Of course, they’re doing so in response to the growing number of people with plant-based lifest...

Bugs Bunny had his carrots. Snow White had her, well, apple. But Mickey Mouse? Did we ever see him eat anything? He certainly didn’t eat meat. And soon many more people at Disney theme parks and venues won’t have to, either. Yes, even Mickey seems to have gotten the word that plant-based eating is booming. Starting in early October, hungry patrons ...

The Plant Based World Expo was the first of its kind, as it reflected what Natural Products Expos have, with many plant-based products to explore, only without the bone broth k-cups… This event answered my question of, “why are we not focusing solely on vegan companies?” Apparently, I wasn’t the only one, as 3,737 attendees were reported being at t...

Cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, and sheep would be free to roam in their pastures, sleep in the sun, scratch at the earth, and enjoy life. Animals in today’s industrialized farms are treated like commodities. They are crowded into warehou...

In my youth, I thought that eating meat led to good health and strength. I reasoned that meat was ideal food for my body because my body is made up of meat, just like the body parts of cows, pigs and chickens. I concluded (quite reasonably, I thought) that these foods must therefore contain every nutrient I could possibly require. Logically, could ...

Thanksgiving is best known for gargantuan feasts, football and insane holiday shopping. The excess of food and consumerism can be overwhelming. And the emphasis placed on “the turkey” is enough to alienate (and turn off) any vegetarian from this otherwise family-centered holiday. So, this year, why not be creative, go green and turn “Happy Turkey D...

Dance, pop, salsa -- music floats nearly nonstop from lounges, open-air restaurants and pool decks along the beach in the Condado, the cosmopolitan-casual district of San Juan, Puerto Rico. The spirit is so energetic, celebratory and cheerful that it’s easy to forget how hard last fall’s storms battered Puerto Rico. But the ever-alluring U.S territ...
