Notes from Our Members
two years ago, your booklets started
me down the path to reexamining my food choices.

that your booklets DO WORK!
your site when looking for information
so that I can feed a super militant vegan friend
of mine. Your approach to veganism in your FAQ
is the first time I have seen it presented in
such a way as to not be absurd or demeaning
to those who, for whatever reason, cannot axe
every little thing out of their lives. Your
comments about eggs and why they are an issue

invited to three BBQs on the 4th
of July. I brought some Even If You Like
