Hello friends, We want to announce one very exciting news today…
Our new website is now LIVE!
What makes our new site so exciting? Read away!
Long time no see. We hope you’re still doing great in this freezing snowy winter. Just bundle up, drink water, and patiently wait until Spring!
Anyhow, as the title reveals, we want to share three cool vegan apps/ websites that we’ve found recently. Hopefully, these will make you veg-life a lot easier.
Simply perfect app to use while browsing grocery stores’ shelves. You just need to scan the UPC code on a product, this app automatically analyzes the ingredients and let you know if the product is vegan or not. There are two versions available: One is free and the full version is $4.99. A little bird also told us that 25% of profit of ad money in this app is donated to help animals.
VFE is a world map with places that have delicious vegan food. Yes, you read it right – A WORLD MAP. VFE is a crowd-sourcing website, which allows anyone to add food items to the list. Another great thing about this map is that it includes vegan dishes at regular restaurants or how to make your orders vegan. This makes easy when you dine out with non-vegans. As far as we know, this map is free and open to everyone.
This is a pocket guide that lists common and hidden animal ingredients. Animal-Free is a little bit similar to Is It Vegan?, but if you really want to investigate every ingredient, this is a great tool.
Do we miss any other great apps? Let us know in the comment. We’d love to hear your suggestions!
P.S.: Don’t forget NYC Vegetarian Food Festival is
next weekend TOMORROW! 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Metropolitan Pavilion. See you there!

We had so much fun at last week’s DIFFA event!
To summarize, we brought 1,500 pieces of sushi, the event started at 7:00, and at 7:30 every piece of Beyond Sushi was gone!
Where did they go?? Let’s put it this way, they found new homes, homes in the bellies of hungry guests!
If you weren’t at the event, here’s a gallery of photos from the event for you to peruse:
