Okay fine… let’s make it not about the cruelty of animals for this once. Let’s talk stats. Let’s talk tangible evidence. Let’s talk smart business. Let’s talk the future prospects of our species, based on the current state of things. Allow me to show you the big picture of why your food choices matter.
Our land mass is being squandered to feed not us, but livestock. Did you hear that? Recent stats state that OVER HALF of our world’s natural food supply like grains, wheat, corn & soy goes to feed livestock. And that is just the tip of it. This iceberg is an empire state building that cannot be ignored. And it sure looks like this big fat iceberg is NOT melting anytime soon, unlike the polar ice caps rapidly doing just the opposite. The chart below shows that only a whopping 1% of habitable land mass goes to humans. That doesn’t seem right. But it’s a fact.
The charts provided, clearly show how massive livestock populations, & massive agriculture operations are taking over the entire ecosystem. Go ahead, review them, I’ll wait.
Biodiversity is being significantly compromised due to the human penchant for meat, fish & dairy. HALF the planet’s land mass is off limits due to the need to raise livestock & feed them. Ocean & freshwater is either being polluted or sucked up by agriculture. The system man has superimposed upon the Earth’s natural resources is completely unbalanced, causing the earth to collapse, essentially. Mother Nature is being misused, overused, & abused. And, I am here to tell you: it doesn’t have to be this way.
But I’m sure I don’t have to tell you, that greenhouse gases have far-ranging environmental & health effects. They cause climate change by trapping heat, & they also contribute to respiratory disease from smog & air pollution. Extreme weather, food supply disruptions, & increased wildfires are other effects of climate change caused by greenhouse gases. That said, 25% of green house gas emissions come from food production, which would be much less if we were a plant based society. The chart below clearly shows how above all else, cows in both meat herds & dairy herds make up most of that percentage. Not to mention, every other meat product speaks for itself.
Each & every food & beverage choice you make is not just a health matter or animal welfare matter or a matter of morals & ethics. Each & every food & beverage choice you make will save or not save the planet in the long-run. It’s that simple, & it begins with each choice you make as an individual human being with a soul. Perhaps we all need to take a little step back so we can see the forest through the trees. It’s time, friends. The ignorance has gone on for far too long & the environment is taking a pretty big hit because of it.
There’s no better starting point than on your plate. Big changes begin with small ones. If every single person in the world population stopped eating pork right now today this minute. There would be NO DEMAND for a supply of hog livestock. Pigs would be free & that would be it. It’s a very simple formula. No demand, warrants no supply.
A new demand for let’s say… beets, beet juice, beet chips, beet candy bars, beet cake, beet muffins… would skyrocket a demand for fields of beet plants. Thus, Big Business & industry would find a way to grow a shit ton of beets to supply the growing demand of what the population is CHOOSING. Popular food & beverage items become trendy & go viral & voilà… we have a new demand for a new supply of something totally healthy & beneficial not just to us & our families but to the PLANET. What an idea! Why didn’t someone think of that before? We could have been well on our way to solving all the planet’s problems long ago.
Oh yeah, I forgot… the good ole greed monster with dollar sign eyes & savvy subliminal “sucker” messages up his sleeve has been the leader of the (not so) free world for decades now, even centuries. Corporate global propaganda has brainwashed the entire population to believe that humans NEED meat, fish & dairy 3× a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year… to be well, fit, strong, optimally healthy, to get all necessary vitamins, minerals & nutrients, to live long, grow, survive & thrive. Enter stage left: the “bullshit” sneeze cough. Not only is this insanely outdated counterfeit practice killing the planet at a rapid rate that needs attention, but it is killing us too. It doesn’t take a genius to notice this fact.
For generations, we believed the lies we were hypnotized with via commercial advertising. False information has been baked into our psyche/subconscious mind, thus belief systems since before we were even born. Our mother’s mothers & father’s fathers & their parent’s parents… were all collectively hypnotized to believe that milk does a body good & protein packed animal product is the only way to get strong & grow & support a highly functional brain & body. Stage left… “bullshit” sneeze cough again.
Collective community practices & programs only begin to change when individual people change first. Which is why it is positively imperative to be mindful of what YOU, (yes you) choose to consume. The human community is made up of individuals & each ant has a job to do. If you were to distill it down into one little tiny thing… it would be that our one job here on earth is to make RIGHT CHOICES. To make choices that serve not only ourselves but the whole. We have a personal responsibility to the planet & an allegiance to humanity to operate our free will with CONSCIOUS consideration & compassion. That, dear reader, is called: “unity consciousness.” Unity consciousness is what the premise of “New Earth” is built on. Unity consciousness is the pillar of the Aquarian Age.
To all the sausage, bacon, egg & cheese McMuffin slathered in mayo & ketchup fans. To all the breakfast buffets & diners who serve endless eggs, dairy & pork products like they are going out of style ceaselessly every single day to no end. To all the decadent high carb, fat & cholesterol juicy beef burger guys. To all the fancy designer crispy or sensibly grilled… chicken sandwich gals. To all the big spender prime cut steak & chops people who think that bloody meat cuts are a mark of class & status.
To all the flesh eating maniacs who consume a stack of processed salt packed deli cold cuts on your subway sandwich when the clock strikes noon Monday through Friday, every single work week of your 9 to 5 life on repeat. To all who frequent the flat screened sports bar on Sunday for the bottomless boat of genetically modified wings & ranch. To all the cheesy mac heads, hot pocket people, frozen processed poison in a plastic microwave safe dish feasters. To all the cheap lazy editions of processed fad food that have zero health benefits & no nutritious value.
To all you ice cream tublings, milk shakers, cereal slurpers. To all the sneaky late night drive thru artists who consume unnatural copious amounts of greasy bad stuff after midnight… baked, in your pajamas. To all the extra cheese meatlovers pie Fridays & taco El Grande smothered in sour cream Tuesdays serenaded with soda, sodium & saturated fat. This one’s for you, amigos!
THIS IS FOR YOU!!
“A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral.”
No normal person in their right mind with a moral compass & a good heart would stand by or sit by and watch an animal suffer, be tortured, killed or murdered. It is inhumane, barbaric, vulgar, disturbing, violent, aggressive, morally bankrupt, and wrong. Modern man now knows that we DO NOT need meat to survive. We DO NOT need dairy to survive, thrive & be healthy either. We thus live in a world today that is far more advanced than our ancestors. WE are far more advanced than our ancestors. There is no excuse in this day and age to stand by and blindly accept a horrific practice of murdering animals for the sake of consumption.
Cows, chickens, pigs, & even fish are all mistreated & horribly tortured like in a hellish nightmare. This has been going on for decades. It has been going on for far too long. Animals have feelings, a heart, a mind & a SOUL. We as a nation of human beings must begin to honor that & STOP abusing our power & domain over the earth & its inhabitants. The capture & imprisonment, abuse & murder of precious animals should be a crime punishable in a court of law. It is not right, moral or ethical in any way, shape or form.
We should never be party to harming ANYTHING that has a mother. Period. Humans were born with free will. To choose anything other than Ahimsa, which means “do no harm,” is an injustice. Participating in the mass murder of animals by eating a burger or a chicken Caesar salad or a milkshake a few times a week, is no longer okay. It never was, but it used to be more acceptable to be ignorant in the 1960s, & 90s & even maybe a few years ago. But, we live in a WOKE world today in the 21st century, ignorance is not bliss anymore & karmic backlash is not just a happenstance, it’s a bitch, for real. And the proof is definitely in the pudding. We have had more than enough time as a human community to learn from our mistakes & thus witness the obvious damage we have caused & created for ourselves, families & the planet.
Flashing sign: eating dead flesh that came from an animal that suffered an untimely & unnecessary death… eventually makes us suffer just like it did. Would you like me to repeat that? Adopting the biological DNA & the karmic imprint of that harmed hurt animal will eventually wreak havoc on our wellbeing. It gives us cancer, disease & all the dead things death brings. On the other hand… eating alive, vibrant fruit & veggies grown in the sunshine will give us EXACTLY THAT: light & love, optimal health & wellness. It’s not rocket science.
