2022 University of Idaho killings Re: Brian Christopher Kohberger - I couldn’t find any information about Brian Kohberger’s dietary preferences or thoughts about food. However, according to an article by Meaww, Kohberger was seen at Mad Greek restaurant in Moscow, Idaho at least twice to grab vegan pizza. Murder victims Xana Kernodle and Madison Mogen worked in the Mad Greek, a nonvegetarian restaurant. Presumably, none of the victims was plant-based. "The former employee tells PEOPLE that there was nothing suspicious about Kohberger's visits to the Mad Greek, and that he only stood out because he had a particular order: a strict vegan, Kohberger would check to make sure that his food had not come into contact with animal products."

Elizabeth Holmes Include in project because she adopted vegan sproutarian 'juicetarian' diet in order to 'work without sleep' for 16 hours. Elizabeth Holmes is a former American businesswoman who was the founder and CEO of Theranos, a now-defunct health technology company. I couldn’t find any information about her dietary preferences except that she adopted a vegan diet early on in her career because she found that staying off animal products allowed her to work later without sleep. She worked 16 hours a day, seven days a week, and allegedly slept four hours a night. Instead, she ran on a green juice blend of spinach, parsley, wheatgrass, celery, and cucumber.

Celebrities include Olivia Fox Cabane, the organiser of the Alternative Protein Summit and Founder & CEO of The Global Alternative Food Awards (GAFAs), and developer of The Protein Landscape.

Soy curls The whole article was basically how to prepare them. I have deleted most of it and it is looking a bit empty. Nutritional info, production, and history would be good things to add. I have added an two infoboxes, {{Infobox food}} and {{Infobox nutritional value}}, so that is done. I created a history section, but couldn't find much about them except that they were created around the year 2000 by Butler Foods. I don't know if there is much more to add. A better picture would be nice, and perhaps some information about production. I have moved it from Stub to Start
Taran Noah Smith More on his life beyond his California-based non-dairy cheese manufacturer and restaurant, Playfood, specializing in vegan and organic foods, which he and his ex-wife [Heidi van Pelt​​ (m. 2001; div. 2007)] formed in 2005.[14] If Heidi van Pelt​​ is also vegan, she is a 'person of interest' in this 'vegan historical unfolding'! She is known as 'American Vegan Chef' so she is 'into it!'[15] At the age of 17, Smith married Heidi van Pelt on April 27, 2001. The marriage sparked much controversy due to the couple's age difference, as van Pelt was 16 years older. The couple filed for divorce on February 2, 2007.[16] Not completed

Vegetarian and vegan symbolism Are these markings 'symbols' in any commonly-used sense (rather than certifications or labels)? Article (i) covers very few of the labels previously or currently used, or attempted, and (b) needs history section, and (iii) seems half-hearted in its scope. Needs discussion of 'cruelty-free products' labeling (e.g. PETA, commercial innovators, business efforts (failed and successful), etc.
Vegetarianism by country Globalise. Most countries are not mentioned. The Asia section, for instance, describes only China, India, Israel, Singapore, Thailand, and Taiwan.

Suggested articles[edit]


  • Peace Abbey Courage of Conscience Award: Many vegans and vegetarians have won this award; such an article would emphasize the notability of each of those article subjects (those who had been awarded the Peace Abbey Courage of Conscience Award.

  • Rubin Abramowitz (born c. 1885; 20th century vegan who with Catherine Nimmo founded early vegan society. I met Rubin Abramowitz (a tall, good-looking, clear-skinned man) in the 1980s. Was he an engineer? He donated money to vegan causes and organizations.[1][2][3] "*Abramowitz, an imprisoned conscientious objector to war (WW II), had become a cook to make it easier for the kitchen to provide vegan meals.

Jay Dinshah and published by AVS in 1964."MaynardClark (talk) 19:01, 6 October 2021 (UTC) Plenty of online links to Rubin Abramowitz stored in Catherine Nimmo article.

  • List of Animal Activists Killed While Protesting - The most recent example would be Regan Russell who was killed June 19, 2020 in Canada outside a slaughterhouse by a trucking driver. Other activists killed because of protesting against animal killing have thus included Jill Phipps, Chico Mendes, Karel Van Noppen, Stuart Fairlie, Mike Hill, and Tom Warby.[4] [5] This would be related from an academic perspective or investigation of such to this category [3] .
  • Seventh-Day Adventist (SDA) contributions to plant-based foods (plantmilks, grain coffees, mock-meats, etc.) in the 19th and 20th centuries.[6][7]
  • History of vegan and vegetarian literature, including a section on poetry. This 1813 poem is a good example.

