November 1st is World Vegan day and the start to World Vegan month.

Agriculture is one of the most resource-intensive and environmentally damaging processes in our industrialized lifestyles. Vegan Society states that “[r]emoving the causes of environmental degradation is often more effective than seeking to control the symptoms.” A simple solution (or at least a step in the right direction) to the agriculture problem effecting the environment is becoming vegan.  Although veganism might not be a possibility (or you think it can’t be a possibility) for you.  Fact: it is harder to find delicious vegan food, but here in Boulder the restuarants have a great selection of organic, vegan, vegetarian, delicious food.

Check out my vegan favorites:

Amy’s Roasted Vegetable Pizza

Soy Delicious Purely Decadent

Field Roast Celebration Roast

Being Vegan doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice delicious foods, and vegan food is becoming more and more available either at your local Whole Foods or local restaurant.
