What’s the difference between eating a veg burger fried on the same flat top that an animal burger was fried on and eating seaweed that is harvested from an ocean in which humans slaughter fish? Should we not eat the veg burger fried in a place where animals were fried? … Continue Reading WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
If the only reason you eat animals is to get protein in your diet, there are lots of other ways to achieve that end without enslaving, torturing and murdering a living, breathing animal. Are you thirsting for blood? The blood of the plant satisfies your thirst. ~ The Animal-Free Chef
Scientists without taste buds shouldn’t be designing foods for the planet. They could end up poisoning us.
Oh my goodness. The seed. The most nutrient dense part of the plant. Reserved for the smaller animals of the planet, but we humans just have to have it. The purpose of the seed is to grow a plant. Then you eat the fruit of that plant – that which … Continue Reading THE SEED
Nature’s way of protecting wild and domesticated life from poisons – that which would harm the organism – is to make those foods containing said poisons taste badly, turn up your nose to them, by-pass them, don’t want to eat this because it chews badly, smells badly, tastes badly, spit … Continue Reading KALE
