Saturday Morning Scrambled Eggs & Sausage Recipe

Dear Earthlings,

YOU CAN EAT EGGS & SAUSAGE SANS DEAD ANIMALS! There has never been more of a need to ditch meat & dairy than now. As National Geographic recently reported, the demand for meat will increase doubly by the middle of the century, and that means that the production of said meat will need to follow along with it. Sadly, this means that we will need to force more mothers into having babies, force them to live in tiny cages, have their babies taken away from them once they’re done nursing, and eventually be murdered for a measly meal. If you have never had the opportunity of opening your eyes to the reality of the meat and dairy industry, I urge you to watch this video.

Sausage, pork, ham, bacon are all euphemisms for rotting animal flesh, and really, who wants that in their mouth?? I PROMISE YOU that you can find alternatives to dead animal body parts that are just as, if not more, delicious than the “original”. There are so many amazing companies like Field Roast, Tofurky, and Lightlife that have perfected meat alternatives and their products are readily available at local retailers.

Eggs are chicken periods. Not like punctuation periods. Bloody, hormonal, slimy menstrual periods. I used to think that it was okay to eat eggs until I found the devastating harm in how they get to my plate. Firstly, mother hens (90% of them) spend their entire lives in battery cages – no larger than a sheet of paper – often with 2 other hens. Their beaks are burned off without pain medication to prevent hurting their cage-mates; then they sit in the dark, dusty, and smelly factories pumping out unnatural amounts of eggs until they are “used up”. When that happens, they are driven to a painful death, first being scalded in boiling water, hung by their feet, and then get their heads cut off. These are just the mother hens.

Once the fertilized eggs are hatched, the factory determines the sex of the chick. Female chicks are thrown into the vicious cycle of egg-laying, and male chicks are thrown ALIVE into a grinder or into a plastic bag to suffocate. Please watch the video below if you want to know how your food is made.

If you’ve ever seen the miracle of childbirth, or experienced the love of a child, you will know that all a child wants is to be warm, loved, fed, and comfortable. I cannot imagine the fear and anxiety these poor animals feel every single day of their lives.  I hate to be that vegan girl, but I am doing it for the benefit of you, our planet, and all of these precious, innocent creatures. Please give some thought to what you are going to eat before you create the demand for it. 

AND NOW FOR THE GOOD STUFFS

INGREDIENTS

EGGS
1 block Non-GMO Extra Firm Tofu
2 tsp Turmeric
dash Chili Powder
Salt & Pepper to taste

4 Organic Baby Bella Mushrooms, sliced
3/4 Organic Green Bell Pepper, diced

FRESHIES
1/2 Organic Avocado, cubed
1 slice Organic Red Onion, diced

2 – Crumble the tofu using your fingers. I like to leave some larger pieces so that when I’m “scrambling” them in the pan they don’t get too small. Plus, it makes them look more like eggs :)

3 – Slice & dice your veggies.

4 – In a medium pan on medium-high heat, add a sprinkle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) and your tofu crumbles. Add Turmeric, stir it up, and watch your tofu turn into eggggs! You can let these cook for a while to remove the moisture and allow them to get golden on all sides. Stir often while you are stirring your veggies (see next step).

5 – In a large pan on medium-high heat, add a drizzle of EVOO and your yellow onion & green peppers. Sautée ingredients until they start to brown, then add mushrooms & garlic and lower to medium heat.

6 – Add sausage links to the veggie pan and brown on 4 sides.

7 – Dish up and add the freshies to your plate.  Enjoy your cruelty-free sausage and eggs! <3
