    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…

    Making your own homemade nut milks in your blender is actually quite easy. I was reluctant to do it for the longest time. Then I finally made my own almond milk and was shocked at just how easy it is! DIY Nut Milk Recipes (And A Bonus Recipe For Rejuvelac) Why Make Your Own Nut Milks Store bought plant milks are not as fresh as homemade. They can also contain additives (preservatives, stabilizers), chemical residues from the packaging, and many are sweetened with added sugars that are simply not good for you. When you make your own nut milks, however, you know exactly what is in your almond…

    This month's top 10 workout songs cover a wide array of tempos and styles that will complement an equally diverse range of workouts. For low rep exercises that strengthen your body—crunches, weights and so on—you might start with one of the slower tracks from David Guetta or Flo Rida. For a cardio routine—running, ropes, and the like—consider one of the faster numbers from alt-rock favorites Bleachers or club stars Yellow Claw.If the feel is more important to you than the tempo, there are tracks spanning 100-128 beats per minute (BPM) and a variety of genres. The mix includes the…

  • Thai Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

    15 Mar 2015 | 6:55 pm
    This soup has Thai inspired undertones that let the roasted squash still be the star of the dish. 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…
  • Lemon Squares

    23 Dec 2014 | 4:17 pm
    Vegan Mom loves lemon squares for the holidays but has been unhappy with any vegan recipe I have tried. So I started experimenting. My basic thinking was to use potato and a variety of binders and proteins to replace the egg so that the filling would both rise and bind in the oven. These are a little more firm/gummy than I would like but I think the recipe is good enough to post. The top bakes evenly to a golden colour and the filling is nice and lemony. You can fiddle with the recipe as you see fit.INGREDIENTSCrust- 1/4 cup sugar- 1/4 tsp salt- 1 cup all purpose flour- 1/2 cup vegan…

    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…

    Before embarking on a cheese-tasting journey, one must will themselves to forget everything previously assumed about the essential experience of vegan cheese. Erase those early memories of eating yellow-colored wax back in the early 90’s, concocting funky wallpaper paste in home kitchens during fits of DIY determination, and even the reasonably melted shreds smothering dairy-free pizzas today. Even as a cheese-lover in a previous life, the flavors contained in these small, simple packages are a step up from anything I had enjoyed as a child. With or without that frame of reference,…

    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 »

  • MY HOMEMADE COLLOIDAL OAT SKIN CREAM

    Bryanna Clark Grogan
    23 Mar 2015 | 4:31 pm
    My Homemade Colloidal Oatmeal Skin CreamI know this is a food blog, but I just have to share this skin cream recipe with you-- actually, though you wouldn't really want to eat it, it wouldn't harm you to do so!I have an off-and-on problem with eczema on my face and chest, and it's been "on" for the last few years.  It's better since I got rid of all detergents and palm oil from my life (there are detergents in SO many things-- shampoos, conditioners, etc-- and many of them derived from palm oil). I don't use anything scented.  I won't go into everything I do or use, or have tried,…
  • FERMENTED OAT AND URAD DAL UTTAPAM-- SO TASTY!

    Bryanna Clark Grogan
    22 Mar 2015 | 11:04 pm
    UPDATE MARCH 23, 2015: I MADE A VARIATION THIS MORNING-- FRUIT UTTAPAM!  SEE END OF RECIPEThis is something I've been working on for several weeks.  Uttapam (or ooththappam or Uthappa) is a South Indian or Tamil pancake-like dish made with a batter of grain (such as rice, semolina or millet), or grain and legumes, similar to dosa batter. 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…
  • MY 1ST VEGAN VERSION OF A FAMOUS PERUVIAN DESSERT: SUSPIRO DE LIMEÑA

    Bryanna Clark Grogan
    11 Mar 2015 | 5:49 pm
    Oh, yes, there will be another version!  But I just couldn't wait to post about it.Suspiro de Limeña is a romantic name for a luscious dessert with a long history.  The name means "A Limenian Woman's Sigh".  It's a fabulous Moorish-based dessert that can be traced back to the early 1800's in Peru. (Most rich and sweet Spanish desserts have Moorish origins.) Evidently is was created by Amparo Ayarez for her poet husband, José Galvez.  Because the dessert is both intensely sweet and delicate at the same time, he named it in honor of his wife.  It is immensely…
  • MAKE LUSCIOUS,VELVETY DRINKING CHOCOLATE WITH THIS HOMEMADE MIX

