Special diet: gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free, vegan

Loaded with potatoes, beans, and greens, this chunky Vegan Vegetable Soup is easy to prepare in about 45 minutes. It’s perfect for using up whatever veggies you have leftover in the refrigerator.

Some of my favorite vegan Mediterranean diet recipes include both potatoes and beans. Not only is the combination delicious, it’s satisfying, not to mention economical.

And when it comes to soup recipes, you can’t beat them with vegetables like carrots, celery, and leafy greens. Or really whatever you have on hand.


This recipe uses common ingredients available at major supermarkets:

  • olive oil
  • onion
  • fresh garlic
  • carrots
  • celery
  • gold potatoes
  • canned white beans
  • canned diced tomatoes
  • vegetable broth (or water)
  • dried thyme
  • bay leaf
  • salt-free seasoning blend
  • kale
  • salt and pepper


This recipe is highly adaptable so you can easily substitute the ingredients with great results. Whether you’re missing certain ingredients or want to use what you have on hand, here are some suggestions:

  • Any color of onion can be used (yellow, white, or red.)
  • Yellow, red, white potatoes, or even sweet potatoes all work well in this recipe.
  • Instead of white beans like Cannellini or Great Northern, any of your favorite beans can be used. These included kidney, pinto, black, or chickpeas.
  • Fresh chopped tomatoes can be substituted for canned.
  • Different spice blends can be used such as lemon pepper, Italian seasoning, or Herbes de Provence.
  • Instead of kale, any of your favorite greens can be added such as chard, collards, escarole, or spinach. If you like them cooked a little more, either saute them before adding to the soup or add them before turning off the heat.
  • Or instead of greens, try other vegetables such as broccoli, zucchini, or green beans.


Making this vegan vegetable soup on the stove is really easy:

  • ▢ 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ▢ ½ cup onions , diced
  • ▢ 3 cloves garlic , minced
  • ▢ ½ cup carrots , diced
  • ▢ ½ cup celery , diced
  • ▢ 2 cups gold potatoes , cubed (or substitute red or white potatoes)
  • ▢ 1 can white beans , (15 ounces) rinsed and drained (1 ½ cups)
  • ▢ 1 can diced tomatoes, (15 ounces) with the juice
  • ▢ 8 cups low sodium vegetable broth, (or water)
  • ▢ 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • ▢ 1 bay leaf
  • ▢ 1 teaspoon salt-free seasoning blend
  • ▢ 2 cups kale , (any variety) chopped
  • ▢ salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.
  2. Saute the onion until slightly translucent and soft.
  3. Add the garlic and saute for 30 seconds.
  4. Next add the carrots and celery and saute for a couple more minutes.
  5. Then add the potatoes, beans, tomatoes with the juice, vegetable broth, thyme, bay leaf, and salt-free seasoning blend.
  6. Stir to combine. Simmer, uncovered, until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.
  7. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the chopped kale.
  8. Taste the soup and add salt and pepper as desired.

Ever wonder why the plant-based meals you see on Facebook and Instagram look so mouth-watering and inviting while yours are bland and boring?

Serving suggestions

While this soup is a wonderful hearty meal on its own, you can also enjoy it with some crusty sourdough bread, like my favorite from Bread SRSLY, or a sandwich. Or try it with one of the following salads:

Storing and reheating

Leftover soup can be covered and refrigerated for up to 4 days, or frozen for up to 3 months. Make sure you follow proper guidelines for cooling soup safely.

If it seems too thick when it’s time to reheat, add a little more broth or water to thin it out. And taste to adjust for the seasonings before serving.


What can I add to bland vegetable soup?

If you’re soup is lacking the flavor you’re looking for, try stirring in a little tomato paste or a splash of lemon juice or balsamic vinegar. Start with a little, give it a taste, and add more as needed.

How do you know when soup is ready?

Once all of the vegetables are tender when pierced with a fork and all of the ingredients are heated through, the soup is ready to eat.

Should you simmer soup with lid on or off?

It’s best to simmer the soup with the lid off. This way you can keep an eye on it and stir it occasionally. If you put the lid on, the temperature will rise, causing the soup to boil, and the vegetables may overcook.

Lemon Dairy Free Pasta Sauce

Special diet: gluten-free option, oil-free, soy-free, vegan


Jump to RecipePrint Recipe

Creamy Lemon Dairy Free Pasta Sauce is easy to make in your blender without any oil. This cashew-based recipe is delicious for both weeknight meals and special occasions. Jump to:

Dairy free

Just because you don’t consume milk, cheese, or butter doesn’t mean you have to give up creamy textures in your favorite foods. It’s easy to make all sorts of dairy-free recipes by using raw cashews.


Vegan Mashed Sweet Potatoes

0 seconds of 31 seconds

You can make everything from French onion dip to Ranch dressing to potato leek soup. All vegan, and all smooth, rich, and velvety.

And this Lemon Dairy Free Pasta Sauce is even oil-free. You won’t believe how luxurious it tastes from just citrus and cashews, without containing a single drop of cream.

For a nut-free alternative, try Vegan Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce.

