you could get the word 'vegan' done, with the different languages of 'vegan' making up the word in smaller text. I like that idea! Or just the letter "V," made up of 'vegan' in different languages. I agree, though, that just saying 'vegan' won't cut it in most places. Better would be the ...

Another tip that I picked up from a kettlebell DVD with a vegan instructor (Mike somebody or other). Traditional advice is to exhale on the exertion, but he does many rowing moves inhaling on the exertion. I tried it, and it seems to stabilize the shoulder girdle because the chest is easier to hold ...

DW - Does green tea have caffeine? Is that the way it functions to burn fat... as a stimulant? Green tea has a lot less caffeine than coffee, and less than black tea, but more than white tea. You can, however, get de-caff green tea (which I would count as a water substitute, just as I would any unc...

Looks a little too low-calorie. If you don't eat enough calories to fuel your daily activities, it can actually have the opposite effect you want, and cause your body to hold on to whatever weight it has, because it can cause a drop in metabolism. The breakfast could be good, depending on the type o...

Can you set up some kind of "signed copy of book and a package of the new Smoothie Infusion" special price deal? For your pals. Huh? :wink:

This is great news. Still don't know if I want to buy from a company that used to be gung-ho about animal testing, and only stopped after a lot of pressure was put on them. Maybe I'll just declare a moratorium, and if they continue with their good behavior for a year, I'll buy again (though I do pre...

If the "activated" version contains glucosamine, that's probably where the shellfish ingredients come from. So it sounds like the regular version is vegan.

I order powdered açaí directly from Sambazon (www.sambazon.com) and toss some in a smoothie from time to time.

Dr. Fuhrman has formulated one called "Gentle Care," which I highly recommend. More and more nutritionally-minded doctors are recommending to not take vitamin A or isolated carotenes, and GC omits them. It's also been formulated with vegan diets in mind.

:shock: Didn't you just post a "wheat" gluten recipe? :? That doesn't mean I eat much of it now. People are at different places on their dietary journey. At one point, I did use more seitan and gluten, now I rarely do. I was just responding to someone's request for a recipe. Obviously, th...

Not really, since you have to make a broth to simmer the other recipe in anyway. And the broth ingredients don't need any measuring: pretty much just toss them in--though the onion should be chopped. No 'recipe' really needed.

It didn't taste like 'boiled flour' at all. I suppose if you just cooked it in water it would, but it absorbs the flavor from the broth and whatever else you put it in.
