Interesting that Stuff published this. An omni tries out a vegan diet for a month.

You'll likely be mocked and have trouble finding junk food, but there are ways to make it easier.

Woah, check out vegan Kiwi classic Pork Pie in theatres! We love main character Keira's stance of standing up for animals in need. Check out this behind the scenes by the Invercargill Vegan Society

Vegan "Pork Pie"

Invercargill Vegan Society

We're taking this bloody VEGAN car to Invercargill! Could “Pork Pie” be THE most vegan film in recorded history? A kickarse female lead character becoming an ethical role model for strong women everywhere – and “Pork Pie” a cult vegan film? The Invercargill Vegan Society scored an exclusive behind the scenes to find out more! And the full movie has even MORE animal rights themes! "What are you, some kind of undercover vegan activist?" "Not really, I wore these to my job interview last week. Not your mum, not your milk, I never hide my beliefs." "Gotta have principles bro!" "Our disobedience is civil, and is just, and we're taking our message the length of New Zealand all the way to Invercargill." “Keira was in part inspired by the evolving morals of youth and their growing awareness of our dietary impact on global health . I have two teenage Vegan daughters who see change as the responsibility of the individual.” – Matt Murphy (Writer / Director) Check out our full review: http://www.invsoc.org.nz/porkpie Be kind to pigs, grab a Z Energy vegan pie, steal a yellow Mini, and join the Invercargill Vegan Society :-)
