Sometimes on transport, we have rescue pups that are so scared they run to the back of their crate in an attempt to hide. They whine, shake, and even pee themselves in fear because they have no idea what's going on. The good news is that we mean them no harm, we are here to protect them, and when they finally get out, they are welcomed with open arms. They will be bathed, fed, and loved for many years, and they will know soon enough that there is nothing to fear.
Unfortunately, there's an imaginary line we've drawn and pigs, cows, chickens, and other animals who also fear harm are only loved for their flesh. Factory farms are more inhumane than most people could imagine. Pigs are boiled alive after their throats have been slit open. Chickens have their beaks cut off. Cows are forced into pregnancy repeatedly, only to have their babies stolen so humans can have their milk. They are used until their bodies are exhausted and can no longer produce, usually 4-6 years, and then slaughtered. Their natural lifespan is up to 25 years.
Males are considered "waste" since they don't produce eggs or milk. Male chicks are ground alive or drowned when they are only a day or so old. They are brought into the world for one reason: to die for a meal you won't remember tomorrow morning. Maybe you won't finish it, and it will be thrown into the trash. The one and only life they are given is taken away for 10 minutes of sensory pleasure.
When you say that eating meat is a personal choice, you're forgetting someone.
Going vegan is not about thinking you're better than others, it's about realizing that we do not have to do this to animals. No one is perfect, but we can all make better choices.
Great idea then fade to a fail. Paying extra for peppered 🥓 is a hustle, I now understand that and 🙏🏻 . But never, even in the worst of hangovers and in the depths of a flu, have I ever smelled bacon and been like, “Can someone turn on a candle before I 🤮“. #realtalk#bacon
Today was absolutely awesome! Great bunch of daycare kiddos, knocking the shed projects off the list and a quick meal prep sesh.
These shed projects consist mostly of adding windows, adding a partition wall to define the chickens' space, installing a couple shelves and BUILDING A CHICKEN TUNNEL. The chicken tunnel allows everyone to be put up at night (protection from the elements and sound dampening for occasional late night crowing) and then released to their run in the morning. We may eventually get an automatic chicken door (yes, they make those) but for now this is the solution for our girls.
Oh and the meal prep! Well, in an attempt to work through our frozen goods I thawed bacon, chicken and this new coconut curry sauce I found at Costco. I'll be harvesting the remainder of my lettuce so I planned on cooking the bacon to pair with leafy meals. Once the bacon was done, I discarded some of the fat and used the rest to saute the chicken. Chicken sauteed--> add sauce and cook on high pressure for 6-7 minutes. Remove chicken, add a little flour and some coconut milk then simmer until thick. Add chicken back in, stir and serve with rice. Easy, tasty and mostly healthy.
As Ron Swanson would say "why does anybody in the world ever eat anything but breakfast food?"

I'm not interested in arguing that we have always eaten meat, or that protein deficiencies exist enough for us to be fearful of, or that plants have feelings, or that it's your right to take their life.
I'm interested in us growing as a species, because what does not bend will break. I am interested in promoting more compassion in this truly disconnected world.
It starts with you.
Go vegan. Don't wait. History is changing. Be on the side of kindness, not hatred.
Look as these tools used in slaughterhouses, aka, torture rooms.
They also have gas chambers which burn their lungs from the inside out and scolding tanks which boil animals, often whilst still conscious.
They hold on to live, just as we would, for as long as possible.
