I don’t know where the stereotype of the unhealthy vegan came from, especially since most of the vegans I’ve met eat more vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts and whole grains than most of the omnivores I know. Maybe it’s just that a lot of omnivores know a few vegans who eat a lot of junk food. [...]

I still can’t believe that we can’t buy vegan cupcakes at Whole Foods here in Nashville. They keep saying they’re going to outsource, but why not make them in-house?
