goats cheese [12 Mar 2006|08:07pm]

Does anyone know if it is possible to get raw goats cheese from anyone around here? I went to Organza and they do carry goats cheese from local farmers but it is paturized and I'm looking for unpaturized stuff. (it can be legally sold because it is fermented long enough to deal with the bacteria that paturization kills)

Raw Foods books for sale [26 Dec 2005|03:03pm]

I have a Collection of 9 Raw Foods books. I paid over $400 for this collection and will sell for $250. Due to my food allergies I am finding I am not using any recipe books I own as there are only a couple recipes in each book that I can use, that is the only reason I am selling these, they are all great books. I have already sold my collection of vegan and vegetarian ones so now here are my raw ones. Most of these books can not be bought locally and so paying for shipping can be really expensive which means if you buy these new it can cost a lot. If you are not interested in the collection I have listed the retail prices for each one separately (not including shipping which is what made them so expensive to purchase in the first place and would make them more expensive for you to buy on your own), make an offer if you so desire. All of them are in near perfect condition with maybe a spill or two from use in the kitchen. The only exception is RGLFC which I would have to say is in good condition but definately well used.

- Vice Cream by Jeff Rogers $19
- Raw the Uncook Book by Juliano $50
- The Complete Book of Raw Food by Baird $38
- Living Cousine by Underkoffler $33
- Rainbow Green Live Food Cuisine (RGLFC) by Dr. Gabriel Cousens $35
- Living on Live Food by Alissa Cohen $50
- The Raw Gourmet by Nomi Shannon $30
- Raw in Ten Minutes by Bryan Au $20
- RAW by Charlie Trotter and Roxanne Klein $50

p.s. I hope this is okay to post here, the community info doesn't say anything about for sale ads

allergy free recipe request [16 Dec 2005|08:47pm]

I am posting this in a few vegetarian communities because I'd love any recipes I can find. I have a number of allergies and while I am quite happy with my limited (but healthy) daily diet once in a while I do want something different. If you know of a recipe I can have please let me know. Here are the foods I *can* eat:

- brown rice (organic only and this includes rice cakes and pasta)
- apples
- celery
- beets
- cucumber
- carrots
- organic frozen corn (have not had success with corn chips even organic)
- celtic sea salt
- fresh ginger
- garlic in small doses
- organic maple syrup
- raw plain cashews
- raw plain almonds
- fresh lemon juice in small doses
- olive oil

I just really want to have some kind of meal that I can cook that doesn't taste like the things I currently eat (salad with a nut based dressing, plain rice, rice cakes with maple syrup, and rice pasta with olive oil salt and garlic). All of the recipes I have looked at, including raw recipes, for real hearty meal type foods involve either potatoes, tomatoes, or legumes of some sort (usually soy) all of which I can not have. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have a dehydrator so I'll even go so far as cooking the rice, dehydrating it, grinding it down to a flour or whatever is needed if you have some recipe that calls for it.

Hi there -

I'm trying to write an article about people who feed their pets a vegetarian/vegan diet, and was wondering if anyone here does that and would be willing to participate in a mini-interview by email?

If you're interested, comment here or email me at tanya at interference dot com

Thanks a bunch!

Death/Cruelty Free Meat, Coming Soon to a Kitchen Near You [17 Aug 2005|04:08pm]
This community is ridiculously dead these days...

I wondering what you guys think about recent advances in the artifical meat world, developed by NASA.

"August 16, 2005 Experiments for NASA space missions have shown that small amounts of edible meat can be created in a lab. But the technology that could grow chicken nuggets without the chicken, on a large scale, may not be just a science fiction fantasy. In a recent paper in the Tissue Engineering journal, a team of scientists has proposed two new techniques of tissue engineering that may one day lead to affordable production of in vitro - lab grown - meat for human consumption."

"The idea of culturing meat is to create an edible product that tastes like cuts of beef, poultry, pork, lamb or fish and has the nutrients and texture of meat."

"'On the other hand, cultured meat could appeal to people concerned about food safety, the environment, and animal welfare, and people who want to tailor food to their individual tastes,' says Matheny. The paper even suggests that meat makers may one day sit next to bread makers on the kitchen counter."

Complete article: http://www.gizmag.com/go/4439/

Cultured meat would seem to address most (if not all) concerns of ethical vegetarians.

Would you eat it?

Roommates and I are doing a road trip from Vancouver to Montreal. Can you recommend good stops in your city? Co-op groceries, bookstores or what have you? Also, does anyone want up to seven kids and a dog tenting in their backyard? We're awesome, and we'll steal you toilet paper or make you vegan pancakes or both or something. :)

free kitty [07 Jun 2005|04:54pm]

hey all. i have an incredibly cute cat up for grabs. i found her when she was like 2 weeks old, abandoned in an alley. im extremly allergic to her, so shes been bouncing from house to house for the past couple of years. she got locked under a kitchen sink while our house burnt down three years ago and our other two cats died. since then she cant deal with being around other cats. so if you are presently cat-free, and are thinking about getting one, or are amazed by her super-hero-esq survival skills, please consider taking her. shes 5, spayed and has had all her shots. shes short-haired white with grey splotches, and comes complete with a litter box and lots of toys. shes really sweet and affectionate and will keep your toes warm all winter while she purrs. ive been asking random religous people and old ladies in cat sweatshirts but no one seems to need a cat right now. the people shes presently living with are moving and cant take her so i need someone soon. my only other option is a shelter where im afraid she'll either sit in a cage being sad or get killed. please?! anyone?! kell

Hey!!!!!!!! CUTE KITTEN FOR $25
I just moved into an apartment block in the village and got a kitten.
Shes super cute, all white, fluffy but doesnt shed, super sweet and shes 11 weeks old. I have toys and lots of food i'm throwing in the bundle.

I wish I could say I have enough time for a kitten but i honestly dont. i'm working way to much and didnt realize that i'm never home...I would love to find her a great home with an awsome owner. Shes had all her shots, a microchip and is scheduled for getting spayed at the humaine society on September 2nd. She does have a heart murmur but there isnt anything you can do for that really and you cant even tell. Shes super playful.
I'm only asking $25 dollars because of the microchip and toys n stuff that are all new.

email me <carapanting@hotmail.com>

Please excuse the cross-posting, but I'm really attached to this vegetarian-run coffeehouse, and would hate to see it go!

Interesting article about chemicals in farm bred fish:

Very similar to stuff Howard Lyman talked about when he was in Winnipeg last year.

WPG PETA PROTEST [30 Jul 2004|01:54pm]

As you may know, PETA has launched an international campaign against the
pet food company Iams, and we're staging a local demonstration soon to
protest against Iams' abuse of dogs and cats in laboratories.

A PETA undercover investigator working in an Iams contract pet food
laboratory found dogs and cats confined to barren cells, some for as
long as six years, and being forced to undergo painful, invasive
surgeries. You can help push IAMS to stop its cruel tests on animals!

Please join us for a demonstration on Thursday, August 12, at 11:45 am
at the Walmart at 1001 Empress Street. Bring your friends, family
members, neighbors, and co-workers. We'll have posters, leaflets, and
everything else you need.

Please call Allison Ezell at 757-943-7452 or email AllisonE@peta.org if
you have any questions or plan to attend. We look forward to seeing you
