Vegan Living

Those of us who consider omitting any type of animal sourced food or nutrients because of health issues or ethical reasons are known as Vegan.  This means we eat plant sources which consist of vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and nutritional oils from the same sources as well as beans and legumes for protein.

Many start out as vegetarians, using dairy and eggs as part of their diet and eventually evolve into becoming vegan and claim to have greater improvement in health.  An essential nutrient that must be included in the diet of a vegetarian or vegan is B12 as the only sources of B12 come from animal sources only. A lack of B12 could result in pernicious anemia and this in turn can cause complications in health, for which one turned to a vegan lifestyle in the first place.

Here is a great recipe I'd like to share with you. This is one of my favourite lunch options.

Egg-less Salad

  •  1 block organic firm tofu                    
  •  2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  •  ½ cup Veganaise                            
  •  salt and pepper to taste
  •  1/8 cup finely diced onion           
  •  1/8 tsp curry powder (optional)
  •  ¼ cup grated carrot
  •  ¼ cup finely chopped parsley
  •  1/8 cup nutritional yeast

Crumble tofu in a large bowl and mix in rest of ingredients.  Let sit for 10 minutes to blend flavours. Will keep in fridge for 3-5 days.
