Facts about meat consumption

  • livestock farming is one of the leading causes of deforestation as well as water pollution – 14.5% of all global greenhouse gas emissions are caused by it.
  • if every person on this planet went vegan we could stop crossing the 2 degree mark of climate change, which will probably be reached in 12 years if everything stays the same.
  • methane is over 80 times more potent at warming the planet than CO2 – so livestock farming is playing a big role in climate change.
  • ham, bacon and salami are proven to higher the risk of getting cancer significantly.
  • most soy is not consumed by vegans/vegetarians, but by meat eaters, as they (indirectly) take it in with their meat, as soy is the major food for cattle, hens and pork.
  • the average EU citizen consumes about 60 kg of soy yearly (via meat consumption), which leads to deforestation around the world, as soy for animals is mainly imported.
  • for the production of one single beef patty, you could shower for 90 minutes.
  • 100g of beef results in about 100kg of greenhouse gas
    100g of organic tofu results in about 3.5 kg of greenhouse gas
  • Veggies that pack more protein than meat:
    – Black beans (1 cup equals 50g pork or 80g chicken)
    -Almonds (1/4 cup equals 1 cup of full fat milk)
    -Buckwheat (1 cooked cup equals one cooked egg)

How to stay sane?

Hunting after adventures is my big passion for sure, but what really matters in life is health and mental well-being. I only realized this, when I lacked those essentials, so I figured out, that prevention is the key for fullfilling my best life and chasing my dreams.

In my adolescence, when I just moved out of my parents house and into my new students life in Vienna., I had a lot of troubles with adapting to all the changes and that resulted in health issues. Not only did I get sick on a monthly basis, but I kind of got a depression and just felt completely lost and worthless. So i started digging deeper, to find the cause of the change in my personality and body.

I really got into traditional chinese Medicine (TCM), which helped me reconnect with myself again. At that time I changed my sleeping routine and my eating habits. I started my day with a warm (cooked) breakfast like soup, got rid of most milk products and cut sugar and alcohol out for some time and I went to bed and got up at the same time every day. I quickly realised, that those 2 factors had such a huge impact on my well-being and so I found a way to integrate them into my day-to-day life.

At About the same time I started doing Yoga, which is now one of my professions and my biggest passion. I first got into it, because I wanted to have an athletic body, but the more I practiced, the more I realised, that yoga is so much more than just downdog and handstands.
I finally felt my Body again, I didn’t even know, that I havent felt it properly for years. All the breath work combined with really turning inwards and just being changed my view on all the things on the outside, and I reconsidered the presence and importance of a lot of things and people in my life. I got rid of everything/one that didn’t serve me anymore and kept me from growing and being my true self.

The latest discovery I made sounds really simple, but has so much power.
TAKE IT EASY. Stop stressing About Things, that are not in your power to change, and focus on the things, that you can actually change. Find trust in the universe (or however you like to call the higher power), and most important trust yourself again, as everything already is to be found within you.

 

Let’s raise #healthawareness for ourselves and for supporting the people that suffer from a lack of health.