When is it ever okay to eat the flesh of a living breathing being for the sake of greedy consumption or pleasure?? We are not monsters or alien creatures or wild animals with meat needs. This awful practice of eating animals is dumb, uneducated, hurtful, harmful, ignorant, unkind, cruel & Draconian. Just because left brained society has glorified meat & dairy as if it’s a necessity & a luxury & the mark of a well heeled citizen… DOES NOT make it TRUTH. Just because egoic mentalities JUSTIFIED eating meat & dairy all these years with misinformation & false promises of health & strength, does not make it right or true or worthy of any kind of even the slightest bit of value. IT’S A LIE built by the greed machine to sell product. That’s it.
Do not waste one more single solitary second feeding into surfacy pomp & propaganda. Do not wait one more day to spare a life. Cut down (or quit) on your meat & dairy intake today. Mother nature will thank you. Your body will thank you. Your auric field & soul will thank you. The Animal Kingdom will be honored you chose LOVE instead of a selfish, greedy need to satisfy some counterfeit urge, desire, taste or craving.
Meat & dairy alternatives are EVERYWHERE. There is absolutely positively no need to have to consume meat or dairy ever again for the rest of your life, if you choose that right this minute. It’s the 21st century. We live in an amazing evolved society who is far superior & more technologically advanced than any in recorded history. No human needs meat or dairy to survive, thrive, be happy, strong, fit, active & alive to the fullest. Who ever baked that lie into our collective consciousness all those years ago was a CON ARTIST.

In the age of Covid 19, a virus that is as mysterious as it is daunting no matter how you slice it, has changed the entire face of our culture. This infamous invisible enemy, paired with the mass government response to it, has caused the entire infrastructure to be disrupted. You could say, it has been bulldozed to the ground in order to be built back up again new & with any luck, improved. Improved ideally with the collective adopting a whole new outlook, & approach to living, interacting, behaving, & treating each other. Improved ideally with the collective adopting many new programs that fund a freer more prosperous easier lifestyle going forward. That would be nice, wouldn’t it?
The human population is having to rethink, reevaluate, restructure, re-purpose, rebuild, renovate, & reconfigure their plans, purposes, & priorities. Everything seems to be in question. We are being compelled to be resourceful, creative & to think outside the box. We are taking responsibility for our actions & becoming hyper aware of ourselves & of each other on an unprecedented level. We are being pushed right out of our comfort zones right into a new normal, as they say. Things have definitely shifted & changed forever in many significant ways. For the good, the bad or indifferent… is totally debatable, depending on who you are. I for one, kinda think that Pandora’s Box just got its butt kicked royally. We are now seeing a whole lotta stuff that was once kept secret and/or hidden. Total exposure is on the rise. For example… one thing the media has highlighted recently, is that there appears to be meat shortages everywhere. Maybe this is a SIGNthat we should seriously be considering our meatless options. Ya think?
Two days ago, while the general population focused on the typical issues like partisan mind games, ego battles over freedom & rights, unemployment numbers, the economy, the education of our children, keeping our families fed & safe, reopening our society & the death toll rising…
Back at the ranch… I sat in silent introspection…
…and this is what was given to me:
Sound the alarm! Our animals are being tortured, our land being raped, our oceans polluted & our water supply poisoned. What the heezie does Mother Nature have to do to wake up this human race? What kind of plague, virus, natural disaster or terrorist attack has to occur for this population to start doing the right thing?? Huh?
To what degree does Mother Nature have to go… to shut down factory farming & slaughterhouses for GOOD next time? It was quite an extreme measure Mother Nature had to take to shut the whole world down just so that humans can be FORCED to learn how to go within. To learn how to seek solace via the inner realms, seek wholeness from our home bases, instead of reaching everywhere outside of ourselves for satisfaction, happiness, fulfillment, love, self worth, value, definition & purpose. When humans are faced with their own mortality, it kinda forces them to start reevaluating what’s really important in life.
What more do people want as PROOF, that life on this planet was given to us, not for our greedy unhealthy OVER CONSUMPTION… but for us to LOVE. Do no harm. What part of “do no harm” do people not understand? Society should be ashamed of itself.
***The term Ahimsa (do no harm) is an important spiritual doctrine shared by Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. It literally means ‘non-injury’ and ‘non-killing’. It implies the total avoidance of harming of any kind of living creatures not only by deeds, but also by words and in thoughts. FYI: the concept of “do no harm,” is notably also contained in the Hippocratic Oath that all medical personnel must take regarding their patients.
Human beings were not meant to slaughter innocent animals by the thousands every hour of every day across the globe. What a crying shame… that the media & government actually advertises to the general public, that we need meat to survive. What a blatant LIE. Our food supply is not being compromised or threatened. It is being righteously interrupted & redirected to a moral & ethical, humane & healthy, spiritually sound program. One filled with NO MURDERED ANIMAL MEAT. Period. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist or a straight A student to see the bigger picture, beyond the veil… into the deeper meaning of it all, on the grand scale of human evolution. When you review history, & look at the “story of us,” you begin to see very clearly the succession & progression of things.
When the collective’s bad behavior comes to a head, Nature sits us down, & shuts us up… to force us to be take a good hard look at our choices, actions, & states of mind & thus lot in life according to that. To force us to rely less on any codependent existence but rather become interdependent for the purpose of coexisting rather than always competing & stealing energy from one another in a dog eat dog world. To force us to depend less on the material world & more on our soul. To force us to face our lives with less distractions & drama but more time & space so that we may gauge exactly what we are creating for ourselves & our families, & also what we have been thus buying into. <<<<<<THAT’S AN IMPORTANT STATEMENT. What have… YOU, been buying into lately?
“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.”
Consequently… we may then be able to take responsibility & consciously CHANGE our adverse ways, iron the kinks, manage the missteps, rethink our path. In the current world pandemic case, front liners are having to take many risks witnessing sickness, suffering,suffocating, death & dying every day, day in & day out. This comes with a whole nother set of learning curves & challenges. Props & praise to all the first responders who are Earth Angels. Sending love, light & protection.
That said, our precious animals & creatures of the earth die a horrible death every single second, of every single day for years & years with no end in sight, but rather just an immense growing DEMAND FOR MORE. What a crying shame. I don’t see any first responders on the front lines nobly trying to save them, do you?? Why are their lives any different from ours? In cages, in pens, stressed out on death row & treated like things instead of creatures with beating hearts. We might reach the 100 thousand mark of Covid deaths in the U.S.? Well, the greed system of factory farming murders 100 thousand innocent animals a DAY. No wait, I’m sorry… miscalculated…
“EACH DAY approximately 160 MILLION farm animals throughout the world are transported to a slaughterhouse.”
– Farm Animal Rights Movement
“Approximately 25 MILLION farm animals are slaughtered EACH DAY in the United States.”
– Mercy for Animals
Every single solitary day now for years & years… just so ignorant folk can have some kind of brainwashed twisted luxury of a hamburger on their menu, a steak on their plate, ham on their sandwich or a tray of greasy fried chicken wings on their Super bowl Sunday spread. Shame on u. Oops, did I just say that? Sorry, I’m not sorry.
There is no excuse. These days their are soooo many meat alternatives more than ever before. Heck we can grow real beef from a petri dish in a lab. Why do we have to continue to mass murder animals? Shut the meat processing plants down I say! Shut them down! Set them on fire & let the flames consume all the horrible karma that’s killing our earth & morally corrupting our children & population at large… snuffing out any semblance of reverence or respect for God’s creatures. STOP eating animal flesh. Boycott it. If there is NO DEMAND, there will be no supply necessary. The oldest equation in the book. Let’s begin to make the demand for MEATLESS ALTERNATIVES. That’s it. Very simple.
