This is something I ran across awhile back and then ran across again and have wanted to cover for awhile but have put off — a pie chart on what would happen if the whole world became vegan. It’s pretty simple, but definitely fun and worth a quick look and share.
Following Oprah’s lead, Martha Stewart had an hour-long all-vegan show this week.
Farm Sanctuary is an amazing organization that I would give a ton of props to. And, news to me, the organization apparently convinced Twitter co-founder Biz Stone to go vegan. Martha Stewart had both Biz Stone and Farm Sanctuary’s co-founder and president Gene Baur on the show, as well as Kathy Freston, author of the Veganist (who was also on the Oprah vegan show and helped lead the Harpo staff of 378 on a one week vegan challenge).
I wrote last week that we should probably cover the link between food and broader issues a little more here on Eat Drink Better. With a nudge from our site director, Becky Striepe, and network founder/publisher, David Anderson, I’ve decided to cover the complicated but important topic of rising food prices today.
The LA Times had a decent piece on this topic recently that included a number of interesting food statistics. What of the following did you know?
In writing up my review of Larabars last week, I actually forgot one important thing. They’ve supplied us with a variety pack (valued at $28) to give away to one lucky reader.
Quick and simple review: I love Larabars. They are very likely my absolute favorite energy bar out there today. Why?..
Which is better for the environment, eating vegetarian or eating local? A team of researchers from Pennsylvania think they’ve found the clear answer.
Numerous top MMA fighters are vegetarian. Why?
I wrote earlier in the week about Oprah’s decision to go vegan for one week and bring 378 of her staffers with her. The vegan challenge is up and Oprah has reported on it, so I thought I’d write an update for you.
Oprah and 378 of her staffers decide to go vegan for one week. How will it go?..
I used to eat a lot more tofu (and soy, in general) than I do today. I really don’t eat it that much these days. But I do love a hearty tofu-oriented dish from time to time.
