Celebrating Thanksgiving Day, Part 1 of 2 – Herbed Vegan Cheese and Vegan Bacon Breadsticks

In any celebration, food is one of the main features, and one can look forward to the wide variety of Thanksgiving favorites during this time of year. Breadsticks are one popular treat enjoyed during such occasions. Today, we will show you how to make veganised breadsticks filled with vegan cheese and vegan bacon. Firstly, we are going to bloom our yeast in a warm vegan buttermilk mixture. Add 52 grams of unsalted vegan butter into a pot and turn on the stove at low heat. When the vegan butter has melted, add 40 grams of sugar and 205 milliliters of high-fat soymilk. Keep stirring the mixture. When the yeast has activated, it releases carbon dioxide that causes the dough to rise. Now, our yeast has foamed, and it is time to add the vegan butter and soymilk mixture to the flour. Add a little at a time until the liquid is absorbed by the flour. Now, we can knead the dough by hand. While kneading, ensure there is no dry flour left in the mixing bowl. At this point, it is not necessary to have a completely smooth dough. Cover it and let it rest for about an hour in a warm place until it doubles in size. Dust some flour on the kneading board to prevent the dough from sticking. Knead the dough until smooth, form it into an elongated sausage-like shape. Then flatten the dough and roll it into a rectangular shape with a rolling pin. We will cut the rectangular dough into eight pieces starting from the middle. First, sprinkle your favorite mixed dried herbs. We use rosemary, basil, thyme, parsley, and ground black pepper. Then add a generous amount of your favorite shredded vegan cheese and shredded vegan bacon. Wrap the filling by pinching the two edges of the dough together and sealing the ends. Gently roll the wrapped breadsticks to smoothen the surface. Cover the wrapped breadsticks with a damp towel and let them rest until they have doubled in size. It takes about 30 to 45 minutes.Transfer them onto a baking tray lined with a silicone baking mat to prevent sticking. Alternatively, you can use parchment paper to line your baking tray or brush on some vegetable oil. We scoop about four tablespoons of the vegan glaze we just made into another bowl and add some of the dried herb mixture, which is the same as what we have wrapped in the breadsticks. Mix well, then brush the glaze on the top of the breadsticks. Let’s get these beauties in the oven, which has been pre-heated to 180 degrees Celsius for 20 to 25 minutes. You would want to keep an eye on them as they cook through and turn golden brown.

"Vegan Batgirl" Connie Spence, Part 4 of 4: Agriculture Fairness Alliance

Agriculture Fairness Alliance is the legislation arm of Connie’s activism, and these three outstanding women activists, Laura Reese, Renee King-Sonnen, and Connie Spence, work together to make US agriculture laws and policies fairer. “I founded Vegan Justice League a year ago (2018). My co-founder actually was doing something very similar. Laura Reese worked with a group called Lobbyists 4 Good, which essentially teaches the public how to lobby and get involved. Renee, from Rowdy Girl Sanctuary was a rancher's wife who transitioned her farm, the cattle farm, into a sanctuary. When that happened, she started receiving inquiries from a lot of farmers who wanted to do the same thing. They needed help to get out of livestock farming and help to transition. We caught wind of it. Why not create legislation instead of throwing them bailout money?” “So currently we’re lobbying for something called the at-risk farmer legislation which will help animal farmers transition to plant-based farming or green energy production.” It is not only a value-driven federal food procurement of healthy food, but also supports USDA Climate Smart Agriculture Policy. It has been warmly embraced by many farmers and vegans, including Jane Velez-Mitchell from Jane UnChained News. “The success is that the conversations that we've had just in the last couple months, have proven that it's very likely that our legislation will get inserted into a broader environmental piece of legislation.” “We hope to grow as more members come in. So, you can become a member of agriculturefairnessalliance.org. So, becoming a member, helping us continue to educate. If you're in a socioeconomic condition that you can't donate, networking and sharing stuff is super important. So, on the local and state level, you can get involved and speak the same way you speak to people in activism, getting laws changed.” Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Gratefully present the Shining World Compassion Award to Liberation 360, plus US $10,000 as a humble token of helping your work, with all love and high salute for your crucial endeavors. May you and all your fellow activists enjoy continued success and constant protection by Heaven.”

