Today’s post is all about the celebration of eggs or rather…the lack of.
Eggs were the reason I became vegan in the first place. They were the straw that broke the camel’s back. I literally had no idea of how male chicks were disposed of, as I didn’t know it was something I even had to worry about. All those years of being vegetarian and I had no idea that I was supporting – inadvertently – something so cruel and so inhumane by simply eating an innocent old egg.
So – today is all about celebrating that knowledge and celebrating the amazing things happening around the world to try and remove that reality and find a way around using eggs to pave a way for a better, healthier, pain free, sustainable, cholesterol reduced, more enviro friendly future. Its a big call. But there’s some really exciting stuff happening.
First up – I saw this today and was so impressed at what Hampton Creek foods are doing. Not only did they take on the US egg industry who fought them over their egg-less Mayo (which I would love to try) and won….
They are also working really hard to try and create the first comparable egg-less scrambled egg. Imagine the possibilities. To say I am excited would be an understatement.
