Our other blog, Veggie Revolution, focuses more on food than this one does, especially the environmental, health and humane aspects of our food choices. That blog was started in 2005 and continues today, while the blog you're reading now began in 2009.

In the sidebar of Veggie Rev, you'll see links to each year that can take you back to all the posts for a particular year.
