Behind the lines: Happy Kreter

Happy Kreter Picture

Happy Kreter is a long-time friend of mine, and also most likely the first vegan I ever met. At the time I thought it was interesting, and I respected his choice enough to try and be vegan while he was on tour in Halifax. Read More »

Behind the Lines: Teresa Fisher

Teresa Fisher

Somehow, after my years of being in Halifax, it seems I missed meeting at least a few of the Haligonian vegans. Sadly, Teresa Fisher is on that list. Read More »

Behind the lines: Vegans Love LAVA and Kelly Twomey

Vegans Love LAVA

Kelly Twomey, the mother of Vegans Love LAVA (Leather Alternatives and Vegan Accessories) just recently became a mother to a whole other vegan project, a child. So, it should come as no surprise that she was one of the contributors ("Vegan Parent Forces Child to Eat Nothing But a Whole Foods Plant-Based Diet!") to our focus section on vegan parenting. Read More »

Behind the lines: Lisa Dempster

Lisa Dempster

I'm not sure how Lisa and T.O.F.U. came to be such great friends, especially since we have yet to actually meet in person, but I am glad that the connection was made some time ago. Along with writing several articles for the magazine over the past few issues, including "I ♥ potlucks" in the most recent, I believe I can attribute the lovely Aussie invasion of the T.O.F.U. store to her blog. Read More »

St. John’s City Review

St. John's, Newfoundland

"Pi is another great option in downtown St. John’s. A pizza place with a funky, math- inspired aesthetic, Pi offers not only a vegan crust, but a vegan chocolate cake as well (though the cake is sadly icing-free). The brand new, and stylish, Piatto Pizzeria + Enoteca (piattopizzeria.com) on Duckworth specialises in Neapolitan pizza. The servers and chefs are keen to accomodate vegan diets, and even though they don’t carry a vegan cheese, they will throw some on for you if you bring your own." Read More »

Recipe Tease: Thai Thing

Thai Thing

This isn’t a gourmet meal, but it’s quick and healthy. Its glamourous name around the house is “Thai Thing” and I hereby bestow it onto you. Summer’s vegetables seemed more authentic in this recipe, but autumn and winter aren’t too far behind. Read More »

Behind the lines: Viva Vegan

Viva Vegan Store

Although I have yet to shop at the new store in Montreal (4148 St-Laurent), which is conveniently located just minutes away from one of the best vegan restaurants in the country, Aux Vivres (4631 St-Laurent), I have shopped online with Viva Vegan. Read More »

Behind the lines: Stéphane Groleau

Stephane Groleau and his vegan accordion

Although I have never actually met Stéphane, we have corresponded over the past couple of years about several vegan things. An active member of the vegan community in Quebec, as well as an organic farmer, Stephane was kind enough to write two articles ("Agriculture et Veganisme" & "The World's First Vegan Accordion") in the current issue of the magazine. Read More »

Behind the lines: Kustom Kulture

Although they may not seem like the most obvious vegan-friendly shop, Kustom Kulture has a great selection of vegan lit, and some of the staff walk the walk. Read More »

Behind the lines: Jason Doucette

Jason warned me that his answers to the questions may be a little weird as the family was all down with a plague of some sort, but I think it just made for a more interesting read. For those of you who read Vegan Porn, Staying Vegan and Spawn Better, you probably already know what to expect from him. For everyone else, here is your chance to learn. Read More »
