Halloweegan Ideas, Book Reviews, and More

Happy Fall, C-U listeners, gotta love these beautiful warm days we are having before the cold sets in.  I didn't get a post out last week and I want to give you the link to Dr. Greger's site since last Sunday I gave a lot of info from his latest DVD.  If locals are interested in watching his DVDs, I am willing to loan out my copies.  Just leave a comment.

Oh and I gushed about Michael Franti, one of my personal favorite vegan musicians.  Here is the video on PETA's site about his veganism.  He is all around amazing person so please check out his music.

Now on to this week!  We will have a couple book reviews and the Co-op Corner.  Halloween is just a week away and I wanted to share some links for making your Halloween, Halloweegan (get it, Halloween and vegan...I have Wing-it Vegan to thank for that bit of cuteness).
In fact, Wing-it Vegan is the first place I want you to check out for great vegan Halloween ideas from food to crafts (just look at the left of her page and click on Halloweegan). 

Vegan Halloween links from Veg for Life.

Halloween tips from Veg Family.

The Official Guide to Vegan Candy from VegNews.

My veg family will be hosting their first ever Halloween party this year.  Listen in for all the fun.

We love your feedback so leave a comment!

FFT for October 10, 2010

Greetings! "Meat-free" Mike here to let you know that we'll be listening to another edition of Deconstructing Dinner on this week's "Food for Thought!" It's a great one! Originally aired in March, 2009, "Hosting a Community Dialogue on Local Food Systems (I)" introduces to the audience a bounty of ways some communities in Canada are making more secure their local food systems. Don't miss it!

On Tap for Today

First, I want to thank Lovely Loretta for being on the show last week while Meat-free Mike was away.  If you missed the show, do not despair, I will ask Loretta back soon.

On tap for today...

I, Vegan Linda, will review The Complete Idiot's Guide to Vegan Eating for Kids.  It caught my eye at the local library and I give it a B.  I'll cover what I liked and didn't like.

Vegan Mania is happening again this year in Chicago.  Saturday October 9, 2010 from 10-ish to 6-ish.  Check it out.

I attended a Vegan Meet-up get together of drinks and games.  It reminded me that I should mention, not all alcoholic drinks are veg.  Check out barnivore if you would like a list.

For our veg celebrity news (we need a name for this segment, my husband suggested OMV - Oh My Vegan!, but I would love for some creative listener to come up with a better name for this portion of the show):

Check out Jane Velez-Mitchell's response to Tim Love's reasons to eat meat.

My favorite vegan musician is in the Midwest.  I highly advise people to try to make it to one of Michael Franti's concerts.

I ran into Meat-free Mike and JQ at Common Ground Co-op this week recording the Common Ground Corner so tune in for this as well.
