    ^^If you have to wrap them, why not use aluminum foil. That way you can at least get some use out of the wrapping.^^

    Ethiopian Vegan Food

    Injera
    A fermented grain mixed with water and then fried similar to a pancake or crêpe. injera is the backbone of Ethiopian meals. Eaten multiple times a day and typically served family-style with large spoonfuls of savory dishes, injera is commonly made from a grain called teff and is full of nutrients such as protein, calcium, fiber, and iron. Teff is naturally gluten-free. Food platters are served with additional pieces of injera to scoop up delectable dishes such as simmered greens, spicy lentils, or stewed chickpeas. The best part? Injera is always vegan.

    Berbere
    Berbere is a staple seasoning blend of hot red peppers and spices such as garlic, cardamom, cinnamon, and paprika. Most often added to spicy red sauces and stews, berbere can also be used in dressings or as a tableside condiment. Purchase the flavorful accompaniment as a dried spice mix in Ethiopian grocery stores, specialty markets, or online, or make the paste at home. Berbere can also pack some heat, so proceed with caution.

    Wat
    A term generally describing Ethiopian main dishes, wats can vary from a thin curry to a thick stew. Eaten with injera and served in an assortment of spice-levels, wat can typically be divided into two main types. Kay, characterized by its red color and use of berbere, begins with red onions or shallots. Then, broth is added along with the main ingredient (typically a type of legume) and thickened. Often abbreviated as just “wat,” some of the most popular are shiro, made with chickpeas, and misir, made with lentils. Alicha, which tends to be thick like a stew and doesn’t contain berbere (but can sometimes be spicy due to added hot green chiles), begins with yellow onions. Broth and the main ingredients are then added (vegetables and sometimes legumes) and left to thicken to a stew-like texture. Remember to specify your veganism when ordering these dishes because some might be prepared with ghee.

    Salad
    Salad is an unexpected yet refreshing feature of Ethiopian cuisine. Although the dish appears as a standard arrangement of lettuce, the Ethiopian version acts as a cold, light complement to thick, spicy wats. Dressings aren’t typically dense, and Ethiopian chefs opt for Italian or citrus-filled varieties. If you’re lucky, yours might even contain a kick of berbere!

    Authentic Japanese streetfood. I tried the vegan option. My meal was 2 Croquettes, purple rice, fresh ginger. The purple rice is a blend of white and black rice. This blend creates a tasty, healthy, rice with a nutty flavour. Black rice is high in iron, antioxidants, and fibre. After cooking, black rice turns into a deep purple colour.

    It was an amazing concept. Dozens of shipping containers were used and converted into kitchens. Each kitchen has it's own ethic menu. ie (West Indian: roti's; Philippino; Japanese: gushi; Columbian; Afghan; Thai; Korean; Chinese; southern grill etc) While all the kitchens prepared meat dishes. they all had vegetarian and vegan variations for every ethnic menu.

    Eating Fruit and Vegetables Increases Happiness

    Vegetarian and Vegan Passion-vegnews.fruit.jpg

    Longitudinal research project finds positive link between healthy eating and psychological well-being.

    A new study by the University of Warwick and the University of Queensland found that people who ate more fruit and vegetables experienced substantial increases in happiness over a two-year period, even when other factors were accounted for. Researchers examined the food diaries of 12,385 randomly sampled Australian adults during the years 2007, 2009, and 2013 to measure their happiness level and concluded that people who transitioned from eating few fruit and vegetables to eight servings per day felt increases in life satisfaction comparable to getting a job after being unemployed. The research team suggests that their findings could potentially support other scientific studies linking optimism with carotenoid in the blood.



    Fruit and veg give you the feel-good factor

    I went back to the street kitchens and tried another the Afghan dish called Laban (beans and salad on rice... all-vegan) The spices were amazing. Later we walked through chinatown and I found a hat I couldn't resist

    Building muscle on a Vegan diet

    Vegetarian and Vegan Passion-cmbxdptwaaacite.jpg


    Is it really possible to build mass, increase strength, and optimize your athletic performance without eating any animal products?

    Bodybuilding and strength sports have traditionally been built on a hearty diet of animal protein. Even the general public automatically associate gym-goers with eggs, chicken breast, steak, and whey protein shakes.

    So if the Western world thinks protein=animal products, can a healthy, muscular and strong body really be fueled by a diet which contains no animal protein at all?

    Yes. Vegan athletes can be found at elite level in bodybuilding, strongman, powerlifting and CrossFit. And veganism in strength sports is getting more popular, as greater numbers of people discover the benefits of a vegan diet.

    What Do Our Diets Actually Need?

    To understand how a vegan diet could work for you, put tradition aside and think about what a diet needs to contain:

    – sufficient protein, including a range of amino acids

    – carbohydrate

    – healthy and essential fats

    – fiber

    All of those things can be found in a vegan diet.

    Most of us eat plenty of foods that are vegan. Oatmeal, sweet potatoes, rice cakes, nut butters, fruit and berries, avocado, vegetables, rice, pulses, beans, nuts and seeds are all strength-sport favorites that tick the vegan box.