    Bryanna Clark Grogan
    26 Feb 2015 | 8:01 pm
    In 2010, I wrote a blog post about a new (to me) discovery-- drinking chocolate. "Technically speaking, hot cocoa and hot chocolate are two very different beverages. Hot cocoa comes from a powder, while hot chocolate is (once again, technically speaking) what many call "drinking chocolate" or "sipping chocolate" - it's made from chopped bits of chocolate or small chocolate pellets that are melted (slowly and painstakingly) and then blended with milk, cream and/or  water. True hot chocolate tends to be much denser and richer than its powdery relative.  Interestingly enough, some…
  • SWEET AND SAVORY (INTERNATIONAL) VEGAN RECIPES FOR "PANCAKE TUESDAY"

    Bryanna Clark Grogan
    17 Feb 2015 | 1:45 pm
    It's Pancake Tuesday (Shrove Tuesday)-- I almost forgot! What is Shrove Tuesday and what does it have to do with pancakes?  Here's a short history.  It's known as "Mardi Gras" in French-speaking regions (including New Orleans, as I'm sure you are aware). "Mardo Gras" means "Fat Tuesday", the day before Ash Wednesday, when Christian Lent begins.  It's referred to as "Fat Tuesday" because fat and eggs, etc. had to be used up before the Lenten fast. Cakes, rich breads and pastries, and pancakes were made in order to consume these foods and not let them go to waste, and also…

    Animal Rights: The Abolitionist Approach

  • “Journeys” Into Speciesism

    Gary L. Francione
    14 Mar 2015 | 5:35 am
    For some reason that eludes me, some animal advocates believe that because it took them while to go vegan, the position of the animal rights movement should be that individual “journeys” are just fine. But that is absurd. Imagine someone saying, “It took me a while to stop being a racist so I think that the civil rights movement should promote the idea that it’s fine for everyone to learn to embrace equality at their own pace. If someone thinks that it’s okay to discriminate against people of color, we cannot make judgments. To say that equality is an unequivocal…
  • The Ringling Circus Elephants: Another “Victory” That Isn’t

    Gary L. Francione
    8 Mar 2015 | 8:31 am
    According to the animal welfare corporations, the decision to remove elephants from the Ringling Circus in three years represents a victory of monumental proportions. In fact, I received this email (my email program thought it was a “scam”!) from Paul Shapiro of HSUS, who, quoting no less a figure than Nelson Mandela, declared it to be a “historic announcement”: (click to enlarge) I have been expressing my view that to call this a “victory” is beyond absurd and I have gotten the usual reaction from “animal people” who are so taken in by the…
  • 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…

    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…

  • The Other Guys Seeking Rhino Horns and Elephant Tusks

    Wayne Pacelle
    27 Mar 2015 | 2:39 pm
    There are only 4,880 black rhinos left in the world, and they are critically endangered. Photo by Bob Koons/The HSUSYesterday, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife made two important announcements about trophy hunting. The good news is that the Service extended a ban on imports of sport-hunted elephant trophies from Zimbabwe, where an autocratic ruler has made a mess of the resource-rich nation’s wildlife management program. Extending the ban is the right move, not only because the wildlife programs of several nations with elephants are weak, but also because of the larger poaching crisis that…

Photo by iStockphotoWithout much of anybody but The HSUS and the participants in the case noticing, we gained a major victory this week in our decades-long quest to assert and defend the federal government’s right to crack down on animal abuse. The U.S. Supreme Court elected not to hear an appeal of a federal appellate court ruling upholding a key federal anti-cruelty law. The Supreme Court…

  • Cutting off Markets, Not Fins

    Wayne Pacelle
    24 Mar 2015 | 2:16 pm
    It is estimated between 26 and 73 million sharks are killed every year for their fins. Photo by EastShark finning, as is customarily done, requires that a fishermen haul a shark from the ocean, slice its fin off, and then throw the rest of the shark – often still alive – back into the ocean. This leaves the shark not only with gaping, mortal wounds, but also with no ability to swim. The creature is doomed, and the death a lingering one. It is estimated that fishermen kill between 26 and 73 million sharks every year for their fins, which are the central ingredient in shark fin soup. This…

    The Sparrow Fund exists to help animals in need, like Phoenix, a five-month-old husky puppy who was found on fire in a dumpster. Clayton Van Wert was throwing out trash at a dump site on the edge of the Red Lake Indian Reservation in Minnesota last month when he heard whimpering and banging coming from a burning dumpster nearby. “I looked in and I could see this figure of a dog that was coming through the flames,” said Van Wert. He reached into the flames and pulled the still kicking puppy, a 5-month-old husky mix, out of the ashes. “All of his fur that was stuck to his body resembled a…

