There are so many informative, helpful and inspiring websites on the internet. These are the ones that I have explored and can highly recommend. I have hundreds more to visit and add to my website library. If you know of others that you would like me to share, please leave them in the chat. It takes a village to help educate each other, right? And please visit my site again, as I will be adding more websites to the list as time goes on.
mainly ANIMAL issues
Humane Decisions - There are so many wonderful resources on this site about all things related to animal rights. You'll be amazed! There is also a great section about health and food. To get there, click on Humane Decisions, in the section, below.
Kinder World - The original purpose of this website was to introduce the world to the iconic and seminal vegan speech that was given by animal rights activist, Gary Yourofsky. It grew to include over 100 videos about animal rights, and eventually, health and the environment.
Bite Size Vegan - As Emily Moran Barwick (founder of BSV) states, "Bite Size Vegan aims to serve as an 'entry point' to explore veganism in an approachable, non-threatening environment ..." as well as serving "as a source of teaching tools for current vegans and activists." Be sure to Google "Bite Size Vegan videos" and enjoy Emily's wry and clever approach to discussing veganism.
People for Ethical Treatment of Animals - PETA is the largest animal rights organization in the world. If you don't know about them, you will be amazed by all the wonderful things they have accomplished for animals over the years.
Farm Sanctuary - To quote their website "(Farm Sanctuary) is a space of refuge and tranquility, where life is sacred and trauma is healed." This link will take you to a very touching video called The Power of Sanctuary. Don't miss it! It'll warm your heart.
ADAPTT - Animals Deserve Absolute Protection Today and Tomorrow is an organization founded on the principle that all animals have the right to live unfettered by human dominance. ADAPTT was created by Gary Yourofsky - animal rights activists and lecturer (see "The Most Important Speech You Will Ever Hear" under SPEECHES & TALKS).
Veterinary Association for the Protection of Animals - VAPA's mission is to raise awareness about the benefits of veganism and to support humane teaching in veterinary surgical training.
mainly HEALTH, FOOD, AND FITNESS issues
Challenge 22 - As they say on their site, "Let's try vegan, together." If you are on Facebook, I highly recommend that you try this challenge. There's no commitment to do anything but watch, listen and ask questions from a mentor when you are ready. And it's FREEEEE.
Humane Decisions - Their "GoVegan, Live Vegan" pages have resources on how to start your yummy and healthy plant-based culinary journey. There are links to plant-based starter guides, recipes, travel tips, vegan challenges, and MUCH MORE!
Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine - To quote their website, "Our efforts are dramatically changing the way doctors treat chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and cancer. By putting prevention over pills, doctors are empowering their patients to take control of their own health."
NutritionFacts.org - If you are looking for videos, highly acclaimed books, and other resources about "all things nutrition," then this is definitely the website for you.
What's Plant-Based Cooking Good Looking? - Here you'll find a warm and welcoming community that will support you wherever you are on your plant-based journey.
The Easy Breezy Whole Foodie - Created by a new friend who used a whole food plant-based lifestyle to reverse obesity, this site provides a shortcut, seven steps, to break the addiction to the animal-based standard American diet.
Sport Performance, Injury Prevention, Plant-Based Nutrition - (This is the website of my dear friend, Suzanna McGee. She is my also my fitness coach and the gal who convinced me to write my book!)
mainly ENVIRONMENTAL issues
Sea Shephard Conservation Society - Sea Shepherd’s sole mission is to protect and conserve the world’s oceans and marine wildlife. We work to defend all marine wildlife, from whales and dolphins, to sharks and rays, to fish and krill, without exception.
mainly VEGAN NEWS
VEGAN VISUAL ART
Are You Making a Difference? - There are all kinds of creative ways to make a difference. My friend Amy has chosen to spread the word by creating postcards that combine her whimsical artwork with the vegan message and then sending them to politicians. See her page called POSTCARDS TO POLITICIANS.
