Here is an easy salad dressing that I made today for lunch:
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1 T agave or maple syrup
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
(you can use raw cashews instead of nutritional yeast if you like)
1/2 cup of raw sunflower seeds
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice (about 1/2 a lemon)
1 teaspoon sea salt
dash of asaphoetida
mix it all in the blender until creamy :)
it should last just about a week in the fridge. It will separate, so just mix it or shake it up before using again.
Oh yeah... and put it on salad :)
These are a couple a really well done videos of a talk given by a Dr. Neal Barnard about exactly what meat and dairy do to our bodies and why it is crucial that we cut them out immediately:
Have a lovely day!

Hello fine friends around the world! I am thinking of you this morning- so proud to be in association with those who care about themselves, our planet, and the people and animals who live here with us :)
I just heard about the massive earthquake and tsunami in Japan, and my heart is breaking. Let's pray for the souls who are suffering over there.
1000 Year Old Vegan Poem
I No Longer Steal From Nature
You are diseased in understanding and religion.
Come to me, that you may hear something of sound truth.
Do not unjustly eat fish the water has given up,
And do not desire as food the flesh of slaughtered animals,
Or the white milk of mothers who intended its pure draught
for their young, not noble ladies.
And do not grieve the unsuspecting birds by taking eggs;
for injustice is the worst of crimes.
And spare the honey which the bees get industriously
from the flowers of fragrant plants;
For they did not store it that it might belong to others,
Nor did they gather it for bounty and gifts.
I washed my hands of all this; and wish that I
Perceived my way before my hair went gray!
~ Al-Ma’arri (973-1057), Baghdad (modern Iraq)
