I have never believed our help would come from the people + systems that oppressed us in the first place. That desire + drive for change for your people is birthed through our struggle. It comes from living it everyday. 
As activists/advocates for our communities we are rooted in hope, armed with knowledge, filled with an unshakable spirit + backed by our ancestors ✊🏽 We are the heros we've been waiting for.

Be sure + support those that do this thankless work. @comptonvegan is helping heal the community one meal at a time👏🏽 🙌🏽👑 .

This is a huge part of the reason my activism evolved from the animal rights movement to (plant-based) food justice. • • • •

What are your thoughts? 
Is the animal rights movement intitled to care only about animals lives? Or, if your a movement built on compassion should your outreach expand to the humans that consume the animals + the workers/farmers handling them? 
Should there be a separate plant-based/health movement? (Please be respectful in the comments, I 👏🏽block 👏🏽all 👏🏽negative 👏🏽energy)

Okay, I know this information might make some of ya'll feel a way but I'm giving it to you anyway. Often times we're told to avoid salt by our doctors + sent home. No one every really breaks down who the saltiest suspects are. So we avoid potato chips + other obviously salty snacks thinking we're good. But surprisingly those aren't the worst on the list. Bread, pizza, cold cuts + cured meats have much more salt in them than you could ever imagine. Which is why people rinse their pre-sliced deli meats (which does nothing btw🤦🏽‍♀️) So FYI If the meat is canned or packaged with a solution rinsing might reduce sodium a small amount, but probably won't have a significant effect on overall sodium since the sodium is used in the processing + is dissolved into the meat, meaning that shit ain't just rinsing off! Your best bet is to NOT mess with processed meats at all if possible. When you purchase chicken or any other animal meat in the store it says stuff like 100% Natural or boneless, skinless 95% fat free. It doesn't warn you at all about all the sodium + other additives AT ALL! These companies think they slick, which is why I'm giving you the game unsolicited 😂 
I want ya'll to be informed before making choices at the market, because with every meal you're either feeding disease or fighting it.

I can't lie to y'all family, since Sunday my soul has been unsettled. Nip's murder shook me + my city; LA is still grieving in a major way 💔 
But I've been finding peace in the community. We have so many odds against but still we rise. I'm comforted  knowing Nipsey's hustle for the hood will NEVER die. That warrior spirit cannot be removed. We gon keep that same energy! ✊🏽 Losing Nip has only amplified my love for the soldiers that we still have + been had, like Wo'se @babasvegancafe 🙌🏽 This King has been dedicated to us + South Central/Crenshaw area for years! Blessing our community with his amazing energy + delicious (I mean bomb, bomb) healthy plant-based food at Lemiert Park EVERY Sunday! 
We will not be moved, silenced or intimidated by anyone. We grew up in these streets. This is home 🖤

The sad truth is that when I was first transitioning to a plant-based lifestyle about 11 years ago one of my biggest obstacles was people; my own people. 
I was called boujee + white because I wanted to go vegan years before it became the thing to do😭🤷🏽‍♀️ One of the biggest reasons my activism changed to food justice vs. animal rights is because healthy plant-based eating needs to be normalized in OUR communities. 
Because I'm so tired of hearing that black people don't and won't go vegan and that wanting to eat healthier is  elitist + white. The concept of plant-based eating comes from our ancestors/indigenous peoples in the first place. 
Did any of you have a difficult time transitioning to a plant-based diet/lifestyle due to community/cultural pressures? What obstacles did you face + what advice can you give on overcoming?? .

