Animals, Children, and Food: British Farmer's Son @theveganleo youtube: ME. King Shocks Vegan World Part 1 We're living in a nation Where there's growing condemnation Of what is done to those who cannot talk I was blind to all their pain so I couldn't feel the shame In that broken piece of body on my fork Then I wondered, could any child breed a bird that can't be wild? To eat its wings, take off its legs and its head? No. So we pay for hidden slaughter till we've addicted sons and daughters To our habit of eating the dead And it's not so very long, since who could see the wrong In breeding humans as slaves without pay It could be a woman without a vote Or killing a leopard for its coat Did we ever see the evil of the day? So do you think you're any better Now the animals we fetter, outnumber every human ten to one And many children hardly eat Because their food has fed your meat While the blame for this shame, you pass on So give me avocados And I'll eat tofu burgers You can even give me black bean curd But please don't give me bread If it's wrapping the dead The remains of the body of a bird For every piece of flesh you buy You're paying to breed the next to die By compassion, no longer are we led And for the cow, it's worse, I fear They rod, rape her every year Take every calf, take all her milk Until she's dead This choice you say is your right That you can eat just as you like And it's merely an opinion that I voice But your choice, it kills so many This opinion kills not any And your victims, you give them any choice? So there's more to avocados And eating tofu burgers Than minimizing sickness and your girth No less than Einstein did resolve From eating flesh we must evolve Or mankind, he said, may not survive on earth The age in which we are living is ever more misgiving over what is done to those who cannot talk Are you blind to all their pain Can you not feel the shame In that broken piece of body on your fork? @theveganleo standup911

Fire, Food, and Fresh: ORGANIC O RGANICOUMA WHAT A 'STOMACH CRACK MEANS ACCORDING TO CHINESE MEDICINE The tongue is the window to the soul… or is it the eyes?! No matter how the saying goes, in Traditional Chinese Medicine aka TCM, your tongue can tell you a LOT about what’s going on inside of your body. I’ll never forget the time my friend was suffering from headaches, nausea & feeling faint for 2 days straight. When I looked at her tongue, it was a deep reddish purple, indicating some serious “liver heat” & “blood stasis.” I immediately made her mung bean broth (which clears heat and toxicity from the body) and had her eat light, cooling foods like celery and watermelon the rest of the week. The tongue pattern we’re looking at today deals with a “stomach crack” down the middle rather than an abnormal color. In TCM, this means 2 things: “stomach yin deficiency” (which I’ll explain) and CHRONIC DEHYDRATION! A tongue with cracks is inadequately moistened and therefore, the whole body and GI tract is also dehydrated (think of the cracks in dessert sand when it hasn’t rained for ages!) The best way to reverse this dehydration is not plain water, but rather mineral-rich liquids such as celery, carrot, and cucumber juice that the body can readily assimilate. Warm soup made with greens, seaweed and root veggies is excellent too. In TCM, warm liquids will soften a hard-dehydrated stomach lining and intestines so that they can start absorbing nutrients and fluids again. Now onto "stomach yin deficiency”: Digestion in TCM is viewed metaphorically as a pot of soup sitting on a fire. Stomach YIN is the pot that holds the food and extracts the nourishment; stomach YANG is the fire that ‘cooks’ the food and fuels metabolism. Stomach yin is nourished when we make the job of extracting nutrients easy. But stomach yin DEFICIENCY develops when we have irregular eating habits, skip meals, eat late at night, eat in a hurry, eat while working or standing up, etc. To work on this “stomach crack” and heal stomach yin deficiency: Eat fresh foods that are LIGHTLY cooked or soups that are SLOW cooked - too much heat too fast (frying, roasting) will eventually deplete the stomach’s yin reserves. blackhealthmatters VIA: @organic_olivia
