Vegans for Unions!

That's right!  Tomorrow morning I am getting up with some fellow vegans and we are going to bake as much food as we can for the protesters that have been camping out and getting up at the crack of dawn to show their support.  If you are interested, just contact me!  We are going to be making: pancakes, muffins, scones, and hopefully mini-donuts.  I'll try to think up some more treats.  This is what democracy is all about.  Get off your butts and DO SOMETHING!!!  I went down there today with "Yogis for Unions" and did 108 Sun Salutations in the middle of the Capitol rotunda.  We began and ended with 3 collective Ohms with the whole crowd.  It was an experience of a lifetime.  The energy there is absolutely amazing.  I was exhilarated to share my energy with all the people there!  So share your energy in any way you know how!  Mine is through yoga and veganism.  What's yours?

Everybody knows you can't begin your day of protesting (or practicing yoga) without something good to eat.  I began my day with some raw goodness: Banana Raisin Oatmeal from Ani's Raw Food Kitchen.  This stuff tastes just like oatmeal (just not warm) and is packed with wholesome goodness.  It takes minor advance prep, because you have to soak the groats overnight.  It's simple to make and absolutely delicious.  Since it's raw, you get more nutrients and tons of fiber from the groats!  The recipe doesn't call for it, but I added a tablespoon of ground cinnamon to the mix.  Delicious!
