Re: Soy free protein powders

My protein Picks: Nutiva Hemp 15g : I love the taste, nutty and hempy . Tastes like a real food, not a supplement. Much better tasting than other brands of hemp so if you were turned off by a different brand, try Nutiva. Hemp is supposed to be 80% bio available, but only 55% optimal in Lysine, and l...

Re: Found VBBF 7 years ago, coming up on 7 years Vegan

Was it anything in particular that made you 'relapse'? ie. any words of wisdom? Yeah there were 3 or 4 times in the past 7 years where things got so chaotic/stressful/depressing (job, a relationship, financial issues, etc) that my diet and animal rights were no longer a big concern, but those were ...

Re: Helped convert a forum member to vegetarianism

Hearing a farm sanctuary presentation about the horrors of even the dairy and egg industry, and then finding this board, did it for me. The meet your meat vid was pretty convincing as well, I think it has stuff in there about eggs and dairy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32IDVdgmzKA Pictures can be...

Montrail has great sneakers/running shoes, all Vegan. I like the masochist trail running with or without outdry (gore-tex-like water protection).

Re: Vegan Dress Shoes

The brown are ok, I'd still like something nicer though but that could be a start. Unfortunately I cannot find my size (12, or 11 since I've read they run large) :/ They look better in person than in the images. It is a well made shoe, best faux suede I have seen. As for fit, they are European Shoe...

Re: spices and seasonings for Vegan Food

I consider these staples: Seasoned salt, garlic powder, onion powder, turmeric, chili powder, paprika, curry powder, cinnamon, nutritional yeast, berbere, black pepper, sea salt And recently I've been putting gochujang in everything. Not low-cal like the powdered spices, but a little goes a long wa...

Re: New Yorkers Coupon to Vegan Restaurant

I want to check out the one in Williamsburg, it's on my to do list.

My fave NYC Vegan restaurants so far are Cafe Blossom and Sacred Chow

Both are stellar, awesome eating experiences, and focused on real food as opposed to meat analogues.

Article on Poultry Factory Farming in Wired Magazine

I always take note when a worldwide type publication touches on Factory Farming or Veganism: http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2012/02/pastured-poultry/ Personally of course I'd rather everyone be Vegan, but I am also in the meantime for harm reduction, and if articles on the merits of pastured-live...

I bought the Novacas Dennis in Brown Suede from Moo Shoes a couple months ago: http://i76.photobucket.com/albums/j6/joelbct/Other/Novacas-Dennis-Brown-1.jpg I love them because they can be worn with jeans or dress pants.. They also make a black (non-suede) version. They are handmade in Portugal. I b...

spices and seasonings for Vegan Food

One of the best things for me about becoming Vegan was that I started experimenting with all sorts of spices and ethnic foods I would not have explored otherwise- asian, mexican, indian, etc. I eat organic brown rice every day, with black beans, lentils, vegetables, etc (i love carbs, with no apolog...

Re: Most influential Books you've read

I like all three of those names. All three are heroes to me in their own ways. Harris is probably my favorite but I don't like is weak argument for not being vegan (in his fairly recent Ask Sam Harris Anything #1 video). I don't like Dawkins' argument either, seen in the video interview with Peter ...
