    We received a comment from one of our readers (hi Addie) questioning the validity of  PETAs list of  “I Can’t Believe It’s Vegan.”  She says she used to use that site as a reference tool, but has since learned that sugar is absolutely not vegan, and since it is in many of the products on […]

    Sometimes we forget that food labels are important.  It gets a little tiring reading labels for all our grocery store purchases.  After a period of time, we feel we’ve come to know certain products and feel comfortable buying them, but manufacturers often change their recipes, and the packaging doesn’t necessarily reflect this.  Luckily many companies […]

  • I stumbled across a list of animal ingredients and their alternatives as compiled by PETA. This list is a great reference point, and I wanted to share it with you, we’ve added it to our vegan resources page as well. Animal ingredients are used not because they are better than vegetable-derived or synthetic ingredients, but […]

  • Jane and I read labels now, religiously. Adopting a vegan diet has ensured that we read labels because who knows what they’re sneaking into your food! The thing that makes me most insane is the milk product in most soy cheeses. If you’re not manufacturing a dairy based cheese, why would you put in a […]

  • Jane used to serve home-made chili and beer to me and my friends during football season. (Have I mentioned how great my wife is?) Prior to this vegan diet we were not red-meat eaters. Jane would have the occasional cheeseburger or pork product (she was completely addicted to bacon when we went out for breakfast), […]

  • I’m a guy. And on Sunday’s I become the typical American Guy. I like to sit around and watch football on TV with my friends, drinking beer. You can imagine my dismay when I read that beer may not be entirely vegan!@!##$%!%! I was looking through Vegetarian Sourcebook and came upon this horrific paragraph on […]
