How Is McDonald’s Different In Sweden?

[UltraVid id=179 ]- I am here to try all the unique things that they have on the menu here, including McVegan. In a country
where one out of 10 people is either vegan or vegetarian, does the burger really
live up to its hype? First off, falafel. In four or nine pieces with yogurt and herb dip. It comes in a little dry packet like that, but then you get the added dipping sauce. You can choose from a
massive selection of them. A little but spicy, like a little
bit herby. It’s really dry. Now for the Chicken and Hummus Salad. The chicken’s cooked really nicely. The whole thing’s got like a really big range of flavors in there. As well as normal fries,
McDonald’s does sweet potato fries. They’re not bad, they’re
just not overwhelmingly sweet potato-y. I think it’s probably just because of the grease and the salt. This is so good. This thing is genuinely
like the king of dips. This is just a peasant
dip, this is the dip king. It looks like a really,
really luxurious dip. Woah! That smells like truffles. It’s got really, really, really truffle-y, mushroom-y aftertaste. It just immediately tastes like a standard McDonald’s mayo. Yes, that is beer on the menu. It’s served in selected
European and Asian countries. What I’m expecting is quite citrus-y, and slight bitterness in the aftertaste. Hoping it actually lives up to that. It’s alright, maybe if you
have really flavorsome food, and you have this too, somehow
it’ll complement each other. It’s really nothing to write
home from Stockholm about. Last, but not least, the McVegan. The patty was developed
specifically for McDonald’s by Anamma, now Orkla
foods, a niche food company from southern Sweden, and
at just 25 Swedish Krona, (that’s $2.75) it’s a bit of a bargain. That yummy looking sauce? It’s got vegan McFeast
sauce in it, and ketchup. So apparently when this
was developed in 2017, what gives it its really,
really quite vibrant red color is the soy protein. It’s mixed with tomato powder, onions, and peppers. So what you’re expecting
from here is quite like a juicy soy protein burger but with quite a strong vegetable
taste to it as well. I think what really helps is
it’s got pickle in it as well. The pickle and the burger
go together really nicely. It’s got some ketchup in there. You can see that it’s got some onions. Yep, quite a bit of pickle actually. It’s not really, really
flavorsome, it just tastes like quite a good standard veggie
burger made of soy protein. It certainly looks very, very impressive. I really like the color of it. The McVegan: probably wasn’t worth coming all the way to Stockholm for. I can understand why people
get really crazy about this, it’s a cool thing on the menu. It’s probably just them
trying to keep up with other really popular
burger chains in Sweden that offer really good
vegetarian/vegan menus. The mayo’s good; best thing
on the menu in my opinion is the garlic dipping sauce. A nice little pot of garlic mayo heaven.

Recipe

Ingredients

Shortbread Layer
150g brazil nuts
150ml mild olive oil
150g golden caster sugar
100g demerara sugar
¼ tsp of salt
200g plain flour
100g semolina

Caramel Layer
2 cans of evaporated coconut milk
250g golden caster sugar
100ml golden syrup
125g coconut oil
pinch of salt

200g 70% cocoa solid dark chocolate

Method

Heat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark four and use a splash of olive oil to grease a square baking tin 20x20cm in size.

Blitz the brazil nuts in a food processor until they start to form a paste. Add the oil and blitz again until completely smooth. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the food processor and blitz again.

Put the sugars, salt, flour and semolina into a bowl mix well. Add to the food processor and pulse, the mixture should form a moist crumb the colour of sand that sticks when pressed together.

Press into the tin, prick all over with a fork and bake for about 25-30 minutes, until golden and crisp. Allow to cool.

Put all the ingredients for the caramel in to a heavy-based pan, and heat gently, stirring to melt the coconut. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally and continue to simmer for about 15-20 minutes, until reduced by about half and thick and fudgey. Pour over the shortbread
and smooth with a palette knife. Set aside and allow to set.

Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water spread evenly over the set caramel. Leave until solid, then turn out and cut into squares.