Did you know Eggplants help improve digestion, aid in managing weight, reduce risk of anemia, prevent cancer + heart disease, improves bone health + prevents osteoporosis + helps improve cognitive ability + brain health? Well now you do! 🙌🏽🤣 P.S. I know eggplants taste delicious fried but FYI when you fry eggplants it counteracts a lot of the health benefits, causes weight gain + negatively impacts heart conditions. Plus when fried, they absorb fat so throw them in the oven instead 🤤

Do you know about the Dirty Dozen + the Clean Fifteen? Not knowing can cost you more money at the market. Let's be real buying everything organic, local + super farm fresh just isn't a reality for everyone. 
So when you're shopping + organic isn't an option keep in mind the Clean Fifteen are sprayed with fewer pesticides than the Dirty Dozen so it's not as bad if you purchase those conventional/non-organic. 
Either way wash whatever produce you bring home in a water + vinegar solution before you eat. 🍇🍈🍉🍊🍏🍋🥑🍍🍓🥦🥬🍑🥕🍌 #Repost @plantromance

Do You Buy Any Organic? 🌱
IF YOU DO NOT: I would strongly recommend at the very least purchasing foods referenced on the dirty dozen list, organic. The reason why? They are highly contaminated with a wide array of chemicals, some reaching 40+ different types. I understand it can be expensive or hard to find. The more people buy organic, the cheaper and more available it will become 💙

How much of your grocery shopping is done in the produce section of the market? ••• At least 85% for me 🙋🏽‍♀️

As long as I've known Lauren Ornelas she has been an unmovable force.

I love this clip of her telling it like it is about the discrimination within the vegan/animal rights movement.

WHITE PROCESSED SUGAR IS A DRUG! And so many of our communities are hooked. Eating too much added sugar can have many negative health effects on your body.

An excess of sweetened foods and beverages can lead to weight gain, blood sugar problems and an increased risk of heart disease, among other dangerous conditions. Anytime you can avoid it you should! .

Why am I like this!? 🤣 This is me every time I go to the market without a shopping list 😭

If you're grocery shopping on a budget like me it’s important to shop with a plan. Browsing grocery store ads is everything + a lot of ppl don't do it 🤷🏽‍♀️ Making a list of the best deals and where they come from is a good idea (especially if you live in an under-served community with limited access to a local market. Because more often than not we have to leave our neighborhoods for groceries + knowing where the best deals are saves time + money🤑)
So if you're not creating a list of sale items you should be! Not only will it help you avoid impulse purchases, it will also help you to avoid return trips to the market because you forgot something + a return trip to the store to pick up something you forgot usually means that you'll end up buying stuff you don't need 🤦🏽‍♀️ ••••
Tip: Items go on sale based on availability and demand. This is why you see cherries, watermelon, + avocados on sale during the summer and squash and pumpkins on sale in the fall + winter

As I start digging deeper into our food systems and food injustices that working folks face, the above becomes more and more true.

Vegans, particularly yt vegans, love to say it’s not. But let’s be clear, that for many people of color, it is. A study found that Black folks have to travel 1.15 miles more on average to get to a grocery store than white folks do.

Couple that with high rates of fast food chains in POC communities (food swamps) and you have the injustice of food inequity when it comes to just physically accessing fruits and vegetables, which are main sources of nutrients for vegans. 
Now let’s talk about time. Busyness is a huge factor in being able to be vegan. Many folks work more than one job, and sometimes more than 2! To make veganism not so expensive, you have to prep and make a lot of your food. For some people, this is not doable. I have this privilege. I have the time to buy and cook fresh veggies, make my beans from dry beans (which are much cheaper than canned and have way less salt), and prep my fruits to be eaten while at school. Having lots of time, just like having lots of money, is a privilege.

BUT veganism, or just access to more fruits and veggies, doesn’t HAVE to be a privilege. It can be available to everyone, if there was the will to do it. 
Firstly, we have to admit that it’s a privilege. 
Recognizing that not everyone is able to make the change is needed. Because from there we can start trying to remove the barriers that people face. Whether it’s low access to fresh fruits, high access to non vegan fast food or one of the many other barriers, we can help remove those through policy and community engagement & action. If vegans were more active in changing oppressive systems for humans maybe we could get more people to make more vegan because they would have the access to it. Vegans need to do more for human animals to help nonhuman animals! Intersectionality matters in all social justice movements.

5 Health Reasons to Choose a More Plant-centered Lifestyle:

1. Lower rates of • A vegan diet caused more calories to be burned after meals, in contrast to non vegan diets which may cause fewer calories to be burned because food is being stored as fat.

