While some people are already receiving their 2010 VegNews “Veggies Awards” edition online and in the mail, we grabbed a peek at some of the winners and wanted to share the good news down below.

Overall, the world’s largest survey of vegan people, places, and products received more than 46,000 ballots in 64 categories. While last year’s awards cover featured the always controversial Heather Mills, this year’s front-and-center is none other than “Biggest Loser” star Bob Harper. See some of the winners, including “Favorite Vegetarian we’d love to see go Vegan” and “Favorite Animal Organization” after the jump below.

    I imagine the favoritism towards Mondays has something to do with the “Meat Free Mondays” phenomenon that is starting to pick up steam. So exciting!

    Yay for Purely Decadent, the best ice cream on Earth! And yes, it’s clearly about time that Sir Paul went vegan, isn’t it?
