Have you ever had #avocado#pesto pasta? Such a perfect meal as we start to ease into #fall. 🍁 This one was made and photo’d by @rainbowplantlife and totally has me drooling all over my phone! 🙌💕 - Michelle 👩🏼🌾
From birth, our minds are conditioned to think a certain way, act a certain way, be a certain way.
We are told by the media, food companies and pharmaceutical companies that certain behaviour and dietary, lifestyle choices are ok.
But do they tell us about the process? Or do they mask it with photos of happy animals in fields of green?
Do they tell us of all the antibiotics used in the food made for human consumption because the conditions are so poor? Disease is so rife.
Do they show us imagery of a slaughterhouse when they advertise the newest adverts at Christmas for the turkey that’ll be the centre piece of the meal?
Do they show the pigs being gassed by co2 for bacon? Do they show the 1000’s of baby male chicks being ground as they are incapable of laying eggs?
No. Open your eyes. Please look after the Earth and our fellow Earthlings.

🇬🇧 cambridge best bits and vegan recommendations in the highlights now! 🚣♀️
The first course was an 🍆 agrodolce then we went onto this⬆️ "beef" 🙅🏼♀️🐄 carpaccio with horseradish cream🤤, fried capers, figs, #vegan Parmesan🧀➕ rocket all to eat with the @marysgonecrackers GF crackers! Any guesses 🤔 as to what the beef is...
If it was dogs or cats being slaughtered then everyone would be on our sides. But society is so indoctrinated to believe some animals are food while others are pets that vegans are seeing as the weird ones. @veganforlifenz
When you realize that you should have stopped eating animals a long time ago. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s never too late... until it is.

🤤🤤 Vegan Garlic Bread Grilled Cheese Sandwiches from @mymeatlessmeals 🥪
(Serves 2-4 sandwiches)
• 4 tbs vegan butter (room temperature and soft)
• 1 tbs garlic, grated or minced
• 2 tbs nutritional yeast
• 1 tsp olive oil
• 1 tbs flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
• bread slices of your choice
1. Mix together vegan butter, olive oil, nutritional yeast, garlic, and parsley.
2. Make your vegan cheese(recipe below) or use any kind of vegan cheese you prefer.
3. Thinly spread the garlic butter mixture on one side of a slice of bread, make sure it’s evenly distributed. Don’t put too much, you don’t want it to be greasy.
4. In a hot pan, fry or “grill” the bread with the buttered side down. Reduce the heat to medium low.
5. Quickly add vegan cheese on top before placing another slice of bread and spread the butter mixture on top. Make sure the bottom is nicely seared before flipping it over.
6. Continue to cook until golden brown and fragrant.
7. Try not to burn your grilled cheese.
8. Serve hot but be careful not to burn your tongue.
9. Indulge. 🧀
• 1/2 cup raw cashew, soaked
• 1 cup plant milk
• 1 tsp miso paste
• 1 tsp Himalayan salt
• 1/8 tsp garlic powder
• 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
• 3 tbs tapioca starch
1. Blend all ingredients together for a few minutes.
2. In a nonstick pan, simmer the mixture on low heat while stirring vigorously for about 10-15 minutes.
3. Once the mixture turns into a dough-like paste and begins to pull away from the pan, turn off the heat. Cheese is done.
EATING THE RAINBOW:
why it's important to eat colorful foods
red: lycopene, a cartinoid, is a powerful antioxidant and has been associated with reduced cancer risk (especially prostate cancer)
yellow/orange: beta-cryptoxanthin, beta-carotene, and alpha-carotene (all antioxidants) are converted into vitamin a in the body, a nutrient integral in vision and immune function, as well as skin and bone health.
blue/purple: anthocyanin, prevent blood clots and thus help to ward off heart disease.
green: lutein, protects the lutein receptors in the macula of the eye and protects against age-related macular degeneration.
dark green: isothiocyanates, which induce enzymes in the liver to assist the body in removing toxins. also vitamin k (preventing calcium from depositing in arteries), folic acid (helping produce and maintain new cells), and potassium (reducing blood pressure, preventing stroke, and producing atp).
Iron is a double-edged sword ⚔️ If we don’t absorb enough we risk anemia but if we absorb too much we may be increasing our risk of colorectal cancer, heart disease, infection, neurodegenerative disorders and inflammatory conditions. Other conditions that have been associated with high iron intake include Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, arthritis, and diabetes.
Because the human body has no mechanism to rid itself of excess iron. We evolved to tightly regulate the absorption of iron. If our iron stores are low our intestines boost the absorption of iron, and if our iron stores are high our intestines block the absorption of iron to maintain us in that sweet spot.
But this only works with the iron found in plant foods ☘️ Our digestive system cannot regulate the iron in ingested blood - heme iron (found in animal products) ❌ The iron in animal foods can just zip right through our intestinal barrier even if we already have too much in our system 😱 We have no control over it. So avoid the (bad) heme iron in animal products 🍗🥓🍳❌ and stick to the (healthy) non-heme iron in plants 🥒🍋🌽💚
Only people with a confirmed diagnosis of iron-deficiency anaemia should consider supplementing their iron intake, and even then it can be risky. A recent study found that a significant increase in oxidative stress happened within the bodies of women on iron supplements, and so before going on iron supplements I would suggest talking to your physician about first trying to treat it through diet alone, by eating lots of healthy iron-rich foods, like chickpeas and pumpkin seeds and the other foods I listed here
while consuming vitamin C-rich foods at the same meal, such as citrus, tropical fruits, broccoli, bell peppers etc. which improve plant iron absorption up to 5 times!
while at the same time avoiding drinking tea and coffee with your meals, which can impair iron absorption.

Went to @thesaltycaramelkitchen with a friend yesterday for lunch and omg what a gem of a place so good. I had the chickpea curry wrap and a slice of gingerbread cake. DEVINE. I will say that whoever makes their hot sauce is just doing it right because it was delicious too. Great atmosphere. Delicious food. Now all I need to do is come in every day and wait for a vegan boyfriend to show up 😂😂😂😂😂 (kinda jk) but if you’re in Lake Country GO. #VeganEats#VeganAF#OkanaganVegan#OKVegans#BCVegans#ShuswapVegans

"What an experience this first wine visit was. A significant moment for me in shaping and solidifying my wine passion. I've always appreciated wine tremendously, however, this experience has given me a whole new understanding and respect for what goes into making this beautiful beverage" - Jesse, VWA co-founder after spending the day @condieestate
Believe it or not but these treats are all #vegan ! Trust me when I say this, they are as good as any other cheese cakes out there... to be honest they are better, the reason for that is no animals were exploited in the process of these from raw ingredients, to cake on my plate... The only animal involved was ME!! 🐷
I devoured them !! OMG so yummy!! @nudesisterskitchen was amazing, tofu scramble, best vegan burger I've had yet and beautiful girls, with beautiful smiles. 🌻😍🌼 Be kind today

Today’s lunch! 🤗🌿 Hasselback potatoes with spinach, cucumber, corn, edamame beans and a garlic dressing. I baked the potatoes at 225 celcius degrees for 40 minutes. Had s little bit of oil a d bread crumbs on top (but that’s totalt optional). The dressing is made out of cashewnuts, chili sauce, garlic and lemon juice. Delicious! 🌸🌿
. 🇸🇪 Hasselbackspotatis med spenat, gurka, majs, edamamebönor och vitlöksdressing. Jag bakade potatisen på 225 grader i 40 minuter. Hade lite olja och ströbröd på toppen (men det är valfritt). Dressingen är gjord av cashewnötter, chilisås, vitlök och citronsaft. Supergott! 🌿🌸🌟
