Animals Rights March 2018

I would just like to share this important event coming up on 25th August.

As you all know, I am an animals rights activist/ vegan ninja 😛 and I am so happy that I will be a part of this year’s Animal Rights March. I can’t wait to be around such compassionate people and, of course to meet other vegans in the country! If you’re joining, do let me know, I would love to meet you! Just shoot me a message on Instagram @kymberlymaitlandsmith.

UNITE FOR THE ANIMALS!

The Official Animal Rights March is an annual vegan march founded by UK animal rights organisation Surge. The march began in London in 2016 with 2,500 vegans and in 2017 the march doubled to 5,000 vegans marching for animal liberation through London. In 2018, we’re bringing The Official Animal Rights March to the Philippines in order to spread the message of animal liberation across the globe.

In order to make this march succeed, we need your help. Invite your friends, tell every vegan you meet, this is the day where we unite, where we stand up, rise up and say no more, not in our name.

The future is vegan, but we must continue to speak out on behalf of the animals until the day that their suffering ends.

Save the date, spread the word – and let’s make history for the animals.

Here are a few reminders to help you get ready!

We are encouraging all participants to unify in wearing black shirts on the day of the march. Any writing on it would preferably have a message relevant to animal rights and veganism. This is an animal rights event, so please DON’T WEAR any animal-derived clothing (e.g., leather, fur, silk, down, suede and wool) and please DON’T BRING AND EAT any animal-derived “food”/beverages (e.g., meat, fish, honey, dairy, and eggs) during the march.

WHAT TO BRING:
* Signs/placards/banners/flags (with animal rights/vegan messages)
* Drinking water using reusable bottles
* Umbrella
* Megaphone, drums/percussion, whistle (if you have one)

We also advice you not to bring your animal companion because the activity might stress them out.

See you all on August 25 at Andres Bonifacio Shrine, Manila!

Stir Fry Miso Udon

Stir Fry Miso Udon

My quick, go-to meal. I am obsessed with noodles…

Prepare your udon noodles by cooking them in a pot of boiling water for 3 to 4 minutes and then putting them into a colander

Chop up garlic, green beans, tofu, and spring onion

Heat up a saucepan, pour some sesame oil and add the garlic

After 1 minute, pour in some soy sauce, sweet rice wine, sriracha
and a dash of maple syrup to taste

Add the string beans and cook for approximately 4 minutes while stirring

Add the tofu and a pinch of salt

Mix the udon into the saucepan and stir

Pour the noodles into a bowl, add the spring onions and throw in sesame seeds

Viola! Enjoy!

Green beans are high in fiber, great with preventing blood clots in arteries and veins, controls diabetes, is great for bone health, eye care, and also boosts your immunity! Tofu is high in protein, magnesium, iron, calcium, zinc, and vitamin B1. ♡ Plant based, baby!

Squash ‘n Barley Me

Easy and filling! This meal is low in fat and a good source of protein, vitamin A + C + K + B6, dietary fiber, and magnesium.

Cook barley with 1 cup barley to 3 cup water ratio, chopped garlic and salt

Chop up more garlic for the squash

Cut squash up into medium sized cubes and heat in a pan with dairy-free butter or cooking oil of choice till cubes soften

Add apple cider vinegar, nutritional yeast, garlic salt and pepper to taste

Place in bowl and top with ground pistachios

Enjoy!
