Moby Lets You Look Inside His Vegan Cabinets

In this set of four videos for Epicurious, Moby invites the cameras in for a tour of his New York kitchen and answers the age-old question of “So what does a vegan eat anyway?”.

The musician opens up his cupboards to reveal the health-conscious contents and sings the praises of veganism — though he does admit that there are occasional challenges with the food options available while on tour in other countries.

Moby also tells about when he finally gave into peer pressure and bought a microwave. Exceedingly pleased with the purchase, he happily states that it actually preserves the nutrients of foods better than other cooking methods and even uses less energy than the stove top. (Tip: Even though it says “Loading”, hit play to start the video…)

While I wholeheartedly applaud Moby’s positive attitude on veganism, I did notice some unfortunate things in his kitchen that made me a little unsure of his referral to himself as a “quasi health-conscious, eco-friendly vegan“.

The plastic Wholefoods bag hung very obviously from his cabinet door throughout the entire tour. Someone send Moby a Chico bag, STAT! However, plastic bags do tend to work their way into even the most eco-conscious of lifestyles, so I can get past that. The plastic food baggies were a gift from a friend, so that too is excusable. Even the lone plastic spoon could have gotten in there any number of forgivable ways. I would certainly hope to be cut some slack for all of the the no-no’s that can be found in my house.

But really Moby, what was the deal with the plastic water bottle on your counter top? Shouldn’t you know better than that by now?

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
