Our-Choice-iPad-Blow

As much as I fought to keep printing every issue of T.O.F.U., and in some ways I still am, I have to admit that going digital has its advantages for sure. Read More »

Article Tease: Calgary Review

Calgary review Cafe Koi

Another vegan-friendly restaurant with yummy appetizers is Cafe Koi. The menu has a special section for “karma appetizers” that includes vegetable dumplings, crispy ginger tofu chunks and yam wedges. For entrees, there are karma bowls, most of which are vegan and loaded with fresh vegetables. A good option is the Lotus Bowl, which includes maple chili greens topped with seared tofu sticks. Read More »

Issue V: The Cover

Now that it's posted, I thought I should give a little bit of an explanation for the cover. Since the theme of spring cleaning had been decided for issue V, I felt the cover needed a sign of new life, and what better way to do that then with a plant sprouting? Read More »

Although we're close to getting the full issue done, I thought a little teaser might be fun. I try to keep some things exclusive to the mailing list, and I had planned on doing so with this, but Quarrygirl loved it so much I figured it might as well be available to everyone. Read More »

As someone involved in the publishing business, though not to such an extent as VegNews, I have always battled with several things involving the vegan "purity" of the magazine. The big ones would involve such things as booking a tour date in a non-vegan bar, having people involved with the project who may not be vegan, promoting companies that may not be 100% vegan, and including articles that may not be completely relevant to veganism itself. Read More »
