    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…

    Commonly regarded as merely a casual greeting, “Aloha” takes on an entirely different tone when spoken in Hawaii. The Aloha Spirit goes much deeper than surface pleasantries, and isn’t something that can be faked. It has to do with honesty, patience, and sharing, just for starters, which is why I can think of no company more aptly named than Aloha Tofu. Churning out soybean curds since 1950, the operation has always been a family business, focused on using high-quality ingredients while keeping the process as simple as possible. No added preservatives mean that none of the…

    Hannah (BitterSweet)

    There’s no such thing as a free meal, and that particular turn of phrase has never been more true in the metropolis of Honolulu. Demand for quality food is high but resources are considerably limited, to say the least, which can create a deleterious financial drain on anyone fond of eating out. It’s the price for paradise; always worth the cost, but difficult to sustain. That said, prime deals can be found, even within vegan parameters, for those willing to hunt. Strapped for cash and in need of a seriously hearty bowl of sustenance? Look no further than Zippy’s local…

    7 Jan 2015 | 6:22 pm
    Scones are like a quick bread and are perfect for baking in a pinch. Last weekend I made two breads - the cinnamon rolls and a vegetable bread. Both moved really fast and last night I knew I'd need another batch for the week. So instead of starting another batch of yeast bread I decided to make savory scones. Quick baking, a tasty bread that can be eaten warmed with butter, turned into a delicious sandwich, or even dunked in hot soup at dinner.Continue reading »

  • MY RECIPE FOR SPROUTED WHEAT BREAD (WITH MINIMAL FLOUR)

    Bryanna Clark Grogan
    20 Jan 2015 | 9:17 pm
    RECIPE UPDATED ON JAN. 23, 2015-- I added some photos and a few extra notes and corrected the size of the bread pans I use and the amount of water used in the recipe.  Sorry about that-- should not write recipes when I'm sick!I'm sorry it's taken so long to get this post (or any post!) up-- I've been sick with the flu.  But, at last I'm finishing this post on how to make a delicious sprouted wheat bread (with minimal flour) that is not heavy, flat and/or overly moist, that has the texture and appearance of a good whole wheat loaf.I started this journey because I was interested in…

    Bryanna Clark Grogan
    5 Jan 2015 | 5:09 pm
    HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!Yesterday, I checked the refrigerator for greens that needed using up.  We live on an island, so we only shop every 2 weeks.  I'm trying to avoid any food waste (watching this documentary has strengthened my resolve!), so I moved all the vegetables out of the refrigerator drawers (filled them with condiments) and I have my veggies right in the center of the fridge, with the ones that need to be used up first in the front, so that I don't forget about them.  Anyway, I had spinach and baby bok choy to use up, so I turned to two of my older recipes.

    Bryanna Clark Grogan
    19 Dec 2014 | 1:03 pm
    This was our lunch the other day and you could hardly hope for a more delicious, inexpensive and healthful, even though it was made from simple ingredients and leftovers.  The soup is my rendition of an Italian soup and, in true Italian style, the flavor belies the simplicity of the few ingredients.  My husband raved over it and wants me to make it regularly.The sandwich was made with thin slices of my second batch of homemade sprouted wheat bread made with minimal flour.  (Read about my first trial here.)  I didn't have much to make a sandwich out of, so I…

    8 Dec 2014 | 9:41 pm
    JAN. 2, 2015: SEE UPDATE IN RECIPE BELOW.If you read my blog post from 1 week ago about making sprouted wheat bread, you'll know I'm experimenting with making breads from dough made from sprouted hard wheat kernels, with little or no flour.  My first loaf bread came out beautifully, but the dough was so sticky that it took me WAY too long to clean up my food processor and mixer.  I didn't know if I'd try it again (after soaking everything in warm water, it took me about 20 minutes of scrubbing to clean everything, and the sponge had to go into the garbage can!). But after I let the…

    Want to buy a pressure cooker?Unsure which model is best for you? (or best for your buck?)Think you gotta have an InstaPot? Read this post before you buy.Let me get this out of the way first: I’m not being paid to review either of these items.If you happen to buy one from clicking on a link, I’ll pick up a few pennies from an Amazon commission, but I honestly have no vested interest if you buy one or the other, or none at all.

    Animal Rights: The Abolitionist Approach

  • Is Veganism Elitist? No. But Nonveganism Is!

    Gary L. Francione
    14 Jan 2015 | 2:04 am
    A purported objection to veganism I’ve heard about 12 million times: “But veganism is elitist.” What complete nonsense. Elitism involves promoting a perceived superiority of some sort. It involves the idea of according less moral value to the “inferior.” As 2 seconds of thinking make clear, veganism is not elitist in any way. On the contrary. Veganism is about rejecting the idea that it’s morally acceptable to exploit sentient nonhumans because they are “inferior.” Nonvegans believe in the “inferiority” of animals. It is they who…

    Gary L. Francione
    12 Jan 2015 | 1:24 pm
    I had the very great pleasure to meet and share a (vegan) meal with Chris Hedges and his partner, actor Eunice Wong. Hedges is, with Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn, one of the leading progressive writers and thinkers of our time. Hedges wrote a column that included some of what was discussed at our meeting. When people like Hedges and Wong see the common sense of veganism, and recognize its connection to the ethic of nonviolence, you know that a paradigm shift is occurring. If you are not vegan, please go vegan. Veganism is about nonviolence. First and foremost, it’s about nonviolence to…
  • The Vegan Society is a “Proud” Partner With Vivisectors

    Gary L. Francione
    8 Jan 2015 | 10:59 am
    In August 2014, I wrote an essay about the fact that The Vegan Society in the U.K. had become “corporate partners” with a bank that invested in “sustainable” animal agriculture. Now I write about The Vegan Society joining a campaign being led by a group that promotes vivisection. Here is a page from The Vegan Society site that states: The Vegan Society prides itself on being an evidence-based organisation with an active Research Advisory Committee. Our policy work is guided by accurate information based on the latest scientific evidence and research. We have many…

  • Veganism, PETA, “Personal Purity,” and Principles of Justice

    Gary L. Francione
    4 Jan 2015 | 12:32 pm
    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) says: Being vegan is about helping animals, not maintaining personal purity. Boycotting products that may contain trace amounts of animal products can actually be harmful to animals in the long run. For example, by refusing to eat a veggie burger from a restaurant because the bun may contain traces of milk or eggs, you are discouraging that restaurant from offering vegan options because it is seems too difficult a task. So use our list as a guide, and do your best to avoid animal ingredients. This is speciesist. A social movement that seeks…

    Wayne Pacelle
    30 Jan 2015 | 2:58 pm
    Last week, Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring burnished his pro-animal record when he established an Animal Law unit in an attorney general’s office. The unit will serve as a resource for local law enforcement and state agencies on animal fighting and animal cruelty prosecutions, providing the expertise and firepower to bring those responsible for animal cruelty, suffering, and abuse to justice. For the unit’s first project, it’s partnering with The HSUS to reach out to Virginia pet stores as part of an effort to crack down on puppy mills. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman…
  • Exposing 'Kill Buyers' Who Feed the Horse Slaughter Pipeline

    Wayne Pacelle
    29 Jan 2015 | 1:17 pm
    Two high profile cases this month involving “kill buyers,” who buy horses at auction to send them to slaughter, have brought the bloody, predatory business of horse slaughter out into the light of day. They’ve also shown the kill buyer for what he truly is – the worst enemy of horses in the United States today. Horses destined for slaughter are dragged and whipped into trucks and endure long journeys without food, water, or rest. Many die or sustain injuries during transport. Photo: Kathy Milani Every year, kill buyers funnel more than 100,000 American horses – working, racing, and…

    28 Jan 2015 | 9:49 am
    On Tuesday, GoDaddy pulled an ad scheduled for Super Bowl Sunday broadcast after expressing surprise that the spot featuring an online puppy seller sparked such an immediate backlash in social media. The ad is just the latest false note on animal issues from GoDaddy, whose founder and former CEO famously flew halfway around the world to shoot a museum-full of African animals, then had the audacity to claim that he killed the elephant for the benefit of local villagers. It just so happened that the elephant was a large male with enormous tusks – the type of elephant prized as…

    Today, The HSUS and 21 other organizations – from the Detroit Zoo to the Center for Biological Diversity and the Wisconsin Federated Humane Societies to the Sault Sainte Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians – petitioned the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to downlist wolves from “endangered” to “threatened” status across most of their range in the lower 48 states. We took this action, along with so many other wolf-protection organizations, to maintain critical federal protections for the fragmented populations numbering just 5,000 or so wolves in the coterminous United States, and…

