Breakfast is four Gala apples, peeled, sliced, and baked for an hour with walnuts, oats, cinnamon, allspice, lemon juice, and brown sugar.
Hi! I’m so glad that you found it useful. Every so often I think, wtf am I even doing but if it helps at least one person, even just a little bit, then that’s awesome. Congrats on eating vegan, I’m excited for you :D And thanks so much for the kind words. x
According to a new Harris Interactive study commissioned by the Vegetarian Resource Group, the number of vegans in the United States has doubled since 2009 to 2.5% of the population. An amazing 7.5 million U.S. citizens now eat vegan diets that do not include any animal products – no meat, poultry, fish, dairy or eggs. Close to 16 million, or 5%, identify as vegetarian, never eating meat, poultry or fish. If this rate continues, vegans will be 10% of the U.S. population in 2015, 40% in 2019, and in 80 % in 2050!
this is amazing!
Why am I defining veganism to vegans? Because sadly, we seem to be moving further and further away from the core of it and more towards a superficial, material definition that focuses on diet, cookbooks, trendy fashion and body images. Veganism is not superficial, nor should it give a shit about the size and shape of your body.
Which brings me back to body shaming. I read many comments about how vegans need to be thin, attractive, and healthy if we really want to help animals. Huh? Vegans need to be vocal, consistent, educated on all nonhuman issues, eloquent, patient, active and willing to fight for the rights and dignity of nonhumans. Period. Attacking someone or shaming someone over the size and shape of their body doesn’t help animals.
edit: I have some things to say regarding this but I need to spend some time gathering my thoughts.
So I am currently living in Paris. I am vegan and it is super hard. I am from Chicago and there are many many restaurants and just options in general for vegans. So basically I am wondering if anyone knows any simple simple baking recipes. I have not been able to find a dairy free butter and I really don’t like using oil. I know I can bake without butter but I just have been…I guess procrastinating.
This page has some good info about being vegan in Paris and mentions the margarine BioSoft being vegan (I think I’ve also seen it under the brand “St Hubert” Bio too). It also mentions crepes that are made from just buckwheat and water - which sounds cheap and simple. Banana can be a good substitute for egg and even butter and a good base for baking (muffins, pancakes, oatmeal, bread etc), Apple sauce is a good substitute for oil. if they’re cheap enough there. Naturalia stores stock vegetarian with some vegan things. Also blogs like Chocolate Covered Katie share pretty simple, cheap vegan recipes. Hope that helps! IF anyone has any experience with grocery shopping or vegan baking in Paris, send your thoughts their way!