    Vegan spinach crepes are rather difficult to find. But, after searching for quite awhile, we found this great recipe on Vegan Kitty Patrol (VKP). The crepes are delicious and you can use them with many different fillings or sauces. They use the traditional vegan ingredients and cook up very well. As a special spring brunch, we enjoyed them with a vegan “Alfredo” sauce and fava beans. We made the sauce using soy yogurt, a bit of mild mustard, nutritional yeast, minced onion, a splash of white wine salt and white pepper. We garnished added the fava beans to the sauce and put a few…

    There are numerous reasons that can cause a relationship to come across the risk of breaking up. With couples counseling, the pair can find effective ways of avoiding such situations so that they continue to be together for as long as required. There are several issues that necessitate this type of counseling including infidelity and having third parties in the relationship. These are persons who play a role of bringing in a shift in the relationship to the point where the partners might no longer see eye-to-eye on different issues. Only with the help of a counselor can they both find a…

    14 May 2014 | 11:50 pm
    When times are tough, one of the best solutions to try and solve a dilemma is to talk it over with someone. Whether professional or not this allows for people to either discuss it in order to try and reach some kind of catharsis, to try and see the problem from a new perspective or even to just find that they have someone out there who understands what they are going through. However each person is unique and sometimes the traditional ways of counseling, that being finding a therapist, may not be appropriate or helpful for all individuals. Instead there are a couple of easy to reach alternate…

Whether it is relationships between husbands and wives, man and woman, parents and children or even between individuals, there are situations where there is bound to be friction and differences of opinion. However it is important to find out ways and means by which these differences of perceptions can be managed without damaging the entire edifice called relationship.

    Silk has a new non-dairy milk! It’s made of cashews, which we rightly celebrate as the king of nuts for its dairy-mimicking properties. It is so creamy!Usually I drink unsweetened plain almond milk, so after Silk sent me some coupons, I picked up the unsweetened cashew milk. Silk also makes an “original” that has some sugar, and they’re releasing vanilla and chocolate flavors this summer. The chocolate cashew milk is going to be undrinkably rich, like seriously intense. In the meantime, though, you could make a hardcore hot chocolate with the plain.But back to this unsweetened…

    Sometimes after posting a delicious green smoothie on the Incredible Smoothies Facebook page, I will get a comment or two from people who are concerned about the sugar content of the fruit that I used. Their concerns are twofold: 1) They have heard that fructose causes weight gain, and fruits contain fructose, therefore fruits must cause weight gain, and 2) Fruits are “high in sugar”, and sugar is bad for your metabolism and will derail weight loss – or increase the risk for diabetes. And then I get people who refer to fruit as “sugary junk food”, or they just…
  • 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…

    What do you think of when you hear the phrase Adopt A Cow? Perhaps one of the many farm sanctuaries who rescue and advocate for animals destined for the food supply? I hate to be the one to tell you, but there's a much different use for the Adopt A Cow idea, and it's all thanks to dairy-based cheese.

    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.

    This month's top 10 workout songs cover a wide array of tempos and styles that will complement an equally diverse range of workouts. For low rep exercises that strengthen your body—crunches, weights and so on—you might start with one of the slower tracks from David Guetta or Flo Rida. For a cardio routine—running, ropes, and the like—consider one of the faster numbers from alt-rock favorites Bleachers or club stars Yellow Claw.If the feel is more important to you than the tempo, there are tracks spanning 100-128 beats per minute (BPM) and a variety of genres.

    Recently it’s become trendy for many rescue groups and individuals to rescue dogs from the South Korean meat market trade and adopt them to families in the United States. Many of these dogs have suffered unimaginable abuse and it is impossible to know how they will adjust to a home.  While there have been great success stories with some of the adoptions, there have been many that did not work out. Because most owners do not understand the breed, many of the dogs are surrendered to shelters where they are almost always euthanized. The lucky few, like Alex, end up in rescues that…

My dinner included a main entree of baked tofu, rice, and mixed veggies(diced zucchini, tomatoes, onions) in a flavorful tomato sauce. A side salad with bread accompanied the meal.

    Food philosophies and diet crazes are like excuses, and butt-holes– because everyone has one. Americans tend to jump to extremes with righteous ideologies of what is most healthy. I believe it’s all about the approach. i.e. Eat Paleo, but don’t eat raw beef everyday. Try the Atkins diet, but without miserably low blood sugar. Like any diet, a vegan lifestyle can be healthy, but just because food is meat and dairy-free, doesn’t mean the research and development crew at Monsanto didn’t straight up build what you’re eating. Generally speaking, many foods that are “vegan…

The pregnancy seems to get the most attention while the period after having a baby seems to be all about getting back to your old self as soon as possible. At least in the media. I guess I expected that for myself too, but it’s not my personal reality nor is it for many other new moms I’ve talked to. We’re almost 5 months in and I still don’t…

    It can arrive as a surprise that being a vegetarian isn’t a globally understood concept. Animal products often form the foundation of foreign cuisine – and whilst we may not agree with that, it is unfortunately fact, and can make eating whilst travelling a difficult road to navigate.

