Sweet Talk with Robin Asbell, author of “Sweet and Easy Vegan,” Plus a Spotlight on Amos Bronson Alcott
In this episode, we talk with Robin Asbell about her new book, Sweet and Easy Vegan. We shine the spotlight on Amos Bronson Alcott, an abolitionist, educator, and vegan advocate ahead of his time. We also bring you 10 reasons to go vegan in the New Year, and highlight some organizations that are helping animals and people in Central Oregon. Plus, find out how a team of dogs is comforting people in times of tragedy.
And, of course, we highlight additional News from the Vegan Frontier, let you know about vegan related happenings in and around Central Oregon, and more!
A few months back, just before we were all headed up to Portland VegFest, we had a return visit from one of our favorite cookbook authors, Robin Asbell, author of Sweet and Easy Vegan. We thought this interview would be a good one to share for the holidays, along with a special recipe from her book.
You might also want to check out this interview we did with Robin back in January 2012.
