VeganMofo#11: Pigless ribs

This is a super easy recipe I found in the most recent issue of Veg News.  If you love BBQ sauce, you’ll love it.  I’m not a huge fan of BBQ sauce. I won’t list the recipe here.  If you want it, you’ll have to go get your own issue of VegNews Magazine! Mine turned

VeganMofo #9: Olives, olives and olives

It’s almost the end of the month and I’m about 10 posts behind.  Let’s see if I can catch up. Has anyone been to the olive bar at the new Whole Foods on Cambie Street?  It’s hidden way in the back where they keep all the rancid cow puss (aka cheese).  Guess that’s why I

Vegan Mofo #4: Veggie Lunch at Simon Fraser University

The best days to hand out Vegan Outreach booklets at SFU is on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  Why?  Because of the veggie lunch of course! Every Tuesday and Wednesday, there’s a Hare Krishna who serves up hot vegetarian food for $5 donation in the basement of the Maggie Benson building in the Forum Chamber.  It’s not

Our food choices matter

Richard Schwartz recently posted an article on the Veg Climate Alliance website, “Global catastrophe or sustainable future?“. It’s worth looking at if for nothing more that the extensive list of sources. He really looks into how exactly a shift towards a plant-based diet would reduce ghg emissions enough to give us time to solve the
