Boost your brain with vegan food We’ve all had days when we didn’t feel like we were ‘on our game.’ And as we age, both our bodies and our brains grow old as well. By making smart vegan food choices though, we can preserve our […]
When you are vegan than buying vegans products is the big deal! Buying food items in cans lack in nutrition and are usually loaded with salt and preservatives in today’s food markets. The process of freshness goes from fresh fruits and vegetables to frozen foods, […]
Livekindly reveled that Vegan musician Travis Barker, drummer for American rock band Blink-182, his daughter, pop artist Alabama Luella Barker, musician Moby, and scores of other celebrities have given their support to the upcoming March of Silence. The activist-driven event was created in order to show solidarity to the millions of animals who are used as commodities each year.
“Our Mission is to bring awareness to the exploitation and abuse of ALL ANIMALS,” states the official website. “From the neglected house pets to exploited animals of entertainment (kept in zoos, aquariums, theme parks), from beauty test subjects and grotesque fashion statements to beloved farmyard animals used and abused in the born-to-die animal agriculture industry.”
Surge is The Official Animal Rights March is an annual march founded by UK animal rights organisation Surge. The march began in London in 2016 with 2,500 vegans and in 2017 the march doubled to 5,000 vegans marching in London for animal liberation. In 2018 we want to see THOUSANDS MORE vegans taking over the streets of London, demanding an end to all animal oppression.
In order to make this march bigger than ever before, we need your help. Invite your friends, tell every vegan you meet, this is the day that we unite, where we stand up, rise up and say no more, not in our name.
Mens Journal noted that Though Barker had been vegetarian since the age of 15, he made the switch to vegan nearly a decade ago as part of a promise he made to himself after surviving the plane crash with his friend DJ AM.* So far, so good.
“Honestly, ever since I found this way of eating I have endless amounts of energy,” says Barker. “I can go all day, and after it all I never find myself getting tired. No matter what kind of shows I have done, or workouts I do on top of it, I still have to force myself to sleep at night.”
The drummer managed to put his relentless day on pause to discuss creating his own training method, shake recipes, and how he stays fit on tour.
According to Life kindly Vegan actor and animal rights activist Alicia Silverstone visited California lawmakers in order to urge them to ban the sale of animal-tested cosmetics. Vegan doctors from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) joined Silverstone in talking to legislators about the importance of passing the California Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Act […]
A vegan diet is considered a raw vegan food diet if it consists of at least 75% raw, uncooked fruits, vegetables, sprouts, etc. Raw and living foods are believed to contain essential food enzymes (living foods contain a higher enzyme content than cooked foods). The cooking process (i.e., heating foods above 116°F) is thought to destroy food enzymes. People who follow the raw vegan diet use particular techniques to prepare foods. These include sprouting seeds, grains and beans; soaking nuts and dried fruits; and juicing fruits and vegetables. The only cooking that is allowed is via a dehydrator.
Do you have to follow the regimen that strictly? Of course not. But it’s certainly worth it to incorporate some of these techniques and ideas into your raw vegan diet. If you tend to snack at work, try taking in carrots or apple slices. Many of the bigger grocery stores now offer packaged vegetables or fruits that make it easier to pack them and take them to work. Food retailers have been catching on, slowly, and it’s much easier now to get bags of sliced carrots, celery, apples, nuts, and raisins.
Organic and RAW
Of course, these aren’t necessarily organic foods, and organic is the better way to go, but we think anything raw is infinitely better than cooked, processed food. If you have the time, do buy organic and slice them yourself. But if you’re in a hurry, and nowhere near a natural food store, then don’t beat yourself up or sabotage your efforts because you can’t do this 100% all the time. That’s not realistic. Anything from the fruit and vegetable aisle is going to be better for you than a potato chip, or worse yet, a french fry!
