CURIOUS FACT

Are you dating enough?

ABSORB THIS
We’ve all had good dates and bad dates but which dates taste the best? In case you haven’t worked it out yet, we’re talking about the sweet fruit! Dates are a vegan staple, they are amazing as a sweetener added to smoothies and baking or just as a snack. Did you know they’re one of the oldest foods? Fossil records show that the date palm has existed for at least 50 million years.
Quality does matter, we have all had those dried out old dates stuck together in the back of the pantry. You have to soak them to bring them back to life. Have you tried fresh dates? Dates so moist you need to wash your hands after eating? Yum!

Trump Veganism: A Political Survey of American Vegans in the Era of Identity Politics

KNOW THIS
Wrenn, C. L. (2017). Trump veganism: A political survey of American vegans in the era of identity politics. Societies7(4), 32.
Sociologist, social movement scholar, and scholar of human-nonhuman relations, Dr. Corey Lee Wrenn presents a potent discussion and survey of 287 American vegans. Interesting findings relate to political spectrum identity and compassion for human oppression and suffering alongside the animal suffering that motivates so many to originally go vegan. It notes correlations between motivations behind going vegan and political leanings as well. It delves into how rising “hyper-nationalistic, pro-capitalist populism”, or “Trumpism” as it is termed, coexists with modern day veganism.
