A CHEF WILL CHANGE THE WORLD
Chefs always change the world. They’re the first ones to your gut. The animal chefs had a go at it – for millennia – and they made the world worse off, not better off. It’s long past time. It’s way over-due.
There will be no negotiations – NONE – no more putting on a back burner, where all it does is simmer till it disappears, that which should have been served first. It’s front and center. The main course, every course, in full view where everybody can see, the prize. It’s standing room only, but you don’t care as long as you get a taste. And you will. That you know.
Now the animal-free chefs get their turn. Now they have a go at it. And yes, stand down, just like we all did when you took the reins and sentenced to the worse hell on earth all creatures large and small for your palate.
Because you were addicted to the blood, you made the blood part of your life sustaining and pleasure seeking plan – the menu.
The menu is mine now. You disrespected the menu by making war with it, against it, by committing the most horrendous war crimes against the most innocent as you smeared the menu with prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter. Then you hid the blood, the suffering, and the proof of curdling screams under crafty trusses and sauces meant to deceive, not enlighten.
You all had it your way for way too long and you all contributed to making a mess of the planet. Now God is up. You don’t need a religious God to make the world turn in it’s proper direction, all you need is yourself as your own God. Raise yourself up. Sing praise to you.
I will be on the front lines cooking animal-free and sending the Five Principles to a Better Life – no prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter – all over the globe. With God on the side of living and thriving not dying until your day is done, this battle will be won.
You are no longer God’s child. You ARE God. Ever notice how religions keep saying we’re all children of God, as if God is the parent, and whatever we do, it must be God’s will for us to do? No human parent would raise a child that way. “No matter what you do – Johnny or Mary – know in advance that you have my blessing?”
It’s a bunch of mumble jumble used to keep your mind and soul muddled, so you don’t know what’s up, what’s down, what’s right, what’s wrong, always in the dark of not knowing, so that the animal – abusing industries (including the human-abusing industries), supported by all religions and governments, if not through words, through actions, can control your actions for the so-called benefit of the so-called group, based on their animal-abusing agendas.
The task of switching from animal-based to animal-free cuisine is not too large, nor is it insurmountable. It just appears that way – because of your muddled minds and souls. The world has changed and will continue to change quickly at junctures that appear, seemingly out of nowhere, to facilitate that change, whenever and wherever the gap between life and death is shortened to the point of meaningless life.
We are at the door of the juncture that can change the planet by lengthening the gap between life and death to the point of meaningful life for all who inhabit the planet, instead of a torturous life that leads to slaughter.
The door is open. You don’t have to walk – nor run or close your eyes and hope you float – through it. That door will never close. The opening will only get bigger and bigger and bigger till next thing you know the entire world is on the inside. It’s quick. It’s painless. You’ll wake up in a comfortable place – a place of familiarity – and know that this is the place you’re supposed to be. This is where you want to be. Animal-free.

AFC GLOBAL MISSION STATEMENT
I am on a mission to keep animals out of my food, medicine, clothing, non-food products, science, engineering, art, architecture, entertainment…
I do not have to debate the mission.
I already know where I stand.
Using thought, word and deed I transmit my mission to all beings.
So why do it for free?
To keep my work corruption-free. When someone pays a salary, they dictate the terms, meaning what and how I write and the type of recipes I develop and the suggestions I give in all areas of surviving and thriving. I chose not to put my name on other people’s words who work behind the scenes as contributors.
I take credit and responsibility for all of my art – from writing to cooking to painting to activism. That’s who I am and how I prefer to fly.
If and when donations come in they will improve the quality of my life, not my work.
Dear Future Animal-Free Chef,
Welcome to the new and exciting world of animal-free cuisine! It is indeed a pleasure to join you! I’ve been developing animal-free recipes since 1972, so I have a lot of recipes and knowledge to share.
My kitchen is animal-free. That is, I use no animals or animal products in my cooking – no FLESH, BLOOD, MILK, EGGS or any part of any animal. I do this out of respect for the animals, whom I believe have as much right to live out their natural lives on earth as I do.
I would not, personally, go out and kill an animal to eat and I don’t expect anybody else to do it for me. By not eating animals I preserve the lives of those living and discourage the procreation of those destined for slaughter.
I fully understand that many of you don’t make the connection between killing a defenseless animal against his/her will and the neatly packaged sanitized piece of meat that you purchase in the supermarket. For most of my [earlier] life neither did I.
However, I believe that having always done something is not necessarily a good reason for continuing to do it, and that we must examine our traditions and the ways in which those traditions inflict pain and suffering upon other creatures.
Animals do not want to be slaughtered (we wouldn’t either). We do not need to eat them to achieve and maintain good health. So, I do neither. It’s that simple!
Having come to this conclusion, but still having an appetite for fine tasting foods, and not finding much in the way of vegetarian cooking that appealed to me, I decided to develop my own animal-free recipes. I already knew how to cook with animals, now I would learn to cook without them.
I cooked day and night experimenting with only the finest ingredients, discovering new ways to please my palate, my husband’s palate and anyone else’s who ate at our house. I would prove to everyone that we could still enjoy exquisite tasting foods without the addition of animal products.
And I did just that, proved it again and again. Thousands of recipes later, I am happy to share with you the results of that continuing labor!
The recipes appearing in this collection contain no animal products, thus no cholesterol. Each is an original created by me to tantalize and delight the palate. Each is easy to make with ingredients that are readily available and instructions that are easy to understand and follow.
There is something for everyone – for every taste. In fact, if you ate nothing but the recipes in this collection, you would be one of the finest fed people in the world!
I will personally guide you through each recipe as together we explore the exquisite possibilities within the domain of animal-free cuisine. You will be introduced to spectacular achievements in flavor, texture, color and aroma as you enjoy countless rewarding experiences introducing your family, friends and guests to your new-found culinary pleasures. You will take common everyday foods and prepare them in new and beautiful ways – in ways you never dreamed could taste so good.
Cooking animal-free will improve your health, extend your life, and enhance your sense of well-being. You will lose weight if you want to and lower your cholesterol if you need to. The only restriction is no animals. Beyond that anything is possible.
So as you embark on your journey into the world of animal-free cuisine I am proud of you for the step you have taken, I wish you good luck and success in your adventure, and a most gracious welcome to MY ANIMAL-FREE KITCHEN – a special world where all your culinary dreams come true!
Happy Cooking, and may the road rise up to meet you in all your animal-free endeavors!
