It’s time to put to rest the age-old question every vegan receives at one time or another: “So, what if you were on a desert island…???” Join me at the first ever Tucson VegFest and see what vegans eat in the desert!
One of the more baffling questions that every vegan receives at one time or another is something along the lines of, “So….what if you were stuck on a on a desert island with a pig….”– or some variation of desolate isolation with the only source of food presumably being an animal. Well, even though it’s not exactly an island, join me at the first ever VegFest in Tucson, Arizona, where I was invited to speak and see what vegans eat in the desert!
I had the honor of delivering a brand-new speech entitled “The Extremism of Veganism,” which I hope to have up on the channel sometime in the coming weeks!
In this video I show you all of the delicious vegan food and introduce you to some of my fellow-speakers including:
- The incredible Haile Thomas of The Happy, who I’ve had the pleasure of featuring on my channel in her own video and as part of hte vegan kids interview series!
- Bodybuilding legend Robert Cheeke of VeganBodybuilding.com, who travels the world proving what’s possible on plants!
- Documentary filmmaker Mark Devries, the creator of Speciesism The Movie, a compelling look into factory farming and our collective prejudice against non-human animals
- Educator extraordinaire Katie Cantrell, the founder and executive of Factory Farming Awareness Coalition, who travels the country providing powerful education about the environmental, social, public health, and ethical impact of what we eat
So come along with me and also meet some awesome VEGAN KIDS! Thank you to everyone who came to the festival and to the dedicated organizers and volunteers, especially the INCREDIBLE Celeste (my gracious “helper” and genuinely generous individual) and Dominique for driving me to the Co-Op for some tastiness!
