5@5 is a food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.

Editor's note: Angela Liddon is the writer, photographer, and recipe developer for Oh She Glows, the web’s destination for healthy vegan recipes. Her first cookbook, The "Oh She Glows Cookbook" was released this month. She also has an M.S. in Social-Personality Psychology and enjoys helping others find happiness and health through a plant-based diet.

When I first shifted to a vegan diet, I bought all of those packaged and highly processed mock meat and dairy products that I thought I was supposed to buy. "Isn’t this what vegans do?" I thought as I stuffed my mock turkey slices into the cart.

The problem? My energy wasn’t as supercharged as I hoped it would be on a vegan diet. Surprise, surprise, once I rid my diet of all of these imitation products filled with a million unpronounceable ingredients the only other option was to embrace a whole foods diet and get busy in my kitchen. Yes, I had to suck it up and teach myself how to cook real food. Or bust.

Recently, a friend unearthed this 2010 tweet from Kim Kardashian.
“I had no idea a pickle was really a cucumber! U guys totally confirmed it!”

There’s a lot that can be said here. Let’s start with how much has changed in just a few years. With the recent pickling obsession, the Kardashians are probably about to launch their own line of dills and half sours.

It’s also gratifying to see how much the world of vegetables has blown up during that time. Even McDonald’s is taking note: When activist Kathy Freston started a petition to get the chain to offer veggie burgers, she collected more than 90,000 signatures (including Mark Bittman, Alicia Silverstone, Pamela Anderson and our hero Andrew Zimmern). 

While we wait for McDonald’s to listen up and add a veggie burger to its menu, let’s round up six places that have great ones available now.

So it’s the end of 2013
Goodbye Cronut lines, goodbye Paula Deen

Now is the start of a brand new year
Time for a new pastry; time for more beer

Let’s look ahead to what this next year will mean
Like elite Jell-O shots, and star chefs who’ve gone green

Okay, enough with the tortured rhyming. More on the new beer cuisine later (just be on the lookout for more great chef and brewery partnerships, plus breweries in hotels). Here are five things we’re excited about in 2014.
