    Okay so my Mom isnt a vegetarian,not at all. Ive been buying her organic milk and cage free organic eggs. I mean I know its not much but since shes going to eat meat and dairy I want to make a difference even if its a tiny bit. But does buying organic milk and eggs even make a difference?

    Hey @rocknrollprincessxx, unfortunately, this probably isn’t making much of a difference at all. Companies that sell their products use the “free range” and “organic” myth to make people feel a little better about buying it – truth is, these animals are still usually crammed together in sheds to increase profit and most suffer the same mutilations as animals on factory farms. :(

    Unless you’re buying the produce from farms where you can actually see the animals and how they’re being treated then it’s probably not making much difference.

    Nope not really :( Actually “organic” and “free range” aren’t really what most people think they are. There are not a lot of standards to put on “free range” and “organic” concerning welfare and the animals lifestyles. Try these great alternatives that are cheap and delish. Good luck!

    Scrambled Eggs:
    Looking for easy tofu recipes? Here is a complete list of tofu recipes.
    Tofu scramble is a popular vegan breakfast dish similar to scrambled eggs. Although this recipe calls for onions and green peppers, try adding some mock meat crumbles, or experiment with different vegetable combinations, such as spinach, mushrooms and green onions. The possibilities for tofu scramble are endless! Try a curried tofu scramble with spinach or this cayenne spicy tofu scramble. Wrap in a flour tortilla for an easy breakfast burrito.
