And Now for an Episode of “To Eat and Not to Eat”

To Eat:

Check out this article over at The Huffington Post about chefs who are teaching food service groups how to make vegan meals.

Here’s a small excerpt:

Veg Advantage is a select group of chefs who broker innovative new vegan products. We create new vegan dishes for food service professionals, including universities, corporate dining halls, and special events. We’ve worked with Yahoo! Corporate Dining, Disney, AOL’s café, Whole Foods, NYU, University of Texas, Yale, Johns Hopkins, and the Mayo Clinic.

Don’t miss out on the food porn at the bottom of the article either.  Droolage.  I wish I worked at one of those places and could see these meals pop up in my caf.

Not to Eat:

I officially adopted a sheep from Farm Sanctuary in western New York!  Her name is Emmalie (which I am kind of embarrassed to admit I chose because of my love for Emily Deschanel) and she is one of a group of newborn sheep whose mother was rescued from a “free range” sheep farm when she was pregnant.  You can read their story here.

Isn’t she sweet?

133I’ll be getting an adoption package in the mail in a couple weeks so I’ll have more information about her then.  Also, I can go visit her in June when I make a side trip to Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen while at my collge reunion in Elmira.

  1. cute sheep. emmalie is a beautiful name 🙂 i didnt even know you can adopt cheeps as well. its a good idea.

  2. I got an email from Farm Sanctuary about the new sheep yesterday and had actually thought about sponsoring Emmalie, but since I currently have Twinkle, I decided to wait a bit. I really hope to get up to the New York branch in the late fall.

    Eventually, I am going to also sponsor a pig or a sheep. 🙂

    • Awww you have a chicken! That’s great! I thought about doing a chicken or a pig for a long time because they would be more of a reminder of why I am a vegan but then I got that email and decided on a cute sheepy. A little less expensive than sponsoring a pig too. Although I love those oinkers. I’m sure once I go visit there I’ll be sponsoring one of everything. haha.

      I hope you’re able to visit this fall. I went to college up there and it’s a nice area. Make sure you go hike the gorge in Watkins. 🙂

  3. […] food in W. Mass. (Deals and Steals, River Valley Market) Adopted a sheep from Farm Sanctuary named Emmalie. Slacked on posting on the blog […]

  4. […] wait to tell you all about it and share some pics!  I’m also hoping to see my sheep Emmalie.  It’s been about a year since I sponsored her, so she’s probably a full grown sheepy […]

  5. […] all time favorites.  The sheep is also perfect since you’ll remember (if you’ve been following along) it is the animal I “adopted” from Farm Sanctuary, which also benefits from all sales […]
