Blast from the past! ~ Back in 2017 I interviewed Robert Grillo who spent 20 years in the food industry and shares its workings firsthand in Farm to Fable: The Fictions of Our Animal-Consuming Culture; and also Bren McClain who wrote Farm To Fable, a novel about a mother cow who mentors a mother human.

A shoutout to our sponsor, Complement. Developed by vegan dietitian Dr. Pamela Fergusson, and the NoMeat Athlete, Matt Frazier, Complement enables you to get your vitamin B12, vitamin D3, and the essential Omega 3 fatty acids (DHA & EPA) in a totally vegan form that you just spray into your mouth once a day and know that your already great diet now has the full complement of essential nutrients. Click here for more info and to order. Use the code MAINSTREETVEGAN for a 10% discount.
And now the good folks of Complement have a new product: Complement Plus. While everyone agrees that B12, vitamin D3, and the essential Omega 3 fatty acids are nutrients people eating plant-based diets (and a lot of other people besides) should not overlook, there are some other nutrients that it’s also easy to be short on, even with a well-chosen diet. To tackle this, Fergusson and Frazier joined forces with Joel Kahn, MD, and together developed Complement Plus, a supplement in tablet form that includes all the nutrients in Complement spray, along with zinc, iodine, selenium, and vitamin K2. Essential for blood clotting, healthy bones, and heart health, the only plant-food source of vitamin K2 is natto, an obscure, fermented soy food and one that is definitely an acquired taste (and smell). To get Complement Plus at a discount, simply go to www.alpineorganics.co (where you can order regular Complement, as well), but this time your discount code will be MAINSTREETVEGAN+.
