Tofu and eat it!

The benefits of tofu Studies have shown that if you eat enough tofu, you can get the appropriate amount of protein, total fat, carbohydrates, and fiber. To get the same amount you must eat about twice as much tofu as you would meat, but tofu is lower in calories so it balances out. Tofu has less cholesterol, fewer triglycerides, and less low-density lipoprotein than meat. That means if you switch out meat for tofu on a regular basis, it can actually help you lower these numbers! This is great news for people who want to lower their risk of cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure (hypertension), as well as help those who already suffer from those conditions. Studies conducted by...

Reasons Canine Teeth don't make you a meat eater

Humans, as we were evolving, ate primarily foraged fruits and vegetables with meat thrown in when available. This is why most of our teeth are flat. We have canines, true, but humans in prehistory weren't eating meat 3x a day every day. Our digestive system isn't able to handle as much meat. We can't even eat raw meat, unlike all natural carnivores. To think that our teeth are able to "efficiently and quickly tear apart meat" is ridiculous. Have you tried eating a raw steak recently? One of the most common justifications for eating animals that vegans encounter is, “If I wasn’t meant to eat meat, then I wouldn’t have these canine teeth!” It’s a knee-jerk defense that’s often made after a meat-eater has been...

Meat but not as you've ever known it...

If you had to list each chemical/ingredient, as we do for other foods, meat is made up of muscle, tendons, blood, hormones, fertilizers/pesticides the animal ingested, etc. And if every molecular/chemical "ingredient" had to be listed for meat, it would look something like this: Water, actin, myosin, sarcoplasmic proteins, collagen, elastin, monounsaturated fatty acids, saturated fatty acids, conjugated linoleic acids, iron, copper, ash (inorganic residue, makes up to 12% of the meat).. and so on. And, well, fecal bacteria . Yep. Weird, right?! But no worries... right?..... most bacteria are harmless to people. Just depends if you're ok with this.. if you are.. carry on... if you want to know more....    Read this article for more info: https://www.businessinsider.com/poop-bacteria-in-all-ground-beef-us-consumer-reports-2015-8

What's wrong with Shrimp? 🦐

What’s Wrong With Shrimp? When it comes to shrimp, there are several important ethical and environmental factors to consider. Organic waste Chemicals Pollution Loss of biodiversity Overfishing Bycatch Organic waste, chemicals, and antibodies from shrimp farms can quickly pollute groundwater or coastal estuaries. The pollution from these farms can result in loss of coastal biodiversity, which is essential for a healthy ecosystem. Wild caught shrimp often involves bycatch—the incidental capture of non-target species such as dolphins, marine sea turtles and seabirds. Raw shrimp also often contains a bacterium called Vibrio, which attaches itself to the shells of shrimp and other shellfish—gross! Why support this harmful industry when you can enjoy delicious and cruelty-free shrimp instead? What Is Vegan Shrimp Made Out Of? But...
