Wednesday: Vegan Points
Nobody loves fruits and vegetables like vegans...
- Now, even though I don’t eat pizza anymore, something about a vegan pizza party doesn’t sit well with my Italian blood. Makeshift We Are recently had the boys over for a techno dance party with plenty of vegan cheese:
The boys were VERY excited to see each other, and we wanted to run some energy out. Well, they ran around, but still had lots of energy! We got back to Clay's house, and made pizza for supper, then the boys danced around crazy to some techno-dance music that Lucas brought over. They all had fun.
- Lucifer’s Colored Chalk is blogging about a new study claiming less meat and more veggies is effective at treating Type 2 diabetes:
The researchers found that a low-fat vegetarian diet may be even more effective at treating Type 2 diabetes symptoms than the standard diet recommended by the American Diabetes Association.

- For some people sticking with a vegan diet isn’t easy. The Unlikely Vegan talks about her three month transition towards becoming 100% vegan:
Okay, so I'm not 100% there yet. I've been at it for about 3 months now (more like 2 1/2) and the transitioning process for myself and my family is going okay. I've hit some bumps along the way but it's getting there. My husband still comes home from the grocery store with what he thought were some good vegan buys, and lo and behold, there's something in it like whey or casein. He's not that great at reading labels.
- Did you know Quaker Oats don’t have any cholesterol? I don’t eat them so it doesn’t make much difference to me, but My Life As A Vegan wanted to know for sure. Check out what the Quaker Oats Canada website had to say:
Cholesterol is only found in foods sourced from mammals, birds or fish, and since oats are a grain product they do not contain cholesterol. An easy way to remember which foods contain cholesterol is to ask yourself whether the product came from something that used to walk, fly or swim. If so, it contains cholesterol.
Here's the link to Quaker Oats Canada.
