    In a review article published May 2014 as part of a special issue of the journal Nutrients entitled “Vegan diets and Human health”, authors Fumio Watanabe, Yukinori Yabuta, Tomohiro Bito and Fei Teng examined Vitamin B12-containing plant food sources for vegetarians. Through a comparison of plant-based foods, they sought to determine the best source of naturally occurring vitamin B12. Included in the review were various kinds of beans, leafy greens, other vegetables, mushrooms, and algae. They also discuss milk and egg yolks, finding the former to be very low in B12 and the latter…

     UPDATE!  Jeannie, another Blogger, wrote and asked me how this shortening would work in a vegan "buttercream" frosting and how it would hold up at room temperature.  I didn't want to make a big dessert, since we overindulged at a family event over the last two days, so I made a very small version of my basic vegan "buttercream": 1/2 cup of the Rainforest Shortening, frozen and sliced into tiny cubes; 12 oz. organic powdered sugar, 5 tsp. non-dairy milk or other liquid of choice; 1 tsp. vanilla.  I beat it in an electric mixer until fluffy and left it at room…

    There’s probably never been a time when so many people have been interested in giving veganism a try. What do you think aspiring vegans need the most help with when it comes to embracing a lifestyle free of animal products? Yes, it feels like there is more interest in vegan living than ever before, and it’s a very exciting time to be immersed in this lifestyle. I think aspiring vegans mainly need simple, practical advice and support for shifting to a plant based life, including information as basic as knowing where to shop and how to prepare vegan food. Humans are creatures of habit,…

  • Australia to Ban Super Trawlers

    erikmarcus
    24 Dec 2014 | 11:01 am
    One of the greatest enemies of the oceans, the super trawler, is set to be permanently banned from Australian waters. Super trawlers are massive ships—well over 100 meters long—that decimate fisheries by scooping up tens of thousands of fish at a time. Many of them even carry large-scale processing units and freezers, enabling them to stay at sea for weeks on end. If you’re looking for one of the key villains behind the fact that most of the world’s fisheries are in decline, look no further than super trawlers. Beyond the vast numbers of fish they kill, the giant nets these…
  • Unilever Drops “Just Mayo” Lawsuit

    The most stupid lawsuit in the entire history of stupid lawsuits has just been dropped, thanks in no small part to the litigators realizing that it was, well, a stupid lawsuit with zero chance of success. Mayo giant Unilever, which owns the Hellman’s and Best Foods brands, has dropped its lawsuit against Hampton Creek’s Just Mayo, just one day after the small startup announced it had attracted another $90 million in financing. Unilever filed the lawsuit against Hampton Creek for violating truth-in-labeling laws, since there is an obscure 1957 FDA regulation specifying that…

  • Caramel Corn

    17 Apr 2015 | 5:54 pm
    I can't eat this tasty treat because of my Crohn's, but I have had rave reviews from friends and family alike. This recipe is pretty much like every other caramel corn recipe out there, except that it uses vegan margarine which is cheap and adds some salt to complement the sweetness. I also like the addition of vanilla extract to round out the flavour a bit more. It does use light corn syrup which some may want to avoid--I am guessing that you can use brown rice syrup instead but I have not tried it. Experiments with adding maple syrup led to a pronounced burnt sugar taste (the kids ate it…
  • Thai Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

You can make it as hot as you want with the Sriracha, and you can always add more lemongrass and ginger if you want those flavours to come through more.INGREDIENT- 2.5 lbs butternut squash- 3 dried New Mexico chiles, seeded and cut into pieces- 1 cup boiling water- 1 tsp coriander seeds- 3 tbsp coconut oil- 1 large onion, diced- 2 shallots, diced- 6 garlic cloves, chopped- 1 stalk lemongrass, minced- 1/4 cup chopped fresh ginger- 4 cups vegetable stock- 1 tbsp brown sugar- 1 can light coconut…
  • Mexican Bread Pudding with Spiced Syrup

    22 Feb 2015 | 4:48 pm
    This recipe is a mash-up of Isa's bread pudding from Isa Does It and a recipe from the very first vegetarian cookbook I ever bought, Simple Vegetarian Recipes. I used the all white flour version of my Everyday Bread because it has a nice open crumb structure that easily soaks up the liquid. If you are using a denser or leaner bread, give it more time to soak. I think it's worth the time to use the vanilla bean, but your can sub in 2 tsp vanilla extract and forget heating it on the stove. The agar is probably not needed--I was just panicking that I was adding too much liquid. As written,…
  • Creamy Chickpeas and Biscuits

    1 Feb 2015 | 2:11 pm
    This is pure comfort food inspired by a frosty walk home one day. The creaminess of the coconut milk compliments the earthiness of the chickpeas and the sweetness of the roasted pepper. And all of that on top of a tender biscuit. The biscuits are a Reinhart-esque riff on The New Basics Cookbook recipeThe key here is to make sure all of the sides of your biscuit are cleanly cut--you can accomplish this with a good biscuit cutter, or by using a pastry cutter as I have suggested below. Cleanly cut sides allow the laminated dough to rise nice and high.INGREDIENTSCreamy Chickpeas- 3 tbsp oil-…
  • Butter Tart Squares

    24 Dec 2014 | 8:27 am
    Butter tarts are a staple of the Canadian holiday diet but are tricky to veganize. The problem is not replacing the butter, but the egg yolk which helps bind everything together as the tarts bake. I have gone for the butter tart square here because when I made tarts the filling kept rising right out of the shells and making a real mess. You can solve this problem, more or less (see the pic I posted on Facebook), by adding the extra flour indicated in the recipe, but I think this makes for a drier filling. So, the squares look a little messy, but the mess is contained in the pan and you still…

    During the first half of 2009, the Vegan Done Light newsletter ran what turned out to be its most controversial series, a hard-hitting, no-holds-barred, analysis of the research on vegetarian nutrition and supplements. I’d asked Michael Rae, once a vitamin industry insider, a long-time vegetarian (then, perhaps still?), and now VP of Research for the Calorie Restriction Society, whether he’d be willing to guest author an article for VDL. As an avid life extensionist, he’d been dishing out such information in drips and drabs for years through his writings at his previous…

    For years, I took a peanut butter sandwich to work every day for lunch, and I ate it alone. A PB sandwich was particularly easy to hold with one hand while I kept on grading papers and preparing labs or lessons. I chose that route so I could get home at a decent hour. I would've eaten dog food, or nothing, to accomplish that. I wasn't fast enough The only time I've ever dined out on workdays was at a high-pressure copy-editing job that I was offered on a temporary basis. I'd never done any copy-editing at all, so they hired me for a 2-week trial to test my speed and accuracy. Everyone else in…
  • Making the most of basil from your garden -- all year long

    Ken's beloved pesto pizza, made from our garden   Garden plots can be finnicky. We've tried planting everything in our 20-year-old raised bed, but it seems to favor basil above all other hot-weather plants. One reason is the increasing amount of shade on the raised bed, from trees growing nearby. Most of the vegetables we plant there fail to flourish in the limited sunlight, but the basil tolerates the shade well.   So we cater to the basil in summer. We nurture the soil with compost, no chemical fertilizers or pesticides. We cover the young basil plants with mesh to keep…

    Situated right in the heart of downtown on Market Street, you’d think Kombu would have snagged a prime location, and for all intents and purposes it couldn’t be in a better place. Stumbling distance from both the Powell and Montgomery BART stations, you’d be crazy to walk by without grabbing a seat… Except that if you’ve been in downtown San Francisco recently, there’s a strong chance that you already have, and multiple times at that, because it’s nearly impossible to find.

    Standing tall and pert in rows a dozen deep, forests of asparagus cover the tables at farmers markets as far as the eye can see. Classic harbingers of spring, their appearance signals a definitive end to winter, as though the slender green stalks had slain the seasonal demon themselves. Deep green, royal purple, ghostly white; all colors were represented on this early April day, each bundling growing more enticing, glowing more vibrantly in the rising morning sun than the last. With a heavy bag straining under the weight of this spring plunder, it would be easy to call it a day, feeling quite…

I’m talking about the wild foods growing in just about every corner of San Francisco, although most people would regard them as merely weeds or even invasive pests. Foraging may sound like an implausible venture in the middle of San Francisco, and yet right there on just the outskirts of Golden Gate Park, scores of not only edible but wholly delicious plants are thriving, hidden in…

Very cute. Thankfully, their formerly rather high price is starting to go down a bit. More kale sprouts in the near future. I haven’t done any baking in the longest time, too busy having fun with…

  • Sweet Red Onion and Cilantro Quick Bread | Eggless Baking

    1 Apr 2015 | 7:31 pm
    When I first started baking bread regularly, one of my go to recipe would be Quick Bread or Cheats Bread as I like to call it. No yeast, no kneading, no shaping by hand, and most importantly no waiting!! From start to finish an average quick bread can be ready in just over an hour. Warm, soft, super delicious with globs of butter, a good quick bread can make your day. I usually make these breads for breakfast, but you can bake them at night, cool  them, wrap them in foil and save them in the refrigerator for the next day. Planning a family get together? Quick breads are perfect - bake and…
  • Maraschino Cherry and Chocolate Chip Loaf

