Rhode Island fights ODs with ad that asks: ‘Do you know your dealer is a vegan?’ – New York Post

Posted: July 4, 2020 at 4:54 pm

without comments

Rhode Island is fighting a sharp uptick in accidental ODs with a provocative online ad campaign Do you know your drug dealer is a vegan? and a fistful of cash to get the message out.

The $500,000 campaign, paid for by the states behavioral healthcare department, targets users who may not know that their dealer could be selling fentanyl and calling it heroin or some other drug.

The ads ask: How well do you know the person who sells you cocaine? Do you trust theres no illegal fentanyl in there? Did you know your drug dealer is vegan?

The point of the campaign is to get people to think about the serious and very often life-threatening consequences of using illicit substances that contain fentanyl a risk of which both the dealer and the user may not be appropriately aware, department spokeswoman Linda Reilly told

Rhode Island saw a 22 percent spike in accidental drug overdoses in the first quarter of this year.

[WATCH] Can’t Believe It’s Vegan: Pressed BBQ Oyster Mushrooms – The Source Magazine

Posted: at 4:54 pm

without comments

Are you interested in veering into the vegan lifestyle but dont know how to make a healthy and tasty meal that will satisfy your tastebuds?

Transitioning into a healthier lifestyle is definitely a challenge when we grew up with certain eating habits. Most people tend to enjoy the seasonings, fattiness and smokiness that comes with eating meat. If you took those factors away and offered them raw meat it probably wouldnt be as appealing.

Oyster mushrooms are a vegan favorite because of its delicate texture and ability to transform. Fried Oyster Mushrooms or sauteed oyster mushrooms are popular choices. A cup of raw oyster mushrooms has 28 calories, 3 grams of protein, 5 grams of carbohydrates, and zero grams of fat. They are a good source of essential vitamins and minerals like riboflavin, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, and copper. The mushrooms have broad, thin, oyster- or fan-shaped caps and are white, gray, or tan, with gills lining the underside. The caps are sometimes frilly-edged and can be found in clusters of small mushrooms or individually as larger mushrooms. Vegan chef Derek Sarno created an innovative press-and-sear technique that capitalizes on meat-like flavor. Pressing the mushrooms between 2 cast irons creates an incredible fatty-like burnt edge that changes the vegan game.

Once pressed and seared, you can serve the charred meat-like mushrooms with your favorite sauce and a knife and fork. You can slice them up to use in a sandwich, top over a quinoa bowl with pickled red onions and kale or skewer them and serve them dry with BBQ sauce .

Watch the technique below!

Haters gonna hateand lunch can be tricky enough as it is, even if you haven't taken all animal foods off the table. I mean, you want something that is both easy to make in advance and interesting enough that you'll actually look forward to it all morning long. Plus, it's gotta be decently nutritiousunless of course you want to feel sluggish all afternoon.

Well, guess what: Limited as you may think they are, vegan lunches check all of these boxesand pretty easily. Vegan meals can be very meal prep-friendly because preparing veggies and plant-based sources of protein is simple and doesn't require a ton of time in the kitchen, says nutritionist Maggie Michalczyk, RD. "Plus, most of the components (with the exception of some veggies) will last for a few days.

Her one major tip for preparing vegan lunches? Make sure you incorporate a source of plant-based protein, so that the meal has more staying power. Michalczyk recommends building your lunch around a staple like chickpeas, quinoa, chickpea pasta, lentils, grains, or nuts and seeds.

Another plus: You don't even need to fire up your stovetop or oven to prep most vegan proteins. (Three cheers for canned beans.)

22-Year-Old Vegan Chef Starts Project to Support Black-Led Vegan Events, Pop-ups, and Entrepreneurs in Minneapolis – VegNews

Posted: at 4:54 pm

without comments

Vegan chef and entrepreneur Mykela Jackson recently launched an initiative to support Black-owned vegan businesses and entrepreneurs in creating community events in Minneapolis that focus on the enrichments of Black communities. Jacksons goal is to work collectively with other Black vegan entrepreneurs to create accessible and sustainable food systems in Black neighborhoods, specifically in Northside Minneapolis. The 22-year-old founder of Keikos Kitchen and Keikos Electric Herbs has so far raised more than $5,00025 percent of her goalthrough a GoFundMe campaign to fund the initiative. She has also created a group, the Black Enrichment Collective, to plan and organize events. The first event is being planned for the end of July to teach the community about the plant-based diet, sustainable food systems, and holistic health and wellness.

