Coming Out

About this Sister Eden Short

This promo piece for a lost Sister Eden episode from 1977 entitled “Coming Out” was recently discovered in a warehouse on our back lot by a scouting crew for TLC’s upcoming reality show “Warehouse Redemption” and was lovingly restored by our archivists.

One day, we hope historians will discover the actual episode, but it was likely destroyed when the original Sister Eden sound stage was destroyed in a tragic fire in 1983 and is feared lost forever.

This ground-breaking television special changed the lives of millions of people around the world, yet was surprisingly never nominated for an Emmy award.

Thinking of Adopting a Plant-Based Diet?

Have you ever eaten a banana? How about an apple? Peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Nuts? Pasta with tomato sauce? Guess what? It’s all vegan! Or as we prefer to say, plant-based. There are a lot of great reasons to eat a plant-based diet: your health, the health of the environment and for ethical reasons.

Adopting a plant-based diet can be easy, inexpensive and feature lots of familiar foods. Unless you are like John who, when he was in college, ate cuisine that ranged from frozen pizza to fried bologna, then chances are you already have a kitchen full of plant-based food.

A plant-based diet leaves out any food that is an animal or came from an animal but includes an array of delicious and healthful options such as all fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains, beans, herbs and spices. On top of that, a lot of regular, everyday foods are also vegan.  Some would say accidentally vegan ~ but vegan nonetheless.

The dirty hippie & the bohemian girl, Sister Eden bloggers who provide a weekly plant-based recipe, wrote a series for us called It’s Already Vegan and outlined foods for breakfast, lunch & dinner, and snack and dessert foods that were easy to find. And we’re not just talking about your hipster-trendy, nutty-granola, upscale grocery stores. You can find these at our local neighborhood chain in the regular food aisles.

If you are thinking about following a plant-based diet you might decide to do it overnight or gradually. Just do what works best for you. And don’t beat yourself up if you accidentally eat something with meat or dairy in it, or if you accidentally eat your sister Lisa’s chocolate cream pie topped with whipped cream Thanksgiving night after everybody has gone to bed. Just get back on the vegan, uh, horse.
