Going vegan is more than a diet change, it’s an opportunity to take on the challenge of a compassionate lifestyle based on environmental stewardship, service to others, and ahisma (non-violence). Living vegan is not about giving up food groups, it’s about gaining a more conscious life for yourself, community and the planet.
Sacramento Vegan Challenge presents 1000 Vegan Cupcakes for Charity 2013. This year’s theme is “Farm to Cupcake.” 11 participating bakers/ bakeries will be creating 100 cupcakes each and including locally-grown ingredients for categories such as “Fresh & Fruity,” “Very Veggie,” and “Nuts ‘n Nuggets.” Cupcakes will be available for cash-&-carry purchase in 4-packs or sampler packs (variety selection=your choice!) We will be supporting Animal Place farmed animal sanctuary in Grass Valley, Grow it Kindly Veganic CSA program, and A Well-Fed World. Special musical performance by vegan singer-songwriter Kyle Vincent. Guest ‘celebrity’ judges including Gina Garcia of Yoga in the Park, Jennifer Fearing of The Humane Society of the United States/ CA, and Colleen Holland of Veg News magazine…plus local news reporters.
Want to give a vegan lifestyle a try? We encourage you to take on the challenge of a healthier life and put together a great list of resources, cookbooks, free starter kits, and even nifty iPhone apps for meal planning to get you started! And I know you’re thinking: “But what about my protein??” – you can also see what the firefighters who wrote the “Engine 2 Diet” have to say about that!
