Hi there everyone!


I'm new to the group and am thinking about making some anti- "I love Alberta Beef" bumper stickers and am looking for some witty ideas.

So far I have:

"I will not eat Alberta Beef" (not very funny but a powerful statment)

"I love Alberta carrots" (instead of the picture of the cow there will be a carrot)

"I love Alberta Vegetarians"

"I love Alberta Cows Alive" (the word Alive will be inserted on top of the picture of the cow)

"I still love Alberta carrots" (same thing as the one above but with the word still on top of the heart)

These are just a few ideas that i've come up with and would love to have some input. And when I have them made i'll let ya know!!


Thanks

-Beth

Hey Dan!

Hey Lacy!

Wow vegetarians and vegans everywhere! It's time for me to do a happy dance too


Dancing broccoli...only on a veggie board


Thanks for the input on the stickers...i keep seeing too many "I still love alberta beef" stickers on people's cars. Ugh!! You know, everyday I go to the U of C and I see this van parked in one of the lots. It is one of the vans for this group called Active Living or something like that and on one side of the van they have an Alberta Cattle Commission advertisement professionally sprayed/mounted/whatever with the same message as the stickers you see on cars.

It just makes you wonder what people are thinking when they do things like try to promote a healthy lifestyle whilst maintaining (what appears to be) a very healthy relationship with a biased and incredibly unhealthy interest - the Alberta Cattle Commission. Obviously they care little about people and more about keeping their wallets filled with a healthy stash of cash. Poor, poor fools


I'll let you all know when the stickers are done. Sorry that I can't make it to any of the vegan meet-ups. I work on the weekends during the day


Take care all,

-Beth

Also maybe "I (Heart) (Alberta Map) (Cow Head)" and the under the whole thing it could say "so I stopped eating them!"

i know a couple people that are veganish, but not strict, hardcore about it.

Did you know that 4% of Canadians are vegan?!?! Last year, CTV ran a special on "what Canadians eat" and that'w hat they said. Lots of vegans around hehe.

FYI

Full Vegetarian/Vegan

Calgary: Buddha Veggie, best in the province

Edmonton: Padamandi, full on VEGAN

Edmonton: Oriental Veggie House, great meat analogs

Good veggie offerings can be found at:

Edmonton: Tropica on Calgary Trail

Edmonton: Jaipur Palace on 34th street

Edmonton: Haweli, Downtown near the Boardwalk Market

Veggie Groceries and cool soy products can be found at (I might have this wrong) East China Market, on 101st avenue and ~65th street. I can check this for sure if anyone wants.

I am trying to find more, but pickins are slim in Cattle Country (yee-haw!)

If you know where to go, tell us. If I see enough I'll put up list on the web of friendly places.

I've found that almost all places in Edmonton are extremely accomodating and often have very good offerings. Vegan is a bit harder, but vegetarian? No excuse here at all.

In Edmonton, you can purchase many vegan and vegetarian things at the standard grocery stores - Safeway, Save on Foods, Sobey's. For nutritional yeast, you have to go either to Planet Organic near Whyte or The Big Fresh on Jasper and ~120 st. Beyond that, I buy Braggs, Bob's Red Mill items, vegetarian appetizer platters, and more at Sobey's.

Padmandhi is one of the better restaurants I've gone to. Their sweet and sour "chicken" is great. I don't know what's in it and I don't care; all I know is that it's good

Thanks.

I think it's the same as any other place. Also, Alberta has a large influx of population from other provinces, too.

Hi Veggies! I have a very big problem digesting red meat and I am allergic to chicken so I mostly eat fish and tofu. (Quinoa ROCKS!!!) I agree that Buddha's is amazing! They're Ginger "beef" is better than any restaurant out there. Even meat-heads don't know it's not meat. I am actually in the screenprinting/promotional goods industry and would be happy to put together a t-shirt/temporary tattoo/bumper sticker order for anyone. Email me at [email protected] if you're interested.

~I (heart) Alberta Kittens, Do you see me eating them??~

Screw Wal-Mart.

Try Liquidation World, they sometimes get in BOCA. Some Save-On-Foods carry Boca as well, but they hide it in the real meat section.

You might want to try the Veggie Patch products or even the Schnieder's Oh Naturel! line, far superior to Boca, also Canadian.

Superstore is a dead end for Vegans, but they do make some Blue Menu Vegetarian products as well as President's choice veggie patties and veggie burgers. Also in the meat cooler.

More Info? PM me, I'll hook you up.
