The 2017 issue of Twin Cities Veg Living has been published! This is the third edition of our annual 12-page magazine that’s used for outreach purposes–to encourage people to embrace their empathy and move toward a plant-based diet.
Print copies of the magazine are available at CAA Community Space and will be distributed for free at CAA events throughout the year. You can also view the magazine online.
This year’s edition has a variety of engaging articles and images. Here’s what you’ll find:
- An introductory letter from our new executive director, Laura Matanah
- A guide to eating a plant-based diet on a tight budget
- An article about the animals at SoulSpace Farm Sanctuary
- A recipe from The Herbivorous Butcher
- An article about Paula and Nathan Huerkamp, CAA volunteers
- A guide to the best vegan baked goods in the Twin Cities
- An article about two local vegan restaurants, J. Selby’s and Reverie Cafe + Bar

Also, we’d like to thank our graphic designer, Stephen Magner, for his work designing the layout not only for the magazine but also for our recently published 2016 Annual Report.
We hope that this magazine provides enjoyment and inspiration for whomever finds it, ultimately making the world a kinder, more compassionate place through our everyday choices.
Correction: Please note that on page four of the printed magazine, J. Selby’s address is misprinted. It is located in St. Paul, not Minneapolis. We encourage our Twin Cities community to support J. Selby’s. Please stay tuned to their website and Facebook page to get updates on when they will open.
