Veganism debunked

Here's a vid I just made, showing some very 'rational and persuasive' arguments for not being vegan. Oh yeah, along with some footage from slaughterhouses.

I think meat and dairy eaters need to see this stuff, so many of them live in a cosy fairytale world where their meat, milk and eggs just magically appears and they never get blood on their hands. I plan on making many more videos like this cause I think a person reconnected with the reality of the situation will at very…

Giving vegans a bad name

I met a girl a couple months ago who told me she was vegan. I was so happy I had a new vegan friend. 

Then it happened.

One of my girlfriends who takes a culinary class with her watched as she ate an entire chicken leg by herself during class. 

Last time I checked, chickens didn't grow on trees. 

And then she goes around preaching about animal rights and how much she just looooooves animals.…

I tried to be vegan but...

I've been hearing this a lot lately. People trying to become vegan/vegetarian but they just felt weak/lightheaded/depressed etc when they tried so they switched back. 

It's kind of pissing me off. When I made the transition I felt better than ever. Everyone else I know who has become vegetarian/vegan and stayed that way has said that they felt amazing. I just feel like their minds are simply creating excuses to go back to cruelty eating. 

And the worst of all…

A response to my well meaning friends who are urging me to eat animal products

  • "A response to my well meaning friends who are urging me to eat animal products:

  Thank you for your concern. I know you mean well, and I'm grateful that you have reached out. But there are a HUGE number of factors that you are not aware of in regards to my current situation and emotional health. Be careful of making diagnoses without a complete understanding of the the body, mind and the…

Off to a Slow Start.

So basically, as soon as I made this account, I had to take a temporary hiatus. I was on bed rest for about a month & wasn't able to go shopping in order to eat right. In that time, the little baby in my belly got really big. I started noticing a decrease in my appetite & a lot of nausea no matter what I ate. Once I was able to start eating right, there wasn't enough room for a whole meal of fruit (all of my organs are being squished). It would be near impossible for me to get enough…

An inspirational story about Percy Cerutty

Before today I had no idea who this person was... Percy Cerutty. But today I ve  read a topic on HCRV personalities who practiced this life style for more than 10 years and I've read a story about Percy.

wow! amazing man. well, i was always fascinated by eccentric persons, but he is more than just that. I'd like to know more about him or read his books. I suppose many of them are about running as he revolutionized it and I am not a runner , but anyway I would be very much…

OK, Contrary to popular opinion, I DO have feelings.

This has been bothering me since last week. I am now known as the "fruit girl" in my school since I can always be seen carrying a ton of fruit with me wherever I go. Everyone in my Chem class knows that I am a raw vegan and is fascinated by it. They love asking me questions about it.

Then the other day I brought about a kilo of tangerines to my class. Of course some everyone asked me if I was going to eat them all. When I…

Protein Myth. Do plants have enough protein?

this topic was discussed  many, many times, but I have a habit to do a research on my own :) just to know more about an issue and at the same time to go on with my education ;)

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that we obtain 5% of our calories from protein. This would mean that if you were a man burning 3000 calories per day, you would need 38 grams of protein.…

Earthings, pets, transitioning, and lots of food

Just watched what I could of Earthlings with my husband. I asked him what he thought of the movie. He said "I think it's all about the shock factor! They didn't need to see all that! We already know about this." I stated that that was exactly the point. Of course they wanna show us the bad side. I am glad they did too...because for the first time I realized the scale of the speciesism. I mean I knew that…

Fruit Parties...Oh My!

I can't believe I went to my first official fruit party this past Sunday and met with local 30badders for the first time!

Coincidentally, the fruit parties in my house have been super exciting lately.  Its kinda a tradition I started last year with my 10 y.o. sister-in-law and my 4-year-old daughter and I eating fruit before bed and just being super silly with it... making the peels into playthings, making silly faces. 

My sister-in-law lives in San Diego and we…

Life is Beautiful

I am so happy and thankful for everything I have. Just the fact that I am alive with loving and caring parents and am able to be a part of this world, to be able to love others and be loved in return. To be able to tell others how much I love them. To be able to grow and learn something new each and every day. To be able to breath. To be able to run. To be able to feel. To be able to see. To be able to hear. To be able to smell. To have food to eat. To have an education. To be able to…

Are raw food/ nutrition certifications worth it?

(This is in additiion to my reply to a question about the INN certification course.  I can't find it even though I entered my comment just under an hour ago.. sorry to mix this up...)

PS

I met Jack Morse (the gent who brought Walt Disney public, among other things). I was just staring out and was hired to install an elaborate custom home gym in one of his houses. I had what I called "Long Island's First (and only to this day 25 years later) Educational Fitness Store" It…

WORST GREEN DRINK EVER

IDK what to do. I made a quart (yes a quart) of my own invented green drink for dinner. I wasn't thinking while I was making it. I put an entire tray of asparagus in there. Don't follow my example. I can barely stomach it. And I LOVE green drinks.

Raw Vegan Hangout Time

As a 20 year old college student, you'd think that I'd be looking forward to turning 21 in this next month to drink and party until I can't remember my own. HA. as if. I'm getting really tired of going to parties and just being the guy there that's not having any "fun", cause theyre right, Im not. So, I made a solution, I just won't go, and I don't anymore. But the problem with that is that my friends are those people, people who I grew up with and met through school, without them, I really…

How to ripen fruits faster? (solution)

Easy, just put them in a closed brown bag or newspaper and wrapped them up. Give it 24 hours and your good, you'll see the difference. This is of course, if you live in the city and supermarkets provide you with green bananas and hard avocados.

This routine is an old one that we Hispanics from the Caribbean use a lot to ripen our fruits. I learned this from my father when I was younger.

Just wanted to share this ;)

 

(see the picture, those bananas weren't ready,…