Creating Vegan Businesses With Purpose | Loui Blake

[UltraVid id=103 ]Hello firstly disclaimer I didn’t consciously coordinate my outfit with the slides so yeah so am essentially what I’m going to talk about is to provide a little bit of background for context and to try and offer some actionable advice if you like for the last 12 years of having my own business many many downs and a few ups to talk about I believe that if tomorrow the demand for animal products goes away companies will stop using animals in those products I also believe that big business in capitalism isn’t necessarily bad it’s just unconscious and as a result we need more entrepreneurs in this space but as entrepreneurs we have an obligation to be transparent and drink to paint a true picture of what actually the way actually takes to allow people to make an informed decision as to whether it’s a lifestyle they want to lead and I also believe the next slide should give them where everyone a little bit of a laugh that was me age 16 and at 16 I I wasn’t very good at school and I didn’t really like being told what to do how that would then play out in terms of working life years I realized very early on that I didn’t want to work for anyone else and that would render me basically unemployable what also happened at that time was pretty much a life-changing event in that I’d started coaching football because I was so passionate about football but I was also aware that I wasn’t good enough to play professionally but one of my friends I grew up with was killed in an incident and I was standing next to him and it kind of put this just flipped everything I thought I knew and it brought this real realization that life is so short and that I didn’t wanna wake up every day and do something that was meaningless so that I didn’t care about so as a result of that I threw myself into football and that summer I worked every single day a football camp getting there early setting the goals up tying kids laces picking pounds up anything they would let me do completely unpaid and in the evenings I go and watch the more experience coaches coach for a year I didn’t I did I left all the stuff that I should have been doing running around causing trouble and I really just focused on learning how to be a coach at the same time at 16 I set up my first little business which was coaching kids football privately and I used the money to fund my qualifications and over the next two years I passed the as many courses I could get on and I became the youngest person in the country to pass away for coaching license at 18 I don’t know how much you guys know about football but there’s not many full-time what jobs in football and you can’t really make any money out of it or so I was told so I looked to America and there’s so much money in football there that I took a job in New York and I went off by myself at 18 and in the state’s obviously the drinking age is 21 and I didn’t know anybody so I literally spent a year coaching football in the daytime see my mates on Facebook back here being out and being drunk and in the evenings are going watch the more experienced coaches after year of that I went to Mexico and Mexico City was Dennis that is a very dangerous place so I couldn’t even go out there really and I instead coached football during the day worked on it at night and I started looking really into personal development and I read a book called the master key system which effectively talks about how you can visualize an end product and reverse-engineer it in your mind and if you go back to it every day you can manifest it in your life and what I thought I wanted to do at that point was to move back to Norwich where I was from and open a kid’s football academy and every I didn’t have any money I didn’t have any savings I didn’t my family didn’t particularly have the money to support it but every day I would wake up and I would visualize this Football Academy got to got to 20 and decided to move back and just try and make it happen I’m having two months I’d managed to set one up on a subscription-based model that I’d learn but what I didn’t realize was that cash flow is so important and it was running out of money very quickly and I couldn’t afford to pay myself so M I started I found there was a nightclub in Norwich that after seeing all the nightlife in New York and in London everywhere no one was doing that kind of nightlife in Norwich but was a lot of young people that were bored so I would negotiate with a club give me their quietest night let me take the door money and they could take the bar money I developed this brand that I thought was aspirational that looked called him to tie people in and the first week 800 people turn up and pay five pounds for I’m on to something here so that allowed me to support the grow for the football academy it also led into doing events in other cities and I was able to grow that events business to the point where I was able to buy a nightclub when I got so I got to 21 nearly 22 had a nightclub an events company in a football academy but the problem was that I built it on such shaky foundations and it was all what started being about purpose and helping kids learn football and putting the events on the people that were bored became all about money and rather than reinvestment and my businesses I put a Rolex I’ve got a Mercedes I bought the most expensive apartment I could find and it became very material focused and I guess I’ve got a little bit lost like the big companies I mentioned where I started valuing profit over purpose and that’s what I believe is happening at the moment so what want to talk about today is what the model that I developed for myself to revert back to if ever I caught myself doing that again and I did and I’ll come on to it in a moment so and then good analogy to think about in terms of purpose and profit is red blood cells so your body has to produce red blood cells to survive but you don’t exist just to produce red blood cells and that’s like a business you have to produce profit to survive and spread your