Peta promoting junk food to children


I Can't Believe It's Vegan. is a guide to vegan foods found in your local grocery store. The goal presumably is to persuade people that they are already half way to becoming vegan because many of these products are things we all eat every day.

Corn Pops, Pop-Tarts, Reese's Puffs, Kool-Aid, Cracker Jack, Barbecue Fritos, Krispy-Kreme Fruit Pies, Chocolate Creme Oreos, Swedish Fish, Campbell's Franco-American Mushroom Gravy, McCormick Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning (for non chicken eating vegan's?), French's Beef Stew Mix (wtf? ), Peanut Butter, Jam, Margarine, are some of the things listed in the guide.

However, these are all factory processed foods. High carbohydrate junk foods in my opinion, and most of it is made from dubious ingredients (large quantities of sugar, weird food additives and ingredients with unpronouncable names) and shipped long distances from source to supermarket, burning non renewable fossil fuels and damaging the environment.

peta is promoting this stuff to kids, so the kid sees it, and says, hey, I already eat a lot of that stuff - I'm already half way to being a vegan, so they start eating more of it, they show the list to their parents who then see that it's easy to buy vegan food for little Pammie, and so we are heading for a generation of kids who are even more unhealthy than they are at present.

If this is the diet peta is promoting, no wonder they are all brain dead.

Where are the fresh vegetables? Fresh fruit? Fresh herbs?

Where are Dried fruits? Nuts and seeds? Dried beans and pulses?

Where's the pearl barley and the rice?

Whatever happened to the homecooked meal? vegan or otherwise?

Another black mark for peta!!!!

If you love animals and want to eat a healthy diet, choose good variety of fresh fruit and salads, dairy products, grains, cereals and meat and stay away from the highly processed foods pictured here..

Happy Eating

PETA is too busy trying to stop milk delivers to the kids schools to be worried about junk food. PETA needs to take it's head out of their ass.