You’ll only need a few ingredients in order to make this easy recipe:

  • Pasta (I used gluten-free spaghetti, but you can use any type and shape of pasta you like.)
  • Raw cashews (You can find them packaged or in the bulk bins of many supermarkets. Or you can buy them online.)
  • Lemon (You will need both the zest and the juice.)
  • Parsley (For garnishing the finished dish.)

For the complete list of ingredients with measurements plus recipe instructions, please see the recipe card at the bottom of this post.


Before you make the sauce, zest and juice the lemon. I like to use a Microplane grater to make zesting really easy. If you’re not familiar with this process, check out How To Zest Lemons.

Then I squeeze out the juice. One lemon will give you approximately three tablespoons of juice.

Now you’re ready to make your pasta:

  1. Prepare the pasta according to the package directions. Drain and return to the pot.
  2. In a high-speed blender, combine the cashews, water, lemon juice, and a little salt. Blend until very smooth.
  3. Pour the sauce from the blender over the cooked pasta. Toss well so every strand is coated.
  4. Divide among four bowls. Garnish each serving with lemon zest and parsley and enjoy immediately.


  • If you don’t have a high-speed blender, soak the raw cashews in a bowl of hot water for 30 minutes to soften before blending.
  • This recipe makes enough for 12-16 ounces of pasta.
  • Leftovers can be covered and refrigerated for up to two days. Reheat in the microwave.

Serving suggestions

This lemon pasta is perfect any night of the week. It’s wonderful for casual dinners as well as special occasions.

I love serving it with a salad that is colorful and full of vegetables such as a Greek salad or chickpea cucumber salad.

It’s also delicious with a simple vegetable side dish like asparagus spears or Italian green beans.

📋 Recipe

  • ▢ 12 ounces spaghetti, (or your favorite pasta shape)
  • ▢ 1 cup raw cashews, (see Notes)
  • ▢ 1 cup water
  • ▢ 1 lemon, zest and juice (about 3 Tablespoons)
  • ▢ salt, to taste
  • ▢ fresh parsley, for garnish
  • ▢ Prepare the pasta according to the package directions. Drain and return to the pot.
  • ▢ Meanwhile, zest and juice the lemon. 
  • ▢ In a high-speed blender, combine the cashews, water, lemon juice, and salt. Blend until very smooth.
  • ▢ Pour the sauce from the blender over the cooked pasta. Toss well so every strand is coated.
  • ▢ Divide among four bowls. Garnish each serving with lemon zest and parsley and enjoy immediately.
  • If you don’t have a high-speed blender, soak the raw cashews in a bowl of hot water for 30 minutes to soften before blending.
  • This recipe makes enough for 12-16 ounces of pasta.
  • Leftovers can be covered and refrigerated for up to two days. Reheat in the microwave.

5 Vegan-Friendly Beach Towns You Need to Visit


by Aruka Sanchir

Sometimes, you need to escape city life and enjoy the beachside breeze, radiant sun, and plant-based grub—and what better time than just before tourist season starts? From coast to coast, we’ve compiled a list of five hotter-than-ever beach towns to catch some rays while devouring amazing vegan food. So grab your SPF 50 vegan sunscreen and cat-eye sunglasses, and let this guide be the starting point for your next beach adventure.


Café Gratitude

1. Santa Cruz, CA

Located 90 minutes south of San Francisco, this college/hippie town is home to VegNews headquarters and, during summer months, is a tourist hot-spot. During the height of the season, this city’s main attractions include a boardwalk full of retro arcade games, nostalgic carnival rides, and groovy concerts on the beach. With the expansion of popular plant-based eateries such as Café Gratitude, Sri Lankan restaurant Malabar, vegan-friendly grocery store Staff of Life, and all-vegan West African-influenced Veg on the Edge, Santa Cruz understands vegan cuisine. Furthermore, weekly farmers’ market serve plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables from the region’s many farms. Stop by Mutari Chocolate House & Factory for ethically-sourced and decadent coconut-based hot chocolate. Finally, don’t leave town without ordering from Dharma’s (a favorite among VegNews editors).


Cookman Creamery

2. Asbury Park, NJ

An hour-and-a-half from New York City, Asbury Park is a popular destination for nearby beach bunnies and beach bros. Start your adventure with a refreshing smoothie and nutritious lunch at Twisted Tree Cafe, where vegan-friendly options such as a tempeh Reuben and creamy coconut berry smoothie are available. Next, take a stroll through the touristy boardwalk before heading to Cookman Creamery for vegan ice cream flavors such as blue lavender and cookie butter. Replete with local musicians and artists, the nightlife in Asbury Park is an experience not to be missed. Before heading to the many bars (Wonder Bar is known for being dog-friendly), grab dinner at local pizzeria Crust & Crumble, which offers many vegan-friendly Italian options. When you think you’ve had enough, popular music venue The Stone Pony, where rock legends Bruce Springsteen and The Doors have performed, hosts live outdoor music.


