Nothing makes me happier than saving animals ๐Ÿ’—

One way I feel helps to save our animal friends is when someone influential goes vegan. The awareness they are able to spread through their social media can have a massive positive impact.

Tash Oakley has recently gone vegan and WOW is she passionate! With a huge following of 1.9 million on her instagram sheโ€™s dropping some powerful truth bombs, sharing lots of love for her new vegan lifestyle and even encouraging others to watch Cowspiracy.

โ€œEvery living creature deserves love and respect ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿท๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ“๐Ÿณ Treat others, including animals, as you would wish to be treated"

โ€œOfficially on a Vegan diet in respect for my own body, all animals and for future generations โ™ฅ๏ธ I also LOVE vegetables and it's so easy to cook and buy delicious vegan recipes these days that it's a no brainer#govegan #vegan โ€œ

โ€œAlso if you haven't watched "Cowspiracy" watch it for me, it's important to educate yourself on these matters and make changes whether they are big or small. Make the right choice, not the easy one.โ€œ

Tash Oakley, we love you! Thank you so much being such a powerful voice for the animals. Congratulations on making one of the greatest decisions of your life!

Vegan Babes Making Top 5 on X Factor

We first met sisters Brooke and Tayla at the Cruelty Free Festival in Sydney 2 years ago. We instantly fell in love with their bubbly personalities and awesome vegan vibe!

Their X Factor audition has had over 23 million views on Youtube!! We have had it on repeat here at In The Soulshine so a few hundred of those would've been us...lol! No matter how many times we watch it we are constantly blown away by how talented they are!

Yeah girls!!! It's so awesome to see so many people embracing the vegan lifestyle! Never would've thought a group that made top 5 on X Factor would be vegan. It's just proof our little community is growing and growing. Makes us so damn happy :)

For when it's cold outside and you're wanting a warmer alternative to your smoothie bowl try this simple delicious Tofu Scramble recipe :)

Ingredients

SCRAMBLE

  • 8 ounces (220g) extra firm tofu
  • Olive oil
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups kale, loosely chopped

SAUCE

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric (optional)

FOR SERVING

  • Salsa
  • Cilantro
  • Hot Sauce
  • Breakfast potatoes, toast, and/or fruit

Method

  1. Pat tofu dry and roll in a clean, absorbent towel with something heavy on top, such as a cast iron skillet, for 15 minutes.
  2. While tofu is draining, prepare sauce by adding dry spices to a small bowl and adding enough water to make a pourable sauce. Set aside.
  3. Prep veggies and warm a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add 1-2 Tbsp olive oil and the onion and red pepper. Season with a pinch each salt and pepper and stir. Cook until softened - about 5 minutes.
  4. Add kale, season with a bit more salt and pepper, and cover to steam for 2 minutes. In the meantime, unwrap tofu and use a fork to crumble into bite-sized pieces.
  5. Use a spatula to move the veggies to one side of the pan and add tofu. Sautรฉ for 2 minutes, then add sauce, pouring it mostly over the tofu and a little over the veggies. Stir immediately, evenly distributing the sauce. Cook for another 5-7 minutes until tofu is slightly browned.
  6. Serve immediately with the breakfast potatoes, toast or fruit. I like to add more flavor with salsa, hot sauce and/or fresh cilantro. Serves 2.

Plants For The Win ๐Ÿ’ช ๐ŸŒฑ Why Athletes Are Turning to A vegan Diet For Power

"Following a plant-based diet can not only benefit your health and the environment, but also the animals.. I've always enjoyed friendships with animals, and once I saw some footage and read about what went on I decided to cut that out." - Peter Siddle

Yep, we feel you Peter! We absolutely LOVE when plant-powered athletes speak up about the benefits of a vegan diet. Australian cricketer Peter Siddle caught up with PETA Australia to share how turning to plants for power has changed his life.

Thank you Peter Siddle for spreading the vegan love!
