It is time to put on your Hoppy Vegan tank or t-shirt for Easter since it can be a tough time for vegans. The food industry hides animal products in many different ways including casein, gelatin, whey, confectioner's glaze, carmine, castoreum, lanolin, and bone char.
St. Patrick's Day can be a great time to introduce people to vegan food and drinks. Before you send out an invitation, start with a plan. The first step is to think about when you are going to have a party. Are you going to have it on St. Patrick's Day or the Friday or Saturday after St. Patrick's Day? Where are you going to have it? Are you going to have it at your house, a bar, or a park? Then think about who and how many people you are going to invite. What are people going to do while they are at the party? Write a list of activities including games, watching a movie, dancing, listening to music, eating, and socializing.
