A vegan lifestyle may not be for everyone, but for those it resonates with, there is really no other way to live.Being vegan goes far beyond just the foods you eat. It is a way of life, complete with a shift in perspective.People go vegan for a number of reasons, most of which are very personal to them.Advocates of a vegan lifestyle can get a bad rap, probably because it seems like a very extreme adjustment and some of the ways animals are treated can be truly heartbreaking.

Eating well and cooking good food is what most people desire. This is a fact. However, when body vetoes some foods and ethics vetoes others then a lot of experience and creativity are necessary to always have new healthy & delicious foods on our tables. I looked unsuccessfully for a real Italian cookbook of only gluten free and cruelty free recipes, so I decided to write one myself. The ingredients in this book are: thirty years of experience; an excellent knowledge of raw foods and their effects on the organism; endless creativity and the Italian cuisine, and in particular Tuscany, which is part of my DNA. It was an intriguing challenge to handle food with the limitations of a gluten free diet for health and vegan by choice, without ever losing focus on taste and pleasure. Get in touch with this new way of cooking and you'll learn how to make every day dishes amazing and even more surprising.

Vegan Consciousness and the Commodity Chain

In this dissertation, I analyze how neoliberal whiteness, race consciousness, decolonization, and anti-racism operate within three different vegan food guides: PETA's Vegan Shopping Guide, Queen Afua's Sacred Woman, and Food Empowerment Project's Ethical Food Choices. PETA, Queen Afua, and Food Empowerment Project are all located within the landscape of vegan politics to produce "ethical" spaces across multiple scales (i.e. consciousness, the body and the home). However, these three sites represent different engagements with food commodities for achieving ethical consumption. Such differences are not so much about food, as much as they are about the social, political, and economic relationships underlying the food commodity chain. This manuscript will reveal that these `differing' vegan guides, actually effect and are affected by whiteness; both in its historical (i.e. colonial whiteness and Jim Crow segregation) and contemporary forms (i.e. neoliberal whiteness). These connections will be revealed and articulated through the primary framework of critical race materialism and the lens of critical food studies. Chapter two is titled "'Never Be Silent': On Trayvon Martin, PETA and the Packaging of Neoliberal Whiteness". Vegan tomato products and So Delicious® are advocated as "cruelty-free" in PETA's online Vegan Shopping Guide. I will engage critical race materialist and decolonial analysis of the meanings PETA has applied to these two commodities. Such analysis will reveal how PETA's marketing of vegan products, as "cruelty-free," conceals human exploitation that makes these foods possible. I also show how PETA's `anti-racist' use of Trayvon Martin's 2012 murder for their new campaign, signify how both post-humanism and post-racialism work to conceal the violence of neoliberalism and racism. Chapter three is titled, "Feed a Wom[b]man, Feed the Black Nation: Afrocentric Vegan Politics and Queen Afua's Kitchen." Queen Afua is one of the most popular and widely read health activists amongst Black women in the USA. In this chapter, I analyze the food that Sacred Woman recommends or abhors to `purify', `decolonize,' and `liberate' Black Americans from legacies of colonialism and racism. First, through an Afrocentric framework, I show how Afua's vegan philosophy resists anti-black conceptualizations of Black women as "unfeminine" and "breeders." After this analysis, I use Black feminist theorizing to explore how the meanings Afua places on particular vegan commodities simultaneously reproduces heterosexist, ableist, and black middle-class `reformist' conceptualizations of a `healthy' Black nation.Lastly chapter four is named "Food Empowerment Project and the Underside of Veganized Modernity." Food Empowerment Project (FEP) is a pro-vegan food justice organization in South Bay California. They place great emphasis on farmworker rights and alleviating environmental racism. I show that their Ethical Food Choices guide exposes how neoliberalism, corporate-capitalist profits, and hyper-consumerism dictate "ethical" vegan marketing schemes and labels such as "sustainable," "ethically sourced," and "Fair Trade." They achieve this by re-signifying the neoliberal meaning of `sustainable' palm oil products and cocoa, to reflect the cruel and unethical conditions they create. Analysis of FEP's boycott of popular `eco-conscious' and `sustainable' labeled vegan brands Earth Balance® and CLIF Bar® will be undertaken. Ultimately, this dissertation articulates how something as `mundane' as vegan food guides can be used to create new critical literacies around ethical consumption and racial dynamics, as well as reveal how neoliberal whiteness operates within the food commodity chain.
