Preparing the meat that we raised together as a family.
July 11th 2016
Atlanta, Georgia

This is our fourth year of running our backyard rabbitry. Our rabbits are cared for and loved. We have a great admiration and respect for the animal. Before we butcher our rabbits my children have learned to say, “Thank you for being here for us and for making us stronger, we will not waste your meat, you are now a part of us.” The children do not have any problems with the harvesting of the rabbits they help raise. They are excited and feel like they are contributing to the family. We believe this makes them more confident growing into the people they will become and more respectful to the environment they are growing within. There is something that has changed within us since we began raising our own meat. There is an understanding that is gained by being responsible for the lives that we end so we can continue. We are tighter as a family because we shoulder the reality of understanding how much dies to keep us alive. Past experience in sharing these particular endeavors that we engage in as a family lead me to believe that many of you reading this may find it unsettling, to say the least. We only ask that you try to understand that we are choosing not to participate in factory farmed meats. The meat that we harvest and eat in our house has been loved or, if hunted, has lived a real life.

We hope our latest family blog post finds you doing well and in the present moment with an open mind.

Most respectfully,

melaniepetite  asked:

I've been vegetarian for 2 years now and have recently made the switch to vegan. I've noticed a lot of my veggie "meats" are not vegan, in addition to that a ton of them are loaded with way more sodium than I realized. Do you have any specific brands that are low in sodium or alternatives so that I can still "beef" up my meals to be protein packed?

I don’t eat a lot of meat alternatives myself so I can’t really say which ones are low sodium, but I can definitely help you out on vegan options! 
- Gardein
*my #1 recommendation! They have some of the BEST meat substitutes in my opinion, and is 100% vegan and non-GMO
- Beyond Meat (all vegan)
- Sweet Earth Foods (some products are not vegan, so check the labels!)
- Tofurky
- Field Roast 
- Engine 2 and Hilary’s Eat Well products are more veggie-based, but they are also delicious! 

Also if you are looking for other protein sources, I love using tempeh or tofu in my meals! If you want to add more flavor, you can make a marinade for it or just buy a store-bought sauce and use that (like teriyaki or buffalo sauce!). You can also make your own seitan (or buy it) using vital wheat gluten. Seitan usually has tons of protein! 

Don’t forget that you can also get all of the protein you need by eating an abundance of beans, other legumes, grains, and veggies too :) If you like to add meat substitutes to your diet, by all means go for it - but you shouldn’t feel like you “have” to. 

Also, I just want to say it is awesome that you have made the transition to veganism <3 I am very proud of you and happy for you! Hopefully you found this helpful x 

Ethics and Values in Organic Farm

Prompt 1: While we are at the Farmer Producer Association market/tasting, look/listen for stories, examples, artifacts, and practices that represent the ethical views of the organization. What values are represented through this tour experience? 

The Farmer Producer Association places a lot of energy in staying true to the association’s ethics and values. Some of the ethics that became evident to me during my time at schwäbisch hall, were the ethics of human health, animal rights, and earth preservation. The Farmer Producer Association believes that humans should have access to clean, non-GMO meats and produce. They also believe that the animals involved in farming should also have rights and conditions that are up to high standards. For example, they are currently working on a proposal for the UN involving the animal rights of pheasants. Lastly, The association believes in protecting the earth. During the presentation, Hardy (our guide) explained that if we are going to take from the earth, we must give back to it. 

Values are the way in which these ethics manifest themselves. For example, Rudolph and other organic farmers work hard and spend extra money to reach the high standards that qualify their products as being organic. Oftentimes they even take it a step further by using Demeter farming. This is even stricter than organic farming. They do this so that can offer clean and organic products to consumers. As organic farmers, they are also concerned about animal welfare. They are dedicated to keeping the animals (mostly pigs and cows) as relaxed and stress-free as possible. For example, livestock must be transported by their owners and within 3 hours of leaving that farm due to stress that could cause the pig to release bad hormones.  In addition to these things, the Farmer Producer Association also values being eco-friendly and preserving the environment. They actively participate in this by refusing to use products that contain pesticides and other poisons. This, in turn, is better for the environment and the animals in the surrounding areas. The Association also shows value to human sustainability and development with the fact that they have made it a point to help people in less developed countries farm up to organic standards. 

