I love it! He writes with a mix of research statistics, interviews and personal experiences. He even has a few people guest write their opinions. What I like about it is that it’s well rounded and he makes sure each side gets to air their case, but also keeps fact and opinion clearly divided. It’s a great source on the entire history of eating animals, too. It’s fascinating for herbivores and omnivores alike.
Quinoa by itself is going to have a very nutty flavor since it’s technically a seed, but will be very fluffy in texture. Like other grains, it takes well to almost any sauce or any spices that you add to it.
My favorite recipes are anything with quinoa and avocado. But this is one of my favorite pastas I’ve ever made: http://maddegoesvegan.tumblr.com/post/11252503213/vegan-mac-cheeze-not-really-but-its-creamy
I get my recipes from a mix of places. My favorite cookbook author is Lindsay Nixon, who writes all of The Happy Herbivore books. Check her out. Other than that, I look up random recipes on tumblr and online all the time. I usually just change them up to accomodate whatever food I have on hand. But I do make up a lot of recipes on my own, just by throwing leftovers into something.
One of my friends who’s in high school told me our regular super market started selling it, so I wouldn’t write that off. I got mine at Costco, if your parents ever shop at places like that. If anything else, you can always order off Amazon. I have a 4lb bag of Earthly Harvest (1st search result on amazon) and it’s lasted me a year. Hope this helps!
Ever wonder what the numbers on that sticker on your apple mean? Turn out it’s not just a barcode…
Stickers with 4 digits beginning with “3″ or “4″: produce is conventionally grown. This means that this produce was sprayed with weed killers and chemical pesticides.
Stickers with 5 digits beginning with “8″: produce was genetically engineered, genes were manipulated to produce a larger, brighter colored and more weather resistant food. This produce may have been chemically treated.
Stickers that have 5 digits beginning with “9″: produce was grown organic. This produce was not treated with any chemicals.
Just saw someone post this article (http://www.rodale.com/gross-food) and with a headline like this of course I had to read it. It makes a great reminder that it’s not only important to look at food labels for their caloric breakdown, but look at the INGREDIENTS too. We all know processed food with weird chemical names are bad for us, but this article really lays out why.