Spoiled Vegans

3. San Diego, CA

San Diego is arguably the vegan hot spot in California. Start your trip with a tofu scramble and a fresh-squeezed juice at Lotus Cafe and Juice Bar before walking cliffside around the Bay Walk. Have lunch at Veganic Thai Cafe, where a menu boasting mock duck curry and veggie tempura awaits. If you’re looking for a fun and foodie-approved activity, take an all-vegan cooking class at Veg-Appeal, or—if you’d prefer to sit in your car to eat—visit the drive-thru at Evolution and head for the beach to catch the sunset. After dinner, check out vegan cocktail-bar and restaurant Kindred, where fun cocktails with names like Zombie Prescription and Electric Mayhem are the ideal way to end a vegan day. Even better? San Diego is also home to a number of vegan favorites such as Loving Hut, Veggie Grill, Native Foods Café, and the city’s first vegan breakfast café Spoiled Vegans (don’t miss their signature waffle-wrapped breakfast sausage).


The Surfinista

4. Cocoa Beach, FL

Any beach town in the Florida Keys is worth a visit, but the surfer’s paradise known as Cocoa Beach is a crowd-favorite among those in the know. It’s not hard to see why: the ocean views are stunning, and the food is fresh and nourishing. Grab a cup o’ joe at the artsy local café The Surfinista, an eclectic art gallery-meets-surf shop-meets-health-conscious restaurant (wraps, bagels, and açaí bowls are central to their menu). When you’re done with your meal, take a tour of Ron Jon Surf Shop, and when inspiration strikes, grab your surfboard and hit the waters. Next, venture to organic, vegan-friendly restaurant The Green Room Café, where the calming yellow-and-blue interior serves as the ideal backdrop to a tropical menu featuring açaí and endless bowl combinations such as the Big Surf Bowl (featuring pineapples, strawberries, and guava juice).


Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice

5. Lahaina, Maui

The small, scenic Maui town Lahaina is surrounded by numerous beaches with golden-white sands and wondrous whale-watching views. To fuel your body before channeling your inner Moana, head downtown for a plethora of dining options. Organic and locally sourced Choice Health Bar offers a full menu of vegan goodies from kale salad to Buddha bowls to cashew chèvre-topped raw pizzas. If you’re out with children, head to Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice for more than 40 flavors and combinations of shave ice, an incomparable Hawaiian treat. For date night, enjoy a wine tasting or cold beer at Fleetwood’s on Front Street’s rooftop patio that overlooks the glistening Pacific Ocean. If the name sounds familiar, that’s because it’s owned by Fleetwood Mac’s drummer and co-founder Mick Fleetwood. 

Aruka Sanchir is an editorial assistant at VegNews who is eagerly planning her next beach town getaway.

Greek Vegan Potato Salad Without Mayo

Bowl of Greek potato salad garnished with lemon slices and sprig of oregano


Jump to RecipePrint Recipe

Special diet: gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free, vegan

What do you get when you combine small red potatoes, olive oil, lemon juice and zest, and fresh oregano? A mouthwatering Greek-inspired vegan potato salad that goes with just about everything! Jump to:

Potato salad is practically a requirement at potlucks, picnics, and barbecues. This lightened-up Mediterranean version is a nice change of pace. If you enjoy the flavors of dishes like Grilled Baby Potatoes with Lemon Herb Sauce and Greek Lemon Roasted Potatoes, this is the recipe for you.

Why you’ll love this recipe

  • It’s full of Mediterranean flavors yet only requires 4 ingredients (plus salt and pepper) and no mayo.
  • You can make it in about half an hour.
  • It pairs well with a variety of other dishes.
Sliced red potatoes on a cutting board


  • Small red potatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon (zest and juice)
  • Fresh oregano
  • Salt and pepper

Success tip

Be sure to zest the lemon before you squeeze out the juice.

For the complete list of ingredients with measurements plus recipe instructions, please see the recipe card at the bottom of this post.


Making this recipe is as simple as cooking the potatoes in a pot of water and whisking the dressing ingredients together.

Collage of two images showing the steps for making this recipe
  1. Simmer sliced potatoes until tender when pierced with a fork.
  2. Spread the cooked potatoes out on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, and salt and pepper and let them cool. The warm potatoes will absorb the delicious lemony flavor.

Transfer the cooled potatoes to a serving bowl. Fold in the lemon zest and fresh minced oregano, then the potato salad is ready to eat.

Serving suggestions

Plate with Mediterranean Green Bean Salad, Greek Vegan Potato Salad, and Mediterranean Cannellini Bean Salad

Try this salad with your favorite sandwiches or burgers. Or pair it with a few other salads like the following to make it a complete meal:


Leftover potato salad can be covered and refrigerated for up to 3 days. Add a squeeze of lemon before serving to refresh the flavors. This dish does not freeze well.


Can you use yellow potatoes instead of red potatoes?

Yes, yellow potatoes like Yukon Gold, or other thin-skinned yellow or white potatoes can be used in place of red potatoes. On the other hand, russet potatoes are not a good substitute.

Can you use a grater to zest a lemon?

If you don’t have a Microplane or lemon zester, a box grater can be used. Or use a vegetable peeler to remove the yellow outer layer of the lemon and then finely chop it with a knife.

