Veganism: Be the change. Go vegan. (Graphic version)






Vegan facts, definition, philosophy and spirituality. Information on why you should try the vegan diet and philosophy. Why should you be vegan? Is it an unhealthy or a healthy diet? This is an inspirational and informative vegan video featuring my four vegan heroes: Tim Shieff, Melanie Joy, Phillip Wollen and Gary Yourofsky.


Non-graphic version

I would very highly recommend checking out “The World Peace Diet” by Will Tuttle, which may help you better understand the issues. It is the best book about veganism and the connection between all forms of violence and exploitation which I know of.

(Thank you for that information, Mark.)

when we stop, take a breath
what do we see.
do we open our eyes and
embrace true humanity.
do we show respect for
all beings here.
do we uphold what
we hold dear.
when we inhale, exhale
and see what good we
can do.
so simple it is.
just up to me
and you♥

      Oh, I know, I completely agree, dearest. It is very hard for me to watch – almost impossible. But I, too, know it is important. Thank you, sweetie. Hugs to you. .

    I decided to watch the second video but after having to look away four times stopped it at 1 minute 30 seconds! How can the world not realise what is going on! 😦 I have been vegetarian for over 25 years and I have been trying to follow a vegan diet for a couple of months…your blog looks like just the info I need, thank you! 🙂

      I know how difficult it is – it is heartbreaking and haunting! I wish all could watch these factual depictions and understand that animals are sentient beings who should never be subjected to such horrors – that is not their purpose. Your veganism is commendable, you care always welcome here! Thank you.
