ANIMAL AGRICULTURE 👉🏽 KILLING THE CLIMATE & THE PLANET
Livestock and their byproducts account for at least 32,000 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year, or 51% of all worldwide greenhouse gas emissions.
Agriculture is responsible for 80-90% of US water consumption. Throughout the world, humans dritnk 5.2 billion gallons of water and eat 21 billion pounds of food each day. Worldwide, cows drink 45 billion gallons of water and eat 135 billion pounds of food each day. Hence the cows consume 6-9 times more than humans. Also, did you know that 2,500 gallons of water are needed to produce 1 pound of beef.
Animal agriculture is responsible for up to 91% of Amazon destruction and 1-2 acres of rainforest are cleared every second. The leading causes of rainforest destruction are livestock and feedcrops. Animal agriculture is also the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution, and habitat destruction. Livestock operations on land have created more than 500 nitrogen flooded deadzones around the world in our oceans. For you to understand how inefficient animal agriculture is 1.5 acres can produce 37,000 pounds of plant-based food, 1.5 acres can produce 375 pounds of beef....
70 billion farmed animals are reared annually worldwide. No wonder we need to kill the rainforest grow crops fertilize and destroy our soil and oceans. More than 6 million animals are killed for food every hour.
A person who follows a vegan diet produces the equivalent of 50% less carbon dioxide, uses 1/11th oil, 1/13th water, and 1/18th land compared to a meat-lover for their food.
Obsessed with chia pudding at the moment 😍 this is a chocolate chia pudding recipe I got from @valeria.rey ‘s YouTube video! Basically 1/4 cup chia seeds, 1 cup plant milk, 1 tbsp syrup, 1 tbsp cacao powder and a dash of vanilla extract. Mix & refrigerate overnight & I topped with coconut chips, yummy!!
Today is day 7/28 medical medium cleanse. Yesterday was a challenge to maintain raw as I was in the hospital a good part of the day. I did pack dates and my left over grapefruit juice that I made Friday. When I got home it was late so I finished the grapefruit juice which was about 16 ounces, had a banana and a 32 ounce jar of fresh aloe water. Then I had a handful of prunes. I definitely think a key to success in unexpected situations is to have fruit you can easily eat like bananas, apples etc, dried fruit and things like dates are very helpful. I don’t tend to do raw nuts as they are really high in fat. It got me through the day. I also make up my citrus juices in big batches as they last 3 to 4 days in the fridge for us both to drink. I’ve switched to smart water for the time being as the water I was using I learned from another person on IG that it has fluoride in it (Zephyrhills). After researching it I was disappointed to find out that was true. So I am looking into Whole Foods alkaline water and got smart water as a quick substitute as it doesn’t have fluoride. .
Today my symptoms of detox are that I am still having minor headaches. I have sinus congestion with mucus draining. My sinuses feel a little plugged today. I also have a weird spot that showed up on my belly. About 3 inches by 3 inches. At first I thought it was a bruise but it’s not. Then I thought a rash but it’s not. I’ve had it about three days. It’s red and seems to be fading. It doesn’t hurt. I’m not sure what it is. I also have eczema spots on my shoulders and arms, little red spots of dry skin. I’m sleeping better, more deeply but still waking to drink, go to the bathroom and have a couple hot flashes at night. The hot flashes are better though for sure. I also forgot to mention yesterday something I thought was hilarious - I woke up singing “the witch is dead the wicked witch is dead”. From wizard of oz. totally random but it made me laugh as it was so out of the blue! I’m off to make juices and smoothies for my day to pack while I’m at the hospital with my dad. Take care of yourself cuz no one else can!!
