What Do Vegans Eat?  You Might Be Surprised!

What Do Vegans Eat? You Might Be Surprised!

People unfamiliar with vegan diets often assume that they are restrictive and B-O-R-I-N-G.  For example, they think everyone who eats a vegan diet is thin and survives on seeds and salads. It is true that there are many thin vegans. And maybe there are some who survive on salads and seeds alone (although I don’t […]

Turning the (Dinner) Tables

Turning the (Dinner) Tables

Let’s face it, we vegans are a tiny, tiny minority in our society. (Our percentages are practically negative numbers!) As a result, we face a lot of inconvenience, and even some downright abuse, in our daily lives.

A Cheesy Cheeseless Pizza

A Cheesy Cheeseless Pizza

I must say that ever since I’ve become a vegan I’ve pretty much avoided pizzerias. (Okay, so maybe that’s not a term anyone uses anymore, but you know what I mean.) The idea of paying for the most expensive item on a pizza (cheese) and not getting it really galls me. But a few weeks […]

The True Meaning of Thanksgiving

The True Meaning of Thanksgiving

The first Thanksgiving, or so they say, was the fourth Thursday in November, 1620. It being a legal holiday, Irving Schwartz had the day off from his job as an account manager at Plymouth, Bank and Trust and was bumming around the woods with his muzzle-loader. He came upon a wild turkey (not the whiskey, […]

Your Guide to Rationalizing Away the Holidays

Your Guide to Rationalizing Away the Holidays

It just doesn’t seem right, but many vegans will spend the holiday season wracked with guilt again this year. For these folks Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a tree. But the thought of chopping down a perfectly good evergreen, just for their holiday decorations, is something they find most distressing. Guilt over Christmas trees isn’t […]

Carnival Carnivores

Carnival Carnivores

As the sun sets in the western sky, the brightly colored lights of the carnival midway come up. Over the laughs and screams of the children on the Ferris wheel and the sound of the carousel in the distance, a voice can be heard. “Step right up, folks! Step right up!” The crowd gathers around […]
