Hello VeGALs (Vegan Girl AthLetes)! As we all know, it is Meatless Monday! But today also kicks off US VegWeek! For VeGALs, every day is Meatless Monday, every week, a VegWeek, after all, we are "firmly planted!" Let today and the rest of this week be an opportunity to express pride in our bodies, love and compassion for animals AND regard for our environment. Invite friends over for dinner or meet them out at a veg-friendly establishment! Set a positive example for your family, friends, work-out buddies and co-workers by introducing meat-free alternatives, chock full of flavor! If everyone could at least choose plant-based meals one day a week, we can improve our health significantly as well as reduce our carbon footprint globally! If you happen to be in the Ft. Lauderdale area tomorrow night, Tuesday, April 23rd, try and catch the screening of the film "Veducated" at Cinema Paradiso, at 7:00 p.m. where compassion over killing will be the focus!
