A Step in the Right Direction

I was happy to find this information today.  

Alton Brown has long been my most favorite chef on Food Network and it is welcome news that anyone on that network is recognizing the problems our current food system is causing and making an effort to address the issues (no, he is not going vegetarian, but like I said - it's a step).  I realize some of my readers may not watch that network due to the prolific use of animal products by, well, every single show.  But long before I went veg I learned much of what I know of cooking from watching Food Network and am still quite the addict (and still learning).  

If you use Dish Network you should check out the channel Veria.  They have lots of interesting holistic shows, including a cooking show called Naturally Delicious by Ann Gentry, founder of the restaurant Real Food Daily in L.A.  Her show is completely vegetarian, and almost completely vegan (I saw her use an egg once, in a recipe for pancakes, where it was completely unnecessary, and a tiny bit of cheese one other time, but those were the only digressions).  If you are a cooking television addict like me it is very refreshing to watch a program in which you can eat every item made without having to modify the heck out of it.

In other news, I signed up to participate in VeganMoFo.  I hope it is the catalyst I need to blog more often, so be sure to check back frequently in October since I'll be posting close to every day ::gulp::!
