Meatout

This post is my contribution to Meatout, a grassroots food education campaign. Here’s a description from their website:

On (or around) March 20, thousands of caring people in all 50 U.S. states and two dozen other countries get active to host educational events for Meatout- the world’s largest grassroots diet education campaign. Activists distribute free food, educate their communities, and ask their friends, families, and neighbors to “kick the meat habit” and explore a wholesome, compassionate diet of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

I’m not a proselytizing vegan most of the time, but I do think this is an important effort. According to Wikipedia, “the production of protein from grain-fed animals requires eight times as much fossil-fuel energy as the production of plant protein.” Vegan food is delicious AND saves tons of energy.

On another note, this video has a very special guest star…my sister! We came up with a whole back story when we were filming so that we could get into character. See if you can figure out what it is…

    Hi from Meatout. I’ll definitely be bookmarking you to come back to visit later.

  2. Another delightful video. I’ve never thought of making vgf lasagna with rice wrappers. It looks delicious! Anything with cashew ricotta has already won over my heart. You and your sister are quite the pair of karaoke cuties. I apparently now have a crush on your entire gene pool. :) I’m dying to know the backstory!

  3. awwww you are so nice! but the backstory is top secret…wouldn’t want to spoil your imagination.
