Let's talk about food today. a very common thing i hear form patients once they are back from vacation is " i couldn't eat well, i cheated a lot and i gained 5 kgs but i was walking" 🙊🙊.
although there's absolutely nothing wrong in indulgence but where do we draw the line . it's ok to enjoy your favourite cake , that deep fried fish or that ice cream. but do you have to do all at once 😶. there's a beautiful thing called balance. in between these indulgences one can have a clean fresh meal with loads of greens , fresh produce and antioxidants.
this was possibly my favourite meal of the whole trip , fresh #avocado toast 🥑 with beetroot hummus and greens with seeds .....yummy. clubbed it with freshly squeezed orange and turmeric juice. i felt good light and extra happy. ...and it was all clean good food. i was ready for my day 🤗🤗🤗🤗. although i balanced it with burger and fries in the next meal. but hello !!! balance .
may be food isn't such a big problem, it how we look at it. if we really love our food , it's impossible to go wrong with it .
tell me about your vacay food stories 😎🙂.

The pulitzer prize and grammy award-winning rapper kendrick lamar has launched his third shoe in collaboration with footwear giant, nike. the new vegan shoe is part of the nike cortez kenny range, which the brand says gets an “angelino staple” upgrade: the house shoe.
I usually don’t order a white pizza but i thought i’d change it up and give the one @triangletavern a try. i’m glad i did. this thing was awesome. i think i may have liked it better than the red one. the triangle’s pizza has really been improved over the years. i’m guessing it’s @violifeamerica they are using now. but yeah this is really good. if you are into a white pizza i’d highly recommend. it’s really good cold the next day too if you have leftovers.

#vegan seitan a la parrilla!
“filete de seitan” this homemade seitan is the product of 2 years of studious testing. my goal was to create a super thin cut of seitan utilizing a myriad of traditional mexican spices / herbs; one that had good gluten structure but remained juicy - even on the grill. i’m close - can’t wait for you all to try all the different things i’ve been working on! real deal comida from the heart - chicano soul food!

In factory farming, piglets would be taken from their mothers at about 3-4 weeks. this means that mae's babies would already be taken from her. and it's clear to see that they still need her.
until they are weaned, the mom and babies live in farrowing crates. farrowing crates are generally 5x7 feet and the average length of an adult pig is 5 - 6 feet. this leaves very little room for mom to move. the industry says that sows can naturally be aggressive and vicious animals, so farrowing crates are used to keep the sow from being overly stressed and fighting other hogs. while, we know all moms are protective of their babies, we also know that mae does not act aggressively when we interact with her piglets. protective but not aggressive.
farrowing crates are cruel in every way. they limit moms movements and prevent her from turning around while also preventing her from doing the things she feels she needs to do as a mother like interacting with her babies and nest building as the crates are commonly built on fully or partially slatted floors.
imagine not being able to care for your children, not being able to comfort them if they are cold, sick or even worse. this is no life for any mom. we can and should be doing better.
we are incredibly grateful that we were able to give mae the opportunity to love and raise her babies and ensure that they have the very best life possible.