But, you can’t do that can you? Because you & your fellow inmates are brainwashed into believing that you MUST have meat in your diet. Straight up. There are plenty of remarkable ways to get plant based protein. Regarding dairy? NO ONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND should ever have to drink animal’s milk ever again. We have so many delicious & more nutritious alternatives it’s ridiculous. Cheese, eggs, fish… in moderation, all debatable for another constructive conversation. But, regarding GALLONS & gallons of cow’s milk consumers are constantly buying? There is no excuse. Not necessary ANY MORE. Poor cows are raped by machines to stay lactating just so the population can consume it. It’s unnatural, inhumane & simply NOT NECESSARY from a nutrition standpoint or any standpoint for that matter.
“About NINE MILLION COWS are being used for milk production in the United States at any given time.” – American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
Almond, cashew, coconut, soy, etc etc etc… there are a million & one different variations of plant based milk to fit EVERYONE’S taste that exists right now around ever corner, & every bend. We have come a long way, plant based milk is now even very accessible in “food deserts” & corner store laden impoverished hoods. There is a demand for plant based milk & dairy, so it is slowly but surely seeping into stores everywhere. The supply is growing more abundant & available to the average citizen in every class & demographic now more than ever, simply because…. people are waking up. People are wanting to drink the healthy alternative to the chemically treated forced lactation of an animal. See, the supply & demand strategy DOES WORK. This proves it.
Now, going forward, all we have to do is ramp it up. BOYCOTT milk… altogether. That will exponentially cut our human consumption of dairy in half… which is significant enough to make a huge difference in the dairy industry. Thus, significantly reducing the mistreatment of animals.
Now going forward, we can also do the same thing with MEAT. Do you really have to eat 25 wings on Sunday at the bar? There are wing alternatives you know. Just like the Impossible Burger, there are now plenty of tasty chicken & bacon alternatives available everywhere. We just have to boycott meat. Whatever the consumer wants becomes the “demand” so if animal meat is no longer wanted… the nonexistent demand will warrant NO SUPPLY.
All corporations & greedy money mongers care about anyway, is the almighty dollar. They don’t care if it’s cow, crocodile or bat… if that’s what the consumer wants… they will produce it. And thus, sell the crap out of that product. If it becomes NO LONGER meat, & is replaced by a HUGE DEMAND for plant based options… They WILL MEET THE NEED. Big Business is not gonna try to keep selling tee shirts to a bunch of people that don’t wear them anymore. Big Business follows the money trail that follows the trends.
Let’s make meat “out of style,” unpopular, frowned upon… like we as a culture basically have done with cigarettes & vaping. Let’s make meat no longer relevant to our food consumption, health, wellness & survival. We will automatically put factory farming right out of business. Dairy farms, the hellish slaughter houses, the despicable meat processing plants will close down due to NO DEMAND for its product supply. And new plants will open that replace them, new plant-based processing plants, labs & more produce farms. Government & society will always adapt & adjust to the changing trends & times & tastes & preferences of its people. It’s just the way things work. Supply & demand.
It’s starts with one. Each individual person’s choice. Then that one choice becomes infectious to others & others make better more informed, responsible, respectable choices. Plant-based choices. Boycott meat & milk. Right now. Its very simple. Get over the “but it tastes good” attitude… & next time you think about purchasing that gallon of milk or overstocking up on steaks & bacon… hear the distant screams of fear, pain & sadness that go along with the bloody murder & mistreatment of those poor animals that were harmed for it. Then, think again, CHOOSE WISELY. We ALL need to take responsibility for cleaning up the karma of this planet. Individually & collectively we need to stop acting ignorant, & turning a blind eye on the truth.
It is no longer in our best interest to keep EXCESSIVELY OVER CONSUMING meat & dairy to the point where there is severe blood on our hands in the most tragic, immoral & unconscionable way. Don’t you dare play dumb. We are too evolved as a species to act like we don’t know where that meat on our plate came from. It’s time for each & everyone of us to get a back bone, grow a pair & STOP being morally irresponsible, blatantly defiant & irreverently disrespectful to living breathing innocent creatures. God did not put us here to abuse them & mass murder them for the sake of greed & gluttony. We are spitting in the Holy face of the God-force & Mother Nature by continuing this behavior. It’s morally corrupt, a spiritual defamation & totally sacrilegious as far as I’m concerned..
Mass murdering animals for the sake of greedy meat consumption is no longer acceptable & should NOT BE the general population’s status quo any more. No longer should we be sitting around passing off this nasty meat eating habit we have, as a healthy necessary habit. That’s simply NOT TRUE.
With all due respect to these carefully crafted labels… I‘m not a vegan, I’m not a vegetarian, I’m not some left wing green new dealer, or global warming activist. What I am is: an Animal Ambassador, a Nature Ambassador, an honorary God Force inductee… giving a voice to the voiceless. I am pro Earth. I am pro plant. I am pro Mother Nature & pro equal ethical treatment of ALL God’s creatures. We have a duty as humans to protect ourselves, each other, the earth & all its inhabitants. If you honestly DO NOT have the where will all, to honer that code… then frankly, you don’t deserve to be here.
It’s circa 2020, not 1920. We are wiser than we ever were before in all of history. We can’t ignore the truth & go back to being innocent or ignorant, just gobbling down excessive amounts of dead animal product all the time… blindly accepting it cause that’s what everyone else is doing & that’s what media & society says is RIGHT. NO LONGER can we do that.
We’ve been doing it for too long. It’s time to change our bad inhumane choices & habits… & be better versions of ourselves. Circa 2020, on this planet, we should be living with more honesty, integrity & harmony by now. We should collectively be evolved enough to be consciously choosing to PROTECT the planet & her inhabitants. We should be honoring the soul of the Earth, Mother Gaia, Planet Terra, to the utmost degree. We need & MUST graduate to the next level: the fair & humane treatment of all living creatures.

There are more than 17,000 dog-meat farms in South Korea. – Humane Society of the United States

If you don’t know what a “bile farm” is… GOOGLE IT. You will be completely devastated. This kind of bad behavior is NOT HUMAN. We must have impostors running around on this earth that just look like humans, but are actually soulless monsters. They are repugnant robots sent here to poison the planet. It’s our job to STOP THEM.
It’s time to man & woman up & step up to the plate, & stop buying into the false narrative that states: meat is good for you & milk does a body good. It’s a false advertisement that has brainwashed the entire population to over consume & feed big business with major profits made of dirty money. Profits gained at the cost of innocent lives.
“An average person living in a developed country who is not a vegetarian or vegan will consume approximately 7000 ANIMALS during his or her lifetime.” – Vegetarian Calculator
Let’s face it… these nefarious profits are assuredly gained at the cost of our morals, values, karma, body, heart, mind & soul as well. We pay the price every day for consuming that slaughtered animal. You are what you eat… is not just a wonky statement… it’s the truth. All that toxic DNA accumulating over time in your body, bones, muscles, tissue, arteries, organs, cells, & energy field… just slowly poisoning you with the death & dying atoms of bad karma. Stop poisoning yourself with meat & dairy… creating all kinds of diseases in the body, compromising the quality of your life. Stop paying the factory farming industry’s salary, stop funding their yachts & high life styles, stop employing Big Pharma to keep you sick. It’s all a big giant greed machine, a scam that brutally tortures & kills animals for a buck. Then down the road, winds up causing havoc in our bodies, heart health, fitness, mental health, colons, digestive tracks, reproductive organs, energy levels, etc etc.
Its NOT NATURAL, the EXCESSIVE over consumption of meat & dairy. The amount of meat & dairy that we were taught to be accustomed to, that we were taught is right & proper… is a falsehood. We have been reeled into believing that this falsified program is okay for our life, morally correct, & necessary for our survival. They used propaganda & scare tactics to fool us into believing that meat & dairy consumption is ESSENTIAL to have a high quality of life, & ESSENTIAL to getting all necessary vitamins & nutrients to be a healthy, strong & productive human being. But as you can plainly see, it has done nothing of the sort. It has made us sick, overweight, lethargic, depressed, unmotivated, gluttonous, addicted, obese, prone to all kinds of diseases, with a weakened immune system & a undernourished unbalanced body. That’s NOT what people thought they were signing up for. Now, Big Pharma is CASHING IN. And unfortunately, our damaged health & wellness is their golden ticket.
