We have been working hard to put a framework in place so people can start picking up tasks in an organized, efficient manner. It is proving to be a bit of a bottleneck, but once this work is done, we expect no shortage of tasks for folks that are interested in helping out on these projects. In the meantime, please come out, network, share ideas, find out where we are with our tasks, and help out with some of the ones that still need to be done.

Join fellow VegTucson Coalition members and friends for our next mixer, a potluck at Veg Box Cafe, Sunday, June 5th, beginning at 6 pm. All VegTucson Coalition members and prospective members are welcome and encouraged to come, even if you didn't make it to the last mixer. There will always be room for more people and a need for more help!

To get an idea for how many people will be there, please use this meetup event to RSVP. Any updates, such as time or date changes, and other comments and important messages will be posted in this meetup. When you RSVP "yes", meetup will alert you to these changes, unless you told it not to. It is also important to us to get a rough idea of how many people will be there. It is fine if you just show up; a lot of people show up without RSVPing, but it is way more helpful to us if we know in advance that you will be there. Thank you!

What if you only had one food to eat for the rest of your life? What if the only food you could ever access was russet potatoes? No salt. No spices or seasoning. No ketchup, mustard, or BBQ sauce. No condiments, and no added flavors. Just ... russet potatoes. Sure, russet potatoes are very good, but would you be satisfied with just russet potatoes when you know the bounty of foods nature provides? What if the one food you had access to was black-eyed peas? Or cilantro ... just cilantro? Or nutmeg ... just nutmeg?

Of course we are not satisfied eating only one food. The need for variety is where recipes come from; we take many ingredients and put them together to create ever new and exciting dishes. However, many of us, or perhaps most of us, in the plant-based community go about our lives with access to only one or two ingredients, and we rarely share, or we share very selectively. But what if we came together and shared our ingredients openly with intention and purpose? What kind of master dishes could we come up with?

This is where the VegTucson Coalition comes in. We all have one or more ingredients - it could be a skill, a talent, an idea, an abundance of time or money, a lot of connections, or a mastery of the word, computer, or law. We have largely kept these ingredients to ourselves because we don’t know how or where or with whom to share them. That is, until now.

This is the core purpose of the coalition; it is to give a space for us all to come together to share our ingredients and create a master dish for us all and the world to share in. It is a network; a place to find others and build alliances, to share time, talent, and treasure, in order to make our lives and our world a better place.

Recently, we had a launch party, which was very well attended - thank you to everyone who came and made it a success. Now the time has come for our first mixer; a time and a place to meet and find out what ingredients we have and what master dishes we can create!

VEGAN LOGIC is thrilled to be able to offer another FREE Community event! This time we're bringing you Jasmin Singer, Animal Rights Activist, Co-Founder of the non-profit OurHenHouse.org and now author of the new book, "Always Too Much and Never Enough: a memoir". Don't miss this opportunity to hear Jasmin tell her story with a reading, presentation and Q&A session. As always, come early to meet with Jasmin, get a book signed and have a wonderful and healthy dinner from our food vendors.

The event is Saturday, March 5th, at 7 pm, at The Loft Cinema Theater, with a 5-7 pm meet and greet with Jasmin and dinner from our local food vendors.

The VegTucson Coalition is having a launch party and mixer on Saturday, January 30th, from 2 - 5 pm, downtown at Veg in a Box and Urban Fresh. The address is: 73 E Pennington St, Tucson, AZ 85701. Street parking is free on Saturdays, or you can park in the Pennington Street Garage, across the street, for a few dollars.

Please RSVP for the launch party. An RSVP is requested so we can be prepared, but it is not required. You may come even if you don't RSVP.

This is a great opportunity to come out, have fun, meet interesting people, and find out more about the coalition. After the party, starting at 5 pm, we will have an informal dinner and discussion at Veg in a Box.

The schedule is below, and is subject to change. In addition, we will have live music and people around you can chat with. You can come and go as you see fit, it is a party after all!

Datenog is a healthy and tasty alternative to eggnog or soynog. The only ingredients are dates, soymilk (Westsoy has one of the healthiest brands of soymilk), and cinnamon. Blend all ingredients. Use cold soymilk and frozen dates for a cold drink.

Today, VegTucson would like to formally announce our main mission - we have formed a coalition of like-minded, predominately plant-based businesses, advocacy groups, and individuals. As a coalition, we bring the plant-based community together to network, and promote plant-based lifestyles by providing resources and education to Tucson-area businesses, groups, individuals, and the public.

We focus on sharing knowledge, ideas, time, talent, connections, and resources to improve our lives, businesses, careers, environment, and relationships with other species. As the saying goes, together we are greater than the sum of our parts. We believe that by pooling what we have, we achieve an exponential return on investment, yielding substantial benefits to ourselves, and increasing our ability to promote plant-based lifestyle in our community. VegTucson provides the basic infrastructure, organization, coordination, and promotions to its members to achieve these goals.

Quick note: 20 year Vegan Bodybuilder, Robert Cheeke will be at Veg in a Box this Friday, December 11th, at noon for a book signing and chat.

Also, don't forget that Dr. Michael Greger, who created NutritionFacts.org will be giving a FREE presentation at The Loft on Sunday, December 13th, at 5 pm. Eat, meet, and greet is from 3 - 5 pm (food is not free).

Forty years ago, a landmark paper was published showing for the first time that many human cancers have what’s called “absolute methionine dependency,” meaning that if we try to grow cells in a Petri dish without giving them the amino acid methionine, normal cells thrive, but without methionine, cancer cells die. Normal breast cells grow no matter what, with or without methionine, but cancer cells need that added methionine to grow.
