“Skinny Juices”: Cleanse, Build and Strengthen – a Review

Juicing and blending has become a way of life for my family – it’s part of our morning routine, and it’s not something I usually pull a cookbook out for – normally I open the fridge (half the time somewhat bleary-eyed), and concoct a mixture of whatever fruit and veg we have in the fridge. Maybe throw in some nuts/seeds, a few superfoods. It’s a treasured part of our day, but sometimes it’s easy to get stuck in a rut making morning beverages out of the same combinations. For this reason I have had lots of fun flipping through the recipes in Danielle Omar’s new book Skinny Juices published by Da Capo Press

VeganWALL: A New Social Network JUST For Vegans

It’s getting easier to be vegan in this non-vegan world – some days more than others! – but there is a new tool being launched this September that will make it easier than ever. VeganWALL is being developed as an online community specifically for vegans that will help like-minded people to connect and share information about food, clothing, events, products and more

Cooling Down with Choosing Raw: A Review

I have been veg for so long now I sometimes scoff when people say to me, “but being vegan must be so hard!” That’s before I remember that I’ve been doing this for close to 20 years, so of course it’s not hard – for me. But when I think about raw food, that’s exactly what I think: “That must be so hard!”

Vegan Unite! A New Online Vegan Marketplace Takes the Stage

Have you ever fallen in love with a pair of boots or a scarf, or a wallet only to find out that it’s not vegan? Have you ever wished that you could go somewhere to shop and not worry about checking EVERY SINGLE label, or look up EVERY SINGLE product to make sure it’s vegan, cruelty-free, eco-friendly, etc, etc, etc? Do you have a great vegan product idea and wish there was somewhere you could reach “the conscious consumer”? Well, that place is here – it’s new, and still relatively small, but it’s growing, and it’s growing fast!

Salad Samurai: Salads No Longer Suck!

I distinctly remember wishing when I was a teenager that I loved salad as much as I loved chocolate. Well, many years later I feel like they’re a lot closer in my heart than once they were, and Terry Hope Romero’s brand new cookbook Salad Samurai might just help push me over the edge! In her “New Salad Manifesto” introduction, Terry recounts a situation that ALL vegans have lived through at least once, and likely many times

Veggie Prom Heads West: Get your dancing shoes on, LA!

What do you remember of your high school prom? Whether it’s something you’d like to relive, or something you’d like to re-do, your chance is coming up, if you live in or near LA. On June 28, 2014 the Veggie Prom is coming to Los Angeles! It’s an event that has happened in other cities, but never before in LA. Vegan Mainstream recently chatted with organizers Steven Todd Smith and Jessica Schoech to find out more

Vegan Finger Foods: A Bite-Sized Review

Who doesn’t love finger foods? They’re perfect for parties, potlucks and quick, light dinners – but really great vegan appetizers can be difficult to come by. Being a true lover of hummus of many varieties, hummus and veggies with a side of pickles/olives tends to be my appy of choice. However, a whole new world of possibilities has opened up with the new cookbook Vegan Finger Foods by Celine Steen and Tamasin Noyes

May 31: Vegan Professional Bootcamp hits Colorado Springs

The Oh She Glows Cookbook: It Glows!

I realized not too long ago that I have gotten to the point in my vegan life where when people ask me, “You’re vegan? What do you eat?!” I no longer stammer off a list of foods defensively, but I laugh, truly surprised. It’s probably partly because I have been vegan for so long, and I eat more variety and delicious food than almost all the meat eaters I know

Living Things: A Vegan Vs. Meat Debate Movie

If you’re vegan it’s likely that you’ve found yourself, at one time or another, in a conversation with someone who isn’t vegan, and wonders why you are. You may have even found yourself in the middle of antagonistic or uncomfortable conversations, wondering how you got there. Or maybe you are someone who loves to talk vegan to non-vegans, to challenge the way others eat and live

Take Action Towards Veganism

On facebook I am connected to a number of friends who are non-vegan, as well as vegan, and this weekend I was approached by a non-vegan friend and asked if I could send him a few vegan recipe sites to look at because he had noticed that I have shared vegan information in the past [&hellip Take Action Now ()
