This is where your milk comes from. There is no editing or guise to mislead. I took this photo, I didn’t get it from an ‘extreme’ animal rights website or 'fake news’ article. These are the udders of a cow leaving the dairy industry for the slaughter of the meat industry.
These are the same udders that have been producing milk for you for the past 3-5 years… Gross, right?
Now imagine a cup full of almonds, soy, hemp, cashews, hazelnuts, rice… These are the same goodies that produce all the delicious and healthier plant-based milks out there.
Seriously people… Right now, my goal is to spread awareness. This is just gross. No one should be drinking cow milk without knowing where it really comes from.
I guess how depends on why you’re going. Either way though go at your own speed. If you stress yourself out you’re most likely gonna fail. Can cut things out slowly or drop everything at once. Remember why you want to go vegan.
Some cosmetics and misc links (not everything from some of these companies/sites are vegan do some research/write-emails)-(x)(x)(x)(x)(x)(x)(x)(x)(x)
You’ll realize how ignorant people are, like not always in a whats that mean way in a holy shit wow people suck way. But..a lot of the time it rubs off on other people and sometimes the people around you may question their lifestyle choices and go vegan or vegetarian too, or just eat a lot less meat. When I went vegetarian then vegan my girlfriend went with me and a friend eventually. No one buys dairy milk in my house now and my dad and niece use my vegan butter/milk and faux meats sometimes (mostly because cheaper than meat). It spreads. Inform people. Ignore rudeness but educate. Remember that most of society is still brainwashed. We do not need animal products.
Veganism is not just about animals. These industries are hurting the planet, human health and keeping the hungry hungrier. Remember what’s important and it’s easy and rewarding.
Classes are finally over so I am celebrating this morning with one of my favourite breakfast: OATMEAL 🍓the weather is getting warmer, the snow has melted & everyone seems to be enjoying spring’s beginning 💐🌸 for the blueberry oatmeal you will need to bring to a boil 1 cup of oatmeal, 2 cups of water, a handful of blueberries, 1 teaspoon of chia seeds & agave nectar and a drop of vanilla extract; to top it off i had no blueberries left so i opted for a tablespoon of peanut butter ☺️ hemp hearts & almonds 🎈
Creamy breakfast smoothie cups to give you energy for the day!

Let me feed you: Chia Hemp Pudding with Açaí Sorbet, PB, Macadamia Nuts + Frozen Blueberries.
You have to really love hemp to appreciate this pudding. It has a very distinct flavor. Many folks who are new to this lifestyle may not like it. But it’s oh-so good for you. And once you get the hang of introducing new nourishing foods into your regimen things like hemp begin to taste gooooood.
Chia Hemp Pudding
1 cup spring water
¼ cup chia seeds
3 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tbsp almond butter
1-2 tbsp maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like it)
Blend the water, hemp seeds, almond butter and syrup until frothy. Pour hemp mylk into a bowl and add chia seeds. Whisk until incorporated and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Whisk again and transfer to a serving cup. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
For açaí ice cream I simply blended 2 scoops (about 1 cup) of Açaí Roots sorbet with 1 tbsp of peanut butter. Next, I folded in about ½ cup of frozen blueberries. I then topped the açaí sorbet over the chia pudding and sprinkled chopped macadamias.
heat up 1 cup plant milk (I like almond, hemp or coconut best for this), ½ tsp coconut oil (optional) and ½-1 tsp turmeric paste. take off heat and stir in maple/rice malt/agave syrup to taste. enjoy:)
turmeric paste: -½ cup water -¼ cup turmeric powder -½ tsp ground black pepper mix ingredients and heat up in a sauce pan on medium heat while stirring until paste thickens, pour into jar, let it cool and keep in fridge for up to a week!
fun fact: by mixing turmeric with black pepper together, you increase your body’s absorption of the turmeric by 2000%
It’s never been easier to avoid dairy, thanks to an ever-expanding
array of plant-based milks: Rice, soy, hemp, oat, coconut, almond,
macadamia, hazelnut, cashew.
But some people can’t drink some of
those milks due to nut or soy allergies. Some aren’t good for the
environment: Many words have been written about the water that almond milk production wastes. Women may be concerned about the estrogen-like compounds in soy. And alternative milks can be lacking in certain vitamins and nutrients, like protein.
pea milk, the newest nondairy beverage on the block. It’s vegan, nut
free, soy free, lactose free and gluten free. It’s better for the
environment than almond milk. And it has more protein and calcium than
other alternative milks.