Plant-Based Treaty Initiative - the Climate Save Movement, Part 2 of 2

Today we are honored to continue our interview with Anita and Nicola who will share their goals and objectives for this powerful new initiative; The Plant Based Treaty. “We've set ourselves goals of 10 million individual endorsers, 10,000 businesses and organizations and 50 cities by 2023, which is when the Global Stocktake of the Paris Agreement happens. The signatures we collect are basically there to show the support for Plant Based Treaty and show the momentum building. We are trying to create this bottom-up pressure to show that individuals, groups, businesses, are all coming together to call for world leaders to implement this global agreement about a transition to a plant-based economy.”“If we don't act soon, then our window of opportunity is smaller. And think of a societal breakdown, as temperature gets hotter, more people will get sick and die of heat stroke. There will be challenges to the energy system as temperatures go up, Energy systems have trouble operating in higher temperatures. There's the fear of a food system breakdown. Food systems become vulnerable when the temperature is 30 degrees Celsius or higher. You see rivers drying up. There's water shortages. We're going to see increased numbers of climate refugees. The Plant Based Treaty is a way to address this, this decade. I can't overstate the urgency. One way to address climate anxiety is to work on solutions like the Plant Based Treaty. We really need millions of people to come together and to force national governments to address the real issues at the global level.” In conclusion, Anita emphasizes that a key way people can help is by endorsing the Plant Based Treaty. Their website is designed to allow endorsement at four levels - Individuals, Groups, Businesses, and Cities. The website also offers a host of resources that one can make use of to spread the urgent message and garner more support. “Let's organise a massive global grassroots pressure campaign and get the world to switch to plant-based this decade, preferably in the next few years to avert a climate catastrophe.”To find out more about the Plant-Based Treaty Initiative, please visit: plantbasedtreaty.org

"Vegan Batgirl" Connie Spence, Part 3 of 4: Vegan Justice League Liberation 360

After finding about the size and power of the meat and dairy industries in the US, and learning that not one single animal is saved despite the growing number of vegans and demand for plant-based food, Connie felt the need to urgently amend the broken US food policies which lead to lopsided subsidies in favor of the animal industries. “So I founded Vegan Justice League.” Laura Reese, the co-founder of Vegan Justice League, gave up her eighteen-year career in the semiconductor industry and started lobbying Congress, on behalf of farm animals, in 2018. Looking into the systems, policies, and laws which needed to be changed to fix the system, Connie Spence and Laura Reese realized that the changes would cover equity among farmers, equity among food consumers, fairer subsidies, and environmental protection, including multiple issues related to social justice. They decided to change the name, Vegan Justice League, to Liberation 360, to reflect the extensive changes that will affect farmers, consumers, animals, and almost every aspect of our lives. Connie also told us about the bailouts. “Bailouts are basically a large amount that is supposed to be a direct payment that steps in to pay for their losses.” Before the COVID-19 pandemic, there was a huge stockpile due to overproduction. During the pandemic, we saw milk dumping and animals being euthanized so that the farm could produce “loss.” In the U.S., subsidies to the agriculture sector typically run around $20 billion per year. In 2020, bailouts rocketed that number to over $50 billion. “With the pandemic and all the shutdowns, and all of the bailouts that they saw, our bailouts - our money bailing them out, made 2021 of the most profitable years for livestock.” “I define success on how many animals are saved. Going vegan is the first step. It is not enough to achieve animal liberation. To achieve animal liberation, we have to get political.” “Our organization, Agriculture Fairness Alliance.org, and Liberation 360 are staunch with our anti-oppression themes. This is an abolition lobbying group. We are about animal liberation. We are anti-oppression, and advocate for human issues as well.”

Plant-Based Treaty Initiative - the Climate Save Movement, Part 1 of 2

Plant-Based Treaty Initiative - the Climate Save Movement, Part 1 of 2

Dr. Anita Krajnc is a Toronto-based animal rights activist with a Master’s degree in political science and environmental studies, plus a PhD in politics. She co-founded Toronto Pig Save in 2010 and helped grow it into a global network called Animal Save Movement. In 2020, Dr Krajnc received the Shining World Compassion Award from the honorable Supreme Master Ching Hai for her noble endeavors to save animal lives, together with a loving gift of 15,000 US dollars towards her noble organizations. Dr. Krajnc believes that to solve the climate crisis there are two incredibly urgent tasks which need our utmost attention; firstly, to end livestock raising, and secondly, to reforest the Earth. To tackle this vital task Dr. Krajnc coordinated and created the Plant Based Treaty (PBT) initiative, kicking off the campaign on 31 August, 2021.The three core principles of the Plant Based Treaty are: Relinquish, Redirect, and Restore. “Principle one is Relinquish. No new deforestation for expanded livestock raising industry. Principle two is shift from livestock-raising to plant-based food to solve the problem. The third principle is Reforest the Earth, because that would not only reduce emissions, but you could actually absorb emissions, absorb carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.”“Around 80% our land is now used by livestock raising, whether that's farms, slaughterhouses or to grow animal feed. So we have to halt the expansion and then reverse this figure because it's alarming, and we cannot continue to keep going in that direction because we won't have a planet left.”Anita points out another crucial action is for governments to stop subsidizing livestock-raising operations. This has created a false impression of economic profitability in the livestock-raising sector, and contributes directly to the global climate crisis. We certainly do need governmental support to help farmers build sustainable plant-based agriculture. Anita goes on to say that having a “meat tax” can push the drive toward plant-based agriculture.