    How To Design A Vegan Diet

    Like any change to your diet, the decision to become vegan will need a bit of thought and planning. This is particularly true if you’re travelling for work, or for competing. But we’re strength athletes. We’re already used to planning our meals, prepping our foods, reading food labels, and thinking about macros. In that sense, we’re one step ahead of the rest of the population.

    Use a wide range of grains, legumes, pulses, plenty of vegetables and root vegetables, a variety of fruits and berries. You could add in a vegan protein powder (hemp, brown rice, pea protein – or a blend). Vegan protein bars are widely available. And vegan favorites like tofu and seitan steak (which has a fantastic leucine profile – second only to whey) are a useful addition.

    A vegan diet does not need to be boring! How about a vegan curry made with lentils or chickpeas and cauliflower, served with your favorite type of rice? Or oatmeal plus hemp seeds, non-dairy milk, berries, and a scoop of nutty-tasting vegan protein powder?

    Vegan meals lend themselves really well to batch cooking in a crock pot or slow cooker, and can be served up with rice, potato, or in a wrap for round #2!

    You’ll probably already have a good idea of your macros. As a guide, make sure you are getting 0.7g-1.0g protein per pound of lean mass. 20-30% of your calories from healthy fats. Vegan diets tend to naturally from saturated fats. We do need some saturated fat in our diet, so get yours from coconut products including coconut oil, coconut milk, or coconut meat. Good vegan fat sources include flaxseed, coconut oil, olive oil, almonds and other nuts, nut and seed butters, avocados.

    The Surprising Benefits of A Vegan Diet

    Vegan athletes report staying leaner in their off-seasons than before they turned vegan, partly because their choice of junk food is limited, and partly because their vegan diet contains more volume of whole foods. Many vegans say that they have fewer digestive issues from vegan protein powders, avoiding the bloating some experience from whey.

    These days, there is a vegan substitute for almost every food you could think of. Veganism isn’t boring, repetitive, or restrictive. Your only limit is your imagination!

    30-year study found that a diet rich in fruit, vegetables, and nuts helps slow the aging process.


    The Journal of Nutrition recently published a Harvard Medical School study showing that women who eat a plant-based diet are physically healthier than their meat-eating counterparts as they age. Based on survey data from more than 54,000 women who were tracked over the course of three decades, researchers found that a diet rich in fruit, leafy greens, and nuts correlated with higher levels of physical functioning. Meanwhile, high consumption of sugar, alcohol, salt, and trans-fats more often resulted in health problems. While researchers found some foods to have especially health-promoting properties (such as oranges, apples, pears, romaine lettuce, and walnuts), researchers emphasized that it was the overall quality of the subjects’ diet that kept them healthier.

    Diet rich in fruit, veg can help older women stay active

    Japanese curry with sweet potatoes and purple rice (it's sweeter than Indian style curry)

    Animal-free meat - around the corner. Vegan Carnivores could exist!

    Meet the guy who envisions a ‘meat brewery’ to help solve a global problem
    Bruce Friedrich, 46, is the executive director of the Good Food Institute and managing trustee of New Crop Capital, which both promote restructuring the meat industry away from animal slaughter. He lives in Washington.

    Would you call yourself an activist?

    Yes. Well ...

    Is there another term you would use?

    I’m a nonprofit executive. And a venture capitalist. New Crop Capital is focused on finding the companies that we believe will be maximally transformative, away from animal agriculture and toward plant-based and clean alternatives.

    Are all of the companies you focus on in the creating, like in the lab?

    We have invested in a few companies that are focused on meat and collagen that are cultured. At commercialization it will look like a beer brewery, but it will be for meat. So a meat brewery.

    You refer to it as meat? You don’t use quotation marks or anything?

    It’s meat. It’s the exact same thing, just grown in a different way. It’s cleaner, safer, transparent. There are tens of millions of illnesses from contaminated meat annually, thousands of people die. All of that goes away. At scale, it will be cheaper than beef, because it’s so much more efficient.

    How’d you get here?

    I ran a homeless shelter in D.C. as part of the Catholic Worker movement for six years. I came when I was 20. Mitch Snyder [at] the Community for Creative Non-Violence just opened my eyes. I knew about global poverty, but I didn’t really have the sense of what to do about it. And Mitch said, “This is an urgent situation — all of you need to join in the struggle to make things better for the poor.” And that really spoke to me. So I came to Washington, D.C., and he killed himself that summer , before I got there.

    Wow.

    Do you consider your work now helping global hunger as well?

    The Good Food Institute attempts to take ethics off the table for consumers. This is a solution to the end of the antibiotics era. This is a solution to climate change. The solution to global poverty. It seems to us that the likely solution is to just make the default choice that climate-friendly choice.

    Because relying on people’s ethics is …

    It’s a lot to ask.

    I Googled you. You streaked the queen [for PETA]!

    I had GoVeg.com written on my body. The Times of London reported “it is not known whether her majesty was forced to avert her eyes.” That is very close to a direct quote.

    You’re much more committed than most people are to causes they think are good.

    And there’s a degree to which that’s alienating, right? We’re trying to normalize what we’re doing and relate to people in a way that is not making people feel bad for the choices they’re making.

    So you’d rather be perceived as not an activist.

    Yes.

    You’re not an activist.

    I’m a nonprofit executive.
