Meet your Meat…

“If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian.”  – Paul McCartney

I must say: since I became a Vegan I can’t stop searching for informations about anything related to the matter. From tasty recipes to new shocking videos that will help me to understand a little bit more every day. I seek those facts in blogs, forums, related websites… Each small part is important, and every single day I more proud of myself for making this choice, and more disgusted with animals products. I feel so better inside of my mind and with my body that sometimes even sounds like a dream: Wow, I am free of meat! However (once again) is not about me! It’s about them…

Is your choice to watch this, but I can guarantee that you won’t feel sorry you did.

We need to help them! Animals are not our property and we must stop treading them as they were!

Let’s make a difference in the world. How about that? Once YOU choose to get control of YOUR life, and what YOU put inside of YOUR body, things will be better, for you and for them!

Best Wishes.

“Truely man is the king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds theirs.  We live by the death of others:  we are burial places!  I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look on the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men.”  – Leonardo da Vinci

First vegan grocery shop…

90% of my life’s choices are drastic and BIG! For example: if I want to be as actress, Hollywood has to be the only place; or if I want to get drunk (something that doesn’t happen very often), passing out is the only way I’ll leave the club… 😀 For me it always has been ALL or NOTHING. So being Vegan was obviously the right path for me. There’s just two options in my mind: you can choose to kill animals, or not. AT ALL!! (Because if you are vegetarian, there’re cows who are suffering so you can have your glass of milk in the morning.) So yes, for me I had to quit everything. Especially after watching “Earthlings”… I cried for 1:30min, non stopping!! If you wanna know how the animals are treated in shelters, slaughterhouses, zoos, circus, bullfighting, fur factories, medical laboratories and more, you should watch it! It will chance the way you see anything related to animals. However I have to let you know that it contains really violent scenes, so I wouldn’t show it to my children, or maybe you should prepare yourself also… For that matter, here is the trailer:

Don’t watch if you can’t handle, is YOUR choice.

So after spending the whole afternoon crying over that documentary and knowing with all of my heart that I will never eat animal related (or whatever is the right way to say this) food anymore, I went to my friend’s house so I could stop thinking about it. It was very fun, our nights are always the bests! But obviously the video and my new lifestyle didn’t left my mind and I knew that what I had to do: Grocery Shop 😀 And this is the best part. I LOVE grocery shopping. So I left my friends house in the morning, went to Blenders, order a Açaí juice with soy ice cream and soy milk (it was DELICIOUS), and got into Lazy Acres. I love that place! It’s cute, great service, very clean and completely ORGANIC! Here it is what I bought:

(veggie burger, veggie pizza, uncle eddie’s cookies & banana chips)  😀

It wasn’t a lot because here at home I already have yellow and red peppers, shitake mushrooms, normal mushrooms, wheat bread, tomatoes, cucumber, all-bran, blueberries, condiments. C’mon, it’s impossible to say that any of those things aren’t delicious! The Vegan cookies were the BESTS ones I’ve ever had, and the good thing is since doesn’t have sugar, dairy or eggs you feel so good after eating it. In addition forget about that feeling when you start eating a cookie and you can’t stop it. It’s the sugar and dairy making you feel you need them!

Although I didn’t do anything after that (just some homework), the day was great and until now I had no cravings! People make this bigger that what it is. Being Vegan is fun 😀 Oh, just one more thing: if you saw the video and wants to know what is the first step to be a vegan, go to the PETA website, it’s very helpful and makes you really want to help.

Best Wishes!

Vegan…

I always knew that this day would come! The day that I would embrace my passion for animals and finally give up of meat, chicken, pork and dairy. This day is today! This idea is not new, I’ve talked to my mom a lot of times about it, I always had enormous respect for vegans and now it’s my time. The turning point was a book (it’s always about a book) “Skinny Bitch”.

Never heard of it? So go to barnes&nobles.com and buy it, or just go into their website. Is good, and you will not feel the wish for eating anything that is not good for you. And meat is definitely NOT good for you. Although it’s not only just about me: have you ever read about the kind of things that those poor animals have to go through? Well, I try to keep my mind of it, but I can’t close my eyes… not anymore!

So today I’m here to let everyone know that I’M A VEGAN! It would be hard to change my love for sushi, however I can deal with it. NO MORE!!!

I already feel better, BUT what do I do with all the canned tune, frozen chicken and meat inside of my fridge? Shit. Help please?

What really matters…

Saturday night (7pm) and thinking about what I was doing exactly 24 hours ago, it’s an amazing joy. Yesterday’s night was so much fun that (again) I can’t understand how everything could always get better. I love my life! And it remind me that things will happen, I just have to be in the right track.

But that is not the reason I decided to post. This topic is bigger than me, and I can’t understand how some people don’t care about it. It’s not human to disregard and forget about what’s going on. We have to stick together and to fight this horrible threat. And I’m talking about the only thing that really matters: The cruelty agains our animals.

I have a puppy back in Brazil, he’s my ultimate joy and I can’t even imagine how angry I would be if someone decided to hurt him. But what about the other animals? Those ones that doesn’t have anyone to speak in behalf of them? Or to make them warm and give anything to eat. Or even worst, what about those animals that are born doomed to became food, OUR food. Should I close my eyes and pretend that nothing is happening? No! I refuse to live life so poorly. And thinking about that I added a new widget here: SocialVibe for Action for Animals. They do exactly what I was talking about. And if you agree with their project, want to help but don’t know how, this is a great way to contribute with animals, and help other people doing things that we can’t, since sometimes we are just too far away. They also are pro-vegan and if you ever thought about becoming one, in their website there’s cool link list and informations about how to join this lifestyle. I already reduced carbs from my diet, now I’m thinking seriously about cutting meat too (I already don’t eat dairies and eggs), it’s the best way to help our planet and also stay healthy.
