Hooked on making green juices and FILLING them with an excessive amount of greens! Now to the beach!

Pretty lady! Also: green juices are the best- I just never have the patience to clean my juicer so I make smoothies instead :3

    The Perfect Care Package for the Cheap Vegan in Your World

    As a vegan on a budget, I know there is nothing better than getting a care package full of things that I really want but are just out of my price range. Here is a guide to making a healthy Cheap Vegan care package that’s sure to satisfy your favorite vegan. 

    Granola Bars
    A convenient breakfast or in between meal snack that we just hate spending with our own dime. Luna and Clif bars are great because they’re all vegan and the flavors are amazing. Key Lime Pie, Carmel Nut, or White Chocolate Macadamia nut are just a few of the interesting flavors Clif offers that vegans usually can’t try. 

    Kale Chips
    How did something made entirely of a garnish vegetable get so expensive? A gift of kale to the cheap vegan is a break from slow baking it ourselves.

    Heat and Go Dinner
    These Indian Dinners from Trader Joe’s are so good and so easy to make. Perfect for the vegan working doubles. Be sure to read the ingredients though, only the Punjab Choley is vegan.

    Fancy Nut Butter
    Specifically Justin's nut butters. These little single-serving packets are oh-so tempting every time you pass them at whole foods. The variety of flavors (all vegan) can't be beat making them the perfect treat!

    That rhyme was totally unintentional…

    High Quality Dark Chocolate
    Fair trade, organic, dark chocolate can be a little pricier than an average Hershey bar. Nothing says “I love you”, like chocolate.

    Granola
    Next to tofu, granola is probably the most famous of vegan staples, but it can get pricey compared to regular cereals. It’s light-weight and can actually hold your friend over for a week of breakfast, making it a thoughtful and practical care package accessory.

    Dried Soup Mix
    Another light weight complete meal that you can send in the mail. Soup is the perfect comfort food sure to warm their tummy and their heart.

    A Homemade Pastry
    No care package would be complete without something homemade. Use www.vegweb.com to find vegan recipes for any treat! 

    A Lil Somthing Extra
    At the end of the day, a care package is just another way to show your love. Adding a personal touch like a hand written note, an old picture, or an inside joke will mean more than all the granola and chocolate money can buy.

    This is a great question. As cool as it would be if everyone decided to go vegan, it wouldn’t happen overnight. As more people decide to switch to a humane and compassionate lifestyle, the demand for animal products starts to decline. When this happens, farmers start breeding less animals for consumption.

    What effect does this have on the environment?

    • Less carbon dioxide emission (if one person exchanges eating meat for a vegan diet, they’ll reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1.5 tons per year)
    • less methane production (chickens, turkeys, pigs, and cows are collectively the largest producer of methane in the U.S.)
    • less nitrus oxide (the meat, egg, and dairy industries produce 65% of worldwide nitrous oxide emissions)
    • not to mention that 1 calorie from animal protein requires 11 times as much fossil fuel as one calorie of plant protein
    • and the diets of meat eaters create 7x the greenhouse emissions as the diets of vegans
    • nearly half of all water used in the United States goes to raising animals for food. it takes more than 2,400 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of meat (1 pound of wheat requires 25 gallons)
    • you’d save more water by not eating one pound of meat than you would by not taking a shower for 6 months
    • raising animals for food uses 30% of the earth’s land mass (that’s about the same size as Asia! approx. 17 Million sq. miles. to give you another point of reference, the moon has less area than that, at 14.6 million square miles)
    • more than 260 million acres of U.S. forest have been cleared to create cropland to grow grain to feed farmed animals

    Why is raising animals for food so inefficient?

    • 70% of grain and cereals grown in U.S. are fed to farmed animals
    • it requires 16 pounds of grain to produce 1 pound of meat

    What does eating meat have to do with people starving in other countries?

    • every ounce of water, grain and resources that goes towards an animal who will ultimately be slaughtered is an ounce of water or grain that could have gone to those who so desperately need it. a study published earlier this year in the journal Environmental Research Letters analyzed the world’s agriculture resource data and found that humans cutting meat from their diets could play a significant role in combating world hunger. According to the researchers, 36 percent of the total calories that come from crops are allocated to farm animal feed, but only 12 percent of those calories actually make it to people’s dinner plates. The researchers concluded that if all of the world’s crops were directly consumed by humans, there would be approximately 70 percent more food available, providing sustenance for an additional 4 billion additional people.

    Check out this article, in which the UN is urging a global shift towards a vegan diet -

    "A global shift towards a vegan diet is vital to save the world from hunger, fuel poverty and the worst impacts of climate change, a UN report said today.

    As the global population surges towards a predicted 9.1 billion people by 2050, western tastes for diets rich in meat and dairy products are unsustainable, says the report from United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP) international panel of sustainable resource management.”

    So, in short, if the planet begins to move towards a vegan diet, our planet would last much longer, there would be better food opportunities for people who don’t get enough, there would be less damage done to the environment, there would be less disease, and maybe the other sentient beings on this planet will finally be treated with the respect they deserve.

    Perfect response.
