Welcome to the 122nd episode of Our Hen House, featuring Chloe Jo Davis of Girlie Girl Army.
In today’s episode, we discuss an annoying article regarding the sentience of peas. We talk about tactics for getting non-vegan family and friends to try the non-hummus dishes at vegan restaurants. We give you the skinny on Mariann’s recent talk on animal law, and we ruminate on whether or not to get a hybrid.
Joining us today is Chloe Jo Davis, founder of GirlieGirlArmy.com, and vegan fashionista extraordinaire. Chloe will talk to us about everything from vegan pregnancy and parenting, to current trends within vegan fashion, to tips on getting the animal message seen and heard in mainstream media.
For our review, we’ll give you our thoughts on the newest vegan cheese out there — vegan cheese shreds this time — thanks to Galaxy Nutritional Foods. Don’t miss this review of – okay, we’ll ruin it – the best vegan cheese Jasmin has ever had.
All that, vegan banter, and of course, current events from the world of animal rights.
