Vegan Pizza

Today is Thanksgiving in the United States.  President Obama pardoned two particular turkeys, Cobbler and Gobbler, at the White House (no, I don't know if  they were Republicans). I'd like to pardon ALL the turkeys of the world - and any other sentient creatures that we routinely call "food."

Although we didn't have pizza today, I wanted to get this blog posted before dinner's another idea in my occasional series of "what do vegans eat since they don't eat animals or animal parts?"

Combine whole wheat dough, fresh tomatoes in marinara sauce, fresh sliced sugar snap peas, fresh chopped broccoli florets, fresh chopped onion, Italian pizza/pasta spices, and vegan cheese (prepackaged made from tapioca and vegetable oils among other things).  I'm not much of a cook but even I can put these things together, put it in the oven, and make a healthful meal.

Albert Einstein was generally considered a pretty bright guy.  In addition to his scientific Theory of Relativity, he said that "nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet." Food for thought.

We did have the following pair of wild turkeys feeding at the base of our bird feeders yesterday. Maybe they know they're safe at the home of vegans? (Note: this was another of my photos taken through four layers of glass in early morning faint light - wild turkeys are skittish critters and spook easily so I had to stay hidden inside).

Happy Thanksgiving to all! And to all a good night! (Whoops, wrong holiday).
