I'm trying

to eat better for the animals. I gave up animal products (meat, dairy, eggs, fish)on my 21 day cleanse. It wasn't quite as hard as I thought it was going to be and now after lots of reading and contemplation I've decided to give up meat unless it is raised on a farm where it can lead a humane life.

This means not eating meat when I eat out and most likely paying a higher price for farm raised meats, but I think it's the right thing to do.
We, as Americans, just throw our heads back and open up our mouths like baby birds and let others feed us without knowing what we are really eating and how it gets to our table......I'm so guilty of that, but now that I'm more aware I'm going to try and honor the animals.
They (animals on factory farms) are so overlooked and factory farms are BAD for the animals and us. I can't KNOW about this and NOT share it and NOT try to do something in my own small way.
Factory farm meat and eggs are the meat and eggs you buy at your local grocery chain and mainly the meat and eggs used in chain restaurants....I know this is hard to watch and hard to hear, but it's part of becoming aware.


  1. Way to go girl. I am on day 9 of eating vegan. Thanks for lending me the book Skinny Bitch. It is really an eye opener. It isn't as hard as I thought it would be. Really!

  2. good for you sweetheart! you are an inspiration!

  3. Check out more about humane family farming at!

  4. I wish I could watch the video, but I would not be able to function for days, I don't tolerate animal abuse well at all.
    I am going to do research on eating only farm raised meat. I don't eat much meat anyways so it won't be hard for me. I love vegtables. Do you have any good sites or books to recommend.
    I'm glad your making awarness of this. Bless you
