nfb gets by with a little help from our friends

{i am starting a blog series with a 5 mini-interview with people who help us out here at never felt better when ever then can, and in many different ways.  i don't thank people enough probably, so i will start to remedy that starting now, in no particular order because my mind does not work like that :) }

i met miss raven while she was working at spv last year and was totally impressed with her successful vegan social day held in the spring. she has since been helping us out during busy times and at the veg fests.  i hope that she will plan an event or two here over the spring and summer as well (HI RAVEN THAT'S A HINT!)

of course, i can't forget to mention my thankfulness for her cameo in the nfb commercial which saved me from having to bumble through my own commercial.  trust me YOU'RE WELCOME.

so she was kind enough answer my questions as i grilled her about her veganism LOL and it went like this:

j: how long have you been vegan?
r: i've been eating in the spirit of veganisim since i saw some very disturbing documentaries on what actually happens to the animals we use as food. a large part of my diet is made of fresh organic fruits and veggies, because i prefer non processed foods.

j:  are your family and friends supportive of your decision to be cruelty-free?
r:  my family and most of my friends are in favor of having a cruelty-free diet.

j:  are there many vegans on your school campus?
r:  there are a few vegans at my school, but most are not. 

j:  what's the best part about being vegan?
r:   the best part is to continue to be mindful of having a diet that is sustainable and respectful to animals.

j:  5 years from now where will you be?
r:  in five years i hope to still be a part of activism for health care, economic reform, social human rights, and continue to eat in a mindful, healthy way. 

  make it so, raven!  right on.  
peace vegan warrior grrl

hold the phone

two posts in one day?  i just had to interrupt your train of thought with this:
you got that right:  vegan gummies.  say no more. 
available in store only.  1910 P st. sunny, beautiful midtown sacramento ca. 95811. 

UPDATE:  the strawberry creme and cherry flavors have fucking yellow beeswax.  i pulled both boxes. WTFZOMG i am less than pleased with THAT however the two other flavors are, in fact, amazing.  

welcome 2012!

well we did it!  we got through the year in one piece, mostly ;p  the shop survived it's first holiday season at the new location, we met lots of new faces and were happy to see a lot of old customers wander in to shop us.  i posted our commercial to youtube, but it hasn't gone viral yet...so get to watching and pump up those views lol.

things to look forward to:

this saturday the 14th of january we are having our vegan mac-n-cheeze cookoff.  if it is anything like our previous cookoffs, it is about to get REAL SERIOUS up in here!  i hope that a lot of folks bring their grumpy omni-friends who swear they can never live without their cheese.  this may blow the top of their head clear off in cheezy joy. $2 donation encouraged!

the 29th i am planning a lazy sunday vegan book and cookbook exchange.  bring a book, take a book.  more info to come with that FB page as it's made.

on feb 4th there will be another sacramento veg fest and we will be there again with bells on.  this time, we would like to give out sheese samples again as well as information to get interest and potential members of sacramento's only vegan food coop as well.  it's in the planning stages and we are getting green lights with everyone we speak to.  if you would like more info join the group and see how you can help our effort!
our new perfect vintage wood and glass display case makes me so very happy...
