrote, “More ammo for you!”  I wrote back, “Thank you, I appreciate it!”

Today on Facebook, my friend David added this article, just published by Moby today titled,

My friend David wrote, “He’s been passionate about this for many years and I have learned much from him. Glad to see this article from him–It’s been a while. Moby knows what he’s talking about here.” I responded, “Right here on my coffee table, next to me, is his book that he co-wrote called “GRISTLE” – it touches on it all! Excellent book!”

Enjoy the articles and feel free to share! They are excellent!

Whether you’re a meat eater or not, we should all be very concerned about these important issues, as well as what is happening to our planet and food sources!
