cupcakes is an awesome book. i just got vegan with a vengence for christmas.
becoming vegetarian and cooking with no animal products has really changed the way i look at foods completely, it has made me much more aware of nutrition and a balanced diet, where food comes from and its function in your body. i wish someone one had told me how interesting cooking was and how important whole foods are. you can do tons of things with grains and vegetables, its amazing. i certainly appreciate food a lot more now.  i often think about what it would have taken for be to become vegetarian sooner.

I wish someone had told me I was a hypocrite for saying i was compassionate and an animal lover. and you know what yes you can live without cheese and milkchocolate.

you know.. i hope meateaters check this board once in a while too..
4  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Sources of protein for vegetarians? on: December 30, 2006 11:10:34 PM
legumes and grains!! and nuts too

actually, if you combine whole grains with beans and legumes it is definately even a better source of protein than meat or dairy because this will make them complete proteins. quinoa (a delicious grain) actually has more protein than cows milk and there are lentils for example, they have plenty of protein and I suggest you also look into miso and tempeh as well.

make sure you get on a well balanced diet because protein is not the only thing
you or I guess your parents should be concerned about when it comes to your health. I find if you eat a lot of whole foods and educate yourself on what your body needs, everything will fall into place and you won't have to be worried about protein in particular.

I definatley suggest you read up on nutition and vegetarian diets
there are many helpful websites out there about nutrition and cooking.


good luck and cheers

thanks for the recipe- it was delicious!
I'm going to make more real soon.

Let's see.. I made some quinoa taboleh salad the other day I found in my University paper, here in montreal.
It's super healthy, here it is. and here's a link to her site. Smiley
look around, it's great.

1 1/4 C. Quinoa
2 C. canned or cooked Chickpeas
1 med. Cucumber (quartered length wise, and sliced)
2 med. tomatoes (diced)
2 to 3 garlic cloves
1/4 C. Lemon Juice
1/4 C. Flaxseed Oil or Olive Oil
sea salt or kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

and so you cook the Quinoa after you rinse it in a fine strainer
btw you can also use couscous. Look quinoa up on wikipedia if you dont know what it is, because I sure didn't. It has the highest protein and calcium content of any grain Smiley more than cows milk too. it's especially good if you're looking minimize on the wheat.
ok so then as you let the quinoa cook (1 cup of grain 2 c of water)
combine the other ingredients in a large bowl and combine the two once the quinoa cools down.

so heres the link, she's amazing
and i want to try everything on the site.


congrats to your boyfriend as well.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: A denim question (Skinny Jeans) on: October 13, 2006 10:10:34 PM
one side has a less thick of a seam than the other, some jeans it's the seam from the inside, others its the one of the outside of the leg. and so just sew where the less thick seam is, cut off the triangle and it should be fine. then again, i have never done this to flare jeans, that might be totally different...
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: How long "should" a scarf be? on: October 08, 2006 12:16:48 AM
it's funny that you mentioned your mom because my mom particularly thinks
scarves i make should be as long as possible.
ideally, knee length is perfect for me.
short scarves a nice too, if they are thick enough.

i dont know if anyone said this already but
dye your jeans black so the color difference won't be as drastic.
