What is a "Compassionate Meal?" Harley Quinn & Kevin Smith Explain...Written by James Zahn
I have always been an unapologetic meat-eater. I've heard all sides of the debate for and against, and I choose to remain carnivorous in nature.

Similarly, filmmaker Kevin Smith has a daughter, Harley Quinn, who has also followed her mother's path - but to the full-blown vegan side of things. The folks at Farm Sanctuary sent over a video that features the duo discussing #CompassionateMeals, and I feel it's worth sharing. If anything, it is food for thought...
