Corey, Katie, Sean, Wendy and others have all offered some pretty convincing arguments for winning this week’s free cookbook, “Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook.” It’s going to be quite hard for me to decide.
From personal and family health to animal welfare, the arguments for switching to a vegetarian or vegan diet are compelling. If I may wander slightly from the topic of food, I’d suggest that anyone interested in animal welfare watch the new HBO documentary, “I Am An Animal: The Story of Ingrid Newkirk and PETA.” Newkirk is the founder of PETA, and whether you come away from the doc thinking she’s a saint or a loon, it is a fascinating and thought-provoking experience.
Watching the part about undercover slaughterhouse investigations made me even more glad that I bought my Thanksgiving turkey from a local farm this year. Besides that, the darn thing just tasted scrumptious.
Moving right along, since it seems that a few of you are dreaming and drooling over this cookbook, I’ll share an awesome recipe from the chapter on salads to tide you over until you either win it or purchase it yourself.
