you’re going to vida vegan con!


You guys are the best. I got so many touching, funny, sweet limericks and haiku, and it was so hard to pick just one winner. If you didn’t win this one, I hear there will be a couple other giveaways out there. Keep your eyes peeled. Or just buy a ticket before they sell out, I guess.

The winner for my 2013 Vida Vegan Con registration giveaway is:

Sylvia Oakley!

She’s got a YouTube channel called Sylvia’s Vegan Kitchen, and her limerick, I feel, sums up the journey of so many of us.

I once felt so disconnected,
My health and well being, affected.
So I opened my eyes,
And to my surprise,
My heart ached for what I’d neglected.

I’ve since cut out meat, eggs and dairy,
I donate to Farm Sanctuary.
I swear never again,
Will I eat my dear friends,
Looking back, that was so very scary.

I now try to lead by example,
I cook so my food can be sampled,
I speak with a passion
For teaching compassion
And all vegan goodies are ample!

I’d planned on making cupcakes to celebrate the winner, but alas, I have run out of day. Sylvia, I promise there will be plenty of treats waiting for you at the conference. Seriously, there’s talk of people doing cleanses beforehand so they are ready to indulge.

Thanks again, everyone who wrote a poem. I still hope to see you at the conference!
