"VegNews is a glossy magazine that is a mix of People and Real Simple for the meatless set."
"VegNews is smart, hip and informative—and let's not forget stylish enough to leave on your coffee table all month long. This is the magazine to take veg life into the mainstream."
"This hard-hitting, political and entertaining vegetarian staple should be on every magazine fan's plate. We love the fantastic roundup of stories that informs readers of everything from which ballparks serve veggie dogs and burgers to a forthcoming KFC in India with vegetarian dishes."
"A lively, glossy magazine."
"VegNews advertising is as useful as its content. It's packed with restaurant, product and mail-order ads for companies that cater to the meat-free."
"VegNews is beautiful, stylish, witty, and important, all at the same time. No wonder it has thrived. VegNews is an example of independent publishing at its best."
