French Vegan Humor

French Vegan Humor!

I just read a most unexpected comic strip in a French magazine and had to share it. First, l et me provide some context for my wanting to share it. I love my country of birth, but when it comes to animal exploitation and veganism, France must be by far one of the slowest countries […]


The Many Faces of Kindness

I had a recent conversation with a friend at a dinner about hunger in the world. When I mentioned that the Western world was very much responsible for children, let’s say in Africa, dying daily of starvation, my friend opened her eyes really big and replied “what does this have to do with me and […]

Las Vegas Vegan options

I had a few hours to kill and […]

Fresh salad spread
