His local Zen Palate (at 105th & Broadway) has closed!  🙁
We gotta support our local vegan business, people!  Especially when we can clearly see that they’re not doing too well!

The USDA retracts it’s support of Meatless Mondays after pressure from Ag business

  1. Just listened to episode 6. Honey, you made a REALLY tough decision on that commercial shoot, and I am so proud of you! No amount of money or fame will replace the good feeling inside of setting an example to be a proud vegan! I’m also glad you didn’t get epi-penned.
