The Vegan Way-Our Way

Millennials rate the highest percentage of generations dedicated to Veganism
Veganism

Those of us with Grandrockers who were at Woodstock and grooved to the Fab Four and the so-old-they’re-young-again Rolling Stones have seen well-worn copies of “Laurel’s Kitchen” and other vegetarian-vegan cookbooks. Funny how a generation or two can change a discipline. The New York Times did a study in 2014 showing which generation is truly faithful to vegetarianism, and it turns out – not surprisingly to some – that 12 percent of Millennials are dedicated. That compares to 4 percent of Gen Xers and just 1 percent of Baby Boomers. You can read it here:

So though neither a vegetarian nor a vegan eats meat, vegetarians sometimes consume eggs and dairy. A vegan, on the other hand, eats no animals or animal products and won’t wear fibers that come from animals. No leather, no silk, no wool. If you’re confused, here’s a quick study to explain the differences: http://www.diffen.com/difference/Vegan_vs_Vegetarian

Now, if you happen to be vegetarian, happen to be traveling and happen to be hungry – and happen to have your mobile device handy – here’s a great site that lists vegetarian eateries by state. Cool beans, as they say. http://www.happycow.net/north_america/usa/

On the meatier end of the spectrum is the full-on fabulous Season 52 in Santa Monica. This is a haven in Los Angeles, and for good reason. Check out the sample menu – which in all honesty covers a lot of bases, including vegetarian.
