10 Homemade vegan Energy Bars for Exercise and Refueling

Refueling after a tough workout and making sure your body is amped with nutrients, carbs and protein can get expensive if you buy energy and protein bars from the grocery store. Having a bulk box of protein bars stored away so you’re always prepared is a convenient way to stay satiated while leading a busy lifestyle, but they are not necessarily conveniently priced. You save money by buying a box of 12 or 24 or more bars, but if you purchase one bar on it’s own, you may be paying up to two dollars just for one bar. While you’re at it, there’s a chance you might be getting some fillers and add – ins with the store-bought varieties. For cheaper, healthier bars, make one of these homemade energy bars.

Edible protein per unit area of land – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Soybeans produce at least two times as much usable protein per acre than any other major vegetable or grain crop, except for hemp which can produce up to 293 lbs of usable protein per acre 33 g/m². They produce 5 to 10 times more protein per acre than land set aside for grazing animals to make milk, and up to 15 times more protein per acre than land set aside for meat production.[1]

How to Juice | MUNCHIES

How to Juice | MUNCHIES.

Everybody wants to juice, so we enlisted the help of legendary Cro-Mags frontman John Joseph to show us how to make a proper juice and smoothie. We were expecting a nice rundown with maybe a funny story or two thrown in. What we got was perhaps the most in-your-face talk about the benefits of consuming fruits and vegetables ever given. Want to know how to regain energy after a night of busting nuts? WATCH THIS! Plus, both of his books—Meat is For Pussies and his autobiography The Evolution of a Cro-Magnon—are extremely inspirational and informative.

Lastly, we would like to combine to of John’s best quotes “Meat is for pussies, and diets are for jerk-offs”.

Chipotle’s First-Ever New Menu Item, The Vegan Tofu Burrito, Goes National | Fast Company | Business + Innovation

YEH – win for Vegan fast food!

Chipotle's First-Ever New Menu Item, The Vegan Tofu Burrito, Goes National | Fast Company | Business + Innovation

Chipotle does not often update its limited, but classic, menu. In fact, despite minor tweaks like adding brown rice and burrito bowls, in its 20-year history, the Mexican fast-food chain has never added an entirely new item. But today, after a year-long testing period in select locations, Chipotle is officially adding Sofritas–the official name for the shredded organic tofu braised with roasted poblanos, chipotle chiles, and spices–to its nationwide menu. So how did the humble bean curd win its slot on the Chipotle menu board?

A young woman was restrained, force-fed and injected with cosmetics in a high street shop window as part of a hard-hitting protest against animal testing.

Jacqueline Traide was tortured in front of hundreds of horrified shoppers in a bid to raise awareness and end the practise.

The 24-year-old endured 10 hours of experiments, which included having her hair shaved and irritants squirted in her eyes, as part of a worldwide campaign by Lush Cosmetics and The Humane Society.

Reported Strange Noises were Mother Cows Crying for their Calves | Compassion Over Killing

Last week, the Newbury, Massachusetts police station received several calls from residents complaining of strange sounds coming from nearby farm. Upon investigating, the police found the source of the noise: female dairy cows who were bellowing and crying after having been separated from their calves at Sunshine Dairy Farm.

According to the Newburyport News, the police received so many calls from concerned citizens, the sheriff issued a statement addressing the issue: “We’ve been informed that the cows are not in distress and that the noises are a normal part of farming practices.”

Ingredients

1/2 cup raisins (I used golden)
1/2 cup whole prunes
1/2 cup halved dates
1/2 cup sliced dried apricots
1/2 cup halved dried figs
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup dry roasted almonds (you can just used blanched if you prefer)
Water, to cover

To Make
1. Place all the dried fruit and the nuts in a bowl.
2. Cover with about 6 cups water, the fruit should be covered by at least 2 inches.
3. Leave in the fridge over night to soak. Check to make sure that there is enough water – if the fruit has absorbed all of the water then you’ll need to add more. There should be plenty of syrupy juice left in the bowl after the fruit have absorbed as much as they can.
4. Eat! We just ate it as it is, but you could also serve over ice cream or with yoghourt. (VEGAN PLEASE)

Tofu-free Vegan Pumpkin Pie – VeggieBoards Community

Recipe: Organic Vegan Pumpkin Pie (tofu-free)

Suitable for: Vegans and everyone else

Serves: Makes 2 regular sized pumpkin pies or 4 mini pies.

NOTE: This recipe makes enough pumpkin filling for 2 regular (8-9 inch) pies, BUT they will be thin – as in you’ll have less than an inch of filling, but being as this is a rich tasting filling I like that. If you want thicker pies, make a double batch of the filling.

I don’t really love pumpkin pie made with tofu, so this year I set out to make a pie that was tofu free. This pie is very creamy, tastes awesome and will please all pie lovers.
