I could never go vegan they said. It’s too hard they said. I couldn’t give up pizza, wings, eggs, cheesesteaks, ice cream, (insert favorite food item here) they said!
The truth is, most vegans have uttered those very words at some point. We too thought going vegan meant making sacrifices in our daily lives, ultimately inconveniencing us to the extent that a vegan lifestyle wasn’t practical or convenient. We blindly assumed that veganism “wasn’t for us” or that consuming animal products “wasn’t that bad”. We convinced ourselves that these animals were raised with love and compassion. That they didn’t suffer. We allowed ourselves to believe there was a nice way to kill someone and that our desire for their flesh, secretions and ovulations outweighed the importance of someone’s life.
We didn’t miraculously wake up one day devoid of the desire to eat our favorite foods. We learned the truth about these industries and knew we could no longer support them in good conscience. We took off the blinders and educated ourselves about how harmful these industries are to our health, the devastation they inflict upon the environment and the abhorrent cruelty and suffering they inflict upon trillions of animals a year.
The good news, there’s never been an easier or more delicious time to be vegan. With plant based versions of your favorite foods and a wealth of easily accessible knowledge at your fingertips to guide you on your vegan journey, there is no reason to take the lives of animals.
Ditch the excuses and adopt a lifestyle that aligns with your code of ethics. If you care about animals, the planet or people, you must embrace veganism to live within your values.

These two little nuggets, Victoria and Lucky, have a big day tomorrow. They are going to get spayed at the ASPCA. After that, they will be ready for their forever home...together! They deserve the very best home because they are true angels!!! ❤️❤️They are beyond precious and sweet and loving and playful! And they would probably not be alive today if @josydiva (who’s fostering their mom Sheeba) didn’t rescue them from a pile of garbage! If you’d like to sponsor one of them, it’s $60 for each kitten which covers spay, vaccines, microchip and fiv/felv testing. Thank you!!! #kittensofinstagram#kittens#adoptdontshop#animallover#spayandneuter#catsagram#tortie#tortiesofinstagram#nyc#harlem#rescuecat#adopt

Pinkie Pie is starting to grow! .
I'll have to get her to fire up one of these days as I have yet to see how dark he can get!!!
شبیه عکساییه که مامانامون با یه سالگی ما دارن 😂
حسش برای من دقیقن همونه
من بلدم عشق بورزم به تمام موجودات که تیکه ای از خود خدا هستن
و همین باعث میشه دنیا برای من جای اروم تری باشه
و به خودم بیشتر خوش بگذره 🐶❤