"Vegan Batgirl" Connie Spence, Part 2 of 4: The Giant Spotlight

"Vegan Batgirl" Connie Spence, Part 2 of 4: The Giant Spotlight

In today’s program, Connie walks us through the history of the food system and politics in the US – more specifically, how the system is “rigged” to undermine the law of supply and demand in favor of the livestock industry.“I started checking the USDA numbers to see how many animals we saved, because some of my messages with the Batman Light would say, each person can save 100 to 200 animals a year by not eating them.”To her surprise, Connie found out that the livestock raising business had continued to expand, all the while raising and killing more animals. “And what I found out is basically that the production keeps increasing, and I'm like, this can't be the case every year. I started looking at losses, and there are a lot of years with reported losses, a lot of losses in money on headlines. But then, sequentially, you'll find a headline talking about the bailout.”“But the sad truth is that our tax dollars bailing them out, is in direct competition with your consumer dollars. Yeah, this is a great segue to where this activism changed course. And I realized that I can't just focus on consumer behavior. Because the Farm Bill is a great example of a bill that undermines our veganism because it helps and supports, so drastically with our taxes, the agriculture system – not the agriculture system – specifically, livestock and dairy. We must change the way our taxes are being used. It's thievery in my opinion. I am so consciously making sure that my shoes aren't leather, my purses aren't leather, that nothing on me or in my house exploits an animal. But then your taxes are taken out, 20 to 40% of them every year and it's going to do the opposite of what your intention was, and all those animals you thought you were saving… they're just saying: ‘Hey, we have your taxes.’ We have to create a channel of communication to politicians; we have to make our demands; and we have to hold them accountable. We can't do that by holding a sign outside. Activism augments our lobbying demands.”

Food Empowerment Project: The Power in Food Choices – with 'lauren' Ornelas (vegan), Part 3 of 3

Food Empowerment Project: The Power in Food Choices – with 'lauren' Ornelas (vegan), Part 3 of 3

lauren says that there is a commonality to all the social justice issues of our world, which is the disconnect between our innate compassionate nature and our actions. When lauren founded FEP in 2007, one human rights issue she tackled immediately was child slavery. Currently, there are more than 150 million child slave workers in the world, according to the UN agency International Labor Organization. FEP zeroes in on West Africa, where there are more than two million children that are enslaved in cocoa plantations. In 2011, to help shoppers differentiate between ethically sourced chocolate products and those that are not, lauren and her team at FEP launched a free “Chocolate List,” based on where the companies source their cocoa from. It has been well-documented around the world that environmental and health hazards often impact poor communities and communities of color disproportionately. lauren also speaks out against the multibillion-dollar biotech company Monsanto, which has a history of toxic waste dumping that pollutes the air and water of low-income areas. She also points out that the genetically modified crops engineered by companies like Monsanto require more agricultural chemicals, leading to more pesticide and herbicide exposure for farmworkers – who are largely people of color. “So, in North Carolina, which is the top pig killing state, you have black and brown, and indigenous communities there who are suffering from the horrific smell of the pig farms. In California, we have in the Central Valley here, we have some of the largest dairy farms in the country where you have the Latino community here suffering from some of the highest rates of asthma because of the dairy industry. So you have animal agriculture polluting black and brown and indigenous communities.” lauren’s solution for this insidious form of environmental racism is for the world to stop consuming meat and dairy products. Our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken extensively about the benefits of veganism for decades. She has emphasized that our climate crisis is extremely dire and only the compassionate plant-based diet will save our precious planet. “Not just immediately, but for the long, long run, and we can keep this planet forever and make it into a paradise by just throwing that meat away and stop the animal industry.”

