The Week in Vegan: Go Vegan, Get Healthy, Be Richer

Posted By on Mon, Jul 28, 2014 at 2:00 PM

  • Kim A. Williams is the next president of the American College of Cardiology. A patient inspired him to go vegan when her heart health improved with a change in diet and now he's trying to inspire others to go vegan, too. Trust him: He's a doctor.

  • Sometimes meat and dairy show up in the darndest places. Here's a handy list of foods to check before eating. Who knew that potato chips and sugar might not be vegan at all?

  • If someone you know is looking to be "tough and handsome" (like Cartman), you should point them to this NPR article about some macho dudes who are vegan. What's more masculine than saving the environment? Don't you remember how cool Captain Planet was?

  • Here's one more reason to go vegan: meat and fish prices are steadily rising. Being vegan can actually save you money. What will you do with all the cash you save? Will you go to the bank, take it out in dollar bills and then throw them in the air to make it rain? Personally, I'm just going to put it in savings but you do what you want. It's your life!

  • Did I say one reason? Silly me! I have more reasons for you to go vegan today (literally today): A plant-based diet may help you live longer and look even better than you do now. (You are already very good-looking.)

  • Isa Moskowitz has opened a new vegan restaurant in Omaha, Nebraska. I know that's far away, but have you tried her glam chowder? It's worth the plane fare. Good luck, Isa. (I can call her that because I met her once and gave her a hug.)

  • These fox kits are doing an amazing job showing all of us that we can do anything we put our mind do. Imagine that you're the baby fox and the top of the slide is Friday. Keep fighting to get up there. You can do it!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
