HippieDippyVegan- Veganism Quote

Most vegans say that going vegan was the best decision of their lives, and their only regret is they did not do it sooner. My husband, and I are a couple of these people. This probably comes from understanding that we are now living in a way that causes the least possible harm to animals, the environment, and to our health.  There seems to be a freeing of our minds, and an awakening of our spirits. We cleansed our bodies of toxins to restore harmony and balance. Vegan is not defined merely as a diet, it is defined as a way of living.

Sattvic Diet - Interesting Read 

A very wise man, and my friend from India, said that Veganism is like a Sattvic diet.  With no knowledge about the diet, I did some research, and here is just a little information that I found. Very interesting, and I wanted to share it with you. 

Sattvic Diet- HippieDippyVegan

**Taken From Wikipedia

This is a diet based on foods in Ayurveda and Yoga literature that contain sattva quality (guna).[1][2] In this system of dietary classification, foods that harm the mind or body are considered Tamasic, while those that are neither positive or negative are considered Rajasic.

Sattvic diet is meant to include food and eating habit that is "pure, essential, natural, vital, energy-containing, clean, conscious, true, honest, wise"

 There is a HUGE difference when they consume dairy compared to what farm factories do to our cows. 

Wikipedia

The milk must be obtained from an animal that has a spacious outdoor environment, an abundance of pasture to feed on, water to drink, is treated with love and care, and is not pregnant. It may only be collected once the mother's calf has its share.

Look at this adorable pig. Pigs enjoy belly rubs, ear rubs, and cherish being loved, and they are extremely intelligent. One item on my bucket list is owning a pig one day! In the meantime, I sponsor a pig from The Gentle Barn, his name is Truffles, and a chicken, sheep and turkey. Yes, I have my own little farm sanctuary. LOL 🙂 There are so many animals in need, and  you too can sponsor your very own animal(s). With so many sanctuaries , they are always looking for donations, and for volunteers.

As written before, pigs are highly intelligent.  They like to play and learn new tricks. Pigs have great long-term memories, and can be socially manipulative with other pigs. They are also able to tell which people are nice to them, and who isn't.  Naturally, pigs are able to distinguish between other pigs.

Scientists found that pigs are smarter than dogs, and can solve problems just as well as chimpanzees. The study's authors are hoping the results will make people think differently about animals that are traditionally seen as meat.

Take The Vegucated Challenge

 

I did this and there was no turning back for me!  

Everyday more and more people are choosing to live a plant based whole foods vegan diet for many reasons.

  • Not wanting to participate in the exploitation of animals. Did you know that more than 56 billion animals are killed every year for flesh, diary, and eggs? That is outrageous.
  • For the environment, that includes global warming, human rights, and world hunger.
  • For personal health.

I believe that education is where people will begin to make the connection, and make the change. I hear people say to me, "That they aren't directly involved with the how the meat arrived on their plate," but we are all involved with the choices we make. Your choice is involvement.
