Tomorrow: Toronto Veggie Pride Parade 2011! »
Make way for the vegetable-loving Canucks, y’all!
Saturday, June 4 is Toronto’s second annual Veggie Pride Parade! Following in New York and Los Angeles' kale-fueled footsteps, this year's event promises to be a much bigger spectacle than 2010’s inaugural parade, featuring inspiring speakers and presentations, super-delicious vegan goodies, and a huge boogie-down dance party with booty-shaking animal mascots! With aspirations to become the world’s biggest and most diverse Veggie Pride Parade, organizers have extended their invitations to “veg-curious” guys and gals.
It’s sure to be an entertaining, eclectic crowd, including Capoeira players, roller derby chicks, veterinarians and vegan athletes. Canadian television personality Kimberly Carroll is serving as host and spokesperson for the big day. So if you’re visiting Toronto this weekend, or are lucky enough to live there full time, don’t miss out! Join the party at 11:30 a.m. tomorrow, June 4. The crowd will gather at Asquith Avenue (Yonge & Bloor, next to the Toronto Reference Library) and end at the Eaton Centre, right in the heart of the city.

Ryann of My Whole Deal made SO MUCH FOOD over the holidays—if only we could show you all the photos she sent. These adorable mushrooms were stuffed with black-eyed peas and collard greens, and seem like the perfect way to get your good-luck new year’s food.
Jill of Vegan Backpacker made smoothies with Rice Dream Rice Nog, frozen bananas, dates, cinnamon sticks, and “a little” cocoa powder. She says that “it made for a very merry holiday breakfast.”
Thanks, Jill, they look gorgeous! You guys, Canadians know where’s it at.
