I Don't Eat Meat

    Not Really.

    That was a bit misleading. I actually do eat meat, but not very often. But when I do, I like it :) I can't eat it all the time. I don't know, I  feel gross. Maybe I just hate chewing forty times on a chunk of meat before I can swallow it. So I stick to...

    I only recently stop eating meat

    because I had developed gout in both my big toes. Gout is a form of arthritis that is caused by uric acid that crystallizes around certain joints and uric acid comes from purine which is found in mostly in meat and other types of food and beverages. It's been an adjustment...

    Wise Words

    I sadly will never see this day come , will it ever come . There needs to be such a massive shift of human thinking and awakening , I fear people are too selfish and ignorant to let this happen . Most humans don't care enough to see the truth and even those that do are too lazy...

    Last winter my boyfriend

    and I decided to stop eating meat. We both are passionate about animal rights and the way people raise them and produce them to be slaughtered is disgusting. My body has gone through a transformation since I've stopped. I feel lighter and healthier. I am never going back.

    Texture Issue

    I don't eat meat.  It has nothing to do with animals.  I cook meat for my husband and friends when they come over.  I just don't care for the texture or taste of meat.  I like the texture of vegetables.  Simple.

    I changed my diet a few weeks ago

    and it was for the best. I've always wanted to live more of a raw vegan lifestyle and I'm just glad it's being achieved. Honestly, we as humans are not even designed to eat meat but we are accustomed to it because that's the type of societies we live in. Did you also know we are...

    I'm a pollo-pescetarian.

    In other words, I don't eat mammals. I still eat chicken and fish though. I stopped eating mammal meat about 2 years ago after reading a book on the Neuroscience of animal consciousness and awareness. I think mammals hold an advanced level of self-awareness and the value of...

    I get it. They hate me. So why don't they just leave me alone? Why all this hiding behind masks on various platforms? Hurling projections at me that I can see right through.
