Potatoes are so versatile, you can bake them fry them, or whatever you like.
My go to is cooking them in a pan and then adding onion, green peppers and sometimes some beans or lentils.
It is quick cheap and easy.
Takes about 10-15 minutes and you can switch it up so it never gets boring
You can use different seasonings and different sauces. I use:
Salt and pepper
Cooking instructions:I put a little bit of olive oil in a pan. Heat it up and cut up the potatoes and cook them for a couple minutes. As the potatoes are cooking cut up your green pepper and onion or whatever else you want to add and then cook it all for 5-10 minutes and add your seasoning and sauce and you’re set
We could easily save the world and make it a better place for everyone. Everyone could be healthier and happier and we could have more joy and compassion.
This method doesn’t cost us anything; in fact it saves us a lot of money and it saves trillions of lives.
We could solve world hunger and diminish the leading health related diseases and illnesses.
All we have to do is switch from breeding and eating animals, to eating a plant-based diet.
But a Plant-Based Diet Will Take up More Land and Resources??
False. False. False.
The plant products are already produced, but then fed to animals so we can kill the animal and satisfy our taste buds.
What do you think these animals are eating? There are over 70,000,000,000 animals being bred at a time and they obviously eat way more than humans. We are bringing in 70,000,000,000 more mouths to and they eat wayyyy more than us.
Just the 1,500,000,000 cows we bring in to existence need 135,000,000,000 pounds of food daily.
The human population needs about 21,000,000,000 pounds of food daily.
50% of the grain and legumes we grow we feed to the animals. 90% of the soy we grow we feed to animals. (Cowspiracy)
82% of the worlds starving children live in countries where we use the land to grow food for our livestock. So they see all this food being grown but then we just give it to the animals because we can’t profit off of the poor starving children. (Cowspiracy)
We could feed every human being on the planet a healthy diet if we stopped giving all of our food to livestock and if we stopped using all of the land for grazing.
What About Protein Bro?
We could create 15x more protein sources on any given land if we grew plants for humans to eat instead of using it for animals. (Cowspiracy)
We would even have so much excess land left over that we could just let it grow back to forests.
To feed a person on a plant based vegan diet for a year requires 1/6 of an acre of land. (Cowspiracy)
Feeding a person on an average American diet that includes dairy, eggs and meat requires 18x as much land.
You can produce 37,000 pounds of plant food on 1.5 acres of land. (Cowspiracy)
But you can only produce 375 pounds of meat on 1.5 acres of land. (Cowspiracy)
-That is 10x less food just so we can kill and animal and it eat’s flesh.
Livestock covers 45% of the earths total land. (Cowspiracy)
A plant based diet requires 1/18th the amount of land. And the diet is healthier and can feed every person in the world. And it doesn’t require the immoral killing of trillions of living beings.
These billions of animals create soooo much waste. Imagine how much cleaner this planet would be without the poop of billions of animals.
Just in the U.S. alone, livestock creates 116,000 pounds of waste per second. (Cowspiracy)
Animal agriculture is responsible for up tp 91% of the Amazon Rainforest Destruction. (Cowspiracy)
1-2 acres of rainforest are destroyed every second for livestock. (Cowspiracy)
What About Farmers’ Jobs?
People say farmers will lose their jobs. But the farmers can switch from farming animals to farming plants and they will get incentives.
I don’t know about you but I would much rather grow plants rather than raping and slaughtering innocent animals.
It’s Common Sense
All of this food already exists. All of these plants already exist.
But instead of just eating the plants ourselves, we force breed all of these animals in to existence.
So now we have almost 100,000,000,000 more mouths to feed. And these animals eat more than us.
We put these animals in terrible living conditions and pump them with 80% of our medicine and feed them 80% of our food, just so we can eat their dead body parts.
We are forced to use huge amounts of land just so they have a place to graze.
We are forced to clear out forests so they have places to live and we need more land to grow food since they eat more than us.
IF WE JUST ATE THE FOOD OURSELVES-THE FOOD THAT ALREADY EXISTS-THEN WE WOULD HAVE ENOUGH TO FEED THE WHOLE WORLD. BUT INSTEAD WE FEED IT TO THE BILLIONS OF ANIMALS AND ONLY GET 1/10 OF THE FOOD WE HAD IN THE FIRST PLACE.
And because of these actions rainforests are being cut down. Over half of the world is starving. Trillions of living beings are dying. And on and on.
I could go on and on about how damaging the consumption of dead animals is to the planet. And I could go on and on about how beneficial it will be for everyone to switch to a plant based diet.
But I think the point is clear and it is obvious which one you should choose.
I don’t expect everyone to go vegan overnight but I want you to start researching and slowly implementing the diet in to your life.
You can look at my blog for tips, advice, shopping lists, recipes, etc.
Here’s a good tip on how to start transitioning:
Facts taken from the film Cowspiracy and cowspiracy.com/facts
Right now, you have all the time in the world to do what you want. If you are bored, and all you do is sit around and complain, then you never lacked the time or money to do what you want to do with your life; you simply just aren’t living right.
The “Normal Life”
Nowadays you work almost your whole entire life at jobs you most likely do not enjoy just so you can retire at 65-70 years old.
But once you retire what are you going to do with your life?
You worked your whole entire life so you can make some money and enjoy your life “work-free.”
