In honor of World Farm Animal Day, I have two suggestions for celebrating:
1. You could make your own soy cheese. It’s easy and quite tasty.
8 cloves roasted garlic
1 cup nutritional yeast (readily available in the bulk section of Whole Foods or Wild Oats)
2 cups soy milk unsweetened
2 cups vegetable oil (try Canola)
1 Tbsp kosher salt (start with 1 tsp and add as desired)
Combine all ingredients in a blender except oil. Blend until uniform. With machine running, slowly add the oil to form an emulsion. The end result is a creamy, thick sauce-like soy cheese that is yummy on pizza or wraps.

2. Volunteer at a farm animal sanctuary or for a farm animal welfare group. No time you say? Then why not write a check and donate to a farm animal sanctuary or welfare group. These groups could not survive without volunteers or donations. Do something today! Some of my favorite groups:
Included in this post are a pictures from my trip to SASHA Farm in Michigan where my friends and I volunteered for a day. It’s fun to get out and be with the animals. A good reminder of why go vegan! Farm animals are beautiful creatures. They all deserve to experience a good life…these are some of the lucky ones.
I just learned of another upcoming day to celebrate animals. World Farm Animal Day is Tuesday, October 2. Take time to do something to celebrate these beautiful animals!
Over the next several weeks there are a few special days designated for animals. These are not your usual Hallmark holidays either. Check out the web sites for more information:
World Vegetarian Day is October 1.
World Animal Day is October 4.
World Vegan Day is November 1.
Why not do something special to celebrate animals on any or all of these dates? Here are a few idea. You could volunteer for a local animal welfare group, take an omnivore out for a veg dinner, or better yet make an omnivore a vegan dinner. Be creative and have fun! Just be sure to do something for all the creatures who inhabit our world.
