I recorded this for Turning Wheel’s 2012 food justice series in response to the ad I saw while walking down University Ave in Berkeley CA this summer 2012…

…and wanted to repost it for Sistah Vegan. Go here to follow Turning Wheels’ Buddhist oriented food justice series. For the hearing impaired, Turning Wheel transcribed it.

The Sistah Vegan Project

Just another reminder that an infant in the USA can like raw greens and ‘healthy’ foods. I say USA because most people in the USA claim that kids ‘naturally’ won’t like vegetables. Just get them started early. Eva Luna is 11 months old and sees me drinking green smoothies every morning. Generally, babies want to do what their parental figures and older siblings do. She screams for it if I can’t give it to her fast enough. She is my green baby. THE RECIPE IS BELOW BUT DO NOT GIVE YOUR BABY THE ENTIRE DRINK. I DRANK MOST OF IT.

This smoothie has:

  • 1.5 c chopped Dandelion greens
  • 1 c chopped Lacinato Kale
  • 1″ cube of Fresh Ginger
  • 1/8 c chopped Fresh red peppermint
  • 1 Pinkerton Avocado
  • 1 Pitted date
  • 1.5 tsp Spirulina
  • 1.5 tsp Sol Raiz Maca Root Powder
  • 1/4 c Raw Pumpkin Seeds
  • 25 oz water

This anthology isn’t only about veganism. It’s actually critical perspectives and arts coming from a black male vegan consciousness. You can talk about veganism, but you can also talk about other topics that intersect with your vegan consciousness. What are the ways in which black vegan males think about:

  1. Hip hop culture and vegan activism
  2. Environmental and nutritional racism
  3. Meat eating as a “masculine” stereotype
  4. Class and food access
  5. Structural racism’s effects on food acces
  6. “Obesity” and diabetes in the African American community
  7. Access to clean water as a race, class, and gender issue.
  8. PETA
  9. Going Green; green jobs; green economy
  10. Fatherhood
