Single Story About Veganism

Do you think this calf wanted to be separated from its mother?

When I first told two of my friends this past summer that I was a vegetarian but would soon be transitioning to veganism, I got the response that probably every vegan has got ins some form of another. One of my friends looked at me and said “Don’t go vegan, vegans are so annoying.” After she said this I wasn’t mad because I knew that she only knows one side of vegans, the side that people try to criticize and make jokes about. Trying to brush her comment off I responded by saying, “They’re not annoying they are passionate.” Continue reading “Single Story About Veganism”

Odd things that aren’t Vegan

When I first started learning about the vegan lifestyle there are several foods and ingredients that to my surprise were not vegan.

For starters I was shocked that marshmallows are not vegan, that they actually contain gelatin, which is derived from the collagen inside animals’ skin and bones. So, if its gelatin that makes marshmallows not vegan, other products and foods that have gelatin in them are typically not vegan as well. A few of these other products are cakes, puddings, candies, shampoos, yogurt, pharmaceuticals (as coatings and as capsules), and photography (on film). (Just to add there are vegan marshmallows available on the market.)marshmallows-788771_960_720 Continue reading “Odd things that aren’t Vegan”

Making Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes

img_4512Today, I was flipping through my “Vegan Cookbook for Beginners” and found the recipe for Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes. Considering that my younger sister has celiac disease I thought this would be an interesting recipe to try out.

When gathering and prepping the ingredients, I forgot to consider cutting the recipe in half. So, if you want only 12 cupcakes instead of 24 make sure to cut the measurements in half.

What the recipe calls for:

(the measurements in ( ) I added to indicate what you would need for half of the recipe)
  • 1¾ cups (½ cup 6 tbsp) of Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour
  • ¾ cup (6tbsp) of Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 2 (1) teaspoons of Baking Soda
  • 1 (½) teaspoon of Baking Powder
  • 2 (1) cups of Evaporated Cane Juice (in other words Organic Cane Sugar)
  • 2 (1) cups of Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • ½ (1/4) cup of Melted Coconut Oil
  • 1 (½) tablespoon of Distilled White Vinegar
  • 1 (½) teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  • 4 (2) tablespoons of Warm Water
  • 1 (½) tablespoon of Ener-G Egg Replacer
