    i love the idea of deviled avocados and carrot and pear together.

    that's a great book. it's important to teach children the truth. i grew up thinking we ate animals after they died of old age, and was very upset when i learned this wasn't the case.

    sometimes i work the american vegan society table at events in my town. i tell the children how it is when they ask. part of me is afraid of backlash from parents, but so far it has been positive.

    it's becoming so mainstream that i've met many youngsters going vegan with their parents support.=)

  3. Yum! The avocados look soo good..

    It has to be tricky know how to approach this subject with your grandchildren given the fact their parents aren't vegan. I raised my kids vegetarian.. My oldest son is a ovolacto veg and my younger son totally eats meat. Bleh

  4. I always look forward to your posts, they are so creative! I love the idea of deviled avocados! very cool

    We have this book too and my daughter likes it the best among a small assortment of kids books about veg issues. She really "got" the messages without being traumatized and loved the artwork, funny at times, cute, yet still got the mesgs across in a non-scary way. She felt free to ask questions and for us to have a conversation.
    Great idea to post about it!

  6. Just found your site and really love the concept. Today's menu looks delish. . .not sure about pears and carrots together though 😉 Will have to give it a try!

    My homeschoolers & I have this book. It's awesome! My kids totally got it. They also saw a few minutes of a PETA movie & never again have they questioned what is right & why we don't eat meat. They know it's wrong, course I know my kids & ages & knew they could handle it. They have become all the more sensitive to animals since that movie too. Love the avocado & mustard recipe, will def have to try that. I liked eggs that way too. Oh and no Grandchildren yet, but wish my parents & in-laws would get off the meat & understand why I am. My mom complains of no energy all the time.. and I try not to tell her it's the meat coma effect. I'm tired of explaining & getting the weird looks.

    Once again, great menu. I made your stuffed almond butter truffles last week and the were divine. A hit among non raw foodies as well!

  12. I've discussed this with my daughter and we've watched a few tv shows that show how inhumanely animals are treated for mass food production.
    We have boycotted KFC and like companies and we have watched Jamie Olivers show.

    This is awesome… I have been wanting to go raw for a while, any time I begin I don't have the money to keep it up. Can you continue to post more recipes?

  14. Thanks for that book recommendation! I have wanted to gather resources to share with my future kids to help them gain understanding about animal treatment. I will certainly remember this book.
