Should You Ask?

January 12th, 2009

This is a post inspired by a question I asked on Twitter and some responses that followed.  If a vegan restaurant is serving a dish traditionally made with dairy replaced with soy ingredients is it OK to not directly disclose on the item unless someone asks?  Is this the same as walking into any other restaurant and asking if a dish contains a dairy product that may not be outwardly obvious?  Is this the same or remotely different?  I’m not arguing either side, I am just curious what my visitors think on the subject.


Happy 2009!

Go Vegan in 2009!

2009 has arrived and resolutions to go along.  Have you made a resolution to go vegetarian or vegan?  Plenty of websites, including this one, are out the to help you with that promise to yourself and make it stick.  PETA offers a free Go Veg kit and Vegan Outreach offers a Vegan Starter Guide.  Remember that if you are taking the vegan road it branches far from the food you eat.  The products you use and what you wear is also included in that, but don’t think that makes it harder, there are plenty of products out there that are free of animal products and animal testing.  The National Anti-Vivisection Society has an online database to check if the products you currently use are cruelty-free.

Going vegan or vegetarian can be one of the most rewarding changes you can make in your life and there are plenty of ways the new found energy and health will reward you back!

Happy New Year!