My mission has always been to inform my people on the benefits of an alkaline plant-based diet and redefine the term plant-based because the vegan community hasnt been entirely welcoming, Jackson told VegNews. Theres always been a Black-led plant-based movement happening in Minneapolis; we just havent had the support to make things happen. Now is the time. Black revolutions need to be led by Black people, and its time to make way for that.

As part of the initiative, Jackson also hopes to create co-op spaces in low-income neighborhoods that provide essential food resources. This project will take a lot of capital, so we invite white-led organizations to hit pause on business-as-usual and reinvest their time and resources in defense of Black lives, Jackson said. These funds are going to create generational wealth and stability to many families in the very near future.

New Vegan Documentary They’re Trying to Kill Us Exposes Racism in the Food System – VegOut Media LLC

Posted: at 4:54 pm

A new documentary by John Lewis (aka Badass Vegan) unveils the racism that lies within the food industry.

Have you ever wondered why healthy food is less available in communities of color? And not only that but why BIPOC are more susceptible to disease? These directly-related hard truths are built on an unjust food system that is exposed in the new documentary Theyre Trying to Kill Us.

John Lewis is a Black vegan filmmaker and Ferguson native who has witnessed and experienced this issue first-hand. Lewis shared, Even though Ive been involved in athletics and sports since I was a little kid, I did reach a state of childhood obesity where I was 315 pounds as a freshman in high school. Many years later, I found out that it was not only the lack of activity that led to my obesity, but it was the foods I was eating at the time. I started my vegan journey once my mother was diagnosed with colon cancer. After I did some research, I saw that animal protein wasnt just a cause of cancers but it was also the cause of many diseases within the human body and thats what led me down my journey to becoming a filmmaker in pointing out what Ive learned along the way to help out more people.

For this documentary, Lewis teamed up with Keegan Kuhn, the co-director of Cowspiracy and What the Health. Lewis told us they met a few years back at a festival. I had a booth for my protein shake, Vegan Smart, and he had a booth for his documentary at the time, Cowspiracy. When I walked over to the booth, he actually knew who I was and it just became a good friendship from there. Years later, Kuhn reached out to Lewis about working together on a documentary. Kuhn expressed a desire to reach more people with this documentary but didnt know how to do so.

Thats when Lewis suggested the idea of using hip-hop. Hip-hop really runs the world and if we can appeal to the people who love it, he shared, then they would be more willing to listen to the message. Theyre Trying to Kill Us will feature interviews with numerous hip-hop artists, public figures, and doctors as they discuss veganism, health, poverty, systemic racism, and more. Ne-Yo, Raury, TxTHEWAY, Lola Monroe, King Los, Dame Dash, Grey, Angela Yee, Dr. Neal Barnard, and John Salley are some of the guests who make an appearance.

When we asked Lewis what message he hopes to get across with Theyre Trying to Kill Us, he told us, This documentary is solution-based. The main purpose of this is to actually show people that they have a way out if they use a plan of action. I want people to see that there is a way out from the dark and dismal portrayal of health that has been shown to us in the past.

Theyre Trying to Kill Us is set to be released by the end of the year. They have not yet announced what platforms it will be available on. For the most recent updates, follow @theyretryingtokillusfilm on Instagram.

Slutty Vegan Founder Pinky Cole Is Walking The Walk With Her Justice Efforts – Forbes

Posted: at 4:54 pm

without comments

Pinky Cole (right), founder of Slutty Vegan, poses for a selfie with a fan.

Last Tuesday, more than 2,000 people waited in a mile-long line along Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard in Atlantas West End. Nothing, not even the 90-degree weather, could deter them from the promise of a free burger, fries and drink (and mask, for those not wearing one) from Slutty Vegan, the plant-based burger joint thats been serving even the most dedicated carnivores since 2018.

The line during Slutty Vegan's free burger giveaway.

The on-the-house food was courtesy of a few of the restaurants celebrity stalwartsLala Anthony, Gabrielle Union, Chris Paul and Ludacriswho spent more than $15,000 to buy out the restaurant for a day after a slew of one-star ratings described the restaurant as being anti-police and called for it to shut down. The negative reviews were left in response to Slutty Vegans founder, Pinky Cole, announcing she would be partnering with Clark Atlanta University to provide the children of police brutality victim Rashard Brooks with $600,000 worth of scholarships to the historically black university, which happens to be Coles alma mater.

