vegansofaustralia @freedomforfarmedrabbits fundraiser wine is 100% vegan, Australian grown and produced, and a minimum of 50% profit goes to our rescue campaign.
Available in a variety of red and white vintages, it's a subtle (and delicious!) way to spread the word about rabbits to friends, colleagues and neighbours.
Order some for Christmas and it'll be delivered to your door by the lovely people at Goodwill Wines!

vegansofaustralia On my last evening on Melbourne I got to go and collect this gorgeous girl with my friend and fellow activist, @freedomforfarmedrabbits founder, Hayley.

This is Claire, named after our favourite vet nurse who not only fosters rabbits for FFR but adopted one of our rescues as her own. Claire called us after this girl was handed into the clinic after being found wandering the streets of Melbourne. She is now safe with us and has a meeting with a potential new home next week.

We still have more rescues available on our pet rescue at http://www.petrescue.com.au/groups/10534
Please email us at info@freedomforfarmedrabbits.com if any catch your eye and you are interested in adopting them!

vegansofaustralia Another Melbourne food review ^.^ Veg out time (the St.Kilda store is now labelled as 'Veggie time')
is an all vegetarian eatery with many vegan options. They sell healthy Cheap, fast and healthy Singaporean, Malaysian, Thai, Indian and Chinese cuisine. Mainly vegan, some gluten free dishes available, meals without onion, garlic etc can be made. Their curries and stir frys are served with either brown or white rice (always brown for me!) and they have many other food options, including THE BEST dumplings (at the St.Kilda store, the Chapel street ones aren't so good) and garlic Roti bread and also soups, salads etc.

My favourite food options are any of the vegan tofu dishes, the sesame vegetables, the dumplings and the roti bread.
Stores are located at:
•366 Chapel street, South Yarra.
•63 Fitzroy street, St Kilda.

vegansofaustralia I have chosen to repost this, after editing some bits and pieces.
•The toffee sprinkles that are put on top of the toffee nut drinks are NOT vegan so ask for them without sprinkles.
•Only the classic hot chocolate is vegan, NOT the signature one.
•And the reason that regular soy milk is not vegan is because most places use the purple vitasoy calci-plus as regular soy milk which has vitamin D from lanolin, however their light soy is vitasoy barista soy milk which is vegan.

As I have previously mentioned, of course small local businesses are always better to support, but this page is here to bring attention to what is vegan in Australia and I am sick of the blatant assholes who attack me, If it wasn't for the fact I know that I actually do help so many people with this page then I would probably let your bullying get to me and just give up, but I am not going to do that so you are wasting your breath.

vegansofaustralia Another amazing food place I ate at whilst in Melbourne this time was @monkbodhidharma.

Located at rear 202 Carlisle street, Balaclava. Monk's makes some of the best coffee in melbourne, they have a choice of soy milk or their own homemade almond milk.

Pretty much everything on their menu can be made vegan or already is. When I was there I had the gluten free apple pancakes with cinnamon ice cream, whipped cashew cream, fruit and maple syrup, an iced kombucha tea and a soy latte, It was all amazing!
My friend @allysvegankitchen had the umami mushrooms and they looked so good, I reckon i'll have to give them a go next time.

I really can't wait to go back sometime soon!

vegansofaustralia The Cornish Arms is a pub located at 163A Sydney Road in Brunswick, Melbourne.
They have an entire vegan menu that includes a steak sandwich with eggplant chips (my meal of choice when I was there Saturday night), chicken parma, pizzas, a double down and many other options.
Their cookies and cream cheesecake with chocolate mousse and toffee ice cream is to die for!
Check them out if you're ever in the area

vegansofaustralia Starbucks new Christmas drinks can all be made vegan

The gingerbread frappuccino, toffee nut frappuccino, peppermint mocha frappuccino, gingerbread latte, toffee nut latte and peppermint mocha latte are all vegan if made with light soy milk and no whipped cream, as most starbucks use the purple calci-plus vitasoy as their standard soy milk which has vitamin D from lanolin.

Of course coffee shops that are small businesses are always a better option than large franchises like starbucks, but it is good to know they have vegan options, stay tuned for a post sometime very soon on what else they have that can be vegan suitable! #vegan #whatveganseat #vgansofaustralia #govegan #vegansofig #veganfoodshare #vegandrinks #frappuccino #coffee #icedcoffee #christmas #vegetarian #soy #starbucks #latte #soylatte #sydney #melbourne #vegansofmelbourne #vegansofsydney

  •   _goaskaliceee I can't believe that the Vitasoy contains lanolin. What is the point of having a soy alternative if they're going to add animal ingredients to it? 1y
  •   thevegancatlady @goaskalice_ I asked VitaSoy on twitter that exact thing and they said they're working on an alternative to lanolin...it's bullshit to even put it in an alternative for animal products. 1y
  •   _goaskaliceee Yep, it's complete bullshit. @thevegancatlady 1y
  •   marleystoast @goaskalice_ I can only assume lactose intolerant people are the target market rather than vegans. 1y
  •   ktleej @sixeightshuffle I am a vegan Starbucks employee and can confirm that employees are not allowed to use milk brought in by customers due to health and safety. Also note that the toffee but sprinkles contain milk powder and should therefore be asked to be left OFF any toffee nut drink. 1y

vegansofaustralia Last night I assisted three fellow activists in the rescuing of three piglets in Melbourne.