    10 Mar 2015 | 6:01 pm
    Last Saturday, I baked a fragrant Maraschino Cherry and Chocolate Chip loaf. It was meant for a get together with friends, some of whom I saw after a really very long time. It was a beautiful sunny day and we ate outdoors, picnic style. With the changing weather its just great to get out in the open. The warmth of the sun is reassuring and there are so many pretty wild flowers around.Continue reading »
  • Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Almond Breakfast Bars | Eggless Baking

    3 Mar 2015 | 7:05 pm
    Almonds are a nutrition powerhouse. I love cooking and baking with them and my latest passion is to bake with almond butter. Last month I baked the super delicious Cinnamon Almond Raisin Twists where I used almond butter as a spread in the twists. And last summer my Almond Butter Oats Cookies were such a treat that I keep getting repeat orders for them!!Continue reading »
  • Dates and Walnut Cake | Eggless Baking

    28 Feb 2015 | 8:44 pm
    Date and Walnut was and continues to be one of my favorite cakes. I remember baking it as a kid in high school. We always ate it with hot custard or vanilla ice cream. This recipe is heavily tweaked from my original as it had no eggs and is made with a mix of all-purpose and whole wheat flour. The eggless version comes out really well - great crumb, it slices well, and is incredibly moist and delicious.Continue reading »
  • Honey Wheat Bread | No Knead Bread Recipe

    26 Feb 2015 | 10:39 am
    Honey Wheat Bread is probably my favorite loaf to bake. I love the graininess of the bread crumb and the sweetness of the bread. It tastes so good toasted with lashings of butter and good home made fruit preserve. Personally, I like it with toasted to crunchy, buttered, and with lots of spreading honey!!Continue reading »

    Bryanna Clark Grogan
    16 Apr 2015 | 10:10 am
     UPDATE!  Jeannie, another Blogger, wrote and asked me how this shortening would work in a vegan "buttercream" frosting and how it would hold up at room temperature.  I didn't want to make a big dessert, since we overindulged at a family event over the last two days, so I made a very small version of my basic vegan "buttercream": 1/2 cup of the Rainforest Shortening, frozen and sliced into tiny cubes; 12 oz. organic powdered sugar, 5 tsp. non-dairy milk or other liquid of choice; 1 tsp. vanilla.  I beat it in an electric mixer until fluffy and left it at room…

    I haven't been blogging for weeks now!  Between the holiday, granddchildren visiting, and getting over a cough that just doesn't want to quit, time has gotten away from me!Today I made this soup for our lunch.  I've been making it since the 1970's, but have never posted it, for some reason. Took it for granted, I guess. It's a soup version of Francis Moore Lappe's recipe for Lentils, Monastery Style in her ground-breaking book "Diet for a Small Planet", which was very influential in starting me on the road to vegetarianism. I have made a few changes over the years-- this…

Dosa is thinner and crepe-like--sometimes crisp and sometimes softer. Uttapam is a thick pancake, with toppings of vegetables added to the "pancake" when it is just ready to be flipped over. Uttapam is sometimes called an "Indian pizza".  It's…

    Wayne Pacelle

    Many Americans reject fur because of the inhumane conditions animals like rabbits, mink, and foxes are subjected to. Photo by iStockphotoFollowing prior investigations by The HSUS, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) ordered Neiman Marcus in 2013 to stop falsely advertising animal fur as “faux”, or be subject to serious civil penalties. And yet, as recently as Tuesday, Neiman Marcus was still at it. We have now submitted another legal petition to the FTC seeking enforcement action against the multi-billion dollar retailer for selling three different items of animal fur apparel as “faux…

    The Canadian government confirms that sealers have killed about 2,000 animals in the first two days of the sealing season this year – a decade ago, that number would have been closer to 100,000. Photo by Rebecca Aldworth/HSIYesterday Carino Processing Ltd – Canada’s oldest and largest seal fur buyer – stated that the company has turned down $1 million in government funding for seal pelt purchases, noting that it already has pelts in storage that it cannot sell.

    When I first received a copy of Kim Lutz's new cookbook Super Seeds: The Complete Guide to Cooking with Power-Packed Chia, Quinoa, Flax, Hemp & Amaranth, I have to say I was a little surprised. It's a smallish, square book - more compact than a lot of the cookbooks you see on shelves these days. But its size is deceiving because it is absolutely packed - I'd go as far as saying it's power packed! - with all kinds of great information, and even better ideas about how to get more of these nutritious little miracles into your meals and your diet on a daily basis.

