Meet Norman, a very lucky Jersey Calf who was Rescued by the Harmony Farm Sanctuary in Sisters, Oregon.

Meet Norman, a very lucky Jersey Calf who was Rescued by the Harmony Farm Sanctuary in Sisters, Oregon.

Norman is sweet little jersey cow. Like billions of baby cows each year, Norman was taken from his mother the day he was born so that her breast milk, the milk that was meant for him, could be sold for profit. At just 2 days old the Harmony Farm Sanctuary in Sisters, Oregon purchased him at an auction for $30. He was a “throw away”. Female babies have a better chance at survival because they might be used for dairy but males are sold at auctions, turned into dog food, or become veal. Most of them never even get their own mothers milk, even at birth. We assume that this happen to Norman which is why he was so sick when they rescued him.

Vegan Fast Food: My all Time Favorite Mango Salad

Vegan Fast Food: My all Time Favorite Mango Salad

This is a Thai inspired salad. I tried something similar at a restaurant in Portland a few times before they closed down. After that, I decided to try and make it myself. It's actually better than the original. This mango salad is so simple that I'm putting it in my vegan fast food category. It's about great produce and especially great mangos. If you can't get great produce, don't bother making it. Wait it out.

Getting Started with a Plant Based Diet.

Getting Started with a Plant Based Diet.

You can heal your body with plants. You do not have to become a victim of the American diet, animal agriculture, pharmaceuticals, and poor health. My mother had her first triple bypass surgery at the age of 39, more surgeries followed than I can count, and died at the age of 63. I am 47, surgery free, drug free, and healthy. I saved myself with plants and you can too.
