[Food Fight] Where do people who work for creepy lobby groups with oblique names get off on ripping into people who eat a vegan diet?
Mr. "Research Director" of the Center for Consumer Freedom is merely a paid hack for the restaurant industry. This front group doesn't like people who criticize the payday lending business, either.
Anyway, spend five minutes around the offices of City Weekly, and you'll find a handful of cute and peppy vegans, who live well, eat well and have a much more interesting diet than tofu blocks and tempeh drumsticks. They put the lie to the bland diet spin Mr. Research Director gets paid handsomely to spread around. Check out CW assistant art director Emily Prachthauser's blog, Happy Vegetable, for tips and tasty recipes from a very contented vegan.
BTW, that's a photo of a vegan birthday cake, above. Looks pretty dull, huh?