    I have to say, I'm glad Candle Cafe and the authors - Joy Pierson, Angel Ramos and Jorge Pineda - decided to focus on holiday foods. Thanksgiving and Christmas are a big deal, and each year when they come around, many vegans start to PANIC. Forums and online clubs are alight: "What am I going to make for my non-vegan family?", "What can I bring to this party that will knock the socks off my friends (or at least not have them looking at said food item suspiciously and asking, "what is it?")?", or "I'm hosting this year - what am I going to make??!!"

    We all love animals. This especially holds true for us vegans. So it comes as no surprise when we are captivated by the sight of the local wildlife wherever we may travel across this vast world of ours. I hold such fond memories of my vacation to Capetown, South Africa a few years ago. One of the indigenous animals that captured my heart, was the penguins! There are few places in the world that penguins may call “home”. The southern region of South Africa is indeed one of them. My itinerary included a must-see visit to Boulder’s Beach where the penguin colony is found. From…

    Many would-be travelers tell me that they hesitate visiting particular locations, in fear of not finding enough suitable meal options for a vegan. My response is always emphatically “Don’t worry!

    It had come to my attention recently that a veritable winter wonderland of ice castles had been created in Lincoln, New Hampshire. The fairytale-like spot is nestled among the towns of the White Mountains region. The Ice Castles concept was designed by a gentleman named Brent. He had created an ice rink, complete with ice slide and ice castle in his backyard to entertain his family. The rest is history, as the Ice Castles attraction is now enjoyed by all in four states: New Hampshire, Vermont, Minnesota, and Utah. The Ice Castles are built by hand. Each location grows more than 5,000 icicles…

There's something about the cover...the colours maybe, that lends itself to daydreaming about going on vacation somewhere with sunny skies, blue seas and lots of healthy, delicious food to eat! Plus, the name of the book obviously immediately makes you think of the Mediterranean, and - well - who doesn't love the Mediterranean?

She sought out my services because she felt lost when it came to shopping. After a phone consultation, she requested that I take her on a tour of a grocery store – specifically one in her neighborhood. Though we can easily shop at any grocery store – a vegan diet is simply vegetables, fruit, legumes and beans, grains, and nuts and seeds, after all – she requested a trip to Whole Foods.

    Hannah Johnson, contributor After 19 years of vegetarianism, I have decided to give veganism a whirl–again. Today is the second day (of my third attempt). I tried to be a vegan twice in high school, but I lost a hard battle to Cheez-Its and ice cream. My whole family is vegetarian, so growing up, it was easy for me to avoid meat and try delicious veggie alternatives. It is time again to try the next step. This time, I know I am eager and knowledgeable enough to go vegan– even if only for a month. In college, I am surrounded by an endless amount of fatty and dairy-rich food.

If I saw the question on my blog or social media, I would respond by saying that we decided not to label her diet or lifestyle and I explained why if I had the time. Since I was asked this question so frequently I recently decided to write a blog post on the topic to be transparent about our decision (see: Will you raise your daughter a vegan?). I’ve always been an open book on the blog and figured I could share our thoughts and also ask you to share your own experiences. I enjoy…

    If you have read the review for the breakfast scramble recipe that is also from the Forks over Knives Cookbook, then you would already know that I did not particularly like it and that I thought it was not worth the effort. That being said, the breakfast rancheros are just the breakfast scramble in tortillas with an added tomato and jalapeno sauce you have to make. So if you liked that recipe then you will likely enjoy this one too. In my opinion, the sauce was zesty and spicy and complimented the scramble very well. Also, eating the breakfast scramble wrapped in a tortilla was more enjoyable…

    Emily
    25 Mar 2015 | 4:18 pm
    This dish was not my favorite recipe in the Forks over Knives Cookbook. I ate it and it wasn’t bad but I would not make it again. The pesto was flavorful and paired perfectly with the caramelized onions and potatoes. However, the texture of this “pizza” was just weird. Also, the double starch of corn polenta and the sliced potatoes was an odd combination. I think it would taste better and be more texturally pleasing to just use a whole-wheat pizza crust instead of the polenta. Another tasty meal idea would be to spoon some of the pesto over a baked potato and generously fill it with…

    This refreshing Mexican inspired “salad” was delicious. With the name of White Bean and Tomato Salad I expected it to taste more Italian inspired; almost like a vegan pasta salad with beans instead of pasta. If I looked at the ingredients closer I would have figured it out much sooner. This recipe is so simple, just chopping veggies and opening cans of beans. For how simple this salad was to make, the results were incredible. The closest thing I could compare it to would be a mild bean salsa flavored with lime and cilantro. I ate a small bowl full of it at room temperature just from a…

    Patience is an important virtue that will help one lead a Christian life. However, patience is very difficult to learn, even for adults. If you have young children you will know hard it is for them to have patience and wait for even small things such as waiting to eat desert after a meal or waiting to get out of the car on a trip. “Are we there yet?” Patience is something that parents (especially me!) need to work on too because it is easy to be impatient with our children. Teaching a child patience seems like such and arduous task that can only be accomplished though many struggles, but…

    When I first started looking at blog recipes (before I had a blog) I saw that no-noodle Pad Thai was one of the most popular dishes. So, when I went to my local favorite vegan/raw vegan restaurant The SunCafe, I knew I had to try it. It was decent. Nothing to write home about, which is probably why you won’t find it on the menu anymore, but good enough that I took my leftovers home, and added even more flavor. I have to say, this is now one of those dishes I make over and over and over again and every time I make it it gets better as I fine-tune it to my favorite flavors. You can eat it…

Instead, she’d find that if she made the cookie dough and just left it in the fridge, the dough would mysteriously disappear. Very mysterious indeed. My goal was clear. I had to figure out a chocolate chip cookie dough protein ball recipe that tasted just like cookie dough. Challenge accepted! Surprisingly, a cookie that really is only defined by sugar, eggs, and butter is harder to replicate as a protein ball than I thought it would be. I had to make this recipe 4…

    You know those people that look at a dessert menu and no matter what else is on the menu, feel that compulsion to order the Creme Brûlée? I have never been one of those people until I tried this Pistachio Creme Brûlée vegan style custard. Usually a vanilla custard doesn’t seem to be worth it when you compare it to other dessert options.

    It’s happened! I’ve finally made you guys a how-to video  on how to dye eggs naturally and I am so excited to share it. I really hope you enjoy it! Please let me know if you have any questions about dyes. I have also included a couple recipes I used below. Even if you don’t do easter eggs, I hope that these dye options may help you someday with any natural dyes you may need for baking. Spirulina, beets and turmeric make the most beautiful frosting colors! If you are vegan, you HAVE to check out this ceramic egg…so cool! You can still dye them like regular eggs, but…

    I know it is very hard to recommend some products you like to use to other people, even though you think they might be the best you’ve tried. We are all so different and our skin and bodies react in a totally different, unpredicted way. It is like Jenna Marbles was saying in one of her videos recently that she wanted to have curly hair when she was little. So she asked her classmate, who had curly hair, what shampoo she was using. And as a kid, Jenna was totally sure she would get the same hair. Unfortunately it doesn’t work like that and us, women, we get influenced very easily…

    I have been a vegetarian for 5 years and vegan for soon to be one year. I can say that this has probably been one of the most important decisions in my life. I am proud of it and I have no regrets so far. Changing my diet habits hasn’t affected my health in a negative way, it has only brought improvements to the way I feel, to what I eat and to my lifestyle in general. For someone who is just thinking about going vegetarian, ethical arguments may not be enough, because there are still thousands of animals massacred on a daily basis anyway. But long term changes require a change of…
  • Have a hot vacation and protect your skin!

    I recently went on a vacation to Cuba and this post will be on the products I used to protect my skin from the sun damage. We all know how bad the sun is for your skin. Besides premature exhaustion, it can also lead too skin cancer. California has the highest rates of skin cancer due to the fact that they are constantly exposed to the sun. But even in Canada, where half of the year is winter basically, there are a lot of sunny days and you can’t leave your skin unprotected. So don’t go out without a good 20 SPF cream on. I was getting ready for my vacation and I thought “This…
  • Find out how mineral salt deodorants can help you prevent the odour.

    I came across these deodorants several times in different reviews. People were saying how amazing they are, how natural and easy to use. I was even more surprised when I saw the price – under $3. So I immediately added two deodorants in order to add to my shopping cart and get a free shipping from Well.ca (use my coupon 10off2015 and get $10 off). At first when I got them, I was a bit confused. How does this work? It is just a piece of mineral salt, a salt crystal. I have never heard of salt being used to prevent odour or sweating. Originally made in Thailand, where it is very hot and…
  • Replace your regular toothpaste with cruelty-free options

    I’ve been using these toothpastes for almost a year. I decided to turn to something more natural and obviously, something that is not tested on animals. I was checking on Iherb (get your discount by using the code WVD466) and I found several options, like Tom’s, Nature’s Gate, Now Solutions, Weleda, Auromere and others. All are between 4-10$, very affordable and also great quality. The two favourite are Xyli White from Now Solutions and Nature’s Gate toothpastes. Both are of the same price 4-5$ for 170 – 180 grams. Xyli White is a transparent gel based on baking…
