Vitamin D or, Why you've been sleeping all day
First of all, I’m a pretty big science geek. I got a microscope for my 10th birthday, and it’s been downhill ever since. But you’ve got to believe me when I tell you that vitamins, and the ways they interact, are FASCINATING. I’ve been looking this stuff up (for how many hours now? Oh lord) and it’s actually kind of awesome. See, it’s not just whether you get...
Give Meat a Break, John Stossel
We don’t normally like linking to Fox News, but sometimes they’re begging to get mocked, and we can’t help but oblige. You see, Fox News’s John Stossel, author of Give Me a Break: How I Exposed Hucksters, Cheats, and Scam Artists and Became the Scourge of the Liberal Media, has a really hard life. If it’s not the eco-fascists denying him his God-given right to eat...
Another day, another great vegan bakesale!
Saturday morning, the day of the SF Vegan Bakesale, I ended up sleeping late because my new thing is not being awake, so I didn’t get over to the sale until the early afternoon. Boy, were things popping! There was of course a HUGE line outside the famous Ike’s Place but there was also quite a buzz around the bakesale tables. There was such a spread! I saw treats as exotic as peanut...
Valentine’s Day tale of love between goat and... →
You’re killing me over here: The lovebirds, a sheep named Chico and a goat named Dorothy, reside at Farm Sanctuary’s New York Shelter and have formed a very special bond. Farm Sanctuary’s National Shelter Director Susie Coston writes of the pair, “They seek each other out, and when they meet, they exchange adoring greetings by rubbing their heads against each other. They spend hours each...
Happy Vegina Day!
Here at Vegansaurus, we love V-Day! We know there’s a lot of haterz out there. And rightly so! Who the hell was St. Valentine anyway? We have no idea!

THE BASICS! Despite their deeply offensive...

Saving seahorses: barehoofed and pregnant
It seems that seahorses, my favorite sea creature with the head of a mammal, are in danger! According to the BBC, they are being traded on the underground market, used for icky medicines and threatened by pollution. This will not stand! The Anglesey Sea Zoo (zoos blow, but this is a good cause so I don’t know) in north Wales is dedicated to preserving these guys (btw, Megan is one of the...
Weird Fish's fried seitan recipe!
If we can’t have it at the restaurant, at least they gave us the recipe. I will refrain from further comment because I don’t want the internet police to rape me with their billy club of street justice but WHO WANTS TO HAVE A FRY PARTY!? That was rhetorical, obvs. Mix in one big bowl: 1/4 cup lemon pepper 1/4 cup Spike seasoning 1 cup soy sauce 5 cups vegetable stock 5 cups water ...

Hire her for your veg events!) and Fat Bottom Bakery (LOOOoOOooOOVE). Excellent piece!
Curious chimpanzees are curious! HELLO CHIMPANZEE!! I want to HUG YOU. Some day—because infinite time allows for infinite possibilities—I will get to hug a chimpanzee, and it will be as delightful as I imagine it. (from Videogum!)
Jonathan Safran Foer on the Colbert Report →
Hometown hero Jonathan Safran Foer (if your hometown is Awesomeville, Veglandia) was on Colbert last night, talking about how U.S. meat production is antithetical to American values. He also attacks “free range” as a meaningless label with no real standards, and reminds us that, contrary to myth, animals are no longer raised by kind families on idyllic family farms, but by machines and...
