9 Unexpected Benefits of Going Vegan

1. You’ll spare animals. OK, so maybe this one’s a bit obvious. With over 8 billion farmed animals suffering on factory farms, there’s no question that the best step you can take to help end animal cruelty is simply to leave animals off your plate. In fact, going vegan spares the lives of about 30 farmed animals each year. What you might not know is that eating vegan spares the lives of millions of wild animals too! 2. You’ll live longer. Study after study has shown that one of the best ways to improve your health is to adopt […]

Top 5 places to eat if you’re broke but vegetarian

Top 5 places to eat if you’re broke but vegetarian

Being vegetarian in a meat-centric society is difficult. Being vegetarian while also struggling to make ends meet (haha, meat) as a broke college student is even more difficult, especially given the unfortunate reality that healthy vegetarian food is often more expensive than the unhealthy options. I come from a historically vegetarian family, and have been vegetarian my whole life. Having lived on campus for a year and a half before I escaped the clutches of dining hall food, I understand the difficulty of finding filling, tasty, moderately healthy vegetarian or vegan food at an affordable price around campus. Thus, […]

Vegan Woody Harrelson: ‘I don’t like to bash castmates for their bad eating habits’

Vegan Woody Harrelson: 'I don't like to bash castmates for their bad eating habits'

The Hunger Games star encouraged Liam Hemsworth to give up meat and dairy. Raw food vegan Woody Harrelson has played down reports he lectures castmates about their eating habits, because he hates telling others how to live. The Hunger Games star admits he’ll share his thoughts about meat, dairy and bad diets if he’s asked, but he refuses to be the guy who attempts to change his co-stars. “I don’t find that people come around to my way of thinking,” he tells WENN. “It’s very hard to talk someone out of a burger if they like burgers. I don’t […]

“He just lives his truth – raw, vegan, organic. He doesn’t believe in air-conditioning, so it’s a natural flow of air. All of this helps to contribute to the wonderful unique creature that Woody is. If he eats anything onscreen, that’s a vegan version of it.”

4 Responses When Someone Asks Where You Get Your Protein

Eating an array of fruit and vegetables provides more than enough protein for the average person. In 1984, Clara Peller asked the United States, “Where’s the beef?” This catch-phrase reverberated throughout the country, and as owner of the 10-acre, 100-percent vegan Stanford Inn by the Sea , I still get asked that question today. In fact, it’s a question my wife Joan and I have been asked since 1980, when we purchased the former Big River Lodge in Mendocino to live a more integrated life. We chose to “grow” the inn sustainably (long before the term was popular), and […]

Getting enough protein is the most common concern people seem to have when discussing a vegan diet. They seem to think you must eat meat to get protein when we know there are many items in the vegan diet which contain a great amount of protein. This is a great recipe and article about getting protein. Enjoy.

If you’re a vegan , you’ll often be asked one common question: “where do you get your protein?” It’s silly, really. Plants have protein too. Where do you think the herbivorous rhinoceros or elephant gets their protein from? They don’t seem to have a problem. That being said, unlike meat, no plant contains all nine essential amino acids meaning that no plant food can provide a complete protein. So, when eating vegan meals , it’s important to consider the ingredients and their nutritional profile, which is just what our […]
