Heal the Macho

I am trying to understand our belief system that keeps us identifying with predators, and for example calls one of the most violent animals known “the King of the Savannah.” Is that really a viable role model today? Why not call lions the "Brutal Killers of the Savannah", when the first thing Alfa males do … Continue reading Heal the Macho

A Culture of Predators

In my first of a series of 3 blogs - I explored the fact that we eat animals even if it’s immensely clear scientifically that it’s killing us and nature, leaving the Earth to a destiny of a dusty over-heated desert, a scenario well depicted in the movie Interstellar. Thankfully few doubt our human contribution … Continue reading A Culture of Predators

Animal Sourced Food is Toxic for Humans

Picture a chicken walking around gracefully with its grand feathers beaming, or a fish swirling in the sparkling water, or a cow looking at you with it’s big eyes. Now, if I tell you to kill it and rip it open with your teeth, would you want to do that, could you? Probably not as … Continue reading Animal Sourced Food is Toxic for Humans

Yogis know that animal sourced food is seen as a "low-value" food that drains us of energy and health. It makes us sluggish, and in the long run makes us ill. Modern science has vastly proven the ancient Yogic … Continue reading Nutrition – 1st of 5 Pillars of Yoga

Bugs Are Not Here to Bug Us

The future (very soon) will probably imply food shortage or at least shortage of space to grow it. Countries like Saudi Arabia and China are buying land to produce feed to produce meat for a growing population. Other countries like yours and mine are buying land as speculation. Among the largest buyers are state owned … Continue reading Bugs Are Not Here to Bug Us

The best way to avoid food poisoning when travelling

“If I only would have stayed vegan…” My daughter’s voice was weak, blaming herself for not staying to plant-based food while traveling. She had a tortilla española, (Spanish omelette) just before catching a bus. Her gut feeling was to not eat it, but as so often in our society her mind shut her gut down, … Continue reading The best way to avoid food poisoning when travelling
