Re: Should veganism mean more than what you put in your mout

For me, veganism has come to mean more than what I put in my mouth. Now I consciously abstain from all animal products (though I do have some leftover wool & leather from my pre-vegan days), though in certain very limited circumstances I sometimes don't investigate every aspect of the food I eat...

Re: Im new, and i need HELP!

I agree with other posters that your tastes can change over time . . . but there are some sneaky ways to get good things like greens & veggies & fruits into your diet. Here's one of my favourite "treat" smoothies that doesn't taste at all like you're doing something good for your b...

Re: Freezing cold feet while cycling!!!

Thanks! I have another question, Timetide, for you... You cycle all year--how do you deal with snow on the ground? I worry about ending up underneath a car. There are usually only 3-5 days a year when I won't ride. (Last year the winter was so warm and there was so little snow that I didn't miss an...

Re: Freezing cold feet while cycling!!!

Yep, Dreamqueen, that was probably me at FRESH. I'm often at the Bloor/Spadina location.

I used to cycle competitively (road/TTs/crits & cyclocross) and still cycle all year round. Good luck with your feet!

Re: Freezing cold feet while cycling!!!

If you are using cycling shoes with cleats & pedals you can try cycling booties like the ones found on the bottom of this page: http://www.velotique.com/warmers.htm#Sugoi_Resistor_Waterproof_Socks. I would advise against doubling up socks particularly if your cycling shoes are already tight. Thi...

Does anybody have a good vegan wedding cake recipe (or resource)? Friends of mine are getting married in February. They are not vegan but want to have a vegan wedding cake to accommodate their vegan guests. The bride's mother will be making the cake and has a bit of experience with vegan baking (but...

Re: Which vegan athletes would you like to see on the site?

Mike Zigomanis isn't a star yet . . . but he's a vegan hockey player on the Toronto Marlies (of the American Hockey League), which is farm team of the Toronto Maple Leafs of the NHL. He was featured in an article this weekend in one of the local papers (http://www.thestar.com/living/article/1080043-...

Re: favorite airline?

I've flown the Air Canada and/or Lufthansa combination quite frequently to Germany. (They are "partnered" Star Alliance airlines.). In terms of comfort, it really depends on the specific plane you get more than the airline, at least between Air Canada and Lufthansa. Lufthansa's fleet is ge...

I'm not sure . . . a few good cookie recipes is a good thing, but a whole book of good cookie recipes just sounds dangerous! :wink:

Re: vitamin d supplementing yet?

I thought November 1st was the official day to start vitamin D supplementation in Toronto.

(Okay, I admit that's just when I started :D . . . another Toronto guy.)

Yummy cookies from Post Punk Kitchen

This is a blatant plug for vegan cookie recipes at Post Punk Kitchen (http://www.theppk.com) . . . a site I'm in no way affiliated with, by the way . . . I've been vegan for just over a year and a half and was vegetarian for about 20 years before that. As a vegetarian, I used to do a lot of baking, ...

first local organically grown honeydew melons of the season!

I found the first local organic honeydew melons at the market today on the way home from the gym! I also discovered my favorite hot weather green smoothie . . . spinach, cucumber, pear and lemon with lots of ice. And Friday is my "treat" day, when I pick up the best cookies in the world fr...
