  • Real Vegan Cheese and Real Nutrition Science
    It's sometimes hard to imagine what a vegan world might look like, given our dependence on animals for all sorts of uses. Convincing people to simply eat more beans and rice, and wear cotton and hemp will be a big part of it. But so might innovations for products and processes we can't even imagine. […] (...more)

  • The Future of Animal Rights (and Some Vegan Nutrition Tips for Teens)
    When I was collecting stories for Never Too Late to Go Vegan about how and why over-50 vegans transitioned to a plant-based diet, a response I heard many times was this: I wish I had gone vegan a long time ago. I get that. I was well into adulthood before I stopped eating meat, and […] (...more)

  • Disordered Eating, Restrictive Eating, and Ex-Vegans
    The most disheartening thing about the more public breakups with veganism is not just that they are public. I can understand that a popular blogger will want to tell her followers that she is no longer eating a vegan diet. I can see the value of telling your readers that you are dealing with health […] (...more)

  • Vegans Drink Almond Milk Because It's Cruelty-Free–Not Because It's Hip
    One of the big food stories this past week was Tom Philpott's article in Mother Jones on almond milk. Philpott deplores the current popularity of almond milk because 1) It's not an especially nutritious food and, 2) Almond-growing is not friendly to the environment. He says that it's just a bunch of “ignorant hipsters” who […] (...more)

  • Safety of Vegan Diets for Babies
    Vegan diets aren't dangerous. However, people with irrational ideas about nutrition are. The stories of vegan parents who starved their babies because of mistaken beliefs about infant feeding are clear proof of that. It is horrible and it's heartbreaking. But it has nothing to do with veganism. Why is it that journalists can't figure (...more)

  • Low-Carb (But Not Paleo) Diets for Vegans
    Low-carb diets are nothing new. The first book promoting carbohydrate restriction for weight loss, Eat Fat and Grow Slim, was published in 1958. And I can remember the wildly popular The Drinking Man's Diet of the 1960s (which restricted carbs but allowed as many martinis as you wanted). Carbophobia gave way to fatphobia in the 1980s […] (...more)

  • Paleo Advocates Get Vegan Diets (and Saturated Fat) Wrong
      Quite a few people have asked me to comment on the blog Authority Nutrition. It's written by Kris Gunnars, a medical student at the University of Iceland. First, despite the bold title of his blog, Gunnars is no authority on nutrition. His background is the usual one of the self-proclaimed expert: “I got interested […] (...more)

  • Are Vegetarians Less Healthy than Meat-Eaters?
    “Vegetarians Found to Have More Cancer, Allergies, and Mental Health Disorders.” That's the alarming headline from a website called Science 2.0 (which also declares vegetarianism to be a “fad diet.”) They are referring to new research in Austrian vegetarians published in the journal PLoS One. The study compared self-reported health among 1,320 (...more)

  • Keeping Vegan Diets Healthy and Fabulous
    I've eaten a lot of truly exceptional vegan meals in my life. But I have absolutely no trouble recalling the single best meal I ever had (truly the single best one!). Prepared in an ancient restaurant in a little town on the island of Sicily, it was a big bowl of chickpeas that had simmered […] (...more)
