No Kill Lehigh Valley (NKLV) is in the running for a $50K grant from Pepsi Refresh, money that they really need to help pay for veterinary expenses and provide spay/neuter services to companion animals as well as providing TNR services to feral cats.

The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend Them
Wayne Pacelle has written a new book which “examines our contradictory attitudes towards animals and points to a better way forward.” The book comes out on April 12, and I can’t wait to read it! Wayne is such a great, well-spoken (and handsome!) leader for HSUS, and I’m interested to see what he has to say about the movement in his book. You can read more and see his introductory video about it here.
Wintery Tofu Scramble
Usually I like my scrambles warm and spicy, but I really liked the sweetness of this one for a little something different. Cooked it up and put it in a wrap with some fresh spinach, and toasted it on my cast-iron. Best breakfast I’ve had in a while! I should definitely toast my wraps more often.
Ingredients of the scramble are: olive oil, onion, garlic, red & green bell pepper, sweet potato, cranberries, cinnamon, cumin, coriander, red wine, Bragg’s, tofu, and nutritional yeast.
