Stephanie Joins FNB News Team

Stephanie is going to take care of this feature from now on. She has great experience with writing about food and especially good vegan cheap food. She has been publishing The Cheap Vegan - a monthly newsletter/zine since September 2002. The Cheap Vegan is partially inspired by Amy Dacyczyn’s Tightwad Gazette and also by quirky obsession with cooking, a desire to be as self-sustaining as possible, and a constant tendency to be cheap.

The Cheap Vegan is eight pages, corner-stapled, and costs a measly $1/issue, plus an optional stamp. For further purchasing info, email Stephanie.
