      Eating vegan at Yale is an easy and rewarding experience. However,
      maintaining a vegan diet can seem difficult to those new to the idea.
      This perception might be in part due to Yale Dining — though it’s made
      significant progress in its offerings, there is still lack of
      diversity in vegan protein options. Further improvement in our dining
      halls would go a long way in helping students make the transition to a
      more compassionate, healthy and environmentally friendly way of
      eating.

      It turns out that eating vegan is more popular than ever on college
      campuses. According to a study by food-service provider Bon Appétit,
      the number of college students who identify themselves as vegetarian
      has risen by 50 percent since 2005, and the number of vegan students
      has more than doubled during the same period.

      This growth was seen this past weekend, when the Yale Animal Welfare
      Alliance hosted the second meeting of iV: the Ivy League Vegan
      Conference. The annual iV conference is dedicated to exploring the
      academic basis for plant-based diets and building a cohesive community
      of activists and advocates.
