VEGAN. The dirty five letter word.

No: human’s were not ‘meant’ to be vegan, we evolved to become omnivores for a reason, to be able to survive everywhere and in any climate .

No: not all vegan food is ‘healthy’. (oreos are vegan for pete’s sake.) To be vegan for ‘health reasons’ without fully understanding what it means could see you still feeling shitty and gaining weight.

It’s not about being the biggest animal lover ever, or about saving the world. It’s doing research, and then doing whatever the phuck you want, based on what you know (which is what we do anyway). Be reaslistic. Eat meat, eat less meat, eat more veg, try vegetarianism, try veganism, go veggie, do meatless mondays. Whatever.

But be informed. Do know where your food comes from, how it is produced. Eat what you want.

Today I hugged a tree…

 Anyway, so there’s this one tree in my front yard and it’s the perfect width for hugging. No idea what struck me to hug it, but it was awesome.

Made me feel top banana, as if a kind of sweet-ass energy somehow bridged the gap between the the grippy,dry bark and the outer membrane of my skin, funnelling through my pores and into my blood stream, emanating from the core of the tree.  

I dunno if you’ve ever hugged a tree before, but if you let it, the short-lived action can be kinda awesome. (fuck science off for like 10 seconds…)

First of all, hugs just make you feel good. Hugs just do that, ya know? Secondly, it was awesome to really recognise and acknowledge the life force of a tree. I walk past a few hundred everyday, but hugging one made me stop and appreciate just how… ALIVE the tree is, from under the ground, where roots are absorbing nutrients and water, through to the xylem and phloem (veins of a plant), nourishing the trunk and carrying goodness through boughs to branches to twigs and finally the leaves, and to the tops of the branches, where the leaves of this particular treem were falling off to prepare the tree for winter. #naturewhysoclever 

Point is: fuck yeah get yourself some good vibes, hug a tree.
