Happy Vegan (Feast) Thursday! Here it is another Thursday and another day dedicated to all things animal friendly. Earlier this week I was totally irked by a quick segment on the morning news (Today Show). Apparently, (and I haven’t looked into this, but will) Tamron Hall took part in some survivor challenge and was told she needed to skin and cook a….squirrel IN ORDER TO GET HER PROTEIN. I haven’t decided if I am going to reach out to NBC about this but am pretty sure someone will. Not because it was so gross, but because people shouldn’t be spreading MISinformation on a news show….
Because I have learned that being an “in your face” vegan is no better than being an “in your face” religious or political extremist, I try so hard to think of ways to just remind the world that making a choice today, to eat a plant-based meal, is a great way to help the planet, help our health and of course help the animals. Today, I decided to just let Google images do the talking, since a picture really is worth it’s weight in words.
After I eliminated the images that fell into that “in your face” category I stumbled upon this one, which I thought was really cute. Lisa is so soulful.
Then I found this one which is pretty educational:
Then I found an old favorite of mine:
And finally, I found this one, which stopped me from looking any further. For all of you that think that you need more and more and more protein to fuel your muscles. Here’s all I have to say……..

I will be subbing for Ellen today and tomorrow at 10. The gym is closed Monday for Labor Day (probably Sunday, too…will let you know later). Next week I am subbing for Ellen at 10 on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. My schedule is regular (less Monday, for the holiday)
Today’s 21 day meditation challenge was focused on compassion. Especially because today is Vegan (Feast) Thursday, please extend your compassion to animals as well as people. Considering some plant-based options for your meals today will show compassion towards both!
Thanks everyone who continues to vote and share the SilverSneakers link for Charlotte….Much appreciated….and Much love……..
