vegan bakery: replacing non-vegan ingredients. 7 y
Turning vegan doesn’t mean you have to give up on all your favourite things.
Bakery scares a lot of people, both vegans and non-vegans. If you’re not experienced, you just never know whether baking soda or yeast will actually work the way you want it. Turning vegan doesn’t mean you have to give up on all your favourite things. Almost all the baking recipes can be adapted to be fully vegan and yet tasty.
I have to admit, I don’t have the patience to strictly respect the recipe, which is why not all my vegan bakery turns well. However, I have mastered a few basic things that work just fine.

Expensive organic food does not affect the risk of cancer 9 y
Professor Tim Key (Oxford University) stated: "the Study was conducted on a large sample of middle-aged women in the UK, and we found no evidence that the cancer risk was lower among those who usually ate organic food. As for non-Hodgkin lymphoma, it is necessary to conduct additional research.
Popular, albeit expensive foods obtained by using ”clean” technologies that do not contribute to reducing the risk of cancer. To this unexpected conclusion was made by British researchers, who published their results in serious medical edition of the British Journal of Cancer. In more accessible form about the results of their work, told the Daily Mail.
Still was considered axiomatic that organic (or organic) meat, milk, fruits, vegetables healthier. And this is understandable: such plants are grown without the use of fertilizers and pesticides, animals not being fed antibiotics and use ... read more
Finnish organic food is no longer a niche business 9 y
Why in Finland the area of trade, which was specially created for small shops and markets, is absorbed by large retailers, and not having time to develop? As a niche business must sometimes remain a niche business?
The last couple of years in Finland were especially popular stores organic food. They followed the fashion worldwide movement about buying local organic products (in Finnish variant lähiruoka). On the one hand, the idea was based on the desire to stimulate the agriculture of the country. The slogan read: buying local - you are supporting an adequate standard of living in rural areas.
Organic food, on the other hand, implies that farmers refuse to pesticides because they have the opportunity to sell their products in nearby markets, and not take in other countries. Also, without spending ... read more
Dr. Manny: CDC must control Ebola quarantines, honor system 9 y
I wish this doctor a speedy recovery, and I would love to hear his side of the story once he gets out of the hospital.
I think that the approach that is being taken by the federal government— the concept of “It’s a matter of time before we see another case”— reveals a poor strategy. Yesterday, New York City had its first case of an Ebola-infected patient. Identified as Dr. Craig Spencer, he is an emergency room physician who everybody knew had recently returned from West Africa, where he was treating Ebola victims with the non-profit, Doctors Without Borders.
Luckily enough, this health care professional, when he became flagrantly ill, immediately called emergency services and thankfully was descriptive ... read more
You don’t have to be vegan to choose cruelty-free clothing. 9 y
Do you make excuses and actually buy clothing and shoes that contain animal products such as leather, feathers or down? Do you think this can still be justified in the conditions when we have so many alternatives on the market?
Let’s start with the fact that technologies nowadays had incredibly evolved and wearing fur coats to stay warm is absolutely pointless. Let me just remind you of the group of Russian scientists that went to the North Pole in the early 20th century. They all had clothes made of natural fabrics and materials such as: wool pullovers, fur coats, cotton underneath pants and shirts. None of them actually survived, because they didn’t have the adequate clothing. The issue with natural fabrics in winter is that they make you sweat easily, but then all this sweat is a ... read more
