‘Meat’ Pastels.

These pastels may look yummy and absolutely scrumptious – from the outside. But you would not divulge from a restaurant that served  ‘meat’. Why? – ‘meat’ – all meat comes from violence. ‘Meat’ no matter which specie, they all are farmed from violence, from pain and suffering  – all wanted to live,  all who’s lives were taken away from them. You do not want to consume violence. Let’s be clear – if you as a ‘meat’ eater where served up these delightful looking pastels with minced ‘meat’ in spicy savoury gravy – not even the most distinguished of palettes could establish who’s flesh it was within that pastry. If that thought stops you dead in your tracks – you want to go vegan. Most of all you want to go vegan for ethical reasons.

Becoming a much more common occurrence in todays world, the behind the scenes in ‘meat’ kitchens around the world where violence is commonplace, and no prejudice against any particular specie is acknowledged – where all specie are mere commodities, ‘food’, palette pleasures, innocent creatures to do with as man pleases, slaves, trinkets and toys. It therefore serves as no shock anymore when I hear that customers at restaurants such as Rio de Janeiro snack bar were unwittingly eating pastries made from the meat of stray dogs. Officers investigating the popular fast food house reportedly found boxes containing the frozen carcasses of dozens of dogs. The canines, which appeared to have been killed with blows to the head (no different to that of any other slaughter facility after all killing is killing), were used for the fillings of ‘pastels’, a traditional Brazilian stuffed pastry which is deep-fried and normally made with ground beef. Does that make the fact that it was sold as ground ‘beef’ any better or worse than the fact that it was dog, or even may have been cat or even had a bit of ground up ‘human’ hand in it – they are all ‘corpses’ –  ‘dead decaying flesh’. You don’t want to be eating any meat at all. Why? – When you eat ‘meat’, you encourage further violence by fuelling demand for flesh and certainly more variety of it.  

Moving on with this particular recent incident and according to police, owner of this shameful restaurant Van Ruilonc admitted to making the snacks from dog meat, adding that the animals were strays he had rounded up from streets in the city, which incidentally, will host next year’s Olympic Games. Van Ruilonc sees no difference in which ‘meat’ he serves up, it has all become just food to him – therein lays the moral issue. And I have to ask where do you draw the line, my simple response is – when you go vegan. When you stop eating, you stop wearing, you stop exploiting animals – they shall stop suffering. It’s quite simple – as long as you are consuming pigs, sheep, chickens, cows, fish, eggs, dairy etc – people shall be throwing in dogs, cats, rats, and any other inconceivable, unthinkable piece of flesh out there into the mix, because they can and because you have and are creating a demand for it. Violence, torture, and suffering shall go on for as long as you don’t go vegan.

Ruilonc, 32, is reportedly one of a group of Chinese businessmen who own dozens of pastry houses in Rio de Janeiro, including at least one in the beachside tourist district of Copacabana. I can only imagine and shudder how he and many others have managed to keep dog populations at bay within the districts attached to his charming ‘meatier’ pastry houses.
Lets be clear he was not caught out for his so called delicious ‘beef’ pastels – he was caught out for his slavery trade and trafficking of human beings, but then again what would one expect from an individual who exploits animals – after all humans are merely slaves and animals still. A rather daunting thought, one that I have heard many a comment – he may have been adding human flesh to the mix, then again, no one would ever have known the difference. The discovery at the eatery in Rio’s northern district of Parada de Lucas was made after officers arrived to investigate claims that trafficked Chinese workers were forced to live and work in slave-like conditions. Police found a cage in the back of the establishment where workers were incarcerated, and made to work 18 hours a day without pay. Public prosecutor Guadalupe Louro Couto said officers were shocked at what they found. He stated that he’d seen lots of bad things in his life time, but what he saw in that ‘meat’ pastry house was worse than everything he had ever witnessed. To start with, there was a cell, like a jail, with bars and padlock, set up inside the snack bar, where the workers were imprisoned. Apart from this, they lived with the stench of dead dogs, which were kept in the same room. He couldn’t stand it,  started to feel ill and asked to leave. When they started to open the polystyrene boxes, they saw the frozen dogs, they were perplexed. There were  so many violent various crimes being committed there.
Restaurants – common to all businesses watch their profit margins first and foremost. They buy competitively and as cost effectively where possible, in this case they kill right off the street to plumb up their volumes. When it comes to meat – all meat,  is derived from unsanitary conditions and is handled by so many bacteria laden hands, surfaces, and instruments, no matter which specie was brought to slaughter. The unsavoury rot on all carcass cannot be washed off under a tap as would dust from an apple. You must know that when you eat meat – you risk eating the unknown, you risk eating the dead,  you risk your health, and you risk further climate change. But most of all you put every animals life at risk .
If you say that you love animals, and you really mean what you say – you go vegan for them first and foremost before you take on any other action, going vegan for them is going to make all the difference to those whom you do not eat, to those whom you do not wear, and to all those whom you do not exploit, going vegan is going to make the difference to those who want to live –  all other nonviolent actions shall fall into their proper place thereafter.  Going vegan is easy.  It’s healthy for them, it’s healthy for you , and – it’s healthy for the environment.
Wishing all a ‘Happy Earth Day – every day.

Yes, all animals do feel.

This image was taken on a “kill” line inside a slaughterhouse. It shows two cows seeking comfort in one another while awaiting slaughter. ‘I don’t know how to wake people up. My heart is irreparably broken’.

