    Magic Vegan Bacon Grease 

    It doesn’t really fit into my diet but I know a lot of potential vegans whose transitions would probably be eased by some magic vegan bacon grease.

    “I’m Vegan” Documentary Shorts 

    My friend Eric Prescott has posted the first five of his I’m Vegan profiles. Eric traveled the country and filmed interviews with vegans from all walks of life. There are many more to come and they’ll all be on Youtube in glorious HD.

    UN official urges vegetarian diet to combat climate change 

    It’s frustrating how often I read “What you can do about global warming”-style articles that don’t mention vegetarianism. So I’m happy that Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, is now highlighting meat production’s role in climate change in his speeches.

    UN data says that meat production accounts for about 18% of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions, topping even transportation, which accounts for 13% of worldwide emissions. The UN included all aspects of meat production, when arriving at the 18% figure: clearing land, creation and transportation of fertilizers, burning fuels in farm vehicles, and the emissions coming directly from cows and sheep.

    The Danger of the One-Sided Debate 

    An anti-vegan op-ed piece in the New York Times has received some fairly righteous debunking in an article by the Times’ Public Editor.

    Rachelle Leesen, a clinical nutritionist at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, told me that Planck’s article “was extremely inflammatory and full of misinformation.” She and her colleague Brenda Waber pointed me to a 2003 paper by the American Dietetic Association, the nation’s largest organization for food and nutrition professionals. After reviewing the current science, the A.D.A., together with the Dietitians of Canada, declared, “Well-planned vegan and other types of vegetarian diets are appropriate for all stages of the life cycle, including during pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood and adolescence.”

    Vegan Dinner 

    Vegan Dinner has great-looking vegan recipes three times a week.

    The reason we chose to begin this website is three-fold.

    Firstly, the goal is to try 365 new meals in 365 days.

    Second, to encourage people to lead healthier lives by demonstrating how easy it is to prepare one healthy, Vegan meal per day.

    Third, to expand our repitoir of meals. We like to experiment and feel that keeping a log of all the things we eat will help us to expand our horizons.

    BK Veggie 

    Burger King has a new version of the BK Veggie veggie burger with a pattie from Morningstar Farms. This is being covered as if it’s an entirely new product but the BK Veggie has been around since 2002. I love this CattleNetwork.com writeup, which is dripping with sarcasm.
