400 million animals saved!

400 million animals saved!

400 million animals! I can't even begin to comprehend what 400 million animals would look like. But that's how many animals were saved from being killed for food in 2014 (in the US alone!) simply by people choosing to eat less meat!

That means millions of animals were spared from a lifetime of suffering in factory farm and having their life cut short in an industrial slaughterhouse.

Whether it be cutting down on meat or cutting it out altogether, eating less animals is a global trend that continues to grow. A new report from the U.S. says that meat consumption has been declining by around 10% every year since 2007!

Are you part of this growing movement? You're awesome. Here's a duckling.

If you're ready to jump on board the life-saving bandwagon, we've got everything you need right here.

It can be hard to feel like we're making a difference when we're flying the flag for animals, but this statistic goes to show that we're not alone, and together we're making a HUGE difference for animals.

Imagine if we could double this impact ... or even quadruple it. Well, you can! It's been found that one of the biggest barriers for people to make meat-free choices is not knowing what to eat. By spreading your love of veg food, and showing the people in your life how delicious it can be, you can help break down this barrier. And the best way to do it -- a dinner party :) What's more, by cooking for 3 friends you'll quadruple your impact for animals with that meal.

Action Alert: Host a vegan dinner party!

Here's some of my favourite dinner party recipes that always get gobbled up by guests:

Basil and rocket pesto pasta
Simple and delicious, just like all of the recipes from Mouthwatering Vegan.

tofish.jpg

Tofish and chips
Nothing like a good fry up. And it's even better when it's tofu in the fryer and fish in the sea! fish.gif (Psst! Guess what? Masterfoods Tartare Sauce is vegan.)

Mushroom hot pot
This is a fun one because guests get a ladle of broth and then make their own soup combo from the selection of veggies, herbs and tofu.

Chocolate pot
Ok I haven't actually made these yet but they're definitely on the table at my next dinner party. They look so good! (Jamie Oliver has a whole section for vegan recipes on his website.)

Happy cooking! More recipes here.
