Getting overly excited about food as per usual with my perfect Mamaw! She was the grand photographer behind this lens & goodness gracious she thought there was NO WAY my Black Bean Burger from @indyfto could be good😂. _
💚She's never had any kind of faux-meat burger before! I laughed at her reaction and just waited for the food to come because I knew she could be whistling a new toon soon.. AND WHAT DO YA KNOW.. When she tried a bite her eyes light up with surprised-approval!!
🦋She went on to say my bean burgers aren't nearly as bad as they ~sound~ lol
🌱That's what we call progress folks!!
🌎Side note: burger had black beans, rice, avocado, house-pickled jalapeños, lettuce, tomatoes, corn relish, horseradish. & Good ole grilled veggies on the side
It doesn't make sense to be outraged by this and sympathise with these animals to then sit down at your next meal and eat animal flesh while convincing yourself it lived a happy life and wanted to end up inside your stomach.
No animal wants to die, whether it be here in this video or at your local "humane" slaughterhouse.
And this is what hollow and insecure people like the #Kardashians#Rihanna#JLo#KanyeWest and more are supporting.
Follow/Repost @a_lallie: "I've posted about this woman before. Her full quote is actually: "I have no sympathy for the animals that are about to be killed. On the contrary I feel a deep satisfaction" 😒 .
What must have happened in her life to make her this cold, cruel and heartless? The fur trade is barbaric. RIP to that poor silver fox in the photo who is now dead and being worn as somebody's #SilverFoxFur coat (click the tag to see) 💔 .
I believe that humans are good at heart but many have lost their way, as no baby is born evil. All babies are born innocent but they somehow get their compassion and empathy for others conditioned out of them.
However I then see animal abusers like this (not to mention child abusers, rapists, murderers etc) and think 'they're not even human, they're just monsters'. How do we explain it? Are they a product of their society or are they wired differently? How can a woman who looks like a nice person be so evil at heart and devoid of kind feeling and emotion that she actually feels a 'deep satisfaction' when animals are tortured, killed and turned into coats?
I don't understand it but then again I will never be able to relate to the heart or mindset of such a 'person' because my heart and mindset are all about love, compassion, kindness, humanity, justice, equality and peace for all beings #BeKindToAnimals#FurIsDead#WearYourOwnSkin#CompassionOverFashion

#Maketheconnection#GoVegan 🌱💚🎉 Great news: Vegans can now get cheaper life insurance!
There are many studies showing how a vegan diet cuts the risk of various diseases and now insurance companies are catching on too.
One insurance company offering vegans lower life insurance rates is US-based HealthIQ, and they go into detail as to why those following plant-based diets deserve to pay less for life insurance:
The majority of the top ten causes of death in the United States have a direct relationship to diet and can be protected against by the vegan lifestyle: cardiovascular disease (CVD) at number one, cancer at number two, stroke at number four, Alzheimer’s at number six, diabetes at number seven and kidney disease at number nine.
1) Lower risk of hypertension: According to a 2012 study published by Public Health Nutrition Journal, vegans have a 63% lower risk of hypertension than non vegetarians.
2) Lower risk of cancer: According to a 2016 study in the Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition, vegans have a 15% lower incidence of all types of cancer, 34% lower risk of female-specific cancer and 22% lower risk of colorectal cancer.
3) Lower Risk of Diabetes: According to a 2009 study published in Diabetes Care Journal, vegans have a 49% lower risk of type 2 diabetes.
4) Lower Risk of Alzheimer's: According to The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association, a diet focused on extra leafy green vegetables, fiber, fruits and berries is associated with a 53% reduced incidence of Alzheimer's disease, particularly in those predisposed.
5) Lower Risk of Cardiovascular Disease: According to a 2013 study published by Journal of the American Medical Association, vegans have a 9% lower risk of cardiovascular disease compared to meat eaters.
And an additional bonus: vegans who weightlift or exercise regularly receive even cheaper rates.

