This is just for fun. There is no cooking involved, just the most adorable karaoke of all time:
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…
I noticed that this blog had a spike in viewership yesterday, which happened to be Mardi Gras. Is this a coincidence? I hope not! Please leave a comment if you enjoyed one of my videos on Mardi Gras!
In other news, I received a fabulous song request from Bluszcz via Twitter. He suggested I make a video to the song “Be Healthy” by Dead Prez. I’m going to pass on the recommendation because me lip-synching to rap (other than the Ludacris solo in “Baby”) would not turn out well, but I highly recommend you listen to the song:
This song has an awesome message and made me think of the Rethinkers. It also made me hungry for some of the yummy vegan soul food I had on a recent trip to New York.
