Why I Hate The Ag-Gag Bill

You’ve probably heard or seen articles discussing the Ag-Gag bills being brought up, passed, or overturned in many states throughout the US. But what exactly is it and what does it mean? Today, I’m hoping to answer some of those questions as well as let you know why I get super annoyed by it.

So ag-gag is essentially a bill that has been passed in many states throughout the US in hopes to eliminate all whistle-blowing acts in animal agriculture. This bill allows no type of recording, monitoring, or exposure (without the facility manager’s consent) of the inside of an any animal agriculture facility. Basically, anyone that attempts to expose the truth, can be criminally punished.

How-To Make Almond Milk

Recently, I’ve been making my own almond milk. After realizing how easy it was, and how much more natural it is, I am hooked. Most store bought almond milk contains thickeners, like lecithin and carrageenan (made from seaweed, that can lead to digestion problems) both are unnecessary additives. So by making my own, I get to control the ingredients, which makes me feel better about what is going into my body.

Now onto the almond milk process….it usually takes about ten minutes altogether, not including the time the almonds take to soak (overnight). So this is really easy to do in the morning before making breakfast.

First…
Soak natural (organic if you’d like) almonds in filtered water overnight, or for at least twelve hours.

Second…
Pour the almonds into a blender and add four cups of water for every one cup of almonds. I like to use the water that the almonds soaked in as part of my four cups of water.
