One of the things that I love best about my vegan lifestyle is connecting with other folks who are passionate about living compassionately.
Becky Striepe My name is Becky Striepe (rhymes with “sleepy”), and I am a crafts and food writer from Atlanta, Georgia with a passion for making our planet a healthier, happier, and more compassionate place to live. One of my long-time favorites is Choosing Raw: Gena covers raw and cooked vegan food, medicine, health issues, and all sorts of vegan products from a really smart, ethical standpoint.
For everyone with children in their lives – support, insights, resources for making vegan choices. While there are plenty of resources for recipes, my new site (and blog) have a focus on how to transition to and maintain a healthful vegan lifestyle – for the animals, the environment and for your body! Eat, Drink Better is part of the Important Media network of blogs working to make the world a better, greener place.
It’s been hovering in the upper 90s here in Atlanta, and weather like this makes me crave ice cream like no other.
While staring at the frozen foods, I realized that despite reviewing vegan ice creams for weeks and weeks, I’d somehow managed to not pick a soy-based brand the entire time! This brand was a noticeably softer than the other pints I’ve tried, and it melted a bit faster. If you want to give this ice cream a whirl, check out Turtle Mountain’s store locator to find a pint!
I’ll agree that some soy-based desserts leave an unappetizing aftertaste, but ice cream seems to get excluded from that horror! The powder can be purchased at many health food stores, either in white (purified with filler added) or green(powdered leaves and a sharper licorice taste).
I was not expecting the bounty of raw chip goodness that arrived on my doorstep a week or so later. The raw leafy kale chips reminded me a lot of kale chips you’d make in the oven, but they make theirs by dehydrating their kale. The one way I really dug them was in vegan nachos – covered in vegan cheese, then baked in the toaster oven until they start to brown ever so slightly. Getting those eight glasses of water per day can be a little bit tricky, especially if you’re not a fan of plain water. Even if you love drinking water, sometimes it’s nice to mix things up with something a little bit more fun. Red Bull has agreed to pay consumer $13 million to settle the Red Bull false advertising class action suit.
Consumers allege that Red Bull is no more effective than a cup of coffee or a caffeine pill.

NPR reported today that The Yulin Dog Meat Festival is going on as scheduled, despite international protest. Why is eating a dog or horse considered taboo, while most people eat pig and cow meat without a second thought? In a farm setting, that baby cow would have been separated from the mother shortly after birth, so the farm could collect the mother’s milk for humans to drink. In Yulin they do not boil,skin or butcher animals alive that is just animal rights BS they drag the dogs out club them to death and skin some for soup and leave the skin on for some that they fry like fried chicken!! I previously held the same stance as the author – that meat is meat so what is the difference?
It’s not so much that they eat dogs and cats but the way the manner in which they are killed.
They string them up by all four legs and while they wiggle and howl and yell in pain the skin them slowly. The people who are in charge of the Yulin Festival should be told that all other countries and parts of China that don’t go along with the torture and killings of these dogs, will boycott Yulin! Voce pode ter ficado chateado, mas seu problema e menor perto de quem, mesmo sem saber o que queria, seguiu o impulso e mandou bala no primeiro desenho que teve em mente (ou que viu no estudio).
Lembra quando voce era crianca e seus pais te avisavam para nao descer aquela ladeira epica no rolima, skate ou bike e que, se voce "ou-sa-se" faze-lo, nao so ficaria de castigo como tambem iria se ralar inteiro? Se voce aguentava o tranco quando era crianca, por que acha que -- adulto -- nao fara o mesmo?
Minha segunda tatuagem foi no braco esquerdo, um barco dentro de um mar revolto, acompanhado de uma baleia, feita aqui em Sao Paulo.
Foram 2 horas e meia para finalizar o desenho e, ainda assim, bem mais agradavel do que passar 15 minutos no indicador.


