Day 2 – Reflections and Clarifications-by jessica

Pin It

Into day 2 now of vegan September and I’m realizing that a few things need clarification.

First – I would like to emphasize that we are not trying to sell a particular product or commercial interest, but may talk about products we are trying or information we come across as we learn what veganism is all about. any links to websites belonging to such products are not an endorsement for you to buy them, but merely supplemental information.

Second – I would like to reiterate that we have nothing against consumers of meat and other animal products. as a former meat eater, I know how tasty a hot, crispy buffalo wing is, dammit! and some people loooove a juicy steak, or a big plate of cheesy nachos.  some get very passionate about defending their right to eat these things, and that is their prerogative.  we’re not trying to pick fights with these people.  all we want to do is tell people that eating less animal products (try one animal product free meal a week, for example), can improve your health, reduce your impact on the planet, and maybe even affect the plight of animals treated poorly in the various animal product industries.  and you might even be surprised to learn that there are recipes out there that don’t use a single ounce of animal product, but are still incredibly tasty (Iwas once skeptical, too!).

Today, Bridget made some delicious tomato rosemary scones that have been one of my favourite vegan recipes we’ve come across so far.  if you would like the recipe, I posted it on my other blog, with permission of the author, of course…  jessica
