Lots of vegan stuff in this week’s rundown. Don’t worry, for the most part they’re are gentle. Other cool things as well.
Vegan Recipes- Amazing recipes with even more amazing pictures. Even if you don’t plan on making all of these, the food photos are beautiful.
Is it vegan?- This tool uses a database to tell you if the foods, medicines, household products, etc. you plan on using are vegan. Although it is based in the UK, many of the items are inter-changable for us in the States. It’s fun to play with.
Farming without subsidies- New Zealand doesn’t have provide subsides to farmers. How would the US do if we followed suit?
Veganism killed that baby?- Try malnutrition. It doesn’t matter if the parents were omnivores or vegans, malnutrition can happen in both diets. It is unfair to blame a vegan diet on the death of that baby.
The rise of consumer power- The tale of when consumers stand up and tell companies they’re not going to take it anymore. (e.g. Masterfoods, Disney, P&G)
Polyface Farm- A video of Michael Pollen giving a lecture about Polyface Farm (the farm detailed in his book) and its sustainable farming practices.
