Here is my fur child, I have decided to make Tuesday’s #TolkienTuesdays because he is my special man. Yes, he is named after the author because I loved his writing. . . . . . #tolkientheadventurer #furchild #newpostdedication #dogsofinstagram #freedom_preservationofthewild
I'mmmmm baaacckk!!! Guess what that means?! More fun recipes. Yes, I know my last food post was about salads, but it only seems fitting that my first post of the year, be about salads. We are all eating better for different reasons: to lose weight, to just eat healthy, for blood pressure, heartburn and any other reason.
I have had to continue to inspire myself and come up with more innovative ways to eat plant based. IT is not easy. I am going on 3 solid months of no meat consumption. I must say, how proud I am of my self.
Check out my lunch I made at work today. Yes, I made this whole salad. with all the components. 
Anything can be an amazing in salads, you just have to get creative! I made this all at work. I took a whole avocado and cut it, strawberries, cut cucumbers, carrots, walnuts, dried cranberries, avocado, and spinach. It seems so simple, but this is so delicious.
What do you put on your salads? Tell me in the comments! I'd love to here you absolute favorite!! . . . . . . . #meatlessmondaychronicles #meatlessmonday #onesmallstep #nomeaty #vegetarian #vegan #plantbased #freedom_preservationofthewild
I’m a day late, but yesterday, March 3rd was World Wildlife Day. The United Nations decides to proclaim March 3rd, which is also the day of the convention on International Trade in Endangered Species or Wild Fauna and Flora. The purpose of World Wildlife Day is to raise awareness of the words beautiful species both plant and animal life. All life is prescious. Our world relies on intricate ecosystem that support each other’s existence. It is the ever changing nature and balance between these ecosystems that we see life and purity. Keeping the “wild” protected is safer for the animals, but also for humans. Remove humans from the wilderness and most forms of life will thrive. This years theme is “Life below water: for people and planet” . . . . . . #worldwildlifeday #worldwildlifeday #lifebelowwater #protectouroceans #savetheplanet #environmental #evironmentalblogger #blogger #newblogpost #unitednations

Powerful. Their lives are not more important than our own. We share this planet. We have babies, just the same. They only want to live and watch their families exist. . . Animals do not understand why humans make their choices. Why humans cause their destruction. Why humans enjoy torturing them. Why humans must expand and continue to take everything. No more wildlife, no more natural lands, no more “never been touched by humans” lands. Just a world where humans seek control. To continue to destroy and cause destruction. . . Animals deserve better caretakers and stewards of the earth. They deserve better. . . . . . . . #freedom_preservationofthewild #protectourplanet #animalsdeservebetter #wedonotownanimals #thearthiseveryone #earthbelongstoallofus #sentientbeings #endpoaching #endhunting #endbrutality #humansthefuckedupspecies

Today, June 5th, 2018, is World Environment Day. Yes, everyday has it’s own national or global purpose now. However, one like World Environment Day, should be celebrated everyday. I know, it sounds cliche.

But, it is true.

The environment brings forth life to all organisms creating plant and animal matter. We as humans, have destroyed much of the planet through our quest for profit.

Biggest Threat: Plastic!

Plastic pollution is currently the most disastrous product that was ever invented. Take a moment and look at your surroundings. How many items are made of some form of plastic? Uncanny, it’s a vast majority of items. I, myself, this laptop I am typing on, my lap desk for the couch, my wireless mouse, my cell phone, my FitBit, my clipboard, the pens and pencils, the television, the printer and so much more.

We have become infatuated with single use and disposable and durability. However, some durability has no other function or purpose. One it has served it’s purpose it is discarded. Ends up on the ground, oceans, and forests. Even the lowest point of the ocean, the Mariana Trench. This is located in the Pacific Ocean more than 36,000 feet, which is technically if “higher or deeper” than Mount Everest (at 29,026 feet).

That is insane!! we have literally found a way to pollute every part of the planet. The problem with plastic: there is no “shelf-life”. They live inevitable. There are no natural micro-organism to break down plastic. It may break into smaller pieces, but those pieces never go away. They continue to accumulate on land and in salt and fresh water bodies.

Many sea-life creature have been found dead with an accumulation of plastic found in their bodies. Animals unintentionally consume plastic and suffer dire consequences. Plastic is used for primarily every product. From food containers, microwaving products, food ware, school and office supplies, shoe wear, electronics, automotives, clothing, edible, non-edible. PLASTIC IS EVERYWHERE!

Conundrum: How do you avoid it? How do you prevent it from becoming more pollution?

  • Stop your consumption of plastic products:
    • Fast-Food Dilemma 
      • You do not need plastic silverware for lunch, dinner, fast food etc. First, fast food is not good for your health so, you should omit it. Also, fast food enterprises are primarily guilty for creating the supply and demand for “single-use” products. Everything you purchase for $5-$10 you will only use once, not recycle it and disperse of it.
      • Solution for fast paced life: MEAL PREP. Yes, it is time-consuming to an extent, but you are in control. All my meals are made fresh, no preservatives and no plastic use. I use glass container to carry my lunch and meals. I take my own silverware so there is no need to purchase plastic silverware, which you cannot recycle because of the food contaminants. It real is something, that small and simple to induce a change.
    • Buy items only sold in recyclable packaging.
      • Meaning no more plastic bags, containers, peanut butters, etc.
      • Solutions: purchase jars to keep products fresh. Go to stores that sell items not in plastic packaging, but wholesomely so that you may refill your from home jars.
    • Gardening!
      • One of the simplest things you can do is start your own garden. This will limit the amount of items you buy in stores that come in pre-packaged plastic bags or containers.
      • You can reuse old items and convert them into flower planters or use glass jars to start a garden.
    • Carry your own bag!
      • Many states have implemented an additional charge on plastic bags to limit the use and sale of them. Customers bring their own reusable bag to carry items home from any type of purchase. Thus, decreasing the use and demand for single use.
      • Plastic bags are not biodegradable and harm so much of wildlife. Animals get stuck or caught in bags. Ocean animals consume bags mistaking them for other sea creatures.
    • Convert your products.
      • Every item you have in your home, most likely has a eco-friendly or bio-degradable version. Please consider switching to that alternative. Toothbrushes are plastic, use a bamboo toothbrush instead! Most office supplies can be made with recycled materials. Home filtered water is the best alternative to single use plastic water bottles.
    • Save MONEY!
      • Huh, how does not buying plastic save me money? You pay for the cost of being lazy. That is right, I said it. You are LAZY. Humans are lazy. The single-use catasrophy has made humans lazy and dirty. We purchase one-time items and literally throw them away. We no longer take the effort to make meals, learn to cook, learn to garden, learn to make and create things. The average human is not that creative, because they no longer have to use their brains to form something to be useful. We literally rely on pre-made products to “function”.
        • When you purchase single use items, you get less of the actual product you are purchasing. For example, cookies. the quantity is less, but you are paying for more plastic or aluminum packaging. You then discard that packaging because it cannot be reused. Purchasing non-individually wrapped items that you have to portion, you pay significantly less, but you also reduce waste. Saying no to plastic will not only save the world, but it was help make you affluent.

Did you know it takes more water to create and produce plastic than there is on the planet to consume? Think about that. Water sources are depleting all around the world and they are being used for plastic production.

Take a moment today and analyze your home. See what products are plastic that you can do without or will no longer need to re-purchase. You will be surprised how much less you will have to throw away and how much money you may actually save.

Join the revolution against plastic! Say NO to plastic. No more plastic pollution.
