Why Vegan?

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

As we approach the end of another calender year, especially one in which so many environmental disasters have occurred, both “natural” and man-made, and head into the infamous 2012, it seems appropriate to remind ourselves, or more likely our friends and family, why we choose to be vegan.

Powerful, don’t you think? (Hit Like or Tweet below to share.)

May the New Year find you and yours happy and healthy. :)

Hug A Vegetarian Day 2011

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Now here’s a holiday we can all get behind. According to PETA (maybe they invented it – anyone know?), today, September 30th is this year’s “Hug A Vegetarian Day!” You know what to do…

Get out there and share your veggie pride!

Here’s the PETA Hug A Vegetarian Day site for the occasion. Rather adorable, don’t you think?

Anyway, here’s wishing you a great day of fantastic, cruelty-free dining and friendship. Sending you a *virtual hug* :)

Veggie Love: PETA’s Banned Super Bowl Ad

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, I bring you the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)’s infamous and ill-fated Veggie Love spot, intended to run during Super Bowl XLV (2011) on NBC.

Looks like the same one they tried to run a couple years ago, and again the network banned it, reasoning the advertisement “depicts a level of sexuality exceeding our standards.” I don’t know, doesn’t seem any worse than the bikini beer ads.

“Veggie Love”: PETA’s Banned Super Bowl Ad

At least they saved themselves the gazillion dollars it would have cost to have their 30 televised seconds. And they still got a ton of publicity from the controversy and people sharing it online.

Here’s another banned PETA commercial from Thanksgiving 2009:

What do you think of these attempts? Three cheers or three jeers?

Bill Clinton Goes Vegan – Kinda

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

First it was Mike Tyson, now (ex-)President and former fast food junkie Bill Clinton has also adopted a plant-based diet.

He says he was motivated by his daughter Chelsea’s wedding (incidentally, already a vegan for some time), his desire to stay healthy to be around for future grandchildren, and recurring blockages following his stent surgery.

The “kinda” in the title is because he does mention eating fish on occasion, so if we had to choose a label, I guess it’d be pescatarian. But, plant-based is always a safe bet.

Anyway, let’s hope he sticks with it as thoroughly as has Tyson. And, if he needs more reasons he should keep going with his “experiment”, this article‘s top 10 gave me a chuckle. ;)

Bill Clinton credits the following individuals for educating and inspiring him to eat a healthy, plant-based diet.

Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Dr. Dean Ornish,
and T. Colin Campbell’s China Study