Just saw this online. Apparently the family "borrows" cows to teach their children how to raise animals. This child cared for this beautiful animal, showed her at the state fair in Iowa and will return her to a dairy farm in the next few weeks. After falling in love with her and having a nap like this with her?! What is wrong with people?!?!? #maketheconnection#loveanimalsdonteatthem#iowastatefair2017#whatiswrongwithyou
It's finally here guys! Mindful Alignment is launched on YouTube and I've uploaded my first video to my "Why Vegan?" series. I have a lot of content coming, so get ready! .
This video is about COGNITION. Are you interested in knowing how our brain works? Ever wonder why some people are so damn stubborn, even when they have facts, they just won't listen? Theirs a reason to this, and it's not just because they're an asshole.
Please subscribe and show some support. Link in bio!

Sound up! Beautiful intelligent humpbacks bubblenetting for lunch! 🐋💦(Watch til the end for rainbows!) Did you know humpbacks work as a skillfully structured team to catch their lunch? 🐠
Since they know attacking fishies is likely to disperse them, the whales work together taking different roles; some swim beneath the fish in ever shrinking circles, blowing air bubbles as they go causing bubbles to rise creating a "net," stunning fish so the whales can come up and gobble down hundreds or thousands in a single gulp.😮
Others dive deep to ensure fish are driven upwards, and some make loud vocal souls and slap their fins against the water to help herd & stun the little fishies 🐟🐟🐟
Teamwork is passed on generation to generation as a part of their culture ♥️ How amazing is nature?! Thank you for this stunning capture @alisciayoung @richardsidey 🙌🏽
I'm in LOVE with these animals. All animals. And with over 56 billion animals being slaughtered every year (not even including fish and other sea creatures) you better believe that I will question you. Why? Why continue to eat them when the human body doesn't need anything from them?! I've heard excuse after excuse after excuse and the only thing I get from it is that it's more convenient for you. But what about them? Do the lives of these amazing animals actually mean nothing to you? 🐮🐷🐣🐤🐔🐥🦀🐟🐓🦃🐄 #openyourheart#govegan
The happiness of this little one. 😊 #Repost @animalangels444 (@get_repost)
Pig thanks his rescuer for saving him from the slaughter! Now this is LOVE 🐷💕 .
This amazing human actually got arrested for 'stealing' a pig even though he was really just liberating a beautiful sentient being from a concentration camp. As I always say, just because something is 'normal' or 'legal' doesn't make it moral.
I've no doubt people who eat #bacon , #sausage , #ham , #porkchops will feel HAPPY watching this video and will feel relieved that this pig is safe but can't you see that you're literally the villains of these stories? This hero had to save this pig from you and your demand to feast on his flesh and forget about it five minutes later for a meal you don't even need to survive. In fact a meal that will be detrimental to your health.
I know it's a harsh truth to hear but it's something that has to be said to help you #MakeTheConnection so that we can all live in a kinder world. Please don't continue to turn a blind eye to their screams and cries. Let today be the first day of the rest of your life.
You are a GOOD person born into a cruel, conditioned world but you are personally responsible for becoming more ethical than the society you grew up in #BeTheChange#ChooseLove#VeganForTheAnimals#PeaceBeginsOnYourPlate and in your heart 💚🌱 .

There are three general types of zebra in Africa. I identified Mystery as a mountain zebra due to the horizontal strips on her haunches. Did you know that a zebra's strips are much like a fingerprint in which no two are exactly alike? Zebras in the wild are known to travel up to 1,800 miles during their migration for food and are capable of knocking out a hyena with a single kick.
It was such a privilege to feed this beautiful gal some morning snacks. She is just spectacular to observe. 😍😍🙏🏽🍌
The mountain zebra only has a population of about 9,000 adults left, making them even more valuable in the black market. Cattle ranching and poaching threatens their habitat & existence more than their natural predictors. She is not a trophy or an object to place in a large-scale concrete zoo or children's petting zoo. I remember doing an Outcall massage years ago and having to set my table up on top of a real zebra skin run and I felt like throwing up. Why?! A rug?? I was heartbroken. People, please use some compassion and common sense before doing or buying or going.... this is a somebody, not a thing.
If she isn't free to roam the African plains, she deserves a safe, happy life with lots of land and @thesurfandturfsanctuary has provided her just that.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful girl with us 💜🙌🏿
•if you consciously treated/interacted with each animal like you want to be treated I bet your behavior would change real fast• they deserve better - let's try not to let them down. ❤️ Friends ❤️

