Thanks for the information about almonds etc. We love almonds - eat them raw and make almond milk at home (1 cup of almonds for 3 cups of water, bit of vanilla, figs or black molasses - mmmm).
Also, hazelnut milk is to die for, never tried hemp milk, even though heard people say it is good and we stay away from soy milk since consume enough of soy products already.
thanks for sharing.
First of all, I agree with you that some PETA's tactics turn people off.
I guess, theoretically, there is nothing wrong with producing fake meat as long as nobody gets hurts. However, it just grosses me out and it is unhealthy anyway. Well, at least they try to stop mass murder of animals.
Hey, I don't really know many omnivore-type places to eat (maybe sushi bars i Little Tokyo), but have a question to you - are you worried about cross-contamination at all?
Some of my friends are not vegetarians/vegans and I still like to get together with them sometimes, so I run into the same problem.
One of my favorite dinner meals is a home made burrito.
You will need:
sweet potatoes (a couple of medium size)
soyrizo (vegan, sold in most stores)
Cook cubes of sweet potatoes in oil (I use frying pan) till half ready and add soyrizo and chopped parsley, cook till sweet potatoes are soft.
Now, get a tortilla out - fill it up with the stuffing, add some chopped avocado, sal
Thanks Mothersson, the mock turkey pie looks really good. I will try making it one day.
I also want to share some good news - Boca's original chicken patties are vegan now! They even put "vegan" on the side of the box .
To me veg-nism directly relates to spirituality. It is not a diet, it is a way of thinking, if living , and is an attempt to change this world as well. Most spiritual traditions talk about compassion and love toward ALL living beings. Ahimsa/compassion is universal.
