T.O.F.U.’s new purrfect partnership

Cats

I was up far too late last night, but it was for good reason. So, despite my lack of sleep, I'm up early today to announce a mew direction for T.O.F.U. magazine. Read More »

Supporting the community

Community

When working more on passion than finance, having plenty of folks in your corner is always a big help. So, with this in mind, we have always tried to return the kindness whenever asked, and even sometimes when we were not asked! Being involved with Berkeley Vegan Earth Day is one of the ways we try to help. Read More »

Why vegan?

Came across this little piece of tour footage we posted while on the road, and I figured it might not hurt to give it some attention again. I can't say I've seen a set-up out here on the east coast like the one we highlight somewhere in Southern Alberta, but I'm sure there are plenty of them all around North America, and many other places. Read More »

Tofu Tour Group Shot

Despite the numerous setbacks from Facebook, and possibly a finicky Internet connection, I finally managed to post the photos from the 2009 T.O.F.U. Tour on the fan page. So, if you have not had a chance to browse them through Amanda's fan page, give them a look now. Read More »

Oh my gosh, there’s another one!

St. George's Market

My name is Kira, and I'm vegan. You probably don't know me. This is because I'm new(ish) around here. I was the creative director for T.O.F.U.'s fourth issue (and also a contributor), but now Ryan's asked me to help out with blog posts, so hopefully you'll be seeing my name a lot more! Read More »

Did someone say pancakes?

Pancakes

Taken from the first issue of T.O.F.U., I still tend to believe this is one of the better pancake recipes out there, but I'm willing to have someone shovel pancakes in my mouth to convince me otherwise! Read More »

Behind the Lines: David J. Parker

David J. Parker

Starting a veg association in any city is likely to be hard work, but starting one in the middle of cattle and oil country seems a little lentil, right? All bad jokes aside, David J. Parker and the folks at the Vegans & Vegetarians of Alberta Association have put some serious work into spreading the word about being veg, and the results have been great. Read More »

Prana gives us the spotlight

The folks at Prana offered to give me a bit of a soapbox to talk about what T.O.F.U. does and why, and I'm happy to see that they are doing the same with numerous other organizations and people. Read More »

Veganic Agriculture (or Lierre Kieth is Full of Manure)

St├ęphane's vegetables

Despite the abundance of evidence against Keith's book, one thing that stuck with me was her argument about farming's inability to truly be a vegan endeavour. Even when labelled organic, there can be plenty of issues with how your vegetables are grown, and in a lot of cases, the methods are not truly vegan. Read More »
