  • Still waiting on that stimulus? The numbers are in: eating vegan is NOT more expensive than consuming a meat diet.  As a matter of FACT, a plant-based grocery bill will save your household an average of $1260/annually.  
  • Veganism is not usually recommended by doctors for patients with Type 2 Diabetes and painful Diabetic polyneuropathy but research suggests that it should be!  80-85% of research participants in this 25-day, plant-based study reported: complete pain relief, significant weight loss, and a reduction in medications.  This is major, considering the fact that Diabetic polyneuropathy is linked to severe illness, including: foot ulcers, amputations, anxiety, depression, and reduced quality of life.
  • Former McDonald's employee opens a vegan restaurant in the heart of Harrisburg, PA, a city with a noticeable lack of healthy, local, plant-based options.
  • You might wanna know the name, Purezza, because this UK-based vegan pizza chain and their award-winning mozzarella, which rivals premium Italian buffalo mozzarella, may soon be coming to a town near you.
  • If that town is Birmingham, keep an eye out for the first brick-and-mortar location of Underground Vegan, currently operating as a food truck, scheduled to open in 2021 along with the newest outpost of Slutty Vegan.
  • The cereal market is getting a makeover, as plant-based companies expand their offerings to the breakfast aisle.   You can find many of those breakfast and cereal products right here at TheSuperVeganMarket.com.
  • Breakfast could be a good place to start if you've heard about Jermaine Dupri's Plant-Based for a Day Challenge.  A day of plant-based eating is a great goal for people who feel like they "can't live without cheese", since Dupri felt the same way before committing to a fully vegan lifestyle nearly 15 years ago!
  • Vegan veterans may be leading the way but new vegans are popping up everyday!  Fantasia Barrino Taylor and husband, Kendall have announced their switch to vegan eating with several scrumptious looking food posts.  
  • Last week when we called out meat producers for pretending to make plant-based foods, we didn't know there was an official term for it: Greenwashing.  Learn what it is, and call it out when you see it!
  • And call out contradictory Coronavirus chatter when you hear it!  17 MILLION mink are currently being gassed to death after mutated strains of Coronavirus circulated around thousands of mink "farms".  COVID-19 has already been linked to China's "wet markets", and many of the world's most devastating diseases (influenza, measles, chicken pox, and the common cold) have stemmed from similar environments and the forced domestication of animals.  So the killing, or culling of pigs one month and minks the other does little to address the actual issue at hand: forcing sentient beings into a life of factory farmed food production and fur "breeding" for coats and eyelashes inevitably leads to unnecessary death and disease.  If you really want to slow the spread of Coronavirus, no more doing bad on purpose.  Here's pathogen expert, Dr. Greger with the most important and informative presentation we heard all during this 9-month shutdown:
