ROASTED WEDGE POUTINE
4 Russet potatoes
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil (sunflower, safflower, olive, etc)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup Daiya Cheese (mozzarella or cheddar flavour)
Nancy Zylstra’s* Gravy Ingredients:
4 Tablespoons water or vegetable oil (water works really well, for a richer gravy use oil)
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 Tablespoon flour (brown rice flour which is gluten-free or spelt flour are my favourite)
2 Tablespoons Tamari
1 Tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 Tablespoons poultry seasoning (this is an innocent pre-packaged mix of sage, rosemary, thyme, marjoram etc.)
pepper to taste
Preheat over to 450 degrees
If using organic potatoes simply wash skins and pat dry the potatoes. If using non-organic peel the potatoes first. Cut potatoes into thick wedges (one potato should make 8 wedges). Place in a bowl and drizzle with oil. Add salt and stir until well coated. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes or until soft whe…
This little boy had some great wisdom when he said "People are born so they can learn how to live a good life - like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?" The six year old boy continued, "Well dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long."
Non-vegan parents - If you are not willing to show your child video footage of animals in slaughterhouses dying to provide food for their plates, then why do you argue so angrily that vegan parents force their children to live 'unnaturally' without being given a choice. Don't deceive your children, show them the TRUTH and then see what choice THEY make.
We had an incident here in Victoria last evening when a carriage horse ran and tried to get free and there was a big traffic jam. It struck me that these horses may be drugged, they look so sad when you walk past them, they look sedated.
Last month, emboldend by outlaw Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, Utah ranchers in Iron and Beaver Counties threatened to roundup wild horses on our public lands if the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) did not conduct an immediate roundup itself. The ranchers were threatening to commit a federal crime, but that did not stop the agency from again caving in to bullying tactics and demands by promising to cnoduct a massive summer roundup in the Bible Springs Complex in southwestern Utah.
This proposed roundup is so wrong on so many levels - here are just a few reasons why: AT LINK ABOVE.........TAKE ACTION!!
According to a recently released Pew Research study, the number of prime time viewers for CNN, Fox and MSNBC fell by a combined fell by11% last year. Eleven percent may not sound overwhelming, but its a great start. In 2013, over one in ten Americans have stopped watching the corporate controlled media propaganda which serves to anesthetize and lobotomize it viewers, listeners and readers from the realities of what is really taking place.There are six corporations which control 98% of the media and their media investments are taking a beating.The mainstream media (MSM) represents the controlling corporate interests in today’s media. The MSM controls an estimated 96-98% of all media outlets. So, guess what? Be on the lookout for infiltration of the same manipulators of your reality in the alternative media sites (or those telling it like it is and trying to expose truth) and social network sites, they have been there awhile already but the disinfo will ramp up to control, confuse and…
Some people argue that the lion the eagle they are predators so its nature, to eat meat, so humans are just following nature. Mass production ain't nature - its torture -Raising animals under, cramped, filthy, and deprived conditions for the sake of their eggs, milk, or bodies as meat, is a far stretch from a predator who is meant to be one, hunting for its food for the month. This attitude is called rationalization and denial..basically mental illness.Someone asked me today if Eckhart Tolle is vegan, they knew I read his books but I could not answer. When I got home I leafed through his book 'A New Earth' and found this, on page. 11;
"Another aspect of the collective dysfunction of the human mind is the unprecedented violence that humans are inflicting on other life-forms and the planet itself--the destruction of oxygen-producing forests and other plant and animal life; ill-treatment of animals in factory farms; and poisoning of rivers, oceans, and air. Driven by g…
We have been given all we need WITHOUT killing, or exploiting, or torturing, or stealing, life and quality of life from the animals we share the planet with, but this cartoon illustrates mans attitude, he seems to want more, and is wrecking ball destroying all in his selfish path. It would be different if we did not have all we need, a vast array of diverse healthy foods but we do.
Awareness is key. The lack of awareness or what we could call an elevated or more intact consciousness, a connection rather than a disconnection from life in its many created forms, is at the heart of the exploitation, suffering and abuse that is rampant on this planet. Some people refer to these states as positive energy and negative energy or duality. Positive energy is powerful and is integrative and geometrically powerful. Of late many different science experiments using water have shown this integrative geometrical state or lack thereof. In that direction negative energy is segregative from the perfection of the elevated geometric structure of an elevated full consciousness as it feels separate, feels fear, and functions as if it is truly that way, belief and perception causing much disharmony, imbalance and pain. The negative energy does not function cohesively and what you see in our world is the outward manifestation of the belief that one is separate, in competition, that res…
