Joan Jett Sticks Up for Animals

Joan Jett

Joan Jett

Veg-rocker Joan Jett (Joan Jett and the Blackhearts) deserves honorable mention this month after she was kicked off a tourism float at a Thanksgiving Day parade in South Dakota when cattle ranchers complained. Kudos to Joan for sticking with it and finding a place on a different float and performing from there – the show must go on, and so must her food choices!

Joan maintains a veg diet out of her concern for animals and the environment. She says “I am a vegetarian. So I avoid contributing to the major environmental damage that the meat industry creates. I hope that soon we can make sure that everything we do is earth-friendly.” She is also a vocal supporter of both PETA and Farm Sanctuary.

We also host monthly dining events and give free nutrition and cooking classes. We've written several nationally published books, including our latest book "In Pursuit of Great Food: A Plant-based shopping guide", which provides valuable information on what to buy and how to choose great food. Our other books include "Say No to Meat" which gives the information and real-world advice that new vegetarians need the most, in an easy question-and-answer style, the fact-filled "The Vegetarian Solution", and a wide range of delicious recipes in "The Veg-Feasting Cookbook". All our books are available in local bookstores, and via our website or Amazon.com.
