Is Natalie Portman vegan or not?! WHY DO I CARE?
I’m so confused. Based on some comments on Meave’s Vegan Top Chef post, I got genuinely curious as to whether or not this chick is vegan. Don’t worry, I hate me too. Ecorazzi.com states here (Nov. 27, 2007) and here (Feb. 13, 2008) that she isn’t vegan but then states here (July 8, 2009) that she is. That last article says, “As many know, Natalie is a long-time...

Vegan Top Chef!
Vegansaurus loves Top Chef. Strictly speaking, 25 percent of us write about the show for money, and another 25 percent of us have this problem called “an inability to turn off the TV, despite not actually owning one.” So! When the sixth season of Top Chef begins later this summer, we vegans are getting an extra-special treat, and I mean aside from the return of Gail’s dresses...
Violet Sweet Shoppe
Crystal Rice, proprietor of Violet Sweet Shoppe, has been in business only a few months, but already has a solid baked goods repertoire. As a brand-new independent operator, she seems ready to go. We tried some of her desserts a couple of weeks ago, at her pre-WWVBS bakesale at Little Otsu, as well as meet the lady behind them. While Joel and I went separately from Laura and Jonas, we ended up...
I'm Broke-Ass of the Week! Ow! →
Check out my interview over at the lovable scamp/connoisseur of the fart, Broke-Ass Stuart’s website, where I let you in on my favorite cheap things to see/eat/do/steal/etc. It is all very handy, you will love it! If you’re vegan, you should ask to be Broke-Ass of the Week, it’s good to try to get veganism to take over all aspects of the internet, posthaste. If you’re not...
Free Screenings of Food, Inc! →
Yes, yes, we’ve heard the mixed reviews on Food, Inc. but you know, I have a meat-mouth friend who left that movie and hasn’t eaten meat since so hey, even if it doesn’t explicitly state that being vegan is the best thing you can do (which it obviously is) and isn’t as groundbreaking as we’d like, that’s still pretty all right. The screenings are sponsored by...
New cute stuff over at Herbivore Clothing!
Herbivore Clothing has been making cute-ass shit since about when I became vegan. Because of them, I’ve never wanted to scrawl “Ask Me Why I’m Vegan” with a black sharpie on a Hanes undershirt and call it a day. Not that I’m hating, that dude is pretty fresh. Still, it’s not for me so thank you so very much, Herbivore Clothing. Thank you for making adorable...
Can you help a bunny out?
Your Vegansaurus has an especial fondness for rabbits, Nibbler naturally being the A-number-one best bunny, but certainly not the only leporid we love. Potentially Nervous is the home of buns Bells, Nuage, and Fats, and their caretaker “Alice.” Bells and Nuage are best pals, and Fats is a man on his own. Their blog comprises mostly pictures, with captions that create a charming...
I really had to face the uncomfortable fact that eating meat is not only easy...– Dreamy veg Maryland State Senator Jamie Raskin, from his fantastic interview over at VegNews.com. I seriously don’t get why eating animals is considered “manly.” You’re not hunting and gathering your food like our (tough but also, very stupid) caveman ancestors or some burly...
The Fat Vegan, or OH HELL NO YOU DID NOT. →
Vegan guru/purveyor of meals in a cup Dr. McDougall recently published an article in his newsletter titled “The Fat Vegan.” GREAT. Yet another thing to shame fat people into being embarrassed about their weight but this time from a vegan perspective. Fuck, this shit is enough to make me move to a nudist colony with Bruce Vilanch and have little Pizza The Hut babies together. I have a...

Schwarzenegger mocks animal cruelty legislation,... →
I still cannot believe this man is the governor of California. I was travelling in Uganda when it was announced that he would be replacing Davis and PEOPLE IN UGANDA were all, “WTF? REALLY?” Seriously.
Hell with you, Starbucks
Yesterday Starbucks announced that it would be selling healthier, more natural, more delicious food alongside its enormous coffee menu. Hooray, the people said; hooray. The new items include a banana bread that is “nearly 30 percent real banana;” the Marshmallow Dream Bar—a “sensible” alternative to those wicked, enfattening Rice Krispies treats—a blueberry-oat...
Vegan Prom San Francisco! →
They advertise that it’s, “It’s nothing like your high school prom.” but it will be a lot like mine because I’m not going! Oh snap! High five for traumatic formative years! It’s not that I don’t want to go to it, it’s just that I already have plans. Way better, more important plans. Just like my real prom OKAY? For all you cool kids, it’s Saturday,...
Vote for Vegansaurus in the VegNews Veggie Awards
There was some kind of major oversight at the VegNews offices—Vegansaurus is not a nominee for “Best Veg Blogs” in this year’s Veggie Awards! Clearly, we must rectify this tragedy, and we need your help! We are encouraging a major-write in campaign for Vegansaurus for Best Veg Blog! Our competiton is awesome but eff that, you gotta look out for number one! Let’s get...
San Francisco's FIRST (storefront!!) VEGAN BAKERY!
Okay, we’re only in rumor stages here, folks, but word on the street is that these people are in the process of signing a lease and making all of our FIRST STOREFRONT VEGAN BAKERY IN SAN FRANCISCO piggy dreams come true. They have a website, a twitter account and my undying affection if they can get that bitch open in time for my birthday. WHICH WILL BE EVERYDAY WHEN THERE’S A VEGAN...
I am declaring Sunrise Deli the best falafel in San Francisco proper. DEAL WITH IT. You all can argue with me but whatever, I don’t care what you have to say and won’t pretend to, either. As you can easily tell, I am a popular girl. I was turned on to Sunrise by the good people at VegNews magazine and Brassica Supperclub and they collectively know their shit (read: food). The best...
