Travelling With Fido and Easy Vegan Recipes from PETA

PETA has posted their Top Tips for Travelling With Dogs. If you are planning to travel with your dog this summe, you should definitely check this out. One of the tips is to give your canine ginger treats to help prevent carsickness (also works in humans for sea-sickness). You can order some online from by clicking here.
(Ginger Kitty Cookies)

PETA has also made another 2-week menu for new vegans, with super simple recipes. Certainly a must for people short on time or a just kitchen-challenged! Even if you arent a new vegan, there are many tasty, easy recipes. (printer friendly with recipes, 27 pages)

New Vegan Fast Food Options!

Thanks to an email I got, there are now more options on the list. The Mediterranean Veggie was added to Panera Bread, and a veg*d up Taco Salad and Taco Bell was also added. In addition, a whole section was added for the restaurant, McAlister's Deli.

You can see the updated list here:

Busy Track Girl

I've been crazy busy the last few weeks. I had a huge Biology presentation/paper, and then it"s been nonstop Spanish, French, and Algebra II.

I've also been doing track and the practices are quite long. This past Wednesday, I had a meet at Spaulding (Barre) and I did really well (vegan athletes! rule!)

I got 3rd place in the girls 800m, out of at least 10 or 12 other high school girls!! I was supposed to have a meet today at Harwood Union (Duxbury), but it was rained out (of course though, we didn't find out until AFTER we got there). Well, I shouldn't say we. I (and the coach). Its a freshman/sophomore meet and I'm the only freshman (or sophomore).

So I ended up missing time with my boyfriend AND the sports assembly at school. And I happen to hold 4 school records :P They are:
HS Girls Long Jump - 10'4 (really sucky, the weather was bad but I'm the first girl to do this event!)
HS Girls 800m - 3:01.57 - Again, first HS girl to do this BUT I will improve this season cuz:
JNR HIGH Girls 800m - 2:56
JNR HIGH Girls 400m - 77 (or 1:17)

Ya I like braggin' because people say vegans don't make good athletes.... BULLSHIT!!

For Easter, I made crudites, which is a French word for raw vegetables served with dip. I also ate chocolate cupcakes, mashed yams, roasted asparagus with garlic, steamed broccoli, and plenty of candy (jelly beans, gumball eggs, etc.)

Sorry I haven't been on, school has been so busy. Right now I'm waiting for some bread to rise because I have to make baguettes for french class. Yummy!
