My name is Cortney Palm and I am an actress and animal advocate now living in the beautiful state of Colorado. I am often asked what beauty products I use, what I eat and how often I go to the gym.
I decided that I should create a place where those questions can be answered and those who are interested can come with me on this journey of a cruelty-free lifestyle.
After watching these -recommended- documentaries like Earthlings, Unity, Forks over Knives, Cowspiracy, The Cove, and Blackfish, I have zero tolerance for animal cruelty and ignorance. Therefore, I want to share what I know and how I go about living this lifestyle.
I went vegan was due to the fact that I was now completely aware of how our animals are treated and how animal agriculture is responsible for climate change and global hunger. Also, animal protein contributes to heart disease, obsesity, and cancer. So why is it that we have all been told "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" but we continue to "fuel" our bodies with death and sickness? Fruits and veggies are the key to a happy, healthy, life.
Our animal brethren share this planet with us. They are intelligent beings and they are not ours to eat, wear, exploit, torture, hunt, nor use for entertainment. I look forward to sharing information with you and growing with you as a child of this universe where we are all equal.

Questions and Comments
We are obsessed with the notion that the body needs animal-based protein. Some people believe that we need to intake 1.5-2 or more grams of protein a day per pound of body weight, and that number is way too high. The average protein intake should be between 0.3 to 0.7 grams of protein per pound of body weight, or maximum 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight if you are a body builder, and even that depends on your cycle in your journey.

Most of us have a relative or indirect relationship with someone who has suffered from a stroke, heart attack, heart disease, or diabetes, and likewise, someone with cancer. Although such diseases are far too common nowadays, it doesn't have to be this way. (See full post)