Vegan companion animals[edit]

  • Toys for vegan dogs and vegan cats: Whimsies, Nylabone, and V-Dog make chew toys. Whimsies is NOT the Whimsies from Wade Ceramics, which are porcelain animal figures.
  • Ongoing vegan pet food research: history, drivers of ongoing research, developing thresholds and social implications of the research. Will plant-based meats development eventually feed companion and cages animals (e.g. zoos), including felines and big cats.[1]

Veg Music[edit]

  • List of songs about (the meanings, values, practice/s of) veganism and/or vegetarianism[1][2] - It seems that no such list currenty exists; such a resource could gather, aggregate, archive, catalog, document, record, index, chronicle, compile, systematize, organize, categorize, log, store, classify, inventory, file, index, understand and synopsize, and curate the musicological history of celebrating plant-forward, plant-based, and plant-exclusive diets and eating patterns, and perhaps launch further efforts in this direction. Many vegetarians and vegans haave realized and acknowledged that few vegan musicians have really "served the cause" with the creative side of their art, although quite a few have done fundraising concerts for animal advocacy groups (such as PETA).

Veg Music Groups and Musicians[edit]

Classical musicians who are veg It can be difficult to determine the dietary habits of classical musicians, as this information is often not publicly available. However, here are some classical musicians who are known to be vegan:

  • Caroline Lucas - English politician and former member of the European Parliament who is also a trained flautist and recorder player. Current article may need to be cleaned up. Mention of vegetarianism is in the talk page.
  • Chloe Flower - American pianist - No mention of vegetarianism in the article
  • Michael Nyman - English composer and pianist - No mention of vegetarianism in the article
  • Nico Muhly - American composer and pianist - No mention of vegetarianism in the article
  • Philip Glass - American composer and pianist - Already in this project.

Instrumentalist musicians who are known to be vegan

  • Hannah Georgas - Canadian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist
  • James McCartney - English singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist
  • Rikki Stein - English music manager and former percussionist
  • Ron Reyes - American punk rock musician and former Black Flag vocalist
  • Tomas Kalnoky - American musician and frontman of the band Streetlight Manifesto, known for his vegan activism

It's important to note that being vegan is a personal choice and dietary habits do not necessarily reflect a musician's talent or skill.

Spiritually-minded vegan musicians

  • Ajeet Kaur - American singer-songwriter and kirtan artist, who follows a plant-based diet and is a vocal advocate for veganism.
  • Michael Franti - American musician, poet, and activist, who practices yoga and follows a vegan diet.
  • Moby - American musician and producer, who is a devout Christian and vegan activist.
  • Peter Gabriel - English musician and songwriter, who has been a vegan for many years and supports animal rights activism.
  • Sufjan Stevens - American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, who has stated that he is vegan for ethical and environmental reasons.

It's worth noting that there are many religious traditions that encourage or require certain dietary restrictions, such as kosher laws in Judaism and halal laws in Islam, but being vegan is a personal choice and not necessarily tied to any particular religion.

Vegan-themed music Vegetarians and vegans come from all walks of life and have diverse musical tastes, so it's difficult to make generalizations about which types of music specifically attract them. However, here are some genres that often feature vegetarian and vegan themes in their lyrics or are associated with veganism or animal rights activism:

  • Electronic dance music (EDM) - EDM festivals and events often feature vegan food options, and some DJs and producers in the EDM community are vocal advocates for veganism and animal rights.
  • Folk - Many folk artists have written songs about animal rights and environmentalism, and some have also advocated for vegetarian and vegan diets. For example, American folk singer-songwriter Ani DiFranco has been a vegan for many years and has written songs about animal rights and environmentalism.
  • Hip-hop - While hip-hop has traditionally been associated with meat-centric diets and machismo, there are many hip-hop artists who have embraced veganism and use their music to promote animal rights and plant-based diets. For example, rapper and activist RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan is a vegan and has written about the ethical and health benefits of plant-based eating.
  • Reggae - Reggae music has a long history of promoting social justice and environmentalism, and many reggae artists have also been vocal advocates for vegetarianism and veganism. For example, Jamaican singer-songwriter and Rastafarian advocate Bunny Wailer was a strict vegetarian.
  • World music - Many traditional and contemporary music styles from around the world feature vegetarian and vegan themes or are associated with vegetarianism or animal rights activism. For example, Indian classical music has a long history of promoting vegetarianism and non-violence towards animals, and many Indian musicians are vegetarians or vegans.

Vegans with Wikipedia articles who are known to perform in music groups

  • Neal Barnard - The section on music deserves its own paragraph. After the sentence listing “Pop Maru, Verdun, and CarbonWorks,” we might add this sentence:
“Alec Baldwin once called Barnard ‘Eddie Van Halen with a medical degree.’” [cite Northern Virginia Magazine][1]
