Why does Thich Nhat Hanh say it’s necessary to be vegan and not just vegetarian? Why are plant based diets so powerful? These two important questions will be answered with what’s playing this week on VeganFlix. You’ll also be introduced to an amazing parody for Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” song, along with a picky eater comedy skit. Sit back, relax, and enjoy these 4 incredible videos!

Why is it necessary to be vegan?

Thich Nhat Hanh is a Buddhist Zen Master. He is a global spiritual leader, an author, a poet, and a peace activist. He has written many books about mindfulness and peace. He promotes being present, living in the moment, and gives many tips on how to have a happy and simple life. Thich Nhat Hanh is also a vegan because he knows it is the most compassionate thing to do. In this video, he explains that everyone must be vegan in order to end animal suffering. He even touches on the importance of giving up cheese and milk to truly show your compassion for animals.

Reasons why Plant-Based Diets are Powerful

This is a powerful, non-judgemental and inspiring talk given by Joanne Kong. Kong is a critically-acclaimed and award-winning classical pianist and chamber musician. In this presentation, she talks about the ethical issues that surround meat consumption. Kong is simply educating people about the truth. She has been vegetarian for over 30 years and is now an ethical vegan. She is very knowledgeable about factory farming and all of the environmental and health issues that arise from meat consumption. Kong’s speech is sure to leave a powerful impact on you, whether you are already vegan, or just veg-curious.

You’ll never be able to listen to Ed Sheeran’s song the same way after listening to this vegan parody.

Boy, you know I want your love
Your love was handmade for a vegan like me
Come on now, follow my lead
How bout we share fruit on the beach
And, you could never talk too much
Wanna know more how you wanna set the animals free
Come on now, follow my lead
You may be what I need… mmmmm
