OPINIONS are swirling about the pope's upcoming Philly visit for the World Meeting of Families - what will happen, what may happen, what should happen. I have just one point: The pope should eat vegan while in Philadelphia. Here's why. 1. We want the pope to stay healthy. Pope Francis has made huge strides in bringing the papacy into the 21st century. But he's 78 and has spoken ominously about being called home early, and that's not what anyone wants. We're hoping for a John Paul II tenure (27 years, until he's 100)

Vegan Latin flavors Nicole Marquis (HipCityVeg, Charlie was a sinner.) has added the similarly vegan  Bar Bombón , a Latin themes near her HipCityVeg flagship at 133 S. 18th St. (267-606-6612), the corner store across the alley from a.kitchen. Marquis and crew have not only created an Old San Juan-style, 10-seat barroom and 30-seat dining room out of the snug storefront but also sidewalk seating on the Moravian Street side. Menu includes Puerto Rican empanadas (from her mother's side)

The vegan food and juice revolution that's been a rising "fast-casual" wave in Philadelphia is starting to make some ripples at the Shore. Greens & Grains in Ventnor cooks hearty and flavorful plant-based meals-to-go at its month-old little storefront, from tomatoey coconut-curried lentils over rice to cool soba salad and surprisingly good faux meatballs made from eggplant and tofu. Juices and salads, though, are G&G's sweet spot. The vivid purple Coco Glow smoothie (bananas, berries, coconut)

HOMESTYLE-vegan chef/entrepreneur Rachel Klein, of Miss Rachel's Pantry , just opened her new location on Chadwick Street, a couple of blocks from the Passyunk Avenue spot she'd occupied for the past three years. "I'm very excited to be embedded in the community," she said. And while she meant her home neighborhood, Klein is also part of a growing Philly vegan community that we'll look at today via three of the women involved. First, if you missed a chance to experience Klein's scrumptious down-home cooking at the old place, or via her meal-prep and catering programs, now's the time to treat yourself.

THE ITALIAN Market just marked a century in business, and it didn't get there by catering to dietary fads. The vendors' hallmark in this area around 9th Street between Washington Avenue and Christian Street is patient, high-quality craftsmanship, developed over time. Originally established by old-world cheesemakers, butchers and sausage-grinders, and reveling in its traditional trappings, this is not where you'd look for trailblazing vegan foods. Sure, there are scattered options: Sabrina's Cafe (910 Christian St.)

RICH LANDAU and Kate Jacoby, owners and executive chefs of Vedge, provided this recipe for Gene Baur's new book, Living the Farm Sanctuary Life: The Ultimate Guide to Eating Mindfully, Living Longer, and Feeling Better Every Day. Baur writes, "I love this robust 'catch-of-the-day' tomato soup, because here the catch isn't fish, it's wild mushrooms, peas, leeks and fennel. Served with a slice of toasted sourdough bread, this is a compassionate version of a San Francisco classic.

WERE YOU shocked to hear about Jon Stewart's post-"Daily-Show" plan to join his Philly-born wife, Tracey Stewart, in running a farm for rescued animals? It was no surprise to Gene Baur, who has helped reshape attitudes - the Stewarts' and many others' - about food and animals since cofounding the first Farm Sanctuary for rescued farm animals almost 30 years ago. Baur was a recent "Daily Show" guest, and when I inquired, postinterview, about reports that his first book, Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food , was a major influence on the Stewarts, he shrugged off the credit, saying, "All of us here at Farm Sanctuary are very grateful to the Stewarts.

"VEGAN is going mainstream," blared an article on the food-trends site Food Navigator, noting that the number of references to "vegan" on social media rival those of "Coca-Cola," and citing study numbers on vegan eating's growing appeal to a "much larger base of consumers" beyond hard-core vegans. So, it's no wonder that still more animal-free products are hitting shelves (last week saw the debut of ready-made vegan "scrambled eggs"), and that plant-based offerings are showing up just about everywhere, flooding into the nooks and crannies of our culture.

THE GRAND FINALE of the 2015 Best Vegan Cheesesteak in Philly contest was a blast - a blast of very-late-winter snow! On Friday, three hours before spring's start, Philly was covered in wet, white stuff, jamming traffic and slamming our final judging event at Weavers Way Chestnut Hill. Two of our perennially prompt judges arrived late, as a fallen tree closed Lincoln Drive, and many of those expected wound up being thwarted from attending. Still, a healthy throng of vegan and vegan-curious spectators cheered our judges (Frank Olivieri Jr., Councilwoman Cindy Bass, Dr. Ana Negron and dietitian Ed Coffin)

THE PEOPLE have spoken in this year's contest to name the Best Vegan Cheesesteak in Philly , with more than 1,800 votes cast by more than 1,500 interested voters since the contest began on Feb. 26.
