Congratulations, Vegan Pledge Winner!

IDA is thrilled to announce that hundreds of people from around the world took our Vegan Pledge as their New Year’s resolutions, and many more recommended the Pledge to their friends and family! Of course, going vegan is a win-win decision for people, the animals, and the planet, but this year, one lucky person who took IDA’s Vegan Pledge also takes home a special prize.

Congratulations to Vicki Medlyn of Texas, the cattle capital of the U.S. but also home to a growing number of vegans. Vicki has won copies of One-Dish Vegetarian Meals and The Vegetarian Meat & Potatoes Cookbook by Robin Robertson to add to her kitchen bookshelf! With more than 400 recipes for vegan burgers, steaks, stews, pasta, and other hearty favorites, Vicki will be able to start the year right with plenty of healthy and delicious food!