    Today’s editorial pages at the nation’s biggest newspapers are a tale of two starkly different worldviews. One, The New York Times, slams the hideous government-financed cruelties documented at the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center in Nebraska. The other, The Wall Street Journal, slams California voters and legislators for enacting modest animal welfare standards through Prop 2 and a closely related law restricting sales of eggs from hens in extreme confinement, and calls for the latter measure to be overturned. The Wall Street Journal stays silent on terrible animal abuses like the…

    These dumplings are a vegan version of a traditional German dumpling called Semmelknödel. They are often served with a mushroom gravy or as a replacement for potatoes with goulash. We enjoyed them with a special seitan goulash made with dark beer. It was a delicious meal for a cold day. Yield: 8 large dumplings Ingredients: 10 ounces of day old bread (about 8 slices), torn in pieces 1½ cups non-dairy milk, warmed 1 vegetable bouillon cube 1 tablespoon soy flour or cornstarch 2-3 tablespoons parsley, chopped pinch nutmeg splash olive oil 1 small onion, finely chopped Directions: Tear the…

    There are many different goulash recipes that can be adapted to be vegan. We found seitan to be the best meat substitute. This recipe calls for a dark lager beer like the German Schwarzbier. We really enjoyed the recipe and will be having it more often over the cold months. Serving Size: 4 Ingredients: 1 lb. seitan, cut in bite sized pieces 1/2 quart dark lager beer, e.g. Schwarzbier 2 cups vegetable bouillon or seitan cooking broth 1 lb. onions, chopped 2 tablespoons vegan margarine 2 tablespoons tomato paste salt and pepper 1 teaspoons sweet paprika powder pinch cayenne powder or chili…

    31 Jan 2015 | 9:24 pm
    This is a very simple mixture recipe, which can be made very fast and easily at home. It has minimum of spices , so nothing can go wrong with the recipe. Kids love to eat it, as it simple, less spicy, crunchy and filling. My next door neighbor taught me this, before I moved out, and re-located to a  bit distinct place.( Earlier either she used to pack and bring it or come at my place and make it for me :)  )This assorted mixture is mixed with crunchy bites like roasted peanuts, cashew-nuts, fried beaten rice and cornflakes. What you want to add in your mixture is individuals choice.
  • Rice with Vegetable Nawabi

    27 Jan 2015 | 8:53 pm
    Nawabi curry, basically a Mughlai dish, characterized by its rich and creamy sauces. This one is one of the Nita Mehta's cookbook recipe. Recently I have been liking all the recipes by her. This one has a medley of vegetables. Although this is a bit low-calorie version, the authentic taste is retained by using an array of selected spices. Rather than fried vegetables, I have used boiled vegetables to cut down the calories. Enjoy this great recipe, rich in taste with plain white rice or hot parathas. Ingredients:1 1/2 cups vegetables, Chopped in big pieces (Cauliflower, French beans, carrot,…

    I was honored to be on the Diane Rehm Show for an hour yesterday discussing California’s Prop 2. You can listen to it here.It was a big week in newspapers: Both the Sacramento Bee and the NY Times editorialized on farm animal protection, specifically slamming the federal government’s torture of animals in taxpayer-funded meat industry research centers. And the LA Times ran a potent feature on the soaring popularity of meat reduction in the US.HSUS joined forces with several environmental groups this week in suing the EPA over its failure to regulate emissions from farm animal factories.

A classic bright red (aka the love of my colorful life), a sparkly silver for when I feel like going to a rave/the Andy Warhol museum, a deep blue to bring out my dramatic artsy side, and a pale pink, for when I feel like being understated (SHUT UP I CAN BE SUBTLE).  So not only are they vegan, Ella+Mila polishes are “5-free”: Ella+Mila nail colors contain no Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde…

    Incredible Smoothies

  • Green Smoothies For Arthritis & Gout

    Tracy Russell
    13 Jan 2015 | 8:11 am
    “Is there a green smoothie for arthritis?” I get that question a lot. So today, I decided to round up some research that may help you create a special smoothie blend to ease your aching joints. Not only can a daily green smoothie help you lose weight, shedding those extra pounds can alleviate excess stress on your joints, decreasing the risk of wear and tear. Losing weight also may reduce your level of inflammation. Fruits and vegetables that are high in carotenoids have been shown to reduce inflammation and lower the risk of getting arthritis. One such carotenoid is…
  • Pumpkin-Carrot Green Smoothie Recipe

    Tracy Russell
    17 Dec 2014 | 7:26 am
    I love pumpkin green smoothies and this delicious blend is no exception! I used pumpkin puree as the roasted pumpkin is going to have more flavor. If you want to add fresh pumpkin, I would add 1 full cup of pumpkin and only add four ounces of almond milk as the fresh pumpkin isn’t going to be as thick as the puree. I added a little pineapple to accent the pumpkin and sweeten the smoothie. Pineapple is also very nutritious and contains anti-inflammatory properties. The chia seeds help to give this smoothie a little healthy omega-3s. They are also a great source of protein and calcium.