Cole tells Forbes that Slutty Vegans fans took it upon themselves to inundate review sites with more than 20,000 positive reviews to overshadow the poor ones. This weeks buyout was just the icing on the cake.

The bigger lesson here is when a business does a lot for the people, those people will make sure that the business is protected, Cole says. That's the definition of love and unity that we need to see more of.

Cole is no stranger to community philanthropy. Growing up, her Jamaican mother had an open-door policy at home and provided free meals to people in the neighborhood. At Clark Atlanta University, where Cole was crowned queen of her class, she spearheaded a program called Selfless to help promote community service at the school.

Shortly after founding Slutty Vegan in 2018, she launched the business philanthropic arm, the Pinky Cole Foundation. The foundation recently partnered with Impossible Foods and rapper Jermaine Dupri to launch Votenik, a nationwide campaign that uses pop up food trucks to encourage voter turnout at sites in communities where voting is traditionally low.

We are coming up with ways to make the whole voting system cool so that young people will want to be a part of it, says Cole.

Her latest project, which is slated to launch in August, involves working with Black-owned life insurance company Atlanta Life to help provide life insurance for Black male residents throughout the city in an effort to close the generational gap, says Cole.

Slutty Vegan will soon be feeding more mouths across Atlanta: Cole will be opening up two additional locations later this summer in Old Fourth Ward, the historic section best known as the neighborhood where Martin Luther King Jr. spent his childhood.

Shes still catching her breath about it all. What started as an idea formed in her two-bedroom apartment in July 2018 will soon blossom into a franchise with national philanthropic influence. But in many ways, Coles not surprised. Giving back has always been in her bloodand she intends to keep it part of Slutty Vegans identity as the concept continues to evolve.

Yes, the food is good, says Cole, but it's bigger than food. It's really about using our platform for good. We're doing the work. We're putting our money where our mouth is.

Lizzo shares what she eats in a day ‘as a new vegan’ – TODAY

Posted: at 4:54 pm

without comments

Lizzos new diet has her feeling, she says, very lit and full.

The 32-year-old singer, songwriter and flutist took to TikTok to share what she eats in a day as a new vegan, saying that shes enjoying exploring flavors from plants and plant-based proteins.

Every journey is personal & deserves to be celebrated," she captioned the video.

And from the looks of it, her meals and snacks are worthy of celebration, too. In the video, she shares clips of all the healthy and colorful food she ate during one day, adding a disclaimer that this isnt what every day looks like, but it's a pretty average one.

Trending stories,celebrity news and all the best of TODAY.

First up on her days menu is a refreshing green breakfast smoothie, adding that she typically makes her morning smoothies with coconut water, kale or spinach and frozen fruit.

For lunch, she whips up a salad that she says she loves to make. This one has kale, red cabbage, some broccoli and a slice of avocado, some white onions and some carrots, she explains over the video panning over the multi-hued dish.

And while her former go-to snack was Flamin' Hot Cheetos (Not good for my acid reflux, she says), shes since traded them in for a vegan Cheetos alternative.

I dip that in the hummus. Bada-boom, bada-snack! she says.

For dinner, she pairs a truffle-chickpea-mushroom ball with some quinoa and leftover salad from earlier in the day.

While she says shes not a fan of diet cola, she decided to drink one leftover from her parties, saying, I needed some sparkles in my throat." Understandable.

And for dessert, she makes a PB&J-inspired smoothie using peanut butter, frozen strawberries, oats, oat milk and a vanilla protein powder.

At the end of the video, she tells viewers that "We still need justice for Breonna Taylor," adding a number to text to "demand that the officers who murdered her are arrested and charged." Taylor, 26, an African American emergency-room technician, was killed by police in March during a raid at her home in Louisville, Kentucky. One of three Kentucky police officers involved in her killing, Brett Hankison, was fired on June 23.

Lizzo has been pairing her protein-packed meals with a consistent workout routine which includes cycling, jumping rope and strengthening exercises, according to an earlier TikTok video she shared that addresses body-shamers.

It may come as a surprise to some of yall that Im not working out to have your ideal body type. Im working out to have my ideal body type, she says in the video. And you know what type that is? None of your (expletive) business. Because I am beautiful, I am strong, I do my job and I stay on my job.

She adds, Health is not just determined on what you look like on the outside. Health is also what happens on the inside.
