    Happy Vegan New Year!

    So we have all made our share our New Year’s resolutions that we thought at the time we could keep but turned out to fizzle over time. Exercise more, stop smoking, volunteer, eat better, watch less tv read more etc. While all are all worthy of our efforts, they mostly benefit us and a handful of people around us.

    What if we could make one change in our life that would not only directly benefit our health (physical, mental and spiritual), but stop the brutal killing of billions of animals in factory farms, help feed millions of starving children around the world, allow us to reconnect with our heart and soul. I can’t think of any other action that could impact millions, even billions of living beings.
    Can you?

    We can all stop the killing fields, the concentration camps, the government subsidized torture chambers, the next pandemic and simply chose to live and let live.
    All prophets regardless of your faith, have told us to live and let live, to love ALL beings as ourselves and to live a compassionate life.

    And in return, you get to join the illustrious ranks of the famous and powerful celebrities that have done just that, switched to a plant-based diet.
    Drum roll please:

    President Bill Clinton, Steve Wynn, Russel Simons…

    In the world of entertainment:
    Ellen Degeneres, Martha Stewart and Oprah are working on it! Alanis Morissette, Anne Hathaway, Tobey Maquire, a.k.a. Spiderman, Alec Baldwin, Alicia Silverstone and many many more.

    In the world of sport: all-star John Salley, Mike Tyson, Venus and Serena Williams and many more.

    So don’t you think that it is time for this New Year (which according to the Maya could be our last one!) to decide the course of our life? Will you follow the path of the Saints by loving and respecting all life and beings on the planet? It is your call but if not now, then when?

    Just do it!
    Set an example for others to follow.
    Save lives so that your life will be saved.
    Live simply so that others wil simply live.
    Because, as we sow, so shall we reap.
