Beyond carnism & toward rational, authentic food choices

Hello everybody !

Today I wanted to write a different article from usual. It was raining outside, and I was on Youtube, watching videos, when I stumbled upon Melanie Joy’s TED Talk about carnism. It deals with the reason why we consider eating animals is a normal thing to do, basically. I strongly advise you to watch it, it is eye-opening, and only 20 minute-long or so.

I had already watch Gary Yourofsky’s best speech you’ll ever hear who argues in favor of veganism, and I already knew about all the arguments supported by vegetarians and vegans in favor of our health, the environment, and the animals. I have seen all the violent footages of slaughterhouses and animal killings. But I found that Melanie Joy’s speech brought something new to the table.

“To get mud off your hands, use soap and water. To get blood off your hands, go vegan.”

The Louvre museum, The Conjuring 2 & vegan restaurant : A pretty busy Saturday in Paris

Good morning guys ! It’s already Sunday, how time flies… But I had the most delightful Saturday so I thought I’d share my day with you.

7:00am : After waking up pretty early, I made breakfast. And who says weekend says… Pancakes (again, I know !). I had made them the day before so I just had to heat some frozen raspberries to make the sauce, and cut some fruit to add on top. Served with a big cup of green tea, no better way to start the day feeling energized and happy.

The other day, I remembered that I had an account on runningheroes.com so I decided to check it out. As I have started running more consistently again since I’ve been back from my holidays in Italy, it turned out that I had a few points on my account because I’ve ran every other day.

My June’s breakfast staples

Good morning guys ! Today, no recipe, but I’m still writing about food (yay!) and more specifically breakfast food (arguably the best one).

I know that some of you probably do not have time to make their breakfast in the morning because they’re working / always late / can’t be bothered to / buy something on the way out etc, but trust me, eating breakfast is important. Literally, it is a meal designed to help you “break the fast” after your night’s sleep. It is therefore important to eat, but also to eat properly and something healthy.

Here are my go-to ingredients of the moment :

  • Weetabix
  • 5 cereal oats
  • A gluten free muesli
  • 100% sugar free puffed wheat

Vegan barley & cacao pancakes tower (oil free & sugar free !)

Good morning guys ! Summer in Paris can be really sad and disappointing : the grey sky, the cold wind and of course… rain. So I decided to cheer me up my swapping my daily morning oats with some cacao pancakes. Yummy ! The best part is that they are vegan, oil free and sugar free. Sounds impossible, I know, but trust me, these are the most basic pancakes ever : so quick to make, with only four ingredients.
