You Don’t Need to Go Full Vegan to Get the Vegan Benefits
Always nice to see news like this in mainstream publications like Bloomberg. While the article isn’t suggesting that you need to go completely vegan, their message “Less red and processed meat and more fruits and vegetables can do you more good than French-fried veganism” certainly makes sense.
A guy bought his vegan date some kale and we’re not sure if it’s cute or kind of insulting
While on a first date a woman mentioned that she was vegan, and so on the second date, instead of a bouquet of flowers, the gentleman brought kale… from his garden. Sounds like a keeper to me.
The Synagogue Vegan Challenge
Could your synagogue go vegan for a year? Rabbi Shmuly Yanklowitz — who has eaten only plant-based foods since his wedding day, six years ago — is hoping that it can. The 36-year-old, who was named one of the top 50 rabbis in America by Newsweek in 2012 and 2013, and one of the most 50 influential Jews by the Forward last year, recently launched the Synagogue Vegan Challenge. Under the program, Jewish houses of worship in the United States and Canada can apply for a grant of $5,000 to be used on food and programs. To be considered, synagogues must commit to a minimum of one vegan event per month.