message but that’s not the only reason you exist and if that’s the case it won’t last very long so how so how do you set that up so what happens after that is when I said about bad foundations my business partner and I had different ambitions I wanted to go to London and grow and events company there at the same time because I was trying to run free businesses at once who have no knowledge and how to do so the Football Academy partner and pulled that business from under me and the lease on the nightclub ran out and all of a sudden from having all this success or what I thought was success at the time I was back to square one so I moved to London start a new events company got a new business partner ended up buying another nightclub got to the point where we had events in 10 cities all over the country and again bad foundations back to square one I’ll talk about what happened after that in a moment but I basically developed this model that would allow me at any point to come back to and get myself sorted again and get back on that on on the right path so three parts I want to talk about entrepreneurship business and how that’s applicable to a vegan vegan environment so entrepreneur and it’s one of those terms now as getting is getting thrown around and it’s almost glamorized but in those early days of tines kid shoelaces and sweeping sick off the club floor etc it wasn’t very glamorous to me I believe there’s three things you need to consider if you’d like to be an entrepreneur it’s not this trust me it doesn’t make you happy first is what you’d passionate about will you really care about because ultimately like I realized at a young age you need to have something you want to wake up to every day I feel excited about going to it can be a passion within a passion so it could be you could be really passionate about veganism but you could also love food for example as we heard grace say earlier so writing down what you need uniquely passionate about what you uniquely skill that so if you’re not sure ask the five people closest to you what did they think you’re good at and it really helps to put this into words and actually write a list so what are my skill dating skills can change and develop over time the skills I have now a difference in the skills I had when I was younger but they can compound over time in that I was talking in front of groups of parents at 20 introducing football academies so I feel a little bit more comfortable doing it now so it’s amazing how those skills can come back around and then what are my assets and you may say I don’t have any well we all have time as a 16 year old I had loads of time so I was happy to go in tie shoelaces and pick up combs to learn the craft when you have a list of each of these things you can look at what occurs at the it but what occurs at the intersection and you’ll be surprised what you find and Hammett you can create businesses roll and jobs around the intersection of those things it may be like Scott said alongside a job you may be really passionate about vegan food a fantastic writer with access to a laptop internet sometime in the evenings you start a food blog reviewing reviewing huge food on the side for example little tip is to work harder on yourself in any business something that I wasn’t really conscious of at the time but what I find now really helps me is the first hour of every day is personal development it’s meditation stretching reading making lists you have to work hard on yourself the business may disappear but you are still there you are the driving force behind it one thing I’ll say well this is the work you’re doing yourself compounds over time so if you invest time of yourself from young age you reap the benefits of that throughout your life rather than waiting so you have some time your later or you’re finished particular projects or whatever so really think about working hard on yourself business I’ve got a kind of a simple definition of a business because I think people really over complicate it and the definition is business is creative solutions to problems in a way that’s win-win that’s a profit and I’m gonna explain each little part of that for those of the thinking of starting a business firstly though there is no rules there are absolutely no rules my current business didn’t exist ten years ago therefore the the employment model of of what I should do or as told I should do for my business a nine-to-five on set wages runnin sense advised doesn’t work in a social media agency what happens when we need to reply to an inbox message at 10 p.m. and the person finished work at 5 is that person motivated by being paid the same as somebody else in the team who does double the work so to get the rules if you look at the companies they’re innovating and bringing about change at the moment they don’t have any experience in that industry don’t get me wrong there are there are air ways of doing things that have proven to be work but don’t be scared if you don’t know the industry uber didn’t know anything about taxis Airbnb didn’t know anything about hotels so don’t worry if you don’t particularly know the industry so the three points so creative solution is a problem when it’s a problem when you think problems I advise you to think about it in three stages who mr. market segment that has the problem secondly how is that is the problem already being solved and identify how it’s being solved is it a problem that many people have and will it still be a problem in three years time now in veganism we’re fortunate we have so many problems so you’ve got loads to pick from here secondly what is your point of difference what’s your differentiating value proposition what’s your USP what makes your products stand out so think about how you can maybe deliver it in a unique way how you can come up with a brand that is uniquely positioned and then what is the product you’d be amazed how many people are so purposeful in their business and they really solving a problem they’ve got a really great point of difference that products crap so spend time