"Vegan Batgirl" Connie Spence, Part 1 of 4: The Giant Spotlight

In today's program, we will introduce you Connie Spence, an eleven-year vegan, who pushes the envelope to drive more conversations and eyeballs toward veganism. Noticing the constraints that exist in many activism events, requiring the presence of a large number of activists to create an impact, Connie Spence devised a unique way to reach multitudes of people, by spotlighting outsized vegan messages on building walls. “I was one of those meat eaters that knew a few vegetarians, were annoyed by them, and said, and I quote, kill me if I ever turned vegetarian. And I, like a year later, turned vegetarian. So, you can’t really lose hope. Never lose hope on people that kind of have that strict stance about their meat-eating because you just never know.” “I knew nothing about activism. And so anyways, all of a sudden, I would say in 2014, I started seeing people sharing activism events on Facebook, and I started getting involved with that.” After reading an article about a guy using light to show a printed message on a wall, Connie was thrilled about this idea and wanted to find out about the source he used. “As an advertiser, I wanted to get as many eyeballs as possible on my message. Light isn't vandalism, which is fascinating to me. And so, I instantly started using that light with vegan messages.” Connie’s previous 15-year career in Advertising & Software Business Development helped her create the ‘Vegan Batman Light’ to project 70 X 70 ft messages of truth and compassion onto the sides of buildings in order to transform people’s attitudes. The purpose of these messages was to reach a larger audience and help people make the connection between their purchases and the harrowing torture of innocent animals. “A lot of people loved watching the interactions. I was veganizing a lot of people and a lot of eyeballs could see these messages. I went to Vegas with it and put it on Vegas hotels, pretty much anywhere that there was a blank wall, I would put it on.” Connie knew nothing about dealing with the police but had to interact with them at least 75 times. Her great knowledge of the law saved her from being shut down when she was using the light about 3 or 4 times a week.

Food Empowerment Project: The Power in Food Choices – with 'lauren' Ornelas (vegan), Part 2 of 3

“So, our main area is promoting veganism for the animals. So, as a very proud Chicanx, Mexican, we created vegan Mexican food, which is full of vegan Mexican recipes. And I wanted to create this site to celebrate and share with my family and with friends how delicious vegan food can be and we can still have a part of our culture there.” In 2018, lauren became the first woman of color to be inducted into the Animal Rights Hall of Fame at the Animal Rights National Conference in the USA. lauren is also well-recognized for her farmworker rights advocacy in the USA. In order to provide policymakers with qualitative data about the lack of access to healthy food, FEP conducts major community surveys in the neighborhoods that request them. Two surveys were recently carried out in Santa Clara County and Vallejo, California, in 2014 and 2018, respectively. FEP also follows its surveys up with focal groups, which are live discussions with members of the local communities. The data collected by FEP was presented to the policymakers, who used the data to help determine which local stores are going to get “healthy makeovers.” lauren says that this is largely due to the lopsided distribution of government subsidies, which currently favors foods that are less healthy. The US government directs more than $US 37 billion of taxpayers’ money a year towards meat, dairy, corn, soybeans, wheat, and rice, whereas only 0.4% of the total subsidy goes to fruits and vegetables, despite clear evidence and public consensus that fruits and vegetables are the most health enhancing foods. A major milestone in FEP’s 14-year history is its successful campaign against a California regulation known as the “50-mile rule.” By drafting online petitions, hosting protests, and seeking out audiences with state officials to repeal the regulation, FEP helped to bring about an end to the 50-mile rule in 2018.

Singapore Vegan Hawker Food, Part 2 of 2 – Vegan Prawn Noodle Soup & Nyonya Cendol Dessert

Today, we are pleased to have vegan chef Keng back, this time with her son James. They will share with us some interesting vegan hawker food recipes that are distinct to Sparkling Singapore. “The first dish that I’ll be cooking is the Singapore Vegan Prawn Noodles.” “(Today, we will show you how to make it without sacrificing any lives in the ocean and you will not lose any flavor either.)” “(Now we’ll boil all the ingredients together with two and a half liters of water, is that right?) Yes, James! We’ll boil the soup using high heat for five minutes, then lower the heat to simmer for another 20 minutes. Now, drain and retain the broth. Set aside.” “James, let’s cook the noodles in boiling water till the noodles start to float. Blanch the rest of the kang kong and bean sprouts for a while. (OK. We’ll drain and set aside. What do we do next?) Blanch the vegan meat and vegan prawns. Remove and add to the bowl. Add in some broth. (Wow, that looks fantastic!) Our Singapore Vegan Prawn Noodle is now completed.” “James, we’ll now be making the Nyonya Cendol Dessert together. (Hmmm, that’s our ever-popular traditional dessert! Perfect for the sweltering Southeast Asian temperatures and it is naturally vegan.) Yes, Cendol is an iced sweet dessert that contains droplets of green jelly, coconut milk, and coconut sugar syrup.” “Now, let’s prepare the Cendol which are green jelly-like strands as I’ve mentioned earlier. The ingredients we need are 10 whole pandan leaves, cut into one-inch-thick strips, 50 grams of sugar, 100 grams of mung bean flour, a pinch of salt, 650 milliliters of water. Let’s blend the pandan leaves with water.” “Scoop the Cendol into a strainer with large holes and slowly press the cooked Cendol directly into the iced water. (Oohh noodle-like strands! How interesting.) Now, let’s scoop the Cendol from the ice water. To serve our dessert, we have put ice at the bottom of the bowl, add cooked red beans, the Cendol we just made, coconut milk, and coconut syrup. (Our Nyonya Cendol Dessert is now ready to serve.)”

