Hi, and thanks for stopping by.

I love animals and I love food. I don’t love animals as food.

Let’s face it – what is better than having a purring cat curled up on your lap on a cold Winter night, or playing fetch with a puppy on a warm Spring day? Who doesn’t love watching the ducks and geese paddling calmly on the surface of a glassy lake or seeing the young lambs, calves and foals on a drive through the country?

Likewise, food is not just an essential part of life, but an enjoyable part too. It can be mouth-wateringly delicious in so many different ways, and there is always a new taste combination to explore. Whether it’s a major holiday, a special celebration or a weekend get-together with family or friends, food always seems to be at the centre of the event.

Sadly, the food that is enjoyed often comes at the cost of an animal’s life. Or perhaps more than one animal. Animals whose entire existence from birth to premature death was steeped in misery, suffering and pain. Today’s factory farms care about one thing only – profit. Their practices are cruel and inhumane, injecting the birds and animals full of hormones and antibiotics, feeding them improper diets to fatten them faster, and forcing them to live in cramped, filthy conditions. Even the consumption of dairy products contributes to this evil scheme.

As Paul McCartney said, “If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian.”

Another way we inadvertently cause suffering is through the use of many hair and skin care products that are tested on poor helpless lab animals, often causing blindness or horrific skin reactions in the process.

This is a website that says we can do better.

We can enjoy a tasty, nutritious diet without causing the suffering and death of countless animals. We can look and feel good without blinding a thousand bunnies in the process. We can prevent the environmental damage caused by the factory farming industry.

As this website develops over time, it will have more information about how you can make a difference through the food and products you purchase. Vote with your dollars by purchasing the products and supporting the producers that align with your values and your conscience.

In the meantime, enjoy some of the many recipes you will find on the site. (I am neither a physician nor a nutritionist, and nothing here is intended to replace professional advice.)

Will you be part of the problem or part of the solution?
