KOM means “King of the Mountain” (QOM/ Queen of the Mountain for female warriors). It means you completed a particular segment over a map with the fastest time while cycling or running on Strava. Of course, KOMs come and go, so it’s an ephemeral milestone until someone else tops it. It’s 12 seconds over the High Bridge going from Manhattan to the Bronx. It’s a tiny sprint segment.
But now a known Vegan has done it. And plans to do more all over the place.
Team Vegan’s got watts! Ride your bike! Use yoru park! Move your body! Fuel your body compassionately and healthfully! Plant-based athletics for sustainable strides and world peace!

A militant black stew for vegan soldiers. Soldiers for humanity! What?!? You thought we were only for the animals? Here’s the link to that piece I mentioned from Democracy Now! on slavery in the seafood industry:
Honestly, you can’t be an environmentalist or a human rights activist and not consider veganism! Livestock and fisheries industries are among the most exploitative and dangerous of all human vocations to human beings and must be abolished ASAP. These industries are the most polluting and climate-change inducing besides. Let’s do without them and evolve as a species already!
This stew had black beans, crimini mushrooms, semi-firm tofu, organic sweet corn, garden peas, broccoli, and zucchini, plus a sauce of eight plum tomatoes, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, fennel seeds, black peppercorn, caraway seeds, hemp seeds, Ethiopian berbere spice, nama shoyu, fresh garlic and ginger, two red onions, and I usually add one red bell pepper but I forgot to get one this time. I think that’s all. Eaten over brown basmati rice.
