Here at VegNews, we have the best jobs in the world. Not only does our team get to interview fascinating personalities and break important, hard-hitting stories, we are also lucky enough to be the first to try buzzworthy vegan restaurants, exciting new plant-based products, and all the latest cookbooks and media. After 17 years of publishing VegNews, every day on the job is still a thrill, and the best part is sharing all of it with our readers. As my team edited this issue, I heard again and again how incredible it is to be veg right this very moment. While 84 pages of scintillating meat-free lifestyle coverage may seem sizable, we could easily publish 200 pages—daily. Flipping through the proofs of our 107th issue, I am—once again—blown away. I’m astounded by…

the best vegan cities

LOS ANGELES 1 FROM FAST-CASUAL CHAIN Veggie Grill to high-end restaurant Crossroads (order the shiitake bacon benedict and be prepared to spot celebs such as Zooey Deschanel and Oprah Winfrey), Los Angeles is, hands-down, the most veganfriendly city in the country. In Echo Park, after you gawk at PETA’s impressive headquarters in the Bob Barker Building, dine in style at Sage Vegan Bistro (don’t miss the popular Fritto Tempeh Reuben, complete with fried, pickled cabbage). Head to Venice Beach for a raw bowl at Café Gratitude, and don’t forget to drop in to Doomie’s Home Cookin’ in Hollywood for the Deep Fried Oreos (it’s vegan, so it’s healthy). And go ahead: put your hands on vegan James Cameron’s Walk of Fame star and make like a true Tinsel Town tourist. Don’t miss:…

the new meat

Smaller farm operations that tout “humanely raised” or “grass-fed” products aren’t feasible either, as global meat consumption continues to outpace the renewability of our natural resources. Plant-based meats are one solution to reducing the number of animals raised for food. However, giving up meat entirely is mostly attractive to those willing to change their diets for ethical reasons. Until recently, appealing to selfprofessed meat-lovers to consider the environment and animals when making food choices has been an exercise in futility. “But, bacon!” they cry. Plant-based anything is deemed “gross,” and the mere mention of the word “vegan” can spark hostility. When factoring in growing demand for flesh in developing countries, where dietary choices are often a privilege rather than a right, the task at hand becomes all the more challenging. By 2050, the…
