excerpt of the week

“We don’t need our mother’s milk as adults, just like grown cows don’t need their mother’s milk anymore. We are the only species on the planet that drinks the milk of another species. We could be putting gorilla milk on our cereal or having zebra milk and cookies. Why cows’ milk? Using the animal that produces the largest quantity of milk but is more easily housed than an elephant means more money for farmers. It has nothing to do with health or nutrition. Again, it all comes back to money. The dairy industry is a multibillion-dollar industry based on brilliant marketing and the addictive taste of milk, butter, and cheese. It has convinced most doctors, dietitians, consumers, and government agencies that we need cows’ milk.”

  1. What advice would you give for someone who wants to eat vegan to lose weight (if it happens) and gain more energy? What are some examples of quick to-go vegan snacks? Any vegan cookbook recommendations?