Can you use dried oregano instead of fresh?

If fresh oregano is unavailable, you can substitute 1 teaspoon dried oregano for the 1 tablespoon fresh.

📋 Recipe

  • ▢ 2 pounds small red potatoes, unpeeled, sliced ¼ -inch thick
  • ▢ ¼ cup olive oil
  • ▢ 2 Tablespoons lemon juice, (reserve lemon zest before juicing)
  • ▢ salt and pepper, to taste
  • ▢ 1 Tablespoon fresh oregano, minced
  • ▢ zest of one lemon
  • ▢ Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with one inch of water. Add a little salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.
  • ▢ Drain the potatoes and spread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper for easier clean up. It’s okay if the edges of the potatoes overlap a little.
  • ▢ In a small bowl whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, and salt and pepper together. Use a spoon to drizzle the mixture over the potatoes. Allow the potatoes to rest for about 15 minutes until room temperature.
  • ▢ Transfer the potatoes to a serving bowl. Fold in the oregano and lemon zest. Taste and adjust for salt and pepper. Serve right away or cover and refrigerate for later.

Success tip:

Be sure to zest the lemon before you squeeze out the juice.


  • Yellow potatoes like Yukon Gold, or other thin-skinned yellow or white potatoes can be used in place of red potatoes. However, russet potatoes are not a good substitute.
  • If fresh oregano is unavailable, you can substitute 1 teaspoon dried oregano for the 1 tablespoon fresh.


Leftover potato salad can be covered and refrigerated for up to 3 days. Add a squeeze of lemon before serving to refresh the flavors.

Moroccan Carrot and Orange Salad

White bowl filled with shredded carrot salad with cut orange in the background


Jump to RecipePrint Recipe

Special diet: gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free, vegan

Bursting with flavor from fresh herbs, cinnamon, and cumin, this vegan shredded carrot and orange salad is easy to make in 15 minutes. It’s light and refreshing and compliments a variety of dishes from rice pilaf to chickpea stew. Jump to:

Carrots often play a supporting role in soup, stew, and sauce recipes. But here they take center stage in this vibrant raw salad.


Best Roasted Cauliflower with Dijon Mustard

Why you’ll love this recipe

  • You can make it in 15 minutes (or less, if you use store-bought shredded carrots).
  • The fragrant spices and fresh herbs impart delicious Moroccan-inspired sweet- and-savory flavors.
  • It goes with just about everything and can be made in advance.


  • Carrots: Purchase them pre-shredded or use a food processor or box grater to shred them yourself.
  • Oranges: Cut them into segments by removing the bitter white pith and chewy membranes.
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Fresh mint
  • Homemade dressing: Combine olive oil, juice from the oranges, ground cinnamon, ground cumin, pure maple syrup, and salt and pepper.

I like the use herb scissors with 5 blades to quickly and easily cut the fresh herbs. It even works well when the herbs are still wet from rinsing them.

Herb Cutter Scissors

  • 5 Stainless Steel Blades
  • Safety Cover
  • Cleaning Comb
Shredding carrots with a box grater and in a food processor

How to shred carrots

  1. Use the large grate on a box grater: This method works best if your carrots are large. Peel the carrots and cut off the top and bottom tips. Shred the carrots over a cutting board or plate.
  2. Use a food processor with the shredding blade: This is my preferred method. Peel the carrots, remove the ends, and half or quarter the carrots so that the pieces fit inside the cylinder of the food processor lid. Turn on the machine and push the carrots down against the shredding blade. Quick and easy!
  3. Purchase pre-shredded carrots at the supermarket: This may be the most time-saving option. If the carrots appear a little dried out, place them in a colander and run cold water over them. If you have more than you need for this recipe, you can use the rest of the carrots in other salads. Or you can add them to pasta sauce, rice pilaf, or stir fry.
Image showing how to cut an orange into segments

How to cut citrus into segments

  1. Using a sharp paring knife, slice off the top and bottom of the orange.
  2. Cut away the peel and white pith.
  3. Hold the orange over a bowl and slice between the membranes. This will release the individual segments. Save the juice to use in the dressing.
  4. For this recipe, if the segments are large, cut them in half so you end up with small chunks of orange.

Success tip

Reserve the juice that comes out of the orange when you are cutting it into segments and use it in the dressing.

For the complete list of ingredients with measurements plus recipe instructions, please see the recipe card at the bottom of this post.


Making this salad is really easy. Simply mix the dressing ingredients in a small jar or bowl, pour them over the carrots, oranges, cilantro, and mint, and toss well to coat all the ingredients.

Serving suggestions

Overhead photo of bowl of salad

This salad goes well with just about everything from casual lunches to holiday dinners. And it’s a great choice for potlucks and picnics.


Leftover salad can be covered and refrigerated for up to 3 days. Toss to recombine the ingredients before serving. Do not freeze.


Can I shred the carrots a day before making a salad?

Yes, you can shred the carrots and store them covered in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

How many carrots equal a cup?

Depending on the size of the carrots, 2 to 3 shredded carrots equal a cup.

