With my day filled with baking, hiking, organizing my high school belongings in my mom’s attic and saying good bye to Wojc before he heads to Seattle (and China!) I haven’t had time to think about blogging, but with my goal of blogging everyday for a month near complete I am motivated to post no matter how late. A couple years back I had an anonymous blog that I occasionally updated and often linked over to Tabitha’s blog for her Sunday quote posts. Some quotes touch me personally and this is a nice time to share them with others.
Several things have been pointing me in the vegan direction lately. As a life long vegetarian I have always had vegan tendencies but too often feel the call of cheese and milk. I am vegetarian for a wide range of reasons, animal rights being the primary one.
A few days ago as Wojc and I drove up highway 99 past Bakersfield, CA the smell of animal stench became unbearable. We passed slaughter house after slaughter house with dairy farms in between. You can glimpse a cow ever so often and the state of their misery all too apparent.
Today I went to the library and picked up Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s Vegan With a Vengeance and was newly inspired to focus on more vegan friendly foods. Cooking vegan forces me to be more creative, eat healthier and ease my conscience. I have always felt compassion towards animals and this unknown author has a beautiful way of emphasizing the importance of animal kindness.