Food Empowerment Project: The Power in Food Choices – with 'lauren' Ornelas (vegan), Part 1 of 3

Today, it is our great honor to bring you the extraordinary Ms. lauren Ornelas, a veteran social justice advocate of 35 years in California, USA. Her nonprofit organization Food Empowerment Project (FEP), which she founded in 2007, has done monumental work to help some of the most underprivileged and downtrodden of society. “I initially went vegetarian when I was in elementary school, in the 70s, seeing the cows in the fields – I grew up in Texas – and immediately just kind of saw them as a family. And, I started just to realize that I didn't want to consume cows anymore because I didn't want to be a part of separating their families.” “I think it simply is that I loved animals. It's like nothing else, but just simply loving them. And that seems really maybe simplistic, but it's the truth. I just loved animals and I just couldn't imagine being responsible for hurting them.” In 1992, while attending St. Edward's University in Austin, Texas, Lauren founded the St. Edwards Animals Rights Society, an animal rights group which later became Action for Animals, an organization that is still active today. “I had gotten arrested a lot of times for the animals, and that spanned from things such as protesting fur and protesting the circus or protesting animals used in research. But I think the ones that really hit me the hardest are the investigations I've done for animals that are raised and killed for food.” “I went into one of the farms and investigated, and a lot of the turkeys were sick. They were shivering, they were so ill, but they were still so absolutely curious. They would still come up and peek at my camera and tap on it with their beaks, that even though they were ill and they were crowded and it was filthy, they still had that part of them, that was eternally curious about what was going on around them. And so it was heartbreaking, as all these investigations are, and at the same time, the beauty of the animals still was there.” Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyfully present the Shining World Compassion Award to lauren Ornelas, plus US $10,000 for the Food Empowerment Project as a humble token of support for your noble work empowering the underprivileged, with all love, respect, and gratitude. May you enjoy ever more success and may Heaven bless you abundantly always.”

Singapore Vegan Hawker Food, Part 1 of 2 – Teochew Mee Pok (Noodles) & Nyonya Pumpkin Kaya Toast

Singapore has been listed as Asia’s second most vegan-friendly city since 2016 by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Asia. Today, we are pleased to have vegan chef Keng and her daughter, Mei Zhu, on our show to share with us some delicious vegan Singaporean hawker food recipes.“Today, we’ll share two such vegan hawker recipes. The first dish that I’ll be cooking is the Singapore Teochew Mee Pok.” “To begin, let’s slice the mushrooms.” “Next, let’s make crispy soy protein with oil. Fry the soy protein using medium heat. Fry until it’s turning brown slightly, turn off the heat, and set aside.” “Now the oil is heated, we add the pre-soaked soy protein and stir-fry for about half a minute. When it has dried up a little, add chopped shiitake mushroom stalks and the sliced shiitake mushroom. Continue to stir-fry for about 10 minutes. Now the mixture is quite dry and very fragrant.” “Rock sugar, dark soya sauce, salt, vegan mushroom oyster sauce, and finally water. Bring it to a boil.” “Next, for each serving bowl, we’ll add half a tablespoon of chili sauce, half a tablespoon of soya sauce, one tablespoon of black vinegar, and one tablespoon of crispy soy protein with oil. Mix them all and set aside.” “(Now, mix well with the sauce we prepared.) Next, top the noodles with one tablespoon of cooked mushroom sauce, some vegan ocean balls, lettuce, and coriander leaves. (There we go.)” “Next, we’ll be making the (Vegan) Nyonya Pumpkin Kaya Toast.” “Kaya jam is a delicious Malaysian coconut jam which is typically made with egg, and tastes kind of like aromatic caramel. Today we will use pumpkin to make the kaya instead of egg.” “Firstly, we’ll preheat the oven at 180ºC. We’ll bake the whole pumpkin for one hour.” “Next, blend the pumpkin together with coconut cream and sugar till smooth.” “Next, add the pandan leaves and cook the pumpkin with a small fire till it starts to boil. Stir constantly to make it smooth and even. Then turn off the fire when it starts to boil.” “Now, let’s spread it on some toasted bread. (Yay, that is done and this looks so pretty and delicious!)”

