Practical Tips For Lessening The Anxiety

Posted in Animal Welfare on June 22, 2018

This one I am writing for me at the moment:) Normally I am pretty centred and present but I have been experiencing moments of anxiety this year due to circumstance, perhaps yes… but I know all-to-well that no matter what the outer circumstance, it is our inner environment that matters. And we can help this inner environment. I also know very well though growing up with loved ones who suffer severe mental struggles that to dismiss something with a  “you have the power to control your inner-environment” is not acknowledging […]

Eating Less Meat To Feed The World

Posted in Animal Welfare on June 06, 2018

Our food on our plate. How easy is it to look at it and forget how it got to us, right? We are spoilt in that way I guess, because everything is a little “easier”  but it also does us a disservice because we don’t see or REALLY grasp the impact of the production of our products or food. How did that cow get fed? How much did she or he need to eat? How did that food get to them? What land was used to grow the food? How […]

Ondine Sherman, Co-Founder of Voiceless & Author, Educating Our Youth on the Truth

Posted in Animal Welfare / People on May 29, 2018

Ondine Sherman is a woman I love. Her gentle and kind demeanour in no way takes away from her strength, commitment and ability to be vulnerable in her work she shares with the world. Alongside of  steering the ship of the animal rights group Voiceless, she has also wrote three books, one, The Miracle of Love is about her journey mothering her twin boys who have genetic disabilities and is a real eye and heart opener, a must-read for everyone. The other two books are from her young adult fiction […]

Why NOW Is The Time We Must Speak Out To Ban the Live Sheep Trade

Posted in Animal Welfare on May 10, 2018

I have been wanting to write a post on the live sheep trade for a long time… literally years. But each time I go to, I have a major block around it because, as you will know if you watched any of the footage recently that Animals Australia bravely got, it is heart-wrenching disturbing. It is the sort of footage that makes you lose your breath, that springs tears to your eyes within minutes and personally, deep in my chest hurts with a sense of shame to be part of […]

Food Products You Wouldn’t Realise Have Dead Animals in Them

Posted in Animal Welfare on May 03, 2018

I have been living as a vegan for almost 16 years now. (And I am still alive and kicking despite what so many friends, family and even, can I say ignorant, health professionals told me – touch wood!) What continues to surprise me is how there are animals products hidden in so many food products that are not obvious unless you are aware of it. Even if you check labels it isn’t always clear – which I personally think isn’t right for the consumer. This is by no means a final […]

Men CAN Be Strong Eating Only Plants

Posted in Animal Welfare on January 23, 2018

Shock. Strong men that only eat plants? No? The idea that you have to consume whole chickens, piles of steaks and wash it down with a smoothie containing a dozen raw eggs to be a strong man is still the general concept that is floating around, which may date back to cave-men days. Yet, thank goodness we no longer live in caves and now more and more prominent males in the spotlight are demonstrating that this is not the case. You can live a cruelty-free life and be healthy.  You […]

Veal; What You Need To Know To Make Your Choice.

Posted in Animal Welfare on December 05, 2017

Veal crates are just about the most barbaric contraption still used by a human on another living being. Just the picture of them reminds me of something from a horror sci-fi film. Like an experiment gone terribly wrong. Which it is. And it has. These crates are designed to prohibit exercise – really stop any movement by the calf – and normal muscle growth in order to produce tender “gourmet” veal. The calves are fed a milk substitute that is purposely low in iron so that they will become anemic […]

Why I Say No To Horse Races

Posted in Animal Welfare on October 27, 2017

When I was a teenager I went to the ‘Running of the Bulls’ in Pamplona. It was such a wild, fun weekend. I didn’t think about the bulls. I didn’t want to. I was having too much fun. In the oh-so-many years since then I have learnt a few things. And one of those important pieces of wisdom is – Don’t have fun at the cost of pain to another. And I would take it as far as saying, there is something inherently wrong with doing so. If you believe […]

My favourite Bags and Jackets That Don’t Cost a Life.

Posted in Animal Welfare / Products on October 12, 2017

I may not be the most fashionable person but I still like myself a beautiful handbag, a great fitting jacket and shoes that help add some sass to my step. For over 15 years now I have not worn leather and in no way have I felt that it has let me down on the fashion front… rather I still get comments about my shoes or bags from people when I am out and they are not aware they aren’t leather, confirming to me that you can avoid leather and […]

Did Your Seafood Get To Your Plate From A Bottom Trawler?

Posted in Animal Welfare / Food on September 18, 2017

Bottom trawling is a widespread industrial fishing practice that involves dragging heavy nets, large metal doors and chains over the seafloor to catch fish. Globally, some reports show that still around one-quarter of wild-caught seafood comes from bottom trawling. The major issue is that these heavy nets consume everything in their path, resulting in a high yield of by-catch and they cause permanent damage to the fragile structures on the ocean’s floor, destroying the future of entire ecosystems. They strip the seabed of life, destroy large areas of corals – off […]
