After years of exposés about the horrors of factory farming, many people want to believe that, as long as they buy "local", "organic", "family farmed", "free-range" animal products, they are making a "humane" choice. These days, we hear all too often, "Well, not all farms are like that", or, "I only buy eggs, milk, or meat from my local farmer where the animals are #happy and well cared for".
NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE #TRUTH.
In #reality, no matter how "humane" the farm may appear through human eyes, it remains a death camp for the #animals who are bought, sold, kept, bred, used, and violently killed there. Those of us who rescue, provide #sanctuary to, and advocate for the animals who are freed from the very farms that the public wants to believe are "humane", know first hand how destructive the " #humane" farming #deception, and self-deception, can be.
PLEASE understand that the cruelties and injustices discussed in animal agriculture are inherent in ALL egg, #dairy and flesh production.
From backyard operations, to factory farms: • All male chicks are killed in the course of egg production, whether at the hatchery or on the farm, because they do not lay eggs. • All females used for #eggs, #milk, or breeding are killed at a fraction of their natural lifespan when their "productivity" declines. • All females used for eggs, milk or breeding have their reproductive systems violated, manipulated and exploited. • All animals exploited for eggs, milk or flesh have been genetically manipulated to increase their "productivity". • All animals raised for flesh are barely adolescent when they are violently killed. • All animals used for human purposes are denied a #natural#life.
No matter how friendly the farmer is, or how bucolic the farm may appear, to the animals whose lives are manipulated and destroyed there, there is no such thing as "humane" farming._____
THERE IS ONLY ONE

One of my favorite breakfast combos. I used to throw the sweet potatoes in the omelette, but for the past year or so I try to eat my carbs after cooking then cooling them, which has several benefits (comment for details).
Since no omelette is complete without cheese, I wanted to share notes. Some people are reluctant to add cheese to their diet because lactose intolerance, it makes them feel bloated, makes them break out, etc., but not all cheeses are created equal. I try to incorporate fermented cheeses into my diet frequently.
🔹Fermentation of dairy has many benefits:
*Increase in vitamins B & C.
*Helps to break down casein, a milk protein many people can’t digest.
*Restores many of the enzymes destroyed during pasteurization including lactase, which helps digest lactose (milk sugar), & numerous enzymes that help the body absorb calcium & other minerals.
*Lactase produced during culturing process allows many people who are sensitive to fresh milk to tolerate fermented products, such as cream cheese, yogurt, kefir, whey, & cultured milk, cream, & cheese.
🔹Full fat or fat-free? - I always go full fat
*Low fat options usually sub in artificial ingredients & sweeteners to maintain texture of real cheese
*Full fat cheeses contain fatty acid CLA (benefits = anti-cancer, fat loss, anti-diabetic, & anti-hypertensive).
🔹Try to go organic
*Toxins store in animal fat
*Organic dairy has up to 62% more omega-3 fatty acids.
🔹I choose fermented Mozzarella cheese because:
*Provides probiotics & the benefits mentioned above.
*1 oz = ~80 kcal, 6g Protein, 6g fat, Vitamin B12 & A, Calcium, Phosphorus, Zinc, Selenium, & Iron.
So if you’ve been avoiding cheeses for any reasons above, try the whole fat, fermented, organic types & see if you feel a difference.

HAPPY TUESDAY BABES! Hope your week has been off to a faaaantastic start 💃🏼 Tried out another mason jar meal for lunches this week, and I luuuuuuv it. It’s a southwestern beef and rice salad 🥗
From the bottom layer up:
* Greek yogurt sauce (5 oz container plain Greek yogurt with minced garlic, cumin, paprika, salt, pepper, lime juice, and water)
* Red onions * White rice (2 cups)
* Corn (1 can)
* Black beans (1 can)
* Tomatoes (2 medium)
* Lean ground beef (1 lb cooked with taco seasoning and garlic salt)
* Shredded Mexican cheese
* Baby spinach (entire package chopped up)
Honestly, I really didn’t measure much out for this and just split everything evenly between the four jars 🤷🏼♀️ for the sauce, I just mixed different amounts of the ingredients until I liked the taste! This is a quick meal to put together for the week, and you can save even more time using rotisserie chicken (which the grocery store was out of for me lol). OKAY ENOUGH OF ME TALKING, like it, save it, try it out and enjoy the goodness 🤙🏼🥙🦎 #DairyGirlFitness
No one wants to see and read these posts. Certainly not me, but for as long as people pay for this to happen it will not end. Just days old, still learning to walk, please read this baby’s story 🙏❤️ #Repost@dominionmovement with @get_repost
He was killed at a small, country, local, Adelaide Hills slaughterhouse.
There was just six calves in the pen that day- three black and white Friesians and three tiny, frail brown Jerseys. As Friesian and Jersey are dairy breeds of cattle, these baby boys are considered useless given their inability to produce milk and thus are sent here to be killed.
This one barely a few days old, likely to have never been with his mother long enough to even have a single feed in his life, was so weak he could hardly stand. When it was time for him to be killed the worker pushed and carried him by his tail through the pathway the led to the knock box. His feet slipped- still learning how to walk and stand.
When he reached the knock box he tried to back away having seen the two other calves with him go in and not come out, but the worker pushes harder on his back until he is forced in to his death.

Looks like paradise, doesn’t it? So calm and peaceful. Still it wasn’t. Hundreds of death trucks passed by me. At 8pm in the evening, just when the sun started to set. The trucks came with souls, still alive. Pigs, cows, chicken. Babies on their way to be cut into pieces. Imagine them seeing this beautiful sunset like I do right before darkness hid the bitter truth; this was the first and last day they would ever see and smell the brisk air. And I would still be here. Choosing to live another day. A choice they never had. #paradise#meat#dairy#eggs#compassion#animals#liberation#freedom
