    The time has come. Ben & Jerry the company with the cow on its logo, has given the cow the day off and is making vegan ice cream. Sure, we vegans have had many reasonable options for non dairy ice creams for years. My personal favorite is So Delicious, but now Ben & Jerry joins […]

    It’s that time of the year again… Jane and I are sitting down to plan our Thanksgiving menu. If this is your first Thanksgiving as a vegan, or if you would like to bring something to the table that the omnivores in your life might consider a reasonable alternative to the ubiquitous turkey, I would […]

    What food do I eat more than any other? I’m not one of those people who tracks each and every morsel that I consume, so I really don’t know for sure that I eat the most. Vegans can’t be as oblivious as omnivores when it comes to nutrition; we need to make sure that we’re […]

    Over the years Jane and I have worked our way through a variety of vegan cheeses. While we’ve been enthusiastic about many of them initially, over time we’ve come to eschew eating vegan cheese as a whole. Ultimately, vegan cheese just doesn’t work for us and the most basic reason is that it is NOT […]

    Last week, I asked you: What’s the number one question every vegan is asked? Of course, it’s: Where do you get your protein? An article published today in US News & World Report discusses the top 9 sources of protein; several of the sources are plant based, none are red meat or “the other white meat.” […]

    Last year Jane and I vacationed in France. I really enjoyed the countryside in France and Paris, but being vegan in France is VERY  difficult. Man cannot live on baguette alone… While most restaurants were accommodating, we basically had to order off the menu at nearly every restaurant that we ate at. I recall, on […]

    I wrote a recent article about protein; the number one question: Where to vegans get their protein? One of our readers, Marko M. Vegano (nice name, by the way… ), asked whether eating a steady diet of mock meats; those alternative meat products recently made popular by companies like Gardein and Beyond meat, is a reasonable, […]

    What’s the first question every vegan gets asked? Where do you get your protein? If it’s not the first question, it’s certainly one of the top three questions. Protein is critical to a human diet, but it doesn’t need to be animal protein; there are many reasonable plant based alternative sources. Protein is built from […]
