Why I'm Veg.....









This is a blog after all about jazz and "luscious vegan musings" so what better platform than to preach the gospel of veg...there is a wonderful series of videos on You Tube and they are so inspiring - everyone from Doug McNish - wonderful vegan chef and author of a fabulous new cookbook, Elizabeth May from the Green Party, Glen De Baeremaeker, hockey player Mike Zigomanis and many others.

I am vegan because I feel better, I lost weight...some 20 pounds and I am don't want the pain and suffering of animals on my conscience or the pain and suffering of the planet i.e. environment on my planet...my next step in these summer months is to transition to more and more raw - so easy with the incredible supply of fruits and vegetables including those from our garden.

People ask what do you eat? Well, I eat everything - except animal products and there is infinite variety - I have found that my cooking over the course of my vegetarian lifestyle of some 15 years has become more varied and adventurous - I'm always trying out new recipes - in fact, sometimes it's overwhelming how many recipes and cookbooks there are out there. I bring in vegan baked goods to Jazz FM on Thursdays when I'm doing "Jazzology" and I can attest those goodies disappear very quickly and in fact are anticipated....

It's not about what you eliminate but more what you embrace.

Please visit www.veg.ca - the website of the Toronto Vegetarian Association for more enlightenment in all ways. Oh, and while you're there maybe consider taking the Veggie Challenge and/or a membership....
