The Week in Vegan: Sex, Spices and Baby Owls

Posted By on Mon, Oct 6, 2014 at 3:17 PM


Excellent news! Approximately 16 million people in America are vegan or vegetarian. We are a small but mighty crew and we must continue to recruit others (through non-militant means) (that means no sulking at dinner). Here are some reasons why the numbers keep going up.

Can a plant-based diet save your sex life? Yes, at least according to one cardiologist. Couldn't hurt, right? Right!

Moby (remember him? He was cool) has written a new essay on why eating meat is going to end humanity as we know it. It's pretty scary, but it's also not wrong. Have you ever thought about how many resources go into one steak? 

In an effort to keep your fall as full of pumpkin spice as possible, I will be highlighting one delightful vegan seasonal product a week (as long as they keep coming). Here's one now: Califia Farms' Pumpkin Spice Latte with almond milk. I'm down. Now if only some one would make a dairy-free version of that pumpkin spice It's It I've been hearing so much about. 

Looking for some vegan ankle boots to keep you cozy and stylish this winter? Vegansaurus test-drove a pair and I'm sold on the idea that I need these shoes now. Do they even make ankle boots for men? 

Summer may be over, but that doesn't mean we can't relive the magic by checking out these vegan couples who tied the knot with cruelty-free weddings. Get them hankies ready.

It's Monday! May you be as excited about your week as these baby owls are about this camera.

  • 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.'"
