More About Me

Reasons why I prefer to eat vegetarian or vegan:

Because the 12 principles--particularly honesty, integrity, humility, and mindfulness--which I try to 'practice in all my affairs' are best fulfilled with the vegan lifestyle. 'Courage' and 'brotherly love' also have few other opportunities for expression--as either practically and/or profoundly--as inherent in food choice.

I joined HappyCow Members Community because:

Eric was really cool when I met him at Bob Linden's Earthfest in 2010 (?) in the park across the street from Au Lac...... He even gave me an awesome pink happy cow shirt; I nearly never wear pink, but that top is some of my friends' favorite 'vegan' shirt. ;)

Here are some places I've been that I liked... and places that I would like to visit one day:

Gnome Cafe in Charleston, South Carolina. (I'm horrified to realize I posted their delicious food all over my Instagram account and never Happy Cow reviewed them.)

Some of my favorite veg*n foods include:

All hail kale! And Grace's Not-Mac-Not-Cheese (sometimes With Green Things and/or Red Bits) when I have access to a kitchen.

Here are some books, movies, magazines, and my favorites that I would recommend to other HappyCow members:

The World Peace Diet: this book informed and inspired me. It has an amazing bibliography, it is very well written. It touches both the heart and mind. Ending my participation in animal exploitation for food--motivated by the ideas in Tuttle's book--naturally led me to withdraw my support of ALL forms of using sentient, non-human beings.

It's very disappointing that some nefarious person misrepresented Rooted as becoming a fully vegan establishment.
I called the restaurant a few weeks ago (after they supposedly went vegan by removing honey) and the man who answered the phone laboriously explained all the "accommodations" they "give" to the bees to make it "humane" and "sustainable" to take honey.... Giving them the benefit of the doubt--that perhaps my phone call was unclear--I came for lunch today. The woman at the counter confirms honey is on the menu, in some of the juices, and the to-go products in the case.
Isn't it enough that the bees pollinate the plants? Isn't that the vitally important "service" they "provide" to humanity--to allow us to grow food? Can't we "let" them keep the food they make for themselves?
