Fake meat + salad= One of my favorite go-to meals.
Easy and cheap!
Mini mushroom burger.
We never thought we’d see the day where the guy who essentially ate another man’s face would go vegan, but we were proven wrong in 2010. Mike Tyson announced earlier this year that he has given up all animal products, saying, “I just did a lot of training and I tried to become more faithful in life. I wanted a different life. I felt like I was dying.” We’re happy that Tyson isn’t dying and also happy that he isn’t eating anything dead. Way to go!
We’ve been talking about Meatless Monday for years, but the weekly holiday finally took off in 2010. With Mario Batali, Simon Cowell, and Stella McCartney all promoting the big day, we’re hopeful that Meatless Monday will continue to reign supreme in 2011. Come on, it’s just one frigin’ day!
What’s better than a passionate vegan? A POWERFUL VEGAN (echo: vegan, vegan, vegan). Business Week’s popular article "The Rise of the Power Vegans"showed the world that power isn’t derived from meat and potatoes. In the piece, author Joel Stein outs Steve Wynn, Mort Zuckerman, Russell Simmons, Bill Clinton and other powerful men and women who’ve all switched over to Team Veg. Although we felt the article wasn’t particularly on-point, we’re happy it was written and hope it inspired some other bigwigs to give plant-based eating a try.
We about flipped our lids when we got a phone call from a reliable source telling us that Bill Clinton had gone vegan. The former president and master philanthropist went veg for health reasons early this year and told journalist Willow Bay, “Since 1986, several hundred people who have tried essentially a plant-based diet, not ingesting any cholesterol from any source, has seen their bodies start to heal themselves — break up the arterial blockage, break up the calcium deposits around the heart. 82 percent of the people who have done this have had this result, so I want to see if I can be one of them.” What can we say? Clinton rocks our socks big time!
In other Clinton news, Chelsea Clinton’s very vegan wedding was one of our most popular stories of 2010. From the wedding cake to the rehearsal dinner to all the organic accoutrements, we spent weeks eating, sleeping, and breathing Chelsea Clinton’s wedding. Wait! Is eating Chelsea Clinton’s wedding vegan?
With Starbucks offering vegan snacks, 7-11 trying out vegan junk food, Chipotle grilling up vegan meat and Disney World rocking vegan cupcakes, 2010 has been the year of the vegan option. What’s next on the roster? We think it’s finally time that Subway listen to Compassion Over Killing’s advice and add faux meat to their menu. I’ll tell you this, we’d eat a lot more Subway!
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, actor Isaiah Mustafa (AKA Old Spice Guy) shared the secret to his buff body: a plant-based diet. “Right now, I’m vegan-cleansing: no processed sugar, no caffeine, no alcohol, no animal products and no gluten. I never knew what gluten was before. Now I know exactly what it is, and it’s everything I want!,” said the actor. We understand Mustafa’s lust for gluten, but we sure hope he keeps with the vegan part of the cleanse in 2011!
In 2010 (for the first time ever!), three vegan books hit the New York Times Best Seller List, including, The Kind Life by Alicia Silverstone, Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin, and The Conscious Cook by Tal Ronnen. Tal, Rory, and Alicia are all friends of the site, and we couldn’t be more excited about the success of our fellow plant-powered peeps!
This year, 23-year-old chef Chloe Coscarelli showed the world you don’t need animal products to create a sweet and scrumptious masterpiece when she won Food Network’s Cupcake Wars. During the episode, Coscarelli prepared a variety of dairy/egg-free cupcakes, including creations like Ginger Nutmeg Spice with Date Caramel Drizzle, Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake, Crème-filled Chocolate Orange with Candied Orange Peel, and Raspberry Tiramisu. Yep, we’re drooling.
Although he may not have kept his promise to go vegan in 2010, Jackman helped promote the cause by writing the forward to plant-based athlete Brendan Brazier’s newest book. Says Brazier, “I went over to his place and we had a great chat and he told me how he was trying out veganism for environmental and health reasons and to set a good example for his kids.” We likey! Will Jackman go vegan in 2011? Our fingers are tightly crossed that the answer is yes!
