Providence Gay Pride ~ June 15 – 16, 2013

Hi Everyone,

I forgot to mention.

The founding father of Rhode Island VeganGreg LaFontaine asked me to work the RI Vegan Booth at the Rhode Island Gay Pride Weekend: June 15 – 16, 2013.   If any of you vegan bloggers / animal rights activists have any materials  you would like for me to display (ex., pamphlets, business cards, posters, stickers, whut-eva), please let me know.  Our mission that weekend is to spread the word about adopting a compassionate vegan lifestyle.

If you’d like to join us and participate, please let me know.




Protein Innovation Summit

OK! OK!  I know I said I wouldn’t post anything “animal related” but I just found out about the Protein Meat Innovation Summit from this source: Free From Harm and I laughed so hard I nearly peed in my Spanx!

Are these people for effing real?!?!   If you read the Free From Harm Post, the Protein Meat Innovation Summit’s intent is to promote meat flesh consumption and factory farming.  They even went so far as to defend the likes of Pink Slime!

Here is an excerpt from Free From Harm:

Not only has the meat industry been hard at work making it illegal to take photos or record video inside of their farms and slaughterhouses, they also need media sources that function as “early warning systems,” according to Gabbett (or perhaps what they really need is an impenetrable fortress to keep the consumer out of their business).

The title of Gabbett’s talk seems to suggest that the meat industry has science on their side and that their critics are just unscientific and irrational social media hacks. But for me there is something a bit more insidious and slimy than pink slime. It’s one thing to defend pink slime and portray it as the victim of unfair criticism.

It’s yet another to attempt to manipulate public opinion through well-funded public relations campaigns that seek to legitimize what is nothing short of a war on millions of animals each day trapped inside of a system they had the great misfortune of being born into it.


Just how low will the meat industry stoop to defend their immoral behavior, treating animals as commodities instead of living breathing sentient beings? Well read the post from Free From Harm and find out for yourself.

My Meals for the Week (March 11-15)

Soooooooooo, I meant to post this earlier in the week. Unfortunately, I just never got around to it.  I think part of the procrastination was due to my wondering why I should even bother to post this when…well… it’s not that interesting.  Besides, my blog really isn’t about vegan cooking, not when so many other fabulous bloggers do it so much better than I could ever dream of.   (To name a few:  Vedged Out; Dispatches from the Gypsy Roller; An Unrefined Vegan; In Vegetables We Trust; BonzaiAphrodite; and The Post Punk Kitchen.)

This particular recipe is something I go back to when I am pressed for time and need something I know I can throw together quickly without much thought.  Normally I do all of my cooking on Sundays; however, last Sunday I wasn’t able to which meant I had to cook Monday night after work. READ:  I was cooking my meals-for-the-week at 7:30 pm! Yah, not ideal but sadly this is my life.  Generally speaking,  I usually do not arrive home from work until  7:00 p.m  😦   Unless… by some freak chance I am able to leave the office before 5:30 pm. — occasionally miracles do happen, you know.       😉

Also, rather than post something about animal exploitation and ruin everyone’s weekend, I figured I would end the week with what I’ve been eating.

I give you:

Kale & Vegan Chorizo Soup with [no oil]  Sautéed Kale & Porcini Mushrooms seasoned with Shoyu and Gomasio [Full Disclosure: I always spell this word wrong!]

Soy chorizo & Kale SoupSauteed Kale & Porcini Mushroomsphoto

It’s not fancy, but it fills me up, makes me feel good and isn’t that all that really matters, at least when it pertains to food? 

Enjoy your weekend everyone!  🙂
