While many of us find ourselves indulging in our kids' Easter candy while they're out searching for eggs on Easter morning (well, not me, because I don't have children, but you get my point), I'm sure that all of us are aware of the real meaning and importance of Easter. In Christian religion, Easter celebrates Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead on the third day of his crucifixion. However, regardless of religion, it is undeniable that the best way to celebrate this April day is with family and friends. But since I know that many of us will still be devouring a box of Peeps on Easter morning, I thought it'd be fun to show everyone how a vegan does Easter (or at least the sweets aspect of it).
These are remniscent of Marshmallow Peeps without any of the gelatin, from Sweet And Sara, the makers of every vegan's favorite marshmallows. These are just too cute; it's almost impossible to bring myself to eat them! They can be found at Cosmo's Vegan Shoppe, but only for a limited time.
These aren't remniscent of anything really. They're just eggs. But they're still just as cute, and just as sweet. It's a little easier to eat these because they don't have faces :) and they too are from Sweet And Sara, and can be found at Cosmo's Vegan Shoppe, for a limited time.
Egg-dyeing has been an Easter tradition in my family for years, though I no longer partake in it. A more humane way of doing this is by using cage-free eggs. That way, you are supporting farmers that allow their chickens to actually roam the farmyard, as opposed to those that confine their chickens to cramped cages, preventing them from ever seeing the light of day. While I'm at it, I would also like to ask people not to bring home rabbits and baby chicks for their young ones on Easter unless they are prepared to keep, love, and care for them, because, more often than not, they are usually not well-cared for, and/or are dropped off at shelters a few days after the excitement wears down.