Should I keep carrots in the fridge?

Yes, whole unpeeled carrots should be stored in the refrigerator in the product drawer. They will last up to a month.

What are orange segments called?

Another name for the segments after the bitter white pith and chewy membranes are removed is supremes.

What does Moroccan food taste like?

Moroccan cuisine uses a lot of fragrant spices like turmeric, cinnamon, cumin, paprika, and ginger. It has a lot of flavor but is mild rather than spicy “hot”.

Super Bowl Adding Vegan Options After Talks with Mercy For Animals


The Super Bowl just got a lot more vegan-friendly! This year, the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will face off in Tampa, Florida. After talks with Mercy For Animals, the local Tampa Bay Super Bowl host committee has decided to serve plant-based meals at hospitality events!

In June, Mercy For Animals’ government affairs and public policy team began meeting with Tampa and Pinellas county policymakers to explore opportunities to increase plant-based offerings in the community. When the chance to influence Super Bowl menus arose, we lobbied the city commission and informed them about the positive impacts of plant-based eating—for animals, the environment, and human health—and the benefits to local economies of offering plant-based options at the event.

This news comes as more and more football players make the switch to vegan eating. In fact, vegan food is becoming more common at sports stadiums in general. Sports fans are making it clear that they care about farmed animals—and are finally being heard. 

Planning on safely watching the Super Bowl from the comfort of your home? Here are five vegan Super Bowl recipes to elevate your game day experience.

Crispy Breaded Cauliflower Wings

These delicious breaded cauliflower wings have only 10 ingredients and are grain-free. Crispy and smothered in a sweet and spicy glaze, these will be gobbled up before half time!

Cheddar and Bacon Potato Skins

These hearty classic potato skins are perfect on the grill. Topped with classic cheddar cheese and bacon, these appetizers will satisfy the whole family.

Macho Mac and Cheese Nachos

This recipe is a touchdown all on its own! These incredible nachos are made with blue corn chips and creamy cheese sauce peppered with black beans, corn, red peppers, green onion, avocado, salsa, and sour cream.

Baked Jalapeño Poppers

Whip up these tasty baked vegan jalapeño poppers by filling jalapeños with cheesy dip, rolling them in breadcrumbs, and baking them until soft.

Sliders with Portobello and Caramelized Onions

Made with smoky marinated portobello steaks, caramelized onion, and basil aioli on ciabatta slider buns, these vegan sliders will steal the show.

While the local Tampa Bay Super Bowl host committee pledged to offer plant-based fare at hospitality events, our work is not done! Our hope is that this commitment will be a springboard for future opportunities to increase plant-based offerings in Tampa, the NFL, and beyond. 

Does your sports stadium offer plant-based dishes? Consider contacting your local government and advocating that your stadium carry vegan options! And click here for more delicious game day recipes.

H&M Is Experimenting With Natural Coffee Dyes and “Leather” Made From Wine Waste

It was over 10 years ago that H&M debuted its first capsule collection made of organic cotton. What felt like a novelty at the time has become mainstream and almost expected; if you aren’t using organic cotton, then what are you even doing? It’s a pattern H&M is hoping to repeat with its latest eco-forward materials, which debut today in its new Conscious Collection.

Ranging from startlingly high-tech to almost-DIY, the collection follows last year’s push into bio-based materials and a move way from strictly-recycled fibers. The most surprising, potentially game-changing one is Vegea, a soft vegan leather alternative made from the byproducts of wine; H&M discovered it through its own Global Change Award in 2017. You’ll find the Vegea “leather” on chain-strap handbags and a few pairs of shoes. Also rooted in nature but ostensibly less complex is a new dye made from the coffee grounds in H&M’s offices in China.

“Going forward, we need to be using more bio-based materials and use more waste in our collections,” Pascal Brun, H&M’s sustainability manager, explains. He’s still excited about recycled materials, but is focused more on “fiber to fiber” recycling, like Renu’s recycled polyester, which comes from actual garments, not plastic water bottles. Similarly, a new material called Circulose is made from recovered cotton and viscose—making it 100% natural—and is making its worldwide launch with H&M. Brun hopes it will eventually become a permanent part of the collection, not just the Conscious Exclusive capsules. “These collections are here to help enable the scale of these new innovations, and make them more commercial [to us and to other brands].”

Still, buying a dress made from recycled viscose or polyester isn’t a shortcut to “being sustainable.” Brun and Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M’s creative advisor, agreed that the big challenge is still their garments’ end of life; recycled polyester sheds micro plastics in the wash and doesn’t biodegrade in a landfill. “In 2020 and beyond, we need to take the concept of circularity to another level,” Brun adds. “It’s the only way to think about our goals for natural resources [in the next decade]. It isn’t just about materials, though, it’s about how we can design clothes to last longer and to be eventually recycled, and how can we involve our customers to have more sustainable behavior? It’s a holistic approach.”

