Kate writes us about transitioning to a vegan diet, and her dietary concerns as an athlete. Ben recommends checking out Tim Van Orden at www.RunningRaw.com — lots of inspiration and information from a heck of an athlete! Laura recommends some Vega products by Brendan Brazier (also check out his book “Thrive!”) and also Rich Roll‘s new podcast!

Alyx writes us about ethical considerations behind faux-leather and whether the environmental hazards outweigh the good.  (P.S.  We feel it’s fine, Alyx!  Sounds like your fellow vegan was just giving you a hard time!)
