Share my joy! I’m SO excited to share with you this new 2-minute video for my new book, Stellar Vegan Salads!

Wines by The Vegan Vine

Wines by The Vegan Vine

I just received an order of wines by The Vegan Vine and decided I must share with you this favorite of mine! On a few separate occasions, I’d enjoyed both the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Sauvignon Blanc; VV also makes a Chardonnay and a Red Blend. Purchasing online at The Vegan Vine web site makes it easy to shop. The wines are fragrant and flavorful, and a hit with vegan and non-vegan friends alike. When our non-vegan friends are trying a glass of VV for the first time, it can easily spark a conversation that gets them making connections about animals and food in a new way. Definitely a fun, festive way to slip in some animal advocacy during a social gathering. So how exactly are any wines not vegan-friendly? Of course, the grapes are vegan; but often animal-derived products are used in the wine making process to filter the wine. The most common animal-derived clarifying agents: isinglass (sturgeon bladder), gelatin (hooves of cows and pigs), albumin (egg whites), and casein (milk protein). Ick. Vegan-friendly wines, on the other hand, use a clay-based alternative. I’ve written before about some really great Vegan-Friendly Wines and the online/app resource Barnivore, where you can check the status of a vintage as you browse. While some of your usual vintages may disappoint, you also will be pleasantly surprised to find that many wineries are now using the clay-based clarifiers, despite the fact that few identify themselves as “Vegan-Friendly” on the label. Recently, I gave the owner of a neighborhood wine shop a little in-store demonstration of how easy Barnivore.com is to use — and he’s now using it to assist other customers who come in looking for some vegan vino. Barnivore aside, it’s certainly nice finding a few favorite wine companies you can count on — like The Vegan Vine. I encourage you to buy a bottle or two for your next soiree. Through the end of October there’s a 50% off Sale going on, so it’s an excellent time to stock up for the...

Faux-Fur Design Competition at Parsons

Faux-Fur Design Competition at Parsons

Several months ago, I was thrilled to attend the Cool vs. Cruel Competition Awards held at the TriBeCa Grand Hotel. The event was the culmination of  the creative efforts of both the Humane Society of the United States and students of the Art Institutes. The designs on display (and on models looking gorgeous as they mingled with the rest of us) were all so fantastic — proof that, even when there is a resurgence of fur on the runways,  it is possible to be fur-free and cutting edge at the same time. I especially love the HSUS Fur-Free Campaign for its work with fashion students; these budding designers are the future trendsetters of the fashion world. Giving them this kind of incentive early on, and helping them become more mindful in their design process of the potential impact on animals, is simply AWESOME! Since 2009, The HSUS has been presenting at the prestigious design school to educate students about the problems associated with animal fur. Now, more exciting news in the realm of cruelty-free fashion: The Humane Society of the United States and Donna Salyers’ Fabulous-Furs have launched a faux-fur design competition at Parsons The New School for Design. Parsons alumni include Donna Karen, Marc Jacobs, Jason Wu, Tom Ford, Isaac Mizrahi, Anna Sui, Mark Badgley and James Mischka. So the winner of this competition will be in good company. The contest challenges students to create faux fur designs within the categories of women’s wear, menswear, children’s wear, or accessories, to be developed for inclusion in their senior thesis or other major studio project. Later this year, six finalists will be selected by a panel of industry experts to receive sponsored material from Donna Salyers’ Fabulous-Furs. The finalists will be judged for inclusion in future exhibitions at Parsons and will compete to win cash prizes awarded by The HSUS. I can’t wait to see what they come up...

Whale Watching, Cape Cod

Whale Watching, Cape Cod

During my travels, I’m always looking for ways to interact with animals — whether it’s by visiting a local animal sanctuary, hiking through the woods, or walking along the beach. When in Cape Cod, one is almost certain to feel the pull of the whale watching opportunities. I was just a young girl the first time I experienced the thrill of the whale watch, with my family during a a stay on the Cape. A little later in life, I would be privileged to receive a grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities to spend the better part of a summer researching and discussing with a select group the different aspects of Herman Melville’s work — Moby Dick, of course, a focal point of our work. The magnificent white whale. Mythic. Epic. And, just as in literature, sighting a whale is among the  most mesmerizing and humbling experiences in life. Responsible Whale Watching: WhaleSense.org We know too much about the horrors of Sea World or other similar entertainment parks to partake in those kinds of interactions. However, it’s also important to do a little homework before signing up for a whale watch. As always, the idea is that we want to observe wildlife without being disruptive; and whale-watching is largely a self-regulated industry with few laws looking out for the welfare of the mammals. I was happy, then, to discover Whale SENSE, an organization whose mission is to ensure the safety and well-being of the whales and other sea animals while allowing us to enjoy these commercial whale watches. Participating companies agree to: Stick to responsible whale watching guidelines Educate naturalists, captains and passengers to have SENSE while watching whales Notify appropriate networks of whale problems (injured or entangled whales) Set and example for other boaters for responsible whale watching practices Encourage ocean stewardship Check out the Whale SENSE web site to look up the company and see if it is a participant. The site lists whale watching companies in Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York. You’ll also find some great information about the different species of whale and dolphin there.  ...