Johansson also name-checked H&M’s garment collection initiatives—you can take old clothes to any H&M store to be recycled or donated—and a few potential new business models in resale and rental. As far as design, she and her team are thinking about longevity and timelessness rather than trends, falling right in step with the luxury fashion conversation. “We’re talking about making clothes that are more durable and recyclable, but there has to be emotional durability, too,” she said. “If you fall in love with a garment, you take care of it and keep it for a long time. The price doesn’t matter—if you really love it, you’ll care for it, you’ll mend it, and when you don’t want it, maybe you can resell it. The emotional feeling is quite important.”

The one-shouldered recycled polyester blouse with an XXL ruffle Anna Ewers models in the lookbook certainly qualifies: It’s covetable and makes a statement, but isn’t so of-the-moment that it will feel dated. The same goes for the easy printed dresses and recycled glass jewelry. By 2030, those might not feel novel at all; H&M’s goal is that 100% of its materials will be recycled or sustainably-sourced by that time. Until then, mark your calendar for March 26th when you can get your hands on the capsule’s “wine leather” bags and recycled-poly gowns.


Ultimate Guide to “Vegan Friendly” Memorial Day Recipes

Memorial day is first and foremost about honoring those who have died serving in the armed forces. That’s why we spend the day enjoying quality time with friends and appreciating life and freedom. However, it’s also commonly associated with food, it’s one of the few holidays associated with food that’s actually usually spent outdoors! Rather than sitting around a big dinner table, memorial day is spent on picnic tables or laying on blankets on the grass by the grill waiting for your veggie burger or corn on the cob to be ready. Whether you’re a vegan or you have vegan friends coming this memorial day everyone can enjoy these delicious foods.

27 Charts That Will Help You Embrace A Vegan Lifestyle

Have you ever thought about going vegan?

Here’s everything you need to know from cooking and baking swaps to super simple recipes.


Here Are 7 of Our Favorite Children’s Books With a Vegan Message


Kids love animals. So it’s no surprise that the vast majority of children’s books feature animals as the main characters. Unfortunately, many of these books still refer to animals as something, rather than someone—so finding animal-themed books that teach respect for animals is crucial to nurturing our children’s natural love of animals.

I sat down with a few parents at Mercy For Animals to find out their favorite kids books that inspire compassion for animals. Here are our top picks:

1. Sprig the Rescue Pig by Leslie Crawford

Sprig the Rescue Pig tells the story of Sprig, a pig who leaps—or falls—off a farm truck. As the little pig trades a factory farm for freedom, his world changes from grim to hopeful. Inspired by a true story, the book is a fun, funny, and beautifully illustrated adventure tale with a happy ending.

*Sprig is the first in a series of farmed animal children’s books published by Stone Pier Press. Keep an eye out for the next book, Gwen the Rescue Hen!

2. Linus the Vegetarian T. Rex by Robert Neubecker

Young kids seem to LOVE dinosaurs, so this book is a great treat! It’s a very cute story with a simple message—“I don’t eat my friends!”—that resonates with kids and will help inspire them to eat their veggies.

3. A Book of Babies by Il Sung Na

Il Sung Na is an incredible artist, and his books are all beautiful and animal themed. One of our favorites is A Book of Babies, which features all kinds of animals going to sleep with their parents—showing just how alike we really are—and is the perfect read just before bedtime.

4. Care for Our World by Karen Robbins

This is a wonderful book advocating for all life on the planet. The last lines say: “Please care for all people, and all living things, with leaves, legs, or feathers, arms, fins, or wings. This is their world and it’s yours and it’s mine. If we treat it gently, it will last a long time. This world is our home, we need one another. Please care for our world, we’re sisters and brothers.”

5. Steven the Vegan by Dan Bodenstein

Steven the Vegan is about a boy whose class goes on a field trip to a farmed animal sanctuary. He tells everyone that the foods they are eating come from animals. The kids are shocked and all become vegan. This book is great because it normalizes the feeling of being the only vegan in the class and gives kids hope that they can change their friends’ minds.

6. Dave Loves Chickens by Carlos Patino

This is a favorite among very young vegans. Dave, a monster from outer space, loves all animals and doesn’t understand why humans eat them, especially chickens. In this heartwarming book, kids learn about how wonderful chickens are!

7. The True Adventures of Esther the Wonder Pig by Steve Jenkins

This brand-new kids book details the adventures of Esther the Wonder Pig. Rescued by her dads Steve Jenkins and Derek Walter when she was only a piglet, Esther has become an internet sensation, opening hearts and minds all around the world. This is her touching story.

Make a Quick Phone Call To Tyson and McDonald’s to go Vegan

Petition Update

Apr 1, 2019 —

It’s April Fools’ Day, so we couldn’t pass up the opportunity for some fun! But you can help make vegan food a reality on McDonald’s menu TODAY with a quick phone call to the fast food giant at 1-800-244-6227, option 2.

Tyson Foods recently announced plans to launch its own “alternative protein” after hearing from hundreds of thousands of you who are flocking from the poultry giant’s cruelty. What that protein will be is still unknown, but with Tyson’s major customer McDonald’s now dipping its toes into plant-based innovation at its Chicago HQ and in the UK, we wondered whether a Tyson veggie burger could be on the horizon for McDonald’s full US menu.