thinking about what the product is and test it produce small volumes work with one person do it for free so many people want to start a business and start earning money from day one they didn’t do that graph they didn’t put in the time doing it for free if you want to you want to be a want to be a PR agent um experience it come and do it for someone put the time in it’s not as simple as starting a business creating a business putting it out there making money quitting your job life’s brilliant it doesn’t work like that so when I say win-win what do I mean traditional model for business is that you look after certain groups first in the 80s we have this this layoff thing where we’d essentially try and balance the books by prioritizing shareholder value and prioritizing me to the shareholders over the people that actually work in the business I was taught in the first nightclub I had that we should pay suppliers right at the last minute and that would help our cash flow but then if the supply is getting paid late when I need the delivery on a Saturday they’re not going to help me out so what I suggest is you look at these these free sectors and you can you bring them all together under one central purpose okay so what that means is then this is from the get-go if your priority is profit you will categorize who’s and valuable than itch you would do things that on a gun in line with your values when the when the sensor focus is purpose and everyone’s bought into the same purpose if your suppliers working with you because they believe what you believe they will go out of their way to support you if your shareholders really believe what you believe when you were supposed to make but make X amount of money on six months in but you haven’t you revert back to the purpose and they’re more prepared to help you because they believe what you’re trying to do we retired in emotionally if you work with the community in the environment the community become advocates of your product the local environment if you have been conscious of how the impacts of your business affects the local environment people see this and they will respond so it’s about using using the purpose to drive the business have everyone brought into a central purpose as opposed to purely existing for money last bit is profit and this is one thing that I always struggle with the start we because I was terrible at planning anything free things to consider a profit if you have investors communication is key do not try and hide things from them they’re there to help you and support you have you got a support network is that people that you have can have as mentors or is there it’s a thing two things you can turn to to give you information that can help you and planning can you come up with a best case solution something and then a lowest a low outcome are you prepared for that do you have it and do you have adequate cash flow do you have backup suppliers do you have that you have plans in place if things go wrong so really planning your business out properly and getting it done before you go to market or do anything this is so so true so this has been for me many times in my life is sitting in Mexico trying to draw up a business plan and I didn’t study business I got I think I got you you and economics at school and then trying to see that I would have the one of the largest football academies in the East of England with 250 players signed with but undoable thinking I’d own a nightclub when I was 22 was beyond me talking the demon in 2d when I first met them and I said where’d you want to go with this and I think I threw out going to America and Damien was like what and then over time believed in it and now it’s happened so think about doing the undoable because a lot of people aim average if I can just get to that I’ll be happy I just get so that I’d be happy nobody’s hitting for this so if you hit him for that you actually have more of a chance in my opinion and then veganism and how does it apply to veganism so I would suggest you that there’s essentially vegan businesses want to create a utopia when I put in Adobe a stock image search this is the image came not for utopia so that’s why that’s there but essentially the purpose that we have for our business that underlying purposes that we want to create a vegan world to want to create a world where people aren’t using animals as commodities where people are being conscious of the impacts their choices have on the environment on other people and on their health so with that underlying purpose I would suggest you there’s three main problems that we need to solve the first is quality or taste so when you thinking about launching a product are you solving the quality or the taste problem how are you doing it again referring back to the first the first two the first two elements of the talk are you solving the convenience element so the convenience element maybe when you’re in your lunch when someone’s on the lunch break and they nip into the local boots and there’s one falafel sandwich left and it’s all soggy but there’s 20 meat options I would suggested there’s an equal amount of vegan options most people would choose the vegan option because it just looks better and cost the problem we have at the moment is vegan companies without investment that startups cannot produce the quantity to allow the unit costs that come down to pass that discount on to the consumer and therefore vegan products are essentially more expensive than their counterparts that use animal products so how can you address the cost issue is there a way that you can to convey that you can launch products into an existing market that allows you to compete the products that the forces are them products to be driven down in cost and the competition basis and what what this all ties into is awareness so the more products that enter the market the more awareness there is you go into a supermarket and there’s a whole lyall for the vegan food people will take notice it’s putting it in front of people you guys probably not mean the way I made my