Cynics, fond of bemoaning the state of humanity and utter apathy of the population, would have you believe most people are like the infamous honey badger: they just don’t give a f***.

But that’s nonsense. People DO give a f***, and I saw it firsthand this weekend.

Seed Food and Wine Festival, a plant-based extravaganza of mouthwatering eats, blew into Miami with a beachside brunch, star-studded dinners, an open-air festival and lots of other culinary affairs. Keep in mind, Miami is a city known for its pornographic obsession with all things pork, so hosting a vegan festival was no small development. From Alicia Silverstone (check out my interview with her) to John Salley to Brendan Brazier, there were loads of celebs, plant-based brands, unbelievable edibles and thousands of people committed to making our planet a better place.

Here are some snapshots from this weekend’s amazing cruelty-free antics.

Seed Food and Wine Festival was proof positive that you don’t have to sacrifice taste, pleasure or fun to be vegan. And there’s NOTHING like knowing you’re giving the TLC to your bod, the planet and animals, alike. <3  Oh the happiness! #crueltyfree4ever
