Happy April! And appropriately enough, April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals month, as well as National Soy Month!
The ASPCA is promoting their annual "Go Orange" campaign against animal cruelty with a variety of events around NYC. Check out their kickoff on April 7th in Union Square from 4pm to 8pm, which will feature live music, adoptable animals, and the animal cops from the show Animal Precinct on Animal Planet. The ASPCA also has a list of other ways to celebrate, so be sure to check out their website for more info!
Additionally, April is recognized as National Soy Foods Month- and why not? Soy is a great source of complete protein, B vitamins, and even some omega-3s, with no saturated fats or cholesterol. In honor of versatile soy, I'll have some mock-meat recipes that'll get your steak-loving friends chowing down!
How are you celebrating? Isn't National Soy Month the perfect opportunity to pledge to be veg for 30 days? Of course, I'll be here to help with plenty of meat-free recipes on this blog :)
