The only vegan food in the whole airport, at Starbucks. Dry and disgusting but what choice do I have besides starving for the next 7 hours? Corfu, here I come! #vegan

Esther the Wonder Pig’s foot
Did you know that at the bottom of their hoofs, pigs have soft pads just like dogs? I was stroking Esther’s leg and was surprised at how beautifully tender it was just like my dog’s paws.Did you know that Esther the Wonder Pig and other pigs at farm sanctuaries are so clean and smell like maple syrup (!!!) — the way dogs smell like corn chips?And that when you look in Esther the Wonder pig’s eyes, you see so much happiness and delight as a result of her being in a loving home and loved by everyone?The tragedy of the pigs we see in the transport trucks becomes all the more stark: their hoofs are on filthy floors; they smell sickly and horrid coming from cramped and filthy warehouses; and their eyes are filled with terror, fear, confusion and worry.We need to tell both stories: the stories of the Esther’s of the world and of the 99.9999999999999% of the pig victims being wrongly exploited for slaughter.
Please choose veganism for Esther, and for the millions of pigs who were not as lucky.

Esther the Wonder Pig’s foot

Did you know that at the bottom of their hoofs, pigs have soft pads just like dogs? I was stroking Esther’s leg and was surprised at how beautifully tender it was just like my dog’s paws.

Did you know that Esther the Wonder Pig and other pigs at farm sanctuaries are so clean and smell like maple syrup (!!!) — the way dogs smell like corn chips?

And that when you look in Esther the Wonder pig’s eyes, you see so much happiness and delight as a result of her being in a loving home and loved by everyone?

The tragedy of the pigs we see in the transport trucks becomes all the more stark: their hoofs are on filthy floors; they smell sickly and horrid coming from cramped and filthy warehouses; and their eyes are filled with terror, fear, confusion and worry.

We need to tell both stories: the stories of the Esther’s of the world and of the 99.9999999999999% of the pig victims being wrongly exploited for slaughter.

Please choose veganism for Esther, and for the millions of pigs who were not as lucky.

Before I went vegetarian, I did not like broccoli and cauliflower, I had never tasted avocadoes, never thought about mixing in nuts and seeds with my food. Never really appreciated the sweetness of fruits and orange veggies.
Before I went vegan, I had never experimented with dates and peanut butter, never realized that dark chocolate is so much tastier than milk chocolate and so much more satisfying. Never knew how ice cream and yummy cookies can be made out of a bunch of over ripe bananas, which you got for free. Never guessed how magical cashews are and how they can be turned into cheesy sauces or dips, or that almonds make the best white crumbly cheese. I had never really appreciated hummus, delicious homemade pesto and the yumminess of smoothies.
I discovered chia and flax seeds, which are excellent egg replacers and thickeners, Who knew oats left to soak overnight could be so good?
No, vegetarianism and veganism are not limiting. They just open you up to a whole new world. And the awesome feeling of knowing that you’re living healthily while leaving less marks on mother earth, and hurting no animals is irreplaceable.