Plant based eating will severely damage not us… but rather to their dismay… the greed machine. And Big Pharma, healthcare & factory farming would no longer profit off of man’s ignorant, sick & twisted over-consumption of meat & dairy. My assumption, is that Big Brother won’t give up that easy, so the powers that be, will continue to nudge us in their devious direction. But, if I may speak on behalf of all of us… we are not that stupid anymore. After much investigation, the facts are in: we are being played. We’ve been being played for decades upon decades & it’s time we rise up out of that victim role & refuse to engage is such blasphemy. The market for meat should be shut down on a grand scale.
Meat eating & drinking animal milk should be made illegal.
Going forward, we must protect the rights of innocent creatures so we can begin to significantly clean up the mass karma of humanity. We can begin to heal Mother Nature & thus quite obviously begin to heal ourselves. We can begin to heal ourselves from all the self-inflicted harm we have caused via excessive over-consumption of dead animal & dairy products. This over-consumption has been tangling up our lives with exorbitant doctor & dentist bills, & has made us codependent on hospitals & drugs. We are better than that. We deserve better.
Its time we moved beyond this dysfunctional paradigm of illusion & position our lives to live in the light where we choose life… not death. It’s time we make life-giving, fresh food choices jam packed with high vibration, vitality & top shelf vitamins & nutrients. Lets veer away from the rotting flesh choices that clog our bodies with toxicity, chemicals & density while attacking our cells with free radicals, stealing good bacteria, compromising our immune systems with deterioration, aging, sickness & disease.
Be pro plant. For the sake of yourself, your family, the human condition, future generations. Do the right thing. Just say NO… to meat & milk. We will save cheese, eggs & fish for another conversation. Let’s start there. It’s an EXCELLENT starting point.
“Now go! Go in peace to love & serve the Lord…” as the Catholic priest says each time he ends mass & dismisses the congregation.
I say… “Now go! Go in peace to love & serve yourself, your neighbor, your highest good & the highest good of everyone & thing on the planet. Praise be to Mother Gaia. Amen. Namaste!”

Back in Culinary school, we were asked to name the “Last Meal” we would choose to have if we were gonna pass on in a few hours. If we were given the option to enjoy one last delicious Hoo- Ra before we sail off into the sunset to meet the Big Man in the sky… just… what would it be?
Ya know what my answer was every time someone ever asked me that? Bacon & over easy eggs on buttered toast.Hands down.
“Dippy eggs” we used to call them as a term of endearment for the poor little unhatched chic sweet peas. Then we have the slathered melty, buttery, good ole polka dotted wonder white, nutrient-free, bleached fake fortified bread product…lol. And at last… we have thee most elite guilty pleasure of all to ever to hit the palate or plate stage…
Thee Rock Star of every kitchen across the globe: BACON.
I am its #1 fan, believe me. Just like the fat kid that loves cake I love bacon, just as much as the next guy. Crispity, greas-pity, crumble in your mouth-watering; lick your lips sizzling; mini orgasm in a pan frying: BACON. Geez, it’s even fun & satisfying to muse about.
Becoming Vegan & giving up bacon, is just like dating a supermodel or Matthew McConaughey (for the ladies) & then… breaking up forever…to never again partake in the fantastic pleasure of their acquaintance ever… ever… again. All that’s left is a dreamy memory, a fantasy of what was, & pretty much… a skeleton in the wind. Then the usual forward motion protocol… is typically to compare every next person to the god or goddess template, who will essentially never really truly compare. We’ve all had that template person at one point, I’m sure.
Well, in this case, BACON is that template person, & it’s not the easiest break-up to shake. We as a society…revere it. We put bacon on a pedestal, & have praised its greasy glory for many moons. We definitely are a peculiar brand of people, I must say.
This photo is fondly named: “Breakfast in America.” Wow, right?
But, look how simple… Look how beautiful…
Eggs, butter, bacon & cheese are Rock Stars in my book. As a Culinary Artist, moving forward, I find it depressing to not be able to utilize these essential ingredients to every Chefs forte. But… oh well. I will suck it up, I guess. It is a small sacrifice for a morally worthwhile, very significant cause. Saving God’s creatures is King. On the ethically-correct scale…preserving Mother Nature & respecting all life is Top Dog. I’m not a jellyfish with no backbone who can’t sit up straight or practice a little healthy self-discipline for the sake of the greater good. I don’t just talk a good game cause I can. I talk it, cause I honor the unspoken code of loyalty to mankind & integrity of personhood. My money is where my mouth is. Is yours?
I am a bonafide 100% American Chef trained foodie who loves & appreciates ALL cuisines, & If I am willing to go Vegan for the sake of: service to the Planet… then…. so can you, my friend… so-can-YOU.
Not sayin’ it’s gonna be a walk in the park or a sail down the waterslide… but it’ll be an adventure worth every mini attitude adjustment made. The cleaned up karma alone, is one valuable long-term benefit to look forward to. With regard to a spiritual standpoint… due to the elevation of vibrational frequency via the consumption of vibrant plant-based foods, both personal & planetary karma will be reversed naturally.
All in the scheme of things, like a series of events that follow one after the other in sequence, the significant behavioral changes that take place due to a newly launched or practiced Vegan lifestyle…result in a new set of circumstances. “Cause & effect” is altered when the new invisible energetic trends fall like dominoes through the portals of planetary improvement. Thus… a new found freedom transpires. Freedom from the ball & chain of outdated toxic programs & patterns. Wonderbread be gone!
Breakin’ the unbreakable chain is a worthwhile feat… for the advent of a New World order is at hand, & the dawn of a better day is upon us. Essentially, the toilet is getting flushed of all the substandard practices of a formerly morally corrupt human society.
Keeping in mind that the decision to embark upon a Vegan lifestyle can be a gradual change for those going at their own pace… progress, not perfection would be appropriate to insert here. ANY small change is contributing to the welfare of mankind. The greater good surely appreciates all effort & steps toward positive change. Going Vegan cold turkey (lol) very well may be a challenge in such ways. However, effort & small adjustments do indeed add up to bigger ones eventually, for sure. Mini changes are changes too. Adjusting one’s self, life, daily habits & patterns may take some time & concerted effort. Prioritizing accordingly might indeed be called for…a Re-Eval as they say. Even a certain death may seem to take place. Grieving the loss of not only cherished edible delights but also the fond memories that go with them.
All the lavish warm holidays spent gathered around a juicy browned turkey by candle lite with all the tidings & trimmings of a meat & dairy infused love fest. The Sunday dinners at Mama Lucia’s house with a big lush bowl of spagetts & meat-a-ballz-a. I for one… grew up in an off the boat Italian family that did not take no for an answer! lol. One did not sit at the table with my grandfather at the helm &….not partake of all the hard work & effort of my Mom-Mom Zapparelli & her kitchen entourage. That would be disrespectful! The cold hard stare could make you cry… lol. So yes, many of us will have to make certain calls at certain times… understandable. Life certainly is not black & white. It looks to me like life actually has a pretty extravagant full-color 3-dimensional scheme like OZ. So yea, use your best judgment. People matter too…
But, oh will I miss….that endearing paper thin prosciutto puffed up upon the slate plate, the creamy decadence of French Brie, the tart crumble of ripe herb rolled Chèvre, Spanish Manchego aged to perfection, the smoky or nutty caramelly flavor profiles of gratifying Gouda & the sharp & lovely bite of champagne & cheddar together. Not to mention, the superior smothering skills of magnificent Mozzarella!!
What else will be missed? The Antipasti spread charming the pants off a good gathering of precious pairings of people, wine, brew & spirits off the deck or by the pool & bonfire. The backyard grill-outs that coined dogs & brats & burgers king of the food chain. Who doesn’t love love love wings & football? The New Year’s Eve after party bacon & eggs at 3am, that fantastic smoker out back by the barn, KFC, Taco Bell Grande, Micky-D’s, Mc-Everything!
