Eating Less Meat Will Reduce Earth's Heat

Estimates of how much animal agriculture adds to greenhouse gases range widely, from about 14 to more than 50 per cent of total global emissions. Agriculture exacerbates climate change in a number of ways. Clearing carbon sinks such as forests to grow or raise food can result in net greenhouse gas increases. Farming, especially on an industrial scale, also requires fossil fuel-burning machinery, as does processing and transporting agricultural products.

The stereotype of vegans and vegetarians as self-righteous, hectoring, spoilsports pushing their puritan agenda was never fair. Now that negative perception is disappearing altogether. The promotion of plant-based pleasure has arrived.

A well-planned healthy vegetarian diet can lower the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and various types of cancer. Even making small dietary changes, such as participating in meatless Mondays, is a great first step towards a more environmentally sustainable lifestyle.

Every second of every day, over 2,400 land animals are killed for food. To add insult to injury, animal agriculture is one of the most significant contributors to climate change.

This Roasted Beet And Kale Salad Is Even Tastier The Next Day

One thing I love about kale salads is that you can make a big batch to have for leftovers, and even dress it and the leaves won't go soggy. The leaves are much tougher than other greens, so I actually often like kale salads even better in the following days once the dressing has really soaked in and marinated the leaves.

One of the great pleasures of travel is, of course, the different food options that are available at different destinations. But for those travelling with food restrictions -- allergies, gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan or religious boundaries -- it requires some definite pre-planning.

I know, nobody wants to feel like a pain or an inconvenience to a restaurant or our dining partner. But the reality is that every time we cede to the salad, we are allowing people continue to believe that vegan food is dull, boring, tasteless and unfulfilling.

Eggs: Get The Most From This Power Protein

In North America, the most commonly-produced eggs are from battery-caged hens. These pitiful creatures live their whole lives crammed as many as five or six at a time into tiny wire cages, where they can barely move. This way they can't get any health-promoting exercise.

The rewards of eating conscientiously, healthfully, and humanely aren't exclusive to the planet and animals; happily, for everyone joining the meat, egg, and dairy-free movement this year, plant-based eating has never been easier or more enjoyable -- especially if you keep a few important tips in mind.

As An Animal Lover, I Don't Accept The Vegan Argument Against Milk

Samita Sarkar | Posted 12.02.2015 | Canada Living
Samita Sarkar

Cows are loving, motherly animals and hold a special place in Indian culture. When loved and treated well, they will happily give their excess milk to humans after their calves have had their fill. Dairy products are commonly used in Hindu rituals. I just could not get behind the vegan argument that drinking milk was fundamentally wrong.

Don't feel badly. Especially if you're a new vegan, you may feel terrible for "imposing" on your host, or intimidated by the looks you're being given by others. Stay firm with your beliefs and don't let anyone make you question the legitimacy of your position.

You Don't Understand Vegetarianism

Here's a crash course: vegans do not consume any animal products. Vegetarians consume animal products that can be obtained without killing an animal (such as eggs and dairy), but do not eat any meat or fish. Pescetarians eat a diet almost identical to those of vegetarians, with the addition of seafood.

Being a vegetarian is actually pretty easy. The food is better, healthier and provides motivation to look closer at the impacts of diet and health. What isn't easy is being a vegetarian while also enjoying a lot of "dude stuff."

Cecil's death has caused an Internet uproar. It's almost all that I am seeing in my newsfeed. Most of it is unadulterated outrage directed at the perpetrator. The world (or North Americans, at least) are experiencing collective grief, horror, devastation and anger in a way that I haven't seen for some time.

A Vegetarian Feast to Remember
