Eggs, in a lab: For a while now, the folks at Hampton Creek Foods have been working on creating a plant-based version of eggs in a lab that’s 1) as close to the real thing as possible in every way imaginable, 2) with better health benefits, such as no cholesterol, and 3) cheaper than buying an egg in a grocery store. You can get a free sample here, watch a TechCrunch clip above, and read about Beyond Eggs in a number of places online, but here’s our question: Would you buy this?

Protip: Don’t get a non-vegan tattoo that says “vegan.” Oops.

  • vegan In an attempt to prove to her friends that she was more vegan than the rest of them, a young girl got the word “vegan” tattooed in her inner-lip area.
  • not vegan Unfortunately for her, she got the tattoo with black ink, which is usually made from non-vegan charred animal bones. Which is bad for her. Oops. Vegan fail. source via

Vegan Beef of the Day: While scrolling through VegNews one day, the Level 5 Vegans @ QuarryGirl stumbled upon something rather unsavory: It seems “the nation’s premier print and online vegan magazine” has been purchasing iStockphotos of decidedly non-vegan meals, then photoshopping them to appear “vegan,” and slapping them on the site’s recipes.
Though the scandal is delectable, vegans everywhere are losing their appetite for VegNews, and subsequently canceling their subscriptions in droves (QuarryGirl says it not only canceled its subscription, but also shipped back the award it received from the publication).
FWIW, VegNews issued a statement [pdf] blaming the usage of meat-based stockphotos on cost constraints, saying “it is simply not financially feasible for VegNews at this time [to use custom-shot photography for every spread].”

Well, this is pretty much the funniest thing ever. The photos reveal two things: That the vegetarian magazine writes their articles without taking photos of the food they’re talking about (bad on its own) and that the food isn’t even vegetarian. Score one for awesome.
