The World Wildlife Fund concluded that meat-based diets are the leading cause of species extinction.

Re: “Liv B wants you to make dinner tonight

It's so easy and cheap to live vegan in this city. We really have no moral justification to keep paying for animals to die for our dinner plates.

Since we don't need to eat animals to be healthy, why would we keep killing them?

Re: “Good Parma rises to the top(ping)

This stuff is awesome! Easily the best vegan parmesan I've tried, and a bottle lasts me for quite a while! I couldn't imagine eating spaghetti without it.
