I’m Dreaming of a Green Christmas

This year, I’m dreaming of a green Christmas—where animals aren’t abused, the environment isn’t polluted, and people are healthy and light. Here are five reasons why I’ll be having a vegan feast instead of eating animal flesh this Christmas:

1. ‘Tis the season for peace and goodwill. Only a Grinch would cram animals into filthy cages or sheds, mutilate them, and dismember them while they’re still conscious—which are all routine abuses in the meat industry.

2. Meat production causes climate change: We never know if we’ll have a white Christmas or an Indian summer. If you don’t want a dirty lump of coal in your stocking, choose green foods—vegan ones.

3. Who wants a heart attack for the holidays? If you’d rather spend your time on the ice rink than in the emergency room, pile your plate with healthy vegan versions of traditional favorites.

4. Vegans tend to weigh less than meat-eaters do. You don’t want to get too fat to fit down the chimney if you’re playing Santa.

5. Versatile vegan foods generally cost less than meat. We could all use more money to spend stuffing our stockings, rather than our faces.

    As a favor to yourself please do some research and use common sense before considering something you read online as fact. Most individuals and organizations are extremely biases, and for most, the ends justify the means.

    It’s all about balance, which if one takes a good look at nature and science, will notice that balance is the ultimate theme of the universe.

    Food for thought.

    This is my first year as a vegetarian and I know it will not be easy to share the meal with my family but I will try to keep it as vegan as I can. Wish me luck!!!
