    Someone sent me a link to a petition which I think is well worth signing… so I’m putting it out here for all of you to review for yourselves.  The request is that PBS ensure that their cooking shows reflect current USDA guidelines which suggest that we concentrate on vegetables and grains and limit meat […]

  • I’m continually impressed with how mainstream veganism is becoming.  Sure, it’s not always easy to get a vegan meal at a restaurant without “working with” your server.  But it is getting easier.  And the number of vegan products seems to be increasing.  Now, we’re even getting representation in Gourmet magazine.   This week, Gourmet says: Vegan […]

  • So after writing about the born-again carnivore yesterday, I wanted to write a post that promotes a vegan diet tonight.  This is a vegan blog after all! So what’s the first thing people ask you when you say you’ve gone vegan?  Where do you get your protein?    Jack Norris, co-founder and current president of Vegan […]

  • For those of you who don’t know, this weekend is the Super Bowl. The culmination of the 2008 American football season. And perhaps the most watched event annually. PETA’s “Veggie Love” Super Bowl campaign has been banned by NBC. My first reaction was where did PETA get $3 million for this ad? (Super Bowl spots […]

  • Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the US blogged about “Your Plate, Your Planet” (in other words, what you eat affects the environment) tonight.  It’s something I ranted about a few times over the summer. Eating lower on the food chain is a very effective tool to reduce our individual carbon-footprints.  […]

  • Many of you have probably already seen The Vegan’s Hundred list.  There are other ”Hundred” food memes circulating round the blogosphere (The Omnivore’s Hundred, which started the trend; and The Vegetarian’s Hundred).  Generally these a little bit of fluff we bloggers can use a way of introducing ourselves.  Jane and I don’t usually bother with […]

  • I’m confused. I read a commentary in the NY Times Op-Ed section tonight and I really don’t get what side the author is supposedly arguing. Nicholas Kristof starts off by saying: In a world in which animal rights are gaining ground, barbecue season should make me feel guilty. My hunch is that in a century […]

Well, first, we have to nominate Susan over at Fat Free Vegan. She puts out vegan recipes that are (mostly) fat-free, (mostly) easy, and mostly yum. Actually, […]

  • Yes, you read that correctly. According to Alisa Miller over at NursingDegree.com, there are 57 health benefits associated with eating vegan. Actually, she’s listed 47 health benefits and 10 other items of potential interest to the vegan eater. None of this information is new, but it certainly bears repeating. Below are my favorites: 3. Fiber. […]

  • Although we can’t take credit for getting Oprah to try a vegan diet, Jane and I are pretty excited about the whole thing. I feel a little funny blogging about her so much, this is a vegan blog after all, not an Oprah blog (and I’m a guy — next thing you know I’ll be […]
