Vegan recipes, lifestyle, and culture presented by the Feast food community.
If you're a new vegan or someone thinking of transitioning to one, my strategies will certainly make your life easier without spending a million dollars and constantly worrying about what to eat!
Our planet’s climate crisis is at the forefront of many people’s minds since David Attenborough’s latest documentary was released. I watched “A Life on our Planet” on Netflix a few weeks ago and it was brilliant. The realities of our planet’s degradation are bitter and terrifying, but Attenborough conveys a sense of hope and purpose; “there is a path to sustainability” he says. “We are all set to win this future.”
Six years ago I decided to try out veganism. For those that don’t know a vegan is someone who doesn’t eat meat, eggs, dairy products, and all other animal-derived ingredients. Some vegans don’t consume honey or white sugar because the process making it uses animal products. For me it was more about not eating animal ingredients, but I still consumed honey and sugar.
Before we kick this off let me be clear on a few things: 1. This is NOT vegan indoctrination propaganda 2. I am not going to shy away from reality (don’t worry - no slaughterhouse videos here)
How shall I categorize myself? Do I want to be categorized? Googling terms for the different types of vegetarian or vegan, I'm not sure there's a word for me ... okay, thank you ... that's not what I meant! But it did make me realise there is more to becoming a vegan than you might think, well, more than I'd considered anyway. This is my journey so far.
Holidays are of course looking really different this year due to COVID, which is a bummer, but I always remind myself that life is what you make of it! So, just because we can't spend the holidays with the family and friends we usually would, doesn't mean we can't enjoy ourselves a little fun from home.
Man, I practically grew up on peanut butter cookies! My mom had a recipe using just peanut butter, eggs, and sugar that she would whip up for almost every occasion. I usually crave them around the holidays, but since I'm vegan now, I had to improvise.
People who know me well have always marvelled at how I manage to do shopping and cook meals with so many allergies between us.
I think this is a perfect recipe for a cookie swap because it’s easy to make, unique, memorable, and tastes better than anything you can get from the store! Plus it’s just fun to say “Miso Almond Chocolate Chunk Cookies”!
Holiday Quarantine has definitely been hard on all of us. I never could have predicted that 2020 would start and end this way, and I'm sure that the business closures and social distancing has brought some unwelcome stress into our lives. WE NEED STRESS RELIEF AND WE NEED IT NOW!
I have toyed with veganism in the past few years but I've never seen enough evidence to show that it is any healthier or better for the environment than being a meat eater.
It is a well-known fact that the vegan diet is one that raises various opinions, many of derogatory nature, whether intended to be or not. After not having eaten meat for over 7 months now, and having decided to progressively remove it from my diet about 4 months previous to that, I have heard many, many comments about the switch to plant-based consumption. Most of which make me laugh a little. Here are the some of the responses I have received after saying "I'm a vegetarian"...