These values are important for the future of the food industry because the global market has become increasingly more focused on the money making aspect rather than the quality of the product. Organic farmers show that they truly care about their surroundings through their ethics and values. 

this is the kind of bullshit I mean when I say that how people treat reproductive health pisses me off more than having health issues in the first place

“you have a hormonal imbalance resulting in fluid-filled sacs growing on your ovaries as well as a possible insuline resistance which is super unladylike so now you have to reclaim your womanhood

like get off my dick Deborah this was supposed to be an article informing me on what to eat so I can stay as healthy as possible

but what did I expect, the same site also told me to eat organic meat because “gmos and pesticides may mess with your hormones”

Savory spicy rabbit loin.
December 12, 2016

Rabbit loins browned in bacon fat, The pan was de-glazed with a pale ale, then the rabbit was pressure cooked with carrot, onion, potato, pepper, tomato, and a heaping load of shiitake mushroom. It was served with brown rice, splash of apple cider vinegar, kicked up a notch with a garlic chili paste. Sided with a seaweed and fresh herbs.

With as much experimentation as we do with cooking it is not uncommon to miss the intended flavor set. But, we nailed this one. The flavors were so balanced and the spice from the chili paste worked so well with the tender rabbit loin and fresh herbs.

I hope our latest post find you guys staying warm and excited about what it is you’re doing.

Respectfully,

K

  • Sagittarius: its pizza, why is everyone so picky?
  • Capricorn: I'm with sag
  • Aquarius: I hate anchovies but I have to different and original so I'm gonna eat them
  • Pisces: pizza? I thought we were getting Taco Bell!

We harvested a goat.

A local family farm had an issue with their male goat. It became aggressive towards the kids. They asked us if we would be kind enough to take the goat off their hands. The goat was only a little over a year old and fed good organic foods all his life. I saw this as an opportunity to bag some great meat and demonstrate to our children how to harvest, butcher, and prepare a delicious goat.

As the children fed him some carrots to distract him I tied the leash onto a big heavy rock under its neck. Then I started to pet the goat, straddled the goat, placed my left hand over the back of the head, placed my right hand deep under its throat holding my knife. I told the children to stand back and severed both arteries in one cut. The goat went quickly with little pain. Within several minutes we said a prayer to thank the goat for making our family stronger.

We will do a follow-up post with our dry aging and cooking methods on this goat.

P.s. If you were wondering what the goat was wearing on its head… It’s a red bandanna. I put it there because, even though the horns were trimmed, I do not want any of the children getting hurt. This goat was a bit aggressive and loved to do the head bump thing.

We hope this post finds you healthy, happy, and doing what it is you believe you need to do.

Respectfully,

K

“We’re really trying to create for-profit entities that are making animal products without animals. If someone is hesitant to embrace the technology I would ask them first to educate themselves on what GMOs are to obtain a better scientific literacy because if you’re afraid of GMOs I’m not sure you would be on board with this because you’re not concerned with data and science and what the facts say. You’re appealing to some kind of thing you’ve been marketed to or some branding thing.”  - Isha Datar, Executive Director of New Harvest, a nonprofit focused on advancing  technologies to more sustainably and affordably feed a growing population

I want to become vegan but I really like chicken :c so far I don't eat beef and pork I wanted to ask if there is an eaiser way to give up chicken or any supplements food that is like it please help :o

