    Vegan Fast-Food Chains Are Spreading Nationwide. Can McDonald’s Keep Up?

    America’s fast-food industry is undergoing a plant-based transformation and only those who adapt will survive. Led primarily by McDonald’s, the proliferation of fast-food in the 1950’s set a standard for how most Americans have eaten ever since: fast and cheap. Now, with concerns mounting around public health and a growing awareness of the large role of animal agriculture in the climate crisis, many consumers are turning to a new crop of fast-food chains. Vegan fast-food chains have been around as niche concepts for some time in the US, with California-based Veggie Grill being one of the first to pioneer the

    Should you raise your child as a vegan or a vegetarian?

    Vegan and vegetarian diets have grown in popularity. But while they may be good for your health, the environment, and animal welfare, are they good for growing bodies? “A plant-based diet tends to be higher in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants—and all of these nutrients can help lower risk of chronic disease,” Amy Gorin, an inclusive plant-based registered dietitian, tells Fox News. “By following a plant-based diet, you are teaching your child about sustainability and protecting the earth.” “Raising a kid as a vegan or vegetarian has many long-term health benefits when done correctly and really focusing on high-nutrient and wholesome

    Burger King Is First Fast-Food Chain in the UK to Launch Vegan Chicken Nuggets

    On January 5, Burger King locations across the United Kingdom are launching vegan chicken nuggets. The new menu item is available in six-piece, nine-piece, or 20-piece boxes along with sweet chili dipping sauce. The vegan chicken nuggets were developed by Dutch brand The Vegetarian Butcher—which was acquired by multinational conglomerate Unilever in 2018—and are made from a blend of soy and plant protein and coated in a crispy batter. And, like many other UK restaurant menu items, the new vegan option is certified by the Vegan Society. The fast-food chain says it is the first UK fast-food restaurant brand to

    A very vegan Christmas | Cognoscenti

    It will be a merry Christmas for my fellow vegetarians and me. We’ll enjoy the gift of inclusion, spared exile with our MAGA relatives to the crank corner of the dinner table. We can venture this prediction based on last month’s start to the holiday season. America just celebrated “its most vegan Thanksgiving ever,” with plants-only chefs and bakers seeing boom sales. It wasn’t because clogged supply chains limited the number of turkeys available (though inflation did make guzzling tryptophan pricier this year). Rather, surveys by Whole Foods found that more than half of Americans regard vegan holiday options
