Austin, Texas – Austin breakfast lovers have nothing to fear from Texas grocery company H-E-B’s plan to ration eggs in light of the recent avian flu–induced shortage—all thanks to The Vegan Nom, which took home PETA’s Best Vegan Breakfast in Austin Award. With tasty breakfast tacos served all day long, this cruelty-free food truck offers a delicious menu of egg-free delights—minus the cruelty and cholesterol that comes with eggs.

“The Vegan Nom’s delectable spread of all-vegan dishes makes Texas’ egg shortage a non-issue for breakfast enthusiasts,” says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. “PETA encourages everyone to give this tasty hotspot a try as one of many delicious cruelty-free options in Austin.”

As documented by PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—chickens used for eggs spend their entire lives in the same amount of space as an iPad screen and have parts of their beaks cut off with a hot blade to prevent them from pecking each other in frustration. Eggs are also the perfect host for salmonella, a common cause of food poisoning.
