I've loved baking since I was young and over the years I have written tons of journals of cupcake and pastry recipes. I went vegan about two years ago and have since been working on re-making all of my recipes vegan. I recently created a blog to capture all of my recipes and was looking for a group of like minded people to share them with.
I would truly appreciate any comments or feedback. Thanks so much.
I wanted to share my recipe for what I call a Taco Salad. Its cheap and easy to make and I really like it. I recommend it to everybody
Mix 1 & 1/2 cup rice cooked with 1 cup cooked black beans
add two table spoons of chunky salsa
generously coat in chili powder (about 1 table spoon).
Stir, heat, and eat.
Its deceptively simple, but marvelously delicious. I can (and do) eat it almost every day.
If you feel like putting a little more effort in, try this:
Take same quantity of rice and beans as before
Saute 1/2 cup salsa with olives, onions, and fine cut diced tomatoes (or whatever sounds tasty really)
Add 1/4 hass avocado uncooked
Mix and eat.
Its pretty good in a tortilla also.
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO KNOW? HOW TO....
Hi fellows, I´m about to interview 2 nutrition experts and I´m grouping the most asked questions and issues of vegans, athletes and vegan athletes.
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW?
How to fix that so commom issue....
Being very clear, I´m going to interview:
Nancy Clark (internationally known sports nutritionist and best-selling author trusted by many top athletes)
Astrid Pfeiffer (vegan and ayurvedica expert, wrote a vegan recipes book and this was said to be the second best book of the world in 2012 - Gourmand World Cookbooks Awards)
So, tell me...what would you like me to ask these TOP experts?
Hope to hear from you soon

It is well known that anaerobic bacteria exists in the human digestive tract just as they exist in the baboon digestive tract. Vegans not taking supplements, who were part of an experiment, had no deficiency of vitamin B12. If it was not in their food as some scientists claim, then it had to be formed by the host's microbial flora. "The highest levels of vitamin B12 were produced by the anaerobic isolates, in particular by Cl perfringens and some of the anaerobic Gram negative rods.
Is a shame, though, it doesn't give any reference about these experiments.

What I like about holistic management is the removal of disconnect between the kill of an animal and the meat in the supermarket.
You're correct however I wasn't judging him solely on his very thin frame. He is alive at his age and by the way he speaks, with conscience and maturity. Its very unlikely he eats animal products if any at all and my vegan radar went off. ;)
I'm not disagreeing with the importance of eating a diet with a variety of nutrients, but the discussion reminded me of Michael Pollan's article on the rise of "nutritionism"-- just thought I'd share for anyone who hasn't read it :)
I really really love the lemon yogurts, I haven't had lemon flavour ones since before I went vegan so a long time ago!!
Smoked cheese!? I hope they get that in my local tesco, I love anything smoked. I always buy the soya mild cheese, I use it for cooking (pasta bake, macaroni ect) My omni boyfriend really likes it too, he steals it from the kitchen when I'm cooking :umm_ani:
I tried the spring onion and black pepper spread the other week, I didn't think it tasted of all that much. I much prefer the garlic & herb one.
Obviously I didn't mentioned my opinions, just referred facts, stated by researchers. I don't think that our ancestors ate carpaccio, nor that worms in the fruit have anything in common with chicken, nor that without tools we were able to eat chicken... Your arguments are little too confused to be analitically considered. Any speculation is possible, but facts are the above mentioned. We might discuss about the fact that fire was used 400.000 or 500.000 years ago, not say that it is impossible to state anything about that, over 50.000 years ago. About bitter fruits in the past: this isn't correct (once again)... Moreover: we eat orange, that's bitter, and so on.... so what's the point? Our ancestors didn't eat bitter fruit (that, anyway, weren't bitter)? Once again, I've studied for years this argument, reading many books: facts and logics speak loud and clear. Except that you can show me how to eat a chicken, just using your hands and your teeth, I can't share your considerations. Just let me argue that the chicken comes from India (not Africa, where our ancestors evolved) and it was domesticated about 5.000 years ago ;-)
