New Champions of fruit and Vegetables?

New Ice Age Wall of Ice

Vegetarianism has found a new Superhero in the shape of The British Frozen Food Federation.

Intent on publicising the environmental and health benefits of food preserved with Nature's most natural preserving method, the BFFF Ice Wall installation on London's arty South Bank was a crowd puller for London's Commuters yesterday.

It was like a vegetarian version of Damian Hirst's revolting pickled animals!

Let's hope the BFFF get involved in National Vegetarian Week in 2009 and help to celebrate 65 years of vegans promoting fresh fruit and vegetables.

Something Fishy Mobile Vegan Catering

Something Fishy Mobile Vegan Catering

Vegan Fishy Superheroes need help!

vegan fish and chips The amazing world's first vegan fish and chip van is under threat within 12 months of it's start up. Seems the original van was a bit of a lemon and the volunteers need £20,000 for a new van.

If you know someone who could help the van is used by tens of thousands of people each year - a good opportunity for a company who makes eco friendly green vans I think or someone like Redwoods who make vegan fish alternatives (such as fishless fingers)

Perhaps you just have too big a tax bill this year and would rather it go to this worthy cause than towards fighting wars in Iraq etc.

The 247 lb. Vegan -

fit vegan american football player The 247 lb. Vegan -

American footballers have a notoriously shorter average lifespan. Here's one american footballer who is trying to break the mould.

The protein-rich bounty of the football training table is supposed to grow the biggest and strongest athletes in professional sports. Kansas City Chiefs tight-end Tony Gonzalez was afraid it was going to kill him. "It's the Catch-22," says Mr. Gonzalez, 31. "Am I going to be unhealthy and play football? Or be healthy and get out of the league?"

Looking for Super Vegan Super Heroes

Hi Y'all

I need your help.

The Bristol Vegan Fayre. ( planning a Best dressed Vegan Superhero competition.

Do you or anyone you know have leanings in the superhero direction?

See here for inspiration

Legion of Fire - Myspace

So far we have

EcoGirl (Sunny)
RawfoodMan (James)
Captain Lush



Catchphrases: "To Insanity and beyond!", "Have you tried it sublingually madam?",

LOVE him or HATE him there's one thing you can't deny about marmite man. He's always willing and able to help a young nervous damsel in distress with deficencies. He prides himself in spreading himself thinly so he can go farther and help more people.

Our caped crusader may be dark, mysterious and inherently savoury but his prowess in saving humans from chronic disease are well documented.

He is accomplished in the kitchen and can transform a bland non-descript dish into a tongue tantalising taste sensation within seconds.

He is particularly good with soldiers.


Super vegan Powers: tongue tantalising, Can cure blondeness, Strengthen hearts, createDNA, and assist in conitive function.

Weaknesses; MarmiteMan's Krytonite are drugs such as Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) used to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and peptic ulcer disease. Examples of PPIs are Omeprazole (Prilosec©) and Lansoprazole (Prevacid©) H2 receptor antagonists used to treat peptic ulcer disease. Examples are Tagamet©, Pepsid©, and Zantac©, and Metformin© a drug used to treat diabetes. All of these drugs are thought to reduce MarmiteMan's superpowers. In addition the contraceptive pill and alcohol may also impair his powers