E nao entenda errado: se voce tatuou uma carpa nas costas, um simbolo do infinito no pulso ou, pra ser mais atual, uma ancora no antebraco, nada disso e necessariamente ruim, contanto que para voce isso signifique alguma coisa. A tatuagem e uma forma de expressao, portanto, um desenho em sua pele estara sempre dialogando nao so com voce, mas com um ou mais observadores, assim sendo, quanto mais conhecido for o simbolo e o local escolhido para faze-lo, mais rapido e abreviado sera o julgamento que sera feito a seu respeito. Sim, e o mesmo pensamento que utilizamos com o preconceito: olhamos um individuo, reconhecemos os simbolos sociais genericos que ele expoe e fazemos um julgamento rapido.
Obs: “maconheiro” so foi usado uma vez no exemplo, mas caso a tatuagem em questao nao seja de Jesus Cristo, todos as demais podem ser considerados maconheiros.
Por mais que voce tenha achado idiota este teste de liga-pontos (e ele e), duvido muito que o seu resultado tenha sido diferente do meu. Para um tigre, bastam as listras para que reconheca um semelhante, porem, em uma estrutura social complexa como a nossa, reconhecermos que estamos diante de um ser humano parece nao bastar.
Eis ai um grande problema de nossa racionalidade: a necessidade de categorizacao que nos persegue.
Dito isso, saiba que voce pode, sim, optar por uma tatuagem apenas por fins esteticos ou mesmo utilizar o desenho da moda. Pense comigo: nem o mais feroz dos tubaroes passa a vida de boca aberta exibindo os dentes, certo?
Ao olhar um tubarao, nos ja entendemos o que ele representa, portanto, ao utilizar contrastes e sutilezas (a boca fechada), voce ganha mais significados que irao enriquecer sua composicao. Muitas pessoas se fixam tanto no que querem expressar que acabam esquecendo que, mais do que mostrar, e preciso dizer e, para que se consiga isso, clareza e fundamental. Utilizando um exemplo besta, o desenho de um simples coracao ferido sempre sera mais inteligivel do que o desenho do rosto da sua ex-namorada quando ela terminou com voce. Tatuagens mais estilizadas -- na grande maioria dos casos -- serao expressoes mais claras (e mais sutis) do que os desenhos fieis que visam reproduzir algo de maneira identica a realidade.
E claro que, se o seu desejo for ter na pele uma copia fiel de algo ou alguem -- e isso lhe trouxer conforto e felicidade--, nao ha nada de errado nisso. O virtuosismo na busca pela realidade muitas vezes pode nublar os reais sentimentos que queremos passar. Com a tatuagem e assim tambem, pois, mais do que ser uma mera reproducao imagetica da realidade, ela se trata de um grito, um murro, um sorriso, uma tristeza ou o que diabos mais quisermos colocar pra fora.
Ok, e falso, mas foi o unico meio de coloca-la nesta materia e, pensando bem, isso se adequa super bem aquela historia dos girassois e tal.
There are so many amazing vegan sites out there with recipes and vegan lifestyle tips, but what these sites have in common is personality. Veganism can come with a feeling of isolation, especially if you don’t have any vegan friends of family. Like any lifestyle change, it just takes time to adapt, and I think that these vegan writers do an amazing job of sharing not just their kitchens but a bit of themselves with everything that they write. There are recipes for vegan versions of common Jewish dishes and even an example of a grocery shopping list for new vegans.

Al the soy-based frozen desserts I’ve tried never fail to please, especially Soy Delicious and SoGood. It was a huge box full of 3 boxes each of their leafy kale chip varieties and 1 bag each of their gluten free raw chips. The red pepper was my favorite of the three, but even those I probably wouldn’t pick up at the store.
That sort of ruins the whole raw appeal of these chips, but they were pretty tasty when they were toasted. Replacing some of your water servings with drinks that have a little bit of carbonation or flavor can help make those eight glasses more attainable and fun! Do you have a favorite low-sugar (or no-sugar!) alternative to water that you like to drink? The Red Bull false advertising class action lawsuits pointed to Red Bull’s claims that “Red Bull Gives You Wings” and that it “vitalizes body and mind” due to its unique mixture of ingredients that could supposedly improve a consumer’s mental and physiological performance. However, to avoid the uncertainty and expense associated with a long litigation they have agreed to settle. The Red Bull settlement represents one of several class action lawsuits against food companies for false advertising. Herds of cattle have social structures and complex relationships, including deep friendships.
