Best Speech You Will Ever Hear – Gary Yourofsky TheAnimalHolocaust

Gary Yourofsky’s entire inspirational speech on animal rights and veganism held at Georgia Tech in summer of 2010. Listen to this amazing speaker who will blow away the myths, fill your mind with interesting facts, and help you make ethical choices for a healthy heart and soul. His charismatic preachy style is one of a kind – a must-see for anyone who cares about nonhuman animals or wishes to make the world a better place.

New recipes – ex-meat dishes

chilli without carneOne of my favourite dishes, tasting even better since I stopped eating meat, is chilli. I now use lentils instead of minced meat. It can be served with rice, tortilla crisps (chips) or garlic bread and a side salad. The recipe is, of course, on Your Instinct in Recipes section:

Another recipe which I re-discovered as a vegetarian/vegan is falafel. This recipe below is for burger-shaped falafels and can be served like any other burger. I like mine in a wholemeal pita bread with a bit of salad and some sauces/dips such as tomato chilli salsa, guacamole and tahini. You can also add some sliced fresh and/or pickled vegetables.

laughIf you have decided to stop eating meat/reduce meat consumption that’s great and I’m very happy for you.
It is not an easy switch, in practical terms, and requires a lot of determination and patience. Mentally, you are already there, you have made your choice, now you just have to stick to it.

Couple of aspects you need to be prepared for (some of them may not apply to you):

You have the right to be different. Continue reading
