Dave Warner, a spokesman for the NPPC (National Pork Producers Council) said,

“So our animals can’t turn around for the 2.5 years that they are in the stalls producing piglets.  I don’t know who asked the sow if she wanted to turn around…. The only real measure of their well-being we have is the number of piglets per birth, and that’s at an all-time high.”

This is the official position of the pork industry.  It’s all about production, production, production.

Think about this statement before you purchase ham, bacon, sausage, tenderloin, chops, or the ribs from innocent pigs.

DUH…No one needs to ask a sow if she wants to turn around.
DUH…No one needs to ask a sow if she wants to be treated like a machine.
DUH…No one needs to ask a sow if she wants to be hurt.

Choose VEGAN

and tell the pork industry in no uncertain terms that they won’t be getting 1 more cent of your money.

Choose VEGAN

and resolve to stop funding the senseless exploitation of all animals.

Animals deserve much, much better.

Get ready for some A-M-A-Z-I-N-G-L-Y rich coconut milk-based vegan ice creams.  I went to Full Tilt Ice Cream‘s University District location.  You wouldn’t suspect there are vegan options looking at just the sandwich board on the street…

…but step inside and your decadent choices beckon!  Sample them all before you decide 🙂

The “single” scoop is actually 2 huge scoops.  I had 1 scoop Mayan Chocolate (i.e. with cinnamon) and 1 scoop Chocolate Mint.  This ice cream was at least as good as Coconut Bliss, which is my “gold standard” for vegan ice cream.


My friends had a scoop of the toasted coconut flavor.

 Eat vegan ice cream and no cows get hurt.  There’s zero deprivation here!
