Top 10 links of the week: a hopscotch game through the playground of veganism! »
Your cute pet video of the week! I just love how intense the kitty is. Like, so intense.
Philly.com has a message for you: not all vegans are white! I really never got this stereotype, maybe because I’m from Philadelphia and the first vegans I ever knew were Black Panthers. Of course, it makes sense if there are more white vegans in the US than other ethnicities because there are more white people in the US than other ethnicities. Bonus: the piece features Vegan Mainstream’s mom!
New Yorkers, take the A/C to Nostrand Avenue and get ready for an affordable fake meat extravaganza! One of Vegansaurus’ very favorite sites, Broke-Ass Stuart, is here to guide you through this reasonably-priced TVP adventure!
You’ve probably heard, but in case you haven’t, Mary Kay and some other brands have started animal testing again. Good idea? People are more aware of the cruelty-free label then ever. I hope this tanks them.
From Scientific America, a dingo named Sterling used a table to steal name tags. He’s at some kind of “Centre” that I don’t know about but still, animals are supre cool.
From Treehugger: Global warming could give rise to miniature animals. I am trying SO HARD not to be excited. I’m not, I swear.
National Geographic presents the “Rhino Wars” in pictures. Pretty sad stuff. Poor rhinos.
Fit Sugar has the lowdown on the top vegan protein sources. It’s a very short list. But I like to see us in the mainstream!
Vanity Fair has an interview with one of my faves, Brigitte Bardot! She gets into her love and activism for animals.
“I am not playing political games,” she says. “I don’t care. I don’t bother with that. I belong to no party and I am militant for no one. All of my causes, including the most radical, are motivated by the defense of animals.”
I love you, BB!
Strawberry “crab”-stuffed avocado from our favorite, Vegan Feast!
Featured on Fit Sugar (I KNOW) with 10 other vegan avocado recipes! I will eat all of them in one sitting because I am amazing.
Vegan avocado frozen yogurt! »
I’m a little down today and all I want to do is eat vegan avocado frozen yogurt. This looks to be the bomb, except I’d probably use a good-tasting sugar replacement that’s not gross Stevia. Or maybe I’d just use sugar. Yeah, that’s what I’d do. UGH LET’S EAT AND WATCH TV AND NOT DO ANY WORK FOREVER, deal?
Just kidding! Not really. I’m just saying, this is the type of food people think “those crazy vegans” eat (literally!) all day. Buckwheat salad with stupid cucumbers (the bane of my existence!) is not how I spell fun! It sounds healthy and crap. It reinforces the idea that we are all vegan for purely health reasons—bleh, health! This is why I have to down buckets of gin before anyone believes I’m not vegan for my health. It’s just for the animals! Luckily, I like gin.
Moreover, send me vegan donuts!
Vegan mac and cheese in Fit Sugar. Which, I think, is the online equivalent of one of those fake health magazines that’s really just teaching women that there’s only one right shape to be and if you’re not then you might as well kill your fatty fat self. Seriously, don’t buy that garbage, it just wreaks havoc on your self-esteem and makes you hate yourself and other women. Love yourself, sluts! VEGANSAURUS PSA WHAT!
Either way, VEGAN MAC N’ CHEESE WOO!
