vegan MoFo: happy hump day!

Happy Vegan MoFo Hump Day! Do you know what that means? All those hardworking MoFo-ers are half-way through their tasty posts celebrating the vegan month of food. The lovely Kittee, of Cakemaker to the Stars and Papa Tofu fame, has organized a flash mob to celebrate today. Everyone participating in the flash mob was emailed the secret details to share with the world today: a brand new song from talented (vegan) songstress, Leslie Hall: The Vegan Song!

Vegan Song Lyrics:

I eat the finest cuisines, in the finest of places / Stuff my mouth full and always say thank you / But if it’s raised in a cage, and it can’t even move, if it’s hormone filled and in a bad mood / I’m gonna pass on that / Reach for something better / The only milk I’ll drink comes from the nipple of a soy bean / Veggies make you live forever, and they seem to taste much better / When they’re cooked and grown with love, so give a chef who knows what’s up a hug / Momma just can’t seem to get it, Papa he just rolls his eyes / When I tell them I’m much healthier, they just say that it’s all lies / But beans, nuts, fruits and veggies can really fill the belly / Get you vitamins you need, shiny hair and extra speed / Don’t take that meat-wich any further, I want a marinated, deep fried, hand-tied mushroom burger / I like it! / We gotta stand strong for our feathered, furry, sometimes scaly animal friends and their little babies / ‘Cuz I wouldn’t want to live in a cage in a dark warehouse killed at an early age / Pumped full of hormones, sleeping in my feces / Never met my mother, raised by machines / Never get sunshine never get green, but that’s just me / [That girl loves fruit leather!] / So ask us what we’re eating, delicious and repeating / Fruits and veggies are so nice, with a slice of tempeh, yes, I’ll have that twice / Don’t forget the legumes!

Happy Hump Day!

adopt a turkey, vegan MoFo.

veganmofoHappy Canadian Thanksgiving!

While I’ll be sitting down with my family today to enjoy some quality time and an awesome vegan meal (which I promise you’ll be hearing much more about in the coming days!), I can’t forget that today also marks the sad demise of millions of turkeys in this country – and that many millions more will lose their lives to mark American Thanksgiving and the Holiday Season in general.

This year we decided to adopt a turkey. No, we don’t have a turkey waddling around the living room – although that would be very cool.

Farm Sanctuary, some of the best people around, are running an Adopt-A-Turkey Project. For $25 you can sponsor a turkey and help support all the great work that Farm Sanctuary undertakes to benefit the lives of farm animals everywhere. Farm Sanctuary will mail you an adoption certificate, a photo and a little history about your turkey. Every little bit helps Farm Sanctuary and helps the animals.

Please consider adopting your own turkey and suggest the idea to others too.

That’s Olive the turkey, in the photo – I felt immediately drawn to her. She lives at Farm Sanctuary’s California shelter.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone – spread a little love this holiday season.
