"We can visit hens and see them living freely and eating good quality organic food, but millions of eggs at commercial hatcheries, the sorting of the chicks into the females to sent on to farms to lay eggs and the male chicks to straight to their deaths by methods so brutal that it would be impossible to present on our website.” The future is vegan 😎🌻

Gordon Ramsey's u-turn on veganism has ruffled feathers. The non-vegans think he's cashing in on a trend, the vegans still remember how mean he was to them in the past. What's a hot-headed celebrity chef to do? Is it just me, or does that vegan roast not look *that* great anyway? Still, more vegan options is always good news. The future is vegan 😎🌻
