    Filed under: Activism Food

    Heya Heya, SuperVegans!

    Big News! Compassion Over Killing has successfully convinced the makers of Quorn products to ditch the eggs in a burger! Out now across the US is (supposedly, we actually haven’t seen it yet) a Vegan Quorn burger! Yay us!

    The burger is still made from factory fungus though, so it gives me pause, but as much as that creeps me out, it annoyed me more that all their products contain egg albumen, which with whey are the banes of my existence. I’ll try it. Will/have you?

  2. The Subway Crusade!

    Ask and ye shall receive! That’s a thing, right? Well the fine folks at Compassion Over Killing think so, and we want to help!

    Wouldn’t it be incredible to affect change at the world’s largest restaurant chain AND have another vegan food option at the ready?

    Subway (35,786 restaurants in 98 countries) has introduced a brand new vegan patty! Awesome?! Well, yes & no: it’s only available at some of its restaurants in Canada. And the veggie patty currently offered in the US contains egg. Let’s convince them to bring us USers the Vegan one! It will only take a few seconds of your internet play time, swear!

    OPTION ONE (1) (I): go to and leave a comment. Here’s one if you just want to copy + paste:
    I would really really really like the Vegan Vegged Out Patty to be available in the US, really!

    OPTION TWO (2) (II): go to The Facebook and leave a comment. Here’s one for you, so easy!
    Please please please bring the Vegan Vegged Out Patty to the US, please!

    OPTION THREE (3) (III): Tweet a message at them. Here’s one pre-typed by me on your behalf:
    @subwayfreshbuzz I want the Vegan #VeggedOutPatty in the US. Canada is far and I am a hungry vegan person! @SuperVegan @TryVeg

    OPTION FOUR (4) (IV): Call Subway. This sounds extreme in the digital age, but trust me, it’s not. A nice human being will listen to you! Here’s the number 203-877-4281

    OPTION FIVE (5) (V): Send an actual e-mail.
    I can’t fill out the form for you, sorry. But it has pull downs. It’s real easy for a whiz like you!

    Do 1, 1-5 or any combo thereof and you’ll be our favorite reader ever! C’mon let’s do this. I want to hit up Fatburger next and get them to switch from their Veggie Boca Burger to the Vegan one!!

  3. Now's your chance to read all those vegan/AR books you've been hearing about!

    Now’s your chance to read all those vegan/AR books you’ve been hearing about!

    • Still need to come up with another Thanksgiving side dish? How about our latest reader submission: Sweet Potatoes Caribbean.
    • And Turtle Mountain has launched two brand-new holiday drinks: Coconut Nog and Mint Chocolate.
    • Holiday fare often leads to excess weight gain (if you’re doing it right). Need to lose those extra pounds? Check in with Dr. Frank Sabatino for some plant-based weight loss ideas.
    • Speaking of eating, if sandcastle cookies, fried pickles and kale chips spell holiday spirit to you, you won’t want to miss the Vegan Holiday Shop-Up, on Sunday, Dec. 4 from 12-5pm, at the Pine Box Rock Shop.
    • Then on Dec. 10, join our very own Livi Lane in the County of Kings for Vegan/Animal Rights Book Swap for Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary 2.0. Stock up on all the tomes you’ve been dying to read, and grab some issue-oriented stocking stuffers!
    • Speaking of Woodstock FAS, the Guesthouse is open for business! Well, almost. Make your reservations now: Rooms are available starting Jan. 6. I got a sneak peek during Thanksliving, and let me tell you, it’s a sweet place to stay!
    • Thanksgiving is followed by Black Friday, which means holiday shopping is upon us. Want to be sure all your gifts come from cruelty-free sources? The Veg Blog just launched a series of vegan-business profiles, the first of which features Herbivore Clothing Company, and the second, jewelry maker McFarland Designs.
    • Still haven’t made much of a dent in that list? On Dec. 11, head over to the Green Holiday Festival, an eco-friendly, cruelty-free shopping event. It’s $20 to get in, but part of that benefits For the Animals Sanctuary.
