Why The World Needs Plant Meats and Plant Dairy

WHY THE WORLD NEEDS PLANT MEATS AND PLANT DAIRY Some vegans, especially minimalists, concerned about the carbon footprint believe that the carbon footprint that most researchers agree needs to be reduced may not be accomplished by replacing all animal products with plant alternatives. That may be so, however in order to convince the largest numbers […]

What Does Animal-Free Mean?

ANIMAL-FREE VEGAN COMPANIES ARE STILL IN THEIR BIRTHING STAGE What this means is that for many companies to get up and running they need to use the factories that other companies use to manufacture their goods that do contain animal products. They basically rent out the facilities, thus the common labeling of possible and/or traces of allergens […]

The Contradiction Issue

Upon choosing a healthier more compassionate diet, you will be challenged by those who have not yet taken that step, to defend your decision to not eat animals. They will argue that your animal-free diet contradicts your other animal using behaviors, thus making the issue of killing animals not worthy of consideration. They will point […]

I Want An Animal-Free Mall

I WANT AN ANIMAL-FREE MALL That’s right. A mall. Animal-free. A big one. With lots of glitter and big lights. With every kind of shop. Grocery, bakery, deli, shoe store, pet supply shop, clothes, hair salon using only cruelty-free products, and on and on, restaurants too. Good ones. I have a vision. And it’s a […]

Cut Out The Processing Animal – go straight to the top

We grow more plants to feed animals whom we kill to eat, than we grow to feed humans. But when we eat the animals we’re not getting the benefit of all those veggies eaten by all those animals, because the veggies are no longer veggies. The veggies eaten by the animal builds muscle, fat and […]

Take A Step Out Of The Ugly Past

TAKE A STEP OUT OF THE UGLY PAST I’m going to keep using the words meat, meaty, to describe the main part and/or texture of the plant until such time that meat = plant. In other words, animals will not be considered meat nor food in the future. I will not, however, refer to a […]

LOOKIN’ 4 UMAMI

A LESSON IN CREAMY CREAMY ASIAN APRICOT SAUCE Hey, I find it strange that so-called food scientists have isolated a taste sensation in soy sauce or shoyu called umami. I have yet to experience it. Maybe my buds are lacking those needed for that discernment. If not lacking, I can’t find anything, in my global-sensitive […]

I’ll Take Half & Half…

The USA needs a leader that’s half Republican and half Democrat dusted with liberty for all. I think Donald Trump can be that leader. Unlike Hillary Clinton he doesn’t expect the populace to do his job. Although I voted for Hillary Clinton and have been a lifelong Democrat, now that I see the true character […]

Not all animal-free dairy and animal-free meat foods are alike

Flavor, texture, color, aroma play a huge role in the products engineered to taste, look, feel and smell like something they’re not. For me it’s all about the essence. I don’t want a food that tastes so much like a real cow, pig or chicken that I can’t tell the difference. Nobody likes to be […]
