It was a big year for veganism in America.
There were more than two million vegan restaurants opening, more than 70,000 vegan events across the country, and a slew of new vegan magazines like Vegan Vegans, Vegan Life and Vegan Life Now.
But the vegan movement has also taken a massive hit.
Vegans are losing their political clout, as evidenced by the recent defeat of anti-Vegas campaign in the United States, where the Vegan Independence Party (VIP) won less than 5% of the vote, while the Tea Party garnered 7%.
There’s a new wave of vegans, though, and there’s a growing recognition that the vegan agenda is not just about health and the environment, but about people’s lives as well.
“We are living in a time of transformation,” said Jillian Varela, a vegan activist, journalist, and author.
In America, veganism is still a very controversial topic, but it’s gaining traction.
Vegetarianism has been gaining popularity, and it’s been gaining more attention from the mainstream media and the public, thanks to Vancity Buzz.
As a result, there’s now a lot of pressure on people who don’t agree with vegans to re-evaluate their beliefs, or give up their veganism.
It seems that some people have lost faith in the vegan lifestyle.
And veganism may not be the only trend on the decline.
What Is the Vegan Revolution?
The vegan revolution started with a shift in the food supply chain, where more and more companies started offering vegan options to their customers.
Today, there are nearly 100 brands that offer vegan-friendly options for everything from burgers to pasta sauces, to tofu, and more.
But this shift wasn’t as dramatic as some think.
The biggest change was in the dairy industry, which was first known for producing milk, cheese, and eggs.
Now, it’s a major producer of dairy products and a key part of the U.S. diet.
Many people were surprised to learn that dairy cows are not only milk cows, but also meat.
Dairy has always been a controversial topic in the U to begin with, but that changed in the late 1970s, when animal rights activists were able to convince farmers to stop raising animals and start using more humane and ethical practices.
Then, as the dairy cows were being killed, it was brought to light that the meat produced from the animals was far less humane than the milk.
A vegan backlash ensued.
This backlash has since forced many farmers to change their ways, and now they have to choose between their dairy cows and their meat.
What Is the Meatless Diet?
The meatless diet is a vegan diet, that eschews animal products altogether, and is also often called the meatless version of the vegan diet.
This diet was created by Dr. Loren Cordain, a professor of nutrition and health at Cornell University, in the 1990s, and has become the standard for vegan dieters worldwide.
Cordain says that vegans are able to eat the same amount of meat, but with less calories.
They are also able to cut out some of the processed foods they eat every day, like fast food and processed snacks.
With meatless diets, you are able of eating as much vegetables, fruit, whole grains, nuts, and legumes as you want.
There are other vegans who also claim that meat is a “dirty word” and is harmful to the environment.
For example, a group of vegan and vegetarian health experts recently released a video titled, “Meat is bad for your health and it should be banned,” which states that meat consumption leads to an increased risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.
Even though meat is not an animal, it is still considered an integral part of human culture, and as such, vegans have the right to decide what they eat.
Where Does The Vegan Movement Stand Today?
Vegans are becoming increasingly popular among younger people and people of color.
According to a 2013 study by the Center for Applied Rationality, one in four white people ages 18 to 29 are vegan, while a whopping one in five black people are vegan.
Some vegan activists are also gaining popularity among the mainstream press, such as former Vice President Joe Biden, who became a vegan after years of supporting a “plant-based” diet.
And there are a few other notable vegan activists in the media, like former President Jimmy Carter and former Vice President Al Gore.
Is There A Vegan Movement Coming?
There is no shortage of vegan activism, and the vegan community is still growing.
If you want to get vegan, you should not just follow your friends or family.
You should also take a step back and start looking at the world through a vegan lens
