The charm of this book is that it provides so many delectable vegan recipes that even the most confirmed omnivore will find much to savor. Nut lovers are especially well-served since, absent the animal products that are the major sources of protein for most of us, the authors make inventive use of nuts and seeds, which have plant-based proteins.

GWYNETH PALTROW and her husband CHRIS MARTIN gave their daughter APPLE a feast to remember for her recent first birthday party, when they feted her with vegan dishes.
Friends and relatives - including Paltrow's mother BLYTHE DANNER - gathered at the couple's New York City townhouse on 14 May (05) for a range of vegan dishes catered by Teany, a local eatery co-owned by Paltrow and MOBY.
Co-owner KELLY TISDALE says, 'Gwyn wanted to personalise the cake, so she had a big apple made out of raspberry puree on the vegan cheesecake.'

The FBI says the United States' top domestic terrorism threat is environmental and animal rights activists who have turned to arson and explosives.
Some of the activists also target companies abroad who have policies they disagree with.
Groups such as the Animal Liberation Front, the Earth Liberation Front and the Britain-based SHAC, or Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty, are 'way out in front' in terms of damage and number of crimes, said John Lewis, the FBI's deputy assistant director for counterterrorism.
'There is nothing else going on in this country over the last several years that is racking up the high number of violent crimes and terrorist actions,' Lewis said.
Animal Liberation Front says on its web site that its small, autonomous groups of people take 'direct action' against animal abuse by rescuing animals and causing financial loss to animal exploiters, usually through damage and destruction of property. Earth Liberation Front is an underground movement with no public leadership, membership or spokesperson.

'I run into a lot of people who are instantly filled with ridicule at the idea that someone wouldn't eat meat,' Moby told me last week, when he was in San Francisco touring in support of his latest CD, Hotel. Moby and I are both vegans, so our conversation had naturally turned to meatless living. 'I've been doing it so long that it's just second nature,' he continued. 'Now, almost every city in the Western world has good vegetarian, or even vegan, restaurants.'

Dan Perkins doesn’t fancy himself a designer—but creations from his vegan guitar strap company Couch hang across the shoulders of Nels Cline and members of TSOL, Maxeen, Goldenboy, Purified in Blood, the Knots and Ze Auto Parts, to name a few. Similarly, he didn’t consider himself a proficient musician until his fourth band or knowledgeable about food when he started the Sunset Beach juice bar/vegan sandwich shop Juice For You.

Have vegans avoided bondage until now because they were unable to find cruelty-free equipment? Or did they consciously chose not to slap, slap, slap and tickle because of their ethical lifestyle? As a posting on a vegan blog in August of last year noted, 'There is some great irony about cruelty here.'