Vegan Alternatives to Chicken

Stupid Vegans

The most important part about being vegan is reducing environmental impact and people (vegans) who solely focus on ending animal cruely as their purpose and hate on vegetarians and every other joe smoe who eats an egg here and there (and may even be making more of a difference than them while doing it) are literally so backwords its scary. First of all haven’t we establishled yet that being that fucking extreme about something to get your point across doesn’t work? Don’t get me wrong, I am an animal lover. I am not ignorant to animal cruelty and I do not support it in any way, but is that the first point I am going to bring up in a debate about veganism? No. Because it doesn’t take a genious to realize how fucked up the world already is and that people are almost completely desensitized to violence and gore. We watch humans kill each other on the big screen for entertainment all the gime. Why should I expect people to be moved by a photo of a slaughtered cow? I think on the hole people are aware of by what means their food got onto the plate and they don’t care because thats how they grew up and were told was right. But it is about more than slaughter. We are literally talking about the end of the world as we know it if we continue down this path. Pollution. Clear cutting. Poverty. Slavery. Depletion of resources. Time to shift the focus people. Guess what? That vegetarian you endlessly berated for being a cruel monster might very well have a smaller footprint than you and in the end have caused less harm to animals than youself. You are not a fucking super hero because you are a vegan. I see you buying your GMO fake meat. Driving around in your car. Buying excessively packaged materialistic bullshit. Supporting companies like PETA that thoughtlessly mail out billions of stickers and paper flyers and tshirts every year thag will all ultimately end up as GARBAGE so they can make a buck. So fuck you if you think you are so above everyone because you THINK you don’t harm animals. Chances are, you are still an over indulgent, wasteful idiot and are doing more harm than you actually care to know.

alegagax said: Eating IS the problem actually. When you eat processed foods, chemically altered foods, GMOs, meats and all of this crap food it affects your brain and its capability of processing information and access higher realms. My advise, do more research
~~~~
You entirely just fueled my point, believing food is linked to dogma is a ridiculous notion based on psychological thinking. It is the energy you are placing behind food. It is the same way with money, if you believe money is bad, guess what you won’t attract money. If  you hate love, you won’t attract love. If you feel food is poison to your health due to fear, your body will react back. Your body is MADE of chemicals so don’t even begin to tell me all chemicals are bad for you. 

It doesn’t matter what food and diet you are eatting, it does NOT hinder your spiritual progress.
If i eat gmos i am not cut off from accessing the higher realms and enlightenment. If i eat meat I am not cut off from accessing my higher self and expanding my “light body”.  If i eat processed chemically bound food my kundalini will magically stop because my energy is dense from eating dense foods. That’s bullshit. 

Nothing external can stop an internal journey of spirit. I think it comes down to a level of common sense, listen to your body, your personal needs, eat a healthy diet and you’ll thrive. Sure it is great to eat organic, when i lived alone i was vegetarian and strictly ate organic vegetarian foods only for years then i got pregnant, I found out i was protein deficient and for my personal health i had to eat meat. I also had to suddenly shop on a budget which meant limiting my organic foods because organic food is damn expensive when you have to supply food for your entire family. I actually felt guilty because i had to change my food choices but then i realized how ridiculous that actually is. We should not be criticizing other people’s lifestyle choices. If you want to be vegan, vegetarian or a meat eater more power to you. It’s the dogma that is ridiculous.
I had a healthy pregnancy and a healthy child, it didn’t remotely do anything to my body besides nourish me.
Did it stunt my spiritual progress at all? No. Was i still able to communicate with higher realms, understand the dimensions and be a spiritual person? Yes. Did it stop my kundalini awakening? definitely not. Did it suddenly block me from seeing energy, being an energy reader and everything that i just went through for YEARS? No. Did it suddenly change my pineal gland? no. 

It doesn’t matter if you choose to be vegan, vegetarian or a meat eater that is not the point, but if you start blaming food for what is causing lack of spiritual enlightenment and blocking your access to higher realms. You are literally linking food to dogma instead of just acceptance for what food is, nourishment. It is the energy we place behind food. Not the food itself. Food is just food. You are the creator here, your projection of what you are thinking is what fuels into your reality.  if you believe food is poison, psychologically your body will think so, if you believe food is nourishment then your body will reciprocate. 

When you think the above mentality, you are linking food to dogma. 
This is all just fear tactics.

Don’t believe every article you read.
Think for yourself.
