vegan pigs in a blanket and encouragement

Hi!

What is your favorite non vegan food? Is it holding you back from going vegan? Maybe this vegan.com quote will help…

Vegan.com

If you could be totally vegan except for that one thing, then totally be vegan except for that one thing!

So many of us are all or nothing – can’t go all in then why go in at all?

Maybe that quote will help the next time you think you can’t possibly go vegan πŸ™‚

My sister loves hot dogs. I wonder if she would go vegan if she could eat hot dogs? Not sure but in honor of the thought I made vegan pigs in a blanket πŸ˜‰ I used Yves The Good Dog.

They were really good. For some reason the biscuit part didn’t cook all the way through. I flipped them over and cooked four more minutes. That is why you see the golden brown part on top, too.

chicken-free chicken curried papaya salad and cowspiracy

Do you want to be a true environmentalist?

Go vegan πŸ™‚

Cowspiracy is a must see for everyone. It is interesting, sad, educational and at times, funny. Β I am not a “conspiracy theory” person but this documentary makes you think πŸ˜‰

OK dinner talk.

Chicken Curried Salad.

Delicious! I was so happy with my dinner tonight πŸ™‚

I used Vegenaise instead of mayo and Beyond Meat Chicken-Free Strips (the 12oz pack). Β Oh and I didn’t use any parsley…but other than that it was exactly the same πŸ˜‰

Hope the rest of your week is AMAZING!

fishless fish tacos

Hi.

Is it OK to crave fish tacos? Yes.

“Fishless Fish Tacos”: flour tortillas, coleslaw with tahini dressing and fishless filets.

I never ate meat or fish because I was so happy to be eating animals. I just liked the flavor and texture! With so many products out there you can have almost anything you crave πŸ™‚

Notes: for the coleslaw I used green and purple cabbage with tahini dressing, for the tortillas I used vegetable oil instead of shortening.

Talk to you later.

banana bread

Vegan Banana Bread.

What kind of banana bread do you like? Dense? Caky? This recipe is on the dense side. Really good. Delicious actually. No need to give the “it is vegan” disclaimer πŸ™‚

Vegan versions are not always healthier.

Vegan versions are always cruelty-free.

Sometimes you need to splurge. Have some sugar.

That is it for tonight. I am saving my rambling thoughts for later this week. You know after I watch Cowspiracy πŸ™‚

seitan is what’s for dinner

Hey.

Having a great week? I hope so!

Love more. Help the homeless. Advocate for animals. Care more. Do more. These things just rumble around in my head all day every day. Rumbling comfortably. Not wanting to leave.

Trying to change that πŸ™‚

There is a song calledΒ I refuse that challenges me…here is a sample of the lyrics:

I refuse|to make one more excuse|cause I don’t wanna live like I don’t care|I don’t wanna say another empty prayer|Oh I refuse|to sit around and wait for someone else|to do what God has|called me to do myself|oh I could choose|not to move|but I refuse

Feel like changing the world? I do.

But until then…tonight’s dinner was fried curry seitan with onions and quinoa. Tasty πŸ™‚
