How to Stock a Vegan Pantry [Illustration: Robyn Lee] It's day five of this year's vegan experience (in accordance with Jewish customs, this year's Experience began at sundown on Friday evening, February 1st), and already things are going far more smoothly than last year. The biggest hurdle I faced back then was opening my refrigerator and realizing that there was almost nothing I could eat. Animal-based products are so pervasive—sometimes even hiding in plain sight in products where you least expect to find them—that my refrigerator needed a near-complete overhaul. But that was then and this is now. Upon completing my month of veganism last year, I mentioned that there were a few permanent changes in my diet that it would effect, even when I switched back to basic omnivorism.

Vegan Junk Food VEGAN OK JUNK FOOD PETA (people for the ethical treatment of animals) has posted a list of Junk Foods, and standard every day items found in most grocery stores, which are VEGAN OK (not made from any animal products nor animal byproducts). I went out and got some Lays "Country Flavor" BarBQ Chips (not the Lays KC Masterpiece), and some Chocolate Oreos, and some Thomas' NY Style Bagles (Everything), some Ragu Pizza Sauce, and some Kraft Catalina Salad Dressing (actually quite good, and cheap). I already knew that Cracker Jack, Mambas, Dots, Hot Tamales, and Regular Fritoes were all VEGAN OK. But after the shopping spree and binge, I now deeeply regret, that I did not get any Ritz Crackers. For all the list's I have copied over just the SNACKS list, below (but do check with the link above for Updates). Lists of animal free Alcohol for vegetarians, vegans, and anyone who wants it

CMU professor gives his last lesson on life Randy Pausch set the tone early on yesterday at his farewell lecture at Carnegie Mellon University. "If I don't seem as depressed or morose as I should be, sorry to disappoint you," said Dr. Pausch, a 46-year-old computer science professor who has incurable pancreatic cancer. It's not that he's in denial about the fact that he only has months to live, he told the 400 listeners packed into McConomy Auditorium on the campus, and the hundreds more listening to a live Web cast. My Top 25 Vegan Kitchen Staples Awhile back, Alicia Silverstone did a post about her top 20 ingredients she couldn’t live without. Soon after, Cadry shared her list and Bobbie shared hers. Because list-making is one of my most favorite things in the world, I couldn’t pass this opportunity up to make a list of things my vegan kitchen is never without. Legumes– Whether they are canned, dry, or cooked and stored in the fridge/freezer, I am never without my beans. Occasionally I’ll get some more exotic varieties of beans, but I always have chickpeas, black beans, great northern white beans, pinto beans, black-eyed peas, lentils, and green peas in my kitchen. They are probably my most favorite source of protein and are great for making dips, stews, sloppy-joes, desserts, my favorite quick-fix dinner, and so much more.

Organic Farming Is a Load of A superb article in the Australian popular science magazine Cosmos debunks the organic food and farming craze. On claims that organic is more nutritious, the article notes: A comprehensive review of some 400 scientific papers on the health impacts of organic foods, published by Faidon Magkos and colleagues in 2006 in the journal Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition, concluded there was no evidence that eating organic food was healthier.Even if it can't be proved that eating organic is healthier, advocates claim it is nutritionally superior.

Ordinary Vegan Shopping List Hi Katherine and welcome to the Ordinary Vegan community. I am excited that you are considering a plant-based diet. The most important advice I would have for you is to keep it simple. Stay away from a lot of processed foods like vegan cheese and oreos. If you need a little of that stuff to transition, thats ok but don’t overdo it. Frank Miller movie 300 actor training Not your average workout: Tire flipping, jumping, sprints with a jumpstretch band, runs with kettlebells, turkish get ups with kettlebells, medicine ball throwing, kipping pullups, bear crawls, tuck sits on gymnastics rings, barbell thrusters. Real, oldschool, brutal - full body movements. You'll notice they aren't doing any curls or tricep extensions, no machines, no pussy bodybuilding "watch yourself in the mirror exercises" crap.

Herb cashew cream cheese Cashews are like the best thing in the world, no really! They’re not something I often buy as they cost a pretty penny (or maybe I am just stingey?) but when ever they are on offer I snaffle up a couple of packs and use them for everything. They make the creamiest vegan milks, and if your’ve never had a cashew based vegan cheese cake, I’m sorry to say I feel a little bit bad for you….This recipe here is not only tasty, but it makes a pretty little dome, perfect for the centre of a vegan cheese board don’tcha think? I am going to be making this to go with the obligatory Christmas cracker selection we get every year, I might even go crazy and make a whole range of vegan cheeses, who knows.

30 Foods You Probably Didn't Know Were Vegan Being vegan is easier than ever. The amount of trendy restaurants, food blogs, and vegan-friendly products has exploded in recent years, making those who are meat, dairy, and egg free smile from ear to ear. But it turns out a lot of things are coincidentally vegan that may shock you. If you think vegans only eat kale, brown rice, and vegetables in pretty bowls that look oh-so-pretty in Instagram pictures, you’ve got another thing coming. For example: did you know Baco-Bits and Oreos are vegan? Learning From Losers When it comes to dieting, everyone wants to be a loser. But only 10 percent of people who manage to drop pounds also manage never to see them again. The good news is that as a runner, you already have a head start in joining this enviable club. For the past dozen years, researchers Rena Wing, Ph.D., and James Hill, Ph.D., have meticulously tracked about 6,000 people who have met the minimum requirements to participate in their National Weight Control Registry: They must have lost at least 30 pounds and maintained that for at least a year. (The average is 70 pounds off and for six years.)