Cook-OUT, Pizza Pizza Pizza! Mom’s homemade meatloaf, Prime Rib at the club or convention. Succulent sauced low n slow cooked baby-backs with coleslaw, mac salad, or potato salad. Biscuits, sausage & gravy, or (S.O.S.) creamed chipped beef. Southern fried genius, corned beef & cabbage, pulled pork, beef brisket, jerky, BBQ & stew. Quiché, Crêpes, souffle, crème brûlée, mid-rare grass fed filet. Cheesy mac, cheesy fries, cheese steak, cheese sauce, cheese curls, cheese balls, a loaded baked potat-a, a chicken Pot-Pie. Baked ziti, lasagna, ravioli, Parmesan encrusted everything. French toast, French Crullers, buttercream frosting, pudding, sundaes, yogurt, m&m’s… WTF???
Not fair. I get it. lol.

Day three of my 7-day Vegan challenge & I am not gonna lie…on my evening leisure walk to the local shopping center last nite, I felt completely assaulted by the scent filled breezes. As I approached the entrance-way to civilization….I noticed the smell of fried food in the air, the smell of tacos from “El Cerro Grande,” the smell of chicken from “Buffalo Wild Wings” & the smell of an almost salacious beef fantasy… piping thick chimney-like smoke out into the atmosphere via “Cookout.” Not fair! Not fair! Not fair to a Vegan, I say!
Let me try & help us all out a bit. I plan to continuously expand & grow within this realm, belief system, community, & conscious awareness. I will post links accordingly. It is circa 2017, there is way more availability & accessibility & affordability to this Vegan/Vegetarian lifestyle than ever, ever before, folks… in every city, town, state, community nationwide & worldwide.
Many cultures have actually been practicing these Vegan & Vegetarian principles, for not only decades but also centuries. The truth shall prevail! The Lion will indeed lay with the Lamb, & justice will be served. Which simply means that everybody will live peacefully together. I am fully aware that there will always be a natural food-chain in place with regard to the Animal Kingdom, for the purpose of population control & the harmony of the ecosystem. However, the senseless killing of creatures for greedy gain as opposed to survival or necessity, will in due time cease to exist. It is against Universal Law & producing mass karmic backlash for our collective human evolution & must be stopped for the sake of humanity if we are to protect & preserve our Race on Earth. With regard to the Lion/Lamb metaphor, the Bible quotes: “None will harm or destroy another on my entire holy mountain, for the land will be as full of the knowledge of the Lord as the sea is filled with water.” Isaiah 11:9 The knowledge will be Veganism, if you will. Get VEGUCATED!
Going Vegan solves so many world issues it’s ridiculous. If the world went Vegan, it would create an enormous chain reaction, in a variety of streams. On a grand scale, it is a perfect solution for world hunger. It is the most superior proactive form of environmental protection. Veganism can prevent & eliminate illnesses, diseases, the necessity for countless doctors, the overuse & addiction to endless chemicals & drugs, make the endangerment of any species obsolete…. & it will ultimately promote the Earth’s utmost preservation. If we all became Vegan today, we would change the game significantly. The word Significantly doesn’t even scratch the surface regarding the positive impact we would have on the dysfunctional interrelation of all things causing massive problems in our worldly system. We would reverse the probable demise of our Earth as we know it. We would essentially Save the Planet! We would be heroes. True heroes. You can choose to be a hero today! Get Vegucated! GoVegan now!
I am not “religious.” I do not believe in organized religion, even though I had once called myself “Christian” 20 years ago. I was studying Christianity & Church hopping while participating in the singing of praises part @ any service that had music. It was fun & interesting & was a phase I had to indeed travel through to get to where I am today. However, the Bible contains phrases that I do believe genuinely are relevant to the campaign for Universal peace & love that I practice & live today. Plus, Christians make up a huge percentage of the world. It’s nice to be able to refer to books & customary traditions or beliefs that people can relate to. My goal is to reach people on a Universal level, no matter age, race, religion, creed or culture. We are all human beings from Planet Earth. Period.
Muslims, Hindus, & the cultures of India are predominately Vegetarian/Vegan & have practiced belief systems that generally view all animals as sacred creatures to be honored not harmed or murdered. The Hare Krishnas practice “Krishna Consciousness” & are strictly Vegetarian.
When I was a street musician hippie chick back in the 90s traveling cross country, we used to get fed in every city via the Hare Krishna Temples.
They welcome everyone as long as you leave your shoes at the door, & observe their 45-minute spirit infused service. The experience is inviting & uplifting even if you don’t understand the language. It’s all about raising vibration there. The service is decked out in fresh flowers detailing ornate portraits of Blessed Deities, Lord Krishna, Hindu Gods & Goddesses. The beautiful beaded, jeweled, & gemmed stylings of this handcrafted luxurious temple for sacred worship…. are surely a sight for sore eyes. They dance, they sing, they speak in tongues it sounds like…& they praise the bounty & beauty of Krishna! The word Krishna means: “Energy of God.” The energy of God does not approve of the murder of animals.
The Hare Krishna Book of Vegetarian Cooking by Adiraja Dasa <this cookbook is probably one of the best Vegetarian cookbooks ever written. Let me tell you, the Hare Krishna’s “Sunday Feast” @ 5pm in every city nationwide, is hands down probably the BEST Vegetarian/Vegan cuisine you will ever taste in your life.
They are master chefs & bakers. They have mastered the art of Vegan/Vegetarian cuisine. The finest preparations of meat & dairy dishes… pale in comparison to this scrumptious edible Food Art. Straight up. I myself have never tasted anything better. They feed 1000s of people weekly. They bring the food out in giant buckets & large sheet trays. It’s like a long buffet line that you can go through as many times as you want, & it’s like Christmas morning every time, I swear. Every food item is spiced to perfection & half the time you have no idea what you are even eating….but you don’t care, cause that is how amazing it is! Honestly, I haven’t tasted better more enjoyable flavorful food since…& my last barefoot squat on a Krishna Temple floor was just over 20 years ago, now…
And the smell in there!!! INTOXICATING… If you weren’t hungry when you walked through the door, you WILL BE….you can bet on that. Not to mention, the kind of incense these people make… is definitely in a class of its own. Nowhere else can you find incense that smells this good. Believe me, I have tried.
SUNDAY FESTIVAL / OPEN HOUSE>>
“Delicious, traditional Vedic cuisine was part of the cultural legacy Krishna consciousness brought to Western shores. Eating, like everything else for Krishna devotees is a part of the complete spiritual experience of life.
Sunday sees the doors swung open and hundreds of friends-regulars as well as newcomers-joining in a festival of music, dance, and spiritual discussion and then sharing hearty plates of savories, veggie entrees, sweets, and nectar drinks. Come by on Sunday and relish the taste of the world’s oldest cultural tradition.”
Lets talk MILK a second. Got Milk? Well, what I got is much more beneficial and… informative. Discretion is advised:
“We may call the cows who produce milk “mothers,” but they never actually get to be mothers because their babies are taken away from them after birth. And we certainly don’t treat them with the respect that mothers deserve. Cows and other factory-farmed female animals endure being raped repeatedly, and their babies are torn away from them before they’re all killed. Cows produce milk for the same reason that humans do: to nourish their young. In order to force them to produce as much milk as possible, farmers typically impregnate cows every year using a device that the industry calls a “rape rack.”
The very core of factory farming is breeding. Farmers exploit the female reproductive system to keep up a steady influx of new victims whom they can turn into “products” on supermarket shelves.