Just over a year ago, Compassion Over Killing’s investigation exposed horrific abuse in Tyson’s supply chain. Though the farm was not a McDonald’s supplier, chickens across the country suffer similar abuse in factory farms.

Since the investigation, Tyson, the nation’s largest poultry producer, has taken some promising steps: increasing its investment in vegan company Beyond Meat, introducing its own plant-based bowls, investing in mushroom protein, and now foreshadowing its own foray into vegan meats.

Last fall, Tyson snapped up McDonald’s major chicken nugget supplier, Keystone Foods, positioning itself as an even bigger partner to the fast-food chain. And in January, Tyson created the position of President of McDonald’s Global Business to focus even more heavily on its relationship with the massive fast food chain.

Meanwhile, as a powerful coalition of animal protection organizations, including Compassion Over Killing, campaigns against the suffering of chickens in McDonald’s supply chain, it, too is taking notice: First, it debuted the McVegan in Sweden and Finland, which was followed by its first-ever vegan burger in the US at its Chicago HQ, along with a vegan Happy Meal in the UK.

Millions of consumers are waking up to the miserable lives of birds in the chicken industry, who are bred to grow so unnaturally large so quickly that their legs often cripple under their morbidly obese bodies, and are crammed by the thousands in filthy, windowless sheds. Tyson and McDonald’s both have an opportunity to leap ahead into the plant-based revolution–instead of being left in the dust.

Spread your wings for these birds, and help make a Tyson veggie burger on McDonald’s menu a reality: Call McDonald’s at 1-800-244-6227, option 2, and politely ask for a vegan burger nationwide!

Don’t forget to let us know how your call went by emailing campaigns@cok.net. Thanks for helping us make compassionate eating business as usual.

Thanks to your support this petition has a chance at winning! We only need 28,701 more signatures to reach the next goal – can you help?Take the next step!


How I Made 5 Different Natural Cleaning Solutions With Only 3 Ingredients.

The Honest Housewife

“You want to do WHAT with the vodka?” The liquor store clerk looked at me incredulously.

“I want your cheapest vodka to make household cleaning solutions out of it.” I repeated myself to her.

Maybe your eyeballs are a bit wide right now. Mine were too the first time I read you could use vodka as a house hold cleaner! But the science makes sense. Vodka is typically 40% alcohol and has been proven effective at killing germs and bacteria.

I am on a journey, my friends. I’m learning so much about the nasty chemicals in our common household products. Did you know common household air fresheners like Febreze and Airwick score D’s and F’s on EWG’s Guide to Healthy Cleaning? GROSS. Clorox also FAILS on their rating in nearly every product. EWG scores household cleaners by standards such as hazardous chemicals contained and if the product clearly states all…

Steamed Apple Pudding

Bad Vegan

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. I do love a steamed vegan pudding.

I’m such a fan I don’t like having to wait for nearly two hours for my puds to steam. So I cheat; I use the microwave to speed up the cooking time to only 4 mins, or so.

I replaced the egg with a chickpea batter made with water and gram flour. Added in some chopped apple, and apple puree. And replaced the milk with non-dairy milk.

So here it is:

The Best Homemade Almond Butter

Feed Your Beauty

The Best Homemade Almond Butter

This week marked a first for me in kitchen experiments. I baked my very first loaf of homemade bread, from scratch (i.e. no bread maker!). There was a lot of kneading (making bread is a full body workout, ya’ll), a lot of waiting, some serious through-the-oven-door watching, and then a whole bunch more impatient waiting. When it was finally done, cooled, sliced, (slathered with today’s almond butter) and eaten, I felt some serious satisfaction. I made bread. Breeeeaaaaaadddd! Breeeaaaaadddd!! With my own two hands.

The Best Homemade Almond Butter

Making your own almond butter can bring you that very same deep sense of accomplishment and satisfaction, but without the upper body workout, blood, sweat, and tears that making bread from scratch entails. In fact, your kitchen gadgets do all work for you. Hmm… maybe that’s why people buy breadmakers.

University Dairy Plant to Close After 111 Years Because Sales Are So Low Thanks to Popularity of Vegan Milks!

University Dairy Plant to Close After 111 Years Because Sales Are So Low Thanks to Popularity of Vegan Milks!
Natasha Brooks
3-4 minutes

There is absolutely no denying that the future of food is headed in the plant-based direction. Meat and dairy alternatives have proven to be so popular with consumers that demand for plant-based food products has risen by 140 percent in just a few years. Meat alternatives, including lab-cultured meats, are quickly soaring in popularity, and plant-based milk alternatives made from everything including almonds, coconut, cashews, flax, hemp, hazelnut, rice, peas, oats, and of course, soy are so popular that the plant-based milk industry is set to hit a value of $34 billion by 2024. Additionally, considering humans do not naturally consume milk after childhood, let alone another animal’s milk, lactose intolerance has led many people to switch to plant-based milks. This major shift in consumer habits has caused dairy prices to drop significantly, leading many long-standing dairy plants to shut down, with some making the wise decision to switch to producing plant-based milks. And now there is yet another dairy plant that is shutting down thanks to the rise of plant-based milk alternatives…

After being in operation for 111 years, Andrews University dairy farm announced their plan to close by summer of 2019.

