Glendora had a Reuben and a pumpkin S’more. Madeline has a breakfast sandwich – vegan cheese, bacon and eggs. Maxine had a sunflower burger. Liveliness and ambience abounded.

The following is a quote from Powerful Vegan Messages by Jay Dinshah, founder of The American Vegan Society: “Veganism is a way of living guided by ahimsa and reverence for life. Veganism utilizes a completely plant-sourced diet that is varied and abundant. Vegans are people who choose veganism as a lifestyle. Vegans reject the use of all animal products in food, clothing and commodities and all other forms of cruelty to the animal kingdom insofar as possible. This includes research, medicine, sport and entertainment.” The Glendora Vegan commercials to help the animals are on the Channel 6 6:30 p.m. news, Monday through Friday the week of Octobe

Find peace: go vegan! Would you like a Vegan Starter Guide? Call Glendora. Reminder: you can buy a vegan ice cream cone any day in Nassau Village at Smiles.
