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

Vegan professionals will gather in Colorado Springs this coming Saturday to talk about business boosting strategies, vegan marketing and more, and the air will be thick with excitement and inspiration!

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

Cowspiracy: How the animal agriculture industry is destroying our planet (and why no one is talking about it)

And so I was delighted to see that a documentary is being made about this very issue – a film that promises to rock the sustainability world and open a whole lot of eyes to what’s going on behind this disconnect. Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is due out next month. Filmmakers Keegan Kuhn and Kip Andersen joined us for a quick interview about what they have come up against in making this film, the indigogo project they are running to raise funds and more. Can’t wait to see this film!

Ghosts Combine for a Chilling and Beautiful Sequence

When Liz Marshall, director, producer and writer of The Ghosts in Our Machine heard the Radiohead song “Give up the Ghost” it became her dream to incorporate that haunting music into her film; she felt it reflected the tone, mood and message of Ghosts perfectly. She wrote to Radiohead and received artist approval to use the song

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 ()