    The holidays are notorious for sugary treats. From the office Christmas party to the family cookie exchange, everyone loves to bake and share their favorite creations. And there’s nothing wrong with allowing yourself a little indulgence once in a while. My mom makes the best vanilla fudge, and even I enjoy it once a year. However, things can get out of hand during the holidays. Diets get tossed aside, pants get tight, and that “blarg” feeling hits an all-time high (along with the guilt). Instead of beating yourself up over all of the holiday treats you’re indulging in…

Pineapples have anti-inflammatory properties and are great for people who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. They are also a great source of fiber. Just one cup of pineapple contains 9% of your daily recommended value of fiber. Avocados are a great source of B vitamins and healthy fats. Just 1/4 of an avocado contains 5% of your daily recommended value of omega-3 and 8% of your daily recommend value of omega-6 essential fatty acids. The pear also helps to add a little more dietary…
  • Healthy Coconut and Macadamia Nut Treats

    Tracy Russell
    22 Sep 2014 | 12:46 pm
    I got the idea for these healthy coconut and macadamia nut treats when I moved from Massachusetts to upstate New York this summer. I needed to eat up the food in my refrigerator before the move, and that’s where this tasty little treat idea came from. I had a bag of Macadamia nuts and cashews that were open and didn’t have a lot left in them. I use just one tablespoon of raw honey as a sweetener in this recipe, which I find to be enough. Make sure you use coconut butter and not coconut oil. They are not the same thing and coconut oil will make them too soft. It can be hard to find…

  • 100 Best Juices, Smoothies and Healthy Snacks to Kickstart 2015

    Emma Larocque
    22 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    I'm a big fan of juices and smoothies. I love starting my day with a glass of water, and then a glass of power-packed nutrition. I think it's something about knowing I'm getting several servings of fruit and veggies into my body before I do anything else. I've never been a lover of breakfast, so when I discovered juice and smoothies, it felt like a no-brainer. Emily von Euw's brand new book 100 Best Juices, Smoothies and Healthy Snacks hit the spot from the word go.

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.

But recently published research from The University of Manchester and NatCen Social Research concludes that not only do old folks (those is their 70s and 80s) still have sex, but they’re having frequent sex.  Remember when news began reporting rampant chlamydia outbreaks in old person’s homes?  In 2010, the CDC reported that rates of STDs in seniors had doubled from 2000 to 2010. To battle this, Medicare even offers free STD screenings for seniors. One important thing to note is that the study…

Either way, since McDonald’s controls the majority beef and chicken production in America, less sales at McDonald’s means less meat consumption.

Growing up in the south in Mobile, Alabama, our tables were filled with normal southern fare- gumbo, etouffee, boiled crawfish.  So, my family has high flavor expectations, while harboring low opinions of vegan food. One dish that opened their eyes to the wonders of veganism has been my interpretation of the formerly mentioned, etouffee.

  • But Plants Feel Pain Too

    avatar
    6 Jan 2015 | 12:12 pm
    Many antagonistic meat-eaters love to jeer at vegans and vegetarians and say lines such as “what about all the plants you’re murdering, they feel pain too”. On one side of the coin, it’s a bit of a cop out because they don’t want to think about the signficant pain and suffering they’re causing animals; on the other side of the coin they have got half of a reasonable argument. Recent discoveries into the sentience level of plants1 has raised concerns over whether they’re able to feel pain and discomfort. This of course raises a difficult conundrum – is it therefore just…
  • The Horrific Life Of New Zealand Bobby Calves

    avatar
    7 Jul 2014 | 6:17 pm
    Most people believe that the way a cow produces milk for humans is as natural as a bee pollinating a flower. The majority of dairy food consumers don’t realise that these cows are typically artificially impregnated each year and that over one million young babies (called “bobby calves” by the farming industry), are considered to be an annoying waste product. The fact is, that while cows naturally produce milk, it’s only as much as is needed to feed their offspring when they have them. In order to produce it in the vast quantities demanded for mass human sale and consumption,…

