In this episode, I talk about what it's like to be a vegetarian at a non-vegetarian BBQ, tell you a little story about when I was on the Food Network, and share some specific ideas about what to serve at a BBQ: ideas for the grill (including vegetable skewers, marinated eggplant, polenta with pesto, portabello mushrooms, corn on the cob, BBQ tempeh, and fruit), recipes for salads (such as Thai slaw, spinach salad, pasta salad), and, of course, dessert. I also talk briefly about why the safest way to avoid the carcinogenic compounds that form on cooked meat is to not eat it. Heterocyclic amines, the cancer-causing compounds found on meat (including "beef," "pork," "chicken," or "fish") cooked at high temperatures (whether grilled, BBQd, or pan-fried) do not form on plant foods. Just one more reason to leave animals off our plates.

Today I want to talk to you about an animal who has, over the centuries, gone from exalted to vilified. An animal that many people have never met but one who has been much maligned and humiliated on film, in literature, and in our language. An animal that is affected by the daily choices we make but who is invisible in many ways. An animal you may never think of, an animal you wouldn’t think would be part of the animal agriculture business, an animal I hope you have the privilege of meeting someday. Today I will tell you about the plight of the donkey, the burden of the burro and explain why they mean so much to me.

Today I want to talk about this amazing animal that endures a number of abuses by humans and yet isn’t really talked about a lot - even by animal advocates. Today I want to talk about and honor goats. Full of spunk and spark and life, we betray them by killing them for their flesh, by exploiting them for their milk, by exposing them to painful military experiments, and by humiliating them in a variety of other ways. This episode is dedicated to Neptune, a most remarkable being.
