The Green Side Café – South Africa, Randburg, Greenside – vegan

The drooling insert is that of handcrafted phyllo shell, filled with speciality stuffing made according to seasonal ingredients and off course made with love, accompanied with organically grown edamame. You will need to make a few reservations ahead in allowance to enjoy your way through their award winning delicious dishes from their superbly selected menu — at The Greenside Café.  Do check out their Facebook page here: The Green Side Café  , give them a like and hit share! If you’ve not had the pleasure of being spoilt there yet, make a point of it, you will not be disappointed! For those who have, have by default become and remained regular patrons who already know that Green Side Café is the selected peoples choice for superb quality food, excellent personal service, in quaint surrounding nestled in the heart of Greenside, the Greenside Café is a vegan haven. The food is prepared with integrity, love and mindfulness for human beings, other beings, and the planet.

Greenside Café is encouraging people to “Go Green, Be Veg and Save the Planet.” The impact that a vegetarian, and even better, a vegan diet has on our planet is profound. It reduces the carbon footprint because the meat and dairy industry require deforestation, huge amounts of water, most of the world’s crops (for animal feed), antibiotics and hormones to produce meat and dairy. Animal agriculture uses up to 70% of the available clean water on earth.

Saving the planet one meal at a time

 

Greenside Café owner, Dimitri Gutjahr, prides himself in his food combinations and claims that his customers love the way they feel, and the abundant energy they receive after eating at the Greenside café.

“My biggest compliment” he says, “is the number of non-vegetarians who come to the restaurant because they love the taste and freshness of the food. They feel it’s delicious and know it’s healthy”.

IF WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT SAVING OUR PLANET, we have to change. The Greenside cafe mission is to show people that the vegan diet is delicious, exciting and filled with endless variety. We are what we eat and the Greenside Café is all about health and happiness.

South Africa! Shop local for vegan products – online here!

If you live in South Africa – then this link is for you! Why are we posting this you may ask – because we care. We care about animals, we care about our environment, and we care about you and your health. We want you to go green! Shopping online has never been easier.

Taking good care, living consciously with those around us, both human and non, means less violence, less harm, to everyone that we have the capability to care so much about. Everyday we sob our hearts out at the harm, the horror, that is unnecessarily inflicted upon the animal kingdom, we ask ourselves how can we change it for them – what can we do to stop their suffering and pain.

Everyday, we read, we hear about climate change, methane Co2, how over 51% of this noxious gas, is derived from the animal agricultural sect. We hear how the ice caps and glaciers are melting, how we are destroying the forests, how we are acidifying the oceans, poisoning our waterways, polluting our air, and destroying the fundamental ecosystems that we have all become so reliant upon, and whole species who are going extinct.

There are solutions, we’re not at a complete and utter loss – there are phenomenal alternative ways we can refine our lives, to improve and change the tragic situation, as South Africans we are capable of embracing the concept of going green, to start living consciously, to reverse this violence, violence to animals, violence to ourselves, and violence to our mother earth.

We encourage you to check out this link offered by Faithful to Nature – your online organic shop. Check out the hundreds of vegan products on offer here in South Africa, on our very own soil – our land, and know, that what you purchase is free of animals, free of animal bi-products, free of harm, it’s organic – no chemicals or pesticides, environmentally safe and green.

We have spoken to so many people who say that it is difficult to go vegan and hard to live consciously – it’s not. Going vegan, living our lives nonviolently, has never been easier, it’s just a simple mind switch. There are mega products which have hit local supermarkets today! And if you can’t find them in some stores – you will find them here on line. Vegan restaurants are booming, stores are getting with the programme, so many more South Africans are starting to embrace this gorgeous way of life today. The movement is growing exponentially, the markers are up – the demand Is growing. Join in, have fun, live life ethically, make the switch, make the difference! Let this be the day that you say – ” I have had enough of violence, this is my stand, my choice to no longer be a part of violence. I am going vegan for ethical reasons. I am doing it for animal rights”.

More reasons to go vegan.

In China 7000 magnificent moon bears, their limbs torn off in traps are imprisoned for 26 years as a catheter drains bile into a bucket which the Chinese drink. 26 years the bears go insane.

In Korea dogs are beaten to death in the market place because the butchers believe that pain and suffering makes the meat taste.

In South Africa 5000 tamed orphaned lions are killed with guns, spears or torn apart and they call it sport.

In Canada 300 000 baby seal pups are clubbed and skinned alive on the ice – their tiny hearts still beating.

In Australia animals are sent on death ships to the middle east where their eyes are stabbed out and their tendons are slashed.

In Asia dogs are suspended on hooks and skinned alive for fur trim coats in the west.

We treat our oceans as our private pantry and as a public toilet.  The Pacific is now so full of junk and plastic and human feces – it has created a floating island bigger than India.

Dolphins and whales are stabbed to death in the shallows of Japan, Denmark, Norway, Iceland and huge bays are blood red.

Factory farms spew chemicals into the oceans creating hippoctic dead zones totalling one million square kilometres. Our oceans are so full of toxic acids – it’s killing coral, ocean animals and plants.

So called enviable dairy calves who cannot be sold for veal are killed by farther –  hitting them on the head with a hammer or jumping on their ribs and crushing their hearts.

Billions of bouncing little chicks are mechanically ground up in mincers simply because they are male.

Religious sacrifices around the world make the 21 st century look like the new dark ages.

Children around the world suffer and starve because their crop plants now produce meat for farmers.

The oceans are dying in our time. By 2048 all of our fisheries shall be dead – poisoned by the chemicals by the livestock industry. Trillions of fish are ground up into pellets to feed to livestock. Vegetarian cows are now the world largest ocean predators.

In human history only one hundred human beings have ever lived. Seven Billion humans live today and yet we humans torture and kill 2 billion sentient living beings every week.

10 000 species are wiped out every year because of the actions of one species and we are now facing the sixth mass extinction in cosmological history. If any other organism did this a biologist would call it a virus.

It is a crime of unimaginable proportions.

The world is crying out for only two things – leadership and the truth. Listen to the friends who tell you the truth – even if it hurts.

All it takes is for good people to do nothing. Doing nothing is no longer an option.
