Check out this blog by Steff Deschenes, which mentions Vermont Soy. Steff's blog, Almanac of Eats, chronicles each day of the "food calendar" (did you know each day of the year is a National Food Holiday? Yeah, neither did we!) in wholesome, healthy, hilarious ways! While celebrating food, Steff inadvertently and humorously worhips Dionysus, the joys of veganized junk food, and sports some pretty slick body art. Hip, healthy, and smart? Contradictory no more!
