Kristin  Mother of 2 humans and 5 dogs, student of life, vegan (yeah it's worth mentioning)

I think we forget that humans share this planet with animals who are vital to the health of the earth. If humans ceased to exist today, earth would flourish, and if animals like bees and ants were extinct, earth would die. We need to use our resources to save the planet we live on now so that our children and their families have a place to live. It sounds crazy that we are looking for other planets to live on when we can just take care of the one we have now. Otherwise well just destroy the new ones too. #govegan #earthday #vegan #savetheplanet

I'm sharing this video for 2 reasons: 1, I am against elective surgery, and 2, I have a dog who has his ears cropped. In life, we don't have control over everything and have to deal with consequences if our action and inaction. I have a pitbull that does not have cropped ears and he is beautiful, I have a pitbull that was purchased by my boyfriend, and he insisted that he crop his ears despite me begging and pleading for him not to. He was assured by vets that he will not feel pain, receive pain meds and blah blah. But that was not good enough for me. I think he is beautiful with out his ears but that was completely unnecessary to do to him. I think we should ban all elective surgeries. Why have something be breed standard if that is not the natural look of the dogs?? Humans ruin everything they touch!!! #govegan #stopanimalabuse #stopanimalcruelty #banelectivesurgeries #teamfloppyears #pitbull #pitbullsofinstagram #earcropping

#usefultips #govegan #vegan I needed this cuz I hate wasting food

So I'm gonna use this platform to rant about nonvegans. I know there is a rumor going around that there are angry vegans out there and sometimes I am angry. But most times I try to make teachable moments instead of having a heated discussion. Today, someone I know brought food to the doctors office to feed everyone. He brought typical southern favorites: fried chicken, potato salad, pulled pork, baked beans with pork, hush puppies and sweet tea. I asked him if he had brought anything he thought I could eat and he said yeah, baked beans and potato salad. Kindly I said, sorry I wouldn't be able to because there are eggs in the potato salad and meat in the beans. He was shocked and said "wow you really don't eat anything do you" and I replied that I eat plenty. I reminded him that when he makes his own plate of food, he puts more than meat, eggs, and cheese on his plate and that there are more than 2 food groups. This comment made me so angry for a few reasons. 1, I did not make a comment asking why he brought the type of food he did, when it is unhealthy, even for an omnivore. 2, I did not question his food choices, try to make him feel bad about what he eats, nor did I try to convert him to veganism. All I asked was what he had. I do not owe anyone an explanation as to why I am choosing to be vegan. I will have a discussion all day long about the benefits of it, and how people can make ethical choices everyday. I also, am a work in progress, learning how to be a better vegan every day. I want to be able to eat what I want and not be subjected to a debate where the meat eater assumes that they are going to show me that eating meat is the way, when I was eating meat most of my life! I do not harass people who eat poorly, do not harass me for eating healthy, and ethically, and like I give a damn!

Hands down, the best meal I've had in awhile. All I did was warm it up and put it in a bun and I was so satisfied!! #jackfruit #thejackfruitcompany #barbecue #vegan #govegan

Where does the material for purses, coats, shoes, belts, and hats come from? In most cases it comes from tortured animals. I have been vegan for a year, and before that I was a hoarder for #coach purses I absolutely loved them and my most prized possession was a genuine snake skin bag that was worth over $800 and I had to have the wallet to match. After going vegan, I had no idea what to do with these bags. I didn't know if I should throw them away, recycle them, or do nothing. So I did nothing. Today, I started to look through all of my bags, only to find that majority of them were man made materials, until I got to the designer bags. What's sad, is that these big names care so little about their materials, and so much about profits, that some of their bags are even made out of calf leather. It sickens me that thousands of my own money went into this company, but I will tell you this, I'll never ever contribute to the suffering or mistreatment of an animal because of my love for purses. There are too many alternatives that are beautiful for me to reason that it's ok to splurge once and awhile. Watch the video and hopefully you'll never indulge again either. #fuckfur #vegan #veganfortheanimals #fuckleather #savesnakes #savereptiles #savetheanimals#alternativematerial #peta

I was so lucky to find #veganturkeyslices because I did miss having my favorite turkey and cheese sandwich. Now I have #vegancheese and can enjoy a nice sandwich for lunch while I write my term papers. #govegan #whatveganseat #veganlifestyle #plantbased #plantpowered
