NY Vegetarian Food Festival Cruelty-free Helping Abused Animals

NY Vegetarian Food Festival Cruelty-free Helping Abused Animals

NY Vegetarian Food Festival

The NYC Vegetarian Food Festival was held on Saturday May 20 and Sunday May 21, 2017 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street, from 11AM to 6 PM.

All these companies are helping abused animals with their products and rescue support.

It is wonderful to see more vegan options in restaurants and supermarkets. Just 1 year ago, it was difficult to find vegan milk. Now, half the milk isles are with multiple options of vegan milk. Much more funding, with venture capital is flooding the research market. A great example is PlantBased Solutions. Their goal is to “support the world with innovative plant-based products. Their focus includes food, packaging, health, beauty and fashion”. Other companies such as Ripple Foods that just came out with pea-protein milk, offers a great protein-based milk product that is also low in sugar. Many clothing companies are focusing their attention to creating clothing that is cruelty-free. They use no animals, nor exploit any animals in their creation of warm clothing. Great examples are Wully Outerwear and Will’s Vegan Shoes & Accessories Co., two of the exhibitors at the NYC Vegetarian Festival. Be Brilliant Bags offers cruelty-free hand bags. Companies offering cruelty-free cosmetics such as Derma-E and cleaning products such as Better Life are growing too.

5 Things Helping People Become Vegan

5 Things Helping People Become Vegan

Vegan cooking

With a greater interest in caring for animals, there are many things that are helping people become vegan. This includes vegan foods, vegan cooking classes, vegan products, internet tips and recipes, vegan books and more. When people become vegan, they are helping abused animals and the environment.

Great Vegan Cooking Classes

I just attended a great vegan cooking class held at the Natural Gourmet Institute with instructor Sara Furcini, in New York City. I really enjoyed learning new recipes under proper instruction, with great tips. One of my favorite was learning about black salt that smells and tastes like eggs and other ingredients that I am now starting to use. The class enjoyed cooking and eating multiple, very tasty brunch dishes. Thank you to Sara!! Check out her other classes. Also, check out her website www.BlissNVinegar.com for great recipes and tips. The raspberry muffins were out of this world.

Great Vegan Foods

Not only are there great tasting vegan foods and dishes. Vegan foods are helping abused animals. And they are also healthy and support the environment. Research is currently being done to help male chicks from being ground to death, for example, by Compassion in World Farming. Companies such as Gardein offers many tasty dishes such as Mandarin Orange, found in the frozen section. Their website also offers great recipes. Miso soup, tempeh, olives and pickles, almond milk, hummus, all the vegetables and fruit, to enjoy and stay healthy … the list goes on.

Climate-Change? 65B Reasons to go Vegan.

Climate-Change? 65B Reasons to go Vegan.

Concerns about climate change are global. So why…

…why is there relatively such little concern about factory farming, which is affecting climate change? Why aren’t all those concerned with climate change also vegan, and thereby helping abused animals in addition to helping climate change?

The brutality and inhumanity against animals are reasons enough to go vegan. But, if one needs a climate-related reason, it is known that factory farming contributes greatly to global warming. The Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs ) is playing a key role.

Vegan food

65 Billion animals are crammed into CAFOs, imprisoned, tortured and killed in unhealthy, unsanitary CAFOs.

Sickness is the norm for animals who are confined rather than pastured, eating GMO corn and soybeans rather than grass. The antibiotics and growth hormones that they are fed are threatening the environment as they enter our drinking water. The food contains antibiotic-resistant pathogens and drug residues that affect our bodies.

CAFOs contribute to greenhouse gases more than the transportation industry. So when people assess their air quality, they should realize that it is their animal-food that is causing a large part of the problem.

Animals require a tremendous amount of water, affecting areas like California that have droughts. Factory farming requires more food (grains that could feed people), than it produces.

And what about the eco-system for animals outside the farms? We are causing the torture and extinction of many animals which causes an imbalance in the environment.

It’s long past due to take care of the animals rather than abusing and killing them.

  • When will people’s hearts be larger than their stomachs?
  • When will people decide that it is more important to save millions of animals from being tortured and killed than to get a fur coat, leather shoes and pocketbooks.
  • When will people realize that trophy-killing is not only brutally inhumane, but brings extinction that can never be reversed.
  • When will people realize that animals’ purpose in life is not for our entertainment, but rather, to live in the manner that is humane, and ecologically and environmentally safe.
  • When will stopping animal cruelty be more important than the makeup and household products that are purchased?

The list goes on and on, …. We need to be helping abused animals live in peace with their families in their environment. Animals feel pain and loneliness. That has been proven. Animal lovers weep at the brutality against animals. The sample stories and pictures depicting such abuse are beyond words.

There is so much humanity among animals in the animal kingdom. It’s horrific that such humanity is missing from so many people.

Go vegan to help the animals, ourselves, and the globe. If you care about the climate, you should care about the living beings too.

Mercy For Animals Shows How Vegan Diet Saves Animals and The Environment

Mercy For Animals Shows How Vegan Diet Saves Animals and The Environment

A vegan diet saves animals and the environment. Mercy for Animals is an awesome organization which is constantly helping abused animals. I just saw their latest statistics on the beneficial effects of eating a vegan diet. A great reminder to those who are not vegan.

To quote Mercy for Animals’ statistics, “Each day, a person who eats a vegan diet saves

  • 110 gallons of water
  • 45 lbs of grain
  • 30 sq ft of forests
  • 20 lbs of CO2
  • the life of one animal

Go vegan! There are great recipes and restaurants. Some are listed HERE under our Resources Section.