parents go via my brother’s go vegan was I was literally putting food on the table every day but I try to s try this try this it’s awareness the more you expose or something the more you start to take notice so we need to if solving any of these issues we’re all contributing to the awareness of veganism and that’s one of the most important things if your business fails if it flops doesn’t matter the processes you work on yourself and becoming the driving force that can then start something else I think over that time sorry the last bits final initiative in the niche so veganism is no longer a niche it’s no longer good enough to start a vegan brands put some green on it and say we now sell vegan products come and buy it think about the niche that you’re addressing within that the world is so big and we’re all online and there’s so many people but there’s gonna be someone that’s interested in what you are interested in and what you’re really passionate about so don’t be scared of the niche being too small and it comes down to I mean this is probably 12 years in this is yeah this is 12 years in for me and my concept of success for the first eleven was how much money can I make and the problem of that is money is infinite when is a bi-product money is a you know a byproduct of success but what how do you define success for you if everyone it’s different a successful entrepreneur we see in magazines is someone with private jets and watches but what if that person wakes up every day and hates their life hates what we’re doing doesn’t contribute anything is that person successful what about the person that runs a small business that gives access to amazing foods and lots of people and they’ve helped people lead a healthier lifestyle diet but maybe doesn’t make that much money I’d argue that they’re more successful so my measure of success now is waking up every day and being inspired being passionate and really loving what I’m doing even though the money’s less and trust me as a by-product the money will come because even you’re passionate about what you’re doing you want to spread it to more people and you’ll find a way to make that happen what I would say as well is there there’s kind of an ego around and I had a massive ego around it when I when I would have businesses before and it was all about I want to look like I’m successful or I was motivated by the wrong things what veganism showed me was I need to be more conscious of how my actions every day are having an impact on other people and on the world around me and rather than just appeasing myself on my own once my own needs how can I create something that helps other people so where that’s kind of led to today after the second nightclub failing I found myself sleep on the floor an office in Brighton which is ironic because I think we had a quite an expensive car outside and expensive clothes but no money to buy a hotel I came back to doing what I knew and that was nightclubs start the recruitment company after meeting somebody in a bar and have an idea started working in social media basically got myself to burnout level where I was doing 16 hours a day getting really sick and they discovered veganism turned overnight energy levels went through the roof reverted back to my my little model and find him what I wanted to do and what came out of it was that I was all of the businesses are grown I’ve done off the back of social media that’s why new communications branding the assets that I had was access to lots of contacts that I’ve made over time and the ability to go out and meet people and etc and the new passion was veganism and helping change the perception of what veganism was so in that time I decided to set up a church that gradually started changing my social media agency to work with vegan brands and today I can say that we only work with vegan companies ethical companies I’ve left a hell of a lot of money on the table to to work with other companies but it’s about doing what you believe in and I believe that in time it will pay dividends we do work with companies that aren’t vegan to have vegan products because again I believe big business is a tool to leverage spring the message further a restaurant with 100 a restaurant claimed 100 restaurants is in a position where they can spread the message quicker than a start-up restaurant so I’m happy to work with them but ultimately end goal is to help vegan businesses so if you’re thinking about starting a business I would encourage you to look at those steps they’ve really helped me step up just get up and do it and if it fails it really doesn’t matter there’s no ego loss there’s there’s there’s no problem fail again fail again fail again I watch an interview once and this is what stayed in my mind and maybe it’s caused me to be a little too blase about failing but there was three entrepreneurs and they were all highly successful both in terms of revenue and what they were doing and when asked between them the average number of businesses they had before they were successful the answer was 18 I’m prepared to myself to get to that number and keep going because ultimately it’s what you do every day it’s being present throughout it and during the process it’s not a destination money’s not a destination it’s the process of waking up every day and loving what you do so where that leads me to now is I have a restaurant opening and then four weeks it’s free floors cafe restaurant and bar it’s fully vegan and that is me chucking everything I have into the pot and hoping praying and making it work so I encourage you to step up if you have an idea ask the help surround yourself with people that know what they’re doing and go for it if you want to connect with me that’s my information they’re also around and a thank you Damian and Judy for giving the opportunity because they actually dragged me kicking and screaming onto the stage of evolution a couple of years ago I was petrified of doing it and since then it’s opened a lot of doors for me in terms of speaking so I really appreciate it so thank you you you