Cows are forcibly raped, and calves are deliberately orphaned to produce milk.” —-www.peta.org
Without the deliberate and systemic violation of female bodies, the animal agriculture industry would crumble. That includes ALL ANIMALS that are being forced to produce eggs, babies, or milk for human consumption that are in fact raped & forced to breed & reproduce unnaturally. The Animal Product Industry is not just killing animals, but torturing them. This is UNACCEPTABLE & these deplorable inhumane people should INDEFINITELY BE PROSECUTED IN A COURT OF LAW>
There is no excuse for the daily hidden multi-billion dollar motivated flagrant disrespect & dishonoring of animals. It’s not something I believe should be taken lightly. The next time you are roaming down The Dead Animal Isle or the milk, butter, eggs, ice cream, cheese & yogurt Isle of Shame…make sure you see this picture in your mind before you make a contribution to the greedy Animal Terrorists.
Cows wanna be Moms too. They deserve to bond with their young, raise them & nurture them just like us. They are smart, loving, sweet creatures that are more than suitable pet alternatives. They shouldn’t be treated like a commodity or object only for the purpose of material gain. They are living breathing creatures with a heart beat. So why should their precious lives be assaulted & exploited? It’s not morally correct or humane. Period. End of story.
Welcome to my pages, thank you for stopping by. This entry is Day Two of my “7-day Vegan” challenge. SHARING IS CARING. Share this article if you care 🙂 Stay tuned for more, as I plan to continue to educate & inform, as well as document my progress in blog posts to come. I invite you all to join me, it’ll be fun!
Today I am gonna start with some Pig facts. I think pigs are cute. They are like fat curly tail dogs with giant snouts.
Pigs are extraordinarily intelligent. They are curious and insightful animals who are widely accepted as being smarter than young children of at least 3 years of age, dogs, and even some primates.
Pigs are extremely social animals. They form close bonds with other individuals and love close contact and lying down together.
Pigs are very clean, keeping their toilet area far away from where they lie down and eat. Even newborn piglets will leave the nest to go to the toilet within hours of birth.
So next time you might be compelled to call someone a “pig” for being sloppy or unclean….think again!
I too was guilty of wearing blinders in previous days, weeks, months & years, by over & over & over again, remaining ignorant to: the undeniable inhumane treatment to other living creatures & royal species on this Earth… by none other than… humans. I am horrified with regard to the matter, & get completely jacked up with a warranted rage within, when I so much as think about for one second, the way that our society has deemed the slaughtering of animals as a noncriminal act. ANY HUMAN BEING THAT HAS THE GALL TO MISTREAT, ABUSE, HARM, HURT, OR TORTURE ANOTHER LIVING BREATHING CREATURE SHOULD BE IMPRISONED IN A CELL WITH NO WINDOWS, FOUR WALLS PAPERED WITH PHOTOS OF SLAUGHTERED ANIMALS, & A BIG GIANT MIRROR TO FACE THEMSELVES WITH… NEXT TO WHAT THEY HAVE DONE… FOR THE REST OF THEIR NATURAL LIFE. That sounds about right. Either that, or hung….like in the old Wild West days in front of all their peers in the town hall like the spectacle they are. Heck, burn them at the stake for all it’s worth, they are the real Heretics of our day. These people are psychopaths, just as serial killers. They are the serial killers of the precious animal species. They are murderous people that deserve legal backlash & karmic consequences.
The Special Victims Unit (SVU) is the name of a specialized division within some police departments. The detectives in this division typically investigate crimes involving sexual assault or victims of non-sexual crimes who require specialist handling such as the very young, or the very elderly, or the handicapped. There certainly is room available in that slot of specialty for: crimes against animals. Government can easily add this crime to their docket. I believe animal killers should be held accountable with the same laws & standards that convicted murderers are, such as being sentenced to Death Row, life w/o parole, 23-hour lockdown, slop food & minimal human interaction for the duration of their days.
The accepted standard we were taught as children when we were vulnerable spongey students of the collective mind was all wrong all along. If you grew up in America, at least….you were told by sensationalism, media, propaganda, teachers, schools, TV programs, churches & marketing models that to consume the likes of bacon, lunchmeat, hot dogs, burgers, pork, chicken, beef, duck, turkey, lamb, Foie Gras, steak & lobster, meatballs & sausage, cheese, milk, butter, yogurt & ice cream, is ethical proper behavior. We were told that it is healthy & necessary for optimal health & nutrition, physical strength, endurance, well being, growth, & weight control when applied accordingly to various diet plans or bodybuilding strategies. For example, the Atkins diet promotes nothing but a protein packed strict adherence mostly via animal products. The theory behind Dr. Atkins’ diet is that by cutting down on starchy foods like potatoes, bread, and pasta and eating mainly protein and fats like meat, eggs, and cheese you can eat as much as you want and still lose weight. Holy cow! (no pun intended) Isn’t that a dream come true for most people!… It was contagious & trendy, folks were obsessed with this “all protein” fad & the craze of this particular diet swept the country at one time…giving the animal killing industry a big economic boost, I bet.
Here are some familiar examples of slogans, advertisements, subliminal messages & hypnotic repetitive suggestions that we grew up with: “Pork is the new white meat” “Milk does a body good!” “My Bologna has a first name…” And… “Happy Meals” are….well…HAPPY! Hamburgers & hot dogs are the All-American party favorite. “BallPark Franks” are the prime staple on the bleachers of all sporting events. My personal favorite…pizza, pizza, & more pizza! I am willing to bet that any one of the following pizza joints are less than a mile away from where you are right now…Domino’s, Papa John’s, Pizza Hut, Chuck E Cheese’s, or Little Caesars. Lets’ not even start the “chicken wings” industry conversation, it’s upsetting & appalling. We’ll save that awful demonstration of straight human debauchery…for a later discussion. It’s not okay, btw, to consume chicken wings. Not on “Gameday” not on 10cent wing nite, not cause your drunk at 2Am, and they just well….you couldn’t resist.
Mac & cheese is every kid’s favorite thing. And I am willing to bet that upwards of 85% of American restaurants nationwide offer “chicken fingers & fries” as the first item on the kid’s menu. Shit… diners, waffle & pancake houses, Denny’s, & Perkins everywhere would go out of business if we didn’t mass produce eggs by the thousands. The colorful dying of eggs at Easter time is considered an endearing family tradition. Eggs seem to be that go-to prime source of inexpensive protein that all demographics have access to no matter what socio-economic class they are in.
I gotta say…fish oil & krill oil is actually really just a disguised fancy snake oil, if ya ask me. Omega 3 fatty acids are found in flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, beans, leafy greens, berries, wild rice, honeydew, mangoes, herbs & spices…just to mention a few. It is simply not necessary to take this supplement…for any reason. Fisheries can be cruel operations just as the slaughter houses & factory farms. We will explore that subject matter later.
Then we have the wildly celebrated “Turkey day” better known as….. Thanksgiving. The Turkey has long been associated with the connection to the Earth and its blessings. This spirit animal reminds us of the importance of our relationship with the land and nature as a reciprocal source of nourishment and sustenance. It tells us that in order to receive the land’s blessings, we also need to honor the land. Isn’t that ironic? We behave quite to the contrary …..this sacred animal is shot instead, with hormones & antibiotics & then mass produced like lemon drops on a conveyor belt in a most invasive, unethical, inhumane, & criminally dishonorable way, just to DIE a tragic death essentially & go overstock supermarket bins everywhere. It’s shameful. The Thanksgiving holiday has turned into a greedy money market of Turkey killing. It’s a sham disguised as a worthwhile celebration of thankfulness. We shouldn’t need a holiday to practice gratitude anyway. Not to mention, the whole traditional historic truth on what we are even celebrating on that day, the story of Thanksgiving, is a farce. We were only told a portion of the truth. Native American Indians were tortured, raped, burned alive, beaten & killed shortly after that original “feast” circa 1614. Their land was stolen from them, & they were taken as slaves. Check this out> THE REAL STORY OF THANKSGIVING by Susan Bates
I have always been a positive person. I give everyone the benefit of the doubt. Christ, I just wrote a book called “The Book of Beautiful Feelings!” I realize that we all associate fun-loving, family, friendly, romantic, cozy, happy connection, affection, togetherness, warm & fuzzy feelings….with all the countless preparations of meat & dairy products that we have shared & prepared over the lengthy decades of our lives. Our memory banks are stored with fond significant recollections of these food memories. In times past, the use of meat & dairy in the cultural rituals & traditions we shared with each other even so far as defined us on some level & reflected our quality of life experience. Holidays & celebrations of all kinds were built around decked out tables or extravagant feasts with meat & dairy so proudly displayed… after much hard intricate careful kitchen craftsmanship & work. Most celebratory feasts seem to always showcase an animal guest of honor browned & decorated & lifeless upon the lovely spread rich with side dishes likely infused with cheese, milk & butter. Meals built with meat & dairy are used to reward, recognize, reach, bless, impress or inspire people, especially in the culinary world. The rabbit hole goes deep. I am fully aware of that. All the beautiful feelings associated with these foods are actually strung quite boldly & fluently throughout my book. I pay special tribute to American traditions, food customs & warm memories that most of us relate to that include meat & dairy. I obviously wrote the book before I woke up to Veganism. But it is still all good. The book contains all the relevant features of us as an “American Culture” & there is no harm in the capturing of that essence. It is essentially where we came from, & we cannot just discount our history. It is a part of who we are & that is a beautiful thing. And, I feel blessed, because going forward, I will now be able to look back & say that I have experienced the best of both worlds…. And, I chose to stick with the Vegan lifestyle based on knowledge & experience.
