Each year at Passover, I make a seder for my son Noah. We are both vegan and follow a plant-based diet because we love animals. How does it make sense to exploit and eat animals that have been oppressed and held captive for a holiday celebrating freedom?
After a year or two, organic hens are packed in plastic crates and trucked to the same slaughterhouses as their conventional counterparts. There, they will be turned into chicken nuggets and deli meat. Meanwhile, in organic as in conventional productions, male chicks will be systematically tossed into grinders at birth because they are deemed economically useless: they obviously do not produce eggs, and their genes aren't optimized for fast growth. Whether one eats the egg or the chicken, the problem remains the same.

The Chase Fish & Oyster, the more relaxed sister of the upscale Chase fine dining spot, is the latest restaurant to throw their Sunday brunch hat in the proverbial ring. Having just debuted their menu at the end of April, I had a chance to taste a few of the menu items.

In North America, the most commonly-produced eggs are from battery-caged hens. These pitiful creatures live their whole lives crammed as many as five or six at a time into tiny wire cages, where they can barely move. This way they can't get any health-promoting exercise.

On June 13 2015, all around the world -- in Paris, Brussels, London, Berlin, Istanbul, Delhi, Los Angeles, Toronto, Montreal -- people gathered to March for the Closing of the Slaughterhouses. But the slaughterhouses will not close of their own accord. To close the slaughterhouses people's eyes and hearts have to be opened.
A few tired articles have been published by the usual suspects to encourage the government to get rid of supply management, which matches domestic demand with domestic supply in the five sectors it covers -- eggs, dairy, chicken, turkey and hatching eggs.
My son Noah and I live a vegan lifestyle. That's different from following a vegan diet -- although both are great! In fact, whatever you do that helps the environment, animals, humans or the earth is pretty awesome. For us, veganism extends past the plant-based food on our plate.

I find that cooking eggs can be a bit tricky. I usually end up puncturing the yolk of a fried egg, or completely destroying an omelette before it reaches my plate. But you don't need to worry about those problems when it comes to one egg dish: the frittata. They don't require a gentle hand--just mix all the prepared ingredients in a bowl and pour into your baking pan. Too easy, right?
Our challenge this week is to make a quick breakfast before everyone rushes off to work or school, using as many of the ingredients from the list as possible.

I am 27. I live in the city. I love to cook. Due to my recent past, I have found myself eating alone more often. At first, eating alone was really difficult. I would shovel down a big bowl of something that was thrown together in minutes. At one time a chore, I now consider eating alone to be an art form. My goal is to instruct anyone to do the same.

Often when I tell people that my partner and I aren't sure if or when we'll start a family, the same few questions arise. Can you imagine yourself 20 or 30 years down the road, with no children or grandchildren? Don't you want someone to carry on your family's lineage? Won't it be lonely with just you two?
