One of the things we love about the vegan lifestyle is the sense of community we all tend to have with each other. I know that sounds like some hippy-dippy, touchy feel-ly, new age-y Kumbaya crap, but it seems to be true. It’s not like we’re all best friends without an ill word to say about another (you mess up and we’ll hurt you in a heartbeat, just ask VegNews), but at the same time it’s a supportive circle that welcomes newcomers warmly.
Stephanie Redcross & Vegan Mainstream are a great example of that sense of community. VM has been a consistent supporter of DFV from the very beginning. Whether it’s been offering a platform by re-posting one of our pieces or advice, VM has had our back from the beginning.
Vegan Mainstream is a multifaceted company that publishes content for consumers and provides marketing and publicity services for vegan companies and professionals. For the vegan consumer there is the VM blog; V-Stream, an e-magazine; regular pod casts and a smartphone app called ‘Vegan Here’ in the works.
For budding vegan professionals VM offers a free monthly webinar on Wednesday evenings and for those who are ready, professional marketing for all things vegan. That sounds pretty vague so I think I’ll let Stephanie tell you in her own words what she does

Stephanie continues to show her love for DFV by donating this super cool Vegan Revolution t-shirt as today’s gift.
In non-gift/shirt news, I was hungry for pancakes and feeling creative this morning so I whipped up a batch of pumpkin/cranberry/white chocolate chip pancakes that I gotta say were pretty good.
It is just a riff on this pancake recipe we posted before, just add: 1/2 cup of pumpkin, 1 tsp pumpkin spice to the mixture, then while you’re adding in the white chocolate chips, add in a little bit of cranberry sauce with whole cranberries. Be advised, it seems that they take a little longer to cook than the usual pancake.
