Break Out Of The Mold

It takes courage to face reality. To see things as they truly are. To be awake and not asleep. It even takes courage to escape. You may ask, “escape from what? To what?” If only people could see more clearly, to think differently than what they were taught as children. To unlearn and have courage to break out of the mold. Parents in general are well meaning, but let’s follow what is right. Don’t follow just to follow.

Would children truly want to eat the inside of an animal if they never had started? And even if they tasted it but once, would they then start killing animals for the taste of them? Would it not be unlike them? There is something more to the packages of meat people buy in the grocery stores. There was the death of a cow, a pig, a chicken, a turkey and others in ABUNDANCE. Animals who could have had a happy life otherwise.

I grew up eating meat until the Summer of 2000. Now I see a hot dog or packaged meat for what it truly IS and WAS. It is now the inside of a dead animal that was once a living being who desired love and care from us. If people could start over, would they have the desire to eat the inside of animals? Or would it seem horrid?

Being an animal lover should go beyond just our pets. Who says a pet HAS to be a dog or cat or horse? If we love animals we need to realize that pets have always been…..animals.

Save them, don’t eat them. Be their hero. You do have a choice. I hope we all choose kindness over killing.

Apricot & Coconut Bliss Balls

Three months have passed since my last post and although I’m not posting today about animal welfare or rights, I felt it was time to make my presence known again.

The reason for such a long delay are several. Without going into details: our daughter moved out of our home and to another state, I had a health concern, holiday planning, painting several interior rooms, and the sad passing of my Grandmother who was two months shy of turning 102! So here I sit at the computer thinking and happy to hopefully have some rest time.

A friend of mine who lives in Vienna Austria sent me magazines and sweets that I received yesterday and today. I know some German so the magazines help me to learn more. Among the sweets are my favorite apricot chocolates called Sissi Taler. They are WONDERFULLY delicious!

As I enjoyed the apricot splendor, I began searching for apricot truffle recipes that I could make at home. I found this recipe that looks amazing and look forward to trying. You can find the recipe at this link: Apricot & Coconut Bliss Balls

I hope that 2017 brings you many wonderful and happy surprises. I look forward to doing what I can in the coming year to help the precious factory farm animals. They want to live just as much as any animal and I hope to make a difference.

May 2017 open eyes to kindness in our world. Kind Food, Kind You…
