Hi there! I need to buy a new winter coat that will be verrrrryyyy warm and I'm having trouble finding one that doesn't use down feathers :( Do you have any idea of what brands/where I can find warm vegan jackets? Thanks!!

Hi there! I don’t use coats but I found a couple of options, hope this help a little :)

Again, feel free to leave your comments if you have found any cool brands or sites too :)

Vegans may become angery at me for this but I *do* understand the financial case against veganism - not in the sense that I believe that veganism is more expensive, but in the sense that having little money puts you in a position where you don’t feel like it’s right to prioritize moral stands over feeding yourself. The main difference between plant-based food and animal-based food is that vegan “convenience food” is more expensive whereas animal-based quick foods like boxed mac and cheese, soups, Lunchables etc. are the cheapest things around (especially no-name). Cheap convenience food for me is, like, carrots.

BUT. But but. If you, an omnivore, are going to tell me that veganism is inherently expensive, you could start by comparing apples to apples (food joke somewhere in here). So if you’re going to point to $799 vegan parkas, you could maybe compare those to the $900+ Canada Goose jackets people wear and not a $40 jacket from Target, because there are also cheap, accidentally vegan coats in that price range. Same with $200 vegan Doc Martens. I get it, those are more expensive than discount store sneakers, but they’re more directly comparable to, say, actual Doc Martens? The $14 vegan burgers at Doomie’s in Parkdale? Compare those to any other burger in Parkdale aka hipster foodie hell and they’re the exact same.

Pointing out high-end vegan novelty items as “proof” that veganism is expensive is lazy and ridiculous. The fact is all lifestyles have challenges depending on your budget. There are items that are vegan friendly and unfriendly at all ends of the pricing scale.

Fur is incredibly heartless and futile.

The way fur is produced not only hurts the poor animals but also the underpaid workers who are being exposed to toxic chemicals and have to work in horrendous conditions.

Please never buy anything with fur on it. Take your time to check if that coat you are about to buy has real fur on it and think about what that means and if you want to support something like that.

The Story - Part 1

Day one of recording the fifth Mars album was here. My boyfriend of two years, Jared, had asked me to prepare a special meal for the guys tonight.

It was going to be Jared’s favorite. Vegan pizza. I was using Tomo’s famous vegan crust recipe and coating tomatoes in olive oil and pepper to be roasted in the oven when I was joined by Jared.

“Hey baby.” He greeted me with a quick kiss on my cheek.

“Hi sweetheart.”

“That’s gonna be awesome.”

I started to place the tomatoes on a sheet pan when, Jared’s older brother came up from the lab. He labored a moment, his arms still aching from pounding away on his drums.

“You want some water?” Jared asked before I could.

“Yeah.” He replied sounding spent. “What’s for dinner?”

“Jared’s favorite.” I replied.

“Tell me it isn’t that cardboard shit.”

“Nope!” Tomo called out as he came up the stairs. “I helped her with the crust this time”

“Listen.” I defended myself. “I tried ok”

The guys laughed and I continued my work. The next few months were going to be difficult. They usually were during recording and rehearsals. Shannon, was going to be staying with Jared and I. Which, of course, wasn’t really out of the ordinary. Jared was constantly on Shannon to go ahead and move in permanently, but he put him off.

But I had no idea how much my life and their lives would change.

Isn’t man an amazing animal? He kills wildlife - birds, kangaroos, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice, foxes and dingoes - by the million in order to protect his domestic animals and their feed. Then he kills domestic animals by the billion and eats them. This in turn kills man by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal- health conditions like heart disease, kidney disease, and cancer. So then man tortures and kills millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases. Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

A little step by step guide to coating my vegan fried chicken. If there’s one thing I believe in life, it’s that everyone should have a signature dish. One thing that they have used trial and error on and built from the ground up, over and over and forever tweaking that will blow people away, and this is mine.

Would anyone be interested if me and Sj made a cooking blog? Please let me know!
