What being vegan means to me

☀️ Tuesday we had a beautiful blue sky in Oxford. The sun was shining and giving us energy and vitamin D.

But I didn’t feel full of happiness. Once again I was sad because of the food wastage we encounter every day, and I see a respect going away between my flatmates (including me). That is why I finally decided that all food I can get from job, I’ll give it to homeless and hopeless people, because I know they need it, I know they won’t waste, and if I can make someone happy, even for a little time, I’ll try, I’ll do.

Yesterday (Wednesday), we nature gave us a burning sky, and I thank it a lot, for all those colours, the magic, the beauty after a rainy, windy and cold day. I really felt like the bad went away, and I felt so peaceful.

I went to the city centre with a box containing 2 hot dogs, 2 cheeseburgers, and 4 steak pies. I got this from work and as I hate wastage I took as much as I can to give it. I re-heated all of this to give them something as hot as I can regarding this cold day we had.
I gave food to two homeless men, and the second one was so shocked of all the food I gave him. He thanks me a lot. I was just happy to help him for few days.
For sure, the food wasn’t vegan, but I didn’t feel guilty. Yesterday, two men were happy to have something to eat, and that is what I wanted.
Then I gave back his bus card to a student of my university who has lost it. And finally, I realised that it’s not because the sky is blue, you will have a good day. It’s totally what you make of your day that makes it good or bad. And the sum of all your actions and the feeling you have after making it determine who you are.

“Nous saurons qui nous sommes quand nous verrons ce que nous avons fait. ”

“We will know who we are when we see what we have done.”

☼ Hi little suns ! 😀 I know this is an article in French, but it describes very well what a vegan eats, and that we can have lot of diferent meals, as much (maybe more ? ) as omnivorous people 🙂

We Are Vege

Alors ça c’est de la question à 3000 ! Mais oui, comment faire ses courses quand on est vegan ?
Je pourrais vous dire d’enfiler un manteau (ou un simple blouson si le temps est plus clément), sortir de chez vous, fermer la porte et vous rendre clopin-clopant jusqu’au magasin de victuailles avant de récupérer un panier/caddie et acheter vos petits produits. Mais bien entendu, cela ne vous aiderait pas beaucoup. Alors pour vous, ce soir, je vais relever ce défi incroyable qu’est de faire ses courses EN TANT QUE VEGAN !

Hum, bien…

Changer de façon de s’alimenter peut paraître un peu effrayant au début. “Comment qu’j’vais m’y prendre ?” “Qu’est c’on va manger ?” “J’remplace par quoi le boeuf ?” “Pourquoi z’ont voté Trump ces cons ?” “Est c’on a vraiment marché sur la lune ?” ou “Ptain mais qu’est c’j’suis en train de lire bon dieu ?”.
