Citation for claim that vegans are better chefs:
"Vegans are confident cooks, with 9 out of 10 vegans feeling confident about preparing a meal from scratch."
"Households containing a vegan have, on average, 12 cookbooks, compared to the UK household average of 8. UK vegans are also 10 times more likely to source recipes from the internet."
(I assume UK and US vegans are fairly similar.)

  1. Didn't know you had this spot! Glad I ran into you here. :)

  2. Hi Elaine,
    Just thought I'd say hello. I see we have a lot in common! I have a talk on the benefits of vegetarian diet, that we just added to my youtube vids, and when I checked them, your came up! I see that like me, you studied philosophy, and have similar viewpoints, and are you French? Anyway, good work on the plea for a less barbaric world! ~Donna

  3. Hi Bea,
    Yeah, it's relatively new :)
    I figured I should put the videos somewhere that was easier to navigate than just YouTube.

    HI DQ,
    I'm not really French, no. My name is French Canadian, but I'm... well, I'm American.

    I will check out your channel :)