But you’ll end up just sitting around doing nothing and you’ll be bored and you’ll just complain. Because that is exactly what everyone is doing right now. (And don’t blame the stay at home order for your unhappiness)
Most people don’t even know why they do what they do. They just follow what everyone else does because it is “normal.”
You go to school, maybe college, and you work boring jobs to make all this money. Money that you spend on a house/apartment that you only get to use when you are sleeping. And when you do have free time to use the house that you work your ass off to pay for, you are bored and you don’t do anything except complain.
Or you save up a bunch of money to buy a nice vehicle. A nice vehicle you only use to drive to work-that place you hate.
So, to sum it up: you work at a job your whole life that you don’t even enjoy. You work there to make money for a house and a car, things you barely get to use, and when you do, you aren’t even happy.
Food and Material Objects
You spend the rest of your money on food and “things.”
Food that is killing you and making you lazier and less attractive. Food that you choose to eat because it satisfies your taste buds for a couple minutes. But it brings along fatigue, obesity, heart disease, cancer, etc. But it’s sooooo worth it because it tastes good for a couple seconds huh.
If you do make it to retirement; with the average diet and lifestyle nowadays, you will most likely be miserable and unhealthy and on a bunch of medication. You will be too lazy and unhealthy to even do anything with all that money you worked your whole entire life to save up.
You buy “things” that only make you happy for a couple seconds and then you take them for granted and just want the next best thing; the bigger and better thing. You are never satisfied with what you want, you always want more.
This is why you will never truly be happy. You work to make money so you can have more stuff. Stuff that brings along temporary happiness and then you are bored and want more.
It is a never ending cycle and you will spend your whole life wanting more and soon enough you’ll be dead and realize you were never actually happy, because you never appreciated what you did have, you only focused on things you wanted.
There is a cure for the coronavirus and just about every other pandemic virus. It is not Hydroxychloroquine or any other man made medicine. The cure is a plant-based diet.
A plant-based diet won’t cause these viruses/illnesses/diseases/pandemics because there is no consumption of dead animals
When you are on a plant-based diet you have a wayyyyyyyyyy lower risk of getting things like diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, cancer, etc.
People aren’t just dying from the coronavirus, they are dying because they have pre-existing health conditions. Their bodies are weak because of their unhealthy lifestyle, so when another virus comes in, their body gets overworked trying to fight off all of these diseases so they end up dying.
If people ate a plant-based diet these viruses wouldn’t start, and people wouldn’t be sick in the first place so there would be no worries.
When you have things like diabetes, heart disease, cancer, etc. it’s not just that illness that will kill you, you are putting yourself at risk from dying of other causes. You are weakening your body and your immune system.
Conclusion: the virus is not killing us; our unhealthy lifestyles are killing us. The virus just comes to finish you off, but you already signed the death note when you chose an unhealthy, pleasure-based diet.
1) Pandemics and viruses caused by the consumption of dead animals could be prevented if we stopped consuming dead animals
2) People are negatively effected by viruses, such as the coronavirus because they have pre-existing conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer, etc. -All of these conditions have a very high chance of being caused by an unhealthy diet
Stop Blaming China
People are blaming China for this. But everyone is to blame. Eating bats and pangolins is just as weird as eating pigs, chickens and cows. There is no difference. It is all immoral and unnecessary.
The U.S. has caused much deadlier diseases in the past because of the consumption of dead animal flesh.
Cows, pigs, and chickens have created much deadlier viruses and they will only keep getting worse if we continue these diets. (Mad cow disease, Swine flu, etc.)
Peace and Love
Not only will everyone be happier, healthier and more active on a plant-based diet.
We will also all be more compassionate and loving and peaceful.
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”-Mahatma Gandhi
How do we expect to all get along and have peace, when every day, we pay and support the immoral slaughter of millions of living beings?
The consumption of animals gives humans a feeling of superiority. We think we own everyone and everything on this planet.
This is our home, not a grocery store. We need to take care of the planet and stop being so selfish.
Pretty soon, there will be nothing left.
Plant-Based Diet Explained
So, what is a plant-based diet?
A plant-based diet is a diet in which you consume natural foods.
When people hear this they automatically think you just eat salad and vegetables. This is not true. Plant based foods are things like beans, oats, rice, grains (bread, pasta, etc.), cereal, seeds, nuts and nut butter, fruits, veggies, plant-based milk, and on and on.
There are endless possibilities and it is the healthiest and one of the cheapest diets you can follow and the best for the planet.
A Plant-based, vegan diet is the healthiest diet you can follow.
People always ask, but what does a vegan eat?
You should be asking what doesn’t a vegan eat?
And it’s only two things:
-and their secretions
Every other food is vegan.
Even the World Health Organization claims that a plant-based and a vegan diet is very healthy and it is suitable for everyone.
Pregnant women, children, infants, anybody; the plant-based diet is the healthiest diet for anyone out there.
But What If I don’t Want to Force my Child to be Vegan?
People always say they wouldn’t make their children be vegan because they should be able to choose for themselves and they’ll be missing out.
You force your kids to eat dead animals. You are making your child support the rape, torture and slaughter of billions of animals without them knowing. You are forcing them to be obese and have heart disease, high cholesterol, diabetes and cancer.
If your child had a choice I think they would rather be happy and healthy, and not support the immoral treatment of animals. I would hope you choose the same for your child.
If you wouldn’t show your child videos of what happens in a slaughterhouse and where their meat comes from then you shouldn’t be feeding it to them.
Plant-based diets aren’t just a fad, they are the future.
