COK Investigation at a North Carolina Turkey Hatchery

I received Compassion over Killing's newsletter in the mail this week, and even the still pictures from this video were heart-wrenching. My six-year old daughter saw them and said, "I want to change it." I didn't let her see the video. I hope there's a way to stop animal factories like this. I fear that most people are under the delusion that their turkeys grow up happily on farms.

New Favorite

Jennifer had a post about peanut butter roll-ups today (these with black beans--not a favorite in our house). I love peanut butter roll-ups and usually make them with banana and honey--but sometimes with avocado. I prefer sprouted-grain tortillas.

I've got a new favorite peanut butter that I described to Jennifer in the comments of her post:

Once Again Nut Butter Organic American Classic Creamy Peanut Butter--it's made with palm oil to keep it all together and has a little sugar and salt to remind us of our skippy-eating youth. It's about half as salty as conventional peanut butter--James and I miss the salt, but the kids don't and that's what counts.
