James Cameron has opened a private school and it's serving a completely vegan menu. This kind of makes me want to be a kid again so I can take advantage of the delicious menu. At least I assume it's delicious. Anything's got to be better than the lunch room "riblets" I had to eat in grade school.

Can milk be grown in a lab? And if it can, will you be drinking basically all of it while waiting for lab grown cheese to happen? It's called Muufir and it is literally the future.

The Week in Vegan: Evil Pie, Vegan Butchers and So Many Cats

If you bought your pumpkin pie from Whole Foods this week, you may want to return it. There's a recall due to undeclared walnuts (always trying to sneak in) hiding in the desserts. This is potentially annoying to those who hate nuts and potentially deadly to those who are allergic to them. Tl;dr: Whole Foods might be killing people.

The Week In Vegan: Turkeys, Thanksgiving, and Tasty Insects

Posted By on Mon, Nov 17, 2014 at 2:28 PM

Question: "Are vegans obligated to eat insects?" Answer: No, the only thing I am obligated to eat are cookies and cake. What you do is your own business. Pacific Standard, though, has an excellent discussion of whether eating insects isn't just ethical but mandatory for all vegans. Somewhere, a Whole Foods executive is rubbing their hands together greedily.

'Tis the season to gain all that weight because Thanksgiving and all the rest of the holidays and you have to see your family and nothing is more comforting than a cookie when your mom is all up in your grill about why you're still single. But if you want to shed for swimsuit season, you might try a vegan diet. New research suggests that it may be the fastest way to lose weight short of just removing a limb.

The Week in Vegan: World Vegan Day, Best Brands for Leather and Baby Elephants

Saturday marked that annual holiday known as "World Vegan Day." For anyone interested why such a day even exists or matters, here's an excellent rundown from The Huffington Post. 

Comedian Anthony Andersen's really slimmed down lately. What's his secret? i can't divulge all (classified information on a need to know basis, you see), but he told Access Hollywood that a diet that featured more plants than meat ("vegan-ish") has helped him lose the pounds and, more importantly, fight diabetes.

Hello! Are you excited for this week? No? Well, how excited would you be I told you that there's now a recipe for gluten-free vegan pumpkin bagels you can make at home? Not only can you enjoy the delicious flavors of the season, but you can also tell others (who are just sipping on a pumpkin spice latte) that you made your own pumpkin spice snack at home. Artisanally. Checkmate.

The Week in Vegan: Sex, Lust and a Cat Losing Its Composure

Want to live forever (read: longer)? Well, new research shows there's a correlation between eating a diet rich in vegetables (and impoverished in meat products) and lasting longer on this mortal coil. You can say what you want about how eating grass is for rabbits, but I found some barbecue-flavored sunflower seeds at the store yesterday, so I'm good and will also live forever. (Or like two more years.)

The Week in Vegan: Fake Blood and Half-Naked Hunks

Posted By on Mon, Oct 13, 2014 at 12:30 PM

veganweek.jpg

The newest discovery in fake meat is "blood" which is derived from plants, has the same taste and even bleeds like a steak would. You think that's gory? Try remembering the last time you ate meat and realizing that the thing that made it so delicious wasn't the charbroiled goodness that Burger King inflicts on their Whoppers, but the lingering taste of blood. Whatever, as long as it's synthetic, I'm into it.

Well, forget everything you know from those milk ads and check this out: Greens and molasses can get you the calcium you need, too, as long as you’re being mindful.
