Reflections on Passover and Easter, Earth Day, Starbucks, VegWeek, and Slavery

I shared my thoughts on the meaning of the current holidays, Passover and Easter, and of course, the food involved in the celebrations. I always connect the story of slavery and redemption in the Passover story to the unfortunate exploitation of people and animals today.
I shared the recipe for my first vegan, gluten-free matzah ball soup and talked about chocolate and eggs for Easter. Child slaves are still used in the Ivory Coast in cocoa production and most egg-laying hens are tortured with today’s methods of animal agriculture. I continued the conversation about raising kids in Europe versus here in North America, Compassion Over Killing’s upcoming VegWeek following Earth Day.