Mauricio García-Pereira (vegetarian): From Slaughterhouse to Animal Liberation, Part 2 of 2

“It has been four years since I quit, and I still have nightmares. There are nights that I wake up, in the middle of the night, I still see hanging animals, the odors… I wake up, and I say to myself. Oh! Thank God, it was just a dream! Thank God, it was just a nightmare! Living it, I don't wish it on anyone!” Now engaged in a crusade against these practices, Mauricio promises that he will not stop his fight “as long as there is still a European law allowing these practices.” In May of this year, the animal protection association, L214, who regularly publishes "shock" videos to denounce the conditions in which animals are bred and slaughtered, asked the Minister of Agriculture for a new generalized audit of all slaughterhouses in France and called for the closure of all slaughterhouses. In a lecture given to our fellow association members, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai shared the truth about why our world is in such turmoil with so much suffering taking place in all corners of the globe, what the root cause is, and how we can turn it around and shape a better, brighter future for ourselves. “(Master, are the recent disasters around the world somehow connected with the billions of animals slaughtered every year for human consumption?) Of course, they are. ‘As you sow, so shall you reap,’ and ‘Like attracts like.’ Scientifically speaking, spiritually speaking, we have been warned. So, all the disasters that have happened around the world, of course, are connected with humans’ unkindness to their co-inhabitants. That’s the price we have to pay for what we have done to the innocents who have done us no harm, who are also the children of God, who have been sent to Earth to help us and to cheer our days. Now, the number one thing that is most important is non-violence. Non-violence to humans and animals. Of course, that means a vegan diet. That means completely abstain from all animal products.” “… My wish for 2021 and for the future, is no suffering or animal abuse, and no more deaths due to starvation in the world.”

Mauricio García-Pereira (vegetarian): From Slaughterhouse to Animal Liberation, Part 1 of 2

Mauricio is a brave Spanish whistleblower and author who emigrated to France 20 years ago and worked for 7 years at the Limoges slaughterhouse where he witnessed the abuse of animals, including the slaughter of pregnant cows. No longer able to bear it, he decided to contact the animal protection association L214, and agreed to smuggle a camera into the slaughterhouse and secretly film the atrocities going on inside it. Mauricio testified with his face uncovered. “When I first arrived here in Limoges, I sometimes bought Limousin meat, but I couldn't imagine all the suffering, all the pain, all this manipulation, all this horror. We are in the twenty-first century; we have to evolve, we have to move forward. We don’t need to eat meat. We don’t need to kill animals for food.” “As far as I'm concerned, I stopped eating meat. I am a vegetarian. We can go without meat. It's good for animals, it's good for the planet and therefore it's good for people.” After working at the slaughterhouse for seven years, he became totally disgusted by the brutal practices he saw taking place there. He soon realized that the suffering of animals needed to be exposed and stopped. “I could no longer bear it. I was at my wit's end, and I wanted to denounce their activities, the number of animals per day. Because it is not just a few cows, it's hundreds and hundreds of cows, lambs, pigs of all ages, all sizes, from small, from babies to old sows, and piglets, very tiny ones. There were lambs, sometimes even a few days old.” “I wanted to stop long before seven years. I waited... because I wanted to denounce the practices, and especially the slaughter of pregnant cows. How can someone still kill pregnant cows, every day? How can we kill small calves, mothers with small calves inside? Someone explain this to me. And I wanted to report it after four years, but I didn't know how. So, I waited until the day I discovered the L214 Association on TV. And thank you to the L214 Association. I called them, and I showed them some photos. Then I made videos for them.”

Afghan Vegan Samosa Kachaloo (Golden Potato Dumplings)

Afghan Vegan Samosa Kachaloo (Golden Potato Dumplings)

Whenever talking about samosa, most people would think that its origin is Indian. But some say it originated in the Middle East region since the first mention of samosa was found in a ninth-century Persian poem where it was referred to as “Sambosaj.” Nowadays, Samosas are a popular entrée, appetizer, or snack in many regions. They are fried or baked pastry with a variety of savory fillings in triangular, cone, or half-moon shapes, depending on the regions they are prepared in, and can also be made as a sweet dish. We will present an Afghan vegetarian (vegan) dish called potato dumplings. “Gentle viewers, now we add the oil, the flour, and the baking powder together with the yeast and salt. We mix the dough and knead it until it sticks together. Cherished viewers, while we leave the dough to rise, we’ll prepare the filling for the dumpling. We leave the potato until it is fried a little. Plant-based foods are very nutritious, especially coriander, potatoes... We have plenty of vegan food, and naturally, they are very delicious. Now we add the chopped coriander to the potato. We add the ginger, of course, we can use ginger powder as well. Coriander seeds, black pepper, and cumin. The potato should be cooled so that when we fill it in the dough it will be cool enough. OK, now we make the dough in the shape of small balls. For the dough to rise, we left it for 15 minutes, and we covered it with a clean plastic sheet so that our dough does not dry out. Now we are going to use a rolling pin to flatten the dough into a circle, very nice circle without anything sticking out. So now we are going to make the dumplings. We cut the circle in the middle. Now we are going to fold the semi-circle. And we fold the other edge of the semi-circle also and we press them together. They now stick together and form a funnel. We put one spoonful of the mixture that we made with the potato and seasonings into the funnel. So we are going to close the top of the funnel.” “Kind viewers, the dumplings are fried, and we have them on a plate that is already decorated with lettuce and green chili. You can eat these dumplings with a chutney that we made with two tomatoes, two green chilies, a little salt and coriander. Gentle viewers, these dumplings are very delicious. Very delicious!”

