There are animal welfare vegans and animal only-fight-against-other-vegans abolitionist vegans. V-EGANISM is neither. Just as there are positive things and negative things about conservatives and liberals, there are positive things and negative things about welfarists and abolitionists. V-EGANISM avoids all 4 "political parties", and remains as an independent in thoughts and actions, only choosing what is right and just for animals, humans, and the environment. V-EGANISM however does have a mission statement which is how the founder of veganism, Donald Watson, originally coined the word's definition. It was a perfect definition then and it still is a perfect definition now! So the following paragraph is V-EGANISM's official Mission Statement--and nothing more, nothing less, we are simply called, "Vegan Activists", with no additives:

"V-EGANISM educates people and helps people and animals regarding the political and social justice cause, Veganism, which is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude--as far as is possible and practical--all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing, cosmetics, household products, entertainment, service or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals, and the environment."

Vegan Iced Latte


I went grocery shopping at Fred Meyer over the weekend and found this new vegan treat by Silk! Fred Meyer had both Silk Iced Latte vanilla and mocha. I chose the vanilla to give it a try. 

The Iced Latte vanilla taste pretty good although I wish the flavor stood out more; the sweet taste is subtle but maybe not, as I have a very sweet tooth...Next time I'll try the mocha and compare the two.

This Silk beverage is great as an alternative to morning plain coffee. Silk makes awesome vegan drinks (I love, love, love their soy nog!!) and I'm glad there's another beverage of theirs to drink!

  1. I LOVE the Silk vanilla soy milk and chocolate soy milk. Delicious! I haven't tried the iced latte but I sometimes make my own iced coffee and it would be very good with the chocolate or vanilla soy milk in it, which I assume is what this would taste like as well. I have not seen the soy nog around here though, not even at holiday time. I am SO looking forward to getting there, to the "vegetarian capital"! I'm sure you have lots more options available than we do here.
