Just a quick note to say that I have loved Vegan Alert from the beginning. I describe my diet as mostly vegetarian, and I tend to minimize (if not fully excise) animal products. It is with glee that I read takedowns of fake meat and honest assessments of vegan trends as pricey lifestyle statements.

There’s a place for educating people about all of their options and looking for converts, and Vegan Alert does not have to be it. In an age where we all have safe spaces, I appreciate having one to thoughtfully and comically assess vegan trends from within the community. Keep up the good work!
