    'There is no kosher meat': the Israelis full of zeal for going vegan

    There’s a wildcard option that some Israeli Jews have started using when they can’t find a restaurant with a kosher certificate: vegan food. Fresh fruits, vegetables and grains are, by most accounts, naturally kosher and as the mixing of dairy and meat is forbidden in Judaism, a safe choice is to eat somewhere that avoids both.

    Why Dismissing Taco Bell’s Vegan Options is Classist

    Sitting down to write an editorial for Scapi always feels like I’m wading into some controversial space to make a point when no one asked. That’s why I was so excited when I ended up on the Chicago Vegans Facebook page and was treated to a manifestation of why I went Vegan and some of my biggest frustrations with the culture. Over the past couple of days, (and I missed the OP,) the group has been in discussion on “how Vegan is Taco Bell really?” For the most part, the people of Chicago have spoken my truth, which is that Taco Bell is the best option in an otherwise barren wasteland of low-cost options.

    Recent Study Found Plant-Based Diet Decreases Environmental Impact By 42 to 84 Percent!

    As the environmental, animal welfare, and human health concerns involved with eating meat, dairy, and eggs have come to light in recent years, many Americans have begun embracing a plant-based diet. However, some are still skeptical as to whether swapping out meat and dairy for plants actually does THAT much to help our Earth. They wonder, does following a plant-based diet significantly reduce environmental impact as compared to eating in the traditional, meat-centric American way?

    When you think of what NFL players eat, you might imagine hulking athletes tearing into juicy steaks and scarfing fattening food. Perhaps it's not so far from the truth: ESPN recently reported it takes nearly 600 pounds of beef to feed the Buffalo Bills for a week, and that's not even counting chicken (700 pounds) and fish.

    Stop Picking On Vegans, You Weirdos

    A few weeks ago, William Sitwell, the editor of Waitrose Food — a monthly magazine published by a British supermarket chain — decided to leave the mag after an email exchange in which he wrote about hunting and killing vegans went viral. Naturally, this led a lot of people to weigh in on veganism. The general consensus on Twitter seemed to be that vegans do, in fact, suck. Like really suck. Like Hoover-manufactured-a-sex-robot levels of sucking. Because now they made some nice British man lose his job. Those non-flesh eating monsters!

    Can Americans eat less meat? It’s looking promising

    The “Missing Pathways to 1.5°C” report is part of a wider body of scientific research connecting the dots between eating animals and our rapidly changing climate. Report co-author and College of the Atlantic professor Doreen Stabinsky, Ph.D., told me that climate scientists are not so much frustrated as “really freaked out” by the inaction of policy makers and the general public, who continue to eat animal-based diets.

    OPINION: Don't Be Embarrassed By Vegan Activism - It's Not About You

    There are many types of vegan but a new one is on the rise - the Embarrassed Vegan. These permanently red-faced plant-munchers seem to be ashamed of absolutely everything. An activist appears on television? Embarrassed Vegan thinks he was too aggressive. Someone posts the truth about animal slaughter on social media? Embarrassed Vegan thinks that will just harden people against us. Liberators save some hens' lives? Embarrassed Vegan thinks that gives us all a bad name, actually.
