Vegan FAQ. What does the word ‘vegan’ really mean?

Vegan FAQ

In recent years, the word ‘vegan’ has come a long way from the relative obscurity in which it once dwelled. As a concept now associated with people as well known as Oprah, Bill Clinton and James Cameron, the word itself has become fairly widely known. But is it really understood? Contrary to popular belief, vegans do not just subscribe to a plant-based diet or abstain from animal products as a reaction to the treatment of animals in large-scale, industrialized conditions.

Vegans object to our use of animals as “resources” in and of itself, whether the individuals in question are being housed in factories, or in small, backyard, family-farm situations. This includes (but is not limited to) the use of animals for food, clothing, cosmetics, experimentation and entertainment. Vegans do not use or wear leather, wool, silk, down, fur, or any other fabric that come from animals. Read more: What’s in a WordVeganism DefinedThe Importance of Being Vegan. - StumbleUpon.

Vegan Heavy Cream (Makes 2.5 cups) 2 cups raw (whole) cashews 1 cup almond milk 1/4 cup water Place your cashews in a bowl and completely cover them with cold water. Drain water from cashews and transfer to a food processor with the liquid ingredients (you might want to only start out with half the liquid and you can add more based upon how thick or creamy you want it). NOTE: The second time I made this,I used a magic bullet instead of a food processor and the resulting heavy cream was much more smooth. Vegies and Salad. - VEBU Aktionen und Petitionen.
