  1. Problem with "Organic has no health benefits" these studies don't take into consideration about pesticides and the impact on the environment, which bugs me. I don't see why either organic or conventional produce having a micro-fraction great amount of nutritional value is important, isn't most peoples concerns to switch to organic is the pesticides? so why isn't that be taken into consideration when doing these studies.

    FSA = Anti-organic

  2. Not sure where your from notguilty but order in bulk at trueprotein.com maybe an option you might wanna check. Can save 5% using a discount code in the forums and additional 5% off when you buy 16lbs or more.

    Gemma Protein Pea Isolate non-GMO $5.09 per lb

    Rice Protein Concentrate non-GMO $5.49 per lb

     

    If custom mix ain't your thing Veganessentials.com is having a sale on Vega this week.

    Would you suggest these two for a great taste at cheap price, or the soy isolate? All are around the same price, protein content. Also, what suggested sweeteners could be needed, or is that unnecessary? I'm going to use vanilla and chocolate flavors, most likely with fruits and soy milk/water.

     

    These blends are incredibly cheap compared to factory packaged supplements, thanks for showing me.

    I take my protein powders (60%Pea/30%Rice/10%Hemp) unflavored and I don't mind the taste/texture but other people say different. Skip soy isolate, just go for the 70%Pea/30%Rice protein and choose premium flavor(search TP forums on what people say about the premium flavors).

     

    (My next order will be 70%Pea/30%Rice and I'm on the fence if I'll go unflavored again or go with a premium flavor)

  3. Beavercreek police released 19-year-old Brennan Eden of Mason from custody roughly 20 minutes before he sped down Interstate 675 on Monday morning, hit a culvert, and launched his Pontiac Firebird into the Wagner Road overpass.

     

    The force of the crash broke the car apart and ejected Eden onto the highway during the morning rush hour. He remains at Miami Valley Hospital after suffering serious injuries.

  5. Thanks for your interest in CIBA VISION products and contacting us. We are always interested in consumer questions and happy to be of assistance.

    CIBA Vision has invested a great deal of effort to eliminate animal testing during its routine product development process. Our innovative research methods involve testing our products on cells, not animals. Certain regulatory authorities still require certain animal tests as part of their product approval processes. The majority of the animal testing that CIBA Vision does is to fulfill these requirements.

  6. I've been so busy totally forgot about my contacts, two weeks left and I'll be out and picture day is beginning/middle of next month. O and the place I order from online believe is located in BC.

    I've emailed the only two company's which I don't know where they stand, here's CooperVision quick response.

     

    Thank you for your inquiry. I have emailed the U.S. and this would be the response that I have received.

     

    Contact lenses are classified as medical devices and therefore are regulated by the FDA. Current laws administered by FDA, including the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic (FD&C) Act are intended to ensure product safety and effectiveness, thereby protecting consumer health. These laws place responsibility on FDA to ensure that medical devices are safe and effective. Animal testing by manufacturers seeking to market new products is often necessary to establish product safety. Therefore when required by the FDA, CooperVision must follow these guidelines. You may wish to visit http://www.fda.gov for more information regarding FDA's position on animal testing and medical devices.

     

    Sincerely,

     

     

     

    Coopervision Canada Corp.

    Guess I'm not surprised but glad I got response.

     

     

    I guess Lasik's always a vegan option.
    True but present $$$ an issue but in the future it's definitely something I may consider.
  7. I cook a lot. I usually make things with more than 5 ingredients though.

    Same here.... thou last night I did make some vegan homemade quinoa pasta, can't believe how easy/fast it is to make. (Still gonna tweak it) Prep time was under 15 mins if you don't count drying the pasta....

     

    1 cup quinoa flour

    1 cup all purpose flour

    1 tbsp olive oil

    1/2 cup + 1 tbsp water

     

    -Put flours in food processor to mix; then add oil and water.

    -add little flour to each side of the dough and put it threw your pasta machine

    -then dry the pasta for 20-30mins

    -bring water to boil and cook pasta for a minute or so

    -top with Marcina raw pasta sauce
