The Week in Vegan: Food, Fashion and More Food

Posted By on Mon, Nov 10, 2014 at 4:14 PM


'Tis the season to gain all that weight because Thanksgiving and all the rest of the holidays and you have to see your family and nothing is more comforting than a cookie when your mom is all up in your grill about why you're still single. But if you want to shed for swimsuit season, you might try a vegan diet. New research suggests that it may be the fastest way to lose weight short of just removing a limb.

Once more with feeling: Vegan diets are safe for children as long as parents are proactive and do their due diligence. Calcium and iron are imperative.

Thanksgiving is almost here! If you have friends or relatives nervous about cooking for a vegan, you can tell them that they don't have to reinvent the wheel or make some kind of turkey monstrosity. There are plenty of delicious recipes available. Tofurkey doesn't have to happen to you. 

More fashion news: Haute couture handbags now come in leather-free. (Never call them purses.)

Potato lasagna: a thing. You're welcome.

Johnny Rockets is testing new and delicious vegan burgers. They will still probably be very small, but you can make up for it in fries. 

It's Monday, so here's a stoned owl to mirror exactly how you feel right now.

  • 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.'"
