Tennessee Titans Advance Over the Patriots

In what some would call an upset, the New England Patriots were defeated in the first round of the playoffs by America’s Vegan Team, the Tennessee Titans. In 2018, 11 players on the Tennesse Titans went vegan. They beat the six-time Super Bowl Champions. Many people learned about the vegan journey after seeing outside linebacker, Derrick Morgan featured on the popular documentary, The Game Changers. It’s also interesting to note that the New England Patriot’s star quarterback Tom Brady also swears by a plant-based diet to stay ultra-competitive in his 40’s. We will be rooting for the Titans to go all the way so we can catch up with them at the Super Bowl here in Miami.

Ethical Veganism is Now a Protected Belief

Well, it’s official! Ethical Veganism is now a protected belief thanks to one man. Jordi Casamitjana is an ethologist and animal rights activist that brought his former employee to court after he alleges he was wrongfully terminated. Due to the circumstances of the termination, the case quickly turned into a case that would forever change the way veganism is treated in the workplace. SoFlo Vegans interviewed Jordi both before and after the trial and you can find the link in our notes.

Pollo Tropical Offers Vegan Options

Popular South Florida restaurant chain with over 140 locations in Florida and Georgia now offers vegan bowls and wraps. You can order your rice bowls and wraps with Beyond Meat crumbles for a limited time. This is a huge win for the animals as it will encourage more non-vegans to try going meat-free.  Watch our full video on this story.