Eating Animals Causes Pandemics, Part 4 of 4

Eating Animals Causes Pandemics, Part 4 of 4

Over the past 18 months, the COVID-19 pandemic has been creating havoc around the globe. By August 2021, the virus had infected 200 million people worldwide, and more than 4.2 million people had died. One of the hardest-hit countries was the USA. In an effort to fight against COVID-19, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted emergency use authorizations (EUAs) for three COVID-19 vaccines from late 2020 to early 2021. The CDC reported that, in the US, as of July 26, 6,587 people have experienced COVID-19 infections from the Delta variant after being fully vaccinated and were hospitalized or died. Many experts raised concerns about the potential long-term health hazards of the vaccines themselves and the danger of repeated jabs, citing numerous reports of fatal or potentially fatal events following COVID vaccination. In the face of the rapidly mutating variants, it would be unwise to assume we can defeat COVID-19 and any future pandemics using the vaccine strategy. Dr. Brooke Goldner, MD also proved that a vegan diet can reverse “long COVID”. These studies are strong supporting evidence to the message brought by Ray Ippolito, director of the International Pandemic Outreach Initiative, and Mo Markham, co-founder of “Eating Animals Causes Pandemics.” Our most beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken extensively about COVID-19, and explains: “And it’s the time for retribution. No one can do anything about it. I can rescue the souls only if they repent. Physically speaking, they have to go through this time of cleansing and payment.” “If they U-turn and live compassionately, no more killing animals or man, then this pandemic will disappear in no time, without any medicine, without vaccine, without any trouble.” “I wish our planet is going to be alive and well forever, or for as long as it lasts, but not in turmoil, not in trouble, not in war, not in suffering for animals and for humans. Amen. May the Lord be kind and bless us with our cooperation, compassionate way of life.”

Eating Animals Causes Pandemics, Part 3 of 4

Eating Animals Causes Pandemics, Part 3 of 4

On today’s program, we look at some of the enormous suffering inflicted on humanity by the COVID-19 pandemic and the consequences of overlooking the fundamental causes of pandemics. As is well-known, COVID-19 can cause excruciating pain to those who contract it. Friends and relatives of those hospitalized also suffer. They cannot be by their loved one’s bedside during the illness and even death. Medical doctors and nurses also suffer. Often, hospital staff work 18-hour days and sleep in hallways, caring for the growing number of patients. They experience elevated risk of stress, burnout, depression, trauma, and other mental health challenges. The renowned Mayo Clinic in Florida, USA reports that COVID-19 can also lead to permanently damaged bodily organs. Children also suffer mentally as lockdowns force school closures around the globe.In addition to the immense physical and mental suffering, the pandemic has also wreaked financial havoc across the globe. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimates that during 2020, the global economy had its worst decline since the Great Depression of the 1930s. The economic decline and loss of jobs have created more homelessness and food insecurity in the world.Despite COVID-19 causing immense suffering, world authorities are concerned that the worst is yet to come. “This virus is very transmissible, and it kills people, and it deprives so many people of loved ones. But its current case fatality is reasonably low in comparison to other emerging diseases. This is a wake-up call.” Is there a surefire way to truly halt COVID-19 and all future pandemics? Mercifully, there is one: to globally transition to a plant-based food system. “We need to work to transition, to help these industries transition. We need to force our governments to not give them (livestock industries) subsidies in order to continue to do what they're doing, but to subsidize the transition to a plant-based system that will benefit all of us.”