"Libertar os animais não é um crime é justiça"
@wes_omar este cara surpreendente do vídeo foi preso por 'roubar' um porco, que estava em um campo de concentração. .
Como alguns dizem, só porque algo é "normal" ou "legal" não é moral. .
Eu não tenho nenhuma dúvida de que as pessoas que comem #porcos#bacon , #feijoada , #salsicha , se sentirão felizes de ver este vídeo e saber que este porco está seguro e não foi morto, porém como essas mesmas pessoas não conseguem ver que são literalmente os vilões destas histórias?
Depois de alguns minutos que as pessoas assistirem esse vídeo, já estarão novamente prontas para comer animais em suas refeições. Refeições com pedaços de animais, e isso não é necessário para você sobreviver.
Na verdade é uma refeição que será prejudicial para a sua saúde.
Eu sei que é uma verdade difícil de ouvir, mas é algo que tem de ser dito para que você #façaaconexão e assim todos possamos viver em um mundo mais amável. .
Por favor, não continue de olhos fechados e ouvidos tampados para os gritos e choros dos pobres animais.
Inicie hoje o seu primeiro dia livre de carne, livre de morte de inocentes, indefesos e sencientes animais.
Você é uma boa pessoa nascida em um mundo cruel e condicionado, mas você é o único responsável por ser mais ético do que a sociedade em que você foi criado.
Seja vegano e salve vidas💚🌱

@Regrann from @al_amorata - “Sure, you can come and take pictures. We don’t have any secrets here, and you will have a very special view of the sex life of breeding bulls nowadays,” Josef Miesenberger, head of the “artificial insemination” station in Hohenzell, Austria, told photographer Leonhard Foeger.
The law recognizes breeding as an exception to bestiality AS LONG AS the farmer does not get any enjoyment from it. If he did, the act could be criminally prosecuted as bestiality. But since it is done in the name of commerce, it is legal, nonconsensual sexual contact. In other words, the law protects artificial breeding as a “necessary standard agricultural practice” and as an exception to the normal right of the animal not to be sexually violated. In doing so, the law essentially ignores the animal’s suffering, distress and pain associated with breeding. Without artificial breeding, all the cheese, milk, ice cream, steak, pork, turkey, bacon and hamburger as we know it today, would not be available.

WARNING DISTURBING FOOTAGE
🦆OMG I just did one of my most challenging rescues yet. While I've sadly seen a lot worse, this one was both physically and mentally challenging.
🦆In the beginning I at least had access to her on the side of a small creek, but when she flew off over a two meter high school fence, designed not to let anyone in or out without permission, I started to doubt myself. I couldn't get access and the duck could fly...so I decided to call it off and went back to my car.
🦆I was looking at her through the fence as I drove away standing there in obvious pain and decided I would give it one more try and so I had to find someone on the school grounds who was there after hours to let me in. When I finally had access I went straight down to the oval and took my time approaching her very slowly and cautiously. After a couple of attempts I couldn't believe I had finally caught her and so of course I drove her straight to the vets.
🦆I am not sure if the vets will be able to amputate her injured leg, which we think was caused by a car accident, and release her, but either way, she will no longer be suffering🙏🏼
🕊I originally took this footage thinking I had NO chance of catching her on my own, so I would pass the details onto a WIRES bird coordinator. The reason I wanted to share this was because even when I wanted to give up, I didn't!