The dairy farm holds 1,200 cows and is run by student workers. Stephen Payne, VP of Integrated Marketing and Communication, expressed that with demand for dairy being at an all-time low, sales from the dairy farm have suffered greatly. He stated, “In the last two to three years, we have lost between $750,000 and $900,000 a year.”

As for the cows, no word yet on what will happen to them, but the university says they will work on finding new on-campus jobs for the student workers at the dairy farm. The rest of the university farm will still remain under operation.

Industrialized dairy is laden with animal cruelty, separating newborn calves from their mothers who cry out in protest. Many of these calves go on to become victims of the veal industry, while others are raised to become dairy cows and meet the same sad life as those before them. Additionally, industrialized dairy is responsible for gross air and water pollution and contributes greatly to greenhouse gases and climate change.

Andrews University is a place of higher learning and education, so we only hope that this serves as a lesson to countless other institutions that profit from the exploitation of animals and the environment – time’s up, people are demanding change.

Beyoncé Encourages More Than 112 Million Instagram Followers To Go Vegan With Her; Hopefully She’ll Also Now Go Fur Free! – World Animal News

By Lauren Lewis –
March 8, 2018

Beyoncé has adopted a vegan lifestyle again and she took to Instagram on Friday to encourage her 112 million followers to join her.
In preparation for her much-anticipated return performance at this year’s Coachella music festival in April, the 22-time Grammy winner shared her training regime by posting a mouth-watering photo of avocado toast with the caption, “44 days until Coachella!! Vegan Time!!”

As if they needed more motivation to accept her vegan challenge, a fierce and fit Beyoncé then posted a sneak-peek of her rehearsing with some of her dancers on both Instagram and Facebook.

The posts also included a link to the meal-planning service 22 Days Nutrition which Beyoncé and Jay-Z co-founded in 2015 along with trainer Marco Borges who authored the book The 22-Day Revolution.
As per the company’s website which claims to have “the best vegan-diet meal plans for weight loss and clean eating,” the powerful duo “inspired many around the world to unleash the life-changing health benefits of a plant-based diet.”
The website also includes some of the many benefits of following a plant-based diet that are good for one’s health and the planet. Although the most important reason why we have gone vegan is for the animals.
“We know that we need to eat more veggies, but the fact is that most North American diets are distinctly lacking many nutrients that can be easily found in a plant-based diet: fiber, healthy fats, trace minerals and vitamins.,” notes the website which also purports that a lack of vegetables in the diet is also bad for your waistline. “Additionally, plant-based diets are low in bad cholesterol and saturated fats. By cutting out meat and eating more veggies, you can cut your risk of disease, including high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, certain types of cancers, and diabetes.”
The website also points to some staggering statistics for people to chew on such as “the same amount of animal protein, rather than plant protein, requires up to 17x more land, 26x as much water, and up to 50 times the fossil fuels.”
WAN applauds Beyoncé for supporting a vegan diet and looks forward to a time when she becomes vegan & fur-free every day!

Vegan Statistics: Why The Global Rise in Plant-Based Eating Isn’t A Fad


Petition update · TODAY: For National Cheese Lover’s Day, ask Little Caesars for vegan cheese! · Change.org

Jan 20, 2018 — Help make National Cheese Lover’s Day fun for everyone by asking Little Caesars for vegan cheese TODAY! Just submit a comment to the company at http://bit.ly/LCvegancheese — use our sample text below!

Millions are going dairy-free for their health, animals, and the environment — but Little Caesars has yet to catch up with its competitors, including Pizza Hut UK, Domino’s Australia and US-based chains like Mellow Mushroom and Blaze Pizza, that are already dishing up dairy-free cheese. The chain has a huge opportunity to get a slice of a massive, growing consumer market by offering vegan cheese, but it needs to hear from YOU first!

TODAY, tell Little Caesars to celebrate National Cheese Lover’s Day by opening up its menu to non-dairy cheese lovers, too! Just visit http://bit.ly/LCvegancheese and use our sample comment below or a polite one of your own.

SAMPLE COMMENT: Happy National Cheese Lover’s Day! I hope you’ll use this opportunity to serve ALL cheese lovers by offering vegan cheese! While milk sales slump, the dairy alternatives market is soaring–and your competitors like Pizza Hut UK and Domino’s Australia, as well as US chains Mellow Mushroom and Blaze Pizza, are already getting a slice of the action. And according to international restaurant consultants Baum + Whiteman, 2018 will see the widespread adoption of vegan cheese on pizza and burger chain menus. You can attract a massive, growing consumer base that’s consistently seeking dairy-free dining options by offering vegan cheese. Please become a pizza industry leader and add vegan cheese to your menu today!

Don’t forget to email info@cok.net with any response you get from the company. Thanks for helping us spread compassionate eating nationwide!

People should have the choice of vegan or regular cheese.
Cheese from cows milk is poison, full of casine, which is glue and causes osteoporosis, cancers etc.