Have you been to a kill shelter, a slaughter facility or any other facility that kills living individuals on a fast moving conveyor belt. No – why not make a point of finding out how your ‘meat’ arrives from farm to your plate. It’s not a pretty sight – most would need a bucket to hurl into most could not watch individuals suffer –  most would throw up twice at the sight and stench of the flowing blood – that’s how violent it is. For anyone that says that they love animals – this emotional experience shall never leave your thoughts so much so that you would never touch carcass again.

If you ever doubted whether animals had thoughts emotions – standing witness to such atrocity shall forever stain your memory. Every single muscle in their bodies freeze with sheer terror as yours would should you be so violently assaulted. Animals are no different from us. We feel – they feel. We think – they think. We cry – they cry. We bleed – they bleed. We feel pain and suffering – so do they. As they are forced into the room of death – they cry they scream they try to escape they panic they are terrified – as you would in a terror attack.

Next time you look down at your plate – envisage the body of whom you have chosen to eat, give her a name –  she had one, she had a family she wanted to live – think about the horror that individual endured – ask yourself whether you feel morally comfortable in partaking encouraging such pain and suffering – think about how your actions amplify their violent screams around the world. See them hear them acknowledge them. They are the same as us. They have language they have emotion –  they have will to live love connect.

All animals share cognitive senses. There is no need for vivisection to prove this – this is simple logic. We are animals – put yourself in their place close your eyes and fathom the horror the torture you are putting them through – the very same dread that no one deserves. Tears run deep when we are in pain – so do theirs. They have tears they suffer pain. If you really care and you say that you love animals – go vegan for them. Stop the violence stop the slaughter stop the pain and suffering, make a difference change the world. Only you can do this for them –  they are waiting for your action. Go vegan.

Switching from dairy to vegan alternatives.

Switching from dairy to healthy plant based alternatives is easier than you think! All you really need to know is that there are hundreds of  alternatives out there! Many people are still are not aware of this as yet. We have spoken to so many people who have no knowledge of healthy milk alternatives, and still are not aware of the health risks associated with the consumption of dairy.

It has been estimated that 75% of today’s modern population is allergic to dairy! The dairy industries around the world are responsible for many debilitating illnesses caused to man through the push and continued advocacy of dairy products. False and misleading advertising campaigns for profit gain and consumption has been the cause of immune system breakdowns, excess mucous increase, allergen rise, increase in osteoporosis, bone fractures, operations, hypertension, obesity, heart attacks, cancer, flu’s and pneumonia, dementia, arthritis, herpes simplex, diabetes, high blood pressure. The list goes on and on and yet the ‘dairy’ industry continues to punt their toxins onto unsuspecting humans as humans demand it. It a vicious cycle of violence.

We cannot wait for anyone to change the laws. We cannot wait for anyone to make the change for us. We cannot wait for ‘welfare’ groups and associations who continue to promote ‘happy exploitation’ – who punt their animal products to us. No such thing exists. Animals are being exploited and they are running out of time.  We have to take the information that we have today and run with it, we have to make the change ourselves. It has become logical that we have to start thinking for ourselves.  What we do with this information is up to us, and those who are willing to listen and make the switch shall benefit soonest!

With an ever increasing population of 7 billion people around the globe – rising exponentially, 55 billion land animals are being tortured annually currently. They are being raped, mishandled, bred, and chopped up solely for profit margins, and promoted for unnecessary and detrimental palette pleasures. The  tragedy that is happening to nonhuman beings is outcry of grief. Governments are doing nothing to stop this. Those figures are growing rapidly. Animals are slaughtered at an alarming rate and placed onto industrial conveyor belts that are moving faster than the speed of light to keep up with public demand. No care is given to them, they have become profit making machines with numbers worse in volume to that of Auschwitz.

Antibiotics are pumped into them, chemicals are added to their foods, and absolute garbage is being fed to them in order to save on costs. This in turn is being consumed by those who choose to eat and drink it. Milk is not only not nutritious, it is toxic, it is filled with antibiotics, chemicals, blood and puss, but most of all it is fuelled with absolute cruelty and violence – breaking down peoples immune systems – damaging the ecosystems that we have become so reliant upon.

There are hundreds of healthy alternatives out there, there are healthy solutions and everyone deserves the right to this knowledge. Try alternative products made of Soy milk, Oat milk, Coconut milk, Almond milk, Flax milk, Quinoa milk, Hazelnut milk, Rice milk, Cashew milk, 7 Grain milk, Sunflower milk, Hemp milk. You may not be open to such alternatives at first, or they may taste a little odd to some, but you shall never know until you try them! You can find wonderful vanilla or chocolate versions, try those too! All it takes is knowing that these are out there, trying them, and knowing that whilst you take dairy out of your diet,  give yourself a 2-3 week allowance for your palette to adjust! Once you have made up your mind that you no longer want to be a part of this cruelty, and you are concerned about maintaining your health, as well as the health of the environment, the switch is so easy! You shall never go back again as your body becomes ‘cleaner’, healthier and is attracted to cleaner ‘fuel sources’.

There is no need to support the dairy industry. We do not benefit from dairy at all. Yet so many continue to suffer. Know your rights, acknowledge those who are continually abused – do something meaningful about it, give your own bodies and minds a chance to heal to become healthier. Every single recipe that you are so used to making using ‘dairy’ can be replaced by a non dairy alternative – every single one! (cheeses, milks, yoghurts etc).  A great hint when looking for recipes on the net is to type ‘vegan’ before each recipe request – that shall point you in the right direction. Make the switch today, right now, and share your knowledge with everyone!