Why I’m a Vegan and A Christian

[UltraVid id=66 ]hi everyone and today I wanted to talk to you all about Christianity and veganism and why I’m a Christian and a vegan and why I think that as a Christian being also conscious about the environment and being stewards is like really really important and so I’ve had lots of questions in the past like also you’re Christian you’re vegan like why would you be vegan when Jesus ate fish and this and the other and so I was like okay I’m gonna do a video on it so here is the my video okay so first of all at the very very beginning of creation it says in Genesis that God gave Adam and Eve when he made them in the Garden of Eden every every plant every seed-bearing tree and apart from one and I don’t was told to like tender lands and be a steward and look after look after the beautiful creation and so that was like God’s original plan for humans and to have like a relationship with with humans with Adam and Eve and for everything to be in unity and happy and everything going well and all lovely and beautiful and pretty and him to not actually eat animals that wasn’t part of it they actually in Eden had animals as companions in fact Adam was given animals first before he was given Eve to like look after so I don’t have talked the animals and I cared for them but long story but basically the animals didn’t fulfill him enough and so God decided to make him a woman and a female so then there was Adam and Eve in the garden and they all you know like happy living with the animals and eating all the lovely free I know I can talk more about about that in another video but basically we the whole in there and got in Eden cause probably plan they were basically fruitarians which is like in the perfect world it was just like the perfect site of cycle of the tree blooms fruit and it has seeds inside so obviously they would eat the fruit and the seeds have passed through and as they walk around the earth they pick them out and they grow lovely new trees in all these different vacations it’s a quite a lovely picture really but yeah unfortunately when ad when Adam and Eve got tempted by the tree of temptation and the serpent they ate the fruit from the tree they shouldn’t be eating from and it was the tree of knowledge of good and evil and so because they disobeyed God that meant that bad things came into the world and one of the one of the things that Bahamian to the world was death and that is the thing that we you know we all know happens decay in the cycle of life now happens that way and as you go through Genesis you realized that actually God in this fallen world gave humans animals to eat then so he was like to know we’re okay on the ark well when they landed back safely after the flood subsided like I now give you animals to eat as food and so they ate animals from that point onwards so yeah originally God’s perfect plan it was for us to eat plants but the survival reasons animals do actually sustain as this figure too which is great for our survival of the species right however now for a lot of people in society where there’s an option like and all the scientifically things have done is that basically that we can survive really well for a lot of people really well on vegan diets right um in different circumstances people were different with different types of foods but majority of the time more plants are good in our you know and we should be um one of the things going back to quickly about that stewardship thing is that do you think we’re being a good steward of this world supporting industries that allow these terrible things to happen to animals so the industrial farming intensive hunting baby carves away from cows and like plucking feathers out of chickens alive and grinding up little baby chicks is that morally does not morally sit well with us and that’s what you’ve got a reassertion of your personal what you’re spending our money on what we spend our money on it’s like a vote for what we believe in and if what wants us to be good stewards of the world we do the best we can but if we do know that that thing that we do purchase is contributing to the devastation of our world then that would be a biggest step to really just consciously make a decision to think well if there is a vegan option there is a plant-based option there’s a better option there is even like a better option if you still want to eat me is to go for the organic because it’s just not as damaging to the world and to the harmful animal or going for the free-range like organic eggs instead of the normal eggs there