As if this year wasn't awesome enough already! Today you can get Gene Baur's new book "Living the Farm Sanctuary Life" and we just happen to have a recipe in it.
This next sentence isn't even going to make sense. Our recipe will be in the book alongside 99 others from the likes of Chloe Coscarelli, Emily Deschanel, and Moby. Exsqueeze me?! Ya, we don't even believe it ourselves. The book has more than just delicious vegan recipes, it will also offer inspiring, practical guidelines on how to incorporate the Farm Sanctuary lifestyle into everyday life.
The book is available to order here and we'd love to see a pic if you already have it in hand. We're waiting for ours to be delivered any day now!
You can watch Gene's interview with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show last night promoting the book and talking all about the environmental benefits of going vegan and the impact this lifestyle change has on our health.
Now check this out! In 2011 I met Gene Baur (and fan-girled) for the first time at an event called 10,000 tastes 10 billion reasons at Yonge & Dundas Square where coincidentally they were giving away free veggie dogs. That's how Gene first started his activism by selling veggie dogs out of a VW van! Now I'm in his cook book... life is crazy.
Just a small piece of news! We are now contributing original content about all things vegan to the newly launched women's lifestyle website W Dish (Corus Entertainment). It's very exciting and you can see our recipes and vegan living tips bi-weekly on the blog.
Our first article is now up and it's a list of the 10 essential items you'll need to stock up on if you want to go vegan (or try). Remember even replacing one meal a week is a good start to contributing to a healthier you and a more happy planet. Check out the list here.
If you're looking to give the perfect gift to the vegan(s) in your life look no further than this simple and lovely holiday vegan gift guide from vegan blogger kind gourmet.

But check out Christina's list and you'll even notice our white chocolate cranberry cookie bars made it onto her homemade from the heart gift ideas. Happy holidays everyone!