2. Prevention + management of diabetes • A low fat plant based diet may help prevent and treat diabetes by improving insulin sensitivity and decreasing insulin resistance.

3. Lower risk of heart disease • In one study 82% of patients with heart disease who followed a plant-based diet had some level of regression of athersclerosis. Comprehensive lifestyle changes appeared to be the catalyst that brought about this regression of even severe coronary atherosclerosis after only one year.

4. Lower blood pressure •  Vegan and vegetarian diets are associated with lower systolic blood pressure and lower diastolic blood pressure.

5. Increased longevity • Excessive consumption of red meat is associated with an increased risk of all cause mortality  and an increased risk of cardiovascular mortality. Low meat intake has been associated with longevity.

Okay family let's talk about the destructive things we do to ourselves.

Do you see this fridge + freezer? 👀
Now, this is the same family that will cry, blame white supremacy + be ready to protest when their babies are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. 
But who put that food in there? Who did the grocery shopping? Who's doing the cooking? We have to start wanting to live more than hate wants us to die. 
There is enough oppression going on outside our bodies, our organs don't need to be under self inflicted oppression as well. If you want black liberation, liberate your black body first.

Okay family let's talk about the destructive things we do to ourselves.

Do you see this fridge + freezer? 👀
Now, this is the same family that will cry, blame white supremacy + be ready to protest when their babies are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD.
But who put that food in there? Who did the grocery shopping? Who's doing the cooking? We have to start wanting to live more than hate wants us to die.
There is enough oppression going on outside our bodies, our organs don't need to be under self inflicted oppression as well. If you want black liberation, liberate your black body first.

I used to eat chickens + the embryonic fluid of their unborn children too 🤮 but that was 10yrs ago 🙌🏽
We all have to start somewhere.

By now we know a plant-based diet is the most beneficial for optimal health, peace for animals + restoration to our planet(not up for debate). We cannot continue to ignore facts and do what feels good. 
No doubt companies are targeting people of color, the government is firing from all sides + we got generations of unpacked trauma but we also have the power to decide to change our immediate atmosphere. Turn off Love & Hip-Hop + put on a documentary, choose vegetables instead of chemically processed meat, think positive not negative, be kind instead of brutal, read to your children, limit social media, tell the truth not the lie, remove toxic low vibrational people from your life, meditate. I'm not saying people of color need to get over our hurt + sage everything away. I'm saying let's start by changing what we can. We have more information available to us now than ever before, we need to use it! Decolonizing your diet is an act of resistance + a great way to start. Change your frequency. 
We can't do anything for each other if we're dead or dying. .

But when I say people of color are being attacked from every angle people tell me I'm reaching. When I say our food system and every other system is racist I'm called, "out-there" + a "conspiracy theorist." Call me whatever tha fuck you want but my ears hear, my eyes see, my brain thinks and my heart feels. I know the real cancers that plague my community. I won't stop working + fighting for oppressed people because the proof exists and the evidence is real. 
PEOPLE OF COLOR ARE BEING ELIMINATED SYSTEMATICLLY + INTENTIONALLY PERIOD.

#BREAKING The #Fairness4FarmworkersAct was introduced TODAY! 
When the Fair Labor Standards Act was passed in 1938, it improved life for most workers by guaranteeing the right to overtime pay and the minimum wage. But the FLSA fell victim to Jim Crow era discrimination and EXCLUDED farmworkers from its protections & this exclusion affect farm workers today. 
We say 80 years of exclusion from overtime wage is ENOUGH! 
This proposed Act would remove #farmworker exclusion from the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) of 1938.  Just as the California legislation, it will phase-in overtime pay over a period of four years. Our nation’s 2.5 million farm workers deserve the Fairness for Farmworkers Act NOW! #Overtime4Farmworkers #WeFeedYou @ufwf

"We all know too well the invisible forms of racism in our society. We know the iniquities in income and opportunity. We know the brutal violence and discrimination of the police. We know the shooting of black children. We know the name of Tamir Rice. We know the name of a unarmed black men shot in the back. We know the name of Stephon Clark. 
But we don't know the names of millions of African Americans killed every year by an invisible form of racism, a silent and insidious injustice.

