Week in Vegan: Beating the Dairy Business, Fake Tuna, and Being Vegan On Vacation

Posted By on Mon, Jul 21, 2014 at 4:00 PM


  • Soy dairy alternatives are becoming more and more popular. People are enjoying their Silk plant-based milks so much, in fact, that stock prices of the dairy alternative are now higher than the dairy company that created them.
  • Here's a great response to the idea that going vegan is depriving yourself of something. You know the only thing I'm depriving myself of? Those horrible stomach aches I got from eating red meat. (And also high steak prices.)

  • Going vegan doesn't have to be expensive. Here are some tips on how to go plant-based on a budget.
  • We're getting closer and closer to real vegan cheese as a Bay Area team continues to "hack" yeast. How is that even possible? Actually, I don't really care if it tastes like real cheese. I'd eat anything that tastes like real cheese.
  • Vegan tuna exists again! I was devastated when Tuno stopped producing their delicious tuna alternative and while my letter-writing campaign didn't work (I forgot to write the letter), I'm delighted to see that vegan tuna is riding again. You have to go to Canada to get it, though. Worth it?
  • It's the middle of summer and, If you're looking for a quick getaway? Vegas may be at the top of your list. Sure, spas and shows are nice, but are there any places where one can get a delicious vegan meal in the heart of Sin City? Absolutely! (I was going to write "you betcha" but that was a gambling pun and I have resolved not to make those.)
  • It's Monday! These adorable bouncing lambs will get your week started off right. (Be the lamb! Be the lamb!)

  • 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.'"