As I was saying, I believe in the general goodness of humanity, I see the glass half full. I practice a life of gratitude & I would love to be able to sugar coat everything while wearing a sharp pair of rose-colored glasses. But, sometimes, ya just gotta say what has to be said…because it is the right thing to do. Revolutionaries, peacemakers, Nobel Peace Prize nominees, saints, prophets, gurus & great leaders were not docile inhibited people who were afraid to speak the truth in fear that it would tarnish their reputations, shatter perceptions, break belief systems, rules, laws, regulations, traditions or habits. Eg: Bono, Malala, Nelson Mandela, Bob Marley, Rosa Parks, Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Oprah Winfrey.
With that said, If I could picket outside in front of every single slaughterhouse nation & worldwide, I would spend my life waking up on the lawn of a different house of horrors every single day if I had to….just to wake up: EVERYONE ELSE. Not to mention the IMMENSE carbon footprint that factory farming is responsible for leaving. It is the #1 cause of climate change/global warming beyond ANY OTHER action or operation in the world. Should I repeat that?
I will not support the unnatural senseless, unnecessary murder of animals any longer. From this day forward, I will choose to be an animal rights advocate & will boycott any & all animal products within my own personal domain.
I will be the first to admit, that a Chef trained individual aspiring to go Vegan, like myself… will certainly be at odds with what they were taught with regard to traditional French cuisine, the history of food & all the several generations of classic techniques & traditions passed down as gifts to be cherished, & recipes to be treasured, persued, & practiced. I myself certainly am having an inner conflict. I am an adventurous explorer of all foods. Food is Art to me, & I have a sincere & well-developed palate of appreciation for all food groups & the endless variations of creative flavor, texture & combination that defines the Culinary world. Anthony Bourdain’s adventures across the globe to expose & explore all sorts of different cultural traditional cuisines, styles, street snacks & what not….is fascinating to me. I am an advocate for the Culinary fantasia that is inspiring, delicious, artful, creative, magical, alchemical, ritualistic, classic or nouveau & beautiful. But, by no means do I endorse what is happening on an industrial scale in our world & society at large. I believe that to partake in the indulgence of an animal is a very sacred & special privilege & should not be simply revered as a common commodity that you may just roll into any Walmart & buy for 2-20$ in the “factory possessed” meat dept.
When I was a Culinary student 12 years ago, one day, our Chef Instructors told us that we had to come to class the next day prepared to kill a live lobster. I was absent that next day.
As a Culinary Artist & food stylist, I am required to work with all types of ingredients. It is my job & duty as a food professional to have this skill set. We were taught that this is morally correct according to collegic standard & the American Education System with regard to a Culinary Arts program, degree, certificate or diploma.
Hunting for survival or Native American tactic & technique is one thing…A caged-free, free range chicken that lays eggs on the local family owned farm is acceptable to some extent once in a while, fishing can be a fascinating endeavor & experience on appropriate occasions. But, have you ever gone to an aquarium & visited the lobster tank? Well….I have. These guys are like giant prehistoric monster creatures, that seem to have the ability to communicate with their eyes through the glass. They are amazing & beautiful creatures that appear to be conscious actually. I do not believe they should be hurt, captured, harmed, or killed for food. It is simply not fair, moral, right or necessary to ever eat a lobster. Period.
Pescetarianism /ˌpɛskəˈtɛəriənɪzm/ (also spelled pescatarianism) or Pesco-Vegetarianism. It is the practice of following a diet that includes fish or other seafood, but not the flesh of other animals. Now, I just might be inclined to label myself accordingly if I must. But, I certainly will not ever choose to overindulge on the matter or ever eat a lobster. And, fresh-caught, unprocessed, nonfactory seafood will be my only optionEVER. So if you have such conditions as Hypoglycemia or Diabetes & your daily dietary requirements are to have mostly fruit, complex carbs & protein, this Pescetarian diet might be suitable. (refer to protein chart; click on protein guide; see complex carb list)
These whole plant foods are great sources of complex carbohydrates:
Whole grains and foods made from them, such as oatmeal, pasta, and whole-grain breads.
Starchy vegetables such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, and pumpkin.
Beans, lentils, and peas.
The Native Americans were beautiful human beings that celebrated the sacred nature of everything. From the rock on the ground, to the fire in the pit, to the rain, to the sea, to sleep, to sex, to survival, to the humane hunt & kill of any living creature that had to die for the purpose of human nourishment. That animal was respectfully surrendered. That is the way it should be done, if indeed it must be done at all.
Our society has crowned the over indulgence of dead flesh…KING of our food pyramid. That is hypocrisy of the strongest sort. It’s a wrong recommendation & a wrong ideal. It is a lie. It is NOT the healthy best most nutritious option & choice. And no longer do I believe that we have the right to even do such a thing! Why? it’s very simple. It is excessive, extremely violent, disrespectful to Mother Nature, greedy, lustful, gluttonous, & so goddamn UNNECESSARY for our survival. Not to mention, KILLING US ALL SLOWLY…via:
Plants predominantly contain an extensive abundance & variation of phytonutrients, whereas the phytonutrients contained in meat products are fewer, as well as not even worth the risk of potential collateral damage to our bodies in the long run.
a substance found in most plants which is believed to be beneficial to human health and help prevent various diseases.
In addition, a plant-based diet generally helps to minimize the consumption of Gmo’s, MSG, processed foods, artificial ingredients, harmful fat, cholesterol, & poisonous sugars which endanger the human body as opposed to nourish it, leading to sickness & disease. Not to mention… the following interesting example demonstrates how important it is for us to recognize that the food we eat becomes a part of us alchemically.
Fact: When a person donates say, a kidney to another person, the cells in that kidney are alive with the DNA that contains the memories of the donor. Studies show, that it is actually possible for the recipient to then experience emotional ties to the donor’s memories, simply because now he has the donor’s kidney melding with his own DNA, they integrate & mingle, & it truly is possible for the recipient to now experience the memory fragments contained in the cells of that organ.
When Deepak Chopra said: “We are what we eat” That is what he meant. He was simply saying that the energies of the living cells inside the particular food item that we choose to eat, are going to be inevitably transferred over not only to your body & digestive system, but also to your DNA, cell memory, neurons, and essentially acclimated to your life force energy…manipulating it accordingly. We do thenin truth, indeed become what we eat.
If a pig is screaming at the time of slaughter, in a state of fear & violent resistance, grief & torment… the toxic emotions will be inevitably stored in the pigs cellular DNA. No wonder why we continue to breed a race that continues to suffer, struggle & endure pain, sadness, & fear….BECAUSE WE CONTINUE TO EAT IT! It then becomes us.
