Especismo (para los que desconozcan su significado)- existencia de una discriminación moral basada en la diferencia de especie animal.

La ignorancia es la primera línea de defensa del especista, sin embargo es quebrantable por cualquiera con tiempo y determinación por conocer la verdad. La ignorancia ha prevalecido durante tanto tiempo solo porque la gente no quiere conocer la verdad. Deseamos continuar siendo ignorantes ante una verdad que nos podría producir culpabilidad. No se…

Almost Raw Vegan Peach Cheesecake

The weather is cooling and fall has crept in.  Usually it waits for Labor Day weekend. But not this year.  Even though it's sunny the mornings and evenings have been much cooler.  The peaches are done, I have the jars of sliced peaches, some dried and in the freezer, and then some just frozen and ready for smoothies or a quick cobbler in November. It was a tasty job. I've had peaches for dinner a couple nights this week. I'll be putting up tomatoes next, some this weekend and the rest next…

Opinions of GMO

There is obviously a lot of controversy surrounding genetically modified food. Curious as to some of your opinions!

Vegan remedies for migraines?

I've always had pretty severe migraines; I've had a lot less since becoming vegan, but they'll still come, and if I don't take medication, then sometimes I am incapacitated by them and can't even get out of bed. Does anyone else suffer from migraines? What do you use? Would prefer to not take medication at all.

When Do We Let Go of Our Ethics?

We stress so much importance that human beings are not superior to animals, it shocks me some people would suggest that animal right's tower above the rights of people. That in sending a message, we should ignore the methods of which we go about them, and take no responsibility, and guffaw about the rights of fellow human's like it's a big joke and we're all in grade school.
