Gloria Steinem summed up one of the challenges of life very well when she said, “The first problem for all of us, men and women, is not to learn, but to unlearn.” This quote rings especially true when it comes to what we choose to eat. Our food choices are influenced by a range of factors that make it almost impossible to entertain change. Growing up, I was told that I needed to consume dairy for calcium, eat meat to get strong and fish to get smart. Imagining food without animal products on my plate seemed almost unimaginable.
Among the oldest Christian communities , the lamb was on the pastor’s shoulders (no plate )symbolized the soul saved by Christ .
Lamb on the shoulders of the shepherd is a sign of compassion and caring for the new life that Christ has provided.
When Jesus came , he tried to inspire people to a higher notion of sacrifice. Instead of sacrificing some poor animals who did no harm to anyone , he taught people to sacrifice their own inner animal and desires as inner animal slaughter such release energies that are more valuable and can be used in spiritual work . Those who understand this are on the way to climb; those who do not understand him are still stuck in the stalls or cages – symbolically speaking – along with their animals they sacrifice and do nothing to contribute to a greater deepening of their soul in the dark.
I propose this year to accept the sacrifice interior new life based on compassion and responsibility for the lives of animals and the others and become the best! How we want to have peace in the world and in our hearts if we have the plate “war”.
Killing Easter lamb has no basis in the Christian tradition, but rather has its roots in the Old Testament.
“It’s a bloody ritual in strong contradiction with the concept of the Resurrection, which brings renewal of faith and hope.
It is a ritual that is not necessary in a society like ours, already steeped in violence and death that serves only to satisfy the interests of the food industry. ”

The number of vegans in Britain has risen by more than 360 per cent over the past decade according to research by the Vegan Society. If you’re a vegan or thinking about making the switch, it’s important to note that following a plant-only diet can present a number of nutritional challenges. A vegan diet can make it more difficult to supply your body with the right amount of nutrients each day, for example. So it’s important to carefully plan your meals to ensure you consume a wide variety of highly nourishing foods. There are three crucial areas to be aware of on a day-to-day basis:
We get it. Tell someone to stop drinking milk and they’ll think you’re crazy, but there are good reasons to do so. For years, the dairy industry has done a great job of promoting its product. Campaigns such as Got Milk? have been pushed into homes globally, and their effect has been dramatic. Milk being good for you is almost as guaranteed as death and taxes in most people’s eyes. Unfortunately, the truth is a little different. Here we take a look at 8 reasons why you really should stop drinking milk if you haven’t already.
10 years ago, vegans were a marginalised community of people reduced to eating brown rice and boiled vegetables. You couldn’t really go out to eat and no one really respected your environmentally friendly life choices. These days, however, everyone seems to be dabbling in plant life. And nowhere is that more obvious than in Melbourne. The Australian city is being touted as the vegan capital of the world, with vegan dessert bars apparently becoming more popular than McDonald’s sundaes.
Easter is all about chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, right? With the odd hot cross bun and slice of simnel cake thrown in for good measure. But none of these Easter goodies are suitable for vegans surely? Well, think again. It’s really easy to get your hands on a free-from-chocolate egg this year, and many of the major supermarkets have got on the bandwagon and are offering dairy-free products. You can get a vegan Easter egg with chocolate orange discs from Asda and Tesco even has a white chocolate egg with buttons on offer. Or for something more luxurious check out the little delights made by Booja Booja. Failing that you can make your own delicious vegan Easter treats. Here are some of my favourite recipes – you’ll find sweet treats at the top and Easter lunch recipes at the end:
If I could find something other than twelve orders of fries, that would be great. 1. You’re always introduced as “The Vegan” every time you go out to eat.
2. Then you have to explain what that means six thousand times.
3. So everyone apologizes for eating dead animals and inviting you to a restaurant that serves meat.
4. Then you feel guilty for being “that guy” who asks the waiter for special dietary options.
5. And you ask the waiter if something is vegan, but you don’t trust them to know the answer.
6. So you spend 20 minutes searching the menu for something you could possibly veganize.
7. But you realize French Fries and Side Salad with no cheese are your only options.
8. And you still have to try to figure out which dressings are “clean.”
9. You then sit through the entire meal enduring jokes about your food.
Children aren’t the only ones who wait for the Easter Bunny to bring them a basketful of treats — grown-ups look forward to it, too! After all, who doesn’t like all the special candies and desserts that come with Easter? Chocolates, candies, and vegan marshmallows are a few of the all-time favorite goodies for Easter morning. But, let’s not forget about the dessert that follows Easter dinner!
President Trump rolled back a trio of regulations Monday, including protections for hibernating bears in Alaska. The Obama-era rule from the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) prohibited certain hunting tactics that target “predator” animals likes bears and wolves while they are inside Alaska’s national preserves. This included a ban on hunters using airplanes. Trump overturned the rule Monday, handing control of the hunting regulations over to Alaska state officials who have shown an eagerness to control predator populations as a way to protect other animals such as deer. But animal rights activists say this will open the door to hunters snatching hibernating bears and wolves out of their dens, or even killing them in front of their cubs.
Veganism is everywhere! Celebs are giving up meat and dairy all over the place, and, of course, they’re preaching it to the masses. Then, there are celebrity vegans who, preachy or not, were into the vegan diet long before it became the “in” thing to do. Here is a ranking of them, in order of strictness:
