The Week in Vegan: Greens, Goats, and Seasonal Goodies

Posted By on Mon, Sep 29, 2014 at 11:15 AM

Think milk is the only only thing that can do your body good? 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. Yeah, it may be a little harder than just drinking a big glass of cow materials, but it’s possible. Do it!

Want delicious vegan food while on the road? That, my friends, has never been easier. Happy Cow has released a new app that allows you to find vegan fare wherever you are. (Even Modesto.) (I go to Modesto a lot.)

Here’s one more reason to go to Trader Joe’s this week: You must try all five of these available vegan desserts. A second reason to go is that I’ve just learned that the staff at TJ’s hides a stuffed animal in the store so that kids who find it get candy. But they’ll give the candy to adults, too. Trust me.

Uh-oh, Meatless Mondays is still under attack. I don’t know what’s so offensive about kids skipping meat one day a week (and not even an entire day, one lunch at school), but apparently Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples is having none of your sissy vegan meals. He thinks it's wrong and unhealthy,  Doesn't Staples know that Ron Swanson is a fictional character? Come on, dude! 

Get ready for Halloween! Here are all the pumpkin-related goodies you can force both upon yourself and any children that wander up to your house looking for a treat

Speaking of Halloween, have you noticed that many stores already have their holiday decorations out? If you’re looking for some ways to save your pennies for that awesome big-ticket present, here are some ways to save in your vegan lifestyle.

 The week has just begun, but I've already got a present for you! Here's a goat with a song just for you.

  • 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.'"
