Let's face it, even though being vegan and eco-friendly encompasses your entire life, you're most interested in the food. But finding and making delicious healthy, compassionate and ethical meals can be challenging, especially if you're brand new to this way of living. Eco-Vegan Gal is here to help you navigate the water, sharing her favorite finds and best resources in the following sections.
Here are some of my favorite Raw foods (FYI - this post is from 2008):
- Oaxaca Raw
- Kosmic Kreations
The first time I had a Sunshine Burger was a few years ago and honestly, I really didn't like it. I wanted to, because they seemed much healthy than most vegan burgers - organic, gluten-free, and soy-free. But I disliked the taste and texture so much I left the box in my freezer for a while, until I pulled it out and gave it another try with the same reaction.
During the Home Tree Earth Day VIP Reception, Robert Cheeke and I asked actor & activist Adrian Grenier how his diet was eco-friendly - he didn't have much to say on the topic so it was very brief. He started off by asserting that he is "certainly not vegan", but said he thinks food tastes better when you're paying attention. In fact, Adrian enjoys "inspecting the tomatoes and feeling the melons". Check out the video to hear about one of his favorite vegetarian dishes.
As a big Lost fan, I was really excited that Robert and I had a chance to interview Michelle Rodriguez at the Home Tree Earth Day VIP Reception. She was quite down-to-earth yet very passionate and feisty. When we asked how her diet was eco-friendly, she cringed and said "you're not going to be happy with my answer", admitting she "needs some work in that area". Since she knew we are vegans, she teased us and countered with: "salads have feelings too!"
