We have all had moments where everything just becomes too much. Too much noise, too many moving parts, too many deadlines, too much chaos. Add in the fast-paced media cycle, and it’s a wonder sometimes how my VegNews team and I can find a moment to catch our breath and relax. Yet we have to, or this tech-driven age would eat us alive. Everyone at VegNews knows this, which is why we collectively and individually prioritize practicing mindfulness—or acknowledgement of the present moment and our immediate surroundings. What my delightful team and I have found is that it is indeed possible to weather any storm, even when everyday factors (life, relationships, politics) feel out of control. And after 19 years of publishing VegNews, practicing mindfulness has been absolutely vital for…

paris in the spring

Paris, home to some of the world’s finest cuisine—and deemed for decades a vegan wasteland—has done a complete 180, transforming into a plant-based wonderland seemingly overnight. French food 2.0 hasn’t strayed too far; only now, cheese plates and flaky croissants forgo the usual cream and butter in favor of plants.
