The stronger and heavier I go into veganism, the more I want to know, the more I want to do. I am constantly trying to up my game. I want to find great recipes. I want to share this with everyone. I want to find more ways to be an advocate for others, whether answering questions, giving advice, or just some vegan humor. I literally cringe on my daily drive past the local slaughterhouse, and want to protest and do more.
That’s why I started this webpage. I wanted to show that veganism isn’t all about salad and hippies (a very ill-conceived notion at its finest).
I wasn’t looking for flowery dresses and perfect bodies. You don’t have to run 3 miles each day and never eat processed food. Not that there isn’t anything wrong with the above statements, but fuck me, who is that perfect? Not me! I am fine with that.
Veganism is a lifestyle choice that allows a person to have all the compassion in the world. We want to create the least amount of harm to all animals. By awakening, I grow more aware daily. I find new ways to contribute to a better world, a better me.
In doing so, we recreate ourselves to help all creatures! The wonderful side effect is that our way of living not only saves torturous, abusive, death sentence lives, we help the environment, and our health too.
The evidence for better health is seen everywhere. Story after story of people losing weight, feeling much better, and getting off their medications for all sorts of ailments are common. I had no need for my high blood pressure medication after becoming a vegan for about a year.
Aches and pains disappear. Joints feel better.
Animal agriculture is slowly rotting us away! How could they not be? They are crammed full of stressed animals, who are beaten, raped, doped with massive amounts of antibiotics, and surrounded by waste. They are then taken to slaughter with fear before being murdered. People are consuming that! How can any of this be good for our bodies? This is in addition to the thousands of scientific studies proving that eating meat and dairy contributes to cancer, heart problems, diabetes, weight gain, intestinal issues, and a whole host of other depressing issues.
Environmental problems related to animal waste, food and water consumption, antibiotic usage, and climate factors are harsh for the planet.
Veganism a win for all the right reasons. Why do so many people resist making the change?
Why do people keep hollering, “BACON”? Why do people keep saying they can’t give up their eggs and cheese when the dairy industry is just as fucking cruel. Millions of male chicks are ground up—GROUND THE FUCK UP!! Why the hell do we grind up living creatures like it’s a simple task? How can these people that do this for a living, go home and sleep?
Baby cows are taken from their mommy’s within hours of being born to be put into veal boxes. HOURS OF BEING BORN!! Mommies cry for their babies for days. Babies are put into boxes, chained for little movement until slaughter for tender meat. How is anything about this humane? How the fuck are we so cruel?
How do we put this cruelty in our own bodies and expect anything but negativity?
I have been a vegan for almost three years now. The more I know, the more I want/need to do. I am starting to understand why vegans get angry. I want people to wake up. I want people to smell the blood of their decisions.