Eating Animals Causes Pandemics, Part 2 of 4

On today’s program, we continue our discussion with Mo Markham and Ray Ippolito, the two primary coordinators, as they explain why they organized this global event. “We have all the science behind us. So, our goals are to get people to pay attention to the science and act on it. Not only people, but also governments and organisations and the media, to pay attention to the message. So, it's such important information if we don't want to do this again. And that's really our goal, is to help people to understand that we have to stop. We have to fix our broken food system, if we are going to avoid another pandemic.”However, some people argue that eating meat is their “personal choice.” Mo and Ray share their thoughts on this. “We're all connected. It’s a choice that affects all of us. It's a choice that affects the planet. It's a choice that affects every human being on the planet, from a climate perspective and from an environmental perspective and from a pandemic perspective now. And, it's taking away the choice of another animal. We're also killing the planet and we're destroying our own health. But we're also destroying the health of future generations if we're risking pandemics. We're risking the health of all of the people around us. And, you know, as we destroy the planet, we are destroying the planet for the children.”In the interview, Mo and Ray shared their thoughts about preventing future pandemics. “Absolutely everything that we're doing is coming back on us. Almost 19 million (people) a year dying from heart disease, colorectal cancer, and a list of other diseases. So that's immediate karma (from killing) that we're getting back in our lifetime. The pandemic, that's more karma, we’ve got that coming back.” “We can stop future pandemics if we globally adopt a plant-based diet. And on a personal level, we can mitigate the effects and protect ourselves if we eat a plant-based diet. So, it's win-win.”

Eating Animals Causes Pandemics, Part 1 of 4

On May 1, 2021, concerned people from 60 cities in 20 different countries participated in the International Pandemic Outreach Initiative, organized by Eating Animals Causes Pandemics, calling attention to the dangerous connection between pandemics and the exploitation of animals. In today’s episode, we learn from two of the primary organizers of this international initiative, Mo Markham and Ray Ippolito, why they are so worried about future pandemics.“Zoonotic viruses are when a virus jumps from one species to the next, from a non-human animal now to human animals. So, it has to do with a completely broken animal-based food system, but also coming from wildlife. And, you add in the petri dish of stacking tens of thousands of animals in cages, in confinement. And you're creating a perfect, perfect environment, a petri dish to create more viruses.” “We had SARS from eating animals. We've had avian flu, also known as bird flu, and swine flu, and Mad Cow disease as well. These are all present throughout the world all the time.” It is not just avian flu. While COVID-19 ravages the planet, other zoonoses and animal-related malaises are breaking out across the globe. Mo and Ray state that, Although we are facing a unique situation due to the unprecedented scale of livestock operations devastating our ecosystems, the media is not discussing this “elephant in the room.” “The media is not talking about it, and our governments are not talking about it. That's a huge issue. Greta Thunberg has been trying to say to us for several years now, listen to the science, listen to the science. And it all points in the same direction. It's all telling us that we need to end animal agriculture.”Our most gracious Supreme Master Ching Hai has also frequently warned about the deadly consequences of eating animals starting three decades ago, including climate change, environmental destruction, mass extinction of wildlife, pandemics and more. She is emphatic that there is only one way to stop COVID-19 and all future pandemics: the global adoption of a vegan lifestyle.

Classic Italian-American Cuisine, Part 2 of 2 – Vegan Spinach Lasagna

Classic Italian-American Cuisine, Part 2 of 2 – Vegan Spinach Lasagna

“Hi, my name is Dave, and today I’ll be showing you how to make vegan spinach lasagna. First off, we are going to cook our stuffing, which is going to be the vegan ground round and the firm tofu.” “Now, we’re going to make our tomato basil sauce. Once you get the tomatoes in, next we’re going to get our basil. Just take all the leaves and put them into the sauce. And then we are going to put in about one tablespoon of our extra virgin olive oil. And then we are going to put in about a teaspoon of our salt. Once it’s all ready, we’re just going to cap our blender and just start blending all the ingredients together until it’s well incorporated.” “Now that we have all our ingredients ready, we’re going to assemble our lasagna. So, first off, we start with our extra virgin olive oil, two tablespoons. We just want to spread all that oil around until it fully covers the bottom of the plate. That way, the lasagna noodles don’t stick to the bottom. And after we finish with that, we’re going to put our tomato basil sauce. It’ll be enough to not entirely submerge the lasagna noodles, but it’ll cover the entire side of the bottom of the lasagna. And next we’re going to put on our lasagna noodles. And then our second layer is going to be our spinach, just cover every space you can, until it covers up the tomato sauce.” “Next, I’m going to be using our vegan ground round and tofu. And just pour all the rest of our stuffing onto that second layer. Just make sure you spread all that stuffing so that each layer has an even amount of stuffing in there so it bakes very evenly. And next, we are going to be using our vegan mozzarella cheese and just spread that all over. This vegan cheese is going to make the lasagna very nice and creamy, and help retain some of the moisture in there.” “We’re going to put this in the oven at 230ºC (450ºF) for about 50 minutes. All right, now that our lasagna is all done, let’s take it out of the oven. It’s nice and hot. Let’s take a look at it. It turned out very nice. Our vegan cheese has melted very well. There’s a little bit of a crispy bit, that means it’s well cooked. I’m going to cut a large piece and serve it on a plate. There’s our lasagna. I’m just going to garnish it with some basil and it’s ready to go.”
