NoteStreams By Sweet Potato Soul
I’ve been thinking a lot about freedom these days. I just finished reading the novel The Invention of Wings, which Maxx’s mom gave me on Kindle. I couldn’t stop thinking about how blessed I am to have freedom, this great gift that I value so deeply. I was born at the right time.
I’ve been asked a trillion times why I am vegan. I don’t want to anthropomorphize non-human animals, but like any living creature they deserve respect, and freedom. In my fantasy of the future people are no longer eating animals.
Now that we’ve talked about freedom and compassion for animals, we can talk about a delicious animal-free dish that is perfect for the 4th of July! I’ve made it for a handful of clients, and we all agree, this salad is the bomb!
