Plus there are a ton of other options, just try em all and see which ones you like. The health benefits are great, but lets not forget the number one reason to go vegan:

Being a man is okay.
Being a chauvinist is not.
Being straight is okay.
Being homophobic is not.
Being white is okay.
Being racist is not.
Being a vegan is okay.
Being oppressive of carnivores is not.

I love carnivores! Lions, tigers, sharks,…

Happy Friday!  This morning’s breakfast shake is an Oatmeal Cookie Smoothie.  SO tasty and chock full of goodness!  I added a tbsp. of Maca for good measure.  :)  The nutty taste of Maca goes perfectly with the flavors in this shake!

This morning’s breakfast smoothie - 1 cup almond milk, 2/3 cup mixed berries, 1 banana, 1/2 cup rolled oats, handful of spinach, and 1 tsp agave nectar. Yummm!

The last thing other animals need is another reason not to care about them. How we act towards other people can provide just such a reason. Being rude or judgmental doesn’t help any nonhuman. A coping technique I use (to quell my impatience, when I feel it bubbling-up in my throat) is to think of the people who ask questions I’ve been asked hundreds of times as mirrors. Yes, I think of them as mirrors. When I look at them, in other words, what I see is a reflection of who I used to be.
Like them, there was a time when I didn’t know how other animals were being treated.
Like them, there was a time when I knew but didn’t care.
Like them, there was a time when I knew and cared but not enough to change how I was living.
Like them, there was a time when I was … them!
That’s what I try to remind myself. I don’t want to come across as self-righteous or arrogant. That would give the questioner another reason not to care about other animals, and I don’t want to do that—I don’t want to be that reason.

Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.
