No reason at all to eat animal meat when there is Beyond Meat!!! My sister was shocked at how delicious the Beyond Burger tastes “much tastier than beef” were her words! She’s sold!!! I topped it with homemade vegan shiitake bacon with crispy kale 🌱(from the garden) and sweet potato 🍠 fries on the side! 😋
It has been soooooooo long since I've made pancakes😍 I used @copperbranchnewmarket blueberry pancake mix with chocolate almond milk and added extra fresh blueberries on top😋 oh and can't forget the pure maple syrup
This was my treat after the gym 😉

Cows, pigs, chickens and sheep can all be directly dosed with pesticides to prevent pest infestation in the overcrowded and unsanitary conditions that exist on factory farms. But perhaps more important is the extent to which animals are exposed to crop pesticides through their food.
Pesticide residues are found in meat and animal byproducts, including, disturbingly, long-banned pesticides like DDT. These pesticides mostly come from the food that animals eat and end up getting stored in their fat, accumulating over time.
Unfortunately government agencies charged with ensuring the safety of our food are not taking adequate action. The Office of Inspector General found that the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Environmental Protection Agency and Food and Drug Administration did not do enough to protect the public from pesticides, veterinary drugs and heavy metals in meat, prompting the obligatory “How many governmental agencies does it take to screw in a light bulb?” joke.
The Environmental Working Group estimates that a whopping 167 million pounds of pesticides are used each year just to grow food for animals in the United States. For glyphosate, the most commonly used pesticide in the world, residues allowed in animal feed can be more than 100 times that allowed on grains consumed directly by humans, and the amount of glyphosate allowed in red meat is more than 20 times that for most plant crops.
