Vegan Diet (Plant-based diet) is Affordable and Easy!

Many people assume that thriving on vegan diet is expensive. With some planning, it is very easy to thrive on vegan diet. I regularly buy brown rice, oats, beans, lentils , quinoa, spinach, apples, grapes, bananas, almonds, and walnuts from Costco. Sometimes, I purchase vegan ice cream, chocolates, rice milk , and tofu at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods Market. Buying seasonal fruits and vegetables is another great idea to save money...

PETA Protects Animals

 PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is an amazing organization for protect innocent animals. I think PETA has played a pivotal role in convincing people to thrive on plant-based diet (vegan)...

Thanks to Ingrid Newkirk, and thousands of PETA volunteers across the world for selfless service. Today, we don't see elephants and lions performing in circus, as PETA has worked for years to stop "animal cruelty". Thanks to PETA, millions of students are using interactive computer simulations instead of killing frogs , cats, and pigs during "animal dissection".

Please visit PETA to know more about their amazing work...

What we eat every day has an impact on our environment. People can combat global warming by eating plant-based food every day. United Nations is urging people to eat less meat and dairy products.

Today, I read a very interesting "Questions and Answers" about Global Warming, Solar Energy,  and Electric cars in New York Times.

October 2 - World Farms Animals Day

Mahatma Gandhi is a legend. Today, Mahatma Gandhiji's principles and ideas is followed by millions of people in India and across the world. President Barack Obama and Martin Luther King Jr consider Mahatma Gandhi as their inspiration.

Mahatma Gandhi was born more than a century ago on October 2 in Gujarat, India. Mahatma Gandhi followed the principle of Nonviolence to free India from the British.

Mahatma Gandhi had great respect for animals. When he was a young adult, he took a vow not to consume cow's milk after he came to know the cruel procedure, Phooka or Doom Dev. Unfortunately, this cruel procedure still takes place in many countries. Mahatma Gandhi says, "The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated." I'm sure Gandhi would advocate vegan diet (cruel-free diet) if he were alive today...

To honor Mahatma Gandhi, October 2 is celebrated as World Farms Animal Day. Thousands of people are motivated to go vegan on this day.