  • Paradigms And The Pre-Vegan World: The Most Widely Accepted Wrong Throughout History

    Christian Sanchez
    8 Feb 2015 | 4:35 pm
    “If we are ever going to see a paradigm shift, we have to be clear about how we want the present paradigm to shift. We must be clear that veganism is the unequivocal baseline of anything that deserves to be called an “animal rights” movement. If “animal rights” means anything, it means that we cannot morally justify any animal exploitation; we cannot justify creating animals as human resources, however “humane” that treatment may be. We must stop thinking that people will find veganism “daunting” and that we have to promote something less than veganism. If we explain the…
  • Becoming A Vegan

    Christian Sanchez
    6 Feb 2015 | 4:19 pm
    Do you think it’s wrong to harm fellow animals unnecessarily? If so, then you already accept the vegan ethic as truth. The next step is to live accordingly which means living as a vegan. All animal use is forever unjustified, which means that all animal use IS unnecessary because we can live healthy, fullfiling lives without using fellow animals. If you can live optimally healthy and happily without using, exploiting, and harming others then why not? Becoming vegan is not only easy, but is the best decision anyone can ever make. It’s the most important step anyone can take in…
  • Why Vegan?

    Christian Sanchez
    25 Sep 2014 | 4:52 am
    A vegan is a person who avoids using and consuming animals and animal products for any purpose including food, clothing, entertainment, and more. Veganism is the ethical position which rejects the use and exploitation of non-human animals. Veganism is a committed way of living which excludes the use of non-human animals for food, clothing, products, entertainment, as well as personal choices and actions. It is the notion which challenges traditional and societal beliefs held about non-human animals in that they are individuals and not economic commodities or property. It’s recognizing…

    Christian Sanchez
    13 Aug 2014 | 7:02 am
    We live in a fast-paced, ever-growing society. We are always on the go. We want as much as possible and as quickly as possible. If you stop anyone on any given day and talk to them about animal rights, almost everyone will not want to hear it. Most people will zone you out and once in a while even become enraged by what you have to say. I have found that the typical person just does not give a damn about animal rights. At most, they will think it’s wrong if a dog or a cat are abused but that’s as far as it goes for most people. “Never, never be afraid to do what’s…

  • Polenta Pizza with Pesto, Caramelized Onions and Potatoes: Forks Over Knives Cookbook Project

    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…
  • White Bean and Tomato Salad: Forks Over Knives Cookbook Project

    Emily
    18 Mar 2015 | 7:04 pm
    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…
  • Roasted Potato Onion and Broccoli Soup Recipe

    Oven-roasting the potatoes until they are golden and the onions until they are almost caramelized really brings out the flavor and makes this soup unique. It is easy to make, flavorful, hearty, healthy, warm, and delicious. My toddlers loved this soup except they picked out the cabbage. Ingredients: 3 potatoes 1 head of broccoli 1onion 3 cans vegetable broth ½ head of cabbage Concord foods original roasted potato seasoning Directions: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Wash and dice the potatoes, dice the onion, and spread evenly on a lightly greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with…
  • The Best Way to Teach Children Patience

    Emily
    24 Feb 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…
  • Breakfast Scramble: Forks Over Knives Cookbook Project

    17 Feb 2015 | 3:39 pm
    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…

I love that you can prepare it up to 2 weeks in advance and not have to make breakfast again that week. I love that you can change the way you prepare it when you get bored, from parfaits with yogurt or ice cream. I usually eat it like a bowl of cereal with nut milk (check this out for how-to make it at home!) or take the largest granola clusters for a snack.

This creamy soup passed the taste test with flying colors, even though there isn’t an ounce of dairy in it! As we are eating this (what? me blogging from the dinner table? Never!), I ask my official recipe taste tester, “does it need bacon?” The true meat-eater test. My husband said no! Almost like it was a sin to put bacon in it. If you knew him, you would understand my confusion…no…bacon!? When we go visit his Grandma…

    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…

    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 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…

    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…
  • Cruelty-free products available in Canada. My top favourite very affordable brands!

    snowthrowerssale@gmail.com

    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…
