1. Moms Should Want to Raise their Kids Vegan
M.S., R.D., director of nutrition education at the Physicians
Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), explains that even though
abundant scientific evidence indicates that a plant-based diet is the
healthiest diet for children, still many physicians and "experts"
discourage parents from not feeding meat, dairy and eggs to their
kids. As Levin points out, plant-based diets help prevent most chronic
diseases that plague our society.
Why Moms Should Want Vegan Children and share with friends and
Of course a diet that shows compassion to God's
animals and helps us celebrate life joyfully and healthfully should be
the one we all adopt. After all, our loving Creator has blessed us
with such a variety of tasty plant-based foods that really most of us
have no need of animal products to survive.
2. This Week’s
The plain fact is that the planet does not need
more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers,
healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs
people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage
willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And
these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.

3. Meat-Eating is
Seen as Masculine
New studies about the reasons of why fewer
males are vegetarian or vegan compared to women indicate that
meat-eating males tend to be seen as more masculine. Researchers
examined 23 languages that use gendered pronouns and discovered that
meat-related metaphors were also more closely associated to the male
Meat-eating males considered more masculine than vegans and
vegetarians, per study Meat-eating males considered more masculine
than vegans and vegetarians, per study:
highlights the importance of the availability of meat analogs in the
market in order to help dismiss the myth that equates meat with
masculinity. From a personal point of view I can say that compassion
is probably the most attractive trait in men!
4. This Week’s
(RSV) Revelations 21:4-5
'...he will wipe
away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither
shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former
things have passed away.' And he who sat upon the throne said,
"Behold, I make all things new.' Also he said, 'Write this, for these
words are trustworthy and true.'
We should strive and
actively participate in the reconciliation of God's Creation, until we
reach a time where there will be no more suffering and pain. Choosing
a plant-based diet is a testament of how much suffering we can
alleviate, in humans and God’s animals.
5. Beyond Meat
"Beyond Meat" is a new company based in Maryland and whose founder,
Ethan Brown, claims to have developed an alternative to chicken meat
that tastes similar to the real thing. Additionally, this meat
alternative is supposed to be cheaper than those already on the
market. Next month, consumers will place their verdict: The Whole
Foods Market chain plans to start selling prepared food using “Beyond
Meat” chicken in Northern California in June.
Betting Better Fake Chicken Met Will Be As Good As The Real Thing:
Although our Creator has blessed us with an amazing abundance
and variety of delicious, healthy plant-based foods, I think it’s
important that meat analogs are available to help people make the
transition more easily to a plant-based diet. Moreover, meat analogs
also help people reduce their meat-intake even if they don’t fully
adopt a plant-based diet.
