Y not cease fishing in the Gulf of Mexico?

Ever wonder what vegans eat? Well, we eat A LOT of things 🙂  Here’s just a sample of what my wonderful vegan BF made for dinner last night …

In other random thoughts, we were talking about the oil spill again last night and about the moratorium on deep water drilling, which can be debated whether that is a good thing or not, but … Why hasn’t anyone suggested a MORATORIUM ON FISHING???!!!  Let the species recover for g-d’s sake.. why has this not occurred to anyone? We don’t dare rob people of their precious seafood dinner, but we’ll gladly rob the life of innocents for our palate. Talk about addiction (as in, addiction to fossil fuels), this one is so deep under wraps that no one dare speak of it. Wake up people. Fish are going to be gone from your waters in a few decades at this rate and then you will HAVE TO give up eating them.

world peace diet reviewed & renewed

In which I say a lil about this phenomenal book, The World Peace Diet by Dr. Will Tuttle.

Order online at
Kitten clip at the end.

*** from a review by Eve Spencer, Vegan Voice Magazine **
“The World Peace Diet is not a diet in the sense of a fad diet to lose weight, but the author illustrates clearly how the social, psychological and spiritual consequences of our meals “ripple through all aspects of our lives.”

“The book is systematically developed to reveal the connection between what we daily put on our plates, and peace in the world and in our lives. Some of the chapters covered include the power of food, the herding culture, the nature of intelligence, domination of the feminine, the metaphysics of food, science and religion, profiting from destruction, the journey of transformation, and in the final chapter—living the revolution—is ‘the last days of eating animal.'” …

Not my best, but at least it’s very, um, candid 🙂

Global Vegan Waffle Party Comes to Pontiac May 29

Pontiac, May 21, 2010 – A truly unique get-together will be happening in downtown Pontiac on Memorial Day Weekend. What started 3 years ago in Pittsburg as a day of awareness and fun for vegan issues, has morphed into a global movement of inspired foodies sharing the deliciousness & variety of waffles.
“Some people ask me ‘How can waffles be vegan [no eggs or dairy]?” said organizer and long-time vegan Aletha Asay of Pontiac. (vegan for 3 years, and vegetarian for 3 years before that)  “It’s easy. You just replace some of the ingredients.” But attendees won’t have to worry about making their own waffles. Asay and volunteers will be dishing up the eats. The complete all-you can eat vegan waffle bar for $10 starts at 6:30 p.m. at 48 N. Saginaw St in Pontiac (Workfly, across from Bo’s).
Included is a live DJ, film screening of award-winning documentary “The Witness” ( and an opportunity to learn more about local animal charity Tail Waggers USA. Extra monies from the event will be donated to Tail Waggers’ Spay and Neuter program.
The purpose of Vegan Waffle Party is to ‘bring people together and raise awareness about serious issues in a fun, lighthearted, delicious, and non-threatening way,’ according to “I hope that people will come away having learned some truth about animal issues and be empowered to make more compassionate choices,” Asay added.

For more information or to RSVP, search Waffle Party on Facebook.