This is an often - internalized force of racism and oppression that disproportionately affects the poor and African American communities.

We do know that 1.3% of all deaths are caused by gun violence. And it is real and tragic and needs to end.

But we may not know that 70% of deaths are caused by chronic disease - mostly the result of our toxic food system. 
More African Americans are killed by bad food than anything else.

The science is clear - our processed, sugary, starchy diet is the single biggest cause of disease and death - type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, cancer, and even the dementia.

Our food system is the deadliest weapon against the poor and minorities - keeping them poor, sick and fat, hijacking their brains and biology." • • •

My privilege allows for me to live close enough to 6 different grocery stores within 2 miles of my house. ⠀

My privilege allows for me to shop around for the best prices and at the stores that fit my dietary needs. ⠀

My privilege allows for me to pack wholesome lunches with/for my kids (featured above) each night.⠀
.⠀
My privilege allows for me to remember the wholesome lunches my mom packed for me to eat at school, each day, through my senior year in high-school. ⠀

But these are my privileges; these are not the norms. ⠀

I challenge you, the next time you grocery shop or pack your or your child’s lunch, to consider your privileges. ⠀

What privileges do you have in regards to food? Who can you think of that isn’t benefiting from your same privilege? ⠀

ONE HEALTHY MEAL AT A TIME 🍎

It's that simple family; no pressure just ONE step at a time. I can't tell how many people tell me that they tried going vegan for a week and stopped🤷🏽‍♀️ A lot of people view "going vegan" as an all or nothing venture, when it really doesn't have to be. Meatless Mondays, vegan till 4, flexitarian...I could go on + on, people coming up with new shit every day 😂 
Making adjustments that you want to last in your life is about doing what's comfortable for you + not beating yourself up along the way. For some of us our health journey starts over night for others its gradual. 
At my Store Tours events (pictured above) the focus isn't on what you're doing wrong. The plant-based nutritionists + educators are there to give the information you need to start doing things right. 
Change can be overwhelming + learning that you've been played by the FDA ya whole life takes a minute to get over. But if you can remember that your health changed  for the bad one meal at a time, know that it can be restored one meal at time as well 🙌🏽 • • •

Here's just one of the money saving Store Tours Tips from my grocery store program with @ralphsgrocery Store Tours, where plant-based nutritionists + educators teach families in low-income communities how to shop plant-based within their budget 💵 .
.

SAVE MONEY 🤑 + STAY SPICY 🌶

STORE TOURS TIP:
Don't get your spices pre-mixed. Spice mixes are crazy expensive for what you're getting and the same goes for artisanal salts (aka fancy handmade salts😂) You'd be surprised, it's super easy to make these "mixes" yourself with the individual ingredients. For example, instead of buying Mexican Seasoning turn the bottle over and look at the mix ingredients. 9 times outta 10 the individual spice is less expensive sold separately! Make the mix yourself + get creative while you're at it!!
.
.

I'll be posting more tips + information, that way if you can't make it out to an event the program can some what come to you here on ig family✊🏽

I recently read a TIME article while researching racism in modern America (nerd alert 🤓) and so much of what was said in, "Don't Let the Loud Bigots Distract You. America's Real Problem With Race Cuts Far Deeper" is rarely discussed on a grand scale. •
• "We evade the historical wounds, the individual pain and the lasting affects of it all. The lynched relative; the buried son killed at the hands of the police; the millions locked away to rot in prisons; the children languishing in failed schools; the smothering, concentrated poverty passed down from generation to generation; and the generalized indifference to lives lived in the shadows of the American Dream are generally understood as exceptions to the American story not the rule." •
• "[We are disregarded] while all the talk about equality serves as a kind of cover for the actual practices that continue to reproduce differential outcomes for Black and Brown people and protect white class advantage." No matter how quite its kept the under belly of this country is grotesque + barbaric. The silent majority must be challenged. Our History isn't just full of loud racists, it's also engulfed consented silence. •