When we fry that bacon up in the pan so innocently on Sunday morning & strategically place it next to the high fructose corn syrup smothered pancake & caged, non-organic chicken fetuses….whose hen mother was likely herded in an overcrowded pen, treated like shit, force-fed, stressed out, & shot with antibiotics……We are essentially feeding our loved ones toxic karma. What we were raised to believe is nourishment for our families is actually the complete opposite. Not only is dead flesh in fact dead as opposed to alive with life force energy… containing many toxic elements that contribute to heart disease & cancer…but, also its dead flesh is the harbinger of the likely experience of toxic emotion on some level. A significant amount of our experience of toxic human emotions could be directly related to the animals toxic cellular DNA memory during its imprisoned, herded, life & likely irrational, inexcusable, unnecessary, profane, immoral, painful, tragic, death. You get the picture. We are indeed….what we eat.
With that said, a plant-based diet is composed of mainly fresh, living, food options that contain vitality, living life force, natural vitamins & nutrients that exceed nutritional expectations. Consuming plant-based foods allows Mother Nature to pass the sacred gifts of all 4 life-giving elements over to us: Water; Air; Fire (Sun); Earth. When the cellular & molecular electric vibration of food that is plant-based & alive integrates with human DNA it is essentially blessing all the organs, blessing the body, blessing our vibration, blessing our health, wellness, & enhancing our human experience thereof. The superior alchemy of a plant-based diet is far more enchanting, energizing, nourishing, uplifting, elite & beneficial than any kind of omnivorous diet could ever possibly be. Period.
Cows, Pigs, ocean creatures have spirits & souls too. Not only do their bodies go through a series of unfortunate events when people capture & kill them, but their spirits get squeezed out of them with ungodly force. It’s disgraceful, deplorable & all of the above. All of the above doesn’t even cover it…actually.
I am so disgusted at how the vast majority of people in our modern day current society & pop culture just appear to accept such a false fascist based belief system without even question or research. What ever happened to individuality? Whatever happened to our ability to see beyond lies & manipulative brainwashing? We are not meant to be blind followers. We are creatures of light that were put here on Earth to rule it with kindness & grace. To have domain over all the Earth & its inhabitants is a powerful privilege & a sacred responsibility granted to humans for the purposes of harmony, health, wholeness & balance…not for the abuse of agriculture, animals & the elements… for the sole purpose of greed. That is unacceptable behavior on our part, as humans. I think we should seriously reconsider our approach to the acceptance of a dictatorship like this, endorsing false principles that the “powers that be” deem correct, proper, & honorable. There is NOTHING honorable in the murdering of an innocent creature. Nothing manly about eating a lifeless piece of dead flesh on a plate.
Meet Ralph 🙂 <<click here for a fun YouTube Vegan spin from a Strapping Young Strong Man. In this video, Ralph, a psychologist, life coach, alchemist from Infinite Waters gives us a survey perspective of what people report, after starting the 7-day Vegan challenge.
The acceptable belief that it is ethical to chemically induce, mass produce & then slaughter millions beyond millions of animals daily in our world, for justification’s dynamic duo of: unnatural mass human overconsumption & the almighty dollar……..Is not only absurd, but diabolical.
You would have to be complete evil to harm this beautiful animal for only the purpose of self-gratification & material gainHence: Diabolical.
Just like child abuse, just like rape, just like child pornography, just like human trafficking, just like slavery, just like terrorism, just like every single criminal act man’s government condemns. Animals have rights too. And the only thing that separates us from them, is the human ability to think about what we are thinking about. We are conscious creatures with the ability to choose, the freedom of will as they say. Just because every other species doesn’t have that feature, doesn’t make them less than valuable or lower their worth with regard to the eco-system. The fact that they have no free will, is actually more honorable, because all that really means, is that they have already passed through the gate of spiritual evolution, & now are in complete unflawed alignment with Universal law. They don’t need to think about it….they just act on the instinct of the higher mind for the good of all beings. period. No complexity in that, no drama, no argument, no resistance, just natural unadulterated freedom & flow. They are woven perfectly into the Divine design from the minute they are born to the minute they die. There is no such thing as malice or greed or hatred within the animal kingdom.
Humans were essentially endowed with the freedom of will & choice, for the sole purpose for us to have a dominant noble rulership over the Earth and all its inhabitants in a most harmonious zen-like fashion for the holy sole purpose of serving the greater good, the highest good of not only humanity, but nature, life & all of the Earth & it’s creatures.
People make excuses. People act like we NEED the protein that dead flesh contains. Or that we need the omega 3’s or the Iron, zinc or Vit D or calcium, in milk, eggs & seafood. But it’s NOT TRUTH.
We can get all those nutritional benefits 100 fold from a plant based diet. Period. No argument. No excuse.
People tend to call Vegans weird, or hippies, or they stereotype vegetarians as a weaker, less dominant brand of humans. But that’s all bullshit. Stereotypes & labels are such an injustice to the breed of people that are brave enough to change their habits by practicing a good bit of old-fashioned self-discipline, & who are brazen enough to stand up for what is our moral & ethical duty as human beings walking upon this earth. These people are leaders, good examples, shining representations of what a true good human looks like. Don’t let any false prophet bully your mind to the contrary. We were put here to protect & serve animals just as we would do for each other. To behave in a manner that is anything less is sheer corruption, not to mention a most severe violation to the cardinal rule of Divine countenance…”Treat others as you would want to be treated.” Luke 6:31 & Matthew 7:12.
Don’t you dare tell me that if Jesus showed up on this Earth today in a suit & tie with a great haircut….he wouldn’t be in the form of a top notch RockStar NYC Attorney with one bad-ass entourage for the representation of Animal Rights Activists. What would Jesus do? Fucking bring them all down in a Court of Law…til bills were passed, new laws were made & enforced in every state & district, slaughter houses were all shut down & the factory farming industry was put out of its misery. The death houses would no longer exist, the ghosts of all the slaughtered animals would be free to ascend into the light, no longer would we be spraying massive chemicals on endless fields of wheat & corn & vegetation for the purpose of feeding the over population of farm animals. The Agriculture Industry (Agribusiness) would be flipped upside down & local organic family farms would be restored back to good health if that is even possible. Our whole economy would revolutionize, & the hedonistic meat industry would be ostracized accordingly. The media would be compelled to tell the truth. Genetically modified foods would cease to exist because the chemicals would no longer be legal. There would be a significant economic boost from the natural organic vegan/vegetarian market, fresh produce & products. The energy & vibratory frequency of our planet would rise, reboot, rebalance & realign naturally. We would minimize sickness, disease, ADHD, depression, suicide, crime, war, addiction, abuse, violence, sin, sickness, & death. We would revolutionize the planet & elevate our human consciousness & status to a whole new next level. the greenhouse effect & global warming epidemic would subside & so would obesity, stress, unrest, imbalance, laziness, conflict, mental & physical illness.We would be a happier healthier better more brilliant race. Period.
That’s admirable, wouldn’t you agree? I would love to be able to say to my grandchildren’s children, that I lived in a generation that changed the whole game here on Earth, & I am proud to have been an integral participant in the movement to save the planet.
Seriously, Jesus needs to show back up here. We could use a modern spin on the whole outdated religious ruse of faulty, backward creeds & codes built on fear & control. We need a new example to follow, some new witty quotes to toss around, some new codes & creeds to model ourselves after & pass on to our children… that don’t take a big giant heavy misunderstood book to prove, called “Bible.” A fresh clear explanation of things that hasn’t been translated countless times in 70 different languages, through a whisper down the lane formula that constantly is misinterpreted in every possible way imaginable.
Maybe, I will just write one. The New Bible….channeled by JZapp….from the higher dimensions.
a male demon believed to have sexual intercourse with sleeping women.
a cause of distress or anxiety.
“debt is a big incubus in developing countries”
The insidious industrial incubus of factory farming & unnatural food mass production has been fucking us while we have been sleeping, for far too long.