are little baby steps you can take towards that but obviously when you go to your restaurant tend to not do obviously the good quality stuff that doesn’t involve all the terrible things but that’s something to think about being a steward what are the questions obviously that comes up is like oh well Jesus came down and ate meat fish these things he fed the 5000 with the fish and the bread that’s what story has always said to me like all of us say that again it’s fine I’m like well obviously a few things I would say to that is number one the reason he did that was not to prove that he could eat me another way here the reason he did it was for to display his powers of what he was and who he was and to really just show that he cared and came to provide for people because he can provide things and there was so that was completely different moral of the story but the fact that he did use the fish was show that whatever people had at the time he was utilizing that rather than like judging them on that because we shouldn’t be judging people on their food based things we should just be you know pointing each other in good directions and better directions as we see but um obviously the practices back in that time but nowhere near as destructive as what they are now like now in the oceans with the fish they have humongous big trailers and they just basically trawl up gather in with these humongous Nets everything that exists in their field throw back things that they don’t want that they can’t get money from and then just sell the rest of the things and that is that a really good method of doing things that’s valuing our lovely earth and planet and things probably not so where we spend our money you’ve got a thing like mmm even though that’s cheaper is it worth it to allow that to happen and I know it’s a really tough one but then it’s kind of like there are alternatives so looking into those is a really good idea um but yeah I just want to say like as as as a Christian I think it’s really morally like a really great thing to really consciously look into our food because our food is the most most damaging thing to the world bonused it literally exceeds you can look at the science it exceeds why even though transport is really bad it exceeds transport even and obviously there’s loads of different things we can assess in our lifestyle but food is a really big thing and it’s one thing that we can take as a step towards that right direction like I know like close exploitation slave exploitation even just one thing about you know when we are supporting that industry not only are we supporting the workers who are in that industry which is terrible the things that they have to do they have to actually be in that environment and kill animals and as workers they have to chop it all up in things and I wouldn’t want anyone to be in that job and even the fact that they to grow huge huge fields full of grain to feed cities to feed these cows and things up these cows and pigs up with all this will this grain which could have been growing these fields could have been grown to feed populations it could feed so many more people so we’re even kind of when we are purchasing our high volumes of meat mmm eggs and cheese in that we are really contributing to you unfortunately like poverty in the world because we’re not utilizing our land resources in an effective efficient way which we should really be doing our stewards respecting our our world so yeah that’s just a few little things I wanted to mention and I hate that it’s kind of giving me some insight into Christianity and veganism plant-based eating and just remember it like you don’t have to go the full way if you want to go vegan there she just it’s everyday isn’t every choice every meal isn’t every choice you know just add in some extra vegetables into your meal I have some extra beans as well as that on the sides and then ease it out it’s fine but if there is an option to have a vegan one just go for a vegan meal a day at least that’s baby stuff in the right direction so everyone’s on the journey and I really respect everyone on their journey say yeah I hope you enjoyed that I am doing Christian mentoring so if you are interested in signing up to that the forum will be down below it’s great to have like a group to mentor that’s so much fun and we really just encourage each other on our journeys and put your children aren’t Direction chair like pretty interesting things amount so yeah I hoped I was having a lovely day and I will speak to you in my next video leave me a comment and a like bye