They were bought for a Melbourne Cup party and made to race and were then destined to end up on somebodies plate.
We suspect that they have severe sunburn or mange due to the condition of their skin. And they all currently have ear infections and worms which can now be treated.

I am very happy that these boys and girl get to live out the rest of their lives free from harm and never end up as anybodies meal

vegansofaustralia I'm so excited for this weekend! I hope you're ready for me Melbourne because I fly in tomorrow!

This an invite for my Melbourne followers to join me at the vegan bar @wholelottalovebar from 7pm Saturday to have drinks, snacks and see one of my favourite bands @deadjoeband perform.

Dead Joe is a punk rock band from my hometown of Adelaide. They are supporters of @freedomhillsanctuary, having recently been a part of a benefit gig for them.
Dead Joe have been around since 2009 and already played alongside some pretty big names such as @silverstein (also a band consisting of animal rights supporters), The Misfits, Emery, Suicidal Tendencies and others.
I can see them going quite far in the near future

So come party with me this Saturday night whilst I am in town! And then join me at World Vegan Day on Sunday (I will post more details on that shortly!). Dead Joe start at 7:15pm at Whole Lotta Love, 524 Lygon street, East Brunswick, Melbourne.

vegansofaustralia If you placed a bet today or attended the races, you supported the on track killing of this beautiful girl behind the green screen. Horse racing kills. Last year, Rose of Peace was killed on track, this year it was Verema.
Rest In Peace beautiful girls, and the thousands of others killed every year

I will not be silenced, I will speak up about the cruelty in this world until it either ceases to exist or I cease to breathe. Until every cage is empty.

  •   phoepanda @bodhlife it's so sad what happens to the horses in the racing industry my heart goes out to them :( 1y
  •   http.yourgirl.lali I guess every thing that's not riding a horse bareback with a string around its neck is "terribly cruel and Inhumane" 1y
  •   http.yourgirl.lali It's not cruel 1y
  •   bec_chloe Vegans Of Australia have a new page @australianvegans 1y
  •   patrick_mccracken_22 That's how those people make a living. You really want the owner of those horses to not make money. @vegansofaustralia Killing animals isn't sick, not being able to provide for your family is sick. People hunt and kill animals and that will never change... and yes I proudly supported her "murder" 9mon
  •   fccferreira @vegansofaustralia, can you follow me back? 9mon
  •   colemanstipsters Horse racing will never be stopped, sorry but it won't, I'm an animal lover my self, only cause the customers are there to win money, doesn't mean the jockey and trainers don't care and look after the horse's, the chances of a horse dying is a plane crashing... 7mon

vegansofaustralia At the end of the Melbourne Cup today studies show: Between 90% to 100% of the horses will have bleeding lungs. 56% will have the blood pushed up through their windpipe and, in severe cases, out their nostrils (exercise induced pulmonary haemorrhaging). Approximately 86% will be suffering from stomach ulcers, as a result of not being given the opportunity to naturally graze and level out their hydrochloric acid secretion which is produced throughout the day in grazing animals. (Race horses are kept in stables up to 22hrs a day and only fed 2-3 times daily.) Most will end up being killed for dog food at a knackery when they are no longer financially viable. The horses in the race would've been of the roughly 30% bred for the racing industry which "made it". The remaining 70% would've already been killed, simply because they couldn't run fast enough or for sustaining an injury from being physiologically pushed too young and/or too hard.

Thousands of horses are killed each year as the result of horse racing in Australia. Please reconsider your support of this industry.

Pictured here is Beau, He is one of the lucky ones. After a career in the racing industry he was headed for the knackery to be slaughtered, but now gets to live out the rest of his life at @freedomhillsanctuary.

  •   colemanstipsters Horses that don't make it into racing become pets and when a horse is no good for racing as it's career is over, why do you think you can get ex racehorses because they get sold on as pets to have a happy retirement, plus racehorses are bred for what they do, they are more agile and fit therefore do not need to graze all day etc. 7mon
  •   emmaschilt @ameliagrant5 Woah did you know any of this before? You can choose your own opinion and beliefs on horse racing, but I thought this was kind of interesting (not in a good way) because I didn't know this was the result. What's your thoughts on Melbourne cup? 4mon

Thank you to all of the vegans out there for rejecting what is considered normal by the mainstream, you inspire me on a daily basis.
Thank you for standing up for our animal friends and giving them a voice when others can't understand them.
Thank you to everybody who is not yet fully vegan but has started their journey and has that as their goal in mind, I have faith in you and am always here to help you on your path to a more compassionate lifestyle.

vegansofaustralia Chia Pods contain one full serve of Australian Grown sun ripened Chia seeds mixed with coconut milk and real fruit. Just three ingredients and no added sugar.

Chia Pods are cold processed to ensure they retain the raw nutrition, taste and color of the fruit. The banana Chia Pod has the sweetness of the real banana and the blueberry is a little bit tart from real blueberries. The coconut milk and all of the fruits are fairly traded and sustainably farmed.
Dairy free and vegan, Chia Pods are just enough for an energy breakfast, a power lunch or a pre-game fix.

Each Chia Pod provides 100% of your recommended daily intake of Omega 3 and 25% of your fiber.

Chia Pods are sold in the yogurt section of grocery and natural food retailers (I found these in Woolworths). The lid, cup and spoon are all recyclable and are made from 30% recycled content.