    29 Jun 2014 | 2:27 pm
    Living a vegan lifestyle and eating a diet free from animal products can not only be rewarding in terms of ethics, it can also pay off in terms of health1. Fruit, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and pulses all have huge benefits beyond merely keeping a healthy body weight. An increased intake of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, including antioxidants, can help prevent a number of conditions. Significant studies have proven that people eating a plant based diet live a longer life than the average meat-eater2. This is not something that the powerful meat industry likes to be heard and…
  • The Unsustainable Use Of Grain Feed

    avatar
    18 Nov 2013 | 6:39 pm
    When counting the cost of meat production there are many factors to consider – money, environmental impact, water expenditure are obvious, but one major cost that is sometimes forgotten about is grain feed. While water and environment have localised implications for New Zealand, grain has become a more globalised issue. It is often produced in third-world nations and shipped overseas rather than being used to feel local populations, or produced in the west and never exported for the inexpensive and efficient source of nutrition that it is. The new middle class in emerging nations…
  • 1,000 Litres Of Water To Make 1 Litre Of Milk

    avatar
    26 Jun 2013 | 1:30 pm
    When discussing the “price” of milk it’s easy to overlook an important component – instead of the numbers on a shopping receipt, it’s the cost in terms of water that the public needs to become far more aware of. When all the different requirements are tallied, it becomes clear that a litre of milk requires a disproportionately large amount of water to produce. This is the true cost to us as a society, one that is slowly but steadily degrading our environment and wasting our natural resources. In New Zealand the dairy industry’s demand for water is immense,…

  • The Best Way to Teach Children Patience

    Emily
    28 Jan 2015 | 3:39 pm
    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…

    This flavorful and healthy vegan substitute for scrambled eggs is a great way to mix things up for breakfast. For me, breakfast is when I am most likely to stick to one routine without venturing out to try something new. I currently eat a tasty bowl of oatmeal every morning with dried cranberries, chia seeds, and almond milk because I do not usually feel like cooking or have time to cook a large meal for breakfast. The cauliflower in this dish really takes on the flavors of the seasonings and actually turns a bright yellow from the color of the turmeric. Since it is basically only vegetables…
  • Citrusy Black Bean Taquitos: Forks Over Knives Cookbook Project

    Emily
    11 Dec 2014 | 1:27 pm
    The citrus in this recipe comes from the zest and juice of 2 oranges. However, the navel oranges available at my local grocery store are usually flavorless and watery so I decided to use clemintines. Even though the clementines have much more flavor, they were very sweet and the resulting taquitos tasted weird because they were too sweet. I think this recipe would work better with the zest and juice of a lime instead. The flavor combination was just weird. They were edible though and I wasn’t dreading eating the leftovers but I would not make them again. This was my first experience…

    20 Nov 2014 | 2:35 pm
    I found this warm pasta dish to be lacking in balance. The contrast of colors was visually appealing and the aroma of the sun-dried tomatoes simmered with onions in white wine smelled delicious. I was disappointed however when I took my first bite. The textures of the ingredients were all similarly mushy with a very slight chewiness. Think al dente pasta with the texture of wilted spinach, garbanzo beans, and slightly chewy sun dried tomatoes. It was also somewhat dry. I think it would have tasted better with a cauliflower cream sauce to tie the flavors together and to help with the…
  • Cashew Milk

    6 Nov 2014 | 9:00 pm
    I know that there are many people out there that make their own milk from cashews, almonds, or any other types of nuts, but I just do not have the time to invest because a plant based diet already requires some extra time for washing and chopping fruits and vegetables. I have heard that it is really quite simple but I have not yet learned how to make homemade nut milks. Fortunately for me, I noticed that my local Walmart started selling Silk cashew milk in both original and unsweetened flavors. I feel silly for being so excited to try it but I must say this is now my favorite plant-based milk…

    If you live in Canada, there are so many socially responsible brands locally produced that you can try. The market is conquered by cruelty-free and organic products every day. The consumers are still winning, because prices for these goods go down. Companies try to reach out a larger audience, by researching for cheaper alternative ingredients, at the same time maintaining the safety and quality level. So, as I was mentioning in my other posts, it is not a privilege anymore to be able to purchase vegan, organic and cruelty-free stuff. Anyone can afford it now. Hopefully, there won’t be…

I have made an analysis of some of the cereals and beans concerning their nutritional value, such as calories, fibre, protein and others that should help you making your decision. They are really worth of your attention, can replace potatoes, pasta and other less healthy stuff. First of all lets talk about OATS. A small…
