Going vegan is more than a diet change, it’s an opportunity to take on the challenge of a compassionate lifestyle based on environmental stewardship, service to others, and ahisma (non-violence). Living vegan is not about giving up food groups, it’s about gaining a more conscious life for yourself, community and the planet.

Vegan Challenge

Sacramento Vegan Challenge presents 1000 Vegan Cupcakes for Charity in celebration of Earth Day – April 22, 2012. That’s right, our own vegan cupcakes competition is taking on global warming AND raising funds for three local charities at 100 Capitol Mall with 10+ local bakers making 100 cupcakes each to themes like: Fresh n’ Local, Cupcakes Around the World, and Save the Rainforest.


Want to give a vegan lifestyle a try? We encourage you to take on the challenge of a healthier life and put together a great list of resources, cookbooks, free starter kits, and even nifty iPhone apps for meal planning to get you started!  And I know you’re thinking: “But what about my protein??”  – you can also see what the firefighters who wrote the “Engine 2 Diet” have to say about that!
