If I can go veggie (specifically, vegan), and if Earl (from the Mutts comic strip above) would like to, and if Lisa (who left the nice comment on my Farm to Fridge post below) can do it, then so can you! And what better day to begin than with Easter? Think of it as a renewal of your commitment to be more compassionate. Jesus, if you're a follower of the Christian faith, may have had the choice to sacrifice himself for the rest of humanity, but the sacrifice that humans force upon billions of other sentient beings? Unconscionable if you ask me.
I "stumbled" across your blog while looking for vegan recipes. My husband and I had been talking about going vegetarian for health reasons for quite a while now (we already hardly ate meat,just dairy), and then he mentioned going vegan. So, I was online looking for recipes when I came across your blog. After a little hesitation, I decided to watch the video. My husband walked into the room to find me sobbing in front of my computer. Then he watched the video. That was Feb 4, 2012. We haven't touched any kind of meat or dairy since. That was all it took for me. On a good note, we've both never felt better and our health improved! That's so awesome, Lisa, thank you!
Patrick McDonnell's comic strip above, by the way, can be ordered as a print and I did, Because I'm worth it, snort. The company behind that advertising slogan though? Nope, they're not worth it (they still do animal testing, or pay others to do it for them), so buy your cosmetics elsewhere. Although I do appreciate their ToxCast donation.
