Week in Vegan: Bacon, Bread and a Helpless Dog

Posted By on Tue, Sep 2, 2014 at 2:28 PM


  • Here's a gentle reminder: Bread may be vegan, but that doesn't mean you should eat load after load. Same goes for any vegan food. Moderation in everything is key, and as veganism becomes more and more mainstream, it's important to remind ourselves that a plant-based diet (based only on eating vegan with no thoughts to nutrition) can be just as unhealthy as any other diet out there. So put down those jo-jos and say hello to a green leafy vegetable. I know, I'm mourning, too.
  • Talking to a reluctant non-vegan who thinks they can't still eat everything they want to? Show them this list of vegan foods they're already eating. It's like magic! See, they're not all weird cupcakes made out of carob.

  • Fake everyone out with these delicious "bacon" recipes. They won't be able to tell the difference. And of they do, it's still delicious, so win/win.

  • Cleveland is all about Meatless Monday. And rocking out.

  • Ready to strut your stuff this fall? Of course you are. The colder weather means layers, and there's nothing that says "I look amazing" than a cruelty-free leather jacket. Yo! You look both great and ethical.

  • Vegan runner Micah Risk covers the latest edition of Runner's World. See? You really can have it all: A cool name, an awesome body, and a cruelty-free diet.

  • It's Tuesday, so here's a reminder of what the next four days are going to look like. You can do it. Force that monkey off your back before the weekend!

  • 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.'"
