I have a very special recipe for you guys today ! These super healthy gluten free and vegan peanut butter brownies are requested all the time by my family ☺️ Peanut Butter brownies :

*500 grams of canned chickpeas.
* ½ cup peanut butter (or nut butter of choice)
* 3 tablespoons of natural sweetener (agave syrup, maple syrup, coconut syrup)¼ teaspoon baking powder
* ½ teaspoon baking soda
* 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips + keep some to sprinkle on top

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a baking dish with parchment paper.
2. Drain and wash the chickpeas, they should make some sort of foam
3. In a high speed blender or a food processor blend the chickpeas. Now it looks like hummus but don’t worry !
4.  Add the peanut butter, sweetener, baking soda and pulse.
5. Pour the mixture into a bowl and fold in the chocolate chips.
6. Spread the batter into the baking dish and now’s the time to sprinkle the top with the remaining chocolate chips.
7. Bake for 25 minutes
8. Allow to cool for at least 20 minutes before cutting it.

Seriously though, go vegan.

Eating animals and their products is not healthy for you, it’s not good to stuff your body with hormones. It is not good to drink puss filled milk which is meant allow a baby calf to grow into a full sized calf, you don’t need that in your body. You don’t need to be eating butter when there are SO many vegan alternatives that taste exactly the same. You don’t need to wear the skin of another creature. You don’t need to support the industries that are throwing male chicks into grinders alive. You don’t need to worry about protein when eating animals is giving you too much and there are options like leafy greens and beans and rice. You don’t need to eat the flesh of another creature, they make cruelty free “meats”. You don’t need to destroy the environment when on a vegan diet you can save 1,100 gallons of water, 45 pounds of grain, 30 square feet of forest, 20 lbs equivalent of CO2 EVERY DAY. You don’t need to kill dolphins and turtles as bicatch of overfishing. You don’t need to only love and support your cats and dogs when you can love and support every animals. You don’t need to turn a blind eye to cruelty. 

You are strong, you have a mind that can think and process information, use it. Go vegan and make a difference.

anonymous asked:

please explain how milking a cow harms the cow

We artificially inseminate the female, repeatedly and forcefully, often with an instrument called the “rape rack” or otherwise a mans bare hand shoved inside her

This is done because - like female humans - female cows only produce milk (lactation) when they are pregnant, as it is food for their baby. We force them to be pregnant, carry a child, give birth and then snatch it away immediately because we make a profit from exploiting their bodies.

The newborn babies, if female, suffer the same fate as their mother. If male, they are sent to be killed and eaten. That breastmilk, designed to grow a calf as large and as rapidly as possible, is stolen and bottled to be sold.

All because we have brainwashed our society into thinking baby cow growth fluid is designed for human consumption and we are too lazy or stubborn to reach two inches over and pick soy/almond/oat/coconut/hazelnut/hemp milk instead.

When people roll their eyes, or chuckle under their breath at vegans, I remember this quote:

“All truth passes through three stages.

First, it is ridiculed.

Second, it is violently opposed.

Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”

- Arthur Schopenhauer

The activist of every single social justice issue, whether about slavery, segregation, women’s suffrage, police brutality, lgbtq discrimination, etc. have been accused of being too idealistic, too sensitive, or even delusional. This is not a new phenomenon. No one has ever sparked change by going along with the status quo. One day people won’t think we’re being too sensitive, they’ll wonder how they were ever so calloused.