It is true that some butchers beat the dogs for several minutes before clubbing them because it raises the adrenaline levels in the dog and some Chinese think they taste better,it is no longer a common practice because of the outcry of the loons!?
They skin these animals alive and boil them while still breathing because they believe it makes the meat taste better.


How would you feel if your family pet was stolen and died a horrible death like the one described above.
It will not have any future dealings with others as long as they continue to do these killings!!
Rendia um belo castigo e um ralada ardida, mas, enquanto aquela cicatriz estivesse ali, voce iria se lembrar de como era ser livre e seguir seu proprio caminho, aquela sensacao unica da infancia, de desafiar o mundo se divertindo. Fiz um desenho feioso que um amigo tatuador, de Marilia, fez a preza de passar para minha pele e, rapaz, foram 15 minutos de uma dor dos infernos. O sombreado, ao contrario, comeca com voce dando risada, ainda mais por vir depois do contorno, mas com o tempo (se for um desenho grande) e ele o danado que realmente castiga. A unica diferenca e que, por incrivel que pareca, fazer tatuagem sua muito mais (voce vera). So e importante que saiba qual e a carga social que ele carrega, assim voce estara mais preparado para lidar com o nosso preconceito besta de cada dia. A sutileza neste momento criara multiplas camadas de significado e, quanto mais camadas a serem desvendadas, melhor. Mas se voce foi atras de um tatuador realista, achando que ele era melhor apenas por ser realista, e provavel que voce tenha cometido um engano. Composicao, estetica, tecnicas, mas antes e necessario descobrir se voces estao interessados no assunto.
I’m lucky to know lots of awesome vegan people here in Atlanta, but my close friends and my family are of the omnivore persuasion.
So, when the folks at Brad’s Raw Foods contacted me about sampling their raw kale chips, I jumped at the chance. Luckily, that crumbly, raw kale is great mixed into soups, sprinkled on salad, or mixed with pasta or potatoes. They were much better dipped in hummus or pesto, but on their own I found them a little bit flat. People need to go to the festival themselves instead of listening to activists that have an agenda,also I don’t think it is the right of westerners to try and demand the Chinese not eat this or that they need to mind their own business!! As criancas menores ja sabiam, todos te olhavam como se voce fosse o cara mais perigoso da rua. Desta maneira, as pessoas demorarao mais para categoriza-lo e de quebra voce ainda ganha um “q” de misterio. They used to make a Pistachio Almond flavor that was my absolute favorite, but the Green Tea and Almond Pecan flavors are pretty delicious, too.
Sometimes, just a little carbonation alone is enough to give your water some pizzazz without any sugar at all.
Check out these ideas for fruity fizz combinations to make your water-drinking extra special. Tea is a great alternative to water, and many teas even contain antioxidants to help protect you from disease.
Stories like these shed a light on the interesting lines we draw as a society about which animals we will eat and which we won’t.
But news like the outcry over the Yulin Dog Meat Festival really does call our seemingly arbitrary social constructs about animal foods into question. Does “bacon is delicious” really trump the rights of intelligent, social creatures?
I have been to China at the festival twice and although not pleasant it wasn’t different form many slaughter houses in the US or Mexico. Uma ultima analisada na estrategia e voce soltava um risinho nervoso e desafiador antes de acelerar como se nao houvesse amanha. There are just some things that we don’t get to commiserate about, like coming up with an awesome recipe for vegan queso or the quest for vegan boots. Some growers cut their stevia back multiple time, and others allow the plant to grow huge and harvest it right to the ground.
Americans kill 2 million dogs a year and throw them in a landfill does that make any sense dead is dead meat is meat??!
The leaves dry in my dehydrator within a day's time, and they soon pile up in my gallon jar on the pantry shelf.